|Applies To||RSA Product Set: NetWitness Platform|
RSA Product/Service Type: NetWitness Platform Hosts
RSA Version/Condition: 11.4 and later
O/S Version: 7
|Issue||Due to circumstances, the normal 1G interface cannot be used as the management interface for a NetWitness server. Instead, a 10G interface must be used for all management functions.|
Warning: Only one interface can be enabled as the management interface. The steps within this article have to be performed at the time of server build to work correctly. All interfaces must be completely disabled except for the 10G interface that will be used as the management interface. If all interfaces, except the 10G management interface, are not disabled during the build process, the build process/bootstrapping will fail.
Note: On the series 5 and 6 servers the interface numbering provided by CentOS starts em1 at the first 1G interface and not the first port on the back of the server. The first two ports are the 10G ports while the last two are the 1G ports. So the physical ports are arranged this way left to right: Port 1 - 10G (em3), Port 2 - 10G (em4), Port 3 - 1G (em1), Port 4 - 1G (em2).
