Appliance Setup

  1. Setup Management Connections
    • Connect iDRAC (IPMI) to a network device.
    • Connect eno1 and eno2 to a network device supporting LACP.
    • Make sure the DHCP server is setup properly.
    • After appliance boot up, iDRAC and devicebr (the management bridge interface) will get it's DHCP assigned IP addresses.
    • For DHCP based IP address setup, refer to section 2.5.1 - DHCP Based IP Address Setup in Arista CloudVision Appliance Quick Start Guide.
    • For Manual based IP address, refer to section 2.5.2 - Manual IP Address Setup in Arista CloudVision Appliance Quick Start Guide. After configuring IP addresses manually for management interfaces, reboot the appliance instead of just restarting the network-service, because the appliance setup scripts for DCA-200-vEOS takes effect only during the reboot.
  2. There are multiple ways to connect to the appliance:
    • SSH to devicebr DHCP address.
    • Web access to iDRAC https://<hostname or IP of iDRAC using Google Chrome or any other web browser.
    • Use the terminals connected to VGA and other peripherals if DHCP addresses of management interfaces are not known.
  3. Login to the appliance using username:root (password:arista). Change appliance username/password appropriately as needed, by referring to Chapter 3 - Accessing CloudVision Appliance in Arista CloudVision Appliance Quick Start Guide.
