Chapter 20. Configuring Network Plugins

The director includes environment files to help configure third-party network plugins:

20.1. Fujitsu Converged Fabric (C-Fabric)

You can enable the Fujitsu Converged Fabric (C-Fabric) plugin using the environment file located at /usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/environments/neutron-ml2-fujitsu-cfab.yaml.

  1. Copy the environment file to your templates subdirectory:

    $ cp /usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/environments/neutron-ml2-fujitsu-cfab.yaml /home/stack/templates/
  2. Edit the resource_registry to use an absolute path:

    resource_registry:
      OS::TripleO::Services::NeutronML2FujitsuCfab: /usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/puppet/services/neutron-plugin-ml2-fujitsu-cfab.yaml
  3. Review the parameter_defaults in /home/stack/templates/neutron-ml2-fujitsu-cfab.yaml:

    • NeutronFujitsuCfabAddress - The telnet IP address of the C-Fabric. (string)
    • NeutronFujitsuCfabUserName - The C-Fabric username to use. (string)
    • NeutronFujitsuCfabPassword - The password of the C-Fabric user account. (string)
    • NeutronFujitsuCfabPhysicalNetworks - List of <physical_network>:<vfab_id> tuples that specify physical_network names and their corresponding vfab IDs. (comma_delimited_list)
    • NeutronFujitsuCfabSharePprofile - Determines whether to share a C-Fabric pprofile among neutron ports that use the same VLAN ID. (boolean)
    • NeutronFujitsuCfabPprofilePrefix - The prefix string for pprofile name. (string)
    • NeutronFujitsuCfabSaveConfig - Determines whether to save the configuration. (boolean)
  4. To apply the template to your deployment, include the environment file in the openstack overcloud deploy command. For example:

    $ openstack overcloud deploy --templates -e /home/stack/templates/neutron-ml2-fujitsu-cfab.yaml [OTHER OPTIONS] ...

20.2. Fujitsu FOS Switch

You can enable the Fujitsu FOS Switch plugin using the environment file located at /usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/environments/neutron-ml2-fujitsu-fossw.yaml.

  1. Copy the environment file to your templates subdirectory:

    $ cp /usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/environments/neutron-ml2-fujitsu-fossw.yaml /home/stack/templates/
  2. Edit the resource_registry to use an absolute path:

    resource_registry:
      OS::TripleO::Services::NeutronML2FujitsuFossw: /usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/puppet/services/neutron-plugin-ml2-fujitsu-fossw.yaml
  3. Review the parameter_defaults in /home/stack/templates/neutron-ml2-fujitsu-fossw.yaml:

    • NeutronFujitsuFosswIps - The IP addresses of all FOS switches. (comma_delimited_list)
    • NeutronFujitsuFosswUserName - The FOS username to use. (string)
    • NeutronFujitsuFosswPassword - The password of the FOS user account. (string)
    • NeutronFujitsuFosswPort - The port number to use for the SSH connection. (number)
    • NeutronFujitsuFosswTimeout - The timeout period of the SSH connection. (number)
    • NeutronFujitsuFosswUdpDestPort - The port number of the VXLAN UDP destination on the FOS switches. (number)
    • NeutronFujitsuFosswOvsdbVlanidRangeMin - The minimum VLAN ID in the range that is used for binding VNI and physical port. (number)
    • NeutronFujitsuFosswOvsdbPort - The port number for the OVSDB server on the FOS switches. (number)
  4. To apply the template to your deployment, include the environment file in the openstack overcloud deploy command. For example:

    $ openstack overcloud deploy --templates -e /home/stack/templates/neutron-ml2-fujitsu-fossw.yaml [OTHER OPTIONS] ...
