Hello, I'm setting up an OpenStack cloud with the Grizzly release.

My set up is VLAN using nova-network and multihost. I have everything running great, multiple tenants with all instances spawning in the correct subnets, can ping/ssh etc.

But one thing is really bothering me. My bridge devices on my compute nodes all have IP addresses. How can I specify the bridges not to be created with IP addresses?

Thank you

Any thoughts on this? Having multihost and these bridges all getting IP's starts eating up my IP space when I add more and more compute nodes... Among other issues.. I think the answer lies somewhere among the dnsmasq configuration.

I realized I was fighting against myself. I was running multi-host, but what I really wanted was single-host.

However, this doesn't exactly answer my question. I have one tenant that I don't want any computer to be on the network except for the VM's, and the node running nova-network is still on it.
