Configure NetScaler

If you will be using a NetScaler instance as an NFV, you need to configure NetScaler. You need to configure networking for vNIC0, which will include giving it an IP in the bridged VLAN and configuring other settings accordingly.

Prerequisites for configuring NetScaler for the first time

Make sure you obtain the following information before attempting to set up NetScaler:
  • Proper gateway (if it is on a bridged network, it will need to be the gateway IP on that VLAN)
  • Usable IP within your network range
  • Netmask
  • Subnetmask

You can obtain the information from the command line interface (CLI). Type the following commands:

set ns config -ipaddress<IPAddress> -netmask<subnetMask>
add ns ip<IPAddress> <subnetMask> -type<type>
add route<network> <netmask> <gateway>
set system user <userName> -password
save ns config
reboot

Note:

You can ping from "shell" to test this configuration.

Example:

set ns config -ipaddress 10.102.29.60 -netmask 255.255.255.0  
add ns ip 10.102.29.61 255.255.255.0 -type snip
add route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.102.29.1  
set system user nsroot -password
Enter password: *****
Confirm password: *****
save ns config
reboot
