DevStack - auto reconfigure br-ex bridge

Greetings,

I am trying to install DevStack but so far, unless I run stack.sh without local.conf file configured, I get errors during the operations of stack.sh

The reason I try to configure a local.conf in the first place, is because I want to achieve this:

  • I'm running Ubuntu Server 16.04 VM with virtual box. The VM is bridged so the IP address of the VM (192.168.1.5) is the same as the local network (192.168.1.0/24) of the physical machine it resides (192.168.1.3)
  • I need to achieve a configuration in which br-ex receives the static ip address information of the physcial interface of the VM (enp0s3) and simultaneously make the physical interface passive and OVS port to the br-ex bridge in order to be able to create floating IP assigments that derive from my home local network (192.168.1.0/24) and NOT the default 172.24.4.0/24 the devstack script assigns to br-ex and also allow ingress traffic from my local network to instances possible.

So , since every local.conf configuration I've tried so far failed, is there a way to mess the stack script so it does all of the above automatically while executing?

Any solutions, that are checked to be working, are acceptable (even a valid local.conf configuration)

Thank you in advance,

VG
