This is a tale of a problem and its solution. I'm posting it to the mailing list to make it googlable by someone who experiences the same problem. This is why I'm also packing it with SEO keywords.

===The only thing I'd like to ask the community=== is to help me identify the proper places in documentation and wiki which could be improved with this experience. Just point me, and I'll improve them.

  • I suffered from not knowing what the network is supposed to look like with each networking mode - which interfaces should there be, how they should be configured (e.g. which should have an IP address and which shouldn't), which pings should work and which shouldn't. Also, which piece of code is supposed to do this piece of network configuration, on behalf of whom and when.
  • I suffered from lack of a trouble-shooting guide.

Hi Have you created needed rules in Security Group for allowing ping. If possible Give more details like. Openstack Version, Architecture, and any logs if you have found any.
