Hi. I've followed the steps in the docs below to build a Windows 2008 image under KVM running on a RedHat 6.4 host. I want to create the image and sysprep it before uploading it to glance as per the guide, but I'm stuck at Step 7 - Download and install Cloudbase-Init. (OpenStack - Example Microsoft Image)

The booted W2K8 image has been assigned an address on the virbr0 network with an IP address of but I can't figure out how to get it to connect externally to grab the ( binary mentioned in the guide. The instance can't ping any external sites. It's DNS address is (the RHEL 6.4 host) but is not resolving any address so I cant figure out what to do next.

Any advice appreciated.

Is the virbr0 network setup as NAT or isolated?
