To enable the neutron-lbaas dashboard:

1. Enable the dashboard in the Horizon configuration file in all controller nodes:
File: /var/lib/config-data/puppet-generated/horizon/etc/openstack-dashboard/local_settings

    'enable_distributed_router': False,
    'enable_firewall': False,
    'enable_ha_router': False,
    'enable_lb': True, <----------

2. Restart the horizon container:
  # docker restart horizon
A new "Load Balancers" tab will appear under the "Network" menu. The URL is http://<controller-vip>/dashboard/project/ngloadbalancersv2

Description ojanas 2018-05-02 09:59:07 UTC
Description of problem:

One part of enabling the LbaaS v2 administration in horizon is installing a package openstack-neutron-lbaas-ui

As I have confirmed, in a OSP 12 lab, the package is missing in the horizon container. The problem about this is the following:

Assuming it is possible to get the package within the container, you would need to restart the httpd to take effect of the package. Since the httpd is PID 1 of the container, if you restart it, the container is killed and created again. Regarding the container is created / started again from the original image the package is not in the container anymore.

So, I think the package should probably be included in the horizon docker image.

Actual results:

The package openstack-neutron-lbaas-ui is not in the horizon container thus it is not possible to enable LBaaS in horizon 

Expected results:

The package is available in the container somehow.

Comment 1 Carlos Goncalves 2018-05-02 22:39:04 UTC
The openstack-neutron-lbaas-ui package is installed in the horizon container:

[root@controller-0 heat-admin]# docker exec -ti horizon rpm -q openstack-neutron-lbaas-ui

The dashboard is enabled in kolla by tripleo-heat-templates upstream [1][2]. The reason why the dashboard is not enabled in OSP 12 is due to a downstream-only patch that prevented the dashboard from being enabled to resolve rhbz #1514412 [3]. While the reason for disabling the fwaas dashboard was justified, I do not understand at this moment why it was also necessary to disable the lbaas dashboard. I will reach out to the author of that patch to clarify.
