To turn clients into GUPs, first configure single or multiple Group Update Providers. A client will become a GUP when the data entered matches its own attributes. The Explicit Group Update Provider list will then be used to map the clients to their respective Explicit GUPs.
This can be done by either specifying the IP Address of an individual GUP in the Server Farm Network, or by specifying the Network Address of the Server Farm Network.
Note: You can calculate the value of the Client Subnet Network Address and the GUP Subnet Network Address by using one of the subnet calculators readily available on the Internet. This address is sometimes also referred to as the network prefix or network ID.
The workflow could be summarized as follows:
"Am I in the subnet that is supposed to use the Explicit GUP?"
"Which subnet is the Explicit GUP in - is it in a different subnet than mine?"
"Who is the actual GUP?"
Note: If multiple GUPs are defined in either the client's local subnet or the Explicit GUP list, the client will use the GUP with the lowest IP Address.
