Manage IP addresses or FQDNs of an inSync Storage Node

inSync Private Cloud Editions: File:/tick.png Elite File:/tick.png Enterprise

Overview

You can configure multiple IP addresses or fully qualified domain names (FQDN) that you can use to communicate with an inSync Storage Node. While adding multiple IP addresses or FQDNs, you specify the IP address, select the network type, and set the IP as primary or secondary address.

You can set the network type as LAN, WAN, or AUTO. If the IP address is set to AUTO, inSync identifies connections with time-to-live (TTL) connections of 20 ms, or higher, as WAN.

inSync Master and inSync uses the primary IP address as the first address to communicate with the storage node. If you configured secondary IP addresses and the communication through the primary IP address fails, inSync Master and inSync uses the secondary IP addresses.
