Function Description

The Network page allows you to perform the following operations:

  • Set a host name for the server.
  • Set the mode and IP address of the management network port for the server.

    Changing the IP address of the management network port will cause network disconnection. Change the IP address only when necessary.

  • Set the mode for obtaining domain name system (DNS) information.
    NOTE:

    DNS supports both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

  • Set VLANs.
  • Set NTP information.
  • Set the time zone.
NOTE:

Only the G560 V5 supports setting of the management network port and VLANs.

GUI

Choose Configuration from the main menu, and select Network from the navigation tree.

The Network page is displayed.



Parameter Description

Parameter

Description

Server Name

iBMC host name.

Value: a string of 1 to 64 characters

The value can contain letters, digits, and hyphens (-), but cannot start or end with a hyphen.

Default value: huawei

Mode

Type of the server management network port, that is, the iBMC network port.

Value:

  • Fixed: If you select this option, you must also specify a dedicated network port or a port on an LOM as the iBMC network port.
    • Dedicated Port: dedicated iBMC port (that is, the Mgmt port of the server).
    • LOM network port: a service network port on an LOM
  • Automatic: If you select this option, the iBMC automatically selects the iBMC network port based on the port status. If multiple network ports are available, the iBMC selects a network port based on the following priority: dedicated network port > LOM network port.

Default value: Fixed

NOTE:

Only the G560 V5 supports setting of the iBMC network port.

iBMC Management Network Port

If Mode is set to Fixed, specify a management network port.

Manually set IP address

Click this option to manually set an IPv4 address for the iBMC network port. The IPv4 address information includes IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, and MAC Address.

NOTE:

MAC Address specifies the physical address of a network interface card (NIC).

IPv6

Automatically obtain IP address

Click this option to allow an IPv6 address to be automatically allocated for the iBMC network port.

Manually set IP address

Click this option to manually set an IPv6 address for the iBMC network port. The IPv6 address information includes IP Address, IPv6 Prefix, Gateway, Local Link and IP Address2.

NOTE:
  • Local Link is used for local link communication.

  • IP Address2 supports a maximum of fifteen IPv6 addresses when stateless address autoconfiguration (SLAAC) is used.

DNS

Automatically obtain DNS IPv4 address

Click this option to allow an IPv4 address to be allocated for the DNS server.

Automatically obtain DNS IPv6 address

Click this option to allow an IPv6 address to be allocated for the DNS server.

Manually set DNS address

Click this option to manually set the DNS information. The DNS address information includes Domain, Preferred Server, and Alternate Server.

If the IP address of the iBMC network port is set manually, the DNS information must also be set manually.

Domain

Domain name for the server.

Value: a string of 0 to 67 characters

The value can contain letters, digits, and special characters including spaces.

Preferred Server

IP address of the preferred DNS server.

Alternate Server

IP address of the alternate DNS server.

NTP

NTP

NTP allows the server to synchronize time with the NTP server. If the NTP server is stopped, the server synchronizes time with the MM.

Click or , and click Save.

Value:

  • : enables NTP.
  • : disables NTP.

Automatically obtain NTP information using DHCPv4

Click this option to allow IPv4 address to be automatically allocated for the NTP server.

NOTE:
If this option is selected, time zone information need not be manually configured.

Automatically obtain NTP information using DHCPv6

Click this option to allow IPv6 address to be automatically allocated for the NTP server.

Manually set NTP information

Click this option to manually set the preferred and alternate NTP servers.

Preferred NTP server

IP address of the preferred NTP server.

Value:
  • IPv4 address
  • IPv6 address
  • Domain name
NOTE:
  • The iBMC version earlier than 3.12 supports only the Linux NTP servers.
  • iBMC V312 and later versions support Linux and Windows NTP servers.

Alternate NTP server

IP address of the alternate NTP server.

Value:
  • IPv4 address
  • IPv6 address
  • Domain name
NOTE:
  • The iBMC version earlier than 3.12 supports only the Linux NTP servers.
  • iBMC V312 and later versions support Linux and Windows NTP servers.

Server Authentication

Authentication, which can be enabled or disabled, for communication between the server and the NTP server.

Default value: Disabled

NTP Time Synchronization Interval

Interval at which the system synchronizes time from the NTP server.

The system automatically adjusts the time synchronization interval based on the network status. If the network status is in good condition, the time synchronization interval is adjusted toward the maximum value.

Upload NTP Secure Group Key

Private key to be uploaded to the iBMC for identity authentication if Server Authentication is enabled.

NOTE:
You can download a key generator (for example, ntp-keygen) to generate private keys.

VLAN

NOTE:

Only the G560 V5 supports setting of VLANs.

VLAN

Setting of VLAN.

Click or , and click Save.

Value:

  • indicates the VLAN is enabled.
  • indicates the VLAN is disabled.
NOTE:
  • VLAN setting is not supported when a dedicated network port is used under the Fixed mode.
  • You are advised to enable VLAN and set VLAN IDs to implement isolation between the service network and management network.
  • If Dedicated Port is selected as the iBMC management network port, the VLAN configuration is invalid. If any other value except Dedicated Port is selected as the iBMC management network port, the VLAN configuration is valid.

Default value:

VLAN ID
