Bug Description

I'm trying to test OpenStack Designate playbook and found that Neutron need to be configured according to So this need to be done for fully working Designate.

For now the workaround would be to use the neutron.conf config override to enable this. It'd be ideal to have this automatically wired though.

I tried to use this override as per the documented example. added designate section in neutron.conf but it is not working . neutron retruns an error neutron.db.dns_db DNSDomainNotFound: Domain not found in the external DNS service. I suspect I am going wrong somewhere in the designate section under neutron.conf. the detail description is here

Any help is highly appreciated .

It looks like the config override worked correctly in terms of modifying your neutron.conf. The ongoing difficulties don't seem to be related to the bug. I commented on your question.

I've just tried this and it appears that os-neutron-install.yml would fail as designate variables would not exist in it's play.
You should add designate variables to group_vars/all.yml with this change.

I've opened a bug in Neutron:

However, as it is still not fixed, should I supply the working configuration patch, or wait until neutron fixes the problem?

    Add [designate] section in neutron.conf

    If neutron_designate_enabled variable is true,
    this will enable the [designate] section and all needed configuration.
