hi all, I have followed the installation guide of openstack juno. I deployed the three node architecture. I run all these three node in Ubuntu 14.04 on my Vmware. Each node I set an eth0 as a static ip via NAT to access Internet for downloading. On network node,
I have eth0(Internet,I set), eth1(management),eth2(instance tunnels),eth3(external, requred in the guide). The guide says:

# The external network interface
iface INTERFACE_NAME inet manual
        up ip link set dev $IFACE up
        down ip link set dev $IFACE down

I don't know what it means, how it works and how I can make my network node to access internet for the instance I will creat in my openstack by this way. I'm glad if anyone could help. If you need some information, pls tell me. Thank you!

That means you should create this device with the posted settings. In your case:

auto eth3
iface eth3 inet manual
        up ip link set dev $IFACE up
        down ip link set dev $IFACE down

after that ifup eth3 and the documented following steps (ovs br-ex if you'r using).

Each "mapped" floating IP will configured on the device directly by Neutron otherwise your hardware switches can't find your floating IP's with the correspond MAC.

Cheers Heiko
