Hi all!

I'm new in the OpenStack world!

I've a doubt: I'm trying to install OpenStack Mitaka (controller, network, compute), but I don't know which file I have to configure in /neutron/plugins/ml2/ between "openvswitch_agent.ini" and "ml2_agent.ini".

How can I set OpenStack in order to use a specified file between "openvswitch_agent.ini" and "ml2_agent.ini" ?

Aren't equivalent?

Thank you very much! Ale

Each file is responsible for their respective plugins or agents. Over the last few years there have been a lot of changes in where configuration options were defined, but the preferred method is that openvswitch-agent-related options go in openvswitch_agent.ini, and general ML2 config options go in ml2_conf.ini. There may seem to be some overlap between them, but it is all necessary.
