Spirent TestCenter: Does the Lab Server require both the Admin port and TestBed port to have its IP addresses configured?
The Admin port is required but not the TestBed port.
Only if the topology as indicate in the Lab Server install documents was used, then it would need the TestBed port configured.
Some Q & A below:
According to the GETTING STARTED document I need to configure a VM and a Hypervisor server address.
<Yes there is two level for the configuration, one at the linux and one at the LS VM for as I can understand... the documentation been very unclear…>
Can someone provide more information why this is required in addition to ADMIN and TESTBED port?
<The new LS has 4 physical ports (One Admin and 3 testBed)but you can still use the Admin port only or the Admin and one TestBed port like we did with the previous LS.>
Should I be able to connect via telnet to the labserver?
<If telnet doesn't work try SSH; Login/password are the same for both level (admin / spt_admin ). To access to the second level (the LS VM) once the first one has been configured, you need to type server connect. Don’t forget to do a reboot, seems that the activate is not enougth>
Should the Bare metal/Hypervisor server network address be the same as the ADMIN (management port) address?
<No they should be different which means that we need 4 IP address in total if you use the testbed port.>
