Create Network

To add a new network:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Settings menu.
  2. Click the Networks icon: the screen that appears shows every network available in your cloud.
  3. Click the Add New Network button at the end of the list.
  4. On the screen that follows, specify the following network details:
    • Label - choose a name for the network. The network label is simply your choice of a human-readable name – "public", "external", "1Gb", "10Gb" etc.
    • VLAN - fill in a VLAN number. The VLAN field only needs to be given a value if you are tagging the IP addresses you will add to this network with a VLAN ID (IEEE 802.1Q). If you plan to tag IP addresses in this way, you need to make sure the link to the public interface on the Compute resources is a trunked network port. If you are not VLAN tagging addresses, this field can be left blank and the public port on the Compute resource can be an access port.
    • Network Zone - assign the network to a network zone if required
  5. Click the Add Network button to finish.

Once you have added a network to OnApp you will need to add an IP address range to the new network.

To use the network, you have to assign it either to a Compute resource or a Compute zone.

Baremetal servers are not compatible with VLANs.
