Configuring the In-Band Management Interface

 

In in-band management, you configure a network interface as a management interface and connect it to the management device. By default. ports ge-1/0/0, ge-1/0/1, and ge-1/0/2 are configured as network interfaces. In addition, you can configure network interfaces from ge-1/0/3 to ge-1/0/9.

You can configure any of the ge-1/0/x ports, where x ranges from 0 to 9, as in-band management interfaces. In-band management can be configured using either a LAN port (FPC0) or a WAN port (FPC1).

To configure a WAN port for in-band management:

  1. Log in to the JCP CLI and enter configuration mode:
    root@host% cli
    root@host> configure


  2. Configure the IP address for the in-band management interface:
    root@host# set interfaces interface-name unit 0 family inet address address/prefix-length


    Note

    The ge-1/0/x port selected for configuration must be the same port that is mapped to the physical port (heth) being used for management connectivity.

  3. Configure VLAN tagging:
    root@host# set interfaces ge-1/0/x vlan-tagging
    root@host# set interfaces ge-1/0/x unit n vlan-id mgmt-vlan-id
    root@host# set interfaces ge-1/0/x unit n family inet address address/prefix-length

To configure a LAN port for in-band management:

  1. Configure the management VLAN:
    root@host# set vlans mgmt-vlan vlan-id vlan-id


  2. Add the physical network interface and the service interface as members of the VLAN:
    root@host# set interfaces ge-0/0/x unit 0 family ethernet-switching vlan members mgmt-vlan
    root@host# set interfaces sxe-0/0/[01] unit 0 family ethernet-switching vlan members mgmt-vlan
  3. Configure VLAN tagging:
    root@host# set interfaces ge-1/0/0 vlan-tagging
    root@host# set interfaces ge-1/0/0 unit n vlan-id mgmt-vlan-id
    root@host# set interfaces ge-1/0/0 unit n family inet address address/prefix-length
