Hi Edgar,

Appreciate your quick reply, I have deployed neutron-server, ovs, ml2, l3
and dhcp on neutron node and configured my neutron node as endpoint, and my
compute node just running ovs and dhcp will this work?  am getting vif
"unable to create virtual interface" errors while spinning up instances.

I have tested previously with just 2 nodes controller and compute node
using packstack and worked fine. I am unable to figure out what is the
manual configuration I need to at controller/neutron/compute end to make
VLANs work using ml2 plugin
