I am going through the Quickstart installation but am getting an error with my network.

(Ref: )

I am installing using this command initially: packstack --allinone

Then I tried this:

/usr/bin/packstack --gen-answer-file=/root/packstack-AnswerFile.cfg
/usr/bin/packstack --answer-file=/root/packstack-AnswerFile.cfg

I kep on getting this error:                   [ ERROR ]
Applying Puppet manifests                               [ ERROR ]

ERROR : Error appeared during Puppet run:
Error : Execution of '/usr/bin/neutron router-gateway-set router1 public'
    returned 1: Multiple network matches found for name 'public', use an ID to be more specific.

To fix, I have tried this:

source keystonerc_demo
neutron net-list

(NOTE: extra carriage returns added as it makes it readable)

neutron net-delete iddf03b88f-3e7d-480d-b826-ab77b9b394d6
    Unable to find network with name 'iddf03b88f-3e7d-480d-b826-ab77b9b394d6'

I think that I am on the right track but can not figure out how to remove the extra public subnets I have checked the man page, the documentation and google and am pretty certain that the syntax is correct.

How can I delete the extra public networks please, or how can I completely remove everything for packstack / OpenStack.

You are close. You are using the net-delete however the ID you are listing isn't correct. You added "id" to the beginning of it. Instead you are going to use a command such as:

neutron net-delete df03b88f-3e7d-480d-b826-ab77b9b394d6

See if that works.

Thank you. Yes that worked.

Great! Most of the CLI commands you'll issue will actually just expect the ID (uuid) so you were halfway there.
