SoftLayer_Network_Subnet

Overview

Every SoftLayer ip address is associated with a subnet which is defined in the SoftLayer_Network_Subnet service. SoftLayer subnets define a group of ip addresses and are assigned to a SoftLayer_Network_Vlan. The SoftLayer_Network_Subnet service gives you information about your subnet such as your network address, broadcast address, the subnet gateway address, and the total number of IP addresses within the subnet. Use the data returned by these methods with other API services to get more detailed information about your services.

Along with VLANs, subnets are an integral part of the SoftLayer network. Each server ordered by SoftLayer comes with at least one public and one private subnet, with more available for order in the customer portal. Subnets exist in the SoftLayer network as either interfaces on a VLAN or as route destination from an IP address or VLAN.

SoftLayer customers can order and manage subnets through the customer portal. If you need to cancel a subnet please open a sales ticket in our customer portal and our account management staff will assist you.

Methods

Allow access to a SoftLayer_Network_Storage volume from this device.

Allow access to multiple SoftLayer_Network_Storage volumes from this device.

Create the default PTR records for this subnet

create a new transaction to modify a subnet route.

create a SWIP transaction for a subnet

Edit the note for this subnet.

Retrieve a list of subnets along with their SWIP transaction statuses.

Retrieve if present, the active registration for this subnet.

Retrieve all the swip transactions associated with a subnet that are still active.

Retrieve all reverse DNS records associated with a subnet.

Retrieve an identifier of the role the subnet is within. Roles dictate how a subnet may be used.

Retrieve the name of the role the subnet is within. Roles dictate how a subnet may be used.

Retrieve valid routable endpoint addresses for a subnet.

Retrieve the identifier for the type of route then subnet is currently configured for.

Retrieve the name for the type of route then subnet is currently configured for.

Retrieve an IP addresses's associated subnet.
