How to modify OpenStack network reachability tests during cloud deployment in Red Hat OpenStack Platform 13?

Solution In Progress - Updated -


Note: Customers who wish to implement this solution need to contact Red Hat in order to obtain a support exception. Otherwise, the following procedure is not supported by Red Hat.

OpenStack Director uses ICMP packets during deployment to test if overcloud nodes and the gateway are up. This may be an issue in specific environments where ICMP packets are filtered by (transparent) firewalls or the gateway.

Is it possible to disable all those ping tests or change them to actual tests which would check service reachability? For example telnet or netcat to verify if specific services are listening?
