I create a instance. it looks fine.

| ID                                   |  Name  | Status   | Task State | Power State | Networks          +--------------------------------------+--------+----------+------------+-------------+----------+

I logined instance,and I ping myself ip in instance.( it show error message,""network is unreachable"".

I look neutron's server.log but not error message.

after... i found ""network fail"" in intance's console log

Activate dnsmasq.log and check what happens with dhcp request ( instance ) dhcp responce ( dnsmasq )

dbaxps gravatar imagedbaxps ( 2015-08-21 04:33:24 -0500 )edit

hello, I don't find dnsmasq.log in /var/log/neutron/.

but in dhcp_agent.ini have this setting dhcp_driver = neutron.agent.linux.dhcp.Dnsmasq

should i install dnsmasq? or what could i do ?

thank you.

Using field as comment :-
SOLVED via troubleshooting VXLAN tunnel && Resetting OVS
I guess, that message in neutron-server.log

   2015-08-24 09:35:27.692 16994 WARNING keystonemiddleware.auth_token [-] Authorization failed for token
   2015-08-24 09:35:27.692 16994 INFO keystonemiddleware.auth_token [-] Invalid user token - rejecting request

Causes failure to create a port when nova boot instance
See : -

Now its very evident that the keystone service is not accepting the credentials. If its an authentication error verify the password that is set for the neutron user account residing in keystone database. The next option is to verify neutron.conf in network node. In my case while re-configuring neutron password for neutron user in /etc/neutron/neutron.conf is incorrect. After changing the password keystone accepts authentication and neutron service is running successfully.


    Check neutron-server.log regarding successful connection to rabbitmq
    When you start instance , issue :-
    $ neutron port-list --device-id   instance-id

Pease, reproduce on your system

hello, dnsmasq-neutron.conf is not existed in /etc/neutron/ ,then i create the file and add config.

dnsmasq.log is updated in the above post.

but I am confused what happened on log.

the problem is also existing.

I have a question. I using vxlan mode. Is it different setting config?

thank you!

Try to recreate private network and post corresponding CLI command && ovs-vsctl show && ifconfig as UPDATE 1 to your question.

How was the image created from which you created an instance , Can you test out this issue via default cirros image

$ mkdir images
$ cd images/
$ wget

Load the source file

glance image-create --name="CirrOS-0.3.1" --disk-format=qcow2    --container-format=bare --is-public=true < cirros-0.3.1-x86_64-disk.img

Create an instance using this image an observe what happens to ipconfiguration, Is the DHCP server enabled on the demonet.

hello, i created image as you say.(i use cirros-0.3.3-x86_64.img) but i don't know how to observe what happens to ipconfiguration, could you tell me,please?
