    Good one. And also please provide overcloud install and configuration the next tutorial.

  2. Ranjeet says:

    nice article. Please publish article for overcloud install and configuration .

    How to do the step “Two Interfaces are attached to VM (Provisioning & NAT)” in Centos virt-manager ?

    virt-manager gui -> New VM -> Network selection -> Host device enpls0:macvtap
    Source mode : Bridge

    Like this?

    Hello Pardeep, actually I’m having issue while some sort of issues while setting the Networking Block for VM like Provisioning and NAT. I’ve done every thing, Enabled Nested Virtualization, Configure IP Forwarding but I don’t have the Network Connectivity between my VM and Host. even I’ve used ‘tcpdump’ to capture the traffic and I’ve got the result regarding ‘ARP’. both systems are not able to resolve ARP Requests. so plz help me to solve this issue
    My Setup : RHEL 7.3 as Host as well Guest( for UnderCloud )

    Please explain network address details.
    local_ip =
    undercloud_public_vip =
    undercloud_admin_vip =
    local_interface = eth1
    masquerade_network =
    dhcp_start =
    dhcp_end =
    network_cidr =
    network_gateway =
    inspection_iprange =,
    generate_service_certificate = true
    certificate_generation_ca = local

    Hello Pradeep, I have some confusion. Could you share about how to create Provisioning & NAT Network on KVM host ? Do physical interfaces need to be attached to the bridges belonged to Provisioning & NAT Network ? And do bridges need to be created with IPs ? Many thanks!

    • Pradeep Kumar says:

      Hi Jay,

      You need to create two networks i.e Provisioning and NAT using ‘virsh net-define’ on your KVM hypervisor, Specify the IP address range in the networks xml file,

      virsh net-define /tmp/provisioning.xml

      After creating the networks, attach these network to undercloud Interfaces via Bridges.

      • Jay says:

        hi Pradeep, I have successfully completed undercloud & overcloud installation. Thank you very much! !
        And I have other confusions. Thanks in advance.
        (1) Would it be OK if Provisiong Network not created using virsh net-define and I just create a bridge assigning IP address and then make undercloud & overcloud interfaces attached to the bridge ? if not, why ?
        (2) When configuring neutron, you know, which overcloud compute node interface should be attached to the bridge that will be configured in ”bridge_mappings = :” in openvswitch_agent.ini ? That means which interface is used to openstack VM network ?

      I was able to resolve this error by adding more memory to VM. I could figure out this on carefully inspecting log which was indicated that its not able to fork the process.

          Looks like you need to follow ‘’ this link each time if you face this issue, as this one contains the latest info.
          e.g. for now the repo link is ‘’

          Also on step5 path has been changed. New path is
          cp /usr/share/python-tripleoclient/undercloud.conf.sample ~/undercloud.conf

    Hi Chris,

    I have modified the delorean-deps.repo or delorean.repo with your repo, but still cannot fix this issue.


    • Christopher says:

      Hi Wilson,

      I just modified the name and base_url line of the file from this article with the lines from the file I linked too.

      Hi , I would suggest you to update your system first(Director/Undercloud), using yum update command and reboot it and then give a try of above command
