Wondering if anyone has setup multi-node OpenStack on VMware Workstation? Is it even suppose to work ? I've set it up with in multinode configuration, but I cannot even ping my float ip interface on my test VM. Any ideas?

VMware workstation supports nested virtualization, so KVM is possible.

You should enable promiscuous mode for the NIC added to the VM in which you installed Openstack.
