I notice port 5900 is not opened in iptables on the compute-nodes. should it be opened to accept vnc request?
Comment 4 Sahid Ferdjaoui 2015-09-01 07:17:17 EDT
We need more information of environment to correctly handle your problem but about your question it seems not necessary to open port 5900.

  Please refer yourself to:

    http://docs.openstack.org/kilo/config-reference/content/list-of-compute-config-options.html (vnc section)

  and https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en/red-hat-enterprise-linux-openstack-platform/version-7/red-hat-enterprise-linux-openstack-platform-7-installation-reference/chapter-8-install-the-compute-service
