Hello, I 've a little problem. When I'm in my dashboard, and after that I created my instance (Status=Active, Power State=running), I can't start the console.

The error:

If console is not responding to keyboard input: click the grey status bar below. Click here to show only console

Maybe somebody has an idea...

What happens when you click the grey status bar?

Try those properties (controller node):

novnc_enable=true
novncproxy_base_url=http://172.20.12.102:6080/vnc_auto.html
vncserver_proxyclient_address=172.20.12.102
vncserver_listen=0.0.0.0

If compute node address is: e.g 172.20.12.103

vncserver_proxyclient_address=172.20.12.103

Other properties values are same.

Is there a "real error"? Is there a black square below the line "If console is not responding to keyboard input: click the grey status bar below. Click here to show only console" ?

If the plugin is started properly an error code like "Failed to connect to server (code: 1006)" would appear. You also can try clicking "Click here to show only console" and do a refresh a few times.

Also some general tips for vnc access: http://docs.openstack.org/trunk/openstack-compute/admin/content/faq-about-vnc.html

I use Firefox or Chrome. It's the same result. Few days ago, I could connect me in my instance with the console VNC, but some few times, I've the error: "Failed to connect to server (code: 1006)". When I try clicking "Click here to show only console" and do a refresh a few times: same result..

This is my configuration for VNC:

novncenabled=true

novncproxyport=6080 novncproxybaseurl=http://172.16.118.200:6080/vncauto.html

vncserverlisten=172.16.118.200

Before I could connect me on my instance with VNC, but now I've: "Failed to connect to server (code: 1006)"
