The Symantec Messaging Gateway appliance becomes unreachable from within the network if only "eth1" is plugged into the network
Last Updated July 31, 2012
The Symantec Messaging Gateway appliance becomes unreachable from within the network. This occurs if both network interfaces have been configured and connected to the network, and the cable is unplugged from the "eth0" interface.
This is an expected behavior of the Linux kernel's IP routing features, when IP addresses are on the same subnet and assigned to both network interfaces. The Linux kernel automatically creates two separate routes for each interface on the same subnet.
This is an expected behavior for the Messaging Gateway appliances.
