Dear all,

I have installed the openstack Ocata on 3 nodes with RDO repository. I got the successful installation message. However launching dashboard says " Could Not Connect Description: Could not connect to the requested server host. "

Any Idea?

How ever from my LAN I am able to access the "apache test page" with the same IP address.

Does "launch the dashboard" mean running the horizon server under Apache or directing your browser to the controller? Where do you see the error message, browser, command line, log file, elsewhere?

Also what do you mean by "successful installation message"? How did you install OpenStack?

The horizon is configured under apache as virtual host. The message comes on the browser. The installation process with done by generating answer file and changing the nodes information in answer file. follow the instructions from RDO site. packstack --answer-file=answer.cfg

So what happens precisely? You enter the URL, then get the error? Or you get the login form, enter credentials, then get the error? Or get the error at a different stage?

In any case, you need to check the log files, probably /var/log/httpd(???) and /var/log/horizon.

Getting error message after accessing the dashboard with ip or hostname on the browser no login page appears on the screen. The screen show the above mentioned message on the page instead of login screen.

The preferred way to specify the order of dashboar ds and the default dashboard is the pluggable dashboard mechanism (in /usr/share /openstack-d

Bernd Bausch Thanks for helping.

changing the ownership to apache on "/usr/share/openstack-dashboard/openstack_dashboard/local/"* directory resolved the problem.

Thanks again.
