Configure a virtual IP subnet for the Data network. You can place virtual services on a specific virtual IP network. Configure static IP addresses for the Controller and Service Engines. You can configure DCHP for the Service Engines. If DHCP is unavailable, configure a pool of IP addresses.

Procedure

  1. In the Avi Controller dashboard, click menu in the upper-left hand corner and select Infrastructure.
  2. Click Network, to display the list of networks on vCenter.
  3. Locate the network that provides the virtual IP addresses and click the edit icon to edit the network settings.
    For example, Data-VLAN1068.
  4. Deselect DHCP Enabled as IPAM provides the addresses for the virtual IP network.
    If DHCP is available on the Data-VLAN1068 portgroup, select this option.
  5. Deselect the Exclude Discovered Subnets for Virtual Service Placement. Deselecting this option enables you to use the configured subnet for virtual IP address placement.
    The Controller discovers the networks and the IP subnets.
  6. If the controller discovers an IP subnet and its type, perform the following steps:
    1. Click the edit icon of the discovered network.
    2. Select Add Static IP Address Pool.
    3. Enter one or more IP addresses or IP address ranges.
      For example, 10.202.35.1-10.202.35.254.
      Note: You can enter an IP address that ends with 0. For example, 192.168.0.0 and ignore any warning that appears.
    4. Click Save.
  7. If the Controller does not discover an IP subnet and its type, perform the following steps:
    1. Click Add Subnet.
    2. In IP Subnet, enter the CIDR of the network that provides the virtual IP addresses.
      For example, 10.202.35.0/22
    3. Select Add Static IP Address Pool.
    4. Enter one or more IP addresses or IP address ranges.
      The range must be a subset of the network CIDR in IP Subnet. For example, 10.202.35.1-10.202.35.254.
      Note: You can enter an IP address that ends with 0. For example, 192.168.0.0 and ignore any warning that appears.
    5. Click Save.
    The Network Settings page lists the IP Subnet with type Configured and an IP address pool.
  8. Click Save.

Results

The Network page lists the configured networks.

Example

The MGMT-VLAN1009 network displays the discovered network as 10.202.32.0/22 and configured subnets as 10.202.32.0/22 [254/254]. This indicates that 254 virtual IP addresses come from 10.202.32.0/22. Note that the summary view does not list the IP range 10.202.35.1-10.202.35.254.
