Chapter 21. Configuring network plugins

Director includes environment files that you can use when you configure third-party network plugins:

21.1. Fujitsu Converged Fabric (C-Fabric)

You can enable the Fujitsu Converged Fabric (C-Fabric) plugin by 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:

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

21.2. Fujitsu FOS Switch

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

Procedure

  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:

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