9.0.0

Use Configure Interfaces mode to add or remove VLAN interfaces or bonding interfaces.

Add a single VLAN interface directly from the DNS/DHCP Server Administration Console, then configure additional VLAN interfaces from the Address Manager user interface.
Note:
  • Prior to configuring VLAN tagging, make sure you have already configured the desired Services interface (by default, eth0) with an IPv4 address, netmask, and default gateway.
  • DNS/DHCP Servers currently managed by Address Manager must be removed from Address Manager control prior to configuring VLAN interfaces from the Administration Console.
BlueCat only recommends this method for the following scenarios:
  • Configuring dedicated management with VLAN tagging
  • Changing the Primary Service IP from one address to another
  • Configuring default gateways in both IPv4 and IPv6 address-families
  • Configuring static routes in both IPv4 and IPv6 address-families
  • Reset factory defaults on physical interfaces
  • Reset gateway/routing configuration to factory defaults
  • Replacing a Server

You can view the status of VLAN tagging, including the IPv4 address of the Primary IP. Use show interfaces from Main Session mode. The Administration Console displays the details of the configured physical interfaces, VLAN interfaces, and bonding interfaces, as well as any configured additional IP addresses (either on the physical or virtual interfaces).
