This powershell script is written for automating to export configuration from master NPS and then import it on a secondary NPS in order to keep a secondary NPS ready with latest configuration. Script must run on secondary node. The account that runs the script must be the member of both of the master and secondary servers local administrators group.

$nps_conf_share_path = "\\$nps_master\Tmp\NpsConf\NpsConf-$nps_master.xml" #Master Network Policy Server's share path.

Creating Multiple VLANs over Bonding Interfaces with Proper Routing on a Centos Linux Host

In this post, I am going to explain configuring multiple VLANs on a bond interface. First and foremost, I would like to describe the environment and give details of the infrastructure. The server has 4 Ethernet links to a layer 3 switch with names: enp3s0f0, enp3s0f1, enp4s0f0, enp4s0f1 There are two bond interfaces both configured as active-backup bond0, bond1 enp4s0f0 and enp4s0f1 interfaces are bonded as bond0. Bond0 is for making ssh connections and management only so corresponding switch ports are not configured in trunk mode. enp3s0f0 and enp3s0f1 interfaces are bonded as bond1. Bond1 is for data and corresponding switch ports are configured in trunk mode. Bond0 is the default gateway for the server and has IP address Bond1 has three subinterfaces with VLAN 4, 36, 41. IP addresses are,, respectively. Proper communication with other servers on the network we should use routing tables. There are three
