Configure management port

The controller includes an Ethernet port used for system management. If necessary, you can change its transmission parameters and IP addresses.

About this task

During this procedure, you select port 1 and then determine the speed and port addressing method. Port 1 connects to the network where the management client can access the controller and System Manager.
Note: Do not use port 2 on either controller. Port 2 is reserved for use by technical support.

Procedure

  1. Select Hardware.
  2. If the graphic shows the drives, click Show back of shelf.
    The graphic changes to show the controllers instead of the drives.
  3. Click the controller with the management port you want to configure.
    The controller's context menu appears.
  4. Select Configure management ports.
    The Configure Management Ports dialog box opens.
  5. Make sure port 1 is displayed, and then click Next.
  6. Select the configuration port settings, and then click Next.
    If you select Enable IPv4, a dialog box opens for selecting IPv4 settings after you click Next. If you select Enable IPv6, a dialog box opens for selecting IPv6 settings after you click Next. If you select both options, the dialog box for IPv4 settings opens first, and then after you click Next, the dialog box for IPv6 settings opens.
  7. Configure the IPv4 and/or IPv6 settings, either automatically or manually.
