I'm trying to run a small OpenStack setup over a few servers hosted in hetzner.de, I'm currently deploying a basic setup to two servers.

All servers are running Ubuntu, they are connected to each other using a LAN, running on 172.16.0.x network. Here's the contents of /etc/network/interfaces on one of the servers:

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static

First server is a controller, which is connected to public internet through eth0 (one IP address is pointing to it, server gets configured using DHCP). The second server is only a networking node and I can't get neutron properly configured on it.

The second server also has two interfaces, eth1 (the LAN) works properly, but eth0 does not allow access to the internet. I believe it might be a routing issue. There's a /28 block pointing to eth0 + a single IP, which can be configured using DHCP. Here's the contents of /etc/network/interfaces on the neutron node:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet manual

From what I've read, it has to be manual to let neutron configure it. I followed the Ubuntu setup guide from OpenStack's official website. Here's the output of ovs-vsctl show:

            Interface br-tun
                type: internal
    ovs_version: "2.0.2"

I ran ovs-vsctl add-br br-ex and ovs-vsctl add-port br-ex eth0. Then I ran this command to add that network to neutron:

neutron subnet-create ext-net --name ext-subnet --allocation-pool start=x.x.x.193,end=x.x.x.206 --disable-dhcp --gateway x.x.x.193 x.x.x.192/28

Here's the output of route -n on the networking node.

╭─route -n                                                                                                   127 ↵

x.x.x.192 U     0      0        0 br-ex   U     0      0        0 eth1

Clearly the routing is invalid, but I'm not sure how it should look like. Any tips on how I should make the networking work?
