I'm running some instances using Ubuntu image 10.04 on Openstack. Here is the link:

I can use the private key to ssh to these instances, it's ok. But I don't know the default password to VNC to these instance. So what is it?

All the passwords have been disabled on UEC images. For VNC, you will probably need to explicitly set one using vncpasswd.

Thanks Tim. There is no password for 'root' or 'ubuntu' user in UEC image. So I just use the private key and ssh to UEC instance, then create a new user/password. After that I can login in VNC console to that instance.
