  1. Access each VM through the management port:
    ssh -p <port> localhost

    port is the number for the management port assigned when the VM was created.

    • 10021 is the port number for VM1
    • 10022 is the port number for VM2
  2. Inside the VM, list the network interfaces:
    ip link
  3. In the host1 VM, configure the OVS-connected Ethernet port with an IP address:
    Note: It is important that for each tenant each VM is configured with a unique IP address on the same IP subnet. Different tenants could use addresses from the same IP subnet since they are isolated on different integration bridges.
    Note: The following is an example IP address configuration.

    VM A1 (host1)

    ip addr add dev <if>
    ip link set <if> up

    VM B1 (host1)

    ip addr add dev <if>
    ip link set <if> up
