The location for the locks is determined by the --lock_path setting in
nova.conf. This is apparently set to the base path where the nova
python code lives ($pybasedir) in devstack:
2012-04-14 21:35:42 DEBUG nova.service [-] lock_path : /opt/stack/nova
from (pid=3700) wait /opt/stack/nova/nova/service.py:442
Since, that directory has a bunch of important files in it, certainly
don't follow my previous advice and remove all the files in that
directory. There is a bug
) about nova not cleaning
up locks that should have been fixed in essex-4. As part of the fix
to that Mike Pittaro wrote a cleanup locks script that should be in
/opt/stack/nova/tools/clean_file_locks.py. Try running that and let
us know if that fixed it. If not look for *.lock files in
