nova-compute creates the tap. It communicates with the neutron api to create the logical port, and uses the details it gets back.

Hi Oreily,

Thank for your response, Can you please guide me what part of the code. Actually I want to change the type of the port , So I have changed in file nova/network/ on function

def _create_ovs_vif_cmd(bridge, dev, iface_id, mac, instance_id, interface_type=None): cmd = ['--', '--if-exists', 'del-port', dev, '--', 'add-port', bridge, dev, '--', 'set', 'Interface', dev,"type=fpaphy" 'external-ids:iface-id=%s' % iface_id, 'external-ids:iface-status=active', 'external-ids:attached-mac=%s' % mac, 'external-ids:vm-uuid=%s' % instance_id] if interface_type: cmd += ['type=%s' % interface_type]

return cmd

but When I create instance this the tap is not being added with fpaphy. It seems from somewhere else port is being added. Please guide me.

Thanks devesh
