When using a fixed IP addresses in a multi-subnet Dicentis system, certain settings need to be made for the system to function well. If the settings are not made correctly, the system can stop functioning & disconnect from the server.
The IP address of the server should lie outside the DHCP scope for the rest of the system, otherwise IP address conflicts may occur.
When using a multi-subnet, a DNS suffix needs to be added to the IP settings of the server in order for the devices in the system to find the server.
In order to use a computer in a Dicentis system to which you want to assign a fixed IP you should make the settings similar to below. The settings should of course match the definitions made for your network.
A quick test to verify if the settings are correct, is to run the command as in the screen capture below. If you see a list of DICENTIS devices registered in the domain parent.bosch.omneo (and/or other domains in the multi-subnet system) then it is fine. The Bosch-arni is registered twice, once in the “local” domain and a second time in the “parent.bosch.omneo” domain, this is normal.
If you only see the Bosch-arni registered in “local” domain, the DNS settings are wrong.
We have created different kinds of blueprint as your reference for your network setup. You can find them within our Software of the DICENTIS.
Out of our experience we only use Cisco switches which seems to us have the best performance for our DICENTIS. For that reason we have started with this three switches to create blueprints with them and it will probably extend in future with other models.
An explanation is added and you can directly upload our pre configured files in your switch for single sub net or multi sub-nets with ARNI's.
