Details on BOS GRAM Rack Installation and Configuration

This is an internal development rack. Not for public use.

Hardware Configuration

BOS is a rack consisting of the following hardware components:

  • 5 Dell PowerEdge R510 server hosts. Of these, we have configured
    • 1 as the OpenStack control node (boscontroller.gpolab.bbn.com)
    • 3 as OpenStack compute nodes (boscompute1.gpolab.bbn.com, boscompute2.gpolab.bbn.com, boscompute4.gpolab.bbn.com).
    • 1 that is currently unused (it is not configured with enough NICs)
  • 1 Cisco 2901 Integrated Services Route for access to the external internet through the GENI lab SW Config Manual GigEthernet Config
  • 1 HP ProCurve 6600-48G-4Xg OpenFlow switch. Manuals

Network Configuration

We have established the following addresses for the different servers, and connected them to the following ports on the switch and router:

HostControl Plane AddressRouter Port (Control Plane)External AddressRouter Port (External Plane)Management AddressRouter Port (Management Plane)Data Plane AddressSwitch Port (Data Plane)
boscontroller1010.8.1003/6128.89.91.1701/110.10.6.1003/010.10.5.10016
boscompute110.10.8.1013/5128.89.91.1711/310.10.6.1013/110.10.5.1018
boscompute210.10.8.1023/4128.89.91.1721/210.10.6.1023/310.10.5.10234
boscompute410.10.8.1043/2128.89.91.1741/510.10.6.1041/410.10.5.10424

The external gateway from the rack is at 128.89.91.162.

The ports on the HP ProCurve switch used for transporting data plane traffic (8, 16, 24, 34) are configured as tagged VLAN's 1000-1010.

Software Configuration

BOS has a standard GRAM configuration, with one compute host (boscontroller) and three compute nodes (boscompute1, boscompute2 and boscompute3). The configuration file (/etc/gram/config.json) represent this configuration the the external and control plane addresses and VLAN ranges described above.
