You must add a
Subnet IP (SNIP) address to the NetScaler instance. You assign this IP address

- If you are
configuring the appliance for two links, repeat this procedure to create
another subnet IP address (entry T5 of your worksheet).
- To add a Subnet IP address to the instance by using the command
line interface, run the following command
> add ns ip 172.17.17.2 255.255.255.0
> add ns ip 172.17.18.2 255.255.255.0
Note: Run the second command only if you are configuring the
appliance for two links.
