VLAN tagging, might also need to set static routes (IP Reflect will help)

Configure a single device on multiple networks:

server_ifconfig <movername> -create -Device <device_name> -name <if_name> -protocol IP <ipaddr> <ipmask> <ipbroadcast>

for example:

server_ifconfig server_2 -create -Device cge2 -name cge2_1 -protocol IP 172.24.102.10 255.255.255.0 172.24.102.255

server_ifconfig server_2 -create -Device cge2 -name cge2_2 -protocol IP 172.24.103.10 255.255.255.0 172.24.103.255

Verify the configuration settings on multiple networks:

server_ifconfig <movername> <if_name>

for example:

server_ifconfig server_2 cge2_1

After you configure a single device on multiple network, you can assign a different VLAN tag to each interface.

server_ifconfig <movername> <if_name> vlan=<vlanID>

for example:

server_ifconfig server_2 cge2_1 vlan=102

server_ifconfig server_2 cge2_2 vlan=103

Verify the settings for each interface:

server_ifconfig <movername> <if_name>

Hope this helps.

remember that you must configure VLAN tagging on the switch as well.

Thanks Dynamox. Yes, VLAN tagging must be configured at both DM and switch, ensure that the IP network switch settings match the device settings.
