OverviewTo give the Exinda management port an IP address, follow the following steps:
- Power on Exinda device.
- Make sure all the wiring is intact and Exinda has access to internet.
- Access the CLI through the Console
- Log into it using the default credentials (U: admin P: exinda) and give it an IP address using the following commands:
no interface eth1 dhcp // (no dhcp to give ExindaÕs Management a Static Address)
int eth1 ip add <ip add> <mask>
ip default-gateway <ip address>
sh int eth1 // (check admin and link up YES and check IP addresses)
wr mem // (writes your changes to the disk)
The rest of the configuration can now be done through the Exinda appliance's Web UI.
Alternatively, it is possible to configure basic default options using the easy-to-use configuration jump-start command.
Note that on every Exinda device except for the 2061, there is a dedicated eth1 port for management purposes. While another port can be chosen, a bridge itself does not need to be given a management IP. On the 2061, the device is initially configured with 2 bridges. To access the device, it is necessary to either break one of the bridges to make a dedicated management port, or to put a management IP on one of the connected bridges for access.
