Connect a Device to a Network for Out-of-Band Management
You can monitor and manage the device by using a dedicated management channel. Each device has a management port to which you can connect an Ethernet cable with an RJ-45 connector. Use the management port to connect the device to the management device.
Ensure that you have an Ethernet cable that has an RJ-45 connector at either end. Figure 1 shows the RJ-45 connector of the Ethernet cable supplied with the device.
To connect a device to a network for out-of-band management (see Figure 2):
- Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the management port on the device.
- Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to the management device.
