+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1601039 +++

This has nothing to do with NFV. We shouldn't provide this in the template here - Andreas

Andreas -

The yaml files are a direct import from QE. We can not hand edit. Please open an internal bug against an engineering component (I suggest director) to have this removed from the QE source. We can then import the files again.

Hi,

Can we change the QE templates or add a comment indicating that the glance file backend is not needed for NFV deployments? The same with the SSH configuration. Otherwise, the example file makes users configure these parameters, it simply looks as if the params were needed when in reality they have nothing to do with the NFV configuration.

Thanks,

Andreas

Hi,

Please have a look at:

https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_openstack_platform/10/html/network_functions_virtualization_configuration_guide/appe-sample-ovsdpdk-files#annotations:e6a345f6-865f-4abc-9fba-9c628d8fcc64

Section:
B.1.3. network.environment.yaml

The example environment file contains:
 GlanceBackend: 'file'

It also contains:
  SshServerOptions:
    UseDns: 'no'

These should not be there in the examples for NFV deployments. Customers will copy this file and will insert the above two options in their templates, or will at least ask support why these parameters are there. The network-environment.yaml file for our examples should be minimal. 

Sandra McCann from the docs team told me that:
~~~

~~~

Perhaps, we need to change our QE templates and "outsource" these parameters (such as GlanceBackend: 'file' and SshServerOptions into a different .yaml file.

Thanks,

Andreas

Thanks,

Additionally:
'
  # Configure the classname of the firewall driver to use for implementing security groups.
  NeutronOVSFirewallDriver: openvswitch


The openvswitch OVS firewall driver is only tech preview, so we should not include that in our NFV documentation (which should only refer to fully supported components).

This seems specific to NFV, so updating the DFG assignment.
