  incorrect nova.conf file example in Ubuntu Cloud page

Status in Ubuntu Server Guide:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  On the Ubuntu Cloud page, under the section, "Install OpenStack
  Compute (Nova)" -> "Edit /etc/nova/nova.conf and add the following:"
  the options are all prepended with "--".  If you do this, the "nova-
  manage db sync" command will emit an error(*) and no tables will be
  created in the mysql database.  Removing the hyphens from the options
  and restarting the servers (which might not be necessary) allowed the
  db sync to succeed.

  If you go here:
  And look at the "Known Issues" -> "OpenStack" section, you will see the first entry is about the switch in option format which I believe is relevant here.

  (*) The db sync error was, "DEBUG nova.utils [-] backend <module
  'nova.db.sqlalchemy.migration' from '/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-
  packages/nova/db/sqlalchemy/migration.pyc'> from (pid=388)
  __get_backend /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/nova/utils.py:494"
