I followed the instructions (chapter 2 to chapter 7) at ( to setup openstack on a single VM. I observed that one of the interfaces on the router shows its status as DOWN. Is this an issue and how do I go about resolving this? NOTE: I am unable to attach a screenshot as I do not have more than 10 karma points yet to upload an image

you don't need to attach screenshots, you can copy and paste the text from the console output and format it appropriately.
