How to use the l3-agent of the folsom?

asked 2012-09-03 10:51:03 -0500

where has a help doc? I install a openstack-f3 from src in Centos6.3. Now use quantum as a network service. The instance can obtain a private ip from quantum-dhcp. But I can't ping it from the server host. And the instance can't also ping to outside. I know the l3-agent can solve this problem. Is it? Thanks!

HI dan

Thank you for your answer. I install the openstack folsom3 from source packet rather than devstack. Does the source packet include a l3-agent function? The l3-agent is a service?

l3-agent support has not yet fully merged into devstack. I expect the review to complete in 2-3 days.

One reason this has taken so long is that we recently changed how L3 is configured from the CLI, so the devstack code had to keep changing as well.

Hi Yang,

The l3-agent is just like the dhcp-agent. Perhaps this ( ) the patch that configures the l3-agent for devstack will help shed some light (since this isn't officially documented anywhere as far as I know).
