Subject Dependency to select SourceNAT service when selecting StaticNAT service
Date Sat, 06 Sep 2014 01:37:56 GMT
Hi Hugo,

When creating an Isolated network, "Add Isolate Network" UI shows only the
Network Offerings that has source NAT enabled. This means that we need to
always to pick SourceNAT service when creating a network offering even
though this service is not supported by the plugin.

Could you please let me know the reason for adding this restriction?

Also, I saw a code that checks if SourceNAT service is enabled while
acquiring a Floating IP on a network:

*IpAddressManagerImpl.java*

*if (network.getGuestType() == GuestType.Isolated &&*
*
!(_networkModel.areServicesSupportedInNetwork(network.getId(),
Service.SourceNat))) {*
*                throw new InvalidParameterValueException("In zone of type
" + NetworkType.Advanced +*
*                        " ip address can be associated only to the network
of guest type " + GuestType.Isolated +*
*                        " with the " + Service.SourceNat.getName() + "
enabled");*
*            }*

Because of enabling SourceNAT service, one public IP is always getting
wasted. This happens in case of VPC tiers too.

We are looking for a way to avoid this. Is this fixable? I would be
definitely interested in the discussions to resolve this requirement.

Thanks,
Suresh
