Configuring the Switch Module Ethernet Interface

You must configure the Ethernet interface for both JCS switch modules (switch[1] and switch[2]) on the JCS management module.

Note: The IP address for the JCS switch modules must be on the same subnet as the IP address for the JCS management module.

To configure the JCS switch module Ethernet interface on the JCS management module:

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

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

    system:switch[1]> ifconfig —i 192.168.171.98 —g 192.168.171.254 —s 255.255.252.0 —em enabled —ep enabled

    In this example, the Ethernet interface for JCS switch module 1 is configured for an IP address of 192.168.171.98 and a gateway address of 192.168.171.254. The subnet mask is 255.255.252.0. The external ports (ep) of the switch module are enabled.

  4. Repeat this procedure for JCS switch module 2. Use the env command to set switch module 2 (switch[2]) as the configuration target. For example:

    system> env —T switch[2]
  5. Use the ifconfig command to configure the interface. For example:

    system:switch[2]> ifconfig —i 192.168.171.99 —g 192.168.171.254 —s 255.255.252.0 —em enabled —ep enabled

    In this example, the Ethernet interface for JCS switch module 2 is configured for an IP address of 192.168.171.99 and a gateway address of 192.168.171.254. The subnet mask is 255.255.252.0. The external ports (ep) of the switch module are enabled.
