I am using Devstack newton version with CentOS 7 LTS. I wanted the Modular Layer 2 (ml2) Flat Type configuration options as flat_networks = * . (ListOpt) List of physical_network names with which flat networks can be created. I have modified from flat_networks = public to Use * to allow flat networks with arbitrary physical_network names.

But when I stack back it has revert back to public. where can I do this modification to make the permanent.

Any solution please?

Kind Regards, Rahulan

Not sure what you mean with "stack back". To create a a devstack with custom config, you can define settings in the local.conf file, usually at the end:

flat_networks = *
