|BYNET Virtual Switches||
|The labels of the BYNET switches. The first is required in MPP systems. The second is for redundancy and performance in MPP systems. This setting is the name specified when you created the vSwitch in vSphere. The setting should be empty for single-node systems.|
|CMIC Virtual Switches||
|The labels of the server management switches. These are only used in MPP systems with server management. The second is for redundancy and performance in MPP systems. This setting is the name specified when you created the vSwitch in vSphere.|
|DSC Virtual Switch||dsu_vswitch||The label of the DSC switch. This setting is the name specified when you created the vSwitch in vSphere.|
|Public Submask Setting||public_submask||The public submask name in
|Gateway Setting||gateway||The gateway name or IP

If you plan to use Temporal, change the setting to true. If you do not plan to use it, accept the default of false. Refer to Temporal Settings.
