Stein dashboard configuration for networking option 2

asked 2019-05-15 00:15:32 -0600

Hi according to the stein OpenStack installation guide, for dashboard configuration if we have chosen option 1 then we need to disable support for layer-3 networking services. (

If you chose networking option 1, disable support for layer-3 networking services:
        'enable_router': False,
        'enable_quotas': False,
        'enable_distributed_router': False,
        'enable_ha_router': False,
        'enable_lb': False,
        'enable_firewall': False,
        'enable_vpn': False,
       'enable_fip_topology_check': False,

This is what given in the guide.

But I have chosen networking option 2, so should I enable all layer-3 networking services which are told to disable in the above link?


should I leave the default one?

This is what presentby default in the file /etc/openstack-dashboard/local_settings :

    'enable_router': True,
    'enable_quotas': True,
    'enable_ipv6': True,
    'enable_distributed_router': False,
    'enable_ha_router': False,
    'enable_fip_topology_check': True,

You enable these services if you need them:

    'enable_lb': False,
    'enable_firewall': False,
    'enable_vpn': False,

They are higher-level Neutron services, namely Loadbalancer, Firewall and Virtual Private Network. If you don't need them, don't enable them. If you need them, it's not sufficient to enable them in Horizon: They also need to be installed.

My feeling is that you don't need them right now.

what about

 'enable_distributed_router': False,
        'enable_ha_router': False,

should i make them both true for option2?

I suppose they would allow you to create distributed and HA routers using the dashboard. You probably don't need them.
