I'm trying to install Kilo by following this guide:

6. Add a networking component > OpenStack Networking (neutron) > Install and configure compute node

To configure prerequisites

Before you install and configure OpenStack Networking, you must configure certain kernel networking parameters.

  1. Edit the /etc/sysctl.conf file to contain the following parameters:

  2. Implement the changes:

    # sysctl -p

When I followed 2., these error messages appear:

# sysctl -p
net.ipv4.conf.default.rp_filter = 0
net.ipv4.conf.all.rp_filter = 0
sysctl: cannot stat /proc/sys/net/bridge/bridge-nf-call-iptables: No such file or directory
sysctl: cannot stat /proc/sys/net/bridge/bridge-nf-call-ip6tables: No such file or directory

Do I need to fix this before proceeding? If yes, please help me.

This would indicate you are missing the bridge kernel module. Without it, there is little hope you can accomplish anything in OpenStack. The libvirt wiki contains a page on this, perhaps it helps.
