Here we are going to deploy openstack on a single node, i.e all openstack components Nova, Glance, Keystone, Quantum and Horizon will be running in the same box. Nova-compute is also running on the same machine which will provision virtual machines on the KVM.
Ubuntu 12.04 running on Oracle VirtualBox with two NIC ‘s.

service networking restart
- You can verify your network setting using “ ifconfig ”
- Login to the ubuntu VM.
- Change the user to root.
- If your network is behind proxy then please export proxy variables.
- Install git on the machine
apt-get update -y
apt-get install git -y
- Clone the CloudGear git to install Openstack
- Execute the script to set up openstack
- Open Openstack Dashboard in browser from URL http://<controller-ip>/horizon
- Login with credentials admin/secret
- Add a image into Glance
- Create Network for Virtual Machines.
- Create subnet for the network created above.
