Does Ghost Solution Suite (GSS) support a multi-homed network configuration to install the GSS server server?


GSS 3.x all versions


Currently the Ghost Solution Suite Server does not have support for multi-homed servers.  This includes servers with more than one physical NIC and servers with multiple virtual NICs supported through a teamed NIC configuration.  GSS is intended to be installed on a server with a single network interface, and any other setup is unsupported at this time.    Some environments and situations my function correctly but multi-homed servers that do not function properly may not be able to be properly troubleshot until they are configured in a supported manor.
