[openstack-dev] [Fuel] How to auto allocate VIPs for roles in different network node groups?

I would also prefer second solution. The only real downside of it is the
possibility to configure invalid cluster (for instance configure default
"controller" roles in different racks). But such invalid configuration is
possible only under some conditions:
- User should configure multi-rack environment (network node groups). I'd
say it's rather advanced Fuel usage and user most likely will follow our
documentation, so we can describe possible problems in the documentation.
- User should ignore notifications about possible problems from Fuel. I
must say that this is quite possible when using CLI, because notifications
should be checked manually in this case.
Solution #1 is much safer, of course. But for me it looks like "let's
forbid as much as we can just to avoid any risks". I prefer to give Fuel
users a choice here which is possible only in second solution.

No, let's put a warning for user. I don't think that forbidding is the
proper way of handling such situations. Especially when we're not going to
forbid such setup in 9.0.

special in it.
Not quite. Default groups is the group where Fuel node is connected to.

True. But we're going block deployment of roles that share VIP (created
from plugin, for instance) even when no load-balancing is involved at all -
just to be safe.
