Controller( /etc/nova/nova.conf:

vnc_enabled = True
vncserver_host =
vncserver_listen =
vncproxy_url =
vncserver_proxyclient_address =

compute( /etc/nova/nova.conf:

vnc_enabled = True
vncserver_listen =
vncserver_proxyclient_address =
vncproxy_url =

This compute is configured to access Xenserver 6.2, and the /etc/nova/nova-compute.conf:

xenapi_connection_url = 
xenapi_connection_username = root
xenapi_connection_password = xxxxxxxx
xenapi_vif_driver = nova.virt.xenapi.vif.XenAPIOpenVswitchDriver

xenapi_ovs_integration_bridge = xenapi
xenapi_torrent_images = none
sr_matching_filter = default-sr:true

When I tried to access the console through Dashboard, I am facing "Failed to connect to server code: 1006. Any solution ?

PS: With above configuration, I can access the console of VM of Vmware vCenter through Dashboard of Openstack. Thanks.

Try to use Xen api to get console from controller machine:

xm console <id of="" the="" vm="">

XL - Console or XN - Console

[root@xenserver-fskqadde ~]# xl console 4

-sh: xm: not found


The terminal was frozen, need to close and reopen and relogin.
