Deprecation Notes

  • Usage of config option firewall_driver in the neutron::plugins::ml2 class is now deprecated and has no effect on the deployment.

Usage of this option in the Neutron server was there just for backward compatibility with old agents which can’t report what driver they are using. Since Newton all Neutron drivers are reporting that in heartbeat messages and there is no need to keep configure this in the neutron server’s side.
