[Spice] Grey screen when opening the console

Hey,

Today i tried setting up a spice console instead of using Novnc in CentOS 7 (Openstack Juno). This all went pretty good until i tried opening the console on a newly spawned instance. It just shows the Spice console with a Grey box in the middle where the instance should be displaying its output. (LINK)

I read about this problem on a Redhat forum and it says that it is the error it gives when it couldn't connect. (LINK) The forum didn't give any solution that would work for me.

I am out of options and i don't know how to fix this.

Controller /etc/nova/nova.conf

# Location of spice HTML5 console proxy, in the form
# "http://127.0.0.1:6082/spice_auto.html" (string value)
html5proxy_base_url=http://10.63.0.11:6082/spice_auto.html

# IP address on which instance spice server should listen
# (string value)
#server_listen=0.0.0.0

# The address to which proxy clients (like nova-
# spicehtml5proxy) should connect (string value)
#server_proxyclient_address=10.63.0.11

# Enable spice related features (boolean value)
enabled=True

# Enable spice guest agent support (boolean value)
agent_enabled=true

# Keymap for spice (string value)
keymap=en-us

Compute /etc/nova/nova.conf

# Location of spice HTML5 console proxy, in the form
# "http://127.0.0.1:6082/spice_auto.html" (string value)
html5proxy_base_url=http://10.63.0.11:6082/spice_auto.html

# IP address on which instance spice server should listen
# (string value)
server_listen=0.0.0.0

# The address to which proxy clients (like nova-
# spicehtml5proxy) should connect (string value)
server_proxyclient_address=10.63.0.101

# Enable spice related features (boolean value)
enabled=true

# Enable spice guest agent support (boolean value)
agent_enabled=true

# Keymap for spice (string value)
keymap=en-us

Thanks, Ruben.

See http://bderzhavets.blogspot.com/2015/...
Skip all part specific to F22 and proceed from ( pre-enabling EPEL 7 . It won't hurt) :-

# yum  -y install spice-html5 ( installed on Controller && Compute)
# yum  -y install  openstack-nova-spicehtml5proxy (Compute Node)

I didn't test switching to Spice Console on RDO Juno , but on RDO Kilo && CentOS 7.1 it is working fine,
along with sound activation for VMs running in the Cloud and been connected via spice-gtk tools.
You might need rebuild corresponding src.rpm for openstack-nova-spicehtml5proxy
if second install won't find package. Manual been suggested passed moderation by "Experts Exchange" :

Hey,

I'm not running a RDO stack. I installed all the components i need by hand. I installed the spice packages needed on the compute and controller but it didn't help.
