On N1148T-ON switch, USB type management port eth0 is not supported. Users need to configure inband management interface for switch management. The IP address of the inband management interface includes two types: static and dynamic, the configuration steps are described separately as below.

Configuring Static IP Address for Inband Management Interface

The following steps describe how to configure static IP address for inband management interface.

Procedure

Step1         Configure a VLAN and add port ge-1/1/1 to the VLAN.

admin@XorPlus# set vlans vlan-id 10
admin@XorPlus# set interface gigabit-ethernet ge-1/1/1 family ethernet-switching native-vlan-id 10

Step2         Enable the inband interface function for Layer 3 interface.

admin@XorPlus# set vlans vlan-id 10 l3-interface inband

Step3         Configure a static IP address for the inband management interface. Note that only the IPv4 address is supported.

admin@XorPlus# set vlan-interface interface inband vif inband address 20.1.1.1 prefix-length 24

Step4        Configure the gateway of the inband management interface.

admin@XorPlus# set vlan-interface interface inband vif inband gateway 20.1.1.100

Step5        After configurations, use ifconfig command to show the IP address of the inband management interface.

admin@XorPlus:~$ ifconfig
vlan.1   Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr cc:37:ab:b6:9c:33 
          inet addr: 20.1.1.1  Bcast: 20.1.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:7 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:746 (746.0 B)

Configuring Dynamic IP Address for Inband Management Interface

You need to complete the following tasks before configuring the dynamic IP address for inband management interface:

  • Configure a DHCP server.
  • Configure a routing protocol between the device and the DHCP server to ensure that the DHCP server is reachable from the device.

The following steps describe how to configure dynamic IP address for inband management interface.

Procedure

Step1         Configure a VLAN and add port ge-1/1/1 to the VLAN.

admin@XorPlus# set vlans vlan-id 10
admin@XorPlus# set interface gigabit-ethernet ge-1/1/1 family ethernet-switching native-vlan-id 10

Step2         Enable inband management interface function for Layer 3 interface.

admin@XorPlus# set vlans vlan-id 10 l3-interface inband

Step3         Enable DHCP function for the VLAN inband management interface.

admin@XorPlus# set vlan-interface interface inband dhcp true

Step4         After the configurations, use ifconfig command to show the IP address of the inband management interface.

admin@XorPlus:~$ ifconfig
vlan.1   Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr cc:37:ab:b6:9c:33 
          inet addr: 172.168.1.1  Bcast: 172.168.1.1 Mask:255.255.255.255
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:7 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:746 (746.0 B)
