# Failing to create Provider Network Openstack Mitaka RHEL

I currently have a setup of three servers. One consisting of the Controller, Neutron and Identity, and two others as computes. I have been able to do this on Ubuntu, but when I try installing OpenStack on RHEL there seems to be some errors. One of the more prominent errors has had to do with provider networks. When I run the command:

neutron subnet-create --name provider \
--dns-nameserver DNS_RESOLVER --gateway PROVIDER_NETWORK_GATEWAY \
provider PROVIDER_NETWORK_CIDR


the GUI pops up the cloud icon instead of the Globe. The cloud usually represents self-service networks; however, I need a provider, and then a self-service network, otherwise the VMs won't be able to ping out.

Below are some relevant configurations.

Controller Node =>

/etc/nova/nova.conf:

[neutron]
url = http://controller:9696
auth_url = http://controller:35357
project_domain_name = default
user_domain_name = default
region_name = RegionOne
project_name = service


/etc/neutron/plugins/ml2/ml2_conf.ini:

[ml2]
type_drivers = flat,vlan,vxlan
tenant_network_types = vxlan
mechanism_drivers = linuxbridge,l2population
extension_drivers = port_security

[ml2_type_flat]
flat_networks = provider


/etc/neutron/plugins/ml2/linuxbridge_agent.ini:

[linux_bridge]
physical_interface_mappings = provider:eth1


Compute 1&2 => /etc/nova/nova.conf:

[neutron]
url=http://controller:9696
auth_url = http://controller:35357
project_domain_name = default
user_domain_name = default
region_name = RegionOne
project_name = service

/etc/neutron/plugins/ml2/linuxbridge_agent.ini:
[linux_bridge]
