From the left navigation menu, select Network Access and then Virtual IP Pools.
Click + Create VIP Pool and complete the fields:
Enter a name for the VIP Pool.
If your storage clients are on multiple subnets and you are routing your client storage traffic through a local gateway device, enter the gateway IP.
Start IP (required)
Enter the IP at the start of the range.
End IP (required)
Enter the IP at the end of the range.
Subnet CIDR (required)
Specify the subnet in Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR) notation.
In CIDR notation, the subnet is expressed as the number of bits of each IP address that represent the subnet address. For example, the subnet mask 255.255.255.0 is expressed as 24 in CIDR notation.
If you want to tag the VIP pool with a specific VLAN on the data network, enter the VLAN number (0-4096). See also Tagging VIP Pools with VLANs.
If you want to dedicate a specific group of CNodes to the VIP pool, open the drop-down and select all the CNodes you want to include in the group. The VIPs in this pool will only be distributed among the selected CNodes.
If you do not specify any CNodes, the pool will be distributed among all active CNodes.
If using the VAST Cluster DNS server, specify a domain short name to associate with the VIP pool for DNS resolution. The domain suffix defined in the DNS server configuration is appended to the domain name to form a FQDN.
The domain name can be used to define a subdomain for the VIP pool.
For example: domain1
The virtual IP pool is saved. IP addresses from the pool are assigned automatically to the CNodes. You can view the assigned virtual IPs per CNode on the Virtual IPs tab.
On the Virtual IP Pools tab, click to open the Actions menu for the VIP pool and select Edit.
Make your changes and click Update.
