You can do it two ways. I believe you can log into the CIMC for the servers and look at the interface configuration from there or console into the apic controller and issue the command

 show inband-mgmt

HI jolinchewjb

Once you have logged into the controller, type:

ifconfig oobmgmt

I hope this helps

jolinchewjb,

    Just to clarify your question a bit, there is no "single mgmt ip address" for the entire ACI fabric. Please see the following table for a brief explanation of Device mgmt IPs and what they can be used for. To note, you are likely looking for the APIC Node mgmt IPs:

 

 Apic Node

  • Out-of-band/In-band mgmt ip. Used for:
    • Fabric Configuration/Management
      • HTTP/HTTPS (GUI/API)
      • SSH (NXOS Style CLI)
    • VMM Domain Integration
    • Managed L4-L7 Services
    • Other mgmt services (NTP, AAA, etc)

Note: Each APIC Node should have a oob/inb unique mgmt IP.

 

Switch Node

  • Out-of-band/In-band mgmt ip. Used for:
    • Hardware programming verification (show cmds)
    • Other mgmt services (NTP, AAA, etc)

Note: Each Switch Node should have a oob/inb unique mgmt IP.

 

Finding APIC mgmt IPs

Via APIC CLI (ssh to apic mgmt ip):

Method 1:

 

# ifconfig oobmgmt

 

This will give you the mgmt ip of the apic you are currently on.

Method 2:

# moquery -c mgmtRsOoBStNode | grep "addr\|#\|rn"

This will give you every configured mgmt ip (apic and switch nodes)

Method 3:

# bash
> acidiag avread | grep -oP "oob address(.*?)\s"

This will give you all APIC mgmt IPs. May need to be "admin".

Via GUI

Method 1:

System > Controllers > expand Controllers folder > select Node-x > General > Shows both oob/inb ips

 

Method 2: (if static assignment used)

Tenants > mgmt > Tenant mgmt > Node Management Addresses > Static Node Mangement Addresses

 

Method 3: (if dynamic assignment used

Tenants > mgmt > Tenant mgmt > Node Management Addresses > default (or other named policy)

 

Cheers,

Gabriel
