Single ATA GW for Two DC's Port Mirroring Config RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I just would like to verify something quick. I plan to implement ATA in an environment with a single ATA GW. This environment also consists of two domain controllers and i would like to have this single GW monitor traffic for both domain controllers.

    Therefore would like to know if its possible to Mirror traffic of two DC's to the single ATA GW and what would be the config in that case?

    The ATA GW would be running as a VM on a Hyper-v host.

    Some guidance would be much appreciated.

  • Hi,

    it is possible. Within the ATA Center you have the ATA GW config. Here you have to specify at least one DC and you can also add other DCs here.

    Thanks for your response. So it is possible to Mirror traffic of two domain controllers into one ATA GW?

  • Hi,

    yes. It is also possible to mirror more than 2 into 1 ATA GW....depending on your server resources.

  • Hi

    Thanks for the information. I have done the server sizing according to the packet frequency based on the sizing tool therefore hopefully the suggested sizing should be able to handle the load of both the domain controllers
