How to config the management IP address in the same network segment with service IP

Publication Date:  2016-04-26 Views:  240 Downloads:  0
Issue Description

Device Model:5500 V3 Version:V300R003C00 Patch Version:SPC100

The management IP should be from the same segment with all the IP addresses, the customer can not set the management IP from another network segment.

An error occured when our client tried to set the management  IP from the same network segment.


Many customers do not have a separate network management and production network. 



  We can configure management network and production network in the same subnet. Please follow the step below:

1.       Login CLI command line;

2.       Execute command “change user_mode current_mode user_mode=developer” and enter developer mode;

3.       Execute command “change port eth_network_segment switch=on” to enable the switch.


In below we have an example from CLI for how to do that:


login as: admin


Authorized users only. All activities may be monitored and reported.

Using keyboard-interactive authentication.

DANGER: You are about to set management IP addresses and service IP addresses on the same network segment. This operation may cause services that actively connect to external servers unavailable. Such services include SNMP, syslog, email, FTP, AD, NIS, LDAP, and DNS.

Suggestion: Before performing this operation, ensure that service IP addresses and management IP addresses must be set on the same network segment.
