Mitaka : install VM via Management network

HI,

My Controller node (vmware VM) and Compute node (G8) are installed in my private lan (10.0.0.0/24).

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 10.0.0.0/24, is it possible to create an instance that can communicate with vsphere vms installed on 10.0.0.0/24 ?

root@controller images]# neutron net-list

Management network is linked to eth0 (vmware vlan) 10.0.0.0/24

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 10.0.0.0/24) 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 !
