Set up VM to connect Tripleo QuickStart Overcloud via Virt-manager GUI

Set up Gnome Desktop && VirtTools on Virtualization Server (VIRTHOST) and make remote connection to Virt-manager running on VIRTHOST ( Then create VM via virt-manager as follows using standard CentOS 7.2 ISO image , I am aware of post “Connecting another vm to your tripleo-quickstart deployment”  at :-
and manage this way deliberately. Just wondering is it possible to get results similar to obtained by LarsKS ( via in depth knowledge virsh CLI and Libvirt features) with Virt-manager GUI intuitively much more affordable. I realize that speed and flexibility of approach suggested bellow are losing the aforementioned

Proceed with VM set up via Virt-manager remote GUI. Attaching “external” and “overcloud” networks to VM and assign static IPs to eth0 and eth1 which belong to corresponding networks.

[root@ServerCentOS72 ~]# virsh net-list

Name State Autostart Persistent
default active yes yes
external active yes yes
overcloud active yes yes

Looks good , start install

Installation completed.  Following step verfication availabilty connect to
overcloud on VIRTHOST. Check static IPs on Remote Console and connect
to dashboard of Controller

Now connect to VMs running in overcloud

Switching eth1 to DHCP mode on RemoteConsole (following post at

[root@ServerCentOS72 ~]# virsh dumpxml RemoteConsole | xmllint –xpath ‘//interface‘ –
<interface type=”network”>
<mac address=”52:54:00:dd:c6:9d”/>
<source network=”overcloud” bridge=”brovc”/>
<target dev=”vnet1″/>
<model type=”virtio”/>
<alias name=”net1″/>
<address type=”pci” domain=”0x0000″ bus=”0x00″ slot=”0x04″ function=”0x0″/>

Creating port on ctlplane ( undercloud VM )

On RemoteConsole switch eth1 to DHCP mode via NetworkManager GUI

We are all set
