During onboarding from public cloud, the platform will onboard existing private networks and public IP addresses (in providers that support them, such as AWS and Azure).
You can obtain public IPs from the provider and assign them to your virtual datacenters and VMs.
Amazon may charge for Elastic IP addresses as soon as you reserve them for your virtual datacenter. Therefore you should reserve your IP addresses just before you deploy and check they are deleted when you undeploy your VMs.
To add public IP addresses to your virtual datacenter, so that you can later assign them to your VMs:
Now when you edit a VM in the VDC and go to Network → Public, you will see the public IP address and you can add it to your VM.
To refresh and onboard any public IP addresses that were already created in your cloud provider, click the Synchronize public IPs button.
When you create a virtual datacenter, the platform will automatically create a default or custom private network for the virtual datacenter.
To create a private network in your virtual datacenter, click thebutton and complete the form below.
To create new IP addresses in your private network, click the Add button in the top right-hand corner of the Private IPs page. You can also create IPs automatically, directly in the Edit VM popup.
To edit a private network, select the network, then click the Edit buttonabove the Networks list:
You can change the network name, gateway, DNS settings, and make the network the new default for this virtual datacenter.
Changes will apply to all VMs deployed after you click Save.
If you deploy a VM without assigning a NIC, Abiquo will add one in the virtual datacenter's default network.
To set a new or existing network as the default, when creating or editing the network, select the Default network checkbox. The new default network will apply to all VMs deployed after you set it.
You can delete a private VLAN if no VMs are using its IPs and it is not the default network. To delete a private VLAN, select it and click the Delete buttonabove the Networks list.
