Hi, I'm having below lines in my /etc/nova/nova.conf ..


and below lines in my ovs plugin file i.e /etc/neutron/plugins/openvswitch/ovs_neutron_plugin.ini

    firewall_driver = neutron.agent.linux.iptables_firewall.OVSHybridIptablesFirewallDriver

But still my neutron security groups are not working and are producing below errors..

    # neutron security-group-list
    404 Not Found
    The resource could not be found.

My all other neutron commands are working fine

Please help regarding this.

What does core_plugin in /etc/neutron/neutron.conf say? Does that plugin have 'security-group' in the list supported_extension_aliases member variable?

  • Hi

    Thanks for the reply.

    The core_plugin in /etc/neutron/neutron.conf is neutron.plugins.openvswitch.ovs_neutron_plugin.OVSNeutronPluginV2

Restart the neutron-server and then look for something like " INFO neutron.api.extensions [-] Loaded extension: security-group", do you see that?

I'll test this and let you know this in morning I.S.T.

Sounds good. When I say "should be commented out" I mean by default it is commented out, you'll want to remove the comment and verify that it matches the same driver.

I believe I ran into issues with this before where you also have to specify it in /etc/neutron/neutron.conf. It should be commented out or not have anything included, then you need to verify that it has the same driver as the ovs plugin.
