    Creating a Floating IP Address Pool

    A floating IP address is an IP address (typically public) that can be dynamically assigned to a running virtual instance. You can configure floating IP address pools in project networks in Contrail, then allocate floating IP addresses from the pool to virtual machine instances in other virtual networks.

    1. Start at Configure > Networking > Networks; see Figure 1. Make sure your project is the active project in the upper right.

      Figure 1: Configure > Networking > Networks

      Configure > Networking > Networks
    2. Click the network you will associate with a floating IP pool, then in the Action column, click the action icon and select Edit.

      The Edit Network window for the selected network appears; see Figure 2.

    3. In the Floating IP Pools section, click the Pool Name field, enter a name for your floating IP pool, and click the + (plus sign) to add the IP pool to the table below the field.
      • Multiple floating IP pools can be created at the same time.
      • A floating IP pool can be associated to multiple projects.
    4. Click the Save button to create the floating IP address pool, or click Cancel to remove your work and start over.
