Configuring Management VLAN for standalone Nexus 5k

Hi All,

The architecture in the attachment doesnt require redundancy and hence has a single N5k with N2k as FEX. The setup is working fine except for the management vlan and mgmt 0 interface being down.

As of now, mgmt0 interface has no link connected to it. The VLAN for nexus management is also down as mgmt0 cant be assigned to vlans.. Configuring management IP to Loopback interface also doesnt allow adding the same to management vlan.

Is mgmt0 an RJ45 compatible port with N5596? and is there a way I can have out of band management for Nexus 5596? Is there a way I can assign a management IP to the FEX?

Thanks for the inputs.

Thanks,

Bala S

Configuring Management VLAN for standalone Nexus 5k

Hello Balachandhar,

Mgmt interface on N5K exists to provide out of band management to the device.

Mgmt interface belongs to management vrf. You can reach the N5K on mgmt interface once you configure IP to mgmt interface and connect it to upstream switch port belonging to mgmt vlan.

The FEX cannot be seperately managed. You need to connect to the parent N5K device and manage it.
