Configure node-management LIFs

Contributors NetAppZacharyWambold

After the controller modules are physically installed, you can power on each one and configure its node-management LIF.

About this task

You must perform this procedure on both the nodes.

  1. Access the controller module through the serial console.

  2. Power on the controller module, and wait while the node boots and the Cluster Setup wizard automatically starts on the console.

    Welcome to the cluster setup wizard.
    You can enter the following commands at any time:
      "help" or "?" - if you want to have a question clarified,
      "back" - if you want to change previously answered questions, and
      "exit" or "quit" - if you want to quit the cluster setup wizard.
       Any changes you made before quitting will be saved.
    You can return to cluster setup at any time by typing "cluster setup".
    To accept a default or omit a question, do not enter a value.
  3. Follow the prompts in the web-based Cluster Setup wizard to configure a node management LIF using the networking information you gathered earlier.

  4. Type exit after node management LIF configuration is complete to exit the setup wizard and complete the administration tasks.

    Otherwise, press Enter to complete cluster setup using the command line interface:
  5. Log in to the node as the admin user, which does not require a password.
