Subject RE: Problem Releasing of Previously Allocated IP Address
Date Thu, 12 May 2016 14:21:24 GMT
Router vm gets the same ip address even after destroying and recreating it. Since CS does not
have a mechanism to notify the router vm after for existing guest vms it won't change the
IP address. ASAIK the IP will be released only after deleting that network.

Subject: Problem Releasing of Previously Allocated IP Address

I have setup of advanced networking with security groups enabled. Yesterday i destroyed and
restarted router-vm and after that i noticed that from the CloudStack dashboard on Shared
Network IP's there is one more extra ip address allocated then its expected.

I checked mysql db (select * from user_ip_address where state="Allocated";) to see which ip
addresses are allocated and i noticed that there is an ip address like x.x.x.5 is allocated
but its not used by any vm or systemvm's.

After that i check management server log and i noticed that this ip is high probably router
vm's previous ip address. Because on management server log i noticed lines like below:

2016-05-11 16:54:54,374 DEBUG [c.c.a.t.Request]
(Work-Job-Executor-116:ctx-19aae9a4 job-1302/job-1303 ctx-eb95bef0)
(logid:7f64e204) Seq 10-1563030545674275235: Sending  { Cmd , MgmtId:
345050167520, via: 10(kvma16), Ver: v1, Flags: 100011, [{"":{"vmMac":"06:49:d6:00:00:03","vmIpAddress":"x.x.x.4","vmName":"win10CreateTemp444","defaultRouter":"x.x.x.1","defaultDns":"x.x.x.5","duid":"00:00:00:00:00:00:xx:00:00:03","isDefault":true,"executeInSequence":false,"accessDetails":{"":"Advanced","router.guest.ip":"x.x.x.15","router.ip":"","":"r-91-VM"},"wait":0}}] }

So the suspicious ip address is written in "defaultDns":"x.x.x.5" field and its not correct.
I am not currently using dhcp addresses which CloudStack provides but 1 of my ip addresses
are gone :)

So why this could happen is this be a bug?

I also checked logs that defaultDns entry is sometimes correct routervm
ip(x.x.x.15) and sometimes old router vm's ip (x.x.x.5).
