I just configured Esxi IP address in BE6K ...i just configured ip address statically connected to the managment port assigned my machine in the same subnet...but still not able to access....not reachable...any suggestion
Yes i restarted managment port...all the possiblity i done...it's a new implementation i just want to test the managment port....but still facing the issue.
i just assigned Esxi ip 172.21.60.3 /24 DG:172.21.60.1
My machine IP 172.21.60.35
My machine is directly connected to UCS server MGMT port.
Have u connected to correct NIC [i.e. NIC-1] since you are saying that u are not able to reach even when connected drectly through PC?
No i tried connecting NIC-1 and NIC-2 port just for testing....But now i am trying with MGMT port directly connected to my LAPTOP with static IP address in Same Subnet...
I suppose u are refrerring to MGMT port [written as M on rear of chassis] which would be used only for CIMC.To do the same , u need to press F8 when u power ON chassis while in BIOS.
Thanks for sharing the doc..
already i am fallowing the same doc for my previous implementation...i can able to acess Esxi once i conntect cable from switch to NIC...but my concern was i need to access through managment port ...is it possible?
I was going through the DOC and Management port can be used for Dedicated CIMC
Please have a look into this discussion which talks about ESXi and CIMC access through Shared LOM
Can you access your ESXi server via your vShpere client? If yes, did you assign a VLAN to the management vMKernel port? If yes, you will need to assign the same VLAN tag to the "Port Group" that is assigned to your VM.
