Deploy the Quantum virtual network service and configure Nova to use QuantumManager as its NetworkManager.

Quantum includes several plugins. The linuxbridge and openvswitch plugins are covered here. Feel free to experiment with the cisco, nicira, and/or ryu plugins as well.

These instructions assume the controller node and any compute nodes already have Nova deployed, and the mysql server has already been configured for Nova on the compute node.


Install openstack-quantum on the controller node and any compute nodes:

$ controller> sudo yum install --enablerepo=updates-testing openstack-quantum

If running on Fedora 17, until updated RPM is available, as root edit /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/quantum-2012.1-py2.7.egg-info/requires.txt and change "lxml==2.3" to "lxml>=2.3".

Install one or more plugins on the controller node and any compute nodes:

$> sudo yum install --enablerepo=updates-testing openstack-quantum-linuxbridge
$> sudo yum install --enablerepo=updates-testing openstack-quantum-openvswitch
$> sudo yum install --enablerepo=updates-testing openstack-quantum-cisco
$> sudo yum install --enablerepo=updates-testing openstack-quantum-nicira
$> sudo yum install --enablerepo=updates-testing openstack-quantum-ryu

If you are using the openvswitch plugin, configure openvswitch on all compute nodes (including the controller if it runs nova-compute):

$ node> sudo yum install --enablerepo=updates-testing openvswitch [Note - will become dependency of openstack-quantum-openvswitch]
$ node> sudo systemctl enable openvswitch.service
$ node> sudo systemctl start openvswitch.service
$ node> sudo ovs-vsctl add-br br-int
