The shipping keyword was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

Active/standby failover lets you use a standby security appliance to take over the functionality of a failed unit. When the active unit fails, it changes to the standby state, while the standby unit changes to the active state. The appliance that becomes active assumes the IP addresses and MAC addresses of the failed unit and begins to pass traffic.

When you use the VLAN commands, you are commiting your server to a membership in a particular VLAN. Following are the advantages of becoming a member of a VLAN:
  • Provides traffic isolation, which leads to enhanced security.

  • Reduces broadcast and multicast traffic, which leads to improved network performance.

Examples

This example shows how to enable DHCP:

server# scope cimc
server /cimc # scope network
server /cimc/network # set dhcp-enabled yes
server /cimc/network* # commit
server /cimc/network #
