Previously, the OpenStack Networking (Neutron) integration supported both the Linux Bridge and Open vSwitch plug-ins. Since Open vSwitch is the recommended plug-in to use with Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform and it offers feature parity with Linux Bridge, the Linux Bridge plug-in is dropped from the integration.

Description Martin Pavlik 2014-05-28 11:01:28 UTC
Description of problem:

we need to drop Linux bridge plugin support for neutron integration, since Linux bridge is officially not supported in RHOS

Comment 1 Nir Yechiel 2014-05-29 10:27:59 UTC
Hi Moti,

Can you elaborate what is the work that required here? Is this feasible for 3.5?

It mostly requires deleting code from the engine that deals with linux-bridge. We'd probably like to depracate on of the code in ovirt-host-deploy as well.

It should be feasiable for 3.5.

Verified in 3.5.0-0.0.master.20140715172116.git4687dc1.el6

Comment 4 Nir Yechiel 2014-11-30 10:14:38 UTC
Linux Bridge is supported in RHEL OSP, but OVS is the recommended (and more tested) one. Rephrasing the doc text.
