Started instances not receiving IP address through DHCP

This document (7015077) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


SUSE OpenStack Cloud 4


Newly started instances - e.g. after applying Cloud updates and rebooting a node - may not receive an IP address through DHCP and consequently can not be accessed through the network.


As a workaround, deploy another instance which appears to allow the DHCP service to recover and makes the previously deployed instance functional.

A code fix has been submitted through the update channels, so preferred solution is to update nodes to the latest patch level.
