Hi@akhtar,

To solve this error, you can follow the given bellow steps.

  1. Open /etc/nova/nova.conf and lookout for ‘my_ip‘ attribute.

  2. Make sure ‘my_ip‘ contains IP address as value and not hostname or FQDN or localhost. In my case, it was FQDN of the compute node. I changed it to IP address.

  3. Now restart openstack-nova-network service and it should work as expected.

Hope this will help.

Thank You
