Bare Metal Networking Support

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will cover two aspects of improving bare metal support within Quantum: Additional VLAN support and PXE DHCP.

This session will include the following subject(s):

bare metal HA PXE dhcp-agent support:

Bare metal machines need PXE fields set in DHCP to provision properly. We currently have someone working on that, but only at the minimum set of functionality - we hope to have that landed before the summit.

However, to be production ready, having active-active DHCP agents would be much better.

In this session we would work though all the required changes to run quantum-dhcp-agent on multiple nodes (for the same network) concurrently.

The linked blueprint is for the initial work.

Bare Metal VLAN network support:

This session will cover several aspects of bare metal and Quantum.

VLAN network:

With bare metal nova we cannot add or remove ethernet cards in response to user network requests. We can however give nodes access to additional L2 networks using VLANs.

For triple-o, running openstack on openstack, we want VLANs as well to partition operator and tenant traffic more thoroughly.

In both cases we need to be able to hand information to the instance which will be booting and have only native-VLAN access [but that is sufficient to access the metadata service].

In this session we will discuss the available options and decide on the route forward.

HA PXE dhcp-agent:
Bare metal machines need PXE fields set in DHCP to provision properly. We currently have someone working on that, but only at the minimum set of functionality - we hope to have that landed before the summit.

However, to be production ready, having active-active DHCP agents would be much better.
