Management Port not active?

This question has been answered by DELL-Donald Wi

We recently move the EqualLogic over to another rack and switch.

I connected the Ethernet console ports. 

I plugged in the a cable from the management port to the switch but see no green lights on the switch or the management port,.

Do I need to reactivate the management port?

If I log on as grpadmin via the console cable, is there a command to show the IP address of the management port?

  • Hello, 

     It sounds like the Management port feature wasn't actually configured.  The ETH2 was simply put on another IP subnet 

    You can do GrpName>member select MEMBERNAME eth sel 2 ipaddress x.x.x.x netmask x.x.x.x to change it. 

    Then go to the GUI and you can actually set it as the Dedicated Management interface. 

     Regards,

    Don
