To set up openstack (3 node architecture) - do I need multiple physical ethernet slots? The controller node that I am creating has only one ethernet slot so I am confused as to how to set up the interfaces in the networking section. I am using Openstack Icehouse manual from the Openstack website.

If you are creating Openstack setup on VMs then you might not need physical interface and you can manage with virtual interfaces. However on baremetal server you need to have multiple physical interfaces. This is for Management, Data & network connections.
