Hi judd,

Thanks for your advice.

Your're correct.  This is a test, my 1st test on OpenStack, in order to learn.  This is my only spare PC available.  Eventhough for testing I'm on way to build another desktop PC with 32G RAM running AMD 8 cores CPU.

> "Swift AIO" (All In One) 
Whether you meant following document:
SAIO - Swift All In One

I still don't have a clear picture whether I need only ONE VM(guest) for the test.  OR I need 6 VMs?  I can create 6 new VMs without problem.

Furthermore whether I need installing any package on the host which is my most concern.  I still have other VMs running, testing other projects.  I don't expect touching the host avoiding making mistake detrimental to other projects.

Please help.

Stephen L
