Equinix Metal project setup


Since Container Cloud 2.18.0, the public networking mode for the Equinix Metal based clusters is deprecated for the sake of the private networking mode. Deployments with public networks will become unsupported in one of the following Container Cloud releases.

Before deploying an Equinix Metal based Container Cloud cluster with public networking, ensure that local Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is enabled and properly configured for your Equinix Metal project.

To configure BGP in the Equinix Metal project:

  1. Log in to the Equinix Metal console.

  2. In IPs & Networks, select BGP.

  3. In the window that opens:

    1. Click Activate BGP on This Project.

    2. Select local type.

    3. Click Add and wait for the request to finalize.

Now, you can proceed to Verify the capacity of the Equinix Metal facility.
