Connecting an EX-series Switch to a Network for Out-of-Band Management
EX-series switches have an out-of-band management port with an RJ-45 connector on the rear panel. If you need to monitor and manage an EX-series switch using a dedicated management channel, you can use the out-of-band management port to connect the EX-series switch to the management device.
Ensure you have an Ethernet cable with an RJ-45 connector available. One such cable is provided with the switch. Figure 3 shows the RJ-45 connector of the Ethernet cable supplied with the switch.
- Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the management port (labelled MGMT) on the rear panel of the EX-series switch.
- Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to the network device.
