Issue



Overview
The RapidFire (RF) Update, RF9010 contains the following update:
· For the multi-NICs computers, bv-Control for UNIX now supports registering multiple physical IP addresses after installing a UNIX agent using the setup.sh utility. A new command line option, -lip (local IPaddress) is added for the setup.sh utility to register multiple IP addresses when installing the UNIX agent.
The command to register multiple IP addresses to a UNIX agent is as follows:
· Without Resource Credentials:
./setup.sh -c [Information Server Name] [Machine Description] [-s ] [-lip ]
· With Resource Credentials:
./setup.sh -a [Information Server Name] [Machine Description] [Resource Name] [Resource Password] [-s ] [-lip ]
The command to delete the multiple IP addresses registrations made using the -lip option is as follows:
· ./setup.sh -d [Information Server Name] [-s ] [-lip ]
The command to notify the Information Server about the change in the IP addresses is as follows:
· ./setup.sh -n [Information Server Name] [-lip -olip ]
where,
"local-ip-address" is the local IP address of the UNIX agent that is used for registration, deletion, or IP Propagation, and
"old-local-ip-address" is the local IP address of the UNIX agent before changing to the new IP address
