How to configure DHCP agent when I'm using openvswitch and linux bridge in cloud at the same time

Hi list,

I’m trying to test ML2 functions. It said ML2 “allows multiple mechanism drivers to access same network simultaneously”. So, I configured: 1. Server node: run neutron-server 2. Network node: run dhcp-agent 3. compute node1 : run openvswitch-agent 4. compute node2 : run linux-bridge-agent

All configurations are using physnet1 with vlan mode. But, I can’t figure out what deriver should I use for DHCP agent. Anyone can help me ??

Thanks. -chen

that depends on which l2 agent u are running on network node.

Example of interface_driver option for OVS based plugins(OVS, Ryu, NEC, NVP,


interface_driver = neutron.agent.linux.interface.OVSInterfaceDriver

Name of Open vSwitch bridge to use

ovs_integration_bridge = br-int

Use veth for an OVS interface or not.

Support kernels with limited namespace support

(e.g. RHEL 6.5) so long as ovs_use_veth is set to True.

ovs_use_veth = False

Example of interface_driver option for LinuxBridge

interface_driver = neutron.agent.linux.interface.BridgeInterfaceDriver
