  • I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 with Juno all-in-one installation.
  • I'm having trouble to bind tenant network (type vlan) to a router (which is connected to a flat network).
  • I'm using the linuxbridge agent with ml2 plugin, with flat network configuration for my external traffic (which is provisioned ok) and tenant network types is set to vlan where I get :
  • "vif_type: binding_failed"
  • "In _notify_port_updated(), no bound segment for port"
  • "not defined on plugin"

since it's type vlan, i presume it's from physnet3 which is not in physical_interface_mappings - that would it explain why the binding failed

Can't I have my physical interface mapping as flat and internal networks as type vlan?

type vlan provider neutron networks are backed by physical networks via bridges to switch trunk ports. Since you have an all-in-one, type local will do for internal networks.

setting type local won't do vlan encapsulation? can you please elaborate on type local, and what will be my external NIC? flat?

yes - you can use type local for the internals and flat for the external
