    Configuring the Shared Management IP Address and Subnet

    Use this procedure to change the shared management IP address and subnet on the BTI7800. The shared management IP address and subnet are typically set up during commissioning.

    Management of the BTI7800 is performed on the Chassis Management Modules, which run in an active/standby redundancy scheme. Both CMMs have management Ethernet interfaces for connecting to the management IP network, but only the active CMM performs management functions. You connect to the system through a virtual, shared management IP address, which is owned by the active CMM. If the active CMM goes down, the standby CMM becomes active and takes over ownership of the shared management IP address.

    Additionally, each CMM has its own individual IP address that you can explicitly connect to if required. All three management IP addresses and the default gateway must reside on the same subnet.

    Note: Changing the shared management IP address might cause your current management session to terminate.

    1. Enter system configuration mode.

      For example:

      bti7800# config
      Entering configuration mode terminal 
      bti7800(config)# system 
      bti7800(config-system)# 
    2. Delete the individual management IP addresses if configured.

      If an individual management IP address has been configured, then you should delete it. This ensures that there is no conflict between the individual management IP addresses and the new subnet. For example:

      bti7800(config-system)# no controller-1 static-address
      bti7800(config-system)# no controller-2 static-address
    3. Delete the default gateway if configured.

      If a default gateway has been configured, then you should delete it. This ensures that there is no conflict between the default gateway and the new subnet. For example:

      bti7800(config-system)# no gateway-address
    4. Set the shared management IP address and subnet.

      The subnet is specified in CIDR format.

      For example:

      bti7800(config-system)# mgmt-address 10.1.220.104/10
    5. Commit your changes.
      bti7800(config-system)# commit
      Commit complete. 

      Note: If you change the IP address that you are using for the current management session, the current session will terminate, and you will need to reconnect using the new IP address. If you change the IP subnet as well, then you might need to reconfigure your management network before you can reconnect.

    6. Verify your settings by displaying the new settings.

      For example:

      bti7800# show system mgmt-interface | inc MgmtAddress
      MgmtAddress: 10.1.220.104/10
