How to enable “mgmt0” aka management interface of Cisco Sup2T

June 19, 2013

Last day,

during the two 6509e Supervisor migration, we had to upgrade the IOS, humbling around to enable and assign a static ip address to the management interface located in the front pannel of the sup2T .

This link to Cisco explain very well the functionality of this special port, in fact it’s very different as “we” intend a mgmt interface.

Table 1-3 Explain very well the combination sequence to enable it.

Table 1-3 Switching Access Between RP and CMP on a Console Connection

Action

Control Sequence
RP to CMP Press Ctrl-c and then Shiftm 3 times consecutively:
Ctrl-c Shift-m Ctrl-c Shift-m Ctrl-c Shift-m
CMP to RP Press Ctrl r and then Shift m 3 times consecutively:
Ctrl-r Shift-m Ctrl-r Shift-m Ctrl-r Shift-m 

Once enable, we are going to configure it for transfering the new IOS image.

1. configure terminal

2. interface cmpmgmt

3. ip default gateway ipv4-address

4. ip address ipv4-address/length

5. end

6. show running-config

Now it’s time to start the tftp or ftp server and start to transfer the new IOS
