Hi All,

I'm using the Mitaka OpenStack on an all-in-one setup. When I try to associate a floating IP, it doesn't find one. I know there should be some available, as this shows me there are only 2 in use:

[root@openstack test-grant(keystone_admin)]# neutron floatingip-list +--------------------------------------+------------------+---------------------+--------------------------------------+ | id | fixed_ip_address | floating_ip_address | port_id | +--------------------------------------+------------------+---------------------+--------------------------------------+ | 39d24eef-9743-4c70-870f-2cc43936e848 | | | ccf8d872-c518-47db-93f8-ead841f6d9c9 | | 66b2e3e9-20cc-4cea-81ae-184554b5bc15 | | | 7c640741-0111-495c-9945-aee88649fc6c | +--------------------------------------+------------------+---------------------+--------------------------------------+ [root@openstack test-grant(keystone_admin)]#

When I created the floating IP range, I assigned So why aren't the other IPs showing up? I had created some other instances that had floating IPs, but have since deleted them, so I thought OpenStack would release them.

Please advise. Thanks.

FIPs allocated to deleted instances , you may find here

Then create new VM , navigate to Access& Security=>Floating IPs and reassign previously allocated FIP to your project to newly created VM.

This is what I was looking for. Thanks.

Looks like I'm still having problems. I dissociated the FIP, created a new instance. and now I can't assign any more FIPs. This is odd as I have several unnassigned FIPs in my allocation pool, and I made sure I disassociated the unused FIPs. Where do I go from here?

Attempt create new VM with fixed IP. Navigate to panel above. Select free FIP and click button "Associate".
You should get option NewVMname:assignedFixedIP link free FIP from the pool, if your previous setup of Openstack is correct. It works for me on multinode RDO Mitaka deployments.

Panel above also allows to allocate new FIPs for project from available pool. I suggest reopen question if problem still persists.
