IP For Additional NIC Configuration

Jump to Best Answer
  • 1.  IP For Additional NIC Configuration

    Posted 09-12-2018 12:08 PM

    Dear Experts,

     

    We are configuring PAM Appliance with total two NICs and have below qestion.

     

    1) Does each NIC need an IP ?

    2) what about the Appliance IP, will that be different or shared with first NIC ?

     

    So, We have an Appliance with 2 NICs,

    We will have 3 IPs (1 for Appliance, 1 for 1st NIC, 1 for 2nd NIC) or
    We will have 2 IPs (1 for Appliance which will share IP with 1st NIC, 1 for 2nd NIC).

     

    Please help.

     

    Thanks

    Yogesh

    Hi Yogesh, That is up to you. If you want to use the second NIC just for redundancy and not to connect to a separate network/subnet, you can team the two interfaces in a bond, see https://docops.ca.com/ca-privileged-access-manager/3-2-2/EN/implementing/configuring-your-server/configure-network-settings. In that case you use a single IP for the bond. If you don't use a bond, you use a different IP for each interface.

    Thanks for the reply Ralf.

    We want to connect seprate network with this additional NIC, is it possible to have different IP for this NIC and another IP for other NIC which will be shared with Appliance ?

     

    Thanks

    Just for info, we are in the phase of deploying PAM, so we need to configure NIC during the deployment so we can connect two different networks.

    If you connect to two different networks, then each NIC has to have its own IP. That's the normal case. Bonding is a special case.
