Prerequisites for IPMI configuration

Note:

Veritas Flex Appliance release 1.x does not support configuring the IPMI port through the Flex Appliance Shell. To configure IPMI contact Technical Support and ask your representative to reference article 100042482.

Verify the following configuration prerequisites:

  • The remote management port auto-negotiates its link speed to 1 Gbps.

    Note:

    If the IPMI port is connected to a managed switch port, it is recommended that you configure the switch port to auto-negotiation

  • If a firewall exists between the appliance and the remote devices that manage an appliance (like a laptop computer), open the following ports:

    66

    SOL SSH

    80

    HTTP

    162

    SNMP

    443

    HTTPS

    623

    Floppy/USB media

    627

    Secured Floppy/USB media

    5120

    CD

    5124

    Secured CD

    5900

    KVM

    5902

    Secured KVM

    Note:

    If you have a private internal network, remember to configure the settings accordingly in your network address translation (NAT).

  • The remote management port must be configured as a DHCP or static address.
