In this video, learn how to prepare for a software defined network installation. This includes making sure you have the right operating system, installed roles, hardware, and networking setup to complete an SDN environment.
- [Narrator] Let's start planning…for our software-defined network.…And first, we'll begin with our operating system.…If we want to take advantage of all the latest features,…we're going to want to be on Windows Server 2016 or newer.…After that, we need to install the Hyper-V role…in order to set up this segmented network…we've been discussing.…And after that, we've got to have a virtual switch…to add in, so that way we can segment our network…using software-defined networking.…
Next, we have physical requirements.…Software-defined network servers…are what we call compute hosts.…We've already been discussing Hyper-V hosts.…But when we talk about software-defined networking,…we refer to the servers as compute hosts…because they share more than just their hard drive.…They also share processors.…They share RAM.…They share all different types of resources.…We want to make sure we're on at least…a 1.4 gigahertz processor with 32 gigabytes…of hard drive space and 512 megabytes of RAM.…
However, that would be the absolute minimum.…
Note: This course is the first of two that will cover SDN in a Server 2016 network. This course maps to the SDN deployment objectives in Exam 70-745.
- Planning an SDN
- Configuring a Hyper-V switch
- Creating network objects in Virtual Machine Manager
- Creating IP pools and VM networks
- Creating logical switches and uplink ports
- Configuring an edge gateway
- Creating multitenant VMs
