I installed ICEhouse on Window8.1 Host and VMware VMs - 4 node ( Controller, Compute, Network, Block Storage).

But I cannot connect to the instance with ssh private key. So I check instance console log and check like following.

when instance is launched, (I checked console log lists) even though instance connects to , the log shows fail message.

failed 1/20: up 18.98. request failed
failed 2/20: up 21.51. request failed
failed 3/20: up 23.76. request failed
failed 4/20: up 26.02. request failed
failed 5/20: up 28.28. request failed
failed 6/20: up 30.51. request failed
failed 7/20: up 32.93. request failed
failed 8/20: up 35.16. request failed
failed 9/20: up 37.38. request failed

As I know, when instance is made, nova-api-metadata service can be connected and then ssh public key is injected.

So I checked ssh pulbic key is not injected into instance correctly.

So I checked metadata section in admin guide, , the guide said in multi-host mode, I should inject metadata_host = in /etc/nova/nova.conf.

Is this correct configuration? and I am not sure the setting should be in control node or compute node.

In network node

On my Multi Node IceHouse ML2&OVS&VXLAN system in nova.conf
metadata_host= ( IP of Controller). Create any ssh keypair in Dashboard and assign to instance. You have another problem - access to nova metadata server.

Message should look like checking

@dbaxps nova.conf in all nodes added "metadata_host=(IP of Controller)" ?

It's correct. Does CirrOS VM still complaining at booting up ?

@dbaxps yes, the problem not fixed..

make sure that the nova-api-metadata is stopped in case that you have in nova.conf enabled_apis=..,..,..,metadata. Also what is the OS of the image, try to use prebulit image template. in case that you built it and it is a centos or redhat image. please show us the output of cat /etc/sysconfig/network

yes, I have in nova.conf "enabled_apis=...,metadata" already. I launched cirros and ubuntu 14.04 cloud server, both show same metadata erros.

So stove nova-api-metadata on all nodes if you have it running, please check on all nodes if you have defined the metadata host as the controller on all the computes as well and use the external or public ip of the controller and restart the services. Use the key again in launching the instance

make sure that you have the firewall configured correctly in nova.conf: firewall_driver=nova.virt.firewall.NoopFirewallDriver security_group_api=neutron

Forced to use answer field due to formatting option

Please, verify on network node

$ ip netns exec qrouter-router-id   iptables -t nat -S | grep 169.254
$ ip netns exec qrouter-router-id  netstat -antp
If it will show pid1 of process on 9697
$ ps -ef | grep pid1

Please verify on controller node

$ netstat -lntp | grep 8775
If it will show pid2  of process on 8775
$ ps -ef | grep pid2

Please, add outputs route -n && ip netns exec qrouter-router-id route -n on network node.

As asked by bishoy post entry enabled_apis from nova.conf && check service nova-api-metadata status
