Subject Re: Some info on Physical Networks
Date Mon, 21 May 2012 18:45:41 GMT
The Physical Network Name is just a label used in the GUI, however there is an edit button
under each of the network types, the names applied here need to match the Network Names assigned
in XenServer

Kind Regards

Within the context of CloudStack, "Physical Network" refers to the physical, cabled network
that your hypervisor hosts are connected to. "Network Name-labels" still play their part in
3.0.2 the same as they did in 2.2.x, as far as I'm aware.

If anyone else feels I'm incorrect, please correct me ... but this is my current understanding.
I hope I could help! :)
