display network on same lan as rhevm?

Latest response

Hello,

having only one plain network for tests...

Does it make sense to still create a display network on another pair of adapters, putting them on the same network as rhevm one?

Or will this create problems?

If ok, what would be best parameter for guest logical network (none vs static)?

 

Thanks in advance,

Gianluca

Isn't it going to introduce some routing problems? An incoming packet to the display ip may get its response from the "rhevm" ip  as the src IP or vice-versa and may be dropped at the other end unless we do advanced routing which is not possbile in rhevh.

It's always recommended to have guest logical network "none" and use rhevm to access the hypervisor.

It was my suspect too...

I'll check to get a different lan....

Thanks

If you use different logical network using IPs from the same LAN for guest network and display network, that would work. You just need to make sure that "guest" network is brought up without an IP address so that it will not be part of routing in rhev-h. Mixing rhevm and display network may cause problems since both need to be brought up with an IP address in rhev-h.

Is it sufficient to keep the NIC IP addresses in different subnets?  Or, do you have to keep them in different (V)LANs?

Either different subnet or different vlan is fine.
