I hava installed firewall v2 and configed as fwaas-v2-scenario advised. But when I used neutronclient firewall command, neutron-server would return 404.

The only message in server.log is

INFO neutron.wsgi [req-cd3cc54e-8bc4-47df-bfd6-e73b64d0c692 b6772959def84a629e27f256e2e0aa36 f332909670c841abb78c2e30e8c50c68 - - -] - - [24/Nov/2016 11:23:21] "POST /v2.0/fw/firewall_rules.json HTTP/1.1" 404 333 1.748158.

Does anyone meet the problem? Please give me any useful ideas. Thank you!

Check corresponding tables/look into execution of neutron db-manage that you have done within installation of FWWAS. I think execution of that command has failed. Maybe having DEBUG logging and repeating the command will give you more insight.

"neutron-db-manage --subproject neutron-fwaas upgrade head" is OK

l3 agent log would output "ERROR NoSuchMethod: Endpoint does not support RPC method get_firewalls_for_tenant" when it restarts. I think the fwaas config is not effectiv, because it doesn't use

zhangoic this error (NoSuchMehtod) is caused due to wrong configuration. You must have the same version drivers in both Server and Agent. So in your l3_agent.ini change the [AGENT]/extensions = fwaas_v2. In neutron.conf set [fwaas]/driver = iptables_v2 and [fwaas]/agent_version = v2.

Yes, you are right.

I have met the same problem. For the beginning i had but configuration on server and l3-agent but now after a correct configuration no errors in the logs, but when i try firewall commands (e.x neutron firewall-list) 404 returns to me.

I have spent enough hours on github to search the code but i cannot find other details. I need the firewall feature to put the openstack newton on my production environment.

Finally i found the answer why 404 returns, the problem isn't problem, but no feature cover. In project neutronclient the fwaasV2 not supported. There is a new feature request but is in progress ( ( So you must work with fwaasV2 with rest API because neutron client and openstack client works only with default firewall.

You are right ! I also find that the neutronclient doesn't support firewall v2. The official configuration of fwaas v2 has mistake either.
