Removing a NetScaler-Owned IP Address

Aug 28, 2013

You can remove any IP address except the NSIP. The following table provides information about the processes you must follow to remove the various types of IP addresses. Before removing a VIP, remove the associated virtual server.

Table 1. Implications of Removing a NetScaler-Owned IP Address

IP address type

Implications

Subnet IP address (SNIP)

If IP address being removed is the last IP address in the subnet, the associated route is deleted from the route table. If the IP address being removed is the gateway in the corresponding route entry, the gateway for that subnet route is changed to another NetScaler-owned IP address.

Mapped IP address (MIP)

If a SNIP exists, you can remove the MIPs. The NetScaler uses NSIP and SNIPs to communicate with the servers when the MIP is removed. Therefore, you must also enable use SNIP (USNIP) mode.

For information about enabling and disabling USNIP mode, see "Configuring Subnet IP Addresses (SNIPs)."

Virtual Server IP address (VIP)

Before removing a VIP, you must first remove the vserver associated with it.

For information about removing the vserver, see "Load Balancing."

GSLB-Site-IP address

Before removing a GSLB site IP address, you must remove the site associated with it.

For information about removing the site, see "Global Server Load Balancing."

To remove an IP address by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type:

rm ns ip <IPaddress>

Example

 
 rm ns ip 10.102.29.54  

To remove an IP address by using the configuration utility

Navigate to System > Network > IPs > IPV4s, delete the IP address.
