Onboard Administrator (OA) network question

Paul had a management question:




Good Morning,


    We have an Cisco MDS9124 in interconnect slots 3 and 4. When mgnt0 wants to send a packet to any device on the customers network is the packet store forwarded in the OA before it leaves the OA.




Monty replied:




Yes, the c-Class Onboard Administrator has a NIC connected to the enclosure management switch and a separate NIC connected to the faceplate OA Management Port - see the c7000 Enclosure Tech Brief on the HP website Figure 4.


The OA bridges traffic to/from outside the enclosure to iLO and interconnects inside the enclosure.




Any other comments for Paul??
