Enabling the virtual domain feature

You can use the web UI to enable the virtual domain feature. By default, the virtual domain feature is not enabled, and the GUI for virtual domain configuration is hidden.

Before you begin:

  • You must have super user permission (user admin) to enable the virtual domain feature.

To enable the virtual domain feature:

  1. Go to System > Settings.
  2. The configuration page displays the Basic tab.

  3. Click edit, on the top right.
  4. Enable Virtual Domain, a button on the far lower left.
  5. Save the configuration.

Note: You can also enable the virtual domain feature from under the Dashboard > Status tab.

 Super admin login with virtual domain shows the landing page after the admin administrator logs into the system when the virtual domain feature is enabled. From here, the admin administrator can create virtual domains, assign network interfaces to virtual domains, create admin users for virtual domains, and navigate to the system and feature configuration pages for the virtual domains, including the root (default) domain.

When a non-admin user with a delegated administrator account logs in, the landing page is the standard landing page. Such users cannot perform the tasks related to virtual domain administration that the admin administrator performs.
