I am attempting to install openstack on 8 vmware virtual machines for testing of openstack's high availability. I am doing this for a distributed computing project. So the machines that I create do not need access to the internet.

Currently am trying to install openstack on centos7.

I am attempting to work on the network node, but looking at the documentation at ( ( It looks like one of the network interfaces goes out to the internet(external network).

I have one nic that is setup for access to the internet. I have another 2 nics that do not have access to the internet.

My question is do I need to have the external network, or is there a way that I can set up the external network to use the internet facing network?

I had planned to use the internet facing network for the management network.
