About this task
If you will be supporting the use of LiveNames in your Sametime
deployment, you should deploy all Sametime
Meeting Servers and Sametime
Proxy Servers within the same subnet. It is suggested that you configure WebSphere
® Application Server Network Deployment with a single subnet for network traffic. You can use one Network interface card (NIC) on a physical machine or logical partition (LPAR). You can also reference a single Domain name system (DNS) server in the network configuration for the physical machine or LPAR.
