6.1. Management Interface

The management interface is used to connect to the system over the network for its further configuration and monitoring. This interface is also used for NTP, SNMP operation and to send operational logs to external servers.

To configure the management interface, enter its configuration mode:

interface management

In the configuration mode, the following commands are available:

ip address A.B.C.D/M

Configure the IPv4 address of the management interface. The management interface can have only one address. When you re-enter this command, the interface address will be replaced with a new one.

ip default-gateway A.B.C.D

Configure the default gateway for the management interface. The management interface can access other networks only through the default gateway. You cannot configure dynamic routing protocols for the management interface.
