Service Point v4.x.x
Once you have deployed identity service to a service point, you can modify the service IP addresses that are bound to the identity service in the event that you update the IP addresses of the service point.
Attention: You can only modify the service point network configurations if there are no services bound to the IP addresses being modified. If you have any services listening on the IP addresses to be modified, you must first update the service so that it no longer listens on this address.
To modify the identity service:
  1. In the top navigation bar, click and select Identity services.
  2. Click the name of an identity service. The identity service details page appears.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. Under Service version, select the service version that you would like to update to.
  5. Under Service IPs, select one of the following options to bind IP addresses to the identity service:
    • Listen on all primary (IPv4 and IPv6) addresses: the identity service listens for queries on all configured primary IP addresses configured on the Service Point v4 instance.
    • Don't listen on any addresses: the identity service does not listen for queries on any IP addresses configured on the Service Point v4 instance.
    • Listen only on specific addresses: the identity service listens for queries on specified IP addresses. Once you select this radio button, the select the following IP addresses:
      1. Select the checkbox next to the Primary IP address to associate with the identity service.
      2. If you have configured Anycast service on the service point, select the checkbox next to the Anycast IP address to bind to the identity service.

        For more information on configuring Anycast service on the service point, refer to Configuring Anycast service on Service Point v4.

      3. If you configured any Alias IP addresses, select the checkbox next to the Aliases IP address to bind to the identity service.
      4. If you have configured DSR VIPs on the service point, select the checkbox next to the Direct server return (DSR) IP address to bind to the identity service.
        For more information on configuring DSR VIPs on the service point, refer to Configuring the DSR VIP on Service Point v4.
        Attention: If you bind the DSR VIP to the identity service, the service point should not receive queries over the DSR VIP. Any queries sent to the service point on the DRS VIP are not answered by the service point, but are answered by the identity service.
  6. Click Update.
Note: Clicking the Deploy button queues the deployment task on the associated service point and does not indicate that the identity service has been immediately deployed. The deployment process can take a few minutes to successfully complete.
