Description Chaitanya 2016-07-18 06:13:36 UTC
Description of problem:

According to RHOSP 8 documentation, the package name for VMWare NSX plugin is openstack-neutron-vmware: 

However, according to this bug: and this Bug Fix Advisory:, it seems that the package name has changed to python-networking-vmware-nsx which was installed and verified by customer.

But we can see both of these packages are present in RHOSP 7 repositories. Can you confirm that the package name has really changed? If changed, we need to update the package name in this documentation:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Each time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Search for NSX plugin package in RHOSP 7 and RHOSP 8 referring the official documentation 

Actual results:
No package openstack-neutron-vmware is present in RHOSP 8 repository.

Expected results:
Package name should be changed in documentation to python-networking-vmware-nsx which then can be referred by customers to install VMWare NSX plugin

Hi Chaitanya,

Thank you for raising this bug.

The changes to the package name itself should be easy enough, but I am also reaching out to product management to seek clarification of the package naming in OSP 7 to see if any further guidance will be required.

We will provide another update when we are able.

Kind regards,

Assigning to Martin for review.

Martin - all we should need to do here is update the docs for OSP 8 and above to use the new package name.
