The Red Hat OpenShift Networking network plugin is selected during installation (
OVNKubernetes). This value cannot be
changed after cluster installation. Red Hat
OpenShift Container Platform uses the
OVNKubernetes network plugin by default. From Red Hat
OpenShift Container Platform 4.12 onwards, the
OVNKubernetes Container Network Interface (CNI) uses the
100.64.0.0/16 subnet internally. For more information, see About the OVN-Kubernetes network plugin in the Red Hat
OpenShift Container Platform documentation.
If your existing network infrastructure overlaps with the
subnet, you can specify a different IP address range for internal use by
OVNKubernetes. You must ensure that the IP address range does not overlap with any
other subnet used by your Red Hat
OpenShift Container Platform installation. The IP
address range must be larger than the maximum number of nodes that can be added to the cluster. For
more information, see Cluster Network Operator .
