Accessing the XClarity Controller web interface
The information in this topic explains how to access the XClarity Controller web interface.
The XClarity Controller supports static and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) IPv4 addressing. The default static IPv4 address assigned to the XClarity Controller is 192.168.70.125. The XClarity Controller is initially configured to attempt to obtain an address from a DHCP server, and if it cannot, it uses the static IPv4 address.
- Automatic IPv6 address configuration is enabled.
- IPv6 static IP address configuration is disabled.
- DHCPv6 is enabled.
- Stateless auto-configuration is enabled.
The XClarity Controller provides the choice of using a dedicated systems-management network connection (if applicable) or one that is shared with the server. The default connection for rack-mounted and tower servers is to use the dedicated systems-management network connector.
The dedicated systems-management network connection on most servers is provided using a separate 1Gbit network interface controller. However, on some systems the dedicated systems-management network connection may be provided using the Network Controller Sideband Interface (NCSI) to one of the network ports of a multi-port network interface controller. In this case, the dedicated systems-management network connection is limited to the 10/100 speed of the sideband interface. For information and any limitations on the implementation of the management port on your system, see your system documentation.
