[Test process]
1. launch an instance in horizon
2. select image, network, security rule...etc
[Test result]:
1.2 IP addresses are shown to be attached to the created instance(eg: and
2.go to network tab and check ports: port is in status down while port is in status up(both are up in admin status) is actually assigned to the instance

How come 2 IP address are shown? I am using provider network of openstack mitaka. I am not using any OVS tool to configure the network. FYI. This issue won't occur if you launch instances with CLI. It happens only when using horizon and heat template to create instances.

Hi, ghostist. I'm facing exactly the same issue while using openstack API. Have you managed to solve this problem or maybe figured out what causes this??
