OpenStack Bobcat : Configure Neutron OVN (Network Node)2023/10/24

Configure OpenStack Network Service (Neutron).
This example is based on the environment like follows.
Configure Neutron services with Open Virtual Network (OVN).

Create a user or endpoints and Database for Neutron on Control Node, refer to here.
On the example of the link, Neutron Server (API) is installed on Control Node,
but on this example, Neutron Server is installed on Network Node,
so replace the Endpoints of Neutron to [].
