Configuring the Elastic Virtual Switch

After installation completes and the system is rebooted, you must configure the Elastic Virtual Switch (EVS). EVS enables you to create, configure, and monitor virtual switches that span physical servers and connects VMs that are part of the same EVS. For more information about EVS, refer to Chapter 5, About Elastic Virtual Switches, in Managing Network Virtualization and Network Resources in Oracle Solaris 11.2 .

A script is provided to automate EVS configuration. Run the script using the following command:

# /usr/demo/openstack/

This script performs the following configuration:

  • Creates Secure Shell (SSH) keys for all required users such as the root, evsuser, and neutron UNIX users and appends those public keys to the /var/user/evsuser/.ssh/authorized_keys file for the evsuser user.

  • Configures EVS.

  • Enables the neutron-server:default and neutron-dhcp-agent:default SMF services.

  • Specifies which virtual LAN technology to use (VLAN or VXLAN) and the corresponding IDs or segments.
