I'm actually having issues across the board...maybe its because I'm going
against the design ideals but I was told that in order to use the local
storage on the box and sacrifice VM migration capabilities, all machines
had to be in their own datacenter. Pain point number one.

Second pain point is adding additional networks aside from the initial
management network doesn't seem to be very intuitive. I'm a network
engineer for a living...and I can't figure it out.

Third pain point is ovirt management UI requires a restart semi frequently
due to crashing.

I added the network under the networks tab, but I noticed it doesn't ask
any interface questions (ok, it could technically attempt arp on all
interfaces like a citrix netscaler). I notice theres no ifconfig changes on
the host. I also notice that the other interface has a bridge named exactly
as the management name in the UI; ovirtmgmt, which is bridged to eth0. OK,
so I create a bridge called utility (my network name) and mapped it to a
vlan tagged interface I had setup on eth1.21. Everything looks identical to
how ovirt setup the initial network. The interface itself works, I can see
things on the network etc. Traffic passes.

Trying to run the VM results in errors because its failing network filters,
says it doesn't exist etc. All I want to do, is create a VM with some
memory, some disk, with a nic on a network, across individual machines. My
PXE provisioning will take over from there. Whats the best way to do this?
Sorry for all the questions -- your guys' response is great, and I really
appreciate the help thus far.

The exact message I get is:

Error while executing action:
utiltest:

   - Cannot run VM. There are no available running Hosts with all the
   networks used by the VM.
   - Cannot run VM. There is no host that satisfies current scheduling
   constraints. See below for details:
   - The host load3.pod1.########.com did not satisfy internal filter
   Network


Thanks,
Morgan
