Hi, We are trying to install tripleo in our lab netwwork with 2 nic: 1) external network( 2) provicioning network(

So we have to enable external network endpoints so for that we use the undercloud.conf given below:

# Config generated by undercloud wizard
# Use these values in undercloud.conf
undercloud_hostname = myhost.mydomain
local_interface = em1
local_mtu = 1500
network_cidr =
masquerade_network =
local_ip =
network_gateway =
undercloud_public_host =
undercloud_admin_host =
undercloud_service_certificate =
generate_service_certificate = False
scheduler_max_attempts = 10
dhcp_start =
dhcp_end =
inspection_iprange =,
# Deprecated names for compatibility with older releases
discovery_iprange =,
undercloud_public_vip =
undercloud_admin_vip =

We set undercloud_public_vip ,undercloud_admin_vip ,undercloud_public_host ,undercloud_admin_host to external network. But the openstack endpoint list only shows endpoint in 192.168.0/24 subnet.

Is there any other configuration that we need to do..please help.

Also whats the use of floating ip in overcloud nodes??

Thanks in advance

You need to have SSL/TLS configured in order to use public endpoint on the undercloud. Change generate_service_certificate = True and then do openstack undercloud upgrade. If unable to upgrade, re-install the undercloud.

In short, the floating IP provides a 1-to-1 NAT on neutron router for the applied VM, so that external connections (e.g. from Internet) can reach the VM via a floating IP (which is a publicly routable one). It is the same as the "Elastic IP" in AWS.
