Multi-node setup with floating ip and public gateway

asked 2019-07-09 16:05:37 -0600

Hi all,

Thank you all for your guidance and support.

So, I have a floating ip pool and a public gateway given to me. The ip pool is and the gateway router is at I further have two nodes. I want the first node to be the controller but also offer compute services and the second node to only have compute. I want to be able to ssh/ping any vms that I launch once openstack is deployed and I want the vms to get a floating ip from the emboldened pool above. I just have a CS degree and I am deeply frurstrated trying to get this to work. Would appreciate any guidance. I have attached my local.conf. That is the only file I modified. I am also attaching my ifconfig out for your look over. I really want the absolute bare basic setup for testing purposes.

I have been referring to these two links:

Here is the link to my local.conf: (

Here is a link to my current ifconfig after ./ (

Thank you Thank you Thank you

You say you are frustrated, so I guess something doesn’t work. However you don’t say what.

You seem to have Docker installed on that server. This makes me wonder if you deployed Devstack on a freshly installed system. If you didn’t, you risk incompatibilities and ultimately failure.

I have a fresh system with no docker now, what can I do now?

Follow the instructions on the pages you are referencing: Set up a non-root user (preferrably named stack), set up the IP address, clone Devstack, write local.conf, run I think you should add the second node when the first is done.

any notes on my local.conf?

I am not good at interpreting local.conf. Did you try installing it? Are there any problems?
