Troubleshooting connectivity to my instance I found that the namespace for the router which should be handling the traffic for that instance, was missing.


ip netns list | grep qrouter-<router-uuid>

comes back empty.

How did this happen and what's the best way to fix this without deleting and recreating the router.

Please, run
$ neutron router-port-list your-router-name

Taking a look in the vpn_agent.log, I noticed:

TRACE neutron.agent.linux.interface Stderr: '/usr/bin/neutron-rootwrap: Executable not found: conntrack (filter match = conntrack)\n'

Installed conntrack, added the namespace (with only a down loopback interface at the time of creation) and restarted neutron-vpn-agent.

Looks like my namespace is back and connectivity has been resolved.

If I use an admin account I get both ports: internal and external. Where are we going with this?

Please, launch CirrOS VM , try to assign floating IP and ping this IP
If all goes well run ip netns as admin.

Launched. Floating i assigned, interfaces on the routers up. Ping failed. ip netns comes back the same: the namespace is missing on the neutron host.

Terminal on the machine can't ping the interface of the router on the network:

I would try neutron router-gateway-clear router-id and recreate external network, re set up gateway.
Just in case update question with ovs-vsctl show on network node.
