Standard Thunder configurations select a specific network interface to act as the Management port. Management ports provide a set of services including:
- SSH access for command line management (including public key authentication)
- SMTP for email alerts
- Web GUI access
- SNMP and other management protocols
- Software upgrades
This management interface cannot be used to route traffic.
The management interface must also reside on a unique IP subnet. If attempting to configure an interface with the same IP subnet, the following error message will be displayed:
“IP Address already configured on an Interface”
If network architectures require sharing an IP subnet with both Management and network traffic ports, then a standard interface can be configured to support Management functions.
Example ACOS commands to enable the Management port
enable-management service ssh
enable-management service http
enable-management service https
The above commands enable access to the A10 Thunder system with an SSH session and via a web browser.
