Validation

After you have installed fortinet-neutron-lbaas 0.9.0, fortinet-openstack-agent 0.9.0, and fadc-api 5.0.0, the next step is to validate the installation to make sure that it works.

To validate your installation:

Step 1: Create a load balancer in OpenStack.

From the OpenStack GUI, select Project>Network>Load Balancers to open the Create Load Balancer page, and then follow the tabs on the left to configure the load balancer.

  1. Click the Load Balancer Details tab to configure the load balancer. (Note: The load balancer uses a Neutron network port with a subnet IP address assigned to it.)
  2. Click the Listener Details tab to configure the listener. (Note: Load balancers listen for requests on multiple ports, each of which is specified by a listener.)
  3. Click Pool Details to configure the server pool. (Note: A server pool contains a list of members(servers) that serve content through the load balancer.)
  4. Click Pool Members to add servers to the server pool. (Note: Pool members are servers that handle traffic behind a load balancer. Each member is identified by the IP address and port it uses to serve traffic.)
  5. Click Monitor Details to configure the health monitor. (Note: Health monitors keep track of the health of pool members. They divert traffic away from members that are offline or non-responsive.)

 

Step 2: Verify the load balancer configuration in FortiADC.

If your configuration of the load balancer in OpenStack is successful, the project ID that you created in OpenStack should show up in the Name column of the Virtual Domain page on the FortiADC GUI . In other words, the OpenStack project ID becomes the name of the virtual domain in FortiADC.

To verify your load balancer configuration:

  1. Log into your FortiADC GUI.
  2. Make sure that your Project ID in OpenStack appears in the Name column of the Virtual Domain page.
