[heat] [kolla] Stack creation fails

I'm using a heat template to try and build an Openstack cluster on VMs and it is failing in 2 different ways. It starts out fine for both:

(openstack) [abraden at chrnc-dev-os-build-01 kolla_multinode]$ os stack create -t kolla_multinode.yaml upgrade-stack

| updated_time        | None                                                                                   |
| stack_status        | CREATE_IN_PROGRESS                                                                     |
| stack_status_reason | Stack CREATE started                                                                   |

Sometimes it stays in CREATE_IN_PROGRESS status for a long time, and when I look at volumes I see one or more volumes stuck in "creating" status [1]. If I set the stuck volumes to "error" status then heat retries and the cluster builds successfully.

Other times the keypair fails. First it goes to DELETE_COMPLETE status and then to CREATE_FAILED [2], and the the stack goes to CREATE_FAILED status. When this happens no volumes are created, and I haven't found a workaround for this failure.

Where should I be looking for the issue? Nothing in the log is jumping out at me. RMQ and keystone seem fine. Searching for the id of the failed stack or the stuck volume in /var/log/kolla/* doesn't find any errors or warnings.
