This project tracks the work to integrate the Hyper-V networking with Neutron. This project contains the Hyper-V Neutron Agent Mixin, Security Groups Driver, ML2 Mechanism Driver and the utils modules they use in order to properly bind neutron ports on a Hyper-V host. This project resulted from the neutron core vendor decomposition.

networking-hyperv

This project tracks the work to integrate the Hyper-V networking with Neutron. This project contains the Hyper-V Neutron Agent, Security Groups Driver, and ML2 Mechanism Driver, which are used to properly bind neutron ports on a Hyper-V host.

This project resulted from the neutron core vendor decomposition.

Supports Python 2.7, Python 3.3, Python 3.4, and Python 3.5.

How to Install

Run the following command to install the agent on the system:

C:\networking-hyperv> python setup.py install

To use the neutron-hyperv-agent, the Neutron Controller will have to be properly configured. For this, the config option core_plugin in the /etc/neutron/neutron.conf file must be set as follows:

core_plugin = neutron.plugins.ml2.plugin.Ml2Plugin

Additionally, hyperv will have to be added as a mechanism driver in the /etc/neutron/plugins/ml2/ml2_conf.ini configuration file:

mechanism_drivers = openvswitch,hyperv

In order for these changes to take effect, the neutron-server service will have to be restarted.

Finally, make sure the tenant_network_types field contains network types supported by Hyper-V: local, flat, vlan, gre.

Tests

You will have to install the test dependencies first to be able to run the tests.

C:\networking-hyperv> pip install -r requirements.txt
C:\networking-hyperv> pip install -r test-requirements.txt

You can run the unit tests with the following command.

C:\networking-hyperv> nosetests networking_hyperv\tests
