Neutron cannot operate using Vmware's standard or distributed switches.

When implementing Vmware with OpenStack you can choose 2 possible networking ways:

  • Use nova network, which is not recommended for Production use.
  • Use Neutron with the VMware NSX plugin.

The Neutron plugin must be compatible with Nova hypervisor chosen.
