Neutron is the OpenStack component that manages virtual networks. There are many ways of mapping virtual networks to your physical infrastructure. Since OpenStack Stein, Packstack uses OVN as the so-called mechanism driver by default. This is the method by which instances are attached to the network. This driver does not support the Neutron Load Balancer, VPN and Firewall as a Service features.

Furthermore, Packstack's default type driver, which ensures that virtual networks are separated from each other, us Geneve.

In principle, this should only be a problem if you plan to deploy LBaaS, VPNaaS or FWaaS. However, this new setup caused me other headaches, which I fixed by configuring the old Openvswitch mechanism driver and VXLAN type driver.
