The OpenContrail driver for the BGPVPN service plugin is designed to work jointly with the OpenContrail SDN controller (GitHub). The BGP VPN driver can be found in the monolithic Neutron plugin tree 1.
The BGPVPN Contrail driver that was under
has been deprecated in Queens release, and has been completly removed in
Stein release. The documentation below refers to the production ready
Juniper/contrail-neutron-plugin. Be careful, no
migration path is planned.
The OpenContrail driver for the BGPVPN service plugin does not permit specifying route distinguisher.
The OpenContrail driver for the BGPVPN service plugin can create L2 & L3 VPN types for network associations and L3 VPN type for router association.
How to use ?¶
On an Openstack Installation¶
[TBC (package installation + config)]
A devstack plugin can be used to setup an OpenContrail dev/test platform.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:openstack-dev/devstack
Here a proposed devstack
local.conffile which permits to deploy OpenStack keystone, glance, nova, neutron/networking-bgpvpn and compile/install all OpenContrail services and dependencies:

That driver requires OpenContrail release upper or equal to 4.0
