IPAM Provider (OpenStack)

Overview

Avi Vantage communicates with OpenStack Neutron via APIs to provide IPAM functionality. Currently, DNS services from OpenStack are not supported in this configuration.

Note: This function provides support for cloud providers who host their Virtual Machines (VM)/ instances on OpenStack (for example, Mesos nodes running on OpenStack instances). Therefore, this configuration is irrelevant if you are using OpenStack cloud in Avi Vantage.
