Network administration

An HCP system can be configured to support virtual networking. Virtual networking enables the segregation of network traffic between clients and different HCP tenants, between management and data access functions, and between system-level and tenant-level traffic. This segregation enhances the privacy and security of communications over the HCP front-end network.

To implement virtual networking (if the system is configured to support it), you define one or more networks. You then configure the system to use specific networks for specific functions.

This chapter contains:

An overview of the default HCP networks

An overview of virtual networking with HCP

An explanation of the Networks page in the HCP System Management Console

Instructions for creating, modifying, and deleting networks and network aliases

Instructions for enabling and disabling a network

Instructions for restarting a network

Instructions for displaying the DNS zone definitions for one or more network domains


Important: This chapter assumes you already have a solid understanding of network virtualization and experience with configuring physical and logical network components.
