Subject RE: Short question on basic network zones

Hi Daniel,

Yes, the Guest VMs can (and should) use a different Network than the Hosts.

If you are using XenServer as your Hosts, simply use one NIC (or Bond) for the Host Management
Traffic and set the Default VLAN on the Switch Port as XenServer cannot tag its Management

For Guest Traffic, whilst you do not configure a VLAN for Guest Traffic within CloudStack,
you simply either create a Virtual Network or Bond within XenServer and set a VLAN tag, or
if using dedicated NIC(s) for Guest traffic, set the VLAN on the Switch Ports.

Subject: Short question on basic network zones

Hash: SHA1

Hello all

I was wondering, is it possible for a basic network zone to have a guest network which is
different from the network that the hosts are in.

I am currently intending to build a setup where the guests use a different /24 than the hosts,
and I have the bridge configured for it and the vlan also works on the hypervisor host itself,
I just can't get any traffic to the guest IPs.

Do I need a zone with advanced networking for that?

Kind regards;
