Re: hp blade enclosure c7000 g2 missing virtual connect manager

Hi,

 

There are four ways to access HP Virtual Connect Manager:

  1. If the management network uses dynamic DNS, locate the Default Network Settings label on the Primary VC module, and then type the DNS name into the address field of the web browser.
  2. Log on to the enclosure Onboard Administrator. From the rack overview screen, select the Virtual Connect Manager link from the left navigation window. The Onboard Administrator firmware must be version 3.11 or higher.
  3. Log on to the enclosure Onboard Administrator. Select Interconnect Bays in the left navigation window of the Onboard Administrator user interface. Select the Management URL link for the Primary Ethernet module.
  4. Access the Virtual Connect Manager CLI remotely through an SSH session.

It's been awhile since I've setup a new enclosure. That being said, I don't think the link to connect to VC appears in the OA until you have configured VC and tied it to the enclosure during domain setup.

You need to go under the Enclosure Bay IP Addressing, click the Interconnects tab and set the IP address there.  After you do that you will be able to log into the VC and set it up.
