Network Team Interface properties

The following table describes the field names shown in the HPE StoreEasy management console status screen when viewing a particular network team interface. You can configure some of these items when you create network interfaces. You can add or modify others when you edit a network information. Other properties provide information only and are not modifiable by the user from the management console.

Property Description

Indicates the user-defined name of the network team interface. The user assigns this name when creating the network team interface. The name should be user-friendly so that a person viewing the name understands the purpose of the interface.


Provides the Virtual LAN ID (VLAN ID) number. The number indicates which VLAN the network interface team uses. Defaults to zero ( 0 ). You cannot modify or delete the primary VLAN ID.

Primary Primary IP address of the network team interface.
Network Team Name of the network team associated with this network team interface. Displays as a link to the network team page.
IP Configuration
Indicates that the network interface uses either DHCP to assign a dynamic IP address, or uses an assigned, static IP address for communication across the network. Choosing dynamic or static depends on business requirements. Check with your network administrator to determine which mode is best for your purposes. The network uses the IP address to identify the network device that sends or receives data.
  • DHCP (default): A DHCP server on the network assigns an IP address for the connection. DHCP addresses change dynamically. Each time a network interface connects to the network, DHCP assigns an IP address, and the assigned address can be different each time.

  • Static IP: Allows configuration of a static, or permanent, IP address and associated information (subnet mask and default gateway). A static IP address remains the same each time the network interface connects to the network.

IPv4 Address IPv4 address used by the operating system that is being deployed.
Subnet Mask

A 32-bit numerical address that is a division of the IP address into network address and host address.

In IP networks, a network shares a particular subnet address. Subnetworks are networks arbitrarily segmented by a network administrator in order to provide a multilevel, hierarchical routing structure while shielding the subnetwork from the addressing complexity of attached networks.


The gateway should have a static address, because changing the address can cause packets not to be delivered. The gateway is typically assigned either the highest or lowest network address. This is not a requirement, but many organizations use a consistent addressing scheme to facilitate network planning.

DNS Configuration – Domain Name System (DNS) provides name to IP address mapping so that you can use a friendly name to describe the interface rather than an IP address. The DNS server maps the IP addresses on a network to names on the name server. For example, when a user types a domain name into a browser, the DNS server maps that domain name to its IP address and opens a communication channel.

The recommended DNS configuration includes both a primary and a secondary DNS server. This provides redundancy so that users can still connect, even if one DNS server becomes unavailable.

Primary Default DNS server. DNS servers have an IPv4 addresses applied across all port sets and subnets defined within the configuration.
Secondary Secondary DNS server. Used if the primary DNS server is unavailable.
Tertiary Tertiary server (optional). Used if the primary and secondary DNS servers are unavailable.
