We are installing OpenStack Kilo version on an AWS instances as a part of Prototype.

While creating Self Service network, when we link the Bridge br-ex to Eth2 port, the eth2 port loses its connectivity. Is there any restriction from AWS side to use NIC bridging/mapping in EC2 instances?

Has anyone successfully installed OpenStack on AWS instances? If so are there any additional installation or configuration steps required

Appreciate the help!

EDIT-01: Connectivity issue after Bridge mapping between br-ex and eth2 is fixed by assigning eth2's MAC address to br-ex. However, the connectivity between br-ex and br-int still exist. Whenever I create new floating IPs mapped with newly created VMs, It is not reflecting in br-ex interface. eventually, I can't reach gateway/internet from the router's ip netns commands.
