We have set it up an Openstack diablo release cloud using two nodes. (2011.3-nova-milestone-tarball:tarmac-20110922115702-k9nkvxqzhj130av2)

Issue is when I start an instance , there is no IP assigned for the new instance. When login to the instance using vncviewer I could see that instance is halting at the time of boot with following messages. After the time out it boots without eth0 network interface.

Message at boot up :

cloud-init start local running: no instance data found in start-local cloud-init-nonet waiting 120 seconds for network device cloud-init-nonet gave up waiting for a network device ci-info:lo :1 route info failed mount event failed Stopping Handle applying cloud-config [ ok ]

Initially I tried to go ahead with openstack vlan networking but later changed to FlatNetworking. I have only one Network Device on Host server, where every communication go through that network. ( Externally configured dhcp which send ips on range to this environment)

I am getting following warining message on nova-network.log

DEBUG [cfd0c605-4ab2-4358-a786-b618e724a272 novaadmin proj] network allocations for instance 25 from (pid=4722) allocate_for_instance /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/nova/network/ 2011-12-23 15:19:25,537 WARNING [-] No fixed IPs for instance 25

Further, nova.conf

--dhcpbridge_flagfile=/etc/nova/nova.conf --dhcpbridge=/usr/bin/nova-dhcpbridge --logdir=/var/log/nova --state_path=/var/lib/nova --lock_path=/var/lock/nova --state_path=/var/lib/nova --verbose --s3_host= --rabbit_host= --cc_host= --nova_url= --fixed_range= --network_size=8 --routing_source_ip= --sql_connection=mysql://nova:<password>@ --glance_api_servers= --image_service=nova.image.glance.GlanceImageService --iscsi_ip_prefix=192.168.104. --use_deprecated_auth=true

/etc/network/interface is

auto lo iface lo inet loopback

auto br100 iface br100 inet static bridge_ports eth0 bridge_stp off bridge_maxwait 0 bridge_fd 0 address netmask network broadcast gateway

Further "nova-manage network list" displays following

id IPv4 IPv6 start address DNS1 DNS2 VlanID project uuid
11 None None None 100 proj None

Appreciate if someone could help me to resolve this asap.
