Configuring the JCS Management Module Ethernet Interface

To configure the network interface on the JCS management module:

  1. Log in to the JCS management module.
  2. Use the env command to set JCS management module 1 (mm[1]) as the configuration target. For example:

    system:mm[1]> env —T mm[1]
  3. Use the ifconfig command to configure the interface. For example:

    system:mm[1]> ifconfig —eth0 —i 192.168.171.96 —g 192.168.171.254 —s 255.255.252.0 —c static

    In this example, Ethernet channel 0 is configured for a static IP address of 192.168.171.96 and a gateway address of 192.168.171.254. The subnet mask is 255.255.252.0.

Note: You only need to configure the Ethernet interface on the primary management module. The backup management module will use the IP address from the primary if it becomes the primary management module.
