I have installed OpenStack Icehouse on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, I have a controller node and an additional compute node as follows.

I need better network management and I understand that using neutron should provide this.

I have multiple networks attached to my hosts and I'd like to be able to provision an IP from any but not all for new instances. It seems currently that a new instance is assigned an IP from each attached network and I cannot configure during provisioning.

I hope I have clearly explained my requirement. I can't locate a clear guide as to how to achieve this. I have found articles that say disable nova and enable neutron but they do not explain how to do so.

Can anyone assist?
