Onboard Administrator, Enclosure Bay IP Addressing - not working with GbE2c switches

Hi all,

 

I've got a c3000 enclosure in our demo environment and it has a couple of old GbE2c Ethernet switches installed.  The enclosure and both switches have been set back to the factory defaults.

 

The enclosure has then had EBIPA enabled and addresses 10.10.1.20-27 assigned to the device bays - the servers in the enclosure are getting iLO addresses from there.

 

The enclosure has also had EBIPA addresses 10.10.1.100-103 assigned to the Interconnect bays.  The two switches are not getting IP addresses via EBIPA.  Both are set to default which means BOOTP is enabled but interface 1 is *disabled*.  However, I can't enable if1 without getting an error saying the configuration can't be saved because of missing configuration info.

 

Why would this be happening?  Should the default/factory configuration on the GbE2c switches automatically accept an EBIPA address if they don't have any static addresses configured?

 

Thanks
