Subject Re: Separate Management and Primary Storage

The way I’m understanding this then is the following:
- Have a NIC on the same subnet that storage is on KVM
- Then based on IP you enter into primary settings it should use the right NIC
- There is not a way to fully define the exact NIC to be a primary storage NIC. Just IP and
Subnet for matching card as long as it’s not defined for other KVM Labels

Is that accurate?

Thank you

    It should be based on the ip address of the nfs server you defined. Is your storage on
a different subnet?

    Thank you. When I attempted that, it kept trying to reach primary storage over the Cloudbr0
that I specified for management on the KVM hosts.
    
    Is there any labeling or bridge I need to do in KVM? Or will it use the open card? I guess
how does it know which open interface to use for primary storage?

        Just connect the storage via a different physical network (or vlan) to the hosts.
You don't need to do any tagging in ACS management for it. The host agents talk to the storage,
so as long as the agent can see the primary storage, you should be good to go.

        Currently NFS, but I'm waiting to add Ceph until this is figured out.

            Nassar,
    
    
            What type of primary storage are you using?

            Hello,
    
            Can somebody please provide the steps to separate Management traffic from Primary
Storage with KVM?
    
            I've deployed a storage label but that's only for secondary storage. So how do
I do that with Primary storage? Can I add it back to an existing Advanced zone? Or Do I need
to deploy a new one?
    
            Cloudstack docs say it's basically another management interface on a whole other
subnet. But how do you add that and define another management on KVM? No option in the zone
to add another mgmt. interface. We are currently on version 4.8.
    
            Thank You
