Then make sure the metadata service is set up in iptables:

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -d -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT --to-destination 172.16.1.X:8773

Add that line to /etc/rc.local before “exit 0”.

Restart networking:

/etc/init.d/networking restart

Finish up the configuration file /etc/nova/nova.conf:
--sql_connection=mysql://nova:[email protected]/nova

Restart everything else:

restart libvirt-bin; restart nova-network; restart nova-compute;
restart nova-api; restart nova-objectstore; restart nova-scheduler

Make an admin user and project (whatever you want to call it):

/usr/bin/nova-manage user admin {user_name}
/usr/bin/nova-manage project create {project_name} {user_name}

Finish the guide from this point on:
Creating Certificates

And you should be good to go.
