About additional network configuration options

During the licensing and initial configuration procedures, you configure a single VLAN and associated self IP addresses. This is all the networking configuration required to start managing devices. However, if you find you need additional VLANs, the BIG-IQ® system provides you with the ability to add them as required.

Configuring an additional VLAN

You must have licensed the BIG-IQ® system before you can add a VLAN.
You have the option to configure an additional VLAN after you license and perform the initial configuration of the BIG-IQ system.
  1. Log in to BIG-IQ System with your administrator user name and password.
  2. At the top of the screen, click Configuration.
  3. Hover over the VLANs panel and click the + sign when it appears.
  4. In the Name and Description fields, type a name and description to identify this new VLAN.
  5. From the Device list, select the BIG-IQ system to associate with this new VLAN.
  6. From the Interface list, select the port that you want this VLAN to use.

    The interface is a physical or virtual port that you use to connect the BIG-IQ system to managed devices in your network.

  7. Click the Add button to save this VLAN.
  8. Hover on the Self IP Addresses panel and click the + when it appears.
  9. In the Name and Address and Description fields, type the name, and self IP address.
  10. From the Device list, select the BIG-IQ system to associate with this new self IP address.
  11. From the VLAN list, select the VLAN to which you want to associate this self IP address.
  12. Click the Add button to save this self IP address.
