Hi, I want to spawn the instance into a private network so that it gets its IP from that network itself and I can ping it as well as access it. I need help on this, as to how should I configure neutron for this??? I have an Icehouse Controller/network node, compute node and glance node.

I already have a physical network with me. I want my vm's to get IP's from that network on spawning. Will these steps work in that scenario?

you havent specified which network topology you would like to use. From the terms such as private network it seems you are going for a VLAN tenant network. Am it correct?

If yes then try creating a new network and add a subnet to the network and spawn a VM. A network namespace will be created in neutron(network) node from where you will be able to acess the VM via its private IP

I have a network with me, existing physical network. I want to create the new VM's into that network and make them accessible from my organisation's intranet.

Login as demo ( for instance), via dashboard GUI

1.Create private net && subnet with DHCP ( say demo_network )
2. Create router and set it's internal interface to demo_network and external gateway to public.
3. When launching new instance you will get drop-down menu with name "demo_network", click on it to select.
