Hi All,

New to OpenStack and trying to get it going on my home lab server.

I was wondering if it is possible to create 2 networks, one which is connected directly to my main network, and one which is setup as a private network and routed through the main network. I had a similar config going with KVM but I'd like to run it in OpenStack.

I've attached an image of what I want,

Also how would I configure this? I'm running on CentOS 7.

Thanks a lot!

Apart from VM1, this is a typical setup. You have one external NW, 192, and a tenant NW, 172, connected to the external NW via a tenant router. AFAIK you can connect VM1 directly to the external NW, but you need to be admin to do that. I don't know if you can give a tenant the permission to do that.

By the way, the term "openstack instance" is bound to confuse people. I first thought you meant an instance running in OpenStack. Better call it Host, or Physical Host, or all-in-one host or some such.
