Re: management port config

the management Port, don't have any VLAN setting.

 

or do you want to change just the IP address ?

 

in such case, you neet simple to login via Telnet and executed the command "ipaddrset"

Re: management port config

Our VLANs are set on the IP network switch side, not on our FC switches.

Again,

 

on the management Port, you can simple Set the IP Address, GW, and DNS.

 

no other settings can be made. Additional you can simple set port Speed as fixed or AN.

 

any VLAN cannot be configure on management Port itself and is not supported.

Re: management port config

I completely agree that VLANs are not set on the mgmt port. Just saying that if the VLAN that the management traffic is over needs to change, it would likely be a change that an IP network administrator would have to do on an IP switch since it isn't set on the 6510 FC switch. I may not have been very clear with what I meant.
