Openstack client: "Floating ip pool operations are only available for Compute v2 network"

asked 2016-11-28 02:19:12 -0500

What is this message supposed to mean? I am running a Newton devstack with Nova API v2.1. The message appears when I run

openstack floating ip pool list
edit retag flag offensive close merge delete



Since pools don't exist in Neutron, listing them doesn't make sense. Instead, I should just list the external networks.

I believe I know the answer, but it would be great if somebody could confirm this. Neutron doesn't talk about floating IP pools; this is an older concept from Nova Network. The Neutron API to create floating IPs requires the name of an external network, not a pool.
