I have installed a fresh Horizon Dashboard on CentOS 6.5 64 bit following the link ( . When I try to log in it comes with the " An error occurred authenticating. Please try again later." erorr. I dont recall setting up a username or password for the system. i have tried to login as username "admin" and password "admin" or "password" or "secrete". They all fail. When I looked at apache error logs I get the follwing errors.

[Mon Feb 17 21:40:25 2014] [error] Login failed for user "admin". [Mon Feb 17 21:40:32 2014] [error] Login failed for user "admin".
[Mon Feb 17 21:40:47 2014] [error] Login failed for user "admin".
[Mon Feb 17 22:02:07 2014] [error] Login failed for user "admin".

Can someone let me know why I cannot login ?

Have a look in your keystone log, does keystone run? It would be always recommendable to create a demo user and try with that user.

Yes keystone is running. I did have to run source keystonerc to set enviornment variables. then I ran openstack-status with output == Keystone service == openstack-keystone: active == Horizon service == openstack-dashboard:active And when I login now. I get Soemthing when wrong on UI.

You should log in with a user that exists in Keystone, which it seems you've found. Can you paste the content of the httpd log when you see the 'Something went wrong' screen? There should be a traceback in it with more information on the error.

Try Logging in using any of user credentials created by keystone. ( "admin" or "nova" or "glance" )
