Thanks, this helped a lot.

The vm was on a node running nova-compute and nova-network only.

Turned out the metadata service was available after i have started
nova-api on top of that.

I though nova-api was not needed on boxes running nova-compute ? (i have
it running on a "manager" node that do not launch vms).

Was my assumption wrong or is there something special to do to have the
metadata service available without running nova-api ?
