          Bryan,

           

          Best practice is to only assign private IP addresses for management ports. Private addresses are non-routable on the internet so there is no chance of exposing the array to the internet.

          Private IP addresses are defined as any IP address in the following ranges:

              10.0.0.0  - 10.255.255.255

              172.16.0.0  -  172.31.255.255

              192.168.0.0  -  192.168.255.255

           

          Nimble Arrays should use private IP addresses whenever possible. Also, the Nimble Array must be behind a firewall that is properly configured and conforms to your security policy.

          If the array is protected by a properly configured firewall and uou no longer wish to receive the warning, you may disable it on the InfoSight Portal. 

          Under the Wellness tab:

          - Click the "Configure Wellness Rules" button

          - To disable case creation and notification for all arrays, uncheck the "Create Issue?" checkbox next to the rule named "Exposed Management IP Address"

           

          - To disable case creation and notification for a specific array:

          * Expand the "Exposed Management IP Address" rule by selecting the "+" sign next to the rule name

          * Uncheck the "Create Issue?" checkbox next to a specific serial number.
