Description:

Yes, you can make a DSA listen on multiple IP addresses by adding the IP addresses in the knowledge file of the DSA.

Solution:

The following describes how to make a DSA listen on multiple IP addresses.

Example:

You have a DSA named democorp and you have multiple IP addresses configured for the host which has this DSA installed.
The multiple IP's for your host are 123.33.222.111 and 123.33.222.100

  1. If you are using text file config do the following:

    You will need to replace the line in the "DXHOME/config/knowledge/democorp.dxc" file which has the "address" parameter listed with the following:

    address = tcp "123.33.222.111" port 19389, tcp "123.33.222.100" port 19389

    Restart your DSA by running the following commands to read the new configuration changes.
    % dxserver stop democorp
    % dxserver start democorp

    If you use a DSA in an IPv4/IPv6 hybrid environment, explicitly configure each interface that the DSA listens on, for example:

    address = tcp "fe80::20d:56ff:fed4:8300%5" port 19389, tcp "host1" port 19389

  2. If you are using DXmanager (xml config) to configure the DSA.

    You will need to add the multiple IP addresses when prompted for "Network Addresses" for connections. See image below:
