Red Hat RDO: All-in-One DIY Config with exisiting network

Im a total newbee to openstack, and am currently trying out rdo on a CentOS 6.5 system.

Im trying to follow the 'PackStack All-in-One DIY Configuration'(1.) guide, but am having some trouble with connecting the dots with this guide 'Neutron with existing external network'(2.). Basically im trying to do the 'do it yourself all in one guide' and setting it up to work with an existing network.

When I try to follow the guide in 2., I get an error when I give the 'neutron subnet-create' command: "Unable to find network with name 'public'" So I guess I need to create it using 'neutron net-create public --router:external=True' ?

And then when I try the command 'neutron router-gateway-set router1 public', I get this error: "Unable to find router with name 'router1'" So I guess I need to create it first with this command ? "neutron router-create router1"

After that, I guess can I continue with the guide in 1. ?

Any and all help is sincerely appreciated.

Perform install via `packstack --allinone`. Login as demo :-
1. remove interface to private demo network.
2. clear gateway for routrer1.
3. delete router1
Login as admin :-
1. Remove public (external network ).
2. Create external network for project services exactly as you need.
Login as demo :-
1. Create router2
2.Set gateway to newly created external network.
3.Set interface to private demo network . It may be old one or newly created private network

Thanks. I guess thats pretty much what is described in the 'PackStack All-in-One DIY Configuration' guide. Guess the major difference is in that guide you run packstack with these parameters: "--provision-demo=n --provision-all-in-one-ovs-bridge=n", so in that case there is no demo network to delete, and you manually have to create the tenant. Ill try this, and see how far that gets me.
