You can manually specify the IP addresses to be used by the source and destination servers for the control and data connections of a replication policy.

A file replication policy requires the Service EVS IPs to be able to route data to each other. To specify exactly which EVS IP addresses to use, you can create a per-policy address configuration file.

Note: You must have root access on the SMU to create the file.

The configuration file must be placed on the SMU in the following location:

/opt/smu/adc_replic/conf/replication_policies

Each of the policies has its own sub-directory. The configuration text file must be located in the parent directory above and called <policy name>_addresses. The policy names must match exactly.

Note: Create this file before creating the policy.

The file contents consist of IP addresses and port numbers as follows:

SRC_CTRL_ADDRESS=IP-Address
DEST_CTRL_ADDRESS=IP-Address
SRC_DATA_ADDRESS=IP-Address
DEST_DATA_ADDRESS=IP-Address
DEST_DATA_PORT=Port-Number

IPv4 addresses should be specified in conventional dot notation: X.X.X.X

IPv6 address should be specified in conventional notation, for example: ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff

You do not need to specify all values. However, if you specify one DATA address, you must also specify the other DATA address and they must have a common IP family type (both IPv4 or both IPv6).

Note: The CLI command ndmp-option data_port_range does not apply when using a policy address file.
