Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-4152) 2.8. About Physical Networks could be clearer
Date Wed, 07 Aug 2013 14:58:47 GMT
Ron Wheeler created CLOUDSTACK-4152:

             Summary: 2.8. About Physical Networks could be clearer
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-4152
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: Doc
    Affects Versions: 4.1.1
         Environment: all

            Reporter: Ron Wheeler

Networking seems to be the biggest problem that new users have in getting started.

1) This page needs some diagrams to make it easier to understand what is being described.
There are some magical statements or statements about something that the administrator must
do with no reference to a section describing how to do it or when it must be done.

2) CIDR is used without any definition or explanation.
3) The user is told that IP addresses need to be allocated without any suggestion of how this
is done. This needs to be clarified. 

4) It might be useful to split this page into at least 2 pages - Basic and Advanced.
In the Basic, it would be helpful to describe in some detail the most common test or small
organization environments. 
The audience here is a system administrator that has a broad but not too deep knowledge of
Someone with 2-5 servers behind a simple firewall with 1-5 public IP addresses. I suggest
writing the first draft for a person with 1 public IP address behind a simple firewall and
see how hard it is to extend that to multiple public IPs without getting into an advanced

The Advanced is more complex but it is also easier to describe since you can assume that the
audience is a network administrator who has a lot more in-depth knowledge of networing, routers,
VLANs, etc.
