VLAN interfaces (also known as VLAN tagging) permits to isolate logical networks architectures at OSI layer 2 over the same physical NIC interface, each one with its own independent routing table. See below how to configure and manage VLANs interfaces.
VLAN Interfaces Table
This table lists all the VLAN interfaces configured in the system.
NAME. Name of the VLAN interface, it also indicates the parent NIC or bonding and the VLAN tag.
ALIAS. Interface alias, it identifies the interface with an alias that can be easily accessed when configuring a farm or any other service.
ADDRESS. Network-layer IP address of the VLAN interface if configured. It Supports IPv4 and IPv6.
MAC. Link-layer address of the VLAN interface. In the case that it is not configured, the VLAN will inherit it from the parent NIC or bonding interface.
NETMASK. A subnet mask of the VLAN interface if configured. It can only be configured if the IP address is configured or is being configured too.
GATEWAY. Default gateway used by the VLAN interface if configured. Must be on the same subnet.
STATUS. The status of a given VLAN interface, the available values are Green if the virtual interface is up and Red if the virtual interface is down.
ACTIONS. The available actions for every interface in the table are the following:
- Edit. Change the VLAN configuration like IP address, MAC address, netmask, and gateway.
- Bring up. Set the interface up and configured to accept traffic.
- Bring down. Set the interface down and stop accepting traffic.
- Delete. Clear the configuration and remove the VLAN interface.
- Cluster. No actions are allowed as this interface is used in the cluster service for synchronization and heartbeat processes. In order to modify this interface is required to disable the cluster service.
Through the Actions menu button the following actions are available for the selected interfaces:
- Create VLAN. This option redirects to the VLAN creation form.
- The actions mentioned above. The actions mentioned above: Bring up, Bring down and Delete
