Openstack Liberty Error: Unable to retrieve volume limit information.

After an Openstack Liberty deployment  you may encounter the following error: Error: Unable to retrieve volume limit information. OR Danger: There was an error submitting the form. Please try again.

unable to retreive size limit

These errors are a result of a miss-configuration within CINDER, to resolve this all you need to do is edit the ‘/etc/cinder/cinder.conf‘ file and make sure the following two lines exist

[keystone_authtoken]
auth_uri = http://keystone_ip:5000
auth_url = http://keystone_ip:35357
auth_plugin = password
project_domain_id = default
user_domain_id = default
project_name = services
username = cinder
password = [ccinder password] <- find from answer file. password is stored in CONFIG_CINDER_KS_PW

After you had verified or added the lines you will need to restart the cinder services by running:

# service openstack-cinder-api restart
# service openstack-cinder-backup restart
# service openstack-cinder-scheduler restart
# service openstack-cinder-volume restart
