hi everyone, during the openstack install (Network Node Configuration Step) , I followed all the commands shown on the setup guide: ( , but when I came to show the agent-list with the command: neutron agent-list , I found that the neutron L3_agent was missing , I got only : DHCP , Metadata and OVS agents. I am using four physical machines : Controller (2 NICS : 1st going to Internet , 2nd going to LAN) , Compute Node1, Compute Node 2 , and Network Node where I setup the agents. can you help please ? is something wrong with what I've done so far ? thanks,

Well , I addressed the issue , actually all my agents were dead excepte the openvswitch , and the logs from /var/neutron/xxx-agent were showing that "rabbit" name was not found which leads me to the neutron.conf file, so I had to comment out the line in question : rpc_backend = rabbit in /etc/neutron/neutron.conf and could get all my agents alive and present after a neutron agent-list run. I don't know if this is a bug or could be reported so .
