I have working Grizzly environment in my lab. So for everything worked fine. But now I can launch the instance with selected flavor and Keypair with it. Then I tried accessing the machine using SSH keypair but failed. It seems the flavour and keypair information which I allocated is not injected into the instance.

Can anyone help me with solutions ?

Steps: Add ssh rule in your security groups

Create a key pair in dashboard,store your private key

Give proper permission to private key (400)

Associate key pair and launch Ubuntu cloud instance

Associate floating IP

From host machine; ssh -i <private.key> ubuntu@<floating ip="">

Also provide log errors when you get errors.

Thanks for your response Mr.Shankar. Problem now I am facing is not only SSH access. It seems that what we declared in instance flavor like Swap, Disk space is not allocated to the machine. The same openstack setup in which I had launched few instance using ubuntu cloud image still working properly. But the problem is with new instance. It seems problem when injecting instance information like keypair, swap memory, disk space & user name while launching the instance.
