Per your neutron-dhcp-agent is not running.
$ neutron agent-list
$ ifconfig
$ ovs-vsctl show
Post dhcp_agent.ini

First thank's for your fast answer. This is the result of the neutron agent-list call. I think that the dhcp-agent ist running on my controller (tb23) is it right? dhcp_agent.ini:

debug = False
resync_interval = 30
interface_driver =neutron.agent.linux.interface.OVSInterfaceDriver
dhcp_driver = neutron.agent.linux.dhcp.Dnsmasq    this string is missing

I checked it with on tb22 (controller) $ ps -ef | grep neutron-dhcp-dnsmasq stack 31577 30680 0 13:31 pts/0 00:00:00 grep --color=auto neutron-dhcp-dnsmasq

and compute-node: stack 20517 20440 0 13:34 pts/5 00:00:00 grep --color=auto neutron-dhcp-dnsmasq

is there something wrong in my local.conf? or is it normal that i have to post-configurate the ini files?

Verify status of service neutron-dhcp-agent
$ neutron agent-list
Check dnsmasq to be running :-
$ ps -ef | grep dnsmasq
Fix dhcp_agent.ini :-
dhcp_driver = neutron.agent.linux.dhcp.Dnsmasq

is it right that my Vlan didn't tag the Frames?

This is a part of the tcpdump after i reboot a VM on TB23. On TB 22 i get nothing.
