Similar question have been asked on this community but didn't found satisfy answer.

I am currently trying to figure out how to integrate OpenStack with vmware. I am using Openstack Libery and vCenter server 6.0

I don't want to use Vmware Integrated Openstack (VIO) because it comes with vSphere enterprise plus edition.

I have read couple of links but didn't get satisfactory steps to install. I found OpenStack documentation to use KVM/QEMU is best guide but when it comes to use ESXi as hypervisor documented steps are confusing.

For example:

In OpenStack config reference section named "Networking with VMware vSphere" has following contents:

"If you are using the OpenStack Networking Service: Before provisioning VMs, create a port group with the same name as the vmware.integration_bridge value in nova.conf (default is br-int). All VM NICs are attached to this port group for management by the OpenStack Networking plug-in."

Here it is unclear that how to create port-group or how all VM NICs are attached to port-group.

I went through following links for reference:

Do we have any well structured documentation for integrartion of OpenStack(Liberty) with vmware.
