7210 controller - separate management plane

Hi,

I have a 7210 controller I want to manage out of band. I have given an interface its own VLAN, and told that VLAN to be management.

Only issue now is the routing table ... where can I separate the management traffic out? Ideally the management VLAN just gets a default gateway and all other VLANs I will route separately?

Thanks

The 7210 does have a dedicated management interface.  Please see the installation guide here:  https://support.arubanetworks.com/Documentation/tabid/77/DMXModule/512/Command/Core_Download/Default.aspx?EntryId=35393

 

The interface allows you to enter an ip address and subnet mask.  It is expected that you would have to use a "jump" box on the same subnet to reach the management interface because it cannot route past the management subnet. https://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/ArubaOS_85_Web_Help/Content/arubaos-solutions/1cli-commands/interface-mgmt.htm

Re: 7210 controller - separate management plane

Thanks - but just to be clear, you need to have your management server in the same VLAN? So it never breaks out of the subnet etc?

I have a bunch of devices in separate out of band subnets - ideally I could tell this management VLAN to use a default gateway on its own routing plane?

Maybe it is best practice to manage these particular devices in band?

Re: 7210 controller - separate management plane

You can manage (SSH and web) the controller on any ip address on the controller.  

 

The situation above is ONLY applies to the physical management interface on the 7210.  

 

From my observation,  the majority of installations just manage the controller on an ip address on one of its vlan interfaces.  The use of the out-of-band management interface is in the minority.
