I am working on openstack havana environment. I have a havana multinode setup with controller, network and compute nodes. I am trying to enable lbass service, But i am getting below errors.

On Controller Node:

I modified openstack-dashboard local_setting.py and enabled lbass service.

I modified /etc/neutron/neutron.conf and made sure it has the following lines:


Then I restarted neutron-server daemon

On Network Node:

I modified neutron.conf added the following lines:

# Advanced service modules
# service_plugins =
service_plugins = neutron.services.loadbalancer.plugin.LoadBalancerPlugin

I modified lbaas_agent.ini:

interface_driver = neutron.agent.linux.interface.OVSInterfaceDriver
device_driver = neutron.services.loadbalancer.drivers.haproxy.namespace_driver.HaproxyNSDriver
user_group = haproxy

I restarted lbaas & neutron-server daemons.

when trying to add pools to lbaas I get ERROR: can't add pools etc ...

I am also getting a weird disabled option on the lbaas_pool add window: Provider for load balance is not supported.

To enable lbass I followed instructions provided on https://community.rackspace.com/products/f/45/t/3312

Install HAproxy. :P. That might be the correct answer. You can view more information in the logs for the LBaaS agent. If it says "can't find HAproxy" then you need to install it and start it. Chkconfig it on as well!
