Subject Re: Virtual Router Network Service Restrictions
Date Wed, 13 Mar 2013 01:46:24 GMT
Hi Sheng,

CCing you in case this slipped through first time around in the flood of
cloudstack-dev mail. :)

Joe explains more below, but the core of this is if you look at

        if (!services.contains(Service.SourceNat)) {
            if (services.contains(Service.StaticNat) ||
services.contains(Service.Firewall) || services.contains(Service.Lb) ||
                    services.contains(Service.PortForwarding) ||
services.contains(Service.Vpn)) {
                s_logger.warn("Virtual router can't enable services " +
servicesList + " without source NAT service");

It looks like this restriction came in with a commit of yours
(46a12b378c288d27d86c9c885534f1309fee0f63), and we're not sure why the
restriction exists - could you give us some background?
