I am trying to learn how the Cisco NAC appliances work. I have created a small self-contained test network with a Server 2003 domain controller, a fake domain setup and some workstations joined to the domain.
I have two NAC appliances, one is the Server and one is the Manager.
When I follow the instructions from the manual to install the server from the CD everything seems to go fine. I plan to use it as a bridge in the network so I applied the same IP address to both the eth0 and eth1 interface (the eth1 interface is not connected to the network during install as per instructions)
Here is the issue I am having: After configuration is finished and the CCA server re-boots, I cannot ping the server when it is connected by eth0. If I swap the network cable over to eth1, however I can ping the device.
Is this normal?
