I have an active/active juno setup working except for an annoying little thing. The two central servers site behind HA proxy and this includes the nova-novncproxy on port 6080. The console works for vms on compute nodes but you need to go to fullscreen or reload the page to see it in the Horizon web interface as it will randomly give a code 1006.

Was wondering if anyone had exeperience with round robing vnc proxy nodes?

To give you an example when I first pull up the page I get: (Bad)

But when I go fullscreen or randomly in the horizon interface I get: (image description)

Thanks for looking.

You will need to use memcached in your nova.conf for the console-auth servers.

Simply set memcached_servers= in the [DEFAULT] section of your nova.conf and restart the console-auth services and you should be good.

It is an undocumented dependancy of multiple active console-auths. I'll submit a patch to the ha-guide section in the docs.


memcached_servers = controller01:11211, controller02:11211
