I have started to working on VPN as a Service user case in OpenStack Mitaka version. After I could see VPN tab under network options in Opetstack dashboard. Tried to build VPN as a service with IPsec services like Strongswan.
While try to creating vpn services like IKE, IPsec Policies, VPN service and IPSec Site to Site connections status shows “Down”. Even I could not see any errors in vpn agent logs as well as neutron service logs . Let me know if any one knows this issue. Thanks in advance.

Regards, Siva

We had the same problem and ended up using openswan instead of strongswan.

Install openswan which will replace strongswan (it'll uninstall neutron-vpn-agent too):

apt-get install openswan

Reinstall neutron-vpn-agent:

apt-get install neutron-vpn-agent

Configure neutron to use the OpenSwan service provider and plugin driver.

Restart services:

service neutron-vpn-agent restart
service neutron-server restart

Check both provider and agents are running:

source openrc

neutron agent-list

neutron service-provider-list
