Chapter 5. Creating Networks with Neutron

In the previous chapter, you laid down the virtual switching infrastructure that will support cloud networking features moving forward. In this chapter, you will build OpenStack resources on top of this foundation. I will guide you through the following tasks:

  • Creating networks and subnets

  • Attaching instances to networks

  • Demonstrating DHCP and metadata services

Three major Neutron resources, networks, subnets, and ports were introduced in Chapter 3, Installing Neutron. The relationship between these resources and instances, DHCP, and metadata services can be seen in the following sections.
