Create the integration bridges (these are used for VM traffic management and layer 3 external networking)
$> sudo ovs-vsctl add-br br-int $> sudo ovs-vsctl add-br br-ex
Configure quantum-server to use the openvswitch Please note that this will create a database:
$> sudo quantum-server-setup --plugin openvswitch
Enable and start the quantum-server:
$> sudo systemctl enable quantum-server.service $> sudo systemctl start quantum-server.service
Enable and start the layer 2 agent:
$> sudo systemctl enable quantum-openvswitch-agent.service $> sudo systemctl start quantum-openvswitch-agent.service
Configure the DHCP service:
$> sudo quantum-dhcp-setup --plugin openvswitch
Enable and start the DHCP agent:
$> sudo systemctl enable quantum-dhcp-agent.service $> sudo systemctl start quantum-dhcp-agent.service
Configure the L3 service:
$> sudo quantum-l3-setup --plugin openvswitch
Enable and start the L3 agent:
$> sudo systemctl enable quantum-l3-agent.service $> sudo systemctl start quantum-l3-agent.service
You are done setting up the Quantum service!
