Edit /etc/openstack-dashboard/ and change following entry
OPENSTACK_HOST = <KeyStoneHostName>

Also Pre-requisites were not installed as given in the documentation. After installing Compute and configuring different end points it started working fine.

I edited according to your post, but I didn't get again... Could you tell is there any service has to be created in keystone setup? My edited /etc/openstack-dashboard/ file looks like OPENSTACK_HOST = "openstackvm00"

Did you create the appropriate end points at Keystone ? What is the problem you are facing ? What is the output of 'keystone endpoint-list' Hope you keystone host is IP resolvable.

Now What are your problems? Can your horizon connect with keystone? You can check if keystone has already started. You need to change these configures in local_settings: OPENSTACK_HOST = OPENSTACK_KEYSTONE_URL = OPENSTACK_KEYSTONE_DEFAULT_ROLE = "admin" OPENSTACK_KEYSTONE_BACKEND = {'name':'native','can_edit_user':True}

If you install horizon on centos,the config file name is local_settings,on ubuntu it is

Could you tell me what are the values for OPENSTACK_HOST, OPENSTACK_KEYSTONE_URL. I kept remaining values same as what you have given. How can I connect horizon with keystone? Could you tell me the command to connect?

OPENSTACK_HOST is the ipaddress of keystone OPENSTACK_KEYSTONE_URL = "http://%s:5000/v2.0" % OPENSTACK_HOST
