Hey everyone, I'm trying to switch from noVNC to Spice in order to see if it will fix the pipe character (|) not entering correctly. I've been trying to setup the Spice console but i'm getting a 404 error saying that nothing matches the URI when I attempt to view the console through horizon. I'm running ubuntu 16.04 on controller and compute, and Queens Openstack. I have nova-spiceproxy installed and the service is running. The queens documentation for Spice is all of a paragraph long and states that nova-spicehtml5proxy service talks directly to the hypervisor; however, I do not have that service on my machine nor can I install it (unable to locate package). Any help towards getting spice to work and/or a workaround or fix to the pipe issue would be great, thanks!

On my controller node:


web = /usr/share/spice-html5


enabled = false


enabled = True

agent_enabled = True html5proxy_base_url = http://controller1m:6082/spice_auto.html

server_listen =

server_proxyclient_address =

keymap = en-us

html5proxy_host =

html5proxy_port = 6082

I really appreciate the information, it will surely help us in our decision moving forward!

Hey everyone, we run a small queens environment at my university that is completely implemented and managed by students. I'm wondering if the upgrade process from one series to another (from Queens to say, Stein) would be simple enough that we could have the students conduct it when they have time, or if it would require a complete reinstall of services and applications on each server (we currently have 5) individually?

Also, what are the main differences between Queens and the currently supported series? I understand that Stein is supported and Queens is only maintained, but is it worth it for a small environment to be completely overhauled every 6 months or can we stick with our current series? (Our environment is not accessible from the web, it is all run internally on our network)
