This article describes how to setup and configure a Zentera ZNS appliance from AWS Marketplace.
Launch an ZNS instance from AWS Marketplace. Ensure that the ZNS has a public IP address.
Ensure that the Security Group and ACL has the following ports open:
443/tcp from 0.0.0.0/0. This port is used to establish data connections.
4433/tcp inbound from your zCenter appliance. This port is used by zCenter to establish a control channel for management of the ZNS.
22/tcp. Ssh is used to configure the ZNS node; choose a suitable source IP address range.
Configuring the ZNS
zCenter Portal Configuration
Login to your zCenter portal and navigate to "Advanced Management > Service Management > ZNS Clustering"
If you have not yet created a ZNS Cluster, click "Create a new ZNS Cluster". Enter a name for your new cluster, and click the OK button.
Click "Add ZNS Node" link for the cluster
Enter the public IP address of the ZNS instance in "Control Channel IP / Hostname" and "Preferred Data Path IP / Hostname"
Click "Show Info" link for the node created
Select and copy the "ZNS ID to enable cluster in zCLI" key (red text)
Enabling the ZNS Instance
Login to the ZNS instance (ec2-user) and run the following commands:
cd /zentera/bin/network-daemon sudo ./cluster.sh enable --mcg-host=<zcenter URL> --shared-key=<ZNS ID>
Note: ZNS ID is the key copied from zCenter in step 7 above.
If the procedure is successful, you will see a green Status indicator in the zCenter portal.
Disabling the ZNS Instance
If you need to disable the ZNS instance, you may run the following command:
sudo ./cluster.sh disable
