Consolidation with Dedicated Interfaces for Each Instance

May 04, 2017
In the following example, the instances are part of multiple networks. Interface 0/1 is assigned to the Management Service, which is part of the internal 10.1.1.x network. NetScaler instances 2 and 3 are part of the 10.1.200.x network (VLAN 100), and NetScaler instances 4 and 5 are part of the 10.1.3.x network (VLAN 200).

Optionally, you can configure an NSVLAN on all of the instances.

The following figure illustrates the above use case.

Figure 1. Network topology of an SDX appliance with NetScaler instances in multiple networks

The SDX appliance is connected to a switch. Make sure that VLAN IDs 100 and 200 are configured on the switch port to which port 1/1 on the appliance is connected.

The following table lists the names and values of the parameters used for provisioning NetScaler instances 5 and 3 in this example.
