Yes, neutron net-list will show several nets. Select id for the right one:-

nova boot --flavor 2 --key_name ubukey1 --image dc47ff44-2bf9-41c1-b3d3-70e10493b3c8 --nic net-id=selected-net-id UbuntuRSX01

You would better learn official manuals and post to thread afterwards to avoid such kind of confusion.

That is what i thought of , Use the readymade qcow2 images to launch ubuntu instance on your vm , Download the qcow2 image and edit it via guestfish tool to set the root password , once done save it and import it to your openstack via glance image-create .
