Hello! I'm trying to install openstack on single host node using devstack. So, I configured public network and private network then made subnet for each network. And attached the router to interconnect both subnet.

my host environment like below OS: Ubuntu 14.04 Kernel version: 3.13.0-32-generic Devstack git branch: Master branch

  • br-ex has network interface (eth0) which is connected to public network.

#neutron net-create public --shared --router:external=True

#neutron subnet-create --name public-subnet --gateway PUBLIC_GW_IP --allocation-pool start=IP_OF_FIRST,end=IP_OF_LAST public PUBLIC_IP_RANGE --dns_nameservers list=true

#neutron net-create private

#neutron subnet-create --name private private --dns_nameservers list=true

#neutron router-create public-router

#neutron router-gateway-set public-router public

#neutron router-interface-add public-router private

Currently, I can reach to (private subnet gateway) and public interface (which is attached on public-subnet, it has public ip-address.) But, I could not connect VM to External network (for instance host-ip-address (public)).

Can you give me any comment?? Thanks!!

You don't mention what exactly the failure is. But if you have set up external and private (tenant) network according to the example in the installation guide, the external network belong to admin tenant while the private network should be owned by non-admin tenant.

A non-admin user can't attach instances directly to the external network then, but only to his tenant network.

The failure was that I could not communicate VM (was assigned floating IP) from HOST. and I tried to do as your comment. Thank you for your answer!
