Subject Re: Getting CRAZY for having a cloud working!
Date Wed, 02 Jan 2013 23:24:15 GMT
Hallo.
On the host I have 2 ethernet NICs and 2 HBAs. In XenCenter I see them as
"network 0" and "network 1". In XenCenter I renamed "network 0" as "MGMT"
and disabled the flag to automatically assign it to VMs, and "network 1" to
"VNET", because I want it to be dedicated to VMs. Then, when creating
Physical Network, I gave it name VNET (globally) and assigned to blue icon
(internal management traffic) the MGMT label, and to green icon (VMs
traffic) VNET label. I didn't include red icon (storage) because it should
be via HBAs. Are these settings wrong? I set primary storage as "PreSetup"
and gave same SR-label used in XenCenter to identify it. Is it ok?
