Management Modes

Management Modes

Access Modes

The X6800 server nodes and Hyper Management Module (HMM) are configured with independent IP addresses. You can access the Intelligent Baseboard Management Controller (iBMC) of a server node or the HMM to manage the X6800.

  • On a server node, you can:
    • Directly access the iBMC WebUI or CLI through the iBMC management network port on the server node.
    • Access the iBMC WebUI or CLI through a service network port on a network interface card (NIC) over a network controller sideband interface (NC-SI).
    • Access the HMM CLI in transparent transmission mode through the iBMC management network port.
  • Through the converged management network port on the chassis mounting ear or on the HMM, you can:
    • Directly access the HMM CLI through the converged management network port.
    • Access the iBMC WebUI or CLI through the converged management network port.

Networking

The X6800 provides flexible networking options corresponding to the access modes:

  • Point-to-point networking

    The server nodes are directly connected to the switch outside the X6800 chassis to form an out-of-band management network plane. You must set LAN Port Configuration to Dedicated on the BIOS. You also can connect Data plane network and transfer management message through NC-SI. Figure 2-28 shows the cable connections.

  • Cabling from the mounting ear for converged management

    The X6800 is connected to the switch outside the X6800 chassis through a cable led out from the front mounting ear on the X6800 chassis. The out-of-band management network communicates with the X6800 server nodes through the LAN switch (LSW) chip in the X6800 chassis. You need to change LAN Port Configuration (Dedicated by default) to Shared on the BIOS. Figure 2-29 shows the cable connections.

  • Cabling from the HMM for converged management

    The X6800 is connected to the switch outside the X6800 chassis through a cable led out from the converged management port on the HMM in the X6800 chassis. The out-of-band management network communicates with the X6800 server nodes through the LSW chip in the X6800 chassis. You need to change LAN Port Configuration (Dedicated by default) to Shared on the BIOS. Figure 2-30 shows the cable connections.

NOTE:

If both the front and rear aggregated management network ports are connected to the management network, the front aggregated management network port will be used because it has higher priority, and the rear aggregated management network port will be disabled by the software.
