I am new to Openstack and FUEL. While going through FUEL i got some basic doubts.

Do i need to connect FUEL running machine and also source machine (where i need to install OpenStack) to the internet? How the connection settings would be. Is there any diagram available to understand FUEL connectivity?

Hi, the machines doesn't need internet connection, all is in the fuel master node ISO. If you are testing over VirtualBox here is a link which explains how to do it:

The automated scripts will configure your network interfaces in the VMs. If you are running VBox in a Windows machine, you should install Cygwin with the following plugins:

setup-x86_64.exe -a x86_64 -P expect,openssh,ping,procps --quiet-mode \ --site

Thanks for the reply.

Actually i tried to install it in Virtual Machine but i have total RAM size of 4 GB (for VM). Is it mandatory to have bigger RAM size. Or can i manage with the existing one?

You can, but your environment will run so so slow. You can install 1 master node and then run 2 openstack nodes with the minimum hw. When you finish to install openstack, shutdown the master node and upgrade hw for other 2.
