I have installed openstack devstack icehouse branch on my ubuntu virtual machine. When I start the openstack(using ./ on terminal), it starts at localhost(i.e. on the ip of the virtual machine). I want to start openstack on some ip other than localhost. So how can this be done. Which files need to be modified for this.

Devstack automatically detect the public network interface when it is installed. If you have multiple interfaces available in your virtual machine and you want to set an IP on which openstack should start, then add an entry in local.conf:


The IP should match the IP on any one of your network interface. If you are talking about starting on IP that is outside VM(i.e on host you are running your VM) then it can not be done, Yes you can use port forwarding provided by Virtualization software you are using.
