Can I allocate different networks to different instances? [closed]

I have two networks connected to my OpenStack Icehouse on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. New instances receive an address from each connected network. Can I configure so that a new instance will receive only one IP address thus allowing me create twice the quantity of instances?


network 1: network 2:

I'd like instances to have an interface from either but not both these networks. This will allow me create 508 VMs instead of 254, which is what it seems I currently have.

Are you using nova-networks ?

Yes, you can create two private networks and connect them to Public network using OVS then allocate floating IP. The other option is create two public networks with IP address you have mentioned and directly attach VMs while launching.

Looks like you are using nova-networks. Allocate different networks to different instances is not a problem in Neutron architecture.

I understand from another question that I asked and received feedback on that I should disable nova and enable neutron. Don't yet know how to perform this task.
