This article provides instructions to configure an IP address on a new Exinda device.
- Power on the Exinda device.
- Make sure all the wiring is intact, and Exinda has access to the Internet.
- Access the CLI (command-line interface) through the console.
- Log in to the device using the default credentials (username: admin Password: exinda) and give it an IP address using the following commands:
no interface eth1 dhcp // (no dhcp to give ExindaÕs Management a Static Address)
int eth1 ip add <ip address> <subnet mask>
ip default-gateway <ip address>
sh int eth1 // (To check admin and link up as 'YES' and check IP addresses)
wr mem // (to save or 'write' your changes to the disk)
The rest of the configuration can now be done through Exinda's web UI (user interface).
Alternatively, it is possible to configure basic default options using the easy-to-use configuration
Note that on every Exinda device, except the 2061 model, there is a dedicated eth1 port for management purposes. While another port can be chosen, a bridge itself does not need to be given a management IP. On the 2061 model, the device is initially configured with two bridges. To access the device, it is necessary to either break one of the bridges to make a dedicated management port, or to set a management IP on one of the connected bridges for access.
