Am attempting to launch the Windows 2012 R2 eval in a Kilo devstack environment. VM launches, but immediately goes into a "ShutOff" state. No errors in the log or console as far as I can tell. The log seems to be empty. There is enough RAM (4GB), enough disk (40GB). Cannot figure out where the error is.

Here is what horizon reports for the VM: Instance Overview Information

there are sevaral issue you might be having. I would suggest to boot an instance using the same flavor and another image. If that step goes well, you can check the hypervisor logs (/var/log/messages), as this seems an issue with not enough RAM.

Thanks, Adrian Vladu

Ok. after a bunch of poking around, I now have the virtual server booting. I can get it to run with a 1GB RAM allocation.

Thanks. --p
