NAM question

Unanswered Question
Mar 5th, 2009

HI,

I have a question about setting up my NAM.

The document says that the device has to be on the same subnet as its parent interface. I don't understand.

What is the necessity and why it is required.

Any document to explain would be appriciated

I have this problem too.

What NAM are you configuring, and in what device? What version of software is running on the device?

In the documentation that I have there is a note that states:

“On the NAM, the IP address must belong to the subnet of the parent interface for the Analysis-Module slot/0 (such as fa0/0). The NAM default gateway should be the parent interface IP.”

In my 3845 the config is

interface Integrated-Service-Engine1/0

ip address 10.30.59.9 255.255.255.240

no keepalive

In the NAM the config is 10.1.1.26 which is not on a network I am using.

I believe if patch in the NAM I will be able to get to it via HTTP but do I need to set the internal interface to the same subnet as the port that I want to monitor?

The NAM's IP must be in the same subnet as the Integrated-Service-Engine interface. So, you need to put the NAM's IP address in the 10.30.59.0/28 subnet. The NAM's default gateway should be 10.30.59.9. This is just for purposes of management. The other monitored interfaces do not have to be in the same subnet.
