Bug Description

Brief Description
The DC doc ( is wrong for AIO-SX subclouds. It says to follow the AIO-SX instructions for the subcloud - that results in the management network being configured on the loopback interface, which will not allow the subcloud to function.

There are two additional issues with this document that should also be clarified:
1. The subcloud will not go online until the route is added on the subcloud. That should be stated.
2. It should also be made clear that the “system host-route-add” command is to be run on the subcloud.

Critical: unable to configure AIO-SX subcloud following the existing instructions.

Steps to Reproduce
Attempt to install an AIO-SX subcloud following the existing documentation.

Expected Behavior
Subcloud installs successfully.

Actual Behavior
The subcloud will not go online.


System Configuration
Distributed cloud with AIO-SX subcloud.

Branch/Pull Time/Commit
stx.3.0 release

Last Pass


Test Activity
Developer Testing

Follow the AIO-DX instructions (just for controller-0) to complete the installation of the AIO-SX subcloud.

stx.3.0 / high priority since the current instructions will result in the subclouds not coming online.
This should also be fixed in the stx.4.0 docs if they've been created.

tags: added: stx.3.0 stx.4.0
