Configuration of OVS and Neutron involves running OVS commands to configure the software switch and a number of configuration files for Neutron. For this section, we are configuring the
network node. We will be using
eth2 for creating Neutron tenant networks and
eth3 for creating an externally routable network.
Ensure that you have a suitable server available for installation of the OpenStack network components. If you are using the accompanying Vagrant environment, this will be the
network node that we will be using.
Ensure that you are logged in to the
network node and it has the required packages in our environment for running OVS and Neutron. If you created this node with Vagrant, you can execute the following command:
vagrant ssh network
