im trying to setup up a 3 node openstack cloud as in the document of ubuntu 14.04 LTS. im using a vmware workstation 9, with windows 8 as the host os. i have setup everything n its pinging fine(all the node ping each other and windows pings the managment node too). my question is that

1 i cant ping the  floation ip i created ?
2 due to this i cant create instance, the creation shows spawning
3 i done know if my vmware is in promescuious mode or no.
->i skipped this external network creation part :
The external network interface
iface INTERFACE_NAME inet manual
        up ip link set dev $IFACE up
        down ip link set dev $IFACE down
i had replaced INTERFACE_NAME with eth0(my nat connection on vmware).
->after creating a br-ex, internet connection doesnt work.

i have been searching for the solution for a long time, anyone pointing the right direction would be a great help.thanks in advance

I had a similar problem when using Virtualbox instead of VMWare Workstation. The solution was to add a route as described by in the previous answer by amitabh sinha.

Check the routing table where you are not able to connet to the internet.(I guess it is your network node) 1. Use route -n to get the details of your routing path

you might observe that you are having two gateway's one on eth0 and another on br-ex. Delete the gateway using command :-"route delete default gw ip dev eth0"

Now I am sure you will able to reach internet (ex:ping google.com ) verify your connectons using ping.
