we have UCS C220M3 server, which have 3 NIC ports, one for Management and two for Data. I need to configure 1 IP address for Management port (for CIMC), other two ports will be used for normal data transfer. when i give the IP for CIMC and connected the cable for Management port CIMC is not accessible, but when I connect the cable for nornal other ports CICM is accessible, how can i use management port to access CIMC ?
When you get in to the CIMC, click on the admin tab on the left hand side, then select Network from the menu. You will have the network settings open and on that page there is the NIC Properties, make sure you change NIC Mode to Dedicated and save the changes, this will make the management port the dedicated link into the CIMC.
1-The cable is attached and functional in the port shown below
2-In the CIMC configuration screen (accessed by pressing F8 when the server boots and show the Cisco logo)
3-Make sure "NIC mode" is set to Dedicated and F10 to save the settings
If the cable is connected to the right port (shown the beggining) give it a try to the answer above given by
gazzamitch (I gave 5 stars!) that is a lot better than having to reboot the server (in case it is in production already). This will not cause data disruption but will take you out of CIMC probably for a really short period of time (just the time you take to login again)
Shared LOM EXT (default)—This is shared LOM extended mode. This is the factory-default setting, along with Active-active NIC redundancy and DHCP-enabled. With this mode, the shared LOM and Cisco Card interfaces are both enabled.
Dedicated—The dedicated management port is used to access the CIMC. You must select a NIC redundancy and IP setting.
Shared LOM—The 1-Gb Ethernet ports are used to access the CIMC. You must select a NIC redundancy and IP setting.
Cisco Card—The ports on an installed Cisco UCS virtual interface card (VIC) are used to access the CIMC. You must select a NIC redundancy and IP setting.
Why do you need native HA: The native HA feature allows two Cisco DCNM
appliances to run as active and standby applications, with their
embedded databases synchronized in real time. Therefore, when the active
DCNM is not functioning, the standby DCNM will...
