Hi All,

I am following the guide for centos for installing openstack. I have chosen two separate nodes as controller and compute. It is successful till dashboard. While installing neutron, I am really c onfused by the documentation. It has the following sections in networking. Configuring services and end points for networking on controller. 1. installation on dedicated network node 2. installation on dedicated compute node. 3. Installation on dedicated controller node.

Of the above options , which one should I follow for networking on my two node setup ?

Is it all of the above or any one of the above ?

For your 2 node setup, anytime it references a "neutron controller" or "network node" treat that as your controller node.

Please note, the documentation says to use 3 nodes (1 for dedicated networking) and adapt the guide yourself. Also note that it requires 3 pyhsical NICs for the network node. You can do it with 2 (or even one) but it is not covered in the guide.

I would suggest setting up a dedicated networking node initially until you get your bearings with neutron. Even if you have to setup the networking node in a vm. Neutron can be a pain to setup as it is, try to stick as close to the guide as possible.
