we are in the phase of moving our windows servers to openstack. and the most simple method is to take backup of the physical servers data and re-install every thing from scratch. But this method will take very long time. is there any alternative? for example, taking raw image of the physical server. can you provide full guide of the migration process.

2015-02-01 01:45:56 -0600 asked a question allocate specific floating ip for tenant

Hi, I have class C sub-net for the public network. And, I want to only allowed tenant to use specific public IPs. I know how to limit the number of the floating IPs for each tenant using quotas, Although quotas does not allowed me to restrict the users to only use specific range of floating ips. Any idea how to set custom range of floating IPs for each tenant?

2014-12-15 06:04:52 -0600 asked a question Add compute node on different location

We have small OpenStack environment in location A. And we are thinking about adding only compute node on different location (location B) which must be managed by location A controller. However, instances on the compute (location B) must have different subnet and gateway than instances on location A. My question: Is it possible to do this without adding network node on location B? If it possible how to do it?

lbaas agent should be installed on the network node only, also you need to install HAproxy on the network node.

Problem solved by editing the neutron.conf in both controller and networks nodes.

2014-11-13 01:01:19 -0600 asked a question lbaas Error: Unable to add pool "new-pool".

Hi, After following this guide

The load balancer in enabled in horizon, but when I try to create new pool from horizon I get this error:

Error: Unable to add pool "new-pool".

and the state of the pool is ERROR. Moreover, creating new pool in using the CLI give this error:

#neutron lb-pool-create --lb-method ROUND_ROBIN --name mypool --protocol HTTP --subnet-id 94363597-ac38-4edd-b865-a681ade3ea0d
No eligible backend for pool ca32dd18-7b12-4349-bb37-75d07df707b0 (HTTP 404) (Request-ID: req-0a3d7d5d-3157-49c4-bf9e-10bd9b2d3356)

also when I check the logs files in the network node(/var/log/neutron/lbaas-agent.log) I found nothing the logs are empty. Additionally, I verify that the HAproxy in installed on the network node, but I always get the error message when I try to create pool. do I need to configure the HAproxy? and how to solve this problem?

do I need to install neutron-lbaas-agent on the controller node or just the network-node?

2014-11-12 04:11:20 -0600 asked a question installing lbaas on Juno

Hi there, I was trying to figure out how to configure load balancer on Openstack juno release. but it did not work. for my environment I follow this guide to install 3 node: 1 controller +1 network-node + 1 compute-node. the cluster is working fine I can create instances and networks without problems. the output of the 'neutron agent-list' command is: neutron agent-list +--------------------------------------+--------------------+---------+-------+----------------+---------------------------+ | id | agent_type | host | alive | admin_state_up | binary | +--------------------------------------+--------------------+---------+-------+----------------+---------------------------+ | 533134bb-c9d9-4cdd-a8cc-84e1fe68b051 | Open vSwitch agent | compute | :-) | True | neutron-openvswitch-agent | | 5c43aa10-06fb-43fd-bcdc-44235b8b58df | L3 agent | network | :-) | True | neutron-l3-agent | | bc6bc4c0-cc46-490e-bf66-b447ff52997b | Metadata agent | network | :-) | True | neutron-metadata-agent | | ce387616-d5bd-46d5-8d4e-7aad31de9c51 | Open vSwitch agent | network | :-) | True | neutron-openvswitch-agent | | e5aa4328-e9d7-4a62-82fc-1cf1589488f1 | DHCP agent | network | :-) | True | neutron-dhcp-agent | +--------------------------------------+--------------------+---------+-------+----------------+---------------------------+

However, When I try to install lbaas following this guide : 1- I edit the /etc/neutron/neutron.conf in the controller node and the network node by adding this line:

service_plugins =

2- install this: sudo apt-get install neutron-lbaas-agent haproxy on the network node.

3- do this on the network node.

sudo mkdir -p /etc/neutron/plugins/services/agent_loadbalancer/
sudo cp /etc/neutron/lbaas_agent.ini /etc/neutron/plugins/services/agent_loadbalancer/lbaas_agent.ini

4- enable lbaas in horizon then restart apaches and all the network services.

However, after applying all this setting, when I run 'neutron agent-list' I get this error:

neutron agent-list
Unable to establish connection to http://controller:9696/v2.0/agents.json

look like enabling load balancer cause cause this problem. also, I try this guide without any luck : can you please help me to install load balancer in openstack juno

Hi their, I am just curious about how Open Stack work. If I go to my openstack mysql database and set the value of one of the running instances as "deleted" will this release the resource and delete the the space used by this instance? I know if I deleted from mysql database the instance will be deleted from horizon but I am not sure if this action will remove the disk space used by the deleted instance.
