I have an instance of the ubuntu image: precise-server-cloudimg-amd64-disk1.img. I can boot/launch the image from Nova. [Below is the image details] However, I am not able to log into the box with the following command:

ssh -i wso2.pem ubuntu@10.10.13.177

I get the error:

"Permission denied (publickey)."

My thought is that there is something wrong with OpenStack registering the key with the image. Where would I look to confirm that this is the case? Also, how would I solve this issue? The wso.pem key was generated from the ssh add pair command and contains the RSA private key.

  • Try the verbose mode ssh -i wso2.pem -vvv ubuntu@10.10.13.177 this would give you more information about whats going on – APZ May 21 '13 at 1:05
  • That was the issue... permission issue on the key. Please make this an answer and I'll give you credit. – monksy May 21 '13 at 1:12
