Static NAT Considerations

Any number of static NAT instances can be monitored by one NNMi management server, as long as each instance is configured with a unique tenant. For more information on tenancy, see NNMi Security and Multi-Tenancy and Configure Tenants in the NNMi help.

See the following diagram for an example of a static NAT configuration.

Example Static NAT Configurations

Note Nodes that belong to the default tenant can have Layer 2 connections to any node in any tenant. Nodes within any tenant other than the default tenant can have Layer 2 connections only to devices within the same tenant or the default tenant.

Subnets are tenant specific (in other words, subnets do not span tenants). The benefit here is that you can use the same subnet on different tenants.

Router Redundancy Groups (RRGs) cannot span tenants.

Tip Assign any infrastructure device that interconnects multiple NAT domains (such as the NAT gateway) to the default tenant. This ensures that NNMi displays the Layer 2 connections your workgroup (and customers) need to see.

Note Devices within the default Security Group are visible from all views. To control access to a device, assign that device to a Security Group other than default Security Group.
