Configuring the Virtual Management Ethernet Interface for Global Management of a Virtual Chassis (CLI Procedure)
If you want to configure and manage a Virtual Chassis remotely through SSH or Telnet, configure the virtual management Ethernet (VME) interface on the master of the Virtual Chassis. You can configure and manage all members of the Virtual Chassis through this single global interface.
- Power on the switch that you want to function as the master.
- Check the front-panel LCD to confirm that the switch has powered on correctly.
- Run the EZ Setup program on the switch, specifying the identification parameters. See Connecting and Configuring an EX Series Switch (CLI Procedure) or Connecting and Configuring an EX Series Switch (J-Web Procedure) for details.
To configure the VME:
