Hi, I have 2 tenants, each have a router, now I want to route tenant A traffic to tenant B, so I add static route in the tenant routers, then, everything work fine. The problem is the static route will be lost after restarting. How to save it permanently? Thanks

For example: 1. Add a route into a tenant router: ip netns exec qrouter-b65e4316-6dad-40af-b002-430b311aa239 ip route add via

root@controller:/home/gavin# ip netns    exec    qrouter-b65e4316-6dad-40af-b002-430b311aa239 netstat -nr Kernel IP routing table  Destination     Gateway            Genmask         Flags   MSS Window   irtt Iface         UG        0 0          0 qg-ea383fb8-36   U         0 0          0 qg-ea383fb8-36    **   UG        0 0          0 qg-ea383fb8-36**   U         0 0          0 qr-209078ed-73

You could try adding it directly with Openstack... Try with:

neutron router-update ROUTER_UUID --router_rules type=dict list=true source=any,destination=any,action=permit source=EXAMPLE_CIDR(or any),destination=,action=permit,nexthops=

This configuration should apply again after reboot

neutron router-update ROUTER_UUID  --routes type=dict list=true

Yes, It works. And the route is still there after reboot. BTW, I can not find these options with -h in the neutron command, is this hidden or because bad help of the command, where can I find these? Thanks a lot. gravatar ( 2015-05-05 21:21:51 -0500 )edit
