An IP address is configured on the OOB management interface of each switch. This interface is used to access the SFS web UI, and it is also used as the VLT backup link. Also, it enables console access using SSH as an option to the serial console.
If routing is used on the OOB management network, a management route is also configured.
Run the following commands on each switch:
OS10# configure terminal
OS10(config)# interface mgmt 1/1/1
OS10(conf-if-ma-1/1/1)# no ip address dhcp
OS10(conf-if-ma-1/1/1)# ip address 100.67.76.30/24
OS10(conf-if-ma-1/1/1)# no shutdown
OS10(config)# management route 100.67.0.0/16 100.67.76.254
OS10# write memory
Other global settings may also be configured here, such as
ip name-server and
ntp server if used by the switch. These settings may also be configured later in the SFS UI but are not required for the deployment example in this guide. The hostname of the switch may be configured at the CLI or in the SFS UI. In this guide, the SFS UI is used.
