Description Nenad Peric 2017-03-01 16:46:05 UTC
Description of problem:

When trying to create an external network for a project, the creation fails with the Error: Failed to create network.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Go to Admin -> Networks -> Create Network
Fill in the fields, but leave the "Physical Network" as the offered "default" (which is invalid in the default OSP configuration)
Select the Shared and External Network checkboxes

Actual results:

The network is not created. 
An error is displayed but is not very helpful.

Expected results:

Ideally, the defaults presented by UI should align with the defaults of the OSP installation, and offer a proper entry in the forms.

If a wrong entry is given for the Physical Network, a more descriptive message would be helpful.
If the error message of the command, cannot be exposed, some advice can be given as to where the problem should be looked for, or which logs might have this information. 

Alternativelly, the form could have a tooltip saying where the valid value to "Physical Network" should come from (in this case the default is set in /etc/neutron/plugins/ml2/ml2_conf.ini. 

Additional info:

Comment 1 Beth White 2017-06-22 10:27:02 UTC
There is now a patch in review upstream. The solution we have come to is to remove the default value altogether and improve the tooltip information to include information for where to find and change physical network details to reduce confusion.

Comment 2 Beth White 2017-07-10 12:34:29 UTC
Due to there being multiple locations where the physical network details can be found depending on the plugin being used, ML2 being just one of many, the tooltip message has been amended to explain that physical networks are defined in your neutron deployment.

Comment 5 Radomir Dopieralski 2017-10-03 22:00:00 UTC
As per comment #2, there is no default value now, and the tooltip contains detailed explanation.
