I am able to get a master build of devstack to work (on Ubuntu 16) just fine, using Neutron networking as well.

The problem is it dies after some seemingly random amount of time. Meaning, I cannot ssh into the system, access the dahsboard etc. It's a VM, and I can open the console, and I can even ping/ssh OUT of the box, just not into it.

Anyone ever see this? Yesterday I had it running for a couple hours once. Today the same thing, after I reverted the snapshot and ran trhough the whole again. But then it just becomes unresponsive later....

I tried "screen -r" and restarting various services, nothing works.

Strange...anyone see this behavior before and know how to get around it?


I see from the console that the default route is gone? I tried to add it back, still nothing.

Before it fails:

Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface UG 0 0 0 br-ex U 0 0 0 br-ex U 0 0 0 virbr0

After a while the default route is gone:

Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface U 0 0 0 br-ex U 0 0 0 virbr0

Well, in my situation, I was using some range of IP's in my local.conf that for some reason didn't agree with my network. So I reduced the floating range to just a small portion of my subnet like this and now it's stable for a couple days already:

Enable Neutron


Neutron options
