If you are adding a DNS/DHCP Server that previously had bonding enabled, you must first disable bonding from the BDDS Administration Console (this also removes the DNS/DHCP Server from Address Manager control) and confirm the status of dedicated management.

To disable network redundancy when adding an DNS/DHCP Server:

  1. Log in to the DNS/DHCP Server Administration Console as the administrator and run the following commands to first remove the server from Address Manager control, then remove the bonding interface.
    Adonis> configure system
    Adonis:configure:system> set state no-proteus-control
    Adonis:configure:system> exit
    Adonis> configure interfaces
    Adonis:configure:interfaces> remove bond0
    Please confirm the removal of requested interface (Y/y or N/n)? Y
    This operation will disconnect SSH connections
    Removed interface successfully
  2. Run the show interfaces command to view the status of dedicated management. If necessary, run the configure interfaces command to enable dedicated management. For complete details, refer to Configuring Dedicated Management.
  3. Return to the BAM user interface and enable network redundancy when adding the server. For details, refer to Adding DNS/DHCP Servers to Address Manager.
