Hi ,

I'm testing the lbaas in Havana . have the following settings :

subnet web1 - web2 - vip -

pool lb with web 1 and 2 as members. ping to vip works but wget to vip gives - connection refused error like:

ip netns exec qrouter-46e8dc37-46df-4a2f-bcd5-f71da5ab0e5e wget -O - --2014-04-22 12:12:57-- Connecting to failed: Connection refused.

/usr/share/neutron/neutron-dist.conf: service_provider =

/etc/neutron/neutron.conf service_plugins =

/etc/neutron/lbaas_agent.ini: interface_driver = neutron.agent.linux.interface.OVSInterfaceDriver device_driver =

What can be a problem ?


launched 2 VMs with a simple web running , created new pool , added

If you wget the two web server directly do you reach the web pages?

Do you have any ERROR in your neutron log files? (if so pastebin them)

Thanks ,

I think I found what caused the problem .We are using the RH openstack edition .I inspected the /var/log/neutron/lbaas-agent.log and noticed a lot of errors like:

parsing [/var/lib/neutron/lbaas/21ec4386-4dad-4479-9de7-56c50dc83c94/conf:4] : cannot find group id for 'nogroup' (0:Success)\n[ALERT] 111/133154 (25963) : Error(s) found in configuration file : /var/lib/neutron/lbaas/21ec4386-4dad-4479-9de7-56c50dc83c94/conf\n[ALERT] 111/133154 (25963) : Fatal errors found in configuration.\n"

And it turned out that nogroup was not exist .So , I added it manually , enabled it in lbaas_agent.ini ( user_group = nogroup ) and restarted relevant services .Now VIP has port 80 opened .

Will contact RH on possible bug .

I have the same problem in RHEL 6.5 I have changed lbaas_agent.ini user_group = group is commented, I uncommented. I still get the same error in the logs. Anything else needs to be done. Could you please paste your lbaas_agent.ini file

I think the correct value should be:

user_group = nogroup
