Ussuri-only: Network segments are not tried out for allocation

Bug #1940312 reported by Thiago Paiva Brito
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

* High level description: When we get a list of segments to choose from, and the first segment is already allocated, it fails right away returning RetryRequest exception, the the other segments are never tried out.

I explain it a little further on the comments of PatchSet 1 here:

This actually works at master due to a side effect of a refactoring that was done on to randomize the selection of segments, but on stable/ussuri, when not specifying the provider_network_type, we got into a situation where we had segments to allocate in vlan but neutron was allocating vxlan instead.

* Pre-conditions: network_segment_range plugin enabled and several vlan project networks created on the system

* Step-by-step reproduction steps: openstack --os-username 'project1_admin' --os-password '******' --os-project-name project1 --os-auth-url http://keystone.openstack.svc.cluster.local/v3 --os-user-domain-name Default --os-project-domain-name Default --os-identity-api-version 3 --os-interface internal --os-region-name RegionOne network create network11

* Expected output: network created successfully (there was available ranges)

* Actual output: HttpException: 503, Unable to create the network. No tenant network is available for allocation.

* Version:
  ** OpenStack version: stable/ussuri
  ** Linux distro: Centos 7
  ** Deployment: StarlingX Openstack

* Perceived severity: Major - System is usable in some circumstances

You said it is fixed in master by but that patch is only in stable/Wallaby and master. So I think that the same issue is also in Victoria, right?

In fact, the patches that fix that problem (although as a side effect) were already cherry-picked and merged on the stable branches:


Thanks Slawek and Rodolfo for those.
