I followed following doc for Openstack folsom installation: (

Everything worked successfully till last step where you need to associate floating IP. However when I try to associate floating IP I get following error:

root@control:/home/control# quantum floatingip-associate 1efdde72-7438-45d0-b495-2ee3352a7f58 fff4169b-191e-4b4c-9e6d-114a557986b1

Bad floatingip request: Port fff4169b-191e-4b4c-9e6d-114a557986b1 is associated with a different tenant than Floating IP 1efdde72-7438-45d0-b495-2ee3352a7f58 and therefore cannot be bound.

I tried following steps to resolve this issue:

  1. Tried above command with "admin" "adminusername" "adminpassword"

  2. Tried above command with "projectone" "projectoneusername" "projectone_password" (--os-tenant-name proj_one)

Also whenever I try to start an instance I get the following error in instance logs:

===== cloud-final: system completely up in 53.89 seconds ==== wget: can't connect to remote host ( Network is unreachable wget: can't connect to remote host ( Network is unreachable wget: can't connect to remote host ( Network is unreachable

Can anyone please help me out?

Can you show details of the port fff4169b-191e-4b4c-9e6d-114a557986b1, the floating ip 1efdde72-7438-45d0-b495-2ee3352a7f58 and the external network?

I think there could be two reasons: 1) floating ip belongs to admin tenant and you are trying to associate it with user tenant 2) floating ip is created on the external network which is not shared.
