Networks

Infrastructure -> Network -> Networks

Overview

The Networks section is for configuring networks across all clouds in Morpheus . Existing networks from the Clouds added in Morpheus will auto-populate in the Networks section.

Networks can be configured for DHCP or Static IP assignment, assigned IP pools, and configured for visibility and account assignment for multi-tenancy usage. Networks can also be set as inactive and unavailable for provisioning use.

Configuring Networks

DHCP

To configure a network for DHCP:

  1. Navigate to Infrastructure -> Network -> Networks
  2. Search for the target network
  3. Edit the Network by either:
    • Select Actions -> Edit
    • Select the Network, then select Edit
  4. In the Network Config modal, set the DHCP flag as Active (default)
  5. Save Changes

Important

The DHCP flag tells Morpheus this network has a DHCP server assigning IP Addresses to hosts. Morpheus does not act as the DHCP server, and provisioning to a network that has the DHCP server flag active in Morpheus , but no DHCP server actually on the network will in most cases cause the instance to not receive an IP address.

Note

When selecting a network with DHCP enabled during provisioning, “DHCP” will populate to the right of the selected network:

Static and IP Pools

To configure a network for Static IP Assignment:

  1. Navigate to Infrastructure -> Network -> Networks
  2. Search for the target network
  3. Edit the Network by either:
    • Select Actions -> Edit
    • Select the Network, then select Edit
  4. In the Network Config modal, add the following:
    • Gateway
    • DNS Primary
    • DNS Secondary
    • CIDR ex 10.10.10.0/22
    • VLAN ID (if necessary)
    • Network Pool * Leave as “choose a pool” for entering a static IP while provisioning * Select a Pool to use a pre-configured Morpheus or IPAM Integration IP Pool
    • The Permissions settings are used for Multi-Tenant resource configuration
      • Leave settings as default if used in a single-tenant environment (only one Tenant in your Morpheus appliance)
      • To share this network across all accounts in a multi-tenant environment, select the Master Tenant and set the Visibility to Public
      • To assign this network to be used by only one account in a multi-tenant environment, select the account and set visibility to Private
    • Active
      • Leave as enabled to use this network
      • Disable the active flag to remove this network from available network options
  5. Save Changes

Note

When selecting a network with DHCP disabled and no IP Pool assigned during provisioning, an IP entry field will populate to the right of the selected network(s):

Note

When selecting a network with an IP Pool assigned during provisioning, the name of the IP pool will populate to the right of the selected network(s). IP Pools override DHCP.

Advanced Options (Scan Network)

When adding or editing a network there is an option to scan network. If checked scan network will ping the IP’s in the network range, and if ping is successful Morpheus will quickly check for listening ports on the IP.

Important

Network scanning may cause network monitoring or other alerts

Subnets

Subnet details can be viewed from the SUBNETS tab on the detail page of a specific network. From the SUBNETS tab, Morpheus allows the user to search and edit existing subnets. In an Azure VNet, you can also create new subnets with the +ADD button.
