Each CORD POD deployment requires a POD configuration file that describes how the systems should be configured, including what IP addresses should be used for the external and the internal networks, what users the system should run with during the automated installation, and much more.

POD configuration files are YAML files with extension .yml, contained in /cord/build/config directory in your dev VM. You can either decide to create a new file with your favorite editor or start copying and extending an existing one.

The sample.yml configuration file is there for this purpose. All parameters have a descriptions. Not mandatory lines have been commented out and can be used in case are needed.

More information about how the network configuration for the POD can be customized can be found in the Appendix “POD network settings”.
