VLAN

Overview

This article explains network settings when using VLAN (KVM & XenServer)

How to enable VLAN

Go to Admin Panel -> Create IP Pool

Note: VLAN is supported for KVM and XenServer virtualization.

  • Gateway : As provided by the data center.
  • Netmask : As provided by the data center.
  • VLAN : Please check the Enable VLAN option.
  • VLAN Bridge : Enter vlan bridge as configured on the server.
  • Adding IP : Please add ip range to the pool .

Note : VLAN is supported for KVM and XenServer virtualization.
VLAN bridge must have an IP address assigned (even a dummy IP will work)
This will avoid known issue where VPS using VLAN network do not get their IPs configured through DHCP

Note: VLAN configuration is not done by Virtualizor and it should be configured by your system / network admin. Virtualizor will just use the VLAN bridge name in VPS configuration.

Following is the sample configuration file for VLAN.

~]# vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-vlan.192
DEVICE=bond0.192
BOOTPROTO=none
ONPARENT=yes
#IPADDR=192.168.10.1
#NETMASK=255.255.255.0
VLAN=yes
NM_CONTROLLED=no
BRIDGE=br0

NOTE: Above sample is just an example for VLAN bridge file, it may vary as per your datacenter configuration. Please contact your datacenter for setting up VLAN on your server.
