The documentation for configuring Neutron recommends that a network controller has three physical interfaces:
Before you start, set up a machine to be a dedicated network node. Dedicated network nodes should have the following NICs: the management NIC (called MGMT_INTERFACE), the data NIC (called DATA_INTERFACE), and the external NIC (called EXTERNAL_INTERFACE).
People occasionally ask, "why three interfaces? What if I only have two?", so I wanted to provide an extended answer that might help people understand what the interfaces are for and what trade-offs are involved in using fewer interfaces.read more
Automatic hostname entries for libvirt domains
Have you ever wished that you could use
libvirt domain names as
hostnames? So that you could do something like this:
$ virt-install -n anewhost ... $ ssh clouduser@anewhost
Since this is something that would certainly make my life convenient, I put together a small script called virt-hosts that makes this possible …read more
Interrupts on the PiFace
I recently acquired both a Raspberry Pi and a PiFace IO board. I had a rough time finding examples of how to read the input ports via interrupts (rather than periodically polling for values), especially for the newer versions of the PiFace python libraries.
After a little research, here's some …read more
Generating a memberOf attribute for posixGroups
This showed up on #openstack earlier today:

This means that memberOf doesn't show up, and that the memberUid in the group is not a dn. any thoughts on how to accomplish this?
