During installation, you set up the networks that carry the different types of Data Director network traffic.

Data Director has the following types of network traffic.

Web Console Network

vCenter Network

DB Name Service Network

Internal Network

DB Access Network

You can reconfigure Data Director networks to improve throughput, for example, or provide better isolation for certain types of traffic, or change network adapter configurations due to changes in your networking environments. Depending on what network configuration you modify, you make the change through the vSphere Client or in the Data Director Web Console, or both. This chapter provides detailed instructions to make network configuration changes.
