The BMC web application allows provisioning of primary and secondary host management interfaces. When the host management interfaces are configured, a direct link from BMC is enabled to the EMA for installing and upgrading the SBC 7000 application.
Use the following procedure to configure the primary and secondary host management interfaces:
Log on to SBC BMC using the IP address configured in the previous section.
The SBC BMC main screen appears.
Click Configuration > Platform Management Network tab. The Platform Management Network Settings screen is displayed.
A message appears to enter the management IP addresses for the first time installation.
- Click OK.
Configure the following network settings for both the Management Interface 0 and 1.
- IPv4 Address or/and IPv6 Address
- Default Gateway
When coming from an application software release prior to SBC 3.1.x, an IPv4-mapped IPv6 address is applied as an unusable placeholder in the IPv6 management address, this mapped address must be removed or set to a valid IPv6 address when updating the management addresses via BMC.If you are updating a new Management IP address through BMC and click Save, reinstall the SBC application software (see the message appears in the below figure). Updating management IP using CLI/EMS/EMA will get updated automatically in BMC and re-installation is not required.
