+What is Compass4nfv
+===================
+
+Compass4nfv is an installer project based on open source project Compass,
+which provides automated deployment and management of OpenStack and other distributed systems.
+It can be considered as what the LiveCD to a single box for a pool of servers – bootstrapping
+the server pool.
+
+see more information, please visit

+
+What's the additional setting in switch if use the default network configuration
+================================================================================
+
+Here is the Compass4nfv default network configration file:
+compass4nfv/deploy/conf/network_cfg.yaml
+
+It uses a VLAN network for mgmt and storage networks that are share one NIC(eth1) as a
+default network configuration. So you need add an additional tagged VLAN (101) and VLAN (102) on
+eth1's switch for access.
+
+How to deal with installation failure caused by setting pxe and reset nodes failed
+==================================================================================
+
+At first, please make sure that deployed nodes' ipmi network can access from Jumphost and
+IPMI user/pass is correct.
+
+Compass4nfv supports IPMI 1.0 or IPMI 2.0 to control your nodes, so you can set it according your IPMI
+version in dha.yml.
+
+.. code-block:: yaml
+
+ ipmiVer: '2.0'
+
+How to deal with installation failure caused by "The Server quit without updating PID file"
+===========================================================================================
+
+If you see "The Server quit without updating PID file" in installation print log, it is caused by
+mgmt network can't access from each deployed nodes, so you need to check your switch setting whether
+an additional tagged VLAN is added if uses default network configuration.
+
+How to set OpenStack Dashboard login user and password
+======================================================
+
+It uses admin/console as the default user/pass for OpenStack Dashboard, and you can set it in below file:
+compass4nfv/deploy/conf/base.conf
+
+How to visit OpenStack Dashboard
+================================
+
+You can visit OpenStack Dashboard by URL: http://{puclib_vip}/horizon
+
+The public virtual IP is configured in "compass4nfv/deploy/conf/network_cfg.yaml", defined as below:
+
+.. code-block:: yaml
+
+ public_vip:
+ ip: 192.168.50.240
+
+How to access BM nodes after deployment
+=======================================
+
+1. First you should login Compass VM via ssh command on JumpHost by default user/pass root/root.
+The default login IP of Compass VM is configured in "compass4nfv/deploy/conf/base.conf", defined as below:
+
+.. code-block:: bash
+
+ export MGMT_IP=${MGMT_IP:-192.168.200.2}
+
+2. Then you can login the BM nodes (host1-3) by default user/pass root/root via the install network IPs
+which are configured in "compass4nfv/deploy/conf/base.conf", defined as below:
+
+.. code-block:: bash
+
+ export MANAGEMENT_IP_START=${MANAGEMENT_IP_START:-'10.1.0.50'}
