I'm setting up a new 5508. I've used the config from a 4402, have successfully connected to the Service port to manage the device, but for some reason cannot connect to the Management interface. In this case, port 1.
The service port is connected to a Catalyst switch and grabbed an ip address (10.2.x.x subnet) no problem. I can access the 5508 via https using the SP. However, port 1 is connected to the same Catalyst switch, but on a different vlan (subnet 10.20.x.x). Both ends show that the interfaces are up, I can ping the interface from any other host on the network, but when I try to manage the device via https I cannot connect. We are using WCS and I cannot add the device from the WCS. About all I can do is ping that interface.
I've probably overlooked something very basic, but I'm baffled.
We have the same Cisco 5508 controller and we discovered that if you are using a computer on the same subnet as the Service interface, you will not be able to connect to the management one via HTTP or SSH, although you will be able to ping it. We changed the IP address of the service interface and then we were able to connect to the management one instead.
