Hi, I have installed Openstack Mitaka in ubuntu with openvswitch and configured Hyperv compute note to it and the setup works fine with openvswitch-hyperv-installer-beta. Thanks for this :)

Also i installed FreeRDP Webconnect. and configured the Hyperv compute node nova.conf for it.

But the console never gets shown. Its gives error like

The Instance seems to be not working. Try to enter the console again

But the instance is working fine.

The nova-consoleauth log has some warnings regarding memcached. But the memcached is running good on controller. Logs are

Hello Muthu, did you install FreeRDP-WebConnect on the compute-node?(if yes, the host can be localhost, but it's not indicated). I suppose there is a problem with your openstack controller, as it should return you the proper compute-node ip. Could you enter inside Event Viewer inside the compute-node, under Application, search for source: wsgate and you should have a list of Information level entries. There are some specific ones to look for:

RDP Port:              '2179'
RDP User:              'your admin'
RDP Pcb:               '4F325E7A-7909-4537-8A5D-D85F150B6890'
RDP Host:              'some ip'

Also if there are any errors, paste those too.

Those should coincide with the info related to the particular VM you're trying to view. Also, can you show the wsgate.ini file(remove the admin password) inside

C:\Program Files\Cloudbase Solutions\FreeRDP-WebConnect\etc\wsgate.ini

Thanks for the quick reply :) Yes, i have installed FreeRDP WebConnect on Hyperv Compute node itself. I checked the EventViewer Application logs. wsgate has logs without any above information of RDP. EventViewer logs wsgate.ini

Even viewer logs has to be read from bottom. Sorry comment characters are consistent.

Thanks for the information Muthu, it seems that FreeRDP is not able to gather the information from Openstack. Your setup seems to be correct. Can you please test if the Keystone API v2.0 is working?

c64cosmin gravatar imagec64cosmin ( 2016-07-25 16:10:29 +0300 )edit

I'am afraid NO. Command "openstack endpoint list" provides only v3 endpoints. As seen here . Also keystone api vertification process of v2.0 produces error as "Could not determine suitable URL for the plugin". I think in Mitaka release identity v2.0 is deprecated.

Unfortunately FreeRDP doesn't support v3. I will take care of it and I will inform you as soon as it's implemented.
