Sorry for the slow response.  You might want to try determining the the
IP of the controller node that seems to be in error and ssh-ing into
that node via the heat-user.

If you are able to access the failed node, you can typically look at the
os-collect-config log via:

sudo journalctl -u os-collect-config

A lot of times this will provide at least a good start on what the root
cause is.

It sounds like you already have some of the basics[1] down for debugging
heat issues, but I wanted to re-paste a very handy link in case you had
not seen it before.
