I have setup OpenStack cloud on ubuntu 14.04 with Mitaka Release. I am trying to change console from vnc to spice but instances are unable to access spice console. Only guide i could find for changing to spice was for Kilo release on CentOS. Following is the link i followed:

At the end of this guide, when it says to restart services, one command is

systemctl enable openstack-nova-spicehtml5proxy

systemctl is unavailable in ubuntu 14.04, so instead of this command i used

sudo update-rc.d nova-spiceproxy enable

Instances are unable to access spice console through dashboard. unable to reach to server appears.

when i try the command:

openstack console url show d6da43ca-f983-40cb-bab7-dd39d773930f --spice

it gives following error:

Invalid input for field/attribute type. Value: spice. u'spice' is not one of ['spice-html5'] (HTTP 400) (Request-ID: req-fba236e4-e281-401e-8375-ec4d9ab9f6cf)

Can anyone help me to figure out the issue??

Ignore F22 and Kilo specific patching
Should work for RDO Mitaka
Patching per might require additional efforts in most recent RDO releases.
I would avoid set up Spice Console on Ubuntu.

According to this article, most users opt ubuntu for deployment of openstack
