If the IP address is lost:
If you forget the IP address of the chassis you need another way to get in touch with it. This is done by making a point-to-point connection from your PC to the “Ext” Ethernet port. The “Ext” port is located to the right side of the “Mgmt” port on both VulcanBay and VulcanCompact.
The “Ext” port is pre-configured with the following IP setup: Address: 172.16.255.210
You must configure your PC port statically to an IP address in the 172.16.255.x range, and then you will be able to ping the chassis again.
Now start VulcanManager, and connect to the chassis using the IP address 172.16.255.210.
Under the chassis Main Properties, you can see which IP address is configured for the “Mgmt” port, and you can reserve the chassis and change it if necessary. Changes to the IP address of the “Mgmt” port take effect after rebooting the chassis.
Note that the IP configuration of the “Ext” port cannot be changed, and that you should not configure the “Mgmt” port to use this subnet.
