Floating IP still accessible after returned to pool

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We have 3 controllers managed by pacemaker. Neutron uses VRRP. I created a test instance on 30 April in tenant id - 91e0d3f48ef2414bac3ca491feb66a3d
  • I assigned a floating ip - xx.xx.xx.xx
  • I terminated the instance and deallocated the floating ip from the project.
  • As expected the floating IP now does not appear in the neutron port-list, the qrouter namespaces, or the nova list. But I can still ssh to the floating ip and ping the ip externally.
