Hi Melvin,
   Thanks for the response. I have already turned on debug mode. I will keep digging into the logs further. Do u know of any document that clearly explains the sequence once we issue a openstack server create. This will help me narrow down the issue. I have another setup with ocata and it works fine in that env.

I would recommend grepping for the request ID across all logs if they are centralized. Additionally if you have not turned on debugging, more than likely doing so for at least nova-scheduler prior to trying to spin up an instance again should help. Providing error messages is generally beneficial as if you are not able to see any there is really no way for anyone to assist without some additional details so I first suggest you look a bit more at all your logs and in general your environment and provide a bit more detail for assistance. Hope this helps.

Hi All,
   I have installed openstack queens using packstack on a multimode setup. One controller and two compute nodes.
Openstack hypervisor list shows all 3 compute nodes as up.
I was able to spinup about 5 servers and all of them got hosted on the controller node which is also a compute.
When I try to spin the 6th server it is getting stuck at the build state. Looks like it is not able to use the other two compute nodes.
I have already verified all the cells_v2 settings and they all look ok.
Can one of you please let me know what logs to check to understand what is causing this issue.
None of the Nova logs on the controller has any errors..
Any help to resolve this is greatly appreciated.
