text in example above versus text in the "warning"

- Chapter 7, Installing Nova Packages, Page 48, text of vgcreate command versus test of the warning about it. The problem is the vgcreate command specifies the name as "nova-volumes" (plural), where as the warning text specifies the name as "nova-volume" (singular). The vgcreate command is shown as sudo vgcreate nova-volumes /dev/sde1 But the warning text says Your volume group needs to be called nova-volume for nova-volume to recognize it. Volumes will not work with another volume group name.

Note from the Author or Editor:
This is a typo. The flag --volume_group defaults to "nova-volumes" unless you change it in the nova.conf file.

last paragraph

- Chapter 7, Installing Nova Packages, Page 48, "To start iSCSI service...". On my install, the file /etc/default/iscsitarget did not exist. I "created" it by installing the iscsitarget package with the following command: sudo apt-get install iscsitarget Then I was able to successfully execute the sed and service commands.

Note from the Author or Editor:
hmmm ... this came with my initial install. Did you pick the "virtualization" host option during the install ? I will add this to the book anyway. At worst, it will tell you that you already have it installed.

Configure OpenStack

- Chapter 7, Configure OpenStack, Page 50. Isn't the configuration file pathname /etc/nova/nova.conf (not /etc/nova.conf)?

Note from the Author or Editor:
This is typo -- when developing your file in etc/nova.conf and I must have copied and pasted inappropriately.

"Configuration Files" section

nova.conf does support comments as long as they are on a new line and have a hash tag at the beginning of the line. The example nova.conf files on this page both are working in test or production systems with comments.
