I received two sorts of ethernet switches, one L2 ICX6430-24P and L3 ICX 6610-24F.
There are good products and work like a charme but I'm not able to have dedicated management interface reliable.
In fact I setup IP addresses on theses switches correctly, all is working, I dedicated a special interface with a management VLAN (It works), however If i forget to put a cable in the management interface at boot It remains disabled. I need to reenable It in console or SSH.
It happens on the both equipments (6610 or 6430) and appears to not be normal.
Any suggestions ?

The connection between the 2 devices should be a DOT1Q (Tagged) connection. The management VLAN should virtual.
L3 device-- Has VLAN 10 (users) VLAN 20 (servers) VLAN 30 (management). Create corresponding VLANS and Interfaces (virtual). Interconnect devices at port 24. Tagged VLANs to port 24.
L2 device -- Create corresponding VLANs. Interconnect devices at port 24. Make VLAN 30 the management-vlan. Tagged VLANs to port 24.
I hope this helps.

Why is the port down (show int bri) - admin down or just down, blocked via STP? What VLAN did you mark as management? Can you post the two configs?

I talked about outband interface, the dedicated one which cannot be part of a VLAN etc..
mgmt1 Up None Full 1G None No None 0
That interface doesn't work if I don't explicitly enable after a boot. The weird thing that if I put a copper in It before the cold start, It will be up.
I dedicated a VLAN to the management and tagged my ethernet 1/1/24 interface, it works like a charm all the time.
The problem is the MGMT1 dedicated interface.
Thanks for your time.

Ok, I think I understand what you are saying now .
You want to use the management port/s on the two switches and you have configured a management VLAN on 1/1/24 on both switches?
The use of the management VLAN command is only required if you are not using the dedicated management ports. It is there as some switches do not have a management port.
Please remove the config for management on ports 1/1/24 then the normal management ports should work as expected.
