Fuel deployment: host unreachable on br-mgmt

I have deployed 3 physical nodes using Fuel in a 1+2 configuration: 1 controller/mongo, 2 compute/storage. The nodes have 2 physical nics: eth0 and eth1. Cluster was deployed with Neutron networking/Open vSwitch

On eth0 it configured 3 networks: br-mgmt (with vlan tag 1199), br-storage (also with vlan tag 1198) and br-fw-admin (Without vlan tag). After deployment the nodes can talk to each other on br-fw-admin ips but not on br-mgmt ips, so after install, compute service on compute node cannot reach rabbitmq (EHOSTUNREACH).

As a note: Eth0 interfaces are connected to a managed switch and are part of a vlan segment (tag 1011). Eth1 interfaces are connected to a public managed switch without vlan tagging.

Question: how should i configure the interfaces so that traffic passes between nodes on br-mgmt and br-storage?

The ports of the managed switch connected to eth0 interfaces should be configured in trunk mode in order to allow the following types of vlan traffic:

  • br-mgmt with vlan tag 1199
  • br-storage with vlan tag 1198
  • br-fw-admin that is traffic sended without any tag so you have to set any pvid for these ports(you wrote the pvid 1011 I think)

Using HP/Comware syntax you have to configure each switch port connected to eth0 interfaces as in the following example:

[HP]interface FuelEth0InterfaceName
[FuelEth0InterfaceName]port link-type trunk       # Configure trunk lynk type 
[FuelEth0InterfaceName]undo port trunk permit vlan 1  # Remove default vlan 1
[FuelEth0InterfaceName]port trunk permit vlan 1199    # Allow tagged traffic for vlan 1199
[FuelEth0InterfaceName]port trunk permit vlan 1198    # Allow tagged traffic for vlan 1199
[FuelEth0InterfaceName]port trunk pvid vlan 1011      # Allow untagged packets and assign to it the vlan id 1011
[FuelEth0InterfaceName]undo shutdown

You maybe have eth0 switch ports configured in access mode that allow only the packets without vlan tag, indeed you can ping two fuels nodes using br-fw-admin interfaces. You should configure these ports on the switch in trunk mode.

So... you mean i have to configure the switch itself to pass traffic with vlans 1199 and 1198? I don't think i can do that as i don't have access to it.

Is there a way to "untag" the br-mgmt and br-storage so that it works like br-fw-admin?

Yes if you use VLAN tag in fuel you have to configure also these vlan on the switch. Are you using fuel installation of mirantis openstack? You can "untag" br-mgmt and br-storage but you need other 2 interfaces(for example eth2 and eth3) for each openstack server
