CloudVision Appliance IP Configuration

The CloudVision Appliance Host and iDRAC IP addresses can be allocated in either of two ways:

Option 1: Using an available DHCP server

DHCP Based IP Address Setup

iDRAC IP Address

Using the iDRAC MAC from Locate the MAC Addresses for the CloudVision Appliance, input an entry into the DHCP Server for the corresponding iDRAC IP address mapping to that MAC.

Host IP Address

Using the HOST NIC1 MAC from Locate the MAC Addresses for the CloudVision Appliance, input an entry into the DHCP Server for the corresponding HOST IP address mapping to that MAC.

Turn the system on by pressing the power button located on the front of the system.

Manual IP Address Setup

Note: Direct IP Address Setup requires a terminal connected to the VGA port of the appliance. This section can be skipped if the Host and iDRAC IP addresses have been configured with a DHCP server.

iDRAC IP Address

The iDRAC IP address can be manually configured via the host's bash shell using the racadm tool.

The racadm commands below are sequence dependent and must be entered in the following order.

  1. Using the attached terminal and keyboard, log in as user “root” and with default password “arista”.
  2. Disable all iDRAC related DHCP configuration.
    racadm set iDRAC.IPv4.DHCPEnable 0
    racadm set iDRAC.IPv4.DNSFromDHCP 0
    racadm set iDRAC.NIC.DNSDomainFromDHCP 0
  3. Configure the IP network settings for the iDRAC interface.
    racadm set iDRAC.NIC.Enable 1
    racadm set iDRAC.IPv4.Address <iDRAC-IP>
    racadm set iDRAC.IPv4.Netmask <iDRAC-MASK>
    racadm set iDRAC.IPv4.Gateway <iDRAC-GW>
  4. Configure the DNS settings for the iDRAC interface.
    racadm set iDRAC.IPv4.DNS1 <iDRAC-DNS1>
    racadm set iDRAC.IPv4.DNS2 <iDRAC-DNS2>
    racadm set iDRAC.NIC.DNSRacName <iDRAC-NAME>
    racadm set iDRAC.NIC.DNSDomainName <iDRAC-DOMAIN.NAME>
  5. Verify the configuration by running the following command.
    racadm getSysInfo

Host IP Address

The host IP address can be manually configured by using the host's bash shell. In order for the settings to be persistent, the following configuration must be completed.

  1. Configure the network settings by editing the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-devicebr file.
    DEVICE=devicebr
    NAME=devicebr
    TYPE=Bridge
    ONBOOT=yes
    BOOTPROTO=none
    IPADDR=<ip address here>
    NETMASK=<subnet mask here>
    GATEWAY=<gateway ip address here>
    DELAY=0
    USERCTL=yes
    NM_CONTROLLED=no
  2. Configure the DNS settings by editing the /etc/resolv.conf file.
    nameserver <dnsServerIP-1>
    nameserver <dnsServerIP-2>
    search <domain1> <domain2>
  3. Restart the networking service for the changes to take effect.
    service network restart
