I am installing the Juno release and at the end of the Neutron installation (page 72), the manual provides a graphic with four agents running on the Network node. However, when I run the "neutron agent-list" I have 2 agents on the network node and 2 on the control node, openvswitch & DHCP agents are on the control node.
Will this create any issues during the rest of the installation or operational issues later on? If so, how would I correct this issue?

what is the output of neutron agent-list from controller node? It will give you all the neutron agents along with the host information.

In basic setup , all four agents should run in network node and Open vSwitch agent should run in compute node. so there will be total 5 agent in the output of neutron agent-list

thanks for the reply. when I run neutron agent-list on the control node, I get the following;

DHCP Agent - Control Open vSwitch agent - Control Open vSwitch agent - Compute-1 (but not compute 2-4) Metadata-agent - Control Metadata-agent - Network L3-agent - Network

How you are installing openstack?

For networking module, below setup will work.

  1. Control - Neutron server
  2. Network - DHCP Agent, Open vSwitch agent,Metadata-agent, L3-agent
  3. Compute - Open vSwitch agent (one instance should run in each compute node)

verify whether compute 2-4 is having Open vSwitch agent or not. Also install dhcp agent and metadata agent in network node. Remove the DHCP agent and Metadata agent from Control.

It's not mandatory that you can't install DHCP and metadata agent in control but if you have network node, then you can segregate network service.

Hope, it make sense
