Introduction

This guide will explain how is done the control plane network configuration for the FIBRE's servers. For further information about how the network was designed, check the Architecture section.

Network

For the FIBRENet's Control Plane was choosen the following network for the FIBRE's Islands:

...

Warning

As for netmask, it's obligatory to use 16 bits.

 

Institution

...

ID

So as to segregate each Island's network, the Institutions receive an ID that correspond as the second octect used in the FIBREnet's control plane.

Info

Due to federation reasons, the ID of the brazilian institutions begin at 128.

ToR Switch Network Configuration

The configuration of the ToR Switch is the first step for the network configuration of a FIBRE Island. It's necessary to configure a VLAN, though it's not required to use a default value.

Note

If there is a need for a recommendation of a value for the control plane's VLAN, the value that RNP uses is: 60

For configuring ToR and the network address, do the following steps:

Code Block
themeMidnight
languagebash
configure
interface vlan 60
ip address 10.X.0.1/16
Warning

X stands for the Institution network ID.

Note

The value 60 was used for demonstration purpose.

After configuring the IP, it's needed to configure which ports are going to use. As a example, below is shown the configuration of RNP:

Code Block
themeMidnight
languagebash
!
interface vlan 60
 ip address 10.136.0.1/16
 set-member tagged ethernet 1/3
 set-member untagged ethernet 1/5
 set-member untagged ethernet 1/7
 set-member untagged ethernet 1/9
 set-member untagged ethernet 1/13
 set-member untagged ethernet 1/15
 set-member untagged ethernet 1/43
!

 Also for each port chosen for the VLAN, it's necessary the configure the ports. Another example from RNP is shown below:

Code Block
themeMidnight
languagebash
!
interface ethernet 1/5
 description NETFPGA_1
 switchport native vlan 60
!
interface ethernet 1/7
 description NETFPGA_2
 switchport native vlan 60
!
interface ethernet 1/9
 description NETFPGA_3

 description PERFSONAR_1
