system service-processor network auto-configuration enable

Enable Service Processor Auto-Configuration

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

The system service-processor network auto-configuration enable command enables the automatic network configuration for the SP. This is a cluster-wide configuration. Every node in the cluster will use the specified subnet to allocate IP address, subnet mask and gateway address for the SP configuration. When the SP automatic network configuration is enabled, you do not need to manually manage the SP network of individual nodes. A node that subsequently joins the cluster uses the specified subnet to configure its SP network automatically.

Prior to running this command, the subnet you want to use for the SP automatic network configuration must already be defined in the cluster and must have no resource conflicts with the SP network interface.

Parameters

-address-family {IPv4|IPv6} - Subnet Address Family
This parameter specifies whether the IPv4 or the IPv6 automatic configuration is to be enabled for the SP.
-subnet-name <text> - Subnet Name
This parameter specifies the network subnet that the SP will use for automatic network configuration.

Examples

The following example enables the automatic network configuration for IPv4 on the SP. It first displays the current SP network configuration, displays available network subnet in the cluster, and then enable the SP to use the subnet for IPv4 automatic configuration.
