I am wondering how to tell what port I want to use when I start an instance using horizon? I want to attach a port of type direct or macvtap but I don't find how to precise the port that needs to be used. This BP talks about the possibility of managing different port of a sub-net via Admin > Network in the dashboard.

Of course it is possible to use the CLI following the SR-IOV guide: the two commands:

neutron port-create <net-id> --binding:vnic-type <direct | macvtap | normal>
nova boot --flavor m1.large --image <image> --nic port-id=<port1> --nic port-id=<port2> <vm name>

but how to do that using horizon only?

Thanks a lot.
