I'm running an openstack multinode configuration (3 compute nodes), IceHouse, CentOS 6.5. I use flat networking with VLAN tagging.

When I boot up and instance, it does not get any DHCP from the network node.

I've set the VLAN range to be from 1401 to 1403, but when I boot up and instance and do this on the compute node; cat /var/log/neutron/openvswitch-agent.log | grep "tag=" I can only see networks tagged for VLAN 1 og 2.

When I do; tail -f /var/log/neutron/openvswitch-agent.log I get this message constantly popping up;

The same message is popping up on the compute nodes hosting virtual machines.

The control-flows on the network node seems ok as well(?);

Forgot to update this, but my problem was solved when I found out that my physical interface used with the VM-configuration network was down. Simply running ifup interface, where interface refers to the particular interface, solved it. I configured my ifcfg file to start the interface at boot time, adding the ONBOOT=YES parameter.
