Managing Message VPNs

Message VPNs allows for many separate applications to share a single message router while still remaining independent and separated. Basically, Message VPNs enable the virtualization of a Solace router into many individual virtual message brokers.

Message VPNs allow for the segregation of topic space and messaging space by creating fully separate messaging domains. Message VPNs also group clients connecting to a network of Solace routers, so that messages published within a particular group are only visible to clients that belong to that group. Each client connection is associated with a single Message VPN.

Default Router Configuration

The initial configuration and functioning of aSolace router with respect to the Message VPN feature is as follows:

  • There is a single Message VPN named default. It cannot be deleted from the router.
    • For Solace appliances, the Message VPN named default is disabled by default.
    • For Solace VMRs, the Message VPN named default is enabled.
  • There is a single client username named default that exists in each Message VPN. It has default attributes assigned to it, and it is assigned to all clients. It cannot be deleted from the router, but an administrator can modify its configuration.
    • For Solace appliances, the client username named default is disabled by default.
    • For Solace VMRs, the client username named default is enabled by default.
