Hi All, I have installed stein version on the two node setup(node1:controller+network and node2:compute).used centos7. i have launched the centos7.4 image successfully . then i tried to get the console login but it shows just below errors:

After launching the vm when i goto the console tab of the vm ..console is not coming up...what could be the just displays

This site can’t be reached controller took too long to respond. Search Google for controller 6080 vnc auto ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT

In the logs tab of the shows the login info...

**CentOS Linux 7 (Core)

Kernel 3.10.0-514.el7.x86_64 on an x86_64

localhost login:**

Some extra nova logs:

2019-09-05 04:49:10.772 38292 INFO nova.privsep.libvirt [-] Ignored error while reading from instance console pty: [Errno 11] Resource temporarily unavailable 2019-09-05 04:58:27.475 37908 INFO nova.compute.manager [req-990f7d1f-152d-4db3-bbde-412edcb11712 6fcca6889f5343b7871bc

There is note in the stein compute service configure on the controller node:

Note: nova-consoleauth is deprecated since 18.0.0 (Rocky) and will be removed in an upcoming release. Console proxies should be deployed per cell. If performing a fresh install (not an upgrade), then you likely do not need to install the nova-consoleauth service. See workarounds.enable_consoleauth for details.




Enable the consoleauth service to avoid resetting unexpired consoles.


Console token authorizations have moved from the nova-consoleauth service to the database, so all new consoles will be supported by the database backend.


Is there any extra settings have to do other than installing nova-consoleauth ? i tried installing the nova-consoleauth but it shows package not available .
