Hi Jake,

Regarding lbaas in grizzly working on RHEL/Centos - it may be problematic
as host operation system must support network namespaces.
If you do have support for network namespaces then you need to do the
following steps to setup lbaas service in quantum:

1) specify lbaas plugin in quantum.conf:
service_plugins= lbaas_plugin_classpath.
check quantum/plugins/services/agent_loadbalancer/plugin.py for correct
path as currently the name and path has changed.

2) to enable lbaas service in horizon you need to do the following:
add the following piece of code
to horizon/openstack_dashboard/local/local_settings.py :

    'enable_lb': False

3) start quantum-lbaas-agent on the host providing quantum.conf and
lbaas-agent.ini. lbaas-agent.ini should reflect core plugin configuration
(should have proper interface driver)

Note that if host os has no namespace support, all of above will work (e.g.
REST API will be functional), but you would not be able to deploy
loadbalancer as lbaas agent can only work with namespaces.
