Thank you both for your help, based on steps suggested above I was
able to mount ceph volume in user instance when Overcloud was deployed
with net-iso with net-single-nic-with-vlans (which is the easiest one
I can deploy in my virtualenv). For net-single-nic-with-vlans I
skipped creation of additional bridge (since single bridge is used for
all networks in this case) and deployed OC as usually, then I
configured networking:
neutron net-create storage --shared --provider:physical_network
datacentre --provider:network_type vlan --provider:segmentation_id 30
neutron subnet-create --name storage-subnet     --allocation-pool
start=,end=    --enable-dhcp storage

and created user instance with tenant and storage network:
| f7d4e619-c8f5-4de3-a4c3-4120eea818d1 | Server1 | ACTIVE | -
| Running     | default-net=,;
storage= |

The obstacle I'm hitting though is that the second interface with
storage network doesn't come up automatically on instance boot:
3: eth1: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 qdisc noop state DOWN group
default qlen 1000
    link/ether fa:16:3e:71:90:df brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

from cloud-init log:
ci-info: +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Net device
ci-info: | Device |   Up  |    Address    |      Mask     | Scope |
 Hw-Address    |
ci-info: | eth1:  | False |       .       |       .       |   .   |
fa:16:3e:27:2a:bf |
ci-info: | eth0:  |  True | | |   .   |
fa:16:3e:ba:00:49 |
ci-info: | eth0:  |  True |       .       |       .       |   d   |
fa:16:3e:ba:00:49 |
ci-info: |  lo:   |  True |   |   |   .   |
     .         |
ci-info: |  lo:   |  True |       .       |       .       |   d   |
     .         |

If I manually set IP for eth1, then ceph mount works. We discussed
this with Giulio and he suspects the problem is that DHCP conflicts
with DHCP server running on undercloud for storage network. Any ideas?

Thanks, Jan
