OpenStack Debug VPN connection

Find the VPN server and the relevant router UUID

# get VPN connection ID
openstack vpn ipsec site connection list | grep foo
openstack vpn ipsec site connection list --long | grep <project_id>
 
VPN_CONNECTION_ID=142dc25f-13bb-4fda-b093-edf13df98ed8
openstack vpn ipsec site connection show ${VPN_CONNECTION_ID}
 
VPN_SERVICE_ID=$(openstack vpn ipsec site connection show ${VPN_CONNECTION_ID} -c 'VPN Service' -f value)
openstack vpn service show ${VPN_SERVICE_ID}
 
# get router ID
ROUTER_ID=$(openstack vpn service show ${VPN_SERVICE_ID} -c Router -f value)
echo "ROUTER_ID=${ROUTER_ID}"

Find the ctl Node where the active router is running

openstack port list --device-owner network:router_gateway -f value -c binding_host_id --router ${ROUTER_ID}
 
# OR run on all ctl nodes run
ip netns exec qrouter-<router_id> ip a s

Connect to that ctl node and "jump" in its neutron-l3-agent docker container

ssh ${CONTROL_NODE}
docker exec -u root -ti neutron_l3_agent bash

4. Enable file logging in strongswan configuration

ROUTER_ID=b7ed736e-8f38-4be6-8ce4-644c5c7bfedf
 
cp /var/lib/neutron/ipsec/${ROUTER_ID}/etc/strongswan.d/charon-logging.conf{,.org}
 
sed -i "s|# <filename> {|/var/log/charon-${ROUTER_ID}.log {|g" /var/lib/neutron/ipsec/${ROUTER_ID}/etc/strongswan.d/charon-logging.conf
sed -i "s|# append = yes|append = no|g" /var/lib/neutron/ipsec/${ROUTER_ID}/etc/strongswan.d/charon-logging.conf
sed -i "s|# default = 1|default = 2|g" /var/lib/neutron/ipsec/${ROUTER_ID}/etc/strongswan.d/charon-logging.conf
sed -i "s|# ike_name = no|ike_name = yes|g" /var/lib/neutron/ipsec/${ROUTER_ID}/etc/strongswan.d/charon-logging.conf
sed -i "s|# time_add_ms = no|time_add_ms = yes|g" /var/lib/neutron/ipsec/${ROUTER_ID}/etc/strongswan.d/charon-logging.conf
sed -i "s|# time_format =|time_format = %b %e %T|g" /var/lib/neutron/ipsec/${ROUTER_ID}/etc/strongswan.d/charon-logging.conf
sed -i '0,/# }/s/# }/}/' /var/lib/neutron/ipsec/${ROUTER_ID}/etc/strongswan.d/charon-logging.conf

Restart the strongswan connection

ip netns exec qrouter-${ROUTER_ID} neutron-vpn-netns-wrapper --mount_paths="/etc:/var/lib/neutron/ipsec/${ROUTER_ID}/etc,/var/run:/var/lib/neutron/ipsec/${ROUTER_ID}/var/run" --cmd="ipsec,restart"

Debug VPN logs

# read log inside IP namespace
tail -f /var/log/charon-${ROUTER_ID}.log
 
# read log on crontrol node
ROUTER_ID=b7ed736e-8f38-4be6-8ce4-644c5c7bfedf
tail -f /var/lib/docker/overlay2/*/merged/var/log/charon-${ROUTER_ID}.log

Cleanup

# disable file logging
mv /var/lib/neutron/ipsec/${ROUTER_ID}/etc/strongswan.d/charon-logging.conf{.org,}
 
# restart strongswan again
ip netns exec qrouter-${ROUTER_ID} neutron-vpn-netns-wrapper --mount_paths="/etc:/var/lib/neutron/ipsec/${ROUTER_ID}/etc,/var/run:/var/lib/neutron/ipsec/${ROUTER_ID}/var/run" --cmd="ipsec,restart"
 
# delete logfile
rm /var/log/charon-${ROUTER_ID}.log
