VMware configuration with Diablo

Asked by Vincent Caron on 2011-08-29

Can you explain how to configure openstack to use an ESX hypervisor.
Before Diablo, we could use nova.network.vmwareapi_net as a network driver.
Since Diablo and the vifs, Compute try to call "_allocate_fixed_ips" but this method does not exist in the VLAN manager.
Which network driver do I need to configure ?
Do I need to wait for the quantum manager ?

That was my mistake, the method '_allocate_fixed_ips' exists in the class 'RPCAllocateFixedIP'.
