Hi all,

I have openstack installed with allinone mode with linux bridge as l2. Now i want to disable neutron in openstack, and we have a source which will provide an port which needs to be attached to VM. equivalent qemu command to spawn VM with port is working fine. Need to do same thing in openstack, while creating VM in openstack i need to send some qemu command line argumets which i am passing when i used my qemu command , so that i can get same result. But i have not found any option in nova boot command to do this. Please help me in this. If i disabled neutron service VM creation will work? It need code changes? and can i send these qemu cmdline arguments with metadata/user-data option? if not planning to add some more arguments to nova boot cmd to pass these qemu arguments, how can i start with this? What is the difficulty i can face here?

Plaese help me with suggestions / comments .Thanks in advance.
