    PVE8.1 - SDN (problematic) experiences and and other fun with IPv6 configurations

    Good day, I have new set of clusters to be deployed in environments where I do have needs for SDN (vxlan-evpn) and loopback routes for CEPH while preparing for IPv6 only networks. Though I did got it going at one stage (IPv4 only), there are still missing pieces/processes that I'm stumbling on...

    EVPN/VXLAN between nodes on different public networks

    Hi, We're trying to create a cluster of Proxmox nodes directly connected to Internet (public IP, inexpensive servers provided by OVH). No LAN. We have 2 nodes atm, one in France (n1) and one in Germany (n2). We're inexperienced with SDN. Our objectives are : - put all VMs on the same VNet /...

    (LIR IPv6 /32 into 2x Routers) Desire: /48-per-Type, Routing to /64-per-VM & /128-per-Domain?

    Hi there, This is a bit of an edge case, though being so short on time it's taking me a while to understand the inner workings of IPv6. There's a reason they say "throw out your understanding of v4 as it has no bearing with v6", holy moly are they right! It's great but needs to be understood...

    Using the Proxmox SDN to manage host connectivity with BGP

    Hello, We're currently trying out using the Proxmox SDN to manage not only guests (using the EVPN controller), but also host connectivity using BGP to experiment with interface redundancy using L3 protocols. It's a bit spotty of course since it obviously wasn't planned for that, but I wanted to...

    BGP-EVPN SDN and DNAT across multiple hypervisor hosts

    Greetings, I have set up a test environment for BGP EVPN SDN as follows: * 3 hypervisor hosts running pve-manager/7.2-7/d0dd0e85. * Each hypervisor has a public IP and is set up as an exit node with SNAT. * Each hypervisor has a private IP that is used to create the BGP EVPN peering. The...

    [SOLVED] SDN with EVPN Controller

    Hello, I have been exploring SDN and wanted to try it on Proxmox. Right now, I have an experimental cluster with two nodes. The first thing I noticed is that there aren't the well-known SDN controllers like OpenDaylight, Ryu, and the others. And I'm not familiar with EVPN or BGP as...

    bgp evpn & vxlang: how to configure the router part?

    I was looking at this link : and the author says it could be doable using the new SDN features. Can we do it diretcly using the UI? A Also I am wondering how the IPs setups can be used by other machines to access...

    Creating custom SDN plugin?

    So I'm working on building out a Proxmox cluster to mimic our production environment. This mimicry is requiring a unusual network setup, that while I have it working, has me wanting a cleaner solution. What makes it unusual is that in our production environment, all hosts are fully L2 isolated...
