Subject Re: Issues with advanced zone setup networking
Date Wed, 27 Feb 2013 10:41:17 GMT

To use Advanced Networking you have to use Tagged VLANs.

When a VM is unable to get an IP from its Virtual Router running on a different Host, it is
always down to VLANs.

Whilst you can create the Public Network as untagged, the Guest Network HAS to be tagged.

Hi All,

   We have setup an Advanced Zone on Cloudstack 4.0 which 3 hosts running

The problem we are currently facing is that if the VM, starts on a
different host is unable to obtain the IP's from the virtual router for the
specific n/w.

We are using untagged vlans and layer 2 switches.
Has anyone else faced the same issues?

Is there a way to resolve it?
