Is it possible to have one node which uses the local interface for mgmt talk to another node using in-band management both both nodes being int he same subnet?
I have answered my own question and resolved the issue. The Cisco interface needed to be set to trunking. When using the local interface the Cisco port had to be set as an switchport mode access or switchport mode dot1q. However, when setting the mgmt-port-interface to remote the Cisco port had to be set to switchport mode trunk. This allowed for OOBM to the 5160 and IBM to the 5142 through the 5160 with the Cisco acting as the gateway.
Thank you everyone for your help.
Hi Austin Carr
We meet again
I suggest reading the Ciena Technical Publication
It discusses using the local management port for in-band management bridging and the things to consider.
This is supported for 3930 & 5142 and a few others.
Hope this helps.
And thank you again. I will continue to pepper with questions .
Pulling up the 39xx_51xx_SAOS_6.15_Advanced OAM Config pub now. Will write back here if I have any further questions.
Again, much appreciated!
I assume you are referring to the 39xx or 51xx packet networking devices which run SAOS 6.x.
In which case I do not see an issue with connecting a local interface (OOBM) connection on one node to a remote interface (IBM) connection on another node. The only thing to be fully aware of is that the local interface does have any L2 control protocols running on it, so it will not be sending out (nor process) typical L2 BPDUs (i.e. LLDP, RSTP, etc.) that a physical or aggregate port assigned to the remote management VLAN will do by default.
Thanks Jeff. You are correct in you assumption. However, I am still having an issue. Here is the overall setup. I have a Cisco 3550 acting as the gateway for the MGMT VLAN 110 to a 5160 for OOBM (local MGMT port). From the 5160 I have a 5142 for which I am trying to use remote MGMT on the same MGMT VLAN 110. All my configs are below. I see the documentation says this should work, but so far I am unable to make it happen. I feel like its just something dumb on my end. Soft Ver. 6.15.0
interface set mgmt-port-interface remoteinterface remote set vlan 1164interface remote set ip 172.16.164.24/24 interface set gateway 172.16.164.1
LAB_5142interface remote set vlan 1164interface remote set ip 172.16.164.24/24 interface set gateway 172.16.164.1
interface FastEthernet0/6 description **to LAB_5160** switchport access vlan 100 switchport mode dot1q-tunnel no cdp enableend
interface vlan 110
ip address 172.16.164.1 255.255.255.0
Glad to hear that you got it working, as I had noticed you had the same IP address on the 5160 and the 5142, but I was assuming that was just a typo.
Please feel more than welcome to ask more questions about anything in regards to Ciena's Packet Networking products, and we'll be available to answer and/or assist.
I was just a typo. Thank you for being available to support.
