How to Fix ‘setkeycodes 00’ and ‘Unknown key pressed’ Console Errors on OpenStack!

Earlier today, I wrote an updated tutorial on using devstack to install OpenStack on a single Ubuntu 16.04 server.  That deployment went so smooth it was no surprise when I ran into a roadblock when trying to console into my first instance.

 

The Problem

 

When accessing the console through the web browser, I wasn’t able to use the keyboard. ¬†Every time I hit any key, these two lines would display in the console:

 

[ 74.003678] atkbd serio0: Use 'setkeycodes 00 <keycode>' to make it known.

[ 74.004462] atkbd serio0: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0x0 on isa0060/serio0).
