VM-100 will not configure management interface.

VM-100 will not configure management interface.

We have a VM-100 to run int our test environment ( VMware 5.5)



Despite reading the same information over and over I can't get the management interface to come up.


I have applied the config


#set deviceconfig system ip-address netmask




but "show interface management" has

ip address unknown

netmask unknown

default gateway unknown


the MAC address is that of configured VMware interface.


the running config shows the address.


So I am stuck!

Hi Robin,


When you do "show deviceconfig system" in configure mode what does it shows ?


Can you try once with 'commit force' and check if that makes any difference.


Also is the port status for the NIC interface up on the VMware side ?

Sounds like you haven't actually set the device as static, dumb I know but it's a step you have to take even if you set the system ip-address info. Try the following in configure on the CLI 'set deviceconfig system type static' and restart and see if that fixes your Mangement IP issue.

I thought it may be something liek that but could not find the command to take it off DHCP.


Sorted :)
