Network configuration

Hirlea, it really depends on what you going to use for this CCP installation? Are you going to have other users who need isolation or rather you need to have VMs which will be able to communicate together?

Is this going to be just internal Cloud installation or you going to have real public IP?

We need VMs with public IP.

CloudStack has a concept of Shared Network, you can define such network as an CloudStack administrator and than let users access this network and use public IPs in this network. You can use DHCP or have manual assignment of IPs. 

Have a look on the CCP documentation and check Shared Network because there are few caveats when it comes to this feature.

Why do you think I have asked for help here ? I have read all documentation but I need other opinion.

 

I need an example of configuration for network and storage ... to create VMs with  public IP.

Hi Iulian,

 

I quess you already have read the trial step-by-step install guide:

https://support.citrix.com/servlet/Kbservlet/download/35838-102-706912/CloudPlatform4.2TrialInstallGuide.pdf

 

Maybe a good idea would be to start with Basic, for two reasons: you are starting experimenting with CloudPlatform and your network requirements do not seem very complex. However, probaly you will finish rebuilding all your environment using Advanced, since it offers much better network flexibility.

 

Primary and secondary storage have special meanings in CloudPlatform - you need both. Primary storage is vhere VMs are stored and working, and this should be high-speed (local to servers or a SAN), while secondary storage it is used for ISO files, snapshots, VM templates - it can be lower speed (a Linux NFS, for example), but you need to consider that the files stored here can be pretty large.

 

Have a great day :)

Corneliu,

 

I have a setup at home to test CCP with a few XenServer hosts and a NFS storage server. All my devices are behind a simple router (network is set to 192.168.0.0/24). When I create VMs, they would access my local network via DHCP/static and internet through NAT.

 

I attempted the Basic network configuration, but I had trouble understanding the differences in configuring the pod, zone and cluster networks. Would you mind helping me with this specific home setup?

 

Thank you,

Rafael
