Subject Re: Basic networking - Multiple pods for 1 zone
Date Tue, 10 Mar 2015 23:35:22 GMT

In Basic Networking the preferred deployment method is exactly how you describe, and is actually
enforced by global settings.

Each POD should have a unique Guest IP Range and Reserved IP Range.  I also consider it best
practice to have your Hosts on a completely different IP range.

The Idea is that each POD is a broadcast domain contained within its top of rack switching,
and routing of guest traffic between PODs is handled by your core switches.

I think it should be possible what you suggest. Have not tried it though.

Subject: Basic networking - Multiple pods for 1 zone

Hi All,

Apologies, second question in one evening.... :-)

If you have 1 zone in cloudstack configured for basic networking, and 2
pods. Are you able to configure these pods to have completely different
subnets on different vlans?

This is certainly possible to do in the webinterface, but will it work in
practice? Or should these pods be on the same subnet, with the same
gateway, and just have different ip ranges assigned to them?
