Bug Description

About Openstack's Documentation for Rocky document in Compute service – nova installation for Rocky ------> Verify operation, normally executed by document, will display one less nova-consoleauth in step 2, so execute openstack compute service list You need to start nova-consoleauth before the operation, as follows:

   systemctl enable openstack-nova-consoleauth.service
   systemctl start openstack-nova-consoleauth.service

OK this is a rough translation, but I think the bug is saying that this step in the install guide shows the nova-consoleauth:

https://docs.openstack.org/nova/rocky/install/verify.html

But the earlier steps in the install guide don't mention when to start the nova-consoleauth service?

That might be residue of the nova-consoleauth service being deprecated in the Rocky release...will have to investigate.

summary: - 安装帮助文档有误
+ Installation help documentation is incorrect

Yeah looking at this page in queens you see the nova-consoleauth service being installed and started:

https://docs.openstack.org/nova/queens/install/controller-install-ubuntu.html

But not in Rocky:

https://docs.openstack.org/nova/rocky/install/controller-install-ubuntu.html

That is because of this change: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/557489/

So we probably want to remove the nova-consoleauth mention from the verify page if we don't tell you to install/start it:

https://docs.openstack.org/nova/rocky/install/verify.html
