DNS/DHCP Servers behind NAT with dedicated management enabled can also be configured for xHA. When adding DNS/DHCP Servers behind NAT with dedicated management enabled, you will need to enter the Inside NAT addresses for the Service IPv4 address fields for the Active and Passive nodes.

Attention: Dedicated management and NAT

While DNS/DHCP Servers with Dedicated Management enabled can be configured for xHA, the features and functionality of Dedicated Management are not supported over NAT.

The diagram below illustrates the creation of an xHA pair using DNS/DHCP Servers behind NAT with dedicated management enabled:
  • Address Manager communicates with the xHA pair exclusively through the Management interface (eth2)
  • Enter the Inside NAT IP addresses of the xHA pair when configuring the xHA pair in the Address Manager interface
  • xHA pair communicates with its clients on a different network/subnet (eth0) using the Outside NAT IP address.
