Instance creation is multi step tasks. During the troubleshooting I would like to focus on specific task which is failing during the instance creation. According to my understanding as of now, we can't create the instance without enabling/installign the networking(either nova-network or neutron). Networkig is one of the confusing and complex setup to many stackers.

What I would like to acheive is that during instance creation process I would like to skip the network configuration for instance. Ensure that without networking instance creation is succesful. After this I would like to enable networking and create the instance.

Is there any configuration to disable networking step during the instance creation ?

I'm very clear that this is not a production scenario. However my foucs is to help in step-by-step troubleshooting of instance creation issue.

Any thoughts.

thanks tom. That is the option I'm looking now in configuration files. Let me do one research and revert.

I believe this is possible by setting the network_driver to a NoOp driver, but I'm not sure of the specific details.
