I have installed openstack grizzly in RHEL 6.3. I have configured quantum with openvswitch. I am able to create an instance and attach a floeating Ip to it. I am also able to reach the instance using the floating IP. Now I am trying to create LBaaS. I am floowing ( to configure LBaaS. Everytime I create a pool, the pool is in Pending Create state. Its not coming as active. lbaas-agent service is running. Following things I have noticed:

1.quantum agent-list does not show the lbaas agent -- not sure this is the default behavious. 2.Network namespaces is working. I am able to see the network namespaces created by DHCP and L3 agents. Also I can run ip netns command. 3. I did not get any meaningful logs in quantum server log and lbaas-agent log.

If anyone can throw some light.

Thanks & Regards Nilanjan

One thing I forgot to mention -- I am using Grizzly stable release.

  1. Grizzly release doesn't support agent scheduling for LBaaS, so you cannot see lbaas agent with agent-list command.
  2. When you create pool only it doesn't lead to anything on the agent side. Once you bind a VIP to the pool, they both will change their state from PENDING_CREATE to ACTIVE and represent a working load balancer.
