I've opened this (post) to resolve the problem of the Ping and Ssh connection to my instance. During same checks I've seen this issue:

error: "could not add network device eno2 to ofproto (Device or resource busy)"

Maybe that is the cause of my first issue, but I don't understand how I can fix it and having a working lab.

Run the following command:

Is there any interface already attached to eno2 ?

As showed above it seems to be a bridge interface, in the lab isn't present any device with the same IP addr. I'll try again to deploy that and I'll see if that is still present.

Update 22/03/19:

is it possible that the error on the eno2 is done of that?: (image)

both the interface, on compute node (BMC and Interface), use the same network... Any suggestions please. I am still unable to solve the problem. Thanks.

Update 26/03/19:

On Juju gui I've that:

    bridge-mappings:         physnet1:br-ex
    data-port:               br-ex:eno2
    flat-network-providers:  physnet1

Before to run the deploy via juju of Openstack I've changed data-port from br-ex:eno2 to br-ex:eno3

    bridge-mappings:         physnet1:br-ex
    data-port:               br-ex:eno3

from error , it appears that there is some other resource using up eno2 , can you try to use any other ethernet interface apart from eno2 .... on juju config param ext-port

@Mohit: I've upgraded the post with the results about that.
