Hi there!

I am new to the cloud stuff and interested to learn about it. I am trying to install openstack on dedicated node remotely. Installtion completes successfully but the issue is the Access IP for it uses the localhost IP.

 **** Installation completed successfully ******

Additional information:

 * Warning: NetworkManager is active on OpenStack networking currentl                                                                             y does not work on systems that have the Network Manager service enabled.
 * File /root/keystonerc_admin has been created on OpenStack client host 127.0.0                                                                             .1. To use the command line tools you need to source the file.
 * To access the OpenStack Dashboard browse to .
Please, find your login credentials stored in the keystonerc_admin in your home                                                                              directory.

 * Because of the kernel update the host requires reboot.
 * The installation log file is available at: /var/tmp/packstack/20160417-185554                                                                             -3qmQJW/openstack-setup.log
 * The generated manifests are available at: /var/tmp/packstack/20160417-185554-                                                                             3qmQJW/manifests

How can I change that localhost IP to some public dedicated IP of the server? So, I can access the dashboard and other stuff?

There is a workaround for this which I use often when doing testing with Packstack, although it's not a permanent solution:

ssh -L localhost:8080:localhost:8080

Where is the address of the dedicated node where you have Horizon running. Once you have established this SSH connection, you can then connect to http://localhost:8080 and you should be able to bring up Horizon (assuming that Horizon is running on

I'm researching a permanent fix, and will update if I find a good solution.

For the dashboard, you typically change


I have mine listening / serving on

<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName stack

  ## Vhost docroot
  DocumentRoot "/var/www/"
  ## Alias declarations for resources outside the DocumentRoot
  Alias /dashboard/static "/usr/share/openstack-dashboard/static"

  ## Directories, there should at least be a declaration for /var/www/

  <Directory "/var/www/">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
    AllowOverride None
    Require all granted

  ## Logging
  ErrorLog "/var/log/httpd/horizon_error.log"
  ServerSignature Off
  CustomLog "/var/log/httpd/horizon_access.log" combined

  ## RedirectMatch rules
  RedirectMatch permanent  ^/$ /dashboard

  # Server aliases
  ServerAlias stack
  ServerAlias localhost
  WSGIDaemonProcess dashboard group=apache processes=3 threads=10 user=apache
  WSGIProcessGroup dashboard
  WSGIScriptAlias /dashboard "/usr/share/openstack-dashboard/openstack_dashboard/wsgi/django.wsgi"

I was able to solve that through the answer file during installation. And it works fine for now. But the only issues I face now is none of the instances are able to connect external network, even unable to ping any other outside IPs.

If anyone can help me with it, that will be great.
