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.

Table 1. Deployment Worksheet Parameters
  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 router on external traffic subnet.

T3. NetScaler IP address 172.17.17.2   NetScaler IP address on external traffic subnet.
T4. External Signaling IP address 172.17.17.10   Traffic to this IP address is load-balanced between the signaling IP addresses of the accelerators.
T5. External WCCP IP address #1 172.17.17.11   Maps through NAT to WCCP VIP on accelerator #1.
T6. External WCCP IP address #2 172.17.17.12   Maps through NAT to WCCP VIP on accelerator #2.
T7. Local LAN Subnets 10.200.0.0/16   The local LAN subnet to be accelerated. This is the only subnet that will receive acceleration.
T8. GRE Router HostID NA   WCCP-GRE only. Host ID of GRE router.
T9. Traffic Port 10/1   Port used for accelerated traffic.
T10+. (Inline) Additional Traffic Port     Other traffic port in pair.
T11, T12 (WCCP) Service Groups: TCP, UDP 71, 72   Service groups used by accelerator #1 for WCCP. First is for TCP traffic, second is for UDP.
T13, T14 (Not used)  
T15, T16 (Inline) Ports used by link #2 10/5, 10/6   If multiple links are used with inline mode, these ports are used for link #2.
T17, T18 (Inline) Ports used by link #3 10/7, 10/8   If multiple links are used with inline mode, these ports are used for link #3.
VLAN1.1, VLAN1.2, VLAN1.3, VLAN1.4 External VLANs for Bridge #1 412   When VLAN trunking is used, these are tagged VLANs crossing bridge #1.
VLAN2.1, VLAN2.2, VLAN2.3, VLAN2.4       When VLAN trunking is used, these are tagged VLANs crossing bridge #2.
VLAN3.1, VLAN3.2, VLAN3.3, VLAN3.4 External VLANs for Bridge #1     When VLAN trunking is used, these are tagged VLANs crossing bridge #3.
