We are installing the AP9475 DCE servers. There are a total of 4 ethernet ports, the first can be configured in the DCE Console Public LAN tab and second in the Private LAN tab. If we would like to configure the third port for a redundant connection to another switch, can you advise how to do that?

Dear Lai Yuan Jiun,
Unfortunately this is not possible, for example, I answered this question in detail on page Re: Deploying and configuring a StruxureWare Data Center Expert virtual appliance:
The fact is that regardless of the number of physical network interfaces of the server, DCE-software can handle only the first two physical interfaces (in ascending order of their MAC addresses). All this is clearly visible on your screenshots of the console login apcsetup and the DCE client software.
I remind you that Schneider Electric manufactures appliance AP9475 (Enterprise model) in the form of physical 2U server, which has 4 network interfaces. But because of the reason given above, it is possible to use only the first two of them. Therefore, configuring more than two network interfaces for DCE software simply does not make sense 😀.
