Deployment Worksheet

Aug 09, 2017

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 HA. The table below the figure describes what each entry means.
