Configure network line-of-sight

An edge node must be able to access the HBase services running inside of your COD. These services are bound to the private network interfaces. Therefore, your edge node must be able to resolve the private IP addresses in your CDP VNet.

There are multiple methods how you can allow your edge node to resolve the private IP addresses in your CDP VPC. For example:
  • Re-use the subnets created for CDP
  • Direct connect
  • Virtual Private Network

Reuse the subnets created for CDP

As a part of the initial CDP setup, you have already created three subnets or CDP would have automatically created this for you. You can use the standard computer service in the Azure Marketplace to launch a Virtual Machine on the same resource group and subnet as your COD. For more information, see Reuse the subnets created for CDP.

Direct connect

To enable computers in your corporate network to communicate with the CDP VNet, you can use Azure ExpressRoute. Azure ExpressRoute enables hardware which you control to communicate with resources on Azure. For more information about Direct Connect, see Azure ExpressRoute Overview: Connect over a private connection.

Virtual Private Network

If you are using a corporate VPN network, you can use establish a VPN connection over the Internet to your COD. For more information, see About Azure VPN Gateway.
