I installed openstack Autopilot on physical machines. Now I can launch instances but they seems not to get an ip from any dhcp server so obviously I have no access to them. For example when I launch an instance with Xenial image in its log after going through a lot of lines like this:

...[[0m[0;31m*     [0m] A start job is running for Raise network interfaces...

It declares that Failed to start Raise network interfaces

Also juju status reports that

       current: blocked
       message: 'Services not running that should be: neutron dhcp-agent, neutron-vpn-agent'

Running neutron agent-listcommand reveals that many other services are not working probably either.

I tried to manually start "neutron dhcp-agent" on a node where neutron-gateway is placed but got this error

start: Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.9" (uid=1000 pid=99077 comm="start neutron-dhcp-agent ") interface="com.ubuntu.Upstart0_6.Job" member="Start" error name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination="com.ubuntu.Upstart" (uid=0 pid=1 comm="/sbin/init ")

Now I'm stranded by this mess not knowing what to do next. Please somebody help me out. Any hint would be greatly appreciated.

Finally I came across the neutron-ovs-cleanup service log which was error-ridden with

ImportError: cannot import name deploy

Then the quick guide given in this page ( ( did the rest. Well it was the incompatible version of this Python library (PasteDeploy) I guess that made the service fail and consequently led to other related networking services failure as well. So I ran pip uninstall --yes PasteDeploy && pip install 'PasteDeploy>=1.5.0' as instructed on the page above and all of a sudden it worked :-)
