Should nova-network be installed into the same machine with nova-compute if network-manager is FlatDHCPManager

I tried to use FlatDHCPManager as the network-manager. I succeeded when nova-network was installed into the same machine with nova-compute. But when the nova-network is installed into a different machine, the status of instance I started became running, but I couldn't ping or ssh to the instance from the machine with nova-network. And it wasn't due to security group's setting. I had add rules to the security group.

So I wonder that the nova-network should be installed into the same machine with nova-compute if the network-manager is FlatDHCPManager.

This was true in bexar. Code went in afterwards to setup a single card using flatdhcp: https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/...

There have been a few other flatdhcp bugfixes recently as well. Trunk should work pretty well.

guan is still having a problem: Thank you for your reply.

I tried with flag flat_interface. But I still failed. Now the error was the status of instance was network. After I confirmed connectivity of the network, I found it couldn't be connected between nova-network and nova-compute and I found the only one network interface(other than lo) was used by bridge br100.

Here is my assumption. In order to install with FlatDHCPManager, I need two physical network card in both nova-compute and nova-network if I don't want to use vlan. Could anyone tell me whether it is right or not?

You need to tell it which interface to bridge into by setting the flag --flat_interface
