Hi All,

I am new to openstack and started exploring openstack cinder by installing it on a single VM (virtualbox) following the install steps provided by devstack.

Here are the steps that are performed; created volume -> launch instance -> boot from image

After the above steps, i was able to see the snippet of instance boot (saying login as 'cirros' user. default password: 'cubswin:)'. use 'sudo' for root.).

But the problem is I was not able to view the console as it was showing an error "Failed to connect to server (code: 1006)". I tried to login to the instance from the VM using the IP shown in the console log as;

Check the network in horizon, guess some ports of netowk is down.

Looks like similar with mine:

I have the same problem. I download another image and it works for me. I guess that's the problem of the cirros image. But in any case you need the keypair to ssh
