Re-IP

Post by mtoms » Oct 01, 2015 1:17 pm

Hi All,

Apologies in advance if this has been asked before.

I'm in the processing of planning the replication to a DR site and will need to utilise the Re-IP facility as the production site is on a different subnet to the DR site. What I want to know is if it is possible to restrict the replicas to use just a portion of the class c subnet rather than the complete range.

e.g. 192.168.1.200 to 192.168.1.220

The reason I want to control this is because I already have some other devices in use on that subnet.

TIA

Matt

You can create individual rules, so that, VM in case of disaster will be assigned an IP address from a correct range. (you can also do it in automatic fashion, using PowerShell). Thanks.

Hi v.Eremin,

Thanks for the response but I'm not sure I follow. The Re-IP rules screen doesn't appear to allow you set a specific pool of IP addresses to use to assign to the replicas.

Can you provide an example of how to achieve this?

e.g. how can I set it so that the replicas are assigned IP addresses from a range between 192.168.1.10 to 192.168.1.20?

Thanks

I mean setting an individual rule (one per VM). Something like 192.168.0.2 -> 192.168.1.12, etc. As I've said, it can be done in automatic fashion with the use of PowerShell. Thanks.
