Could you share a solution to get around this issue?

2015-03-06 19:06:11 -0500 answered a question Ceilometer-api critical error OpenStack-IceHouse Ubuntu 14.04

Any solution for solving this issue. I just installed ceilometer service and see the same issue in my ceilometer-api.log. Does anyone find a way to get around it? Thanks.

2015-02-02 19:13:14 -0500 commented question The web browser in Win 7 virtual machine not working

I found I can ping from inside of the Win 7 instance to outside web site, but I can not ping the floating IP associated to this instance from outside internet. This only happens to the Win 7 image. The instance with the Ubuntu server or Ubuntu desktop images is OK.

2015-02-02 16:38:55 -0500 asked a question The web browser in Win 7 virtual machine not working

With an image created from the following link steps:

http://docs.openstack.org/image-guide...

My Win 7 image can be loaded by glance and launched with an instance. It boots OK, but the IE/Chrome browser can not get any web pages to appear, except bing web. They are all pinned OK from command line. With Ubuntu desktop image, the browser shows other webs fine. Does anyone experience the this issue with Windows image?

With an image created as the above link steps, the Win 7 image can be loaded by glance and launched with an instance. It boots OK, but the IE/Chrome browser can not get any web pages to appear, except bing web. They are all pinned OK. With Ubuntu desktop, the browser shows other webs fine. Any hint?

2015-01-27 17:25:53 -0500 commented answer Is there other way to access Openstack virtual machines for remote guests without OpenStack dashboard instance console?

Thanks, Gabriel, for the response. But, this will require the guest user to know which compute host and its IP. We want to hide that from the user. It's better to provide guest users an associated floating IP to access VM. I can do that for Ubuntu server image, but not for Ubuntu desktop image.

Thanks, Jacob, for the response. I do use nova VNC url fine, but I am wondering if there is any other way can access the virtual machines with the associated floating IP, like Windows Remote Desktop Connection or VNC viewer to view Ubuntu desktop screen.

2015-01-26 12:40:47 -0500 asked a question Is there other way to access Openstack virtual machines for remote guests without OpenStack dashboard instance console?

I am thinking my remote guest user don't need to know Openstack. They can access the virtual machines I launched from dashboard by a public app or link each time they want to use the same virtual machine. Is this possible for the virtual machines created by Openstack? Is it possible to use VNC Viewer app or Windows Remote Desktop Connection to access the virtual machines through the associated floating IP? Because I am using the desktop version images, like Ubuntu desktop 12.04 and Windows 7, it requires a window to view the GUI. Thank you in advance to share the different ways to access the virtual machines remotely.

2015-01-19 19:57:57 -0500 commented answer Initial boot from Ubuntu ISO, reboot from ephemeral disk

Launch instances by dashboard "boot from image (creates a new volume)" with Ubuntu 12.04 desktop ISO and volume 40GB. During installation, it always pops up a failure to create a swap space message: "The creation of swap space in partition #5 of Virtual disk 1 (vda) failed" and stops. Any ideas?

Installing Ubuntu ISO by a VM for another VM to boot up seems to work for one VM. How about every additional VMs? Can we clone that cinder volume to use for the later created VMs? For the ephemeral disk installation, to restart by power icon is still back to the install screen. Appreciate the ideas.

2015-01-12 20:03:39 -0500 asked a question Initial boot from Ubuntu ISO, reboot from ephemeral disk

I am using Openstack Icehouse. I am able to install ISO when the VM is launched, but to reboot after the installation, the VM doesn't boot from disk instead from CDROM again and become always in the installation screen after reboot.

It installs ISO CDROM installation but afterwards it needs to boot from disk. I tried the KVM virtual machine manager and saw it can install ISO from cdrom and boot from HD fine.

Can anyone share a successful experience with ISO installation in icehouse with ephemeral disk?

What additional work we need to do to get it to work if openstack release can not handle ISO installation?

Thanks,

2014-11-19 22:11:55 -0500 answered a question install openvswitch-datapath-dkms error: Linux kernel version newer than 3.12.x is not supported

I just saw the note: Ubuntu installations using Linux kernel version 3.11 or newer do not require the openvswitch-datapath-dkms package. I then removed the openvswitch-datapath-dkms package.

2014-11-19 22:11:54 -0500 asked a question install openvswitch-datapath-dkms error: Linux kernel version newer than 3.12.x is not supported

With apt-get install openvswitch-datapath-dkms in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, I got "Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.13.0-32-generic (x86_64)".

In the /var/lib/dkms/openvswitch/2.0.2/build/make.log: KMS make.log for openvswitch-2.0.2 for kernel 3.13.0-32-generic (x86_64) checking for Linux source directory... /lib/modules/3.13.0-32-generic/build checking for kernel version... 3.13.11 configure: error: Linux kernel in /lib/modules/3.13.0-32-generic/build is version 3.13.11, but version newer than 3.12.x is not supported

The installation of openvswitch-datapath-dkms shows not supporting kernel after 3.12.x. But, the ICEHOUSE is supposed to support Ubuntu 14.04 which has linux kernel 3.13 How is this issue solved?
