I had some errors with the configuration, that's why I couldn't make it work. I followed this neutron https://docs.openstack.org/neutron/queens/admin/deploy-ovs-selfservice.html (guide) for deploying self-service networks with the neutron-openvswitch-agent.

But you have to add the parameter bridge_mappings = provider:br-provider under the [ovs] section in the /etc/neutron/plugins/openvswitch_agent.ini file in order for the instances to be able to connect directly on the provider network.

Thanks for the response! I just deployed the same configuration for my environment as well, using the self service networks as a general networking solution for each project, and provider/external network for some specific networking services that cannot bare the tunneling overhead.

Thanks for the response! The reason to have both networking solutions is that self service networks, although they are necessary for project users in order to create their own networks, they add some overhead to each packet because of the tunnel protocols, and that causes problem for some services.

Hello, in the neutron deployment there are two options, self service and provider networks. Is it possible to use both configurations, connecting some instances on a provider network with a public IP and some instances on a self service network, behind a vrouter?
