Around the 9:56 mark Cherokee is describing Transparent drivers for containers being networked mentioning ip ranges... All I can say after watching multiple times is I don't get it. What is it's purpose? Is there any link to send me to that can bring me up to speed on this? I'm lost the way she is explaining it. Thanks as always...
Managing Container Hosts in 70-740
In this episode I am explain how you can alter the default NAT behavior in a Windows container. There are situations in which you would want to control information like what network or IP you would want a container to use. I show the different options and give syntax examples. I would recommend taking a look at the following chart to see in what situation you would typically use the available options. The entire page has some pretty helpful info as well.
If you spin a couple containers up with those different options you can you ipconfig commands to see how they influence the containers network behavior. I hope this helps, if not let me know.
Thank you Cherokee, but it raises more questions. So, for example what's IPAM? Do you need to use a transparent driver to assign a nic instead of just assigning a nic? I obviously need to create a few containers and I will. But this one of those situations that after I do I'm not going to know what I'm doing to once I do. I don't see the labs covering this, and so far my search in MS virtual labs is giving me choices over my head.
@John-DeWilde IPAM stands for IP Address Management. If you are okay with your container receiving an IP address from the network the container host is on, then you do not need to do anything. This would be like at home when your laptop, amazon echo or smart thermostat receive an IP via Network Address Translation, (NAT). If you prefer to have your container receive an alternate IP you can refer back to the chart I referenced and incorporate the corresponding syntax whilst creating the container. You can install Docker for free. This is how you can practice. Do not run Docker and Hyper-V in tandem. If you are still having trouble after you create some containers then I would refer you to an episode that covers either NAT or maybe even the Hyper-V sections of the 70-740 where you also have to choose how virtual machines receive their IP address.
