An IP address is configured on the OOB management interface of each leaf and spine switch at Site 1 and Site 2. This interface is used to access the SFS UI and is used by OMNI to communicate with the SFS leader switch at each site. The OOB management interface is also used for the VLT backup link on the leaf switches, and it enables console access using SSH as an option to the serial console.
A management route is also configured if routing is used on the OOB management network.
Configuration is done on each leaf and spine switch as follows:
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
Note: Configure a unique OOB management IP address on each switch. The IP addresses shown are examples only. The management route should not be 0.0.0.0/0, or this route may interfere with the data network’s default route. Use a specific destination prefix, as shown.
Other global settings may also be configured here, such as ip name-server and ntp server if used by the switch. These additional switch settings 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.
