Hi, after installing and successfully deploying LBaaS v2 I am facing a problem

Installing The LBaaS v 2.0 panel into Horizon. Now I can use LBaaS v2 from CLI

Only which is fine But it takes a lot of time to build a setup that can be done in

A few minutes using Horizon.

I could not find a working solution for PackStack all in one setup as this is my test/training setup.

If anyone knows how to fix this, I will be really thankful...

Hello, I was in the same situation as you. And I could install LBAASv2 in Horizon. Works perfect in Mitaka. You must follow these steps:

Clone the neutron-lbaas-dashboard repository:

$ git clone
$ cd neutron-lbaas-dashboard

Install the Dashboard panel plug-in:

$ python install

And now you must Copy the file from the neutron-lbaas-dashboard/enabled directory into the Dashboard openstack_dashboard/local/enabled directory

Enable the plug-in in Dashboard by editing the file and setting enable_lb to True in the OPENSTACK_NEUTRON_NETWORK dictionary. In my case, that value was already in True

If Dashboard is configured to compress static files for better performance (usually set through COMPRESS_OFFLINE in, optimize the static files again:

$ ./ collectstatic
$ ./ compress

This last command didn't work. I don't know why.

And final, restart Apache(httpd) to activate the new panel:

$ service httpd restart

If you have any questions about where the files are, tell me about.

Greetings and hopefully this will work.

Hello, thanks for you great answer! I followed this guide step-by-step, also with the link that you provided ... but I'm not able to see the Load Balancer section in the horizon dashboard. Do you have any information about why this is happening? (I already delete the caché and still the same)

I will answer myself and I have to say that you also have to put the file into the directory

Hello, I followed these steps however, the ./manage commands do not work. I get a ImportError: No module named openstack_dashboard.settings error. I am using the ocata release of packstack. Any help would be appreciated.

I got the same, but when I used this address " /usr/share/openstack-dashboard/ " instead, it's worked fine
