The Networking -> Network Interfaces menu shows the virtual network interfaces allocated to the smart server. Network interfaces join the physical network to the smart server.
When you create a smart server, a network interface is added automatically. This network interface will be assigned to the existing physical network using a spare IP (IPv4) and will be set primary by default.
OnApp supports IPv4 and IPv6. Since not every application supports IPv6, at least one IPv4 address must be allocated to a smart server primary network interface.

To see the list of all network interfaces allocated to the smart server:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Smart Servers menu.
  2. Click the label of the smart server you're interested in.
  3. Click the Networking tab, then click Network Interfaces.
  4. On the page that follows you will see the following fields:
  • Interface – optional label of the network interface.
  • Network join – name of the network and a compute resource or compute zone this network is joined to.
  • Port speed – the speed set to the interface.
  • Primary interface – indication whether the interface is primary or not.

Here you can also edit and delete network interfaces (using icon controls) and add a new network interface using the button at the bottom of the screen.

To add a network interface:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Smart Servers menu.
  2. Click the label of the smart server you're interested in.
  3. Click the Networking tab, then click Network Interfaces.
  4. Click the Add New Network Interface button at the bottom of the screen.
  5. On the screen that appears, input values for the following parameters:
    • Label – a human-friendly name for the new interface.
    • Physical Network – choose a network join from the drop-down menu, which lists network joins assigned to the compute resource/compute zone on which the smart server runs).
    • Port speed – set port speed in Mbps, or make it unlimited.
  6. Click the Submit button.

To edit network interface label, port speed or set it as primary (if none is marked as primary), click the Edit icon next to the appropriate network interface. After editing the port speed, the smart server should be power cycled for the change to take effect.

To delete a network interface, click the Delete icon next to the interface you want to delete.

To run the smart server, at least one network interface with an assigned IP address (or addresses) is required!
To allocate another physical network, add a new network interface.
