47In order to use this mechnism the brocade configuration file needs to be edited with the appropriate
48configuration information:
49
50 % cat /etc/neutron/plugins/ml2/ml2_conf_brocade.ini
51 [switch]
52 username = admin
53 password = password
54 address = <switch mgmt ip address>
55 ostype = NOS
56
57Additionally the brocade mechanism driver needs to be enabled from the ml2 config file:
58
59 % cat /etc/neutron/plugins/ml2/ml2_conf.ini
60
61 [ml2]
62 tenant_network_types = vlan
63 type_drivers = local,flat,vlan,gre,vxlan
