Using a Kemp LM 4000 with two interfaces

0

Hello,

we've got our hands on two new Kemp LM 4000s and want to get those to replace our old LM 2200. 

 

Now I have the following question. Is it possible to use the normal rj45 port for management and one of the fibre optic ports for data transfer?

Hello Florian,

once you have the initial setup complete, you can assign any interface for management and any for production
the normal scenario is to use eth 0 for management and eth 1 - eth x for production traffic,

are you looking to setup something different?

Hello,

 

thanks for your answer! :) That sounds just like what i was watching for.

 

Can you maybe tell me where exactly to configure this?

I am making some assumptions here so please correct me if I get something wrong,

with the two units (presumably in HA?)

eth 0 has address of
Unit 1 10.120.0.11/16
Unit 2 10.120.0.12/16
Shared IP 10.120.0.13/16

eth 1 has address of
Unit 1 10.130.0.11/16
Unit 2 10.130.0.12/16
Shared IP 10.130.0.13/16

Again just to highlight you can't have that two interfaces on the same network unless you use bonding,
(this which leads to other questions/scenarios which I can go through if needed)

make sure your virtual services are on the eth 1 10.130.0.0/16 network
and if you need to change your management interface you can do so using the option "Allow Web Administrative Access"

please see the Web User Interface (WUI) guide section "9.6.1 Administrator Access" for more details on this

if you are making changes to the WUI access please make sure you have local access to revert changes if needed
