Would this be a reason that if we spin up a neutron router the interface is always down and we cannot bring it up? We're a little caught on the networking side of things.
linux bridge supprot VRRP HA routering
but ovs syle dvr where each compute node does the routing appears to be unsupported.
i tought we added dvr to linux bridge as part of the vlan support in kilo
or at least proposed at one point but the docs dont reference it.
looking at the agent config
that option does not exist "enable_distributed_routing"
are generic neuton toplevl option but i think that just sets the default values so they shoudl also not be set in the agent config.
dvr is implemented by the l3 agent however and is contold by
i had though that if you enable that and deploy the l3 agent on each of the compute nodes with linux bridge
it would still work after all the routeing is impleted by the kernel not ovs when usign dvr so the same namepace approch shoudl work.
but i guess that was never implemnted so your only otpion with linux bridge would he to use ha routers not dvr routers
the main deltaa is for ha routers all routing happnes on the network nodes/contoler where the l3 agent is running rahter then
beign distibuted across all compute nodes.
