Before Installing the Software


Perform the following steps before installing and configuring Oracle SDN Virtual Network
Services:
Install Oracle VM Server on the physical system that is used for hosting VMs.
Using Oracle VM Manager:
Set up all VMs that are used to host Oracle SDN Virtual Network Services.
Assign static IP addresses to all virtual interfaces in all Oracle SDN Virtual Network
Services hosting VM.
On the Oracle VM Server (if used on Oracle Linux):
Disable the gro (Generic Receive Offload) option on all physical network interfaces.
Disable the lro (Large Receive Offload) option on all physical network interfaces.
On the Oracle VM Server (if used on Oracle Solaris):
Disable the lso (Large Segment Offload) option on all physical network interfaces.
On the VMs (if used on Oracle Linux):
Disable the tso (TCP Segmentation Offload) option on all virtual network interfaces of
all VMs.
For example:

Late-Breaking Information and Known Issues 17


Known Issues

# ethtool -K eth0 tso off


On the VMs (if used on Oracle Solaris):
Disable the lso (Large Segmentation Offload) option on all virtual network interfaces of
all VMs.
For example:

# ndd -set /dev/ip ip_lso_outbound 0


If the Oracle Fabric Manager server and the Oracle SDN Virtual Network Services
VM are located on different subnets, then a default route is needed on the Oracle SDN
Virtual Network Services VM, for the VM subnet to reach the OFM subnet. Add this
default route on the Oracle SDN Virtual Network Services hosting VM before the
Oracle SDN Virtual Network Services package is installed.

Limitations of VNS Running on VMs Installed with Oracle


Solaris
This release supports Oracle Solaris. Consider the following issues:
HA GroupID 1 and 255 are reserved. Do not use these values when configuring HA groups.
For Oracle Solaris VNS VMs, HA supports only one master and one backup server.
Multiple backup servers are not supported.
In HA, when a failed master server returns to service, it might take a backup role. There is
no impact to the user's experience.
Before uninstalling the software package, disable VNS with this command:
svcadm disable vns-svc
When using IPsec with HA, the client needs to flush the key when failover and failback
occurs before it can communicate with the peer using the IPsec tunnel.
Oracle Solaris x86 is not supported in this release.
Only one IPsec tunnel can be activated at a given time.

How do I confirm that software rpm package is


installed on the VM in Oracle Linux?
From Oracle Linux prompt of the Oracle SDN Virtual Network Services hosting VM:

# rpm -qa | grep vns

Look for osdn-vns-1.0.1-1.x86_64.

In Oracle Linux, why am I unable to connect OFM


to VNS?
Confirm that VNS is running. Typically this issue happens because a reboot was not performed
after the software rpm was installed.

22 Oracle SDN Virtual Network Services 1.0.2 Product Notes June 2016
Frequently Asked Questions

How do I confirm that VNS is running on an Oracle


Linux VM, if I'm unable to connect to VNS through
OFM?
From Oracle Linux prompt of the Oracle SDN Virtual Network Services hosting VM, check
status with the following command:

# service vns-svc status

How do I reset VNS, if I'm unable to connect to


VNS through OFM?
From Oracle Linux prompt of the Oracle SDN Virtual Network Services hosting VM:

# service vns-svc restart

After HA is configured, how do I verify which


server is the master or backup, if I'm unable to
connect to VNS through OFM?
From Oracle Linux prompt of the Oracle SDN Virtual Network Services hosting VM:

# ps -ef | grep vns

If the node is a master, it displays the following:

# /bin/bash /usr/local/vns/bin/ha-mgt-master.sh

If the node is a backup, it displays the following:

# /bin/bash /usr/local/vns/bin/ha-mgt-backup.sh

Late-Breaking Information and Known Issues 23


Frequently Asked Questions

Why would OFM display a Connection refused


message when adding a VNS instance?
The VM that is hosting VNS might not have an HTTP server running. Verify that the HTTP
server is enabled, up, and running.
