i have a external network defined and i am able to create network and router under tenant account. I am also able to launch instance and able to reach the internet from the VM, but VM stops reaching internet, once I associate floating IP to the VM. This is happening only for few tenants and not for all. Is there any thing which I am missing, I tried looking on, but did not find any solution.

That's an interesting issue. By default, the Neutron router grabs an IP from the external provider network will source NAT all traffic from VMs without a floating IP as that address. Couple of questions:

  • Is your external provider network a non-RFC1918 network, meaning the addresses are publicly routable?
  • Or is it an RFC1918 network? If so, do the other addresses in the network have some kind of external NAT that is responsible for translating them to an Internet-routable address?
  • Can you reach the instance via floating IP from within your network?
  • Can the instance reach resources within your network, even though it can't reach the Internet?
