9.0.0

Address Manager supports two interfaces — eth0 and eth1. The eth0 interface is the default interface for all services and management traffic, including DNS, DHCP, and SNMP. The eth1 interface can be used for network redundancy on Address Manager appliances only.

Address Manager customers can enable network redundancy from the Address Manager user interface and view the status of port bonding from the Address Manager Administration Console.

Note: The eth1 interface cannot be configured through the Address Manager Administration Console. Address Manager network redundancy using eth1 can only be enabled through the Address Manager user interface.

DNS/DHCP Server

DNS/DHCP Server includes multi-interface support for BlueCat DNS/DHCP Server appliances and virtual machines. 3-port DNS/DHCP Server VMs support eth0, eth1, and eth2; 4-port DNS/DHCP Server appliances support eth0, eth1, eth2, and eth3.

You can also configure VLAN and bonding interfaces, as well as assign additional IPv4 service addresses and loopback addresses.

Note: The Administration Console places all IPv4 and IPv6 addressing under the configure interfaces command of the configuration mode, while the gateway parameter is under the configure network command. For details on configuring network settings, refer to Network settings.

Cloud VMs

If you are using cloud VMs such as AWS and Azure, you cannot modify interfaces via the Administration Console, instead, use your respective cloud portals to modify your interfaces.
