First of all, sorry for noob question and my english. I'm really interested in openstack and cloud-technologies but i'm not very experienced user of lunux. I want to create a very mini-cloud at my home using my home network, routes asus rt-g32 and laptop

Reading documentation chapter how to configure conrtol node, I had this situation: I installed vmware workstation, ubuntu 12.04 on it. I have lo, eth0 and wlan0 interfaces. I'm using wlan0 to connect to router, so i can surf the net, and actually I don't use eht0, but it works

In docs I found

Edit /etc/network/interfaces

Internal Network
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

External Network
auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static

And I got that question So, I wanted to ask you, how should i configure this on my laptop? Which interfaces should i use to configure it right?

Thank you!

If you are interested in having open stack on single node (all in one install) , I would recommend to go for RDO distribution of OpenStack. It's easy to install and configure. just google 'RDO'.

It's actually a vmware question ;) Just configure Your vmware workstation to use two bridged interfaces. If Your vmare workstation installation is working correctly it should work just fine. Actually if You plan to use a dummy network without any vswitches (do you have those in workstation? I have experience with vSphere). By the way Is workstation still supported I thought that vmware Player is the current sollution for home use.

Anyhow for You configuration I would strongly advise switching to oracle virtual box and using ready to go scripts for it from the fuel project. You will have a plesant gui and a sollution to setup a home environment. Be warned - i yet failed to come up with a way to combine the function of a compute node and cinder using it so If You stick to gui You'll need to create two separate nodes. Hope I helped (i'm still struggling with my issues and it's my first post here) - You'll find the gui tools here - free to register, Be aware to install centos and grizzly configuration and not the rhel +rhos to use the free version.
