[Openstack] setup all-in-one testing node

The installation guide sets up two nodes, a controller and a compute node.
The only Neutron component on the compute node is the Linuxbridge agent. It
communicates with other Neutron components via message queue and doesn't
access the database. This is why the guide asks you to remove DB access
information from the configuration.

You are installing an all-in-one cloud, controller and compute components on
the same node. Since you don't follow the installation guide, you can't
expect it to give you all steps in all details. 

In this case, you need the database connection string, because the Neutron
controller components require it. Leave it in.

Subject: [Openstack] setup all-in-one testing node

Hi All,

I'm following the pike installation guide and trying to setup an all-in-one
testing node.

However, I found that neutron controller node needs to configure a database
connection in /etc/neutron/neutron.conf


While neutron compute node suggested to be comment out any database
connection in /etc/neutron/neutron.conf


It's quiet confused to me, any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
