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. Additionally, 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.
This is done on each 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(conf-if-ma-1/1/1)# exit OS10(config)# management route 100.67.0.0/16 100.67.76.254 OS10(config)# end 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 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.
