If I want to change VNET_MODE, how do I get this change reflected in eucalyptus.local.conf?

Asked by Lorin Hochstein

The man page for eucalyptus.local.conf states that it should not be edited directly, and instead that euca_conf should be used to make changes.

I'd like to change the VNET_MODE from MANAGED-NOVLAN to MANAGED. There's already a eucalyptus.local.conf file that looks like:

# network configuration from the input configuration file

I don't see an obvious euca_conf command for changing this configuration option. I can edit eucalyptus.conf, but it looks like the existing eucalyptus.local.conf configuration will take precedence.

$ sudo restart eucalyptus CLEAN=1
Otherwise the network configuration change will not be picked up by the

If this is the recommended approach, I would suggest updating the eucalyptus.local.conf man page, since it currently says:

"This file should never be edited directly."

I've checked back with our cloud architect and he states that using the
eucalyptus.conf file is the recommended way.

OK, I'll delete the eucalyptus.local.conf file and just use eucalyptus.conf, as recommended.
