  4. Enter the following:
    • Interface: Displays the name of the VLAN interface. This can be LAN1 (VLAN)(IPv4), LAN1 (VLAN)(IPv6), LAN2 (VLAN)(IPv4), or LAN2 (VLAN)(IPv6) depending on your selection. You cannot modify this.
    • Address: Type the IP address for the VLAN port.
    • Subnet Mask (IPv4) or Prefix Length (IPv6): For IPv4 address, specify an appropriate subnet mask and for IPv6 address, specify the prefix length. The prefix length ranges from 2 to 127, with common-sense values ranging from /48 to /127 due to the larger number of bits in the IPv6 address.
    • Gateway: Type the IPv4 or IPv6 default gateway address for the VLAN port depending on the type of interface. For IPv6 interface, you can also type Automatic to enable the appliance to acquire the IPv6 address of the default gateway and the link MTU from router advertisements.
      You can now define a link-local address as the default IPv6 gateway and isolate the LAN segment so the local router can provide global addressing and access to the network and Internet. This is supported for both LAN1 and LAN2 interfaces as well as LAN1 and LAN2 in the failover mode.
    • VLAN Tag: Enter the VLAN tag or ID. You can enter a number from 1 to 4094. Ensure that you configure the corresponding switch accordingly. For information about VLANs, see About Virtual LANs.
    • Port Settings: For IPv4 only. From the drop-down list, choose the connection speed that you want the port to use. You can also choose the duplex setting. Choose Full for concurrent bidirectional data transmission or Half for data transmission in one direction at a time. Select Automatic to instruct the NIOS appliance to negotiate the optimum port connection type (full or half duplex) and speed with the connecting switch automatically. This is the default setting. You cannot configure port settings for vNIOS appliances.
    • DSCP Value: Displays the Grid DSCP value, if configured. To modify, click Override and enter the DSCP value. You can enter a value from 0 to 63. For information about DSCP, see Implementing Quality of Service Using DSCP.
  5. Save the configuration and click Restart if it appears at the top of the screen.

  2. In the Network tab of the Grid Member Properties editor, the Required Ports and Addresses table lists the network settings that were configured. This table lists the network settings of LAN1(IPv4) interface for an IPv4 member and LAN1(IPv6) interface for an IPv6 member. For a dual mode Grid member, this table lists the settings for both LAN1(IPv4) and LAN1(IPv6) interfaces. Complete the following to modify port settings:
    • Interface: Displays the name of the interface. You cannot modify this.
    • Address: Click the field and modify the IP address for the LAN1 port, which must be in a different subnet from that of the LAN2 and HA ports.
    • Subnet Mask (IPv4) or Prefix Length (IPv6): For IPv4 address, click the field and specify an appropriate subnet mask and for IPv6 address, specify the prefix length.
    • Gateway: Click the field and modify the default gateway for the LAN1 port.
    • VLAN Tag: Click the field and enter the VLAN tag ID if the port is configured for VLANs. You can enter a number from 1 to 4095. For information about VLAN, see About Virtual LANs.
    • Port Settings: From the drop-down list, choose the connection speed that you want the port to use. You can also choose the duplex setting. Choose Full for concurrent bidirectional data transmission or Half for data transmission in one direction at a time. Select Automatic to instruct the NIOS appliance to negotiate the optimum port connection type (full or half duplex) and speed with the connecting switch automatically. This is the default setting.

    titleNote

    The port settings on the connecting switch must be identical to those you set on the NIOS appliance.
