TitleWhy can't I reach the management port through an intermediary router?
Objective
Accessing the out-of-band management port on a switch, when it is connected to another subnet ?
Environment
  • EXOS: All
Procedure
If the connection to the management port is not L2 (ie the packets to the Mgmt IP need to go through a router)  from the management application to the switch a default route must be configured.

This is done by adding a default route to the Mgmt port virtual router.
configure iproute add default <ip_address> vr vr-mgmt
(where the ip_address is the IP address for the default gateway )
