2013-05-29 03:56:19 -0500 answered a question Authorization Failed: [Errno 111] Connection refused

This might be related to http_proxy being set in the environment. I have faced this a couple of times because of the http_proxy being set, after removing http_proxy from the environment system starts working fine. This happens for an environment where the you have a local network behind proxy and all the request to keystone for validation is sent to the proxy instead which fails, you may also want to add no proxy for localhost.

You should look for adding the security group rules for this. Security group rules addition internally will add the iptables entry for you. You might want to look at this wiki page for more reference -> http://docs.openstack.org/trunk/openstack-network/admin/content/securitygroups.html

2013-05-28 06:31:23 -0500 answered a question How do you install Openstack on a Windows PC

Hey Feders,

If it is just for getting a look and feel of openstack (grizzly), you may use this guide to set it up on ubuntu (12.04) over a virtual-box installed on your Windows Machine.

2013-04-13 14:44:22 -0500 answered a question Why Nova Services appear in XXX state?

You could try the following :

1) check the status of each service whether it is dead or alive by running service <binary> status on the appropriate machines where the services are installed.

a. if it is dead, look at the logs an debug, else post logs here.

2) if the services are running on all the nodes (assuming you have a multinode setup) then sync the time in all the nodes and restart the services.

2013-03-28 05:01:51 -0500 answered a question Why am I getting "Unable to get VNC console" while requesting a vnc console?

I would agree to the above comments that you would need to paste your nova.conf to verify the VNC settings are proper.

Also you mentioned that you are not able to ping your instances provisioned by openstack. First step to debug would be :

1) Go to the host where the instance is provisioned. 2) Install virt-manager if not already installed. 3) Open the VM and check if the allocated ip is actually assigned to your provisioned instance. 4) If not, try to set a static-IP belonging to your network range, try to ping the interface address of the machine where the DHCP Server(dnsmasq) is running for quantum/nova-network and use tcpdump to analyse till where your request is reaching and see if the network is not connected properly somewhere.
