Subject Re: Security Group support in Advance zone
Date Thu, 15 Nov 2012 06:54:48 GMT

I have couple of queries on the requirements listed in the spec.

- "Shared Zone Wide SG Enabled Guest network is required  in Advance SG
enabled zone as CPVM/SSVM are using it."
I am not clear why CPVM/SSVM will use the shared guest network with SG.

- "No Isolated networks can be added to the Advance SG enabled zone. No
Shared Domain wide networks are allowed either."

Does this mean, there will be only one shared network in the entire SG
enabled zone? You mentioned relaxing some of these restriction as future
release plans, but was wondering why such stringent restriction. Does
overlapping CIDR's of multiple isolated network will conflict with the
security groups functionality at hypervisor level?
