Windows 2008 R2 Server
MS SQL 2008 R2
MS IIS 7
For network control, we have 2 x static IP addresses setup on the PIM server, namely:
1. 10.1.9.10 (default)
2. 10.1.9.20 (additional IP)
There is only one network card (NIC).
We defined DNS/localhost as follows:
Before installation, we verified that we can the PIM server via both IP addresses.
1. RDP --> 10.1.9.10 (successful)
2. RDP --> 10.1.9.20 (successful)
3. http://acme10.uat.local/ (successful)
4. http://acme20.uat.local/ (successful)
After we completed PIM 12.9sp2 installation, we saw connection issues with 10.1.9.20 / acme20.uat.local.
We checked Windows IP configuration and there is no change.
We further checked the following:
2. RDP --> 10.1.9.20 (failed, no response)
4. http://acme20.uat.local/ (failed, no response)
For troubleshooting, we also uninstalled PIM 12.9sp2.
After un-installation, we could access the PIM server via both IP addresses again.
It seems like with PIM 12.9sp2 installed, 10.1.9.20 became inaccessible.
1. Which component of PIM 12.9sp2 controls this behavior?
2. What can we do to PIM 12.9sp2 so that both 10.1.9.10 and 10.1.9.20 are accessible?
Please advise from the field will be much appreciated.
The only component that could control this behavior would be SEOS itself. I don't see how the default rules would block anything like this though. I am not sure I understand the value of having 2 IPs on the same Nic but it should work fine. Did you do any testing to validate the local networking on the machine itself? Checking the route tables before and after? Verify any log information in the event viewer or the local firewall? Maybe SEOS sees the incoming traffic coming in from IP 2 but trying to leave through the default route (IP 1) as some kind of a risk?
If you have a need to make this work I would reinstall and open a support ticket to evaluate why communication is failing.
