[Openstack-operators] Installation Question on CentOS 6.3

Hi, all -

I'm performing a proof of concept installation on CentOS with the OpenStack packages that are located on EPEL.  I am following the tutorial located here:


I'm running everything on a pretty beefy VM (16GB RAM, 2 processor) just to see if I can get it up and running.

The VM, unfortunately, only has one VLAN segment attached to it.  Let's call it  (.129 is the network gateway, and .130 is my "all in one OpenStack system").  I'd like the VMs to use anything from .140-.150 for my Proof of Concept.  The VLAN already has DHCP being handed out on it.

I am up to the point where I'm right before launching my first instance.  (In the tutorial, above, it's under the "Nova Network Setup section", where the nova-manage network create command is.)

I'm a little lost on how to proceed further.  From the documentation here, it appears that I need to be possibly running a flat network:  http://docs.openstack.org/essex/openstack-compute/admin/content/configuring-flat-networking.html<http://docs.openstack.org/diablo/openstack-compute/admin/content/configuring-flat-networking.html>

Can someone please provide a little guidance on how to proceed?
