Deployment Worksheet

The appliance uses at least two ports: the management port (typically 0/1) and the traffic port (such as 10/1). You must select ports in advance, because the configuration depends on the identity of the ports.

The appliance uses three subnets directly: the management subnet, the external traffic subnet, and the internal traffic subnet. Multiple IP addresses are used on each subnet. Each subnet must be specified along with the correct subnet mask.

The following figure is a worksheet for these parameters. It supports inline and virtual inline modes, with and without high availability. The table below the figure describes what each entry means.

  Parameter Example Your Value Description
Management Subnet        
M2. Gateway IP address 10.199.79.254   Default gateway serving the management subnet.
M3. Subnet Mask 255.255.255.128   Subnet mask for the management subnet.
M4. Xen Hypervisor IP address 10.199.79.225   IP address of Xen Hypervisor.
M5. Service VM IP address 10.199.79.226   IP address of Management Service VM, which controls configuration.
M6. Accelerator UI 10.199.79.227   Accelerator GUI, also called the Broker UI, which manages the instances as a unit.
M7. NetScaler Management IP address 10.199.79.245   IP address of the NetScaler instance’s GUI and CLI interfaces.
External Traffic Subnet        
T1. Router IP address 172.17.17.1   IP address of the first router on external traffic subnet.
T2. Router IP address 172.17.18.1   IP address of the second router on external traffic subnet.
T3. Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0   Subnet mask of external traffic subnet.
T4. Subnet IP address 172.17.17.2   Subnet IP address for NetScaler on external traffic subnet.
T5. Subnet IP address 172.17.18.2   Subnet IP address for NetScaler on external traffic subnet.
T6. External Signaling IP address 172.17.17.10   Traffic to this IP address is load-balanced between the signaling IP addresses of the accelerators.
T7. Local LAN Subnets 10.200.0.0/16   The local LAN subnet to be accelerated. This is the only subnet that receives acceleration.
T8. Traffic Port 10/1   Port used for accelerated traffic.
T9. Traffic Port 10/6   Port used for accelerated traffic.

Note: Ports 10/3 and 10/4 are reserved for loopback cable. Do not configure these ports as traffic ports.
