Cause for strange network config?

Trying to set up Kilo on Centos according to the install guide, I hit a brick wall with neutron configuration.

This is what I expect on the network node after launching an instance and associating a floating IP with it:

  • The qrouter-xxxxx NW namespace has NAT configured, and contains the router's gateway interface with the floating IP
  • br-ex contains the router's gateway interface, qg-yyyyyyy

Instead, I don't see any NAT, and qg-yyyyyy is plugged into br-int. Details below.

Any idea what misconfiguration could cause this? I have gone over the config files several times and can't find anything wrong. If you have suggestions what to look for in the database, they would be welcome as well.

Or is the config correct, and the fact that I can't ping my instance is caused by something else? (but how is a packet supposed to go to the instance without NAT??)

Below: No NAT. The router's IP is, the floating IP is - at least that has been configured.

Below: Strange OVS config. Note that br-int contains the qg-yyyy interface, which I would expect to be plugged into br-ex.
