Unhappy Production IP and Management IP in Linux


Hello Experts,

Can you please shed some light on what is Production IP address and Management IP address in Linux servers?

What is the significance of these two?

When to use what?

Thanks in advance!

there is nothing formal about these, just coporate / personal conventions. I would take a production IP to be the interface on a machine that would be serving the application, web server, fileserver etc to it's user base, e.g. the internet, whereas the management IP would often be connected to a separate management network for machine logins etc.

Question Production IP and Management IP in Linux servers

Hi,

Thanks much for your response.

Our issue here is:
If we use management IP our application works fine. But if we use production IP we get the below error:

*** validateTcpConnect: rejecting a connection from a host which identifies itself as VC_HOSTNAME="abc001" (and which TCP/IP identifies as "abc001.xyz.com"), because the hosts map entry specifies a different TCP/IP name/address

Any clues on this?

Thanks,
Jaili

I haven't got a clue, again these are mere conventions / preferences. They mean nothing in technical terms. I have no idea what you actually mean by "use production IP", no idea what tool you're using. Looks like some sort of addressing issue from the useful looking error there.
