An IP address is configured on the OOB management interface of each switch. This interface is used to access the SFS GUI, and it is also used as the VLT backup link. It also enables console access through SSH as an alternative to the serial console.
A management route is also configured if routing is used on the OOB management network.
This is done on each leaf 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 100.67.170.14/24
OS10(conf-if-ma-1/1/1)# no shutdown
OS10(config)# management route 100.67.0.0/16 100.67.170.254
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 are not required for the deployment example in this guide and may be added later if needed. The hostname of the switch may be configured at the CLI or in the SFS GUI. In this guide, the SFS GUI is used.
