I have Openstack installed by RDO allinone .

It has 2 networks + subnets : internal and public (external) connected by a router .

The ports of the public subnet are at state down and the interface of the router connected to the public subnet also comes out at down state

I want to enable (up) them so that floating IPs assigned to a VM (already assigned during launch) can ping /connect out of the openstack .

e.g using 'neutron router-update ' needs specify the json (or XML) parameters to be changed . but I could not find how these parametesr are specified . Like I tried :

neutron router-update <router id=""> {"subnet_id": "78f3a24c-8be5-47fb-b21d-91f4e5f7671d", "enable": true }

and get back : Invalid values_specs ( with and without the "subnet_id" specified )

I could not find the exact syntax and the possible update fields in the Web

Anybody knows ?

The DOWN state has to do with the current implementation of the "External" network. It is a hacked up shared network with some side effects becasue of that.

Here is a blueprint talking about how to fix the current design.

As dubi pointed out you can safely ignore the DOWN state.
