I have a Controller node and Compute node on Ubuntu 12.04, grizzly release. I can successfully create a VM, but I cannot reach console of the VM. It says "noVNC ready: native WebSockets, canvas rendering" and stays like this forever. I tried different browsers and nothing works. The screen stays gray forever but does not bring the console.

Controller Node (Running novnc, nova-novncproxy, nova-consoleauth)

nova.conf file: novncproxy_host= novncproxy_port=6080 novncproxy_base_url=

Compute Node (Running nova-compute)

nova.conf file: vnc_enabled=true vncserver_proxyclient_address= novncproxy_base_url= xvpncproxy_base_url= vncserver_listen=

OK I found the solution, The problem was that my Ubuntu kernel is broken, because of some debian packages I downloaded. I reinstalled the ubuntu and reinstalled all of the components, it is working fluently now. I better not to mix debian and ubuntu repo in the future :)

Hi Can you please tell me how did you reinstall the system?. Did you use the same debian packages again?

Nope, just use Ubuntu repo of Openstack. When you install Debian repo on ubuntu you better re-install OS :))
