I am using Juno over Ubuntu Trying to load ml2_conf_sriov.ini configuration file using the command:

neutron-server --config-file /etc/neutron/neutron.conf --config-file /etc/neutron/plugins/ml2/ml2_conf.ini --config-file /etc/neutron/plugins/ml2/ml2_conf_sriov.ini

However according to neutron-server log file, the configuration file is not loaded when restarting neutron-server or rebooting:

more /var/log/neutron/server.log

2015-02-05 10:39:29.344 2103 INFO neutron.common.config [-] Logging enabled! 2015-02-05 10:39:29.352 2103 DEBUG neutron.service [-] ************************** log_opt_values /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/oslo/config/ 8 2015-02-05 10:39:29.353 2103 DEBUG neutron.service [-] Configuration options gathered from: log_opt_values /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/oslo/config/ 2015-02-05 10:39:29.354 2103 DEBUG neutron.service [-] command line args: ['--config-file', '/etc/neutron/neutron.conf', '--log-file', '/var/log/neutron/server.log', '--config-file', '/etc/neutron/plugins/m l2/ml2_conf.ini'] log_opt_values /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/oslo/config/ 2015-02-05 10:39:29.355 2103 DEBUG neutron.service [-] config files: ['/etc/neutron/neutron.conf', '/etc/neutron/plugins/ml2/ml2_conf.ini'] log_opt_values /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/oslo/config/ :1931

I tired with different ml2 configuration files, but none of them was taken by neutron server as "config file" during service restart.

Can anyone please advise?

Hey hey,

what output do you have with:

# ps -ef | grep neutron

I see this:

# ps -ef | grep neutron
neutron  18100     1  0 12:47 ?        00:00:18 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/neutron-server --config-file /etc/neutron/neutron.conf --log-file /var/log/neutron/server.log --config-file /etc/neutron/plugins/ml2/

There i can see that the file is loaded

And what shows

  # ll /etc/neutron/
  # ll /etc/neutron/plugins/ml2/

right permissions and right user:group on all the files ?

Hi. ps output showed that the config files are not loaded. I needed to stop the service, manually edit /etc/init/neutron-server.conf startup script so neutron server will be loaded with the 2 configuration files and restart the service.

Now it work ? Whats with the permissions ? Is there all right ?

Whats in your /etc/default/neutron-server config ? It must look like that:


The /etc/init/neutron-server.conf will parse this parameter!

Now it works. the permissions were ok. the /etc/default/neutron-server config is same as yours.
