For management you can use the Out-of-Band-Management (OOBM) interface (RJ45) or create an in VLAN with an IP address assigned in the default VRF.
(config)# interface mgmt
(config-if-mgmt)# ip static 172.16.200.94/24
(config-if-mgmt)# default-gateway 172.16.200.254
# write mem
Example In-Band (vlan 10):
(config)#ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
(config)#ip route-static 0.0.0.0 0 192.168.1.254
//Add vlan 10 to your fiber uplink//
Enable SSH and HTTPS:
https-server vrf mgmt
https-server vrf default
ssh server vrf mgmt
ssh server vrf default

Subject: CX Management Interface - How to connect?
I'm embarrassed to ask this question but if I have a Stack of 6300M switches connected in a closet with fiber uplinks to the distribution switches across campus... What do I connect the management interface to being as its a copper port?
Do I need a separate management switch also uplinked with fiber to the core or can I use the ports from my 6300m stack with a dedicated management vlan?
Also is there a way to access the GUI of the switch without using the management interface?
And finally I want to enable split detection on my stack. I read in the best practices that I need to enable my management ports and either connect them to the network or run a direct cable between them. If I run a cable between them do I need to put IPs on them?
