Configuring the management node
All Flex System Manager management nodes are pre-configured with the same static IP address. The default is 192.168.70.2xx. The last two digits (xx) in the static IP address are the bay number in which the compute node is installed in the chassis. For example, if the compute node is installed in bay 2, the value of xx in the static IP address is 02.
To establish connectivity, the management node attempts to use Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) to acquire its initial IP address for the Chassis Management Module Ethernet port. If DHCP is not installed or is enabled and fails, the management node uses the static IP address.
