The Brocade ML2 drivers have been certified on Redhat and Ubuntu.

  1. Modify the physical switch configuration parameters and the Brocade-specific database configuration in the brocade.ini configuration file.
    % cat /etc/neutron/plugins/brocade/brocade.ini
    
    [SWITCH]
    username = admin
    password = password
    address  = <switch mgmt ip address>
    ostype   = NOS
    
    [DATABASE]
    sql_connection = mysql://root:pass@localhost/brcd_Neutron?charset=utf8
  2. Modify the the ml2_config.ini file to enable the Brocade ML2 driver.
    % cat /etc/neutron/plugins/ml2/ml2_conf.ini
    
           [ml2]
           tenant_network_types = vlan
           type_drivers = local,flat,vlan,gre,vxlan
           mechanism_drivers = openvswitch,brocade
