Start by looking at your log files.

/var/log/nova - nova-scheduler.log - nova-api.log  is a good place to start, also syslog
/var/log/quantum also has a lot of information

Hi All,

I have an installation of Openstack+quantum+openvswitch plugin
To do that I carefully followed instructions from this guide:
(so there you can find basically any info about my configuration files)

Everything looks working fine BUT when I finally try to create a new istance (either from command line OR web interface) I only get VM eternally  in "spawning" state (see snapshot below):

Thanks in advance for any help!
