VCD 5.1 Routing Question

Trying to deploy the VCD 5.1 Virtual appliance.  I have each assigned each nic to a different VLAN.  I can ping IP 1 from VLAN 1 and IP 2 from VLAN 2, but if i try and ping from a 3rd VLAN, i can only ping the IP with the default route set.

Is this the desired functionality or am i missing something?

Isn't that how linux kernel reverse-path filter works?

Try disabling the reverse path filter by setting one or all of these to 0

[root@centos /proc/sys/net/ipv4]# find ./ | grep /rp_filter
./conf/eth0/rp_filter
./conf/lo/rp_filter
./conf/default/rp_filter
./conf/all/rp_filter

Depending on what you are trying to achieve this may be a good one too: http://www.hypervizor.com/2011/07/publishing-the-vcloud-director-portal-on-the-internet/

Usually what we see is either

- two vNICs in the same subnet for http, vmrc and backend traffic to vCenter etc (in this case the default route will just work fine) or

- two vNICs in the same subnet for http and vmrc and a third vNIC for backend traffic to vCenter etc (in this case the def route will be for the front-end vNICs and manual routes should be added to reach the back-end subnets if they are behind a firewall).
