Network Planning (Task Map)

The following table lists different tasks for configuring the network. The table includes a description of what each task accomplishes and the section in the current documentation where the specific steps to perform the task are detailed.

For Information
1. Plan your hardware requirements and network topology
Determine the types of equipment that you need and the layout of this equipment at your site.
2. Obtain a registered IP address for your network
Your network must have a unique IP address if you plan to communicate outside your local network, for example, over the Internet.
3. Devise an IP addressing scheme for your systems, based on your IPv4 network prefix or IPv6 site prefix.
Determine how addresses are to be deployed at your site.
4. Create a list that contains the IP addresses and host names of all machines on your network.
Use the list to build network databases
5. Determine which name service to use on your network.
Decide whether to use NIS, LDAP, DNS, or the network databases in the local /etc directory.
6. Establish administrative subdivisions, if appropriate for your network
Decide if your site requires that you divide your network into administrative subdivisions
7. Determine where to place routers in the network design.
If your network is large enough to require routers, create a network topology that supports them.
8. If required, design a strategy for subnets.
You might need to create subnets for administering your IP address space or to make more IP addresses available for users.
For IPv4 subnet planning, refer to What Is Subnetting?

For IPv6 subnet planning, refer to Creating a Numbering Scheme for Subnets
