This feature enables users to onboard devices that have a static IP address allocated to them while still being reachable from the rest of the enterprise network.
This feature is supported on Celona private networks with Edge clusters running software version 2306 or higher.
Create an external IP domain with static IP addressing scheme and pool of static IP addresses to use
Once your IP domain is created, you can edit it to modify the static IP address pool. Here are the steps to edit your IP domain
Log in to your account and navigate to the edge cluster details page.
Find the External IP domain you want to edit and click on the
Staticas the IP addressing scheme.
Add a static IP address pool to be uses for devices associated with the IP domain
Click on the
Updatebutton to confirm the changes.
Note - Static IP address pool for different IP domain should not overlap
Next, create a device group for devices that should use static IP addressing scheme. Set the IP domain policy for the device group to the IP domain with static IP addressing scheme created in Step 2.
Log in to your account and navigate to the device groups page.
Click on the
Enter a name for your device group and select the devices you want to add.
Select the IP domain that contains the static IP address pool you wish to use for your devices.
Save your changes, and the device group will now use your selected IP domain.
To set an explicit static IP address during activation, follow these steps:
Static IP address can also added or updated on on the device details page if you did not set a static IP address during activation.
Static IP address allocated to the device can be set at the time of device activation or on the device details page post-activation
Static IP address provided by the user for device should be part of the device's IP domain static IP address pool list.
If an explicit static IP address is not provided, then the IP address service will automatically allocate an IP from the static IP address pool configured in the IP domain
Users cannot assign a static IP address not in the IP range assigned to the IP domain.
Users cannot assign the same static IP address to multiple devices.
If the user changes the device group of a single device, then the explicit static IP address on the device will be removed.
