About this task

This task creates a network space using the GUI wizard. 

  • Network Space - the definition of a specific data service (NAS / replication / iSCSI) within one specific subnet. 

This task is a prerequisite for:

  • Creating a link
  • Creating a replication 
  • Deploying a service (for example: NAS)

For multi-InfiniBox services (Replication), repeat this task for each InfiniBox.

Prerequisites

  • Ports:
    • Data
      • 1 or more ports per node (preferably of the same configuration across all nodes)
      • IP addresses
        • iSCSI - 6
        • NAS - 6
        • Asynchronous replication - 4
        • Synchronous replication - 7 
      • Firewall port: 8067 (for asynchronous replication only)
    • Management (required only for Replication network space)
      • 1 Management port
      • 1 IP address
      • Firewall ports: 80, 443
  • Network interface

  4. Type the IP addresses of the network, netmask, default gateway, management and data.
    Type Enter or click Add for each management and data IP address.
    Note that the IP addresses list contains 7 IPs (1 management, 6 data) but only 6 are visible on screen (scroll the IP addresses pane to view them all).
