Mitaka : install VM via Management network

My Controller node (vmware VM) and Compute node (G8) are installed in my private lan (

I am able to create instance and assign floating ip address.

GURKES299 linus> 
GURKES299 linus> ifconfig
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr FA:16:3E:0A:XX:XX  
          inet addr:172.16.XX.XX...

I am able to access the instance via the floating ip or from controller via ip netns exec qrouter-xxxxx ssh XXX@172.16.XX.XX

As my KVM instances need to communicate via several machines from, is it possible to create an instance that can communicate with vsphere vms installed on ?

root@controller images]# neutron net-list
| id                                   | name        | subnets                                                |
| bf33523d-589c-40d9-b465-b0c5dfd708ae | provider    | 34f4e7ab-490c-4926-a566-6f835e20afb3 212.166.XX.XX/28 |
| 0557444b-2627-4ecc-806d-d9f73814e877 | selfservice | 610537c6-fb58-4b07-993b-c47a9e8444a5     |

Management network is linked to eth0 (vmware vlan)

Provider network contains a set of public ips linked to eth3 (public vlan) 212.166.XX.XX/28

The best solution would be to use the selfservice mode that could assign a 10.0.0.XX ip to instance (and that could ping other vpshere vm installed on and also use floating ip to access the machine from the outside world).

Could you please tell me if this is feasible ?

Thanks for your help !
