I have a single machine running an entire Grizzly stack with Keystone, Glance, Cinder, Quantum, Nova, Nova-compute and Horizon.

I can launch instances and everything seems to be working as it should however I cannot get horizon dashboard to update my novnc address. It keeps defaulting to

I have made the settings changes in nova.conf, nova-compute.conf, api-paste.ini

If I click the link "show only console" I get the same issue, however I can change to the correct IP and I get the console and everything works as it should so my authentication, tokens and process seems to be working as they should it's just the horizon IFrame that refuses to update the novnc IP

I've tried search and grepping for any instance of novnc or but I just can't find it anywhere, I found the launchpad page at listed under openstack-dashboard. I did not see any bugs related to novnc. versions for novncproxy and openstack-dashboard(horizon) are both 2013.1

UPDATE: I tried to uninstall openstack-dashboard apt-get remove --purge openstack-dashboard. I reinstalled ensuring all settings were correct in the conf files with no success.

Make sure you restart nova-api and nova-novncproxy service after changing the config. :)
