Subject RE: Cloudstack advanced networking for development environment

	Thanks for the fast reply. I have looked into your project. It is not exactly what we are
looking for. Your project resembles but for CS. We are looking basically
the opposite - real set of VM-s but at smaller scale. We have one host full of management
VM-s (db, 2xmanagement VM-s, storage VM, load balancer) and 3 hosts (for XEN guests). It is
nearly production environment, but without L3 switch. 
	I would say that basic network in CS works well and we have no problems setting it up.  But
for advanced networking where traffic should be isolated and routed it is much more difficult.
We often get "No route to host" and "destination unreachable" because of that.

Hi Vadim,

I am trying to setup cloudstack in a single virtualbox virtual machine.  My brief research
suggested that it is possible to deploy cloudstack like this for testing purposes.

I have been roughly following this article:

I have been automating the setup using vagrant.  I am getting close to completing, but there
is still some distance to go.

My project is here:

It may be useful for you, but it will only get you so far in setting up cloudstack.  I still
have to figure out how to get the network setup correctly.

Best regards,

This cloud supposed to have the same "advanced networking" configuration deployed over plain
network under subnet.
