The subnets page can be accessed via the infrastructure menu:
Infrastructure > Subnets
For orcharhino to manage any hosts, it needs to know about the networks (or subnets) those hosts will be in. The subnets page exists to manage the available networks.
The subnet page lists all available subnets. Additionally, you may create a new subnet or alter an existing one.
Creating a Subnet¶
Clicking the Create Subnet button opens the menu to setup a subnet.
Clicking Create Subnet (1) opens a new page to create a new subnet.
The page shown above lets you input the subnet’s configuration data. It needs a name as well as a network address, network prefix, and network mask. Optionally, you may choose to set a gateway address and primary and secondary DNS server. IPAM lets you decide between static IP addresses and DHCP, i.e. automatically assign IP addresses to new hosts.
There are several more tabs (1) to further configure the subnet.
Clicking the Submit button (2) will submit the information.
The actual creation of the subnet needs to be handled on the network the orcharhino and the hosts run on. This may be your cloud provider, your virtualization solution, or hardware based via a network switch. The button is simply setting up orcharhino to utilize said subnet.
