I have a multi-node set up with more than 5 compute nodes. I want some VM's to be installed on different hosts. Is it possible to specify a host on which you want the VM to be installed. Possibly by its IP address? The scheduler filtering helps to specify some criteria but I am looking to install on a very specific host using its IP address. Not criteria like CPU, RAM size, etc. Is it possible?

Yes , I would say its possible to boot a VM on a specific host using --availability_zone zone:host parameters with nova boot command

If you are using folsom release , I believe its --force_hosts parameter. nova hypervisor-list will list the compute nodes available

Check nova boot command for more details.
