If we don't have such features today,  I would like to initiate a new 
project page about this.  The basic idea is:
I) Engine should have a pool of IPs. Engine also can assign a specific 
IP to the VM or assign a random IP in the pool to the VM
II) ovirt agent in guest should request the IP from VDSM. And VDSM proxy 
its request to engine.
III)After ovirt agent get the IP, it can configure the system in one time.
