Configure the Internet Protocol (IP) Address Settings on a Switch through the Command Line Interface (CLI)
The switch can have multiple IP addresses. Each IP address can be assigned to specified interfaces or ports, Link Aggregation Groups (LAGs), or Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs). To remotely manage the device, an IP address must be defined to access the switch. This allows you to easily configure or troubleshoot the device through the web-based utility, Telnet, or Secure Shell (SSH).
The IP address of the switch can be manually configured or automatically received from a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. If there are no DHCP servers available, the switch will use its factory default IP address which is 192.168.1.254.
This article provides instructions on how to configure the IP address settings of your switch through the Command Line Interface (CLI).
1.4.7.05 — Sx500
184.108.40.206 — Sx350, SG350X, Sx550X
Configure the IP Address of the Switch through the CLI
Important: If your switch is in one of the stacking modes with a Backup Master present, it is recommended to configure a static IP address to prevent disconnecting from the network during a Stacking Master switchover. This is because when the backup master takes control of the stack, when using DHCP, it might receive a different IP address than the one that was received by the original master-enabled unit of the stack.
