Objective

Procedure
EXOS handles the management interface as its own VLAN in VR-Mgmt. You can configure an IP address on this VLAN, and add a default route to VR-Mgmt.

configure vlan mgmt ipaddress 192.0.2.100/24
configure iproute add default 192.0.2.1 vr vr-mgmt

 

To enable DHCP on vlan the mgmt interface:
enable dhcp vlan mgmt
Additional notes
  • The management port is an out-of-band port that exists in its own VR, VR-Mgmt, and is isolated from other VLANs on the switch
  • Ports cannot be added or removed to the MGMT VLAN and its tag (4095) cannot be changed
  • Switch management is not restricted to the MGMT VLAN, the switch can be managed by any VLAN
