OpenStack External Networks
With release 16.2.2, Avi Vantage now supports using OpenStack external networks (i.e , those marked as “external=True”) as VIP and/or pool networks. If these external networks have been correctly provisioned/configured, then the VIP is directly reachable from outside OpenStack without need for a floating-IP association.
This feature is disabled by default.
To enable External Networks via the CLI,
configure cloud Default-Cloud cloud> openstack_configuration cloud:openstack_configuration> external_networks cloud:openstack_configuration> save cloud> save
Starting with Avi Vantage release 17.2, External Networks can be enabled via the UI.
