I hope someone can advise me. I've been trying for days to read everything I can find and haven't got it figured out yet. Thanks, Steve 


Two things:

	1. Your /etc/nova/nova.conf file appears to have a lot of weird spaces. I assume this is an artifact of copy/paste, but you should check that.
	2.  The console output that you include (end of email) shows the instance kernel panics due to a missing / bad filesystem. What image are you using ? Are you sure it is really booting ? You can check this (assuming that you are using KVM since you don't specify it in the nova.conf file), by running a 'ps -ef' and checking for a KVM process.

Assuming that the image is actually up and responding, chances are the issue is somewhere in your iptables setup. What does 'sudo iptables -L -t nat' return ?
