Why would you like to combine VNF with Openstack without Tacker. Tacker provides useful functionality on top of Openstack to Orchestrate the VNF's. Its based on ETSI MANO architectural framework. Tacker is a generic VNFM (Virtual Network Fucntion Manager) and NFVO (Network Function Virtualization Orchestrator) to deploy and operate Network services.

Your question is not really clear as to what is the end goal and what are you trying to acheive here

Thank u for your reply, I already installed OpenStack liberty. Is it possible to install on top of it? If it supports, please suggest me in this regard.
