lab 10.2.8 (and possible others) --net-id vs --net-name
in command nova boot --flavor smallfry --image cirros \ --security-group web-ssh --key-name finance-key \ --nic net-id=blah-blah bc1 we need to know the id of the network we created, where as we could just use the name nova boot --flavor smallfry --image cirros \ --security-group web-ssh --key-name finance-key \ --nic net-name=finance-internal bc1 seems easier to me.
probably applies to other situations where the doco calls for an id.
