Full automatic virtual deployment NO High Availability Mode
-The following command will deploy the SDNVPN scenario in its non-high-availability flavor (note the
-different scenario name for the -s switch). Otherwise it does the same as described above.
- sudo bash ./deploy.sh -b file://<path-to-opnfv-fuel-repo>/config/ -l devel-pipeline -p <your-lab-name> -s os-odl_l2-bgpvpn-noha -i file://<path-to-fuel-iso>

-With -e option the installer does not launch environment deployment, so
-a user can do some modification before the scenario is really deployed.
-Another interesting option is the -f option which deploys the scenario using an existing Fuel host.
-The result of this installation is a fuel sever with the right config for
-BGPVPN. Now the deploy button on fuel dashboard can be used to deploy the environment.
-It is as well possible to do the configuration manuell.
-Feature configuration on existing Fuel
-If a Fuel server is already provided but the fuel plugins for Opendaylight, Openvswitch
-and BGPVPN are not provided install them by:
- cd /opt/opnfv/
- fuel plugins --install fuel-plugin-ovs-*.noarch.rpm
- fuel plugins --install opendaylight-*.noarch.rpm
- fuel plugins --install bgpvpn-*.noarch.rpm
-If plugins are installed and you want to update them use --force flag.
-Now the feature can be configured. Create a new environment with "Neutron with ML2 plugin" and
-in there "Neutron with tunneling segmentation".
-Go to Networks/Settings/Other and check "Assign public network to all nodes". This is required for
-features such as floating IP, which require the Compute hosts to have public interfaces.
-Then go to settings/other and check "OpenDaylight plugin", "Use ODL to manage L3 traffic",
-"BGPVPN plugin" and set the OpenDaylight package version to "5.2.0-1". Then you should
-be able to check "BGPVPN extensions" in OpenDaylight plugin section.
-Now the deploy button on fuel dashboard can be used to deploy the environment.
