Can't set IP management address on M4300-8X8F switch

Hi 

 

I can't set the IP management address on our M4300-8X8F switch:

 

(M4300-8X8F) #config

(M4300-8X8F) (Config)#ip management vlan 1 192.168.1.5 255.255.255.0

Failed to configure the IPv4 Management Interface

(M4300-8X8F) (Config)#show ip management

IPv4 Interface Status.......................... Down
IPv4 Management Interface...................... (not configured)
IP Address..................................... 0.0.0.0
Subnet Mask.................................... 0.0.0.0
Method.........................................
Routing Mode...................................
Default Gateway................................ 0.0.0.0

Source Interface............................... (not configured)
Burned In MAC Address.......................... 08:BD:43:71:5D:E9
Locally Administered MAC address............... 00:00:00:00:00:00
MAC Address Type............................... Burned In

IPv6 Management Interface is not Configured.


(M4300-8X8F) (Config)#

What am I doing wrong?

 

Best regards

Hi DavidA2014

 

(From M4300 CLI Manual page 58)

 

Can you make sure 192.168.1.5 isn't used anywhere else, for instance as Routing interface on a physical port, or as L3 IP interface on another VLAN; or even more likely on your out-of-band (OOB, serviceport)? For the OOB port, if that's the case and if you don't plan to use it because you don't have separated management network, you should clear it this way at first:

 

(M4300-8X8F) #config

(M4300-8X8F) (Config)#serviceport protocol none (M4300-8X8F) (Config)#serviceport ip none

(M4300-8X8F) (Config)#

 

Then, please use these commands, to specify the source IP address for all applications, including RADIUS, TACACS, DNS, SNTP, SNMP, and SysLog. Although VLAN 1 is default Management source interface on the in-band side, maybe your previous configuration attemps cleared that default. So let's reset  the IPv4 management interface and re-do the configuration:

 

(M4300-8X8F) #config

(M4300-8X8F) (Config)#no ip management (M4300-8X8F) (Config)#ip management source-interface vlan 1

(M4300-8X8F) (Config)#ip management vlan 1 192.168.1.5 255.255.255.0

(M4300-8X8F) (Config)#

 

Let us know how it goes - if I wasn't spot on, the Community will continue to help you.

Regards,

Hi Laurant

 

Thanks for your reply. I tried your commands but failed early on:

 

(M4300-8X8F) >enable

(M4300-8X8F) #config

(M4300-8X8F) (Config)#serviceport protocol none
                             ^
% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

and:

 

(M4300-8X8F) (Config)#no ip management

(M4300-8X8F) (Config)#ip management source-interface vlan 1

(M4300-8X8F) (Config)#ip management vlan 1 192.168.1.5 255.255.255.0

Failed to configure the IPv4 Management Interface

what am I doing wrong?

Sorry, the serviceport protocol command isn't in Global Config mode but in general Exec mode per the M4300 CLI Manual page 58.

 

So first set of commands should be:

 

(M4300-8X8F) >enable

(M4300-8X8F) #serviceport protocol none (M4300-8X8F) #serviceport ip none

(M4300-8X8F) #

  

Then second set of commands still, in Global Config mode:

 

(M4300-8X8F) #config

(M4300-8X8F) (Config)#no ip management (M4300-8X8F) (Config)#ip management source-interface vlan 1

(M4300-8X8F) (Config)#ip management vlan 1 192.168.1.5 255.255.255.0

(M4300-8X8F) (Config)#

 

Let us know how it goes - if I wasn't spot on, the Community will continue to help you.
