Deployment Worksheet

Aug 09, 2017

Note: Use this worksheet only when provisioning a factory-reset appliance with the release 7.1 configuration wizard. If you are simply upgrading a previously configured system to release 7.1, your appliance will retain its previous configuration, which will be different.

The appliance uses at least two ports: the management port (typically 0/1) and the traffic port (such as 10/1). Inline mode uses traffic ports in pairs, such as ports 10/1 and 10/2. Ports must be selected in advance, because the configuration depends on their identity.

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 WCCP modes, with and without HA. The table below the figure describes what each entry means.
