Recently we have installed a BE Appliance 3600 in our office and I have a question concerning its security configuration. For the 3 usable NICs (eth1 - 3), we have already connected each of them to separate subnets (e.g. subnet A, B, C for easier illustration), wanting to dedicate one NIC for the backup jobs in each subnet. Furthermore, our network environment has assigned one subnet for management purpose, in that case, I will put it as subnet A.
So my question consists of 2 parts: First, right now I can access to the management web GUI via each IP assigned to the NICs (https://<IP address>/appliance/). Does the appliance support to apply a setting that only the IP of eth1 (connected to subnet A) can access the web GUI while the other 2 NICs are solely for backup purpose?
[Here comes the 2nd part:] The same goes for the remote launch. I can successfully use the BkupLnch.rdp shortcut with the above 3 IPs (of course, after making changes to /etc/hosts on my PC). Does it support to set the same restriction?
All in all, what I want to achieve is: only 1 NIC is for management purpose of the whole appliance while the other 2 are for backup of their responsible subnets.
...I'll escalate this for you...post back if nobody from Symantec replies, because you might then have to log a support call. Either way, please post back with details if these are provided to you!
