Hi, no that was a typo. The error message has the ip address 169.254.169.254 in the http request.

I updated the dhcp.ini and metadata.ini files in the neutron repository and restarted the agents. Openstack network agent list shows dhcp and metadata agents are up and alive. However I still have same issue. If I attach internal network (tenant) it works fine. External network is behind firewall.

next hop for this is the dhcp address assigned to the external network. I have the network dhcp enabled. Also I noticed the external network IP Address is not configured on the instance interface. The eth interface is created but I had to manually configure it.

Bernd; Thanks for your feedback. I Have done all the corrections per your suggestions. I am still getting http://169.254.169.254 request errors during cloud-init only when I attach external interface to an instance. I checked /var/lib/neutron/<network id="">/opts file and I do see the host 169.254.169.</network>

I went through the link you provided. Can you point me to which scenario has the tweaking you mentioned ? Thanks,

Thanks for responding. Yes, I meant the instance is attached to an external/provider network, and not the tenant internal network. I will check the tweaking you mentioned and revert if it worked.

Metadata http request from instance using 169.254.169.254 is failing when only external interface is attached with the following error during initial reboot:

http://254.169.254.169/2009-04-04/metadata/instance-id (http://254.169.254.169/2009-04-04/met...) failed. network unreachable

When I attach an internal network it works fine and cloud-init is successful. I have updated the metadata.ini file, dhcp.ini, and nova.conf files, but same issue.

Openstack version = Queens 1 Controller, same as network node 10 compute hosts. External network is configured as vxlan and it is a flat network.

Let me know if anyone has an input or question on this.

Thanks, Gee
