Add a Subnet IP Address

Aug 31, 2017
You must add a Subnet IP (SNIP) address to the NetScaler instance. You assign this IP address to the NetScaler instance on the external traffic subnet. The NetScaler instance uses this address to communicate with the router.
To add a subnet IP address to the instance by using the configuration utility
  1. Navigate to the System > Network > IPs page.
  2. Click Add, as shown in the following figure.

  3. In the Create IP dialog box, specify a subnet IP address in the IP Address field if the address has not already been created by the configuration wizard. (If it has already been created, it is listed on the IPs page). The subnet IP address declares the external traffic network. In the IP Address field, type the NetScaler traffic IP address (entry T4 in your worksheet).
  4. In the Netmask field, specify the network mask (entry T3 in your worksheet).
  5. From the IP Type group, make sure that the Subnet IP option is selected, as shown in the following figure.

  6. Click Create and then Close.
  7. 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.
