waiting for metadata service at http://169.254.169.254/2009-04-04/meta-data/instance-id
I'm running an instance but I can't ssh or ping it. When I do a euca-get-
[ 0.728227] EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.

1. The instance I'm running is based on the Ubuntu 10.04 server image from http://
2. I've added the metadata service IP address to iptables on the CC with,
sudo iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -d 169.254.169.254/32 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT --to-destination 126.96.36.199:8773
3. Output from iptables-save looks like,
:PREROUTING ACCEPT [413:56592]
:OUTPUT ACCEPT [278:17152]
:POSTROUTING ACCEPT [297:19583]
-A PREROUTING -d 169.254.169.254/32 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT --to-destination 188.8.131.52:8773
4. If I try to ping the metadata service from the CC I get,
user@ubuntu:~$ ping 169.254.169.254
PING 169.254.169.254 (169.254.169.254) 56(84) bytes of data.
From 184.108.40.206 icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable
From 220.127.116.11 icmp_seq=3 Destination Host Unreachable
I don't know where the 18.104.22.168 is coming from.
5. I tried running an instance based on the Ubuntu 10.10 server image from http://
6. I'm running nova on Ubuntu 10.10
Any thoughts as to why the metadata service is inaccessible?
