mismatch in documentation
This probably doesn't belong here, but I thought it's worth to document this somewhere.
According to this page in the documentation:
The mysql root user password is set to nova, but privileges for the nova database usage is given to the "nova" user, who has the password "notnova"
it seems like you should use the 'root' user with the 'nova' password in the conf file... it should probably be the 'nova' user with the 'notnova' password. at least only this way it worked for me. you could probably also give the root user privileges for the nova db... anyways, it would probably be more helpful to have that information in the documentation.
Can you help with this problem?
