Subject Re: Basic networking using a separate physical nic for guest traffic
Date Sat, 13 Jun 2015 22:16:58 GMT
Can't really say I'm familiar with that setting, so it's hard to say what
kind of implications you get from it.

What I usually do is find the uuid of the network I want to use within
cloudstack with "xe network-list", and give it a name-label with
"xe-network-param-set uuid=<FROM PREVIOUS> name-label=<WHATEVER I WANNA
And that's it.
If necessary I create the bond first, but in the case of single nic
networks I use the network that's related to the nic.

One thing though, your SSVM isn't doing any guest traffic, thus it
shouldn't be on any guest networks.

You most likely want to add a storage network.
