Description Simone Tiraboschi 2015-05-21 13:14:03 UTC
Description of problem:
The user could now configure some of the appliance parameters such its hostname via cloud-init.
But the appliance still relies only on DHCP based configuration.
Let the user specify a static network configuration for the appliance and provide it over cloud-init.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.6

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. deploy hosted-engine configuring the appliance via cloud-init
2.
3.

Actual results:
it simply relies over DHCP

Expected results:
it should ask about an optional static configuration

Additional info:
Cloud-init already supports network-interfaces field and it should be able to translate it into the specific format for the guest OS.
Example:
network-interfaces: |
  iface eth0 inet static
  address 192.168.1.10
  network 192.168.1.0
  netmask 255.255.255.0
  broadcast 192.168.1.255
  gateway 192.168.1.254

Evaluate if we also want to push an entry for the host in guest /etc/hosts

Verified on ovirt-hosted-engine-setup-1.3.0-0.4.beta.git42eb801.el7ev.noarch
Use have possibility to choose static network configuration(ip, DNS, default gateway)
