OpenStack and routing configuration
Hi everyone,

I would like to know if someone has already tried to setup routing
configurations with nova-network.

>From my understanding, nova-network only deals with NAT, but I am
thinking about configurations to directly routes my virtual networks
on my intranet.

I am thinking to develop a new driver for the network manager which
can configure a RIP router (Quagga, ...).

Any feedbacks ?

Thanks.

Regards,
Jérôme

Re: OpenStack and routing configuration [ In reply to ]
We needed to setup something similar when we split out the
nova-network service to a different host than nova-api in cactus, so
that instances could get to the metadata service. It was pretty simple
to make quagga work, but then we needed to add a rule to bypass NAT.
Since this was just for the metadata service, it was a tightly scoped
rule, but in your case, you'll probably want something that covers
your whole intranet. You'll probably still want NAT for internet bound
traffic.

Hi,

You could also take a look to the work proposed during Folsom summit for Quantum L3 APIs.
Quantum has become a core project for OpenStack and our goal is to make it the default network manager for all OpenStack. Actually, in our team we started already some implementation of L3 Plugins for Quagga :-)
However, this is just starting this summit and it will take some time to have it ready.

Thanks,

Edgar
