Thanks for the reply! I think we may be talking about two different
things however... I'm not looking to release the IP back to the public
pool, I'm just looking to disassociate from a deleted VM when the
instance is terminated. After I terminate the instance, it still shows
as stuck to the deleted instance, which is kind of pointless.
After I disassociate the floating IP via 'neutron
floatingip-disassociate', it releases the IP back to my own allocated IP
list, so I most definitely can re-use that IP for another instance
easily. I agree that if I unallocated it with 'neutron
floatingip-delete', then I may not get it back, but with 'neutron
floatingip-disassociate' I still own it as a user of a project.
Just checking if the decision was made to stop dissociating the floating
IPs upon instance termination after Icehouse, or if it was overlooked in
Thanks for the reply!
