External Interface Down on Router - Network Node running on hyper-v 2012

asked 2015-03-30 10:50:09 -0600

Hi All,

I have been following the Juno install guide and have setup everything, however I am now getting networking issues when trying to use the gre plugin within Neutron.

All my management VMs are running on a Hyper-V 2012 server, and I have seperated the a Network node and my cloud controller. I can easily create new Networks, Routers, interfaces etc, but whenever I choose 'Set Gateway' to connect my network to the External Interface, I see 'Status: DOWN'.

Reading the istructions, it tells me to set Promiscous mode on the virtual switch, which I have done using cloudbases powershell module at: http://www.cloudbase.it/hyper-v-promiscuous-mode/ (http://www.cloudbase.it/hyper-v-promi...)

However, I am still unable to get this connection online, and route my instances onto the external network. Please can someone point me in the right direction?

Sorry for the bump, but does anyone know how I can start to troubleshoot this? Am I right in thinking that my network node should be set to 'destination', with my switch set to 'source'?

Some starting questions to help in troubleshooting your issue:

Did you install the Hyper-V compute and network components using the MSI? What is your network configuration in Neutron? Can you post your nova-compute and neutron agent logs (by default in C:\OpenStack\Logs)?

Hi Cloudbase,

Sorry for the late reply, I had missed your answer to this. I haven't installed any of the MSIs yet, as the management hyper-v cluster is not going to be a cluster within the environment. I imagine this could cause some issues, so I will get that installed aswell.

I will get the logs uploaded this evening.
