    Network Interface Address
    Select the network interface if you are installing the components on a multi-homed host.
    The interface has the following format:
    <IP Address>

    Administrator Daemon
    connects to the next available ZooKeeper server.
    If you have enabled security for the Informatica domain, the installer enables the
    SSL Network Authentication
    option. VDS uses the same SSL certificates used by the Informatica domain.
