I have a MaaS setup and on top of that I'm trying deploying openstack, following the video at

The problem I am having is that the keystone charm keeps saying that there is an install error. I have no idea where to look and see what went wrong.

Where should I start on trying to figure out what is not working? Is there a log or anything I can look at?

I'm using 12.04 for the MaaS server and the MaaS nodes.

You can find the answer to this in our debugging hooks section of the docs.

What you'll need to do is launch debug-hooks from the Juju client machine, then resolve the error with the --retry flag (or retry from the Juju Gui if you are using it). This will re-execute the hook and trap the event in the debug-hooks window. From there you will be in the right directory to run the hook file by typing hooks/<name-of-failed-hook> to get output. When you are done, simply press Ctrl D to exit the terminal and signal to Juju that the hook is finished executing.

(Taken from another answer to really the same problem).
