Using the command: "openstack loadbalancer create --project service --name lb1 --vip-subnet-id selfservice"

Would allocate the VIP address and ports from the "selfservice" subnet in neutron for the project "service". Since you did not ask for a specific IP address when creating the VIP, neutron allocates an IP address for us and provides it either on the port configuration or via DHCP.

If you got an IP address that is not on the neutron subnet "selfservice", please check your neutron configuration and logs to see why it issued Octavia such an address for the VIP port.

Also note, the VIP port should be visible in a port list to the project "service" you specified at load balancer creation time.
