switching from vnc to spice

hi there

I would like to switch about nova from vnc to spice protocol to get remote access for my tenant's. But I don't have success to do it.

[DEFAULT]
.......
web = /usr/share/spice-html5
vnc_enabled = False
novnc_enabled = False
.......
[spice]
agent_enabled = True
enabled = True
html5proxy_base_url = http://openstack.webterrorist.local:6082/spice_auto.html
html5proxy_host = 0.0.0.0
html5proxy_port = 6082
keymap = en-us
server_listen = 192.168.253.10
server_proxyclient_address = 192.168.253.10
.......
[vnc]
enabled = False
vncserver_listen = 0.0.0.0
agent_enabled = False
vncserver_proxyclient_address = 192.168.253.10
novncproxy_base_url = http://openstack.webterrorist.local:6080/vnc_auto.html
.......

But by testing it I get only these result

dhojnik@sackjeseech:~$ openstack console url show 580a7e3c-f207-4b55-93d6-a0087200a998 --spice
Unavailable console type spice. (HTTP 400) (Request-ID: req-ce378836-6c80-4fcb-8ede-67b9eb9f4f4b)

The current behavior is for new and also existing VM's. Nova-Services has been restarted at all on every node. I am using Ubuntu 16.04. OpenStack Ocata with XEN 4.6 on my compute nodes. Is there something else what I could do?
