    Before You Configure a NIC Proxy

    Before you configure a NIC proxy, you should have a good understanding of:

    • NIC resolution
    • NIC data types
    • How NIC proxies work

    See Locating Subscriber Management Information, NIC Resolution Process Overview, and NIC Proxy Configuration Overview.

    Note: 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.
