Inconsistent simple_ip_management behavior in Horizon, with Neutron
Last modified: 2015-06-04 17:53:41 EDT
Description of problem:
Neutron does not (yet?) support the mechanism behind simple_ip_management (see e.g. https://bugs.launchpad.net/horizon/+bug/1196541). But it seems Horizon is only checking for support when associating a floating IP, but not when disassociating it. Thus, the behavior is highly inconsistent, if Neutron is used for the Networking and simple_ip_management is on (default).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install OpenStack (e.g. Havana-3) with Neutron
2. Check that HORIZON_CONFIG["simple_ip_management"] is on (default)
3. In Horizon, first associate a floating IP and then disassociate it through the Instances (overview) page.
Association will show the non-simple behavior ("pick your IP") but Disassociation will show simple behavior ("disassociate and release immediately").
Use non-simple in both cases, as long as Neutron doesn't support simple.
As a workaround, HORIZON_CONFIG["simple_ip_management"] can be set to False in /etc/openstack-dashboard/local_settings
