You can disable BDDS network redundancy from the Add Server or Replace Server pages in the Address Manager user interface.

However, you must first disable bonding from the BDDS Administration Console and remove the DNS/DHCP Server from Address Manager control before completing the operation from the Address Manager user interface.

You can disable network redundancy when adding an DNS/DHCP Server that previously had network redundancy enabled, or you can disable network redundancy on an active DNS/DHCP Server by first disabling the server, then disabling redundancy when replacing the server.
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.
Attention: When disabling Active/Active NIC bonding, you must first disable the 802.3ad mode from the network switch, then disable bonding from the Administration Console. This protects against loss of connectivity with the DNS/DHCP Server.
