According to the documentation novncproxy needs the consoleauth service and I found various pages on the web describing the installation of the openstack-nova-consoleauth rpm yet this doesn't seem to be available in the RDO repo.

Ah, I wasn't paying attention to that package because the documentation 
describes nova-console as XenAPI specific and not to be confused with 
the separate nova-consoleauth. Thanks for the pointer.

I now get the "shell" in the console tab but the vnc console itself 
doesn't work. What I found in the debug log is this:

2013-06-06 13:32:55.122 DEBUG nova.openstack.common.rpc.amqp 
[req-fba2d928-0c8b-4584-815a-17779cd96e2e None None] Making synchronous 
call on conductor ... multicall 

This call then times out after a while.

The issue is that I disabled the conductor in nova.conf:

I followed this page: 

So I'm not sure why vnc still tries to contact the conductor. Is the 
conductor service now a hard requirement for novncproxy?
