The issue is with Openstack Keystone Service which we have configured using httpd deamon in answers.cfg file ( configuration file used to install Openstack using packstack)


Now openstack-keystone service will not start as http service is already in started mode and we haven’t created any relation between openstack-keystone and http service.
