Can RHEV verify that a logical network is reachable when adding it to a host?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • When RHEV brings up a logical network on a host it doesn't perform any availability checking.

  • If a VLAN is misconfigured in network switches we don't notice so until VMs that use such VLAN migrate to the affected host, at which point VMs become unreachable resulting in downtime.

  • We need RHEV to verify that logical networks are reachable before declaring those "UP" in each host.
