i have DevStack in a Hyper-V VM environment with a Firewall. I can get to the gui through nat/fw rule. but i cant log in. BUT i can login from with in the vm network, the password is dead simple and works inside but not outside. Does this have to do with dns or local.conf or openrc ? im thinking becouse from outside im hitting a diff IP since nat and tha somehow gets messed up

also where are the logs for all this ?


doesn't seem to be helpful im probably looking at this wrong is HAproxy involved here >?

Normally, Devstack doesn't deploy HA-Proxy (please don't imply from this statement that it deploys it ever :). These days, use journalctl to find logs.

Sorry I have no tips for the actual problem.

GOT IT. i fat fingered the password every single time. turns on. I type it out slowly and tried two browser and it worked..all outisde of the firewall.

and Bernd Bausch reminded me journalctl is a thing and systemd ftw with its new stuff jorunald

keystone/flash will do the authentication and i saw the logs with the username

journalctl -f | grep -i user

Best practice, especially useful when tired, alcoholised or otherwise impaired: Write the password somewhere in clear text, copy it and paste it into the password prompt.

Personally, I think journald is a huge improvement over the way Devstack used to manage logs.
