BMC Port IP

Hey,

 

We have a FAS2020 in HA mode.  We had one of the controllers replaced a few weeks ago and it seems it lost the BMC port IP address we had assigned, so I can't putty it into.  If I putty into the other controller, can I find the IP address of the BMC port I don't know?

 

Thanks

 

Re: BMC Port IP

Have you done a "bmc status"?

Re: BMC Port IP

Yeah, but that only shows the controller you're connected to.

 

I need to show that info for the other controller, or better yet configure, the one I can't connect (BMC) into.

 

If I run an IP scanner, it only picks out one of the controllers BMC's ports (the one I can connect to), so the new controller isn't even on the same ip range/subnet.

Re: BMC Port IP

You said that you have got an HA pair. So what it with the other controller? Can't you connect to it?

Re: BMC Port IP

That's what I said in the first post...?

Re: BMC Port IP

Yes you replaced it but it should still have the same configuration as before the replacement. Only the BMC configuration should be lost. If not you have to configure it with a serial console.

Re: BMC Port IP

Yeah the 2 LAN ports have retained the correct IP config.  Only the BMC port has lost the IP config.

 

Can you re-configure the BMC port without using serial port?  This unit is not in the same location as me!

Re: BMC Port IP

So if they retained the correct configuration it should be possible to login to this controller and do the setup via bmc setup...

Re: BMC Port IP

How do I connect to the LAN ports via shell?  If I use putty it says 'Network error: Connection refused'

Hi @it_7

 

You can get the ip address from NetApp autosupport site. Go to raw autosupport tab and you can go through the bmc related commands. I have found my SP ip address over there. Please find the below screenshot for your reference.Capture.PNG
