That is normal behavior. It is expected to be fixed in Havana. Here are the tips: 1. Ensure the VM instance got an IP address..look at console.log

  1. Ext NIC settings – no ip on the logical and might like to assign ip on br-ex. Typically, looks like: auto eth2 iface eth2 inet manual up ifconfig $IFACE up up ip link set $IFACE promisc on down ip link set $IFACE promisc off down ifconfig $IFACE down

auto br-ex iface br-ex inet static address netmask

  1. All bridges on all the nodes (br-ex, br-int, br-tun) needs to up and running (must add in interfaces to ensure it is UP on reboot)

  2. If using vmware as virtualized environment, promiscuous setting to Accept on the vSwitch. Or, must be set on hardware switch

Hrushi, I also encountered this issue: Cannot access external network from instance. I built three nodes on VMWare virtual machines, so I change the promiscuous to Accept on the vSwitch, the issue was fixed. Thanks! One more question: Do you mean this is an issue of OpenStack? And this issue will be fixed in next release, after it's fixed, will not need change the promiscuous setting to Accept on vSwitch, right?
