Hi, I have installed RDO queens via packstack , My VM has single NIC = ens192 ( and it is all-in-one topology (controller and compute on same node).

I used below command for installation:

nohup packstack --allinone --provision-demo=n --os-neutron-ovs-bridge-mappings=extnet:br-ex --os-neutron-ovs-bridge-interfaces=br-ex:ens192 \
--os-neutron-ml2-type-drivers=vxlan,flat,vlan --os-neutron-ml2-flat-networks=extnet --os-heat-install=y --keystone-admin-passwd=password &

Post installation, bridge br-ex is created.

I want to create flat network so that instances created can be accessible from outside and vice versa.

So I made below changes in ml2_conf.ini and openvswitch_agent.ini

file : ml2_conf.ini

type_drivers = local,flat,vlan
flat_networks = physnet1

File : openvswitch_agent.ini

tenant_network_type = local,flat,vlan
network_vlan_ranges = physnet1
enable_tunneling = True
bridge_mappings = physnet1:br-ex
physical_interface_mappings = physnet1:br-ex

I created external network of type flat with subnet allocation pool start :, end:, dhcp_enabled=true (Note : If dhcp_enabled=false, deployed instance does not get IP)

I deployed a instance on this created external n/w , ifconfig command in instance shows the IP but I can not ping this IP from my machine,

This deployed instance can only ping controller node (, it can not ping gateway IP :

I have applied security rules to deployed instance.

Can some one help me what should I do to reach IP from outside ?

Some config values can’t be changed after deploying Neutron. For example, see the warning message in the installation guide.

Try setting the correct parameters in the packstack command.
