Ironic multitenant networking and DevStack

Ironic multitenant networking and DevStack

This guide will walk you through using OpenStack Ironic/Neutron with the ML2 networking-generic-switch plugin.

Using VMs as baremetal servers

This scenario shows how to setup Devstack to use Ironic/Neutron integration with VMs as baremetal servers and ML2 networking-generic-switch that interacts with OVS.

DevStack Configuration

The following is local.conf that will setup Devstack with 3 VMs that are registered in ironic. networking-generic-switch driver will be installed and configured in Neutron.

[[local|localrc]]

# Configure ironic from ironic devstack plugin.
enable_plugin ironic https://git.openstack.org/openstack/ironic

# Install networking-generic-switch Neutron ML2 driver that interacts with OVS
