Hi all:

I just installed the DecStack on my local machine. After I started the instance from the default CirrOs images, I can login the console on both Dashboard and through SSH.

However, I created another instance from the cloud image of Ubuntu (here). I cannot see and login the console on dashboard and SSH to the instance. I also cannot Ping the assigned IP address of the ubuntu.

The security group are the same. Here it is: ALLOW -1:-1 from this is for ICMP ALLOW 22:22 from this is for SSH

Thank you very much for your help.

Also, after I created the image of CentOS 7 and created an instance of it. I can ssh and ping the CentOs 7 instance without any problem.

The default ubuntu cloud image does not allow SSH Authentication using passwords. You will need to import or configure SSH keypair to be able to login via Openstack Horizon.
