I am having my openstack kilo configuration with three nodes controller+network+compute. I am able to launch vm instance and allocate the network. Now I want to use load balancer in this architecture. In the openstack docs it is not mentioned for three node architecture. So If anyone can please help me with the correct document where I can find how to do this?

load balancer is used when you have more than one instance of same type, ie: more than one controller then load can be distributed among the multiple controllers, with one controller the requests will be pointed to same controller then there is no point for load balancer

When installing neutron-lbaas in Controller Node (Ubuntu 14.04.3), i got this error: "E: Unable to locate package neutron-lbaas". Seems the package doesn't exist in Ubuntu repos anymore.
