Hi ,

I am developing my own virtual machine image which is basically a linux from scratch(custom proprietary linux) .(not redhat or ubuntu etc)

I am able to boot my image and get the ip address through dhcp etc.But I am not able to get the metadata using the url "" .

What are the changes needs to be done for getting the metadata.

I have added the route for link-local.The routes are as follows

10.x.x.x * eth0 * eth0 default 10.x.x.x eth0

PS: A redhat image in the same network is able to get the i think it has nothing to do with openstack setup

Are you able to hit the IP from the instance? All of the other images are using cloud-init with other tools that are looking for user-data to pull in information about the instance:

I am able to hit the ip address.But I can see the arp resolve shows different destination mac address between the 2 instances.
