[Openstack-operators] [Nova] Question about starting nova as service versus directly

Hi Adam,

I've seen this happen due to permission issues. Regardless of running with
sudo, upstart is dropping to the "nova" user.

I usually debug this by setting a shell on the nova user, sudoing/su'ing to
nova, then running nova-compute from there. It should die with an error
message of the cause.

Hope that helps,
