Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-645) add/remove network on VM
Date Thu, 24 Jan 2013 01:58:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-645?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13561347#comment-13561347
] 

Mice Xia commented on CLOUDSTACK-645:
-------------------------------------

we are doing the same thing but only for VMware, some comments that maybe helpful and FYI:

* VMware tools seem to be required for hot unplug, or the device removal task will not take
effect on vcenter side.
* Users may need to initiate DHCP request manually (such as run dhclient) after NIC change
, in order to update route table, get IP address for new NIC, etc.

> We would like the ability to move VMs between networks and/or reconfigure a VM's network,
in order to accomodate hybrid/traditional server loads. We've implemented 3 API calls and
would like to submit these for the community to edit/adjust/approve. The three calls are 'addNicToVirtualMachine','removeNicFromVirtualMachine',
and 'updateDefaultNicForVirtualMachine'. One provides a VM Id and a network id, default Nics
cannot be removed. The names might need adjustment to better fit the API, perhaps 'attachNetworkToVirtualMachine',
etc.  Looking for feedback, advice, potential pitfalls... does a feature branch need to be
created or just a review?
