Subject [jira] [Commented] (DTACLOUD-205) "Permission denied" when ssh'ing to an Openstack instance - launched through Deltacloud (no way to pass a keypair in the current API)
Date Fri, 29 Jun 2012 16:04:44 GMT


Marios Andreou commented on DTACLOUD-205:

final note on the user data - after further investigation and help from hp support (
- file injection is supported but it seems not for all images. In particular I couldn't get
file injection working for image #14075.

Images 417 and 223 were both successful. The path specified for the file *must* be under /etc
- e.g. /etc/my_file_1 ... for instance I couldn't put a file in /tmp. Don't know if other
locations are valid. We should document this for deltacloud - or even 'hard code' it - so
any files specified by user are auto-placed into /etc... not sure yet.

> I receive a "permission denied" error when ssh'ing into an instance launched through
Deltacloud to my Openstack account : "Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic)."
I used the public ip address to ssh to the instance.
> When the instance was in a pending state, there was a password visible. Once the instance
went to a RUNNING state, the password disappeared. Is it possible to pass a key pair?
> Answer from Marios: 
> In the HP implementation,  by default, password authentication seems to be disabled and
you have to use a keypair. HOWEVER, the openstack API doesn't provide a way for passing 'key_pair'
parameter into an instance during creation. Referencing API doc:  (no mention of key_pair
parameter under server creation at
). Digging a little deeper I noticed this
and one of the examples shows a 'key_pair' parameter passed in.
> This is another jira issue - not because of something we can fix directly  in the deltacloud
code - but rather try and get this functionality into the oOpenstack gem (i.e. accept key_pair
parameter and pass onto provider, and also key_pair management)
