The latest release of Unified Access Gateway does not accept netmask or prefix and default gateway settings from Network Protocol Profile.

You must provide this networking information while deploying your Unified Access Gateway instance.

In the case of static deployment, when configuring your Unified Access Gateway instance, specify the IPv4 or IPv6 address, the netmask or prefix for the respective NICs, and the IPv4/IPv6 default gateway. If you do not provide this information, it defaults to DHCPV4+DHCPV6 for the IP address allocation.

Note the following when configuring the networking properties:

  • If you select STATICV4 for the IPMode of a NIC, you must specify the IPv4 address and netmask for that NIC.

  • If you select STATICV6 for the IPMode of a NIC, you must specify the IPv6 address netmask for that NIC.

  • If you select both STATICV4 and STATIC V6 for the IPMode of a NIC, you must specify the IPv4 and IPv6 address and netmask for that NIC.

  • If you do not provide the address and netmask information, the values are allocated by DHCP server.

  • IPv4 and IPv6 default gateway properties are optional and must be specified if Unified Access Gateway needs to communicate to an IP address that is not on a local segment of any NIC in Unified Access Gateway.

See Deploy Unified Access Gateway Using the OVF Template Wizard for more information about configuring networking properties.
