Deploy network configurations using network templates

Deploy network configurations using network templatesΒΆ

By default, Fuel configures the following networks (Linux bridges): Public, Private, Storage, Admin (PXE), and Management. In addition, if you install the OpenStack Bare Metal service, Fuel creates the Baremetal network. If you need to add a custom network or do not need any of the default networks, you can configure or delete the required networks through network templates.

Network templates enable you to:

  • Create a custom set of networks.
  • Create mappings of network roles to networks.
  • Use a network on a specific node only if a corresponding node role is configured on the node
  • Implement custom networking topologies, such as sub-interface bonding, and so on.
