I work with IBM DataPower appliances on a daily basis and managing them is mostly done through a web GUI. This isn't ideal as it means that ensuring consistency for changes is difficult due to the likelihood of human error. I've open-sourced a Maven project I created to generate Java classes on GitHub, it might be useful to someone looking to script changes to multiple DataPower appliances.
IBM DataPower boxes have several ethernet interfaces and can be
misconfigured in a variety of ways. Recently I looked into the configuration of network interfaces on these appliances and IBM's documentation is lacking in some essential details. So I thought I would write a post about what I found.
