4500 Management port

Hi,

We own several WS-C4506 with Supervisor II+ running  IOS image 4500-ipbase-mz.122-31.SGA6.bin,

i want to utilize the mgmt port for out-of-band management but i can't find it on the interface list.

Does anyone know how to activate and configure this port?

Cheers,

Talm M

4500 Management port

hi Talm,

Sorry  - accidently deleted prevous post to your question.

The Ethernet management port can be used (in  ROMMON mode only) to recover a switch software image that has been  corrupted or destroyed due to a network catastrophe. When using Cisco  IOS Release 12.2(50)SG or later, this port can also perform the same  functions as the console port. For earlier Cisco IOS software releases,  this port is not active while the switch is operating normally.

For 12.2(50)SG and later releases, please see the configuration guidelines:
