Have you enabled serial console support on your compute nodes? You would need to edit /etc/nova/nova.conf on those systems, and set:


# Location of serial console proxy. (string value)

# IP address on which instance serial console should listen
# (string value)

# The address to which proxy clients (like nova-serialproxy)
# should connect (string value)


  • <public_ip> is the public ip address of whichever host is running nova-serialproxy, and

  • <host_ip> is the ip address of your compute host.

The serial console configuration is very similar to the VNC console configuration.

I wrote up some serial console documentation here.
