Description Alexander Chuzhoy 2015-10-19 18:13:47 EDT
Description of problem:
In RDO, the default network type is GRE. We should change this to VXLAN for several reasons: VXLAN has better performance (20-25% better); NICs with VXLAN offload are more common.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Deploy overcloud with RDO without specifying a network type

Actual results:
GRE is the default

Expected results:
VXLAN should be the default
Comment 1 Mike Burns 2015-10-20 06:53:45 EDT
This is due to python-tripleoclient not having this patch:


It's overriding the default in tripleo-heat-templates.  You can see the default in THT in /usr/share/openstack-tripleo-heat-templates/puppet/controller.yaml

This bug was accidentally moved from POST to MODIFIED via an error in automation, please see mmccune@redhat.com with any questions
Comment 4 Christopher Brown 2017-06-17 13:21:04 EDT
vxlan is now the default so this can be closed.
