Subject RE: XenServer nested on XenServer

Hi Ryota,

A lot here depends on the 'outside' XenServer's openvswiches ability to pass traffic to a
MAC that it can't see. And with the trunking of VLANs
The first test I would do is migrate the UserVM to XenServer01-002. If they can communicate
then your issue is with the outer networking.

Tim and Remi may know more about bending XenServer networking to your will, but from my general
experience:

You many well need to configure your outer XenServer (XenServer01) to use promiscuous mode
on any interfaces which the nested XenServers use. 
http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX121729
and
you'll need to ensure that tagged VLANs are passed through the guest interfaces on the parent
XenServer (XenServer01) as XenServer01-002 will tag traffic with VLAN x,y,z (guest VLAN) which
needs to be retained and passed to XenServer01-003 - I don't know how to do that for a XenServer...:(

there is also an experimental setting for nested XenServers:

Dear Paul&Remi&Tim

My networking is as follows.

The zone is Advanced mode.
I made 3 XenServers as XenServer01-001/002/003 on XenServer01.
And I could add the 3 hosts to CloudStack.
SSVM and CPVM started in XenServer01-001.
So, I could deploy UserVM in XenServer01-002 and VR(DHCP) in XenServer01-003.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ManagementServer(172.168.100.110)
|
|
(PhysicalNetwork)
|
|
XenServer01(172.168.100.100)
  ------------------------------------
   XenServer01-001(172.168.100.101)  <--SSVM/CPVM
   XenServer01-002(172.168.100.102)  <--VR(DHCP)
   XenServer01-003(172.168.100.103)  <--UserVM
  ------------------------------------
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


But, it could not access between the UserVM and the VR.
I wander if VLAN is not granted because of the nested XenServer.

~~~~~~~~~~
VR -OK-> XenServer01-002 -OK-> XenServer01 -NG??-> XenServer01-003 --> UserVM
~~~~~~~~~~

Regards
