Hi ,

I am trying to understand the neutron LBAAS API 2.0 object model but I have following doubt with respect to configuration.

  1. Can we configure VIP and pool member on different subnet .For ex VIP on provider network/tenant A network and pool member on tenant A network.
  2. Can we add pool members from different subnet but same tenant to a pool, as pool object does not contain subnet ID.
  3. Where does any lbaas object validation takes place- plugin ,agent, driver?

Help of any type will be appreciated.

Thanks, Deepa.

It should be possible to add members from different subnets as ping/http/tcp is for checking the member status. If packet forwarding method is used (like in Piranha load balancer) then all the member IPs should be in same subnet.

Sorry I am not clear. Do u mean we can add different subnet member to same pool and if so then what should be load balance VIP subnet.

What will be the source IP while sending HM packet to pool members?
