Re-installed (mysql, keystone, horizon...) problem went away.

Followed Install and Deploy manual (Folsom trunk Oct 10, 2012), and keep getting 'connectionrefused erno 111' on debug output when attempting to login to Horison Dashboard with admin user. Apache error log says:

Have verified keystone endpoints exist and are correct (looked in dbase). can login to mysql with keystone user/pass. created new user in keystone with admin role, same result. verified nova-api and keystone services running.

Any other troublshooting ideas would be appreciated.

This problem has been resolved. When launched Horizon going to var/www/dashboard, and should be going to to /usr/share/openstack-dashboard/openstack_dashboard/wsgi, created symlink and started working.

Anton- Thanks for your quick response. I tried appending /horizon (and horizon/auth/login) - while it didnt work I did get a different message - internal server error. I verified that my settings in apache2/conf.d do match yours. My problem must be somewhere else. I have attached my for reference. Keystone, horizon, mysql, nova-api, nova-scheduler, rabbitmq all run on my cloud controller node (x.x.x.71 below); nova-compute, quantum and l2/dhcp/l3 agents run on seperate nodes. I used the IP of cloud controller node (.71) in defining all endpoints - not sure if that is correct.

Set SSL proxy settings:

For Django 1.4+ pass this header from the proxy after terminating the SSL,

and don't forget to strip it from the client's request.

SESSION_ENGINE = 'django.core.cache.backends.db.DatabaseCache' DATABASES = { 'default': { # Database configuration here 'ENGINE': 'django.db.backends.mysql', 'NAME': 'dash', 'USER': 'dash', 'PASSWORD': 'dash', 'HOST': 'localhost', 'default-character-set': 'utf8' } } #

Set custom secret key:

You can either set it to a specific value or you can let horizion generate a

default secret key that is unique on this machine, e.i. regardless of the

amount of Python WSGI workers (if used behind Apache+mod_wsgi): However, there

may be situations where you would want to set this explicitly, e.g. when

multiple dashboard instances are distributed on different machines (usually

behind a load-balancer). Either you have to make sure that a session gets all

requests routed to the same dashboard instance or you set the same SECRET_KEY

for all of them.

from horizon.utils import secret_key

SECRET_KEY = secret_key.generate_or_read_from_file(os.path.join(LOCAL_PATH, '.secret_key_store'))

We recommend you use memcached for development; otherwise after every reload

of the django development server, you will have to login again. To use

memcached set CACHE_BACKED to something like 'memcached://'

note see pg 79/80 for how this is done differently - declare session engine

CACHE_BACKEND = 'memcached://'

Send email to the console by default

EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django.core.mail.backends.console.EmailBackend'

Or send them to /dev/null

#EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django.core.mail.backends.dummy.EmailBackend'

Configure these for your outgoing email host



EMAIL_HOST_USER = 'djangomail'

EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD = 'top-secret!'

For multiple regions uncomment this configuration, and add (endpoint, title).

New to OpenStack, first install (Folsom) with seperate nodes for cloud controller and compute; keystone and dashboard both installed on cloud controller node. After following instructions from install/deploy manual for ubuntu (trunk 10/10/2012), and trying to validate, only the default web page for apache comes up ('it works') - no login for dashboard. Does the config file require database entry/config ( - have seen mixed information on this. Could there be endpoint definition problem (used cloud controller node IP for all service catalog endpoints).
