DHCP timeout when creating instances for specific tenants

Hi all,

I wonder if anyone can help shed any light on an odd issue we are seeing 
with only a couple of specific tenants. Basically if they launch an 
instance they are taking about 5 minutes to launch rather than our usual 
30 second or so launch.

We are seeing the following on the instance logs:


Weirdly it only seems to be happening for 1 or 2 new tenants. I have 
tested this on our personal account and a few other customers have 
tested and their instances launch really quickly as expected.

Is there anything specific during the tenant creation that can cause 
this issue? Or are there any logs in nova / neutron I should be looking 
out for that might shed some light?

I haven't seen anything that is obvious. Any help would be much 
appreciated as we are a little stumped at the moment.

Many thanks,
