This document describes the network administration functions necessary for configuring a Bayware network via a web interface. The steps below guide the administrator through the creation of users and subnets.
Step 1. Login¶
After installing the Controller, access its web interface at https://www.controller.net. Enter default credentials
- Domain: default
- User: admin
- Password: demo-net
Step 2. Configure Technical (or Resource) Users¶
Select the desired domain from the list under Domain and click the Add user button under Resource Users menu item. The user profile fields are
- user login, maximum 30 characters
- username, maximum 30 characters
- user domain
- select domain where user will operate
- user status
- choose between Enabled and Disabled
- user auth method
- LocalAuth in local database or LDAPAuth at directory server (inherited from domain authentication type)
- select roles for user: hostOwner or switchOwner (inherited from selected domain)
- password, repeat password
- user password
Created user credentials should be used in switches and host configuration files (see corresponding installation guides).
Step 3. Automatic Host Connection¶
Add a subnet in the Admin - Subnets section.
Specify all mandatory fields and determine Management Network.
- subnet name
- name of subnet, maximum 30 characters
- subnet description
- subnet description, maximum 255 characters
- subnet CGA prefix
- IPv6 address prefix, consisting of a three-byte, hexadecimal format separated by colons e.g., 01:02:03
- primary controller
- select primary controller for subnet
- secondary controller
- select secondary controller for subnet
On the Subnet details page in the Management Network settings, specify a switch to which Bayware-enabled hosts must set up connection.
To automatically create a connection during the host registration procedure, a host’s IP Address must belong to Management IP Subnet.
