I am bringing up a purview appliance with mirrored interfaces to monitor my 2 wireless controllers, and my wired network.  I am using 2 of the built-in purview appliance interfaces for the mirror to the wireless controllers, and I have installed the PV-A-300-10G-UG I/O module for a 10G link to my S6 to monitor mirrored ports in my network.

I have re-run dnetconfig to try to activate the 10 G port, but it seems like at the most I can only get 2 monitoring interfaces to be active at a time.  In the Purview deployment guide it mentions editing /etc/network/interfaces to add additional interfaces, but this file clearly indicates that it should not be edited (see below)

Am I missing something?  Is there a better way to bring up the 10 G interface?

Keith, can you check the  /etc/network/interfaces file on the Purview appliance before and after enforce?

Also can you check the /opt/appid/conf/adppidconfig.xml file before and after enforce?

Also looking at the usr/postinstall/dnetconfig.properties pre and post enforce so we are certain what is changing.

If you run dnetconfig and select option 4 (Manual Mode) you'll be able to edit /etc/network/interfaces without it being overwritten.
