Bridge interfaces not created on lxc hosts - openstack ansible

Running Openstack-ansible on Ubuntu 18.04 hosts with Openstack Train, containers are created but each of the three hosts fail to have br-mgmt configured on it. I can create br-mgmt manually and containers will then get IP addresses and start but root problem is that the hosts don't get br-mgmt and br-vxlan bridge interfaces as part of the setup-hosts.yml process.

Hosts to get lxcbr0 interfaces but not br-mgmt or any other bridges after that.

Here is the openstack_user_config.yml file first part:

global_overrides: internal_lb_vip_address: external_lb_vip_address: management_bridge: "br-mgmt" tunnel_bridge: "br-vxlan" provider_networks: - network: group_binds: - all_containers - hosts type: "raw" container_bridge: "br-mgmt" container_interface: "eth1" container_type: "veth" ip_from_q: "container" is_container_address: true - network: group_binds: - glance_api - cinder_api - cinder_volume - nova_compute type: "raw" container_bridge: "br-storage" container_type: "veth" container_interface: "eth2" container_mtu: "9000" ip_from_q: "storage" - network: group_binds: - neutron_linuxbridge_agent container_bridge: "br-vxlan" container_type: "veth" container_interface: "eth10" container_mtu: "9000" ip_from_q: "tunnel" type: "vxlan" range: "1:1000" net_name: "vxlan"

I am tracing the openstack ansible process to determine why br-mgmt wouldn't be created. Where is best place to look? Does anybody have ideas as to something I am doing wrong on the config file so that br-mgmt shouldn't be created?

Thank you for assistance and any direction in advance.

Turns out only lxcbr0 is created by OSA. All other bridges have to be created manually unless you create playbook and/or tasks to do this. Out of the box the bridges have to be configured on each target host prior to running the setup-hosts playbook.

Did this in netplan and all containters are up and running. The info was quite clear in the deployment guide, I just missed it.

In case it helps anyone, netplan configuration on the target hosts that was used is found below.

"""network: version: 2 ethernets: eno4: addresses: [] dhcp4: false gateway4: nameservers: addresses: - - search: - ens2f0: {} vlans: vlan.302: id: 302 link: ens2f0 vlan.401: id: 401 link: ens2f0 vlan.402: id: 402 link: ens2f0 vlan.403: id: 403 link: ens2f0 bridges: br-mgmt: interfaces: [vlan.401] addresses: [] mtu: 1500 br-tunnel: interfaces: [vlan.402] addresses: [] mtu: 1500 br-storage: interfaces: [vlan.403] addresses: [] br-flat: interfaces: [vlan.302] addresses: []"""
