I need some clarification please on how to run hyper v within an existing nova-network environment:

-Do i need to install the Hyper V Neutron Agent and somehow configure Neutron ovs to use flat network or is Neutron and ovs not needed to plug to the nova flat network ?

-Will nova compute L3 Routing and NAT to public ips work ?

-Can i also use nova compute FlatDHCP manager ?

Any help/pointers much appreciated. /Maged

Unfortunately, we do not support nova-network on Hyper-V, so you will have to use Neutron instead.

As for neutron, yes, you will have to configure your controller's Neutron OVS Agent (q-agt) to use ML2, and of course give it the config file for ML2

etc/neutron/neutron conf:

core_plugin = neutron.plugins.ml2.plugin.Ml2Plugin


# add any network_types you desire, separated with a comma (e.g.: flat,vlan)
tenant_network_types = flat
type_drivers = local,flat,vlan,gre,vxlan
# add the mechanisms for any other plugins / agents you might use.
mechanism_drivers = openvswitch,hyperv

neutron OVS agent with ml2_conf ini:

python /usr/local/bin/neutron-openvswitch-agent --config-file /etc/neutron/neutron.conf --config-file /etc/neutron/plugins/ml2/ml2_conf.ini

Also, nova-network and neutron are mutually exclusive. If you are using one of them, it would be best to disable the other.

If you need any help setting up your environment using Neutron / Hyper-V, let me know!

Best regards,
