Creating a Virtual Network


This topic describes how to create virtual networks in Windows Contrail deployment.

  1. Navigate to Overlay > Virtual Networks > Create Virtual Network in Contrail Command UI and create a virtual network with IP pool.
  2. After the virtual network is created, run the following command on Windows compute node to create a local Contrail network:


    $tenant is the name of your tenant in Contrail,

    $network is the name of your network in Contrail,

    $subnet is subnet CIDR (e.g. This parameter must be specified, if you Contrail network has multiple subnets defined.

    $localnetwork is an arbitrary name that docker network should have on local compute node.

  3. Specify the parameter --ipam-driver windows to override docker's default IPAM driver with a noop driver.

    To remove a network, use the docker network remove command. You cannot remove a network that has active endpoints.


    This operation does not remove the virtual network in Contrail. To remove a virtual network you need to log in to Contrail Web UI.
