Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-2808) Documentation on Assigning a VLAN ID to a network
Date Fri, 23 Aug 2013 18:19:52 GMT


Alena Prokharchyk commented on CLOUDSTACK-2808:

Note that just ROOT admin can do it, so if regular user network needs to be created with the
vlan assigned, the Admin should do it on behalf of the user. Section 15.27.3 of the Admin
guide should be changed accordingly:

"VLAN: The VLAN ID for the tier you create. This option is only visible if the network offering
you selected is VLAN-enabled" - and the tier is being created by the ROOT admin

Section "11.10.3. Assigning VLANs to Isolated Networks CloudStack provides" should be changed
as well.

The reason why only Root admin can assign the Vlan to the network - only ROOT admin is aware
of the physical network topology, and the regular user/domain admin are not. They can't even
see what vlan their network gets.
