Configuring an IPv4 Address

Configuring an IPv4 Address

This section describes how to ensure network communication between the installation PC and deployment nodes.


See chapters Appendix Common System Information and Basic System Operations > Logging In to a Storage Node Using the KVM and Configuring an IP Address for the Mgmt Port of a Storage Node to configure a Mgmt port IP address for a storage node for logging in to the iBMC management page.


  1. Connect the installation PC to the deployment network for communication of the installation PC with the BMC network and the management network. Figure 5-5 shows the network diagram.

    Figure 5-5  Remote installation network

  2. Log in to the deployment node in remote mode.
    1. See chapters Appendix Common System Information and Basic System Operations > Remotely Logging In to the iBMC Management Page of a Storage Node Through the Mgmt Port to log in to the deployment node.
    2. Choose Remote and select Remote Virtual Console (Shared Mode) under Integrated Remote Console. On the displayed Shared Mode dialog box, click OK and start the virtual KVM as prompted.


      Before opening the KVM, ensure that JRE has been installed in the local environment. If error information No JAVA 6.0 or Java 7.0 was found or information indicating that file KVM.jnlp needs to be downloaded is displayed when you open the KVM, JRE is not installed. Go to to download and install JRE 1.6 or a later version. For details, see the online help provided on the iBMC UI.

    3. On the virtual KVM, enter user name root and its password (default: Root@storage) to log in to the operating system of the storage node.


      You can configure the following IP addresses on only one node. The italics in the commands are configured based on actual IP address planning and this applies to other sections.

      During the process, you can run the TMOUT=0 command to avoid automatic disconnections due to timeout.

  3. Configure an IP address.
    1. Run the ifconfig NIC1 Temporary IP address netmask Management Network IPv4 Mask command to configure a temporary IP address for port NIC1.

      • The temporary IP address must belong to the management network segment and cannot be listed in the configuration file.

      • Management Network IPv4 Mask: value of Management Network IPv4 Mask in the configuration file.

    2. Run the following commands to configure an IP address that is within the back-end network segment based on the networking.

      • For 10GE networking: Run the ifconfig SLOT4-0.ID Port Of Back-End IP Address 1 netmask Back-End Network Mask command.
      • For IB networking: Run the ifconfig SLOT4-0 Port Of Back-End IP Address 1 netmask Back-End Network Mask command.
      Parameter description:
      • ID in SLOT4-0.ID indicates the ID of the virtual network port where the back-end RoCE card resides. It is the same as the VLAN ID of its connected switch and the default value is 2. If the VLAN ID configured for the back-end storage network switch is not 2, change the ID here. For details, see section Configure the PFC function of DCB in chapter Configuring Switches > Configuring Switches on a 10GE Network > Networking for Switches Not Shared by the Front and Back Ends > Configuring Back-End Storage Network Switches.

      • The back-end IP address 1 is the IP address corresponding to SLOT4-0 under Node for Deployment in the configuration file.
      • The back-end network mask is the back-end network mask configured under Cluster in the configuration file.

    3. Run the route add default gw Management Network IPv4 Gateway command to add the default network gateway for the deployment node.

      The default network is the IPv4 gateway of the management network in the configuration file.

      A default gateway can ensure that the installation PC and storage node can still communicate with each other after the storage node is configured according to the configuration file and the network service is restarted. Therefore, do not skip this operation.

  4. Run the following commands on the deployment node and check whether the IP address is correct.
    1. Run route command to record the default gateway in the default column.
    2. Run ifconfig NIC1 command to record the IP addresses and masks of the ports.
    3. Run ifconfig SLOT4-0.ID or ifconfig SLOT4-0 command to record the IP addresses and masks of the ports.

      If the network configuration is incorrect, configure it again by referring to the preceding commands.
