Re: [Quantum/Neutron] VM cannot get IP address from DHCP server



Please can you look up in the iptables?
Normally on a working openstack host the packets comming in the filter table in the input chain are directed to the nova-network-INPUT which has a rule to accept dhcp packets.
On my setup is something like:
-A INPUT -j nova-network-INPUT

-A nova-network-INPUT -i br100 -p udp -m udp --dport 67 -j ACCEPT

So I think you have to look somewhere else for your issue.

Subject: [Openstack] [Quantum/Neutron] VM cannot get IP address from DHCP server


  We are running OpenStack Folsom on CentOS 6.4.
Quantum-linuxbridge-agent is used.
By default, the Quantum node has the following entries in its /etc/sysconfig/iptables file.

-A INPUT -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-host-prohibited
-A FORWARD -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-host-prohibited

With those two lines, VM cannot get IP address from the DHCP server running on the Quantum node.
More specifically, the first line prevents a VM from getting IP address from DHCP server.
The second line prevents a VM from talking to other VMs and external worlds.
Is there a better way to make the Quantum network work well
than just commenting them out?

I'll appreciate your help.
