FloatingIP cannot be bound to tenant

Asked by Roy on 2012-10-26

I have a single node ubuntu 12.10 folsom/quantum/vlan setup.
I can successfully deploy images via horizon, and access then using the vcn window,however the issue I am having is trying to network my dual nic server to support floatingips.
I have followed many exmples, and all goes well until I tyr to associate the floating ip.
I get the below output;
 Bad floatingip request: Port 936ff0c6-1d22-4a77-bc3f-92b1e3aaea16 is associated with a different tenant than Floating IP 667fafd9-ea48-4358-856d-b716849d12d9 and therefore cannot be bound.

Any suggestions or guides that can help get me out of the weeds and back on track ....

it seems like the floating IP is owned by a tenant that is different than the owner of the port, which is not allowed for security purposes (after all, one tenant can't map a floating ip to another tenant's port).

what I would do is run:

quantum port-show 936ff0c6-1d22-4a77-bc3f-92b1e3aaea16

quantum floatingip-show 667fafd9-ea48-4358-856d-b716849d12d9

The error message implies that these are owned by different tenants. You need to create a floating IP with the same tenant as a port to be able to map that floating IP to the port.

One reason because of the floating IP is owned by a tenant that is different than the owner of the port can be related with this bug fixed:
