[Openstack-operators] Openstack Manual install with nova-network

Hi Vishal,

Thank for the quick response, the python-neutronclient is a dependency for the dashboard installation, when I try to remove it, it says it will remove the dashboard installation as well.
Do you know of a way to force the openstack not to use the neutron client, but to use the nova-network?
And for your other question, in the nova.conf – network_api_class = nova.network.api.API

Looking at the "exception location" seems like you have python-neutronclient installed. Would you please check below:
1) Use rpm -qa (REL based) or dpkg -l (debian based) to look for the package python-neutronclient. If so please remove python client for neutron.
2) What is value of parameter network_api_class in nova.conf on compute node? Please check if it is set correctly.

Hi guys,

I have a 2 node(1 controller + 1 compute nodes) architecture that I installed manually, all of my compute services, including nova network, are on the compute node.
I tried logging to the dashboard but I received this message:

ConnectionFailed at /admin/
Connection to neutron failed: Maximum attempts reached
Request Method:

Django Version:


Exception Type:


Exception Value:

Connection to neutron failed: Maximum attempts reached

Exception Location:

/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/neutronclient/v2_0/client.py in retry_request, line 1228

I don’t even have a neutron client or server installed, and I configured my nova.conf to use nova networking.
This is really frustrating, can somebody please assist?
