Hi There,

I have a shared neutron network owned by admin tenant (i check the shared option), and I try to deploy an instance in other tenant, i can see the network and select in as part of instance deployment.

When the deployment complete, apparently the NIC is not attached in the VM (i check it from the hypervisor level). There is a blog stating a similar problem here: ( , but apparently their issue only affects when they share an external network.

I use default nova/policy.json Anyone have idea on what to check?

Thank you

Per link you posted, seems like you created vlan external net. Like this

# neutron net-create vlan100 --shared --provider:network_type vlan --provider:segmentation_id 100 --provider:physical_network vlan100 --router:external
# neutron subnet-create --name vlan100 --gateway --allocation-pool start=,end= --enable-dhcp --dns-nameserver vlan100

If my guess is correct, then I have a question, how look files :-

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-* ( connecting you to external vlan network)
