OpenStack External Networks

With release 16.2.2, Avi Vantage now supports using OpenStack external networks (i.e , those marked as “external=True”) as VIP and/or pool networks. If these external networks have been correctly provisioned/configured, then the VIP is directly reachable from outside OpenStack without need for a floating-IP association. 

This feature is disabled by default and can be enabled as follows (currently only via the CLI):

configure cloud Default-Cloud
cloud> openstack_configuration
cloud:openstack_configuration> external_networks
cloud:openstack_configuration> save
cloud> save
