Configuring the VIP on a service point - BlueCat Edge - Service Point v3.x.x

BlueCat Edge Deployment Guide

Product name
BlueCat Edge
Service Point v3.x.x

The service point is essentially a Unix-based operating system that runs a collection of containers. However, it doesn't provide a console to end users. The IP configuration, specifically the configuration of the VIP on the service point’s loopback interface, is done through the GuestInfo facility that VMWare provides.

Note: First, configure a static IP address on the service point. This is done regardless of whether DSR is being implemented or not. DSR doesn't work with DHCP configured service points.

This is the VIP of the load balancer, also known as the service address:


This is the name of the interface, in this case, the loopback:                       lo   
guestinfo.interface.2.role                       private 

Additional information is available on the CoreOS GuestInfo page.
