Setting FC Switch IP address via Onboard Administrator

You can manually set the IP address of an FC switch or any other interconnect in a HPE blade chassis.

Just launch Putty connect to the active onboard administrator then enter:

connect interconnect interconnect position

connect interconnect 2

This is like connecting to the switch with a serial cable and will allow you to logon.

Then once logged on just set the IP address like normal:

View current IP address settings:

ipaddrshow
SWITCH
Ethernet IP Address: none
Ethernet Subnetmask: none
Gateway IP Address: none
DHCP: O

Set IP address:

ipaddrset
