I am new to OpenStack and I try to understand it in a way to install it to VM. As hypervisor I configure XenServer 6.2. But I stuck in configuration, where I must to configure "VIF Isolation Rules". Documentation is here:

But there is only patch for XS 5.6, not XS 6.2 who didn't work on XS 6.2 either.

Next step - But there I don't understand, should this be configured in Controller on node-compute?

on /etc/xensource/scripts/vif has the variable setup_vif_rules pointed to "/opt/xensource/libexec/setup-vif-rules" perhaps the patch is not necessary

Can someone please help with this issue? Please let us know if the patch is surely not needed in xen 6.2. I am going to try it without a patch, if I get lucky, I will post results here. Thanks in advance! PS

Those rules are applied on Dom0 (XenServer host). Try the devstack xen tools:
