Hi,

I have a PC that is running the MAS agent and has two network adapters with
IP addresses on different subnets. One of the addresses is for an adapter
that talks to MAS primary / relay server (172.16.x.x) and the other is for
an isolated network on the other side of the agent PC (192.168.x.x).

The agent is happily using its 172.16.x.x adapter to talk to the primary
and relay servers but the agent is being reported in MAS console on the
primary server as having IP 192.168.x.x. This causes a problem when
creating relay server rules because the primary server is looking at the
192.168.x.x address and hence the relay server is not being correctly
assigned.

Is there a way for the relay server rules to look at both address or for
the agent to only report the address that it is using to talk to the
servers with ?

Thanks
Phil Beutel

Hello Phil,

You can try to advertise the server address using DNS instead of IP. Open the
server options and look at the "Server" tab. There is a setting for "Secondary
Command and Relay server address resolution".

What José says will apply to command servers, and of course what Scott
suggests of disabling the local network interface will work.

In a lot of situations, manually disabling network interfaces is not an
option.

What you mentioned for client agents is indeed a limitation that
engineering plans to address post version 5.1.

Usually, I have trouble going the other direction... Multiple NICs on
the command server which is helped by using DNS name resolution for
the server. But, in your case, the agent IP is getting confused.

You might try uninstalling the agent, disabling the local NIC,
installing the agent... Then after it gives you what you want (in
terms of the external NIC) then re-enable the local NIC.
