    Icehouse: Query on mellanox neutron ml2 driver for SR-IOV



      I followed the steps at following link to configure my controller and compute nodes for networking using mellanox neutron ml2 driver:



      I am running neutron server and networking services (openvswitch-agent, dhcp-agent and l3-agent) on the controller node itself.


      The openstack icehouse installation documentation says that openstack-neutron-ml2 and openstack-neutron-openvswitch packages have to be installed on compute nodes. But the mellanox documenation (above link) does talk about installing them on compute node.


      My query is:

      Is it required to install openstack-neutron-ml2 and openstack-neutron-openvswitch packages on compute node? (I just want to setup the SR-IOV VFs for networking)


      I am asking this because I have installed these two packages on compute node. And, I get the following error while running "neutron net-create test_network":

           Request Failed: internal server error while processing your request


      /var/log/neutron/server.log shows this error:

      "Table 'neutron.ipallocationpools' doesn't exist"

      I am wondering if this is happening because I installed two additional packages on my compute node.
