Configuring the SP network

Before you can access the SP, the SP network must be configured and enabled. You can configure the SP to use IPv4, IPv6, or both. The SP IPv4 configuration supports static and DHCP addressing, and the SP IPv6 configuration supports static addressing only.

Before you begin

To configure IPv6 connections for the SP, IPv6 must already be configured and enabled for Data ONTAP. The ip.v6.enable option controls the IPv6 settings for Data ONTAP. For more information about IPv6 configuration, see the Data ONTAP Network Management Guide for 7-Mode.

Steps

  1. Configure and enable the SP by using the system node service-processor network modify command.

    • The -address-type parameter specifies whether the IPv4 or IPv6 configuration of the SP is to be modified.
    • The -enable parameter enables the network interface of the specified IP address type.
    • The -dhcp parameter specifies whether to use the network configuration from the DHCP server or the network address that you provide.

      You can enable DHCP (by setting -dhcp to v4) only if you are using IPv4. You cannot enable DHCP for IPv6 configurations.

    • The -ip-address parameter specifies the public IP address for the SP.
    • The -netmask parameter specifies the netmask for the SP (if using IPv4.)
    • The -prefix-length parameter specifies the network prefix-length of the subnet mask for the SP (if using IPv6.)
    • The -gateway specifies the gateway IP address for the SP.

  2. Display the SP network configuration to verify the settings by using the system node service-processor network show command.

Example of configuring the SP network

The following example configures the SP to use IPv4, enables the SP, and displays the SP network configuration to verify the settings.

system> system node service-processor network modify -node local 
-address-type IPv4 -enable true -ip-address 192.168.123.98 
-netmask 255.255.255.0 -gateway 192.168.123.1
