Doc Type: Known Issue
Doc Text:
Currently, the OVN load balancer does not open new connections when fetching data from members. The load balancer modifies the destination address and destination port and sends request packets to the members. As a result, it is not possible to define an IPv6 member while using an IPv4 load balancer address and vice versa. There is currently no workaround for this issue.

Description Maciej Józefczyk 2019-07-30 08:11:44 UTC
Description of problem:

While setting mixed IPv6 and IPv4 members in the same pool HTTP request hangs on reaching (SYN send without response) IPv6 member and then falls back to IPv4 member.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
devstack master + master OVN/OVS

How reproducible:
Setup Load_Balancer with 2 members. One will be IPv4, second one IPv6.
Add both to the same Load_Balancer. Create a FIP that points on loadbalancer VIP. Try to reach FIP. Some of requests hangs and falls back to call IPv4 member.

I've already checked if IPv6 member responds at all - yes it works from different host withing the same network.

This scenario is covered by:

Created Load_Balancer:
stack@ovn-octavia-gate:~/devstack$ ovn-nbctl list load_balancer
_uuid               : 27fbcb55-ab47-404f-8b83-f41b7238bcd0
external_ids        : {enabled=True, "listener_a82a9c06-8ab1-44b0-9210-275f734b86f0"="80:pool_16a881a1-a4f1-4789-9329-40ecd9d649c1", lr_ref="neutron-2e7f04f8-fc52-4dc5-aacf-1b027f47b559", ls_refs="{\"neutron-32e5bf63-aff8-4a9e-aeb9-84482bb0017a\": 1, \"neutron-61255b5b-d513-43d5-9ea4-064960e01049\": 1, \"neutron-9e7a6391-e47a-4b89-9739-d4d8fcf02de6\": 1}", "neutron:vip"="", "neutron:vip_fip"="", "neutron:vip_port_id"="5ccc504c-f4bc-4f0e-8ef3-cbaf59c90d04", "pool_16a881a1-a4f1-4789-9329-40ecd9d649c1"="member_9e16bc68-a49a-4d32-96e7-c974104b2090_10.2.1.104:80,member_4b3878a8-8c4a-40af-8512-baf34f9d7b9e_fd77:1457:4cf0:26a8::3d0:80"}
name                : "e6aaf4f3-fdcc-4325-a9f4-6fe3a03c7bc9"
protocol            : tcp
vips                : {""=",fd77:1457:4cf0:26a8::3d0:80", ""=",fd77:1457:4cf0:26a8::3d0:80"}

Actual results:
IPv6 member is not reachable via LB.

Expected results:
IPv6 member responds.
