Hi, I have installed openstack havana using packstack. When I look at the neutron-l3-agent process (ps -ef | grep neutron) , I see

python /usr/bin/neutron-l3-agent --log-file /var/log/neutron/l3-agent.log --config-file /usr/share/neutron/neutron-dist.conf --config-file /etc/neutron/neutron.conf

How do I add a new command line option like this --config-file /etc/neutron/fwaas_driver.ini I know I can just update the above command and just add the option but I want the change to be persistent. If I reboot the machine the l3 agent should come up with the new option.

Check the init script for neutron-l3-agent from /etc/init.d/

You can add there new config files. It has an array (from what I remember) where it keeps all config files.

Hi, just for completness: Running Havana on Ubuntu 12.04 /etc/init.d/neutron-l3-agent does not do much and there is no way to configure the parameter there. There is no config file in /etc/default either. Instead, edit /etc/init/neutron-l3-agent.conf as Ubuntu uses upstart.

cheers Mathias
