Exclude Management IF

Hi together,


were running some Fabrics witch a separate Out-of-Band Network to the VDX Hardware. Currently we expected the first time a problem and we see that the cause of that seems to be normal by design. 

So i want to verify that.


Our Management has a IP Address and no gateway. If i look in the routes i see that network directly connected. Is there a way to exclude that IF from the routing process so that it is only reachable by the normal OSPF routing process and i can protect that network with a firewall ? Currently all networking traffic in the servers reaches with that directly connected route directly to all management IF of the VDX which i don't want.


Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Re: Exclude Management IF



We are facing the same issue, and yes Brocade told us that it's by design.

We asked for a modification ...
