Thread: AD Sites and Services subnets

    AD Sites and Services subnets

    We have a large amount of subnets that all fall under a single supernet.
    In our case, we have VLANs such as 172.17.20.x, 172.17.8.x, etc, all
    of which fall under the supernet 172.17.0.0/16.

    Can we create a single subnet object to represent all of these subnets?
    If so, are there any problems we need to look out for? Is there a
    certain "migration" procedure to follow, as currently, we have a long
    list of objects for all of these individual subnets? Thanks for your help!

    Yes, if you entered 172.17.0.0/16 for your site subnet definition that will
    cover all of your other subnets.

    As for a migration procedure, just enter this new subnet and assign it to
    your site. Then you can delete all of the old subnet listings. Pretty
    straight forward.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your post and as well as to Joseph for sharing the
    information.

    Yes, Joseph is right, and there should be no problem when you do that.
    However, I would like to suggest not changing this as I don't think there
    is any inconvenience.

    Please schedule non-business time to do this, and if possible, make a test
    environment first.

    For more details, please refer to the following link or the help document:

    Thank you and have a nice day!
