This charm automates the installation of Nexus1K VEM(Virtual
Ethernet Module). For any compute node and selectively network node
VEM can be a subordinate service which provides virtual machine switch
VEM charm installs the Cisco Nexus 1000v virtual switch onto the
VEM charm is designed as a subordinate charm. The aim is to
have this charm installed on the nova-compute and the
In order to use Cisco Openstack solution we would need to
install VEM on the nova-compute and quantum-gateway hosts.
We need to have nova-compute deployed first and we would
have vem charm as subordinate it.
In the config.yaml you can provide general config that will
be common to all VEM hosts in environement. If you need to
configure host-specific config to each host depending on its fqdn,
a mapping file can be provided as a string to the variable called
juju deploy nova-compute
juju deploy --config=config.yaml vem
juju add-relation nova-compute vem
juju set vem mapping="$(cat mapping.yaml)"
Here is a sample of the mapping file:
uplink_profile: phys eth3 profile sys-uplink
uplink_profile: phys eth4 profile sys-uplink
vtep_config: 'virt vtep1-nw2 profile vxlan-vtep mode static address 220.127.116.11 netmask 255.255.0.0 mac 0e:1f:56:cf:82:53'
In this way, the hosts in the mapping mentioned in the mapping file will
get these specific config which will overwrite the generate config provided
in the config.yaml
