4900M with CNA

Unanswered Question

We have just received a 4900M switch and I am unfamiliar with this model.  I am wondering if someone could guide me in setting up the management port for access via the Cisco Network Assistant?

I have the IP info setup and I can ping the switch but the CNA throws an error when trying to connect.

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm not familiar with this model either but why not try CLI?

conf t

interface VLAN 1

ip address

no shutdown



Hope this helps.

The 4900M is a bit tricky since the force vrf policies on the switch.  This is my recommendation:

Switch# ping vrf  mgmtVrf ip address

an example is "ping vrm mgmtVrf" (or whatever IP you are looking for)

Trace Routing is the same thing...

"traceroute vrf mgmtVrf"

Remember that the vrf (name of vrf) is cap sensitive.  So it must match the exact syntax you have setup.  By default, 4900Ms use mgmtV(cap V)rf.

I really cant help you with the GUI Network assistant but I can help with CLI.
