i have a problem with fuel 7 - i installed a controller and 3 kvm's for a small test-environment. after installation (fuel says "successfully deployed") i cannot reach the vip's of f.e. horizon or auth-url. but i can reach the controllers ip's without a problem. all the services are up and running. i can access horzion through the management network, but not through the public one.

so the problem is, as the vip's are not available, i can't do anything on kvm (f.e. create an instance), as the kvm host is not able to reach the vip's and their services like glance, authentication, etc. etc. - > Unable to establish connection to http://192.168.x.x:5000/v2.0/tokens

does some having the same problem while installing openstack throuth fuel ? does anyone know this / a solution for this problem ?

i really appreciate your help ! thanks in advance, chris

Make sure, your keystone service is up and running. initctl list | grep keystone & netstat -ntlp | grep 35357

hi bipin,

when i run both commands on the controller (not the kvm-host) i get this:

initctl list | grep keystone
keystone start/running, process 31334
netstat -ntlp | grep 35357
tcp6 0 0 :::35357 :::* LISTEN 7238/apache2
netstat -ntlp | grep 5000
tcp6 0 0 :::5000 :::* LISTEN 7238/apache2
-> has tcp6 something to say ? should it be tcp4 ?

when i run this one on the KVM-HOST: glance image-list
Unable to establish connection to

but when i run the same thing on the CONTROLLER: glance image-list
| ID | Name | Disk Format | Container Format | Size | Status |
| e132215f-4164-4ea4-8c1e-d654541975ef | w2k8r2-cbinit | qcow2 | bare | 7458324480 | active |

so it seams that all the services on the controller are up and running.

what i saw is that f.e. i can "telnet <controller-vip> 80" on the CONTROLLER, but i CAN NOT "telnet <controller-ip> 80" on the KVM-HOST when i use the haproxy VIP. looks like all the VIPs are not accessable from outside the controller. when i change the .conf and environment variable for auth-url from the vip to the controllers ip it works ...

are there any other services that have to be in running-state on the controller ?:

initctl list | grep stop
