I have installed and configured openstack Havana in Host server machine. But when i try to reach the metadata server from host using,curl it is not reachable and returns error saying, The Web Server may be down, too busy, or experiencing other problems preventing it from responding to requests. You may wish to try again at a later time.

Run below command : ip netns exec qdhcp-7372e6bb-515d-4b20-b7da-e64f75455962 ip a

It should contain : inet brd scope global tap490286f4-0c

Also in VM , route -n will contain : UGH 0 0 0 eth0

From HOST, you will not any result for curl but from inside VM, you will get results.

Reason becuase this IP is configured for each dhcp namespace.
