This is documented at However, I don't think you can change the mechanism driver in an existing cloud. You need to delete the Neutron DB and install Neutron from scratch, or even the entire cloud.

Thank you for your answer, this document i think tha is not very clear, i start a new installation, and when i use the command openstack network agent listi have an error Failed to contact the endpoint at http://controller:9696 for discovery. Fallback to using that endpoint as the base url.

I check the /etc/hosts file and it is ok.

There are other possible causes for not reaching an endpoint. Such as firewalls or Neutron not running.
