Connect Your Device to a Network for Out-of-Band Management

Ensure that you have an Ethernet cable that has an RJ-45 connector at each end.

You can monitor and manage your device by using a dedicated management channel. Use the management port to connect your device to the management device. The management port accepts an Ethernet cable that has an RJ-45 connector.

To connect a device to a network for out-of-band management:

  1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  2. Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the management port on the device.
  3. Connect the other end of the cable to the management device (see Figure 1).
