BlueCat recommends that all customers enable / disable Address Manager network redundancy from Address Manager. However, you can also disable network redundancy from the Address Manager Administration Console by removing the bond0 interface.

Note: Disabling redundancy may require re-wiring of your network switch. BlueCat strongly recommends scheduling a maintenance window for any changes to network redundancy/port bonding.

To disable Address Manager network redundancy:

  1. Log in to the Address Manager Administration Console as the administrator. For more information on default login credential for Address Manager, refer to BlueCat default login credentials (you must be authenticated to view this topic).
  2. From Main Session mode, type configure interfaces and press ENTER.
  3. Type remove bond0 and press ENTER.
  4. At the prompt, type <Y|y> and press ENTER.
    This operation will disconnect SSH connections.
  5. To verify that bonding is disabled, type show and press ENTER.
