Hi guys,
I have download "Rack-on-a-Laptop" (L3 to the Host) ovf and build it successfully.
But I want to try build leaf1 and leaf2 by myself, so I download latest cumulus VX, change leaf1, leaf2 to my new empty VX and configuring them.

I follow configuration leaf1, leaf2 in demo environment,
these file are I have configure in new empty VX, all configuration is same with demo environment.


After configuration, I run command "show ip bgp" , get the information about BGP table and it is just look like in demo environment.
But the instance in openstack can not connect to each other, I dont know where is wrong or any configuration I missed,
Can any help me to troubleshoot? Thanks!

Hey, so what troubleshooting have you done here? Is everything else on the network talking to each other? Can the servers talk back and forth?

I solved by reboot all compute nodes.
I run "show ip bgp" and "show ip route bgp" on each machine,  everything look is fine. So I decided to reboot compute nodes and restart Quagga service on VX.
Finally, instance can connect to each other !
