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.


A prerequisite is Keystone. This is important as authentication is done via the Keystone service.

The Quantum client (python-quantumclient) will be used to configure and in part test the installation.

Install openstack-quantum:

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

Install the relevant plugin:


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

Linux Bridge:

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

Configure quantum-server to use the selected plugin. Please note that this will create a database:

$> sudo quantum-server-setup

Enable and start the quantum-server:

$> sudo systemctl enable quantum-server.service
$> sudo systemctl start quantum-server.service

You are done setting up the Quantum service!
