Version
9.6.0

To enable and use the Dedicated Management interface on BlueCat DNS and DHCP Server for Azure virtual appliances, you must have two interfaces (Service and Management) already configured on your instance.

BlueCat DNS and DHCP Server for Azure virtual appliances already in production must be removed from Address Manager control before enabling Dedicated Management.

To remove BlueCat DNS and DHCP Server for Azure virtual appliances from Address Manager control:
  1. From the BlueCat Address Manager for Azure user interface, disable the server: Servers > server-name > Disable.
  2. From the BlueCat DNS and DHCP Server for Azure Administration Console, remove the server from Address Manager control:
    Adonis> configure system
    Adonis:configure:system> set state no-management

To enable Dedicated Management:

Note: You must enable Dedicated Management using an SSH connection. When you connect to the instance using SSH, a static route is created using the IP address of the SSH client which is required to connect to the management interface. Connecting through the serial console does not create the static route, preventing Dedicated Management from being enabled.
  1. Connect to your instance as the admin user via an SSH connection to the Service interface.
    ssh -i <key_pair_file_name> admin@<service_interface_ip>
  2. From Main Session mode, run the following commands to enable Dedicated Management:
    Adonis> configure interfaces
    Adonis:configure:interfaces> set dedicated-management enable
    CAUTION:
    Enabling Dedicated Management will disconnect your SSH connectivity to the Service interface. Once you enable Dedicated Management, you must re-establish the SSH connection to the Management interface.

If you removed your BlueCat DNS and DHCP Server for Azure virtual appliances from Address Manager control prior to enabling Dedicated Management, replace the server in Address Manager to resume control and management of the appliance (Servers > server-name > Replace).
