[Openstack] Per tenant provider networks

Hi Chris,

If you’re looking to provide a network to a tenant that is a flat/VLAN network using an external gateway, you should be able to create the network as a admin and use --tenant-id in the net-create and subnet-create commands to specify the ID of the tenant.

I'm using the following topology:

VLAN Provider Networks:


Where each Tenant have its own VLAN tag ID, isolated from the others.

No Neutron acting as a L3 Router, no GRE, no VXLAN.

Hi All

I want to have all users in a tenant being capable of connecting their VM to a provider network, but I want this provider network to be visible only by that tenant. I have several tenants and I need one such dedicated provider network for each of my tenants.

How can I do this ?

You could tell me to use a private/tenant network but as far as I know, the only for accessing a VM connected to a tenant/private network is thru a floating IP and external network and this is not wanted.
