af-nb-db-2.automation-framework.eqiad.wmflabs has broken network
Closed, ResolvedPublic


For T232429: Create in-cloud, cloud-vps-wide cumin masters I was looking at what hosts are *not* currently responding to cumin. One of them is this host with this error:
ssh: connect to host af-nb-db-2.automation-framework.eqiad.wmflabs port 22: No route to host
Now that's interesting, that should never happen for a host under eqiad.wmflabs, ever. It turns out that the IP in Designate for this is, but openstack-browser reveals something strange about the networking setup on this instance:

It has two internal IP addresses listed, the second of them being It turns out that IP *does* function:

krenair@cloud-cumin-01:~$ ssh
Permission denied (publickey).

(keys are broken there but that's a minor thing in comparison)

Why and how does this host have multiple internal IPs? What should happen if a host ends up with this?

@crusnov is this instance working at all? If not please could you try deleting it, and if needed, re-create?

@aborrero it looks like arturo-k8s-test-3.openstack.eqiad.wmflabs has also got this issue

This is an error that sometimes happens during VM creation -- I think it's something like...

  1. VM is scheduled
  2. IP is allocated by Neutron
  3. Scheduled VM fails to come up (possibly due to a cloudvirt being offline)
  4. VM is rescheduled
  5. IP is allocated by Neutron


As far as I know it only happens to brand new VMs so never damages any actual work in progress. And I don't know if the bug is still present in Newton.

Probably best to just delete the affected VM and wait and see if it happens again.

VM no longer exists.
