During installation, you set up the networks that carry the different types of Data Director network traffic. You can reconfigure Data Director networks, for example, to improve throughput or provide better isolation for certain types of traffic, using vSphere Client. You can reconfigure certain network adapter settings in Data Director.

Data Director has the following types of network traffic.

Web Console Network

vCenter Network

DB Name Service Network

Internal Network

DB Access Network

After you change network configuration using vSphere Client, you can confirm the changes in the Data Director Network Setup page. You might have to reenter your network settings after changing the mapping for the Web Console network, Web Console network adapter, and vCenter network. You might have to do this if you use static IP addressing. Network configuration information that you might have to reenter includes the netmask, gateway, and DNS Server information.
