+Setup Requirements
+==================
+
+Jumphost Requirements
+---------------------
+
+The Jumphost requirements are outlined below:
+
+1. CentOS 7 (from ISO or self-installed).
+
+2. Root access.
+
+3. libvirt virtualization support.
+
+4. minimum 1 networks and maximum 5 networks, multiple NIC and/or VLAN
+ combinations are supported. This is virtualized for a VM deployment.
+
+5. The Colorado Apex RPMs and their dependencies.
+
+6. 16 GB of RAM for a bare metal deployment, 64 GB of RAM for a VM
+ deployment.
+
+Network Requirements
+--------------------
+
+Network requirements include:
+
+1. No DHCP or TFTP server running on networks used by OPNFV.
+
+2. 1-5 separate networks with connectivity between Jumphost and nodes.
+
+ - Control Plane (Provisioning)
+
+ - Private Tenant-Networking Network*
+
+ - External Network*
+
+ - Storage Network*
+
+ - Internal API Network* (required for IPv6 \*\*)
+
+3. Lights out OOB network access from Jumphost with IPMI node enabled
+ (bare metal deployment only).
+
+4. External network is a routable network from outside the cloud,
+ deployment. The External network is where public internet access would
+ reside if available.
+
+\*These networks can be combined with each other or all combined on the
+Control Plane network.
+
+\*\*Internal API network, by default, is collapsed with provisioning in IPv4
+deployments, this is not possible with the current lack of PXE boot
+support and therefore the API network is required to be its own
+network in an IPv6 deployment.
+
+Bare Metal Node Requirements
+----------------------------
+
+Bare metal nodes require:
+
+1. IPMI enabled on OOB interface for power control.
+
+2. BIOS boot priority should be PXE first then local hard disk.
+
+3. BIOS PXE interface should include Control Plane network mentioned above.
+
+Execution Requirements (Bare Metal Only)
+----------------------------------------
+
+In order to execute a deployment, one must gather the following information:
+
+1. IPMI IP addresses for the nodes.
+
+2. IPMI login information for the nodes (user/pass).
+
+3. MAC address of Control Plane / Provisioning interfaces of the overcloud
+ nodes.
