I am using devstack icehouse. Wheneven I generate floating ip from horizon or through command line, it always get generated with its status 'DOWN'. How its status can be made "ACTIVE" or how can I generate floating ip with "ACTIVE" status? Which files need to be modified? What are things I need to check in order to know why it is generating with "DOWN" status? What are the things required for generating active floating ip?

I experienced that the status is sometimes buggy. Try to ping this ip first. Then try to associate this IP to an instance and see if you can ping it also. This might be a bug, but, if the IP is "pingable" then its status is clearly not "down" even if it says so. Keep us updated.

I have tried to ping the ip but the ip is not "pingable".I have also tried to associate it with an instance and then ping the ip. In this case also ip is not pingable.
