Configure Network and Central Management Settings

To configure a director node in transparent bridge mode, configure a network interface for the transparent bridge functions and let its IP address be used for Central Management communication.

  1. Select Configuration | Appliances.
  2. On the appliances tree, select the appliance you want to configure as a director node and click Network interfaces.
  3. Prepare the network interface for the transparent bridge functions.
    1. Select a still unused network interface of the appliance, but do not enable it yet.
    2. On the Advanced tab, select Bridge enabled.
    3. In the Name field, type ibr0 as the name of the interface.
    4. On the IPv4 tab, under IP Settings, select Disable IPv4.
    5. Click Save Changes.
      You are logged off and logged on to the appliance again.
  4. Configure the network interface for the transparent bridge functions.
    1. Select Configuration | Appliances. Then select the appliance again, and click Network interfaces.
      An additional network interface named ibr0 is now available.
    2. Select the ibr0 interface.
    3. On the IPv4 tab, configure an IP address, a subnet mask, and a default route for this interface.
    4. Select the checkbox next to the interface to enable it.
  5. Configure the network interface that is currently used to access the appliance as the network interface for the transparent bridge functions.
    1. Select the network interface that is currently used to access the appliance.
    2. On the Advanced tab, select Bridge enabled.
    3. In the Name field, type ibr0 as the name of the interface.
    4. On the IPv4 tab, under IP Settings, select Disable IPv4.
  6. Enable the ibr0 network interface that you selected in step 3 from the until now unused network interfaces.
  7. Configure Central Management settings.
    1. Select Central Management.
    2. Under Central Management Settings, add the IP address you configured for the ibr0 network interface to the list that is provided.
  8. Click Save Changes.

If you want to use more than one network interface for the transparent bridge mode, configure more unused network interfaces of an appliance in the same way.
