Before You Configure a NIC Proxy
Before you configure a NIC proxy, you should have a good understanding of:
NIC data types
How NIC proxies work
See Locating Subscriber Management Information, NIC Resolution Process Overview, and NIC Proxy Configuration Overview.
You cannot configure a local NIC host when the NIC is running on a C Series Controller.
The values that you configure for a NIC proxy depend on the particular application; for example, you must specify the type of data used for the key and the type of data used for the value for each application.
Before you configure a NIC proxy for an application, obtain the following information from the system manager who maintains the NIC configuration for NIC hosts:
The name of the resolver that the application uses.
The type of key the application will provide to the NIC host.
The type of value the NIC host is to return.
Whether or not the application will use a local NIC host.
If the application does not use a local NIC host:
The size of the NIC proxy cache.
The groups to be listed for NIC host selection. These groups provide NIC replication.
