I can't reproduce this with openstack-django-horizon-2012.2.1 . Could you please report output the version of openstack-dashboard?

using RHEL 6.4
Comment 4 Julie Pichon 2013-02-05 11:08:37 EST
According to the docs, in Folsom, the administrator must use the "nova-manage create-network" command to create a network -> http://docs.openstack.org/folsom/openstack-compute/admin/content/configuring-networking-on-the-compute-node.html. It's not possible to create networks using the client libraries on the CLI (even as a keystone admin), therefore it's not possible to expose it in Horizon either.

It looks like APIs to do so were added later in Grizzly: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/apis-for-nova-manage, https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/tenant-networks. They appear to involve significant changes in Nova and novaclient.

Nova-network is on its way to being deprecated, perhaps as early as the Havana cycle:


I'm not sure if it makes sense to spend effort surfacing nova-network capabilities to the dashboard, when they will be removed soon.
