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.
$> sudo yum install --enablerepo=updates-testing openstack-quantum
Install the relevant plugin:
$> sudo yum install --enablerepo=updates-testing openstack-quantum-openvswitch
$> 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!
