Usage   Use this command to create an OpenStack instance on a VNET.

Examples  To create an OpenStack instance, Open-One, on VNET, opvnet, on port 65 as a dedicated service, on storage pool, vry-lrg-str, use the following command:

CLI network-admin@switch > openstack-config-create name Open-One vnet opvnet port 65 dedicated-vnet-service storage-pool vry-lrg-str

To configure Openstack on HA-enabled cluster:

CLI network-admin@switch > openstack-config-create name openstack-name vnet global-vnet port openstack-port vlans vlan-range ha ha-vip ha-vip no-extensions

To configure Openstack on a cluster without HA:

CLI network-admin@switch > openstack-config-create name openstack-name vnet global-vnet port openstack-port vlans vlan-range no-extensions


Informational Note:  The Pluribus Networks Openstack plugin does not currently support extensions. Therefore, you cannot specify extensions when using the openstack-config-create command.
