I have installed open stack to test environment and I can see the console on the web browser. But once I started the machine it goes to the starting prompt but I cannot input anything from the key board. It says to click on the gray color tab if not responding and I did so. But it fails to get the key board input. iptables are down and selinux disable.

Did anyone has come across this type of situation. Appreciate your responses.

Thanks SAchinthana

Hi Sachinthana!

Typically on the bar saying If console is not responding to keyboard input: click the grey status bar below. Click here to show only console you also have a link. Try clicking 'Click here to show only console' link, a new page will be displayed, with the console only. You should be able to send keyboard inputs.

You can also click in the gray area to grab input. You can run into the same issue with the page showing only the console, though it is less of an issue since there is much more gray area.

Do you see a login screen or a complete black window? Could you give commands through CLI with nova console-log command? Do you see any error in your nova log files?

HI Antonio,

Since testing machine is on the office I couldn't come back to you. I remove all the networks and re add. Some times there may be some mistake. Now I can input without any problem. Thanks for the support given.

REGARDS, Sachinthana
