Network Configuration for Openstack-Ansible Target hosts

I have to deploy Openstack on AWS using Ansible. The project requires to have the following specifications:

  • 1 Deployment Host
  • 2 Compute Hosts
  • 1 Infrastructure Host
  • 1 Storage Host
  • 1 Logging Host

I am done with the initial setup and have created each above-mentioned instance. I'm stuck at the network configuration on target hosts like compute hosts. The docs on Openstack specifies to just create bridges but I'm fairly new to this and don't know much about bridges. Can someone suggest a good resource for understanding this or some help? That would be great!

You only need to know how to createthose bridges, a.k.a Linux Bridges. There is plenty of information on this subject out there, for example

That page looks like a good, easy to read introduction to Linux networking for virtualization. Read the entire article.

I have seen those and know how to create bridges. But i wanted something specific to openstack ansible, is there something in that?

Just create those bridges. There is nothing specific about them, except their names.

I have created with bridges, but now when I run the setup_hosts playbook openstack-ansible setup-hosts.yml it gives me an error that those bridges are not reachable. Anybody knows, is it AWS specific problem or something I am doing wrong? Also, I can't ping the bridges from other hosts as well.
