Connecting NetBackup nodes to the network
This section provides information about connecting the network ports on both compute nodes to your network. Network ports on the rear panel of the compute node are shown in the following diagram.
Item 1 - IPMI (remote management) port
Item 2 - eth0/NIC1 port (for laptop connection)
The default IP address for this private network port is 192.168.229.233.
The default login credentials are:
User name: admin
Item 3 - eth1/NIC2 port
Each of these ports requires a Cat5 (minimum) Ethernet cable.

Veritas recommends using the IPMI port to establish remote access to the appliance.
The private network address for the eth0/NIC1 port is reserved to provide a direct connection from a laptop to perform the initial configuration. NIC1 (eth0) is typically not connected to your network environment.
After initial configuration you can change the NIC1 (eth0) IP address to repurpose the port.
To connect the nodes to the customer network
- Choose which ports and method you want to use to connect to your network.
- Plug an Ethernet cable into the IPMI port on each node.
- Plug the other end of each Ethernet cable into a network switch.
