Hello All,

 

       I have added a managed network in our cluster. We have since purchased another cluster and in the process of configuring VXLan and the ability to live migrate VM’s between clusters. From what I have been seeing we cannot have a managed network across clusters is this correct? If not does anyone know how to configure a managed network to work between clusters.

Thanks,

Scott

Today Flow virtual networking is not supported on AWS

PM has view on this issue. Most of the current networking effort has been focused on Azure.

Sorry maybe I was not clear in my original post. We have 2 AHV clusters in 2 different data centers we own. So it is not shipping to a cloud resource, rather between my 2 clusters.

You posted in the NC2 fourm. You would have to strentch the network between both clusters on-prem

My bad. Thanks for pointing that out. I can stretch the network via VXLan; however, it is unclear if I can share the managed network database of IP’s between the networks. So for example if I create a VM on Site A with a managed network and move it to Site B it should be fine as long as I have stretched the network. From what I understand of managed networks this VM will no longer be in the database so this IP will get handed out again. At this point I would have an IP conflict. I can move this to the correct forum as well if needed.

i am not expert but I believe you need to have 2 non overlapping dhcp pools, one on each cluster and it should work
