While setting up a neutron plugin (like ovswitch, mellanox etc), we need to specify plugin name in /etc/neutron/neutron.conf (on the neutron server node) as follows:

core_plugin = neutron.plugins.mlnx.mlnx_plugin.MellanoxEswitchPlugin

My query is:
Is there a way to specify and use multiple plugins at the same time?

I would like to use two plugins at same time to make use of exclusive features in NIC cards from 2 vendors. Both cards will be installed on same compute node.

I had posted this query on openstack mailing list as well. I was advised to explore ML2 as it might make it possible. Still, it would be great to hear from someone who has tried this kind of setup.

@koolhead17: Please keep this question open as I am yet to get a response from someone who has tried this kind of setup. I normally post my openstack queries on both ask.openstack and the mailing list for max visibility. Is this approach not correct? Thanks!

@nishant80 I would suggest use one place instead posting t two places. Since it was posted in the list & core developer so i closed it :) Let me know if you want me to open it fir you again?
