ORCA and VLANs

Creation of slices in ORCA consisting of edge VMs connected by VLANs should consist of the following steps

  1. Pick new VLAN tag ID
    • say it is 505
  2. Access routers/switches on the path and configure the path for the VLAN. Assume links between network equipment and nodes are trunked.
  3. Select nodes on which VMs will reside
  4. Create bridges in each node for this slice
    • brctl addbr bridge-for-slice1
  5. Create tagged interfaces in each node for the VLAN in this slice
    • vconfig add eth0 505
    • ifconfig eth0.505 up
  6. Attach VLAN interface to the bridge
    • brctl addif bridge-for-slice1 eth0.505
  7. Enable slice bridge
    • ifconfig bridge-for-slice1 up
  8. Create appropriate configurations for VMs
    • second interface should have 'bridge=<slice bridge name> option set, to make sure that vif#.# for the data interface in the VM gets attached to the bridge
  9. Create VMs
  10. Assign IP addresses to the data interfaces in the VM
  11. Test
