[Openstack] Neutron Installation: support request

Hi Edgard,

Thanks again for your email

Just n feedback and, I hope, a question of general interest:
Among the guides available at the URL you sent:
there is in my opinion at least one guide not updated, and in this moment not fully exploitable, and unfortunately it's also the most interesting one, with the Nicira NVP Plugin:

In fact the guide do assume that a Nicira NVP cluster, node and network are available (with all the nicira stuff already working, like a NVP controller, the transport zone UUID already settled up etc etc)

Unfortunately if you look at the nicira web site you are now redirected to WMVare web site, and I could not find any available download link for all NICIRA NVP stuff (controller and whatsoever), I guess all this has become commercial software...so, no more practically available for tests

Can anyone confirm or deny this? Thanks in advance for any info

Best Regards

This guide is pretty good:


Be aware of some pull requests (one is mine) to fix a couple of issues, specially on keystone configuration.

Subject: [Openstack] Neutron Installation: support request

Hi All,

I'm an Openstack "newbbie", and my actual target is to get an openstack instance WITH Neutron(/quantum)  ups and running

I wanted to try to get this using one single server but without using devstack:I already settled up a complete and working Openstack grizzly Installation and I've been playing a little bit with "common" features including using API


I saw in the doc (http://docs.openstack.org/trunk/openstack-network/admin/content/nova_with_neutron.html) that I HAVE FIRST TO UNINSTALL NOVA-NETWORK, then I read that there are incompatibility between some plugin and the L3 layer (http://docs.openstack.org/trunk/openstack-network/admin/content/install_neutron-l3.html).
COULD ANYONE PROVIDE ME A NEWBBIE STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO CORRECTLY UNINSTALL NOVA-NETWORK AND INSTALL A NEUTRON SERVER?... I would prefer Neutron with an Openflow compliant plugin (I guess Nicira NVP, Ryu, NEC OPenFlw or Big Swoitch should be fine), but for the first tests  even the standard open vSwitch plugin could be  fine

Thanks in advance for any contribution

Best Regards
