How is the Out-of-Band management port (OOBM) configured and used?


In the following example, the Out-of-Band management port is configured to acquire an IP address via DHCP. IP connectivity and a file copy from a TFTP server is tested.

Rack2sw1(config)# oobm ip address dhcp
Rack2sw1(config)# oobm enable
