I just made a small change to my configuration. what i did was deleted all the keystone endpoints and added them in again just a diffrent public url. what happend was everything was working expect I was getting the below error on the controller node in the server-log:

2014-01-08 18:38:47.491 1430 DEBUG routes.middleware [-] Match dict: {'action': u'index', 'controller': <wsgify at 46817488 wrapping <function resource at 0x2ca0320>>, 'format': u'json'} __call__ /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/routes/

And in the openvswitch-agent.log on the controller node:

2014-01-08 18:40:24.666 19977 ERROR neutron.plugins.openvswitch.agent.ovs_neutron_agent [-] Tunneling cannot be enabled without a valid local_ip. Agent terminated!

I changed the endpoint back to what it was but still the same error.

any idea? help is really appreciated as these logs are more than 3 times / sec.

Do you have a valid "local_ip" setting in your neutron configuration?

Yes, the compute nodes and the network node all have. it is very strange what is happening here

Is there any update about this issue? I'm facing the same problem on a virtualized RDO Foreman installation. @mili: could you solve your problem?

Yes, after add the local ip in /etc/neutron/plugins/openvswitch/ovs_neutron_plugin.ini, it works!

I think I found the solution, openvswitch was not running, you can make it happy with:

[root@controller ~]# /etc/init.d/openvswitch start

The Local IP needs to be setup in : /etc/neutron/plugins/openvswitch/ovs_neutron_plugin.ini

Did you change the IP addressing on the node? If so, maybe it doesn't match the ovs_neutron_plugin now.
