Attempting to follow (

Where it says...

Add to the /etc/neutron/plugin.ini file these lines:
network_vlan_ranges = physnet1
bridge_mappings = physnet1:br-ex's not clear where to add them. Do I just stick them in at the top of the file?

To clarify, as the tag says, I'm using Icehouse.

Not to diminish the importance of ambiguity in the introductory documentation to the RDO Project, but I'm not entirely sure that it actually makes any difference where these lines go - or, indeed, if you omit them entirely.

UPDATE 04/15/2015
Regarding IceHouse Multinode Deployment for Fedora 20 , please , view :-
In particular, /etc/neutron/plugin.ini



You are using outdated howto. RDO Juno AIO ( packstack --allinone ) will setup ML2&OVS&VXLAN configuration. When done remove router1 && public network , afterwards create public network via Horizon or CLI as you need ( in Horizon select type VXLAN , Segmentation 1005). Next step update ifcfg-br-ex and ifcfg-em1 ( say em1) files Interface name is provided by ifconfig. View
Stop&&Disable NetworkManager, Start&&Enable service network. /etc/neutron/ml2_conf.ini will be automatically created for you. Don't warry about this lines

Outdated howto? It's from the Quickstart page! I'm using Icehouse (edited question to clarify).

OK. See at
These instructions have been tested on a RHEL 6.4 "minimal" install VM attached to the default libvirt network. Make sure all of your repos are set up first:

As far as I know 6.4 is now unsupported in regards of RDO installs. 6.4 required special kernel patch to support namespaces.

Just, clarify are you doing AIO RDO IceHouse install or Multi Node Deployment ?

The following lines:

network_vlan_ranges = physnet1
bridge_mappings = physnet1:br-ex

Should go after [ovs] that is all that is required.

Als makes sure that you have br-ex created in OVS before you restart the openvswitch-agent.

My plugin.ini doesn't have an [ovs] section.

I'm running Icehouse. I think these instructions were written for Icehouse based on my memory of having used them before plus the reference to CentOS6.4 and NBs for CentOS7.
