Hi everyone, i work on openSUSE 13.2 and i installed openstack (KILO version) on it.

I have 4 nodes :

  • controller
  • compute
  • networkg
  • storage( with glance)

The problem is that i can't launch instances... i have this error message : Build of instance "$UUID" aborted: Could not clean up failed build, not rescheduling. All my service run normally but in my DB neutron, in the table "ml2_port_bindings" it tell me vif_type = binding_failed. So i think the probleme is from the network node... my log file doesn't tell me anything about this problem except the file "/var/log/neutron/neutron-openvswitch-agent.log" which tell me : " Device $UUID not defined on plugin"

Did anyone had this problem ? In my network node, i have only 2 interfaces, not 3.

Need help, please tell me if you need more information about my environment ..

Thank you in advance

What is value of bridge_mapping in openvswitch_agent.ini or OVS section of ml2_plugin.ini ?

in which node? In network node : [ovs] local_ip = x.x.x.x bridge_mappings = external:br-ex

nothing in compute node. Thank you a lot for your answer.

On any node :-

bridge_mappings =physnet1:br-ex

check your "/etc/neutron/plugins/ml2/ml2_conf.ini" and /etc/neutron/neutron.conf.
It maybe related to the driver configuration in ml2_conf.ini:
firewall_driver = neutron.agent.linux.iptables_firewall.OVSHybridIptablesFirewallDriver

hi, thank you for your answer.

My driver configuration is OK :/

so the problem isn't from this... Thank you again for your answer

Edit /etc/neutron/plugins/ml2/ml2_conf.ini on both compute and network node


‘tunnel_type = gre’ to ‘tunnel_types = gre’

And Restart the services.


service openvswitch  restart
service neutron-openvswitch-agent restart


service neutron-openvswitch-agent restart
service neutron-l3-agent restart
service neutron-dhcp-agent restart
service neutron-metadata-agent restart

Hi, thank you fo your answer.

There was already an "s" at "types" in my conf , so the problem isn't from this.

Thank you again for your answer.

Check your neutron configuration files especially ml2_conf.ini and your chosen neutron plugin configuration.

I had the same problem when upgrading to liberty and didn't notice that all openvswitch configuration in ml2 switched to a dedicated configuration in ml2 folder.

So this is most likely a configuration problem in neutron.
