change system management_ip

change system management_ip


The change system management_ip command is used to configure an IP address for the management port on new hardware. Either an IPv4 or IPv6 address can be configured. The IP address can be used by terminals to access the storage system.


change system management_ip eth_port_id=? ip_type=? [ ipv4_address=? mask=? [ gateway_ipv4=? ] ] [ ipv6_address=? prefix_length=? [ gateway_ipv6=? ] ] [ delete_gateway=? ]





eth_port_id=? Indicates the port ID.

To obtain the value, run "show system management_ip". The value contains 1 to 31 characters, including letters, digits, and periods (.). The value cannot start with a digit or a period (.), or end with a period (.).

ip_type=? Indicates the IP address type.

The value can be an IPv4 or IPv6 address.

ipv4_address=? Indicates the IPv4 address.

The IPv4 address cannot start with 0 or an integer from 224 to 255.

mask=? Indicates the IPv4 subnet mask of the management port.


gateway_ipv4=? Indicates the configured IPv4 gateway.

The IPv4 gateway cannot start with 0 or an integer from 224 to 255.

ipv6_address=? Indicates eth configured IPv6 address of the management port.


prefix_length=? Indicates the configured IPv6 subnet mask.


gateway_ipv6=? Indicates the configured IPv6 gateway of the management port.

The value must be an IPv6 address.

delete_gateway=? Whether the original gateway needs to be deleted.

The value can be "yes" or "no",where:

  • "yes": the gateway of the port will be deleted.
  • "no": the gateway of the port will not be deleted.



Usage Guidelines

  • When the maintenance terminal and the storage system are not in the same network segment, the terminal cannot access the storage system. You have to add a router to the maintenance terminal and a gateway to the storage system so that the maintenance terminal can access the storage system.
  • Before performing the operation, ensure that the address you entered is valid. Note that an IPv4 address cannot start with 0.
  • Changing the IP address of the management port may disconnect a user that has logged in from the storage system. You need to log in to the storage system again after changing the IP address.
  • A maintenance terminal can access the storage system using the IPv4 address or IPv6 address of the management network port.


Set the IPv4 address of a specific management network port to and the subnet mask to, and deleting the original gateway. The command output varies with product models.

admin:/>change system management_ip eth_port_id=CTE0.A.H4 ip_type=ipv4_address ipv4_address= mask= delete_gateway=yes
