Could you please tell me which booting option I should choose? When servers are turned on, there are three booting options shown: Bootstrap, Centos, and Ubuntu. Which one is good for PXE booting? I chose Bootstrap, but I am not sure.

Another question is who (Fuel or me) assign Public IP address to server? When I turned on servers I found that fuel assigned PXE (Admin) IP address to servers as I configured on Fuel setup. Should I assign public IP address on servers after booting them using manually with some command like "ifconfig" ? or Will Fuel assign public IP address to servers according to the configuration on "Network Setiings" web page on Fuel?

Thank you,

When the servers boot up, you can select bootstrap. During deployment Fuel will install centos/ubuntu to your servers based on OpenStack environment configuration.

For the second question, In general, Fuel configures the public network during deployment (based on your networks tab public network config). If you configure the public network (in Fuel networks tab) same as your public network (office/home), then its going to remain the same (In some cases, you may just have to change the gateway address). You need not assign public address manually.

Hope this answers your questions.
