OpenStack/ML2 Mechanism Driver for UCSM Mitaka/Newton
How to obtain the mechanism driver?
networking-cisco repo is now simultaneously compatible with all Openstack releases starting from Mitaka.
New Features added in Mitaka/Newton
Support for Service Profile Templates
In the previous releases, the UCSM mechanism driver user was asked only to use Service Profiles to configure their UCS Servers. If the servers were configured using Service Profile Templates, the user was asked to dissociate the Service Profile from its Template so that the plugin could modify it. The current version of the mechanism driver, can configure the Service Profile Templates directly and does not require the user to dissociate from the Service Profile Template. The user needs to be aware that modifying the Service Profile template would result in all Service Profiles derived from it to be modified.
Support for VNIC Templates
