I'm trying to create a neutron port without an IP address in OpenStack Ocata. Per this spec it should be possible since Newton. When I use the OpenStackClient port create without specifying an IP, neutron always creates the port with the first available IP in the subnet.

My question is how do I create a neutron port without an IP address.

It seems like I need to create a network without a subnet, then I am able to create a port without any IP address.

After creating the port without IP, I'm unable to assign it to an existing VM or boot a new VM with it. I will create a new question regarding this issue.
