Description Mark McLoughlin 2011-09-09 11:13:05 UTC
Seeing this error:

(nova): TRACE: Command: sudo FLAGFILE=/etc/nova/nova.conf NETWORK_ID=1 dnsmasq --strict-order --bind-interfaces --interface=br0 --conf-file= --domain=novalocal --pid-file=/var/lib/nova/networks/nova-br0.pid --listen-address= --except-interface=lo --dhcp-range=,static,120s --dhcp-lease-max=256 --dhcp-hostsfile=/var/lib/nova/networks/nova-br0.conf --dhcp-script=/usr/bin/nova-dhcpbridge --leasefile-ro

(nova): TRACE: Stdout: ''
(nova): TRACE: Stderr: '\ndnsmasq: failed to create listening socket for fe80::fc16:3eff:fe1d:632: No such device or address\n'

where this is the IPv6 address on br0:

  $ ip addr show br0
  6: br0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc noqueue state UP 
    link/ether fe:16:3e:1e:1c:31 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet brd scope global br0
    inet6 fe80::fc16:3eff:fe1d:632/64 scope link 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

Comment 1 Mark McLoughlin 2011-09-09 11:30:11 UTC
To reproduce, just restart the network service when there's an instance running - the IPv6 address appears to get added to the bridge when you first start an instance

Comment 2 Mark McLoughlin 2011-09-09 11:38:53 UTC
deleting the IPv6 address with e.g.

 $> ip addr del fe80::fc16:3eff:fe1d:632/64 dev br0

allows the network service to start again

Comment 3 Mark McLoughlin 2011-09-21 13:51:49 UTC
Upstream bug is:


Should be fixed in diablo by:

  a) removing --interface= from the dnsmasq flags because of this:


  b) fixing the ordering of IP address on the bridge so that dnsmasq
     actually sees the requests
