I am going to deploy the vSZ into our infrastructure. I have successfully deployed the OVA template to our VMWare. When it asks to configure the network interfaces, it shows three network interfaces. Should I go ahead to deploy 1 network interface or 3 network interfaces? Or any other options? Any paticular idea on what should I go for?
Here is some of the background of our network.
- most of our staffs and guests are in the centralized office
- some are in remote offices, but they are all connected directly back to our main office, different subnet but all routable
- we would like to deploy at least 6 SSIDs where 1 of them is for the guest access
- going to deploy 30 units of APs
Happy to get the idea from anyone.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Of course, you can use a trunk link. For example, the VLAN managed by the AP is 10.20, 30 is the service VLAN with SSID, and if the POE switch is Cisco, you only need to configure the port as trunk, and then native vlan 10.
The vSZ comes with the option to operate with either one (1) network interface or three (3) network interfaces.
One interface means it will use single interface for Control, Cluster, Management. Whereas, with 3 interface config you have an option to have 3 different subnets.
Refer to below link:
I got it. There is a bit unclear for me that what are the Control and Management different. As far as I guess, Management is the point that I login to the vSZ to do configurations or such.
So what is the Control interface for? Controlling the APs?
I planned to configure all the APs in the same subnet (e.g. 192.168.100.x) . And would be in the same subnet to the vSZ (192.168.100.x) but which interface I should configure this to.
