I have connected all nodes of vspex blue to my cisco switch 2960 and one port from switch to the laptop(management pc) the switch has no configs. i understand that the default ip for the vspex blue is 192.168.10.200/24 ... and my pc is under 10.210 with gw of 10.254... yes im not able to reach the appliance. is it compulsary to use a TOR switch ?
TOR is just a label for the switch/switches connected to VxRail/VSPEX Blue. You can use any switch as soon as the network requirements are met:
- IPv6 Multicast enabled on Management VLAN
- IPv4 Multicast enabled on vSAN VLAN
- The ports connected to VxRail allow all VLANs: Management, vSAN, vMotion + VM VLANs.
Connect the "Management PC" to a an access port with Management VLAN. Assign additional IP from VxRailManager subnet: for example 192.168.10.199 and then you should be able to access VxRailManager VM.
If the management VLAN is tagged, you need to configure all Nodes. Follow the installation procedure.
