How to add loopback addresses.

To configure loopback addresses:

  1. From the configuration drop-down menu, select a configuration.
  2. Select the Servers tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Configuration information page.
  3. Under Servers, click the name of a DNS/DHCP Server or xHA pair. The Details tab for the server opens.
  4. Click the server or xHA pair name menu button and select Service Configuration.
  5. Under the Interface column, choose the loopback (lo) interface then navigate across the row to the Action column and click Edit.
  6. Complete the following:
    • In the Description field, enter a name for the new loopback address. You can enter up to 80 alphanumeric characters including spaces, but excluding special characters.
    • In the Address/CIDR field, enter an IPv4 or IPv6 address and netmask using CIDR notation. For example, 192.0.2.100/24 or 2001:db8::AC10:FE02/64. This will be the IP address assigned to the newly created VLAN interface. If no CIDR netmask is added, /32 will be automatically added for IPv4 addresses; /128 for IPv6 addresses.
    • Click Add Address. The loopback address appears in the Addresses list. Add additional loopback addresses as needed. To delete an address, select a loopback address from the Addresses list and click Remove.
  7. Click OK. The Edit Interfaces pop-up window closes.
  8. Under Addresses, expand to view the newly added loopback address.
