Network "net_mgmt" in manual Tacker installation

Bug Description

The sample sample-vnfd.yaml on that page uses a network_name "net_mgmt". The name is used by devstack, but these are the instructions for a manual installation which follows (according to the previous page of the instructions) the OpenStack install-guide. The correct network name is therefore not net_mgmt. Presumably, the best choice is "selfservice".

Sorry, I will try to be more precise.

The getting_started.html page linked in the bug report above contains a sample-vnfd.yaml file. In that file, one line reads: "network_name: net_mgmt".

"net_mgmt" is the name of a network which has to exist already (it is not created in the Tacker installation instructions). The network is a prerequisite.

A network with the name, "net_mgmt" is created by devstack. However, the manual installation instructions for Tacker do not use devstack. If you go one step back to, you will see that it links to the OpenStack documentation site which hosts the OpenStack install-guide ( Users who follow that install-guide will _not_ have a network called "net_mgmt". Therefore, the sample sample-vnfd.yaml will not work.

Of the networks that do exist in such a non-devstack, install-guide cluster, the most suitable replacement for "net_mgmt" is probably a network named "selfservice".

Does that make more sense?

I am currently building a Tacker installer for the OpenStack training-labs which is a fully automated installer for OpenStack. It follows the install-guide and the manual installation instructions for Tacker. That is why I am hitting this problem (and some others I reported).
