Notes about reserved private IPs for vCenter with DVS
- Prior to the first deploy of an Abiquo VM in an Abiquo private network, in order to add a reserved IP to a VM, you would need to create your own port group (tag/DVS) with the next tag in the rack sequence and the Abiquo naming convention, which is “network_name_tag”, for example, “private_network_11”. Creating your own port group is not recommended.
- When a user deploys the first Abiquo VM in a private network, Abiquo checks for an existing network that uses the Abiquo naming convention, or creates a new one.
- Abiquo will not manage private IPs added to VMs outside of the platform.
- When a user undeploys the last Abiquo VM in a private network, if there are no other VMs with IP addresses in the network, Abiquo will delete the port group.
