GbE2c management

Hi,
this is my first blade installation, I have a HP ProCurve networking background but now I discovered that GbE2c switches are not Procurve!
I'm finding some difficulties especially to understand their management.

Facts:
- GbE2c internal port 19 is connected to OA and this is connected to same net of a management server
- switch has a VLAN4095 and an interface 256 on it
- management server has DHCP and it offers an IP to switch interface 256 by OA link

I'd like a different setup:
- switch should be managed by its uplink to core switches (like all my existing switches)
- on this uplink, there are many VLANs, one of these is our existing management VLAN
- is the internal OA-switch link really needed?
- mgmt server, OA and if256 must be on a different network?

I'm really confused.

Any suggestion?

ciao, the gbe2c is a layer2/3 switch router and it have many internal port to interconnect blade system on the external it have only 4 port that become configurable as trunk or a sigle vlan.
the configuration is very simple within the web interface.
the vlan 4095 is a default vlan that cannot be changed i think.
if you have any difficoult to configure it pls contact me at msn on gullio23@hotmail.com

Re: GbE2c management

Hi there,
There are 2 models of GbE2c, meaning 2 different part numbers(Different uplinks), both will have the same design regarding the management.

If you want to manage the switch from the uplinks you have 2 options:

1- Disable IF 256 (Only will loss the Management Link from the OA, no changes on switch functionality)

2- Create another L3 Interfaces, put it on vlanX and make sure is in different subnet than if256

cfg/l3/if

for your last question, yes, OA, iLOs and management consoles must be on the same subnet.

rgds,

Thanks to Giulio, for help on MSN, and to Lmm for excellent explanation.

I will open another thread for a few questions about STP...
