In addition to binding each IP Manager to a virtual IP interface, you need to configure a router to route packets between each IP Manager and its management domain. You can use either of the following routing methods to route traffic from a IP Manager’s virtual interface through interfaces that are connected only to that server’s management domain:

  • Policy-based routing

    A router that supports policy-based routing uses a packet’s source address to determine which interfaces through which to route the traffic.

  • Source routing

    Source routing involves the addition of routing instructions to the packets that are transmitted by each IP Manager.
