X-Ray use docker


Badge +2
Hello

Starting to work with x-ray, I have realised that it use docker and like usual with docker ... it use as internal network our network range (took me few secs understand why I could not connect to vcenter)

Of course it is easy to put a daemon.json in place and reboot but maybe some reference in user doc would help other to plan and prepare no ?

It actually uses the host network mode within the VM, so really it's just passed through. Could you elaborate on what you had to to do make it work?

Docker use it own network in a bridge. By default it consumes a confortable 172.17.0.0/16 that we notice because we use 172.17.14.0/24 for our vcenter

https://docs.docker.com/v17.09/engine/userguide/networking/default_network/custom-docker0/

explain how to reconfigure.

After a reboot (more faster than online reconfiguration), x-ray works unless you use metro availability, but this is another story
