First let me repeat the cliche that I'm pretty new in the field so please excuse me in any ingenuousness.
I've already setup a server with ubuntu 16.04 and done pretty much everything it takes to have maas provision nodes (of course I'll go on deploying other stuff for openstack if only I can pass this very stage) on it based on some straightforward guide (put there by a great guy code name "openstack in basement") I found on the internet. The bad luck is those comprehensive guides are revolving around ubuntu 14.04 and maas 1.7 (I'm not sure but definitely not maas 2.0) so as you know everything seems different from old version of maas from packages you need to install to maas gui and even commands. Ok let me cut it short here and get to my problem specifically.
In ubuntu server there's two network interfaces one connected to university network (since I'm going through all these as a uni project & I set it all up in uni lab) with static ip and access to internet, and the other one connected to a dedicated switch again static ip and both nics configured in /etc/network/interfaces :
# The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The primary network interface auto enp3s0 iface enp3s0 inet static address 172.16.63.100 netmask 255.255.192.0 gateway 172.16.40.12 dns-nameservers 10.1.1.100 22.214.171.124 172.16.0.159 auto enp5s0 iface enp5s0 inet static address 10.1.1.100 netmask 255.255.255.0 # static route up route add -net 172.16.0.0/18 default gw 172.16.40.12 dev enp3s0
In the maas gui under network tab there's two fabric-0 and fabric-1 with network information of public interface and private interface respectively. The gui for fabric-1:
Under DNS tab but unfortunately the public interface's ip is shown :
I couldn't figure it out how to change it to private interface's ip. By the way when I for the first time changed the setups in the BIOS of one of the nodes connected to switch to be pxe booted and restarted it, it presumably booted by network and received things from maas although through this process demonstrated some failing errors to connect to some addresses on the internet (I'm not sure why since it gets every thing from maas, doesn't it?) and finally the black page with:
Ubuntu 16.6 LTS ubuntu ubuntu login:
appeared on the pxe booted node which I'm totally baffled what to do with that since I expect it to shutdown automatically. Well it did not and still no sign of enlisting that node on maas gui (still a 0 beside Machines under node tab)
Please guys help out of humanity, I'm somehow stuck on the verge of collapsing under burden of this dissertation which has barely started.
