Hi When you create a port separately, you can specify additional fixed IPs, extra DHCP options. But with 'nova boot' you cannot. Also if you need an instance with several nics, and you want that each nic has its own set of security groups, you should create ports separately. Because 'nova boot --security-groups ggg' command sets specified security groups for an each port, which is created during the instance launch.
