Management Network: CMC and the iDRAC (on each server) and the network management ports for the switch I/O module are connected to a common internal network in the PowerEdge FX2/FX2s chassis. This allows the management network to be isolated from the server data network.
You can also power on the chassis using the command line interface, use racadm chassisaction powerup command to accomplish it.
The default CMC network configuration is Static with the CMC IP address 192.168.0.120. If you want to change the network configuration to DHCP, connect a serial cable to serial port on the CMC. For more information on serial connection, refer to Serial interface/protocol setup in using remote access software from a management station section.
After the serial connection is established, login and use the command racadm setniccfg —d to change the network configuration to DHCP. CMC takes 30 to 60 seconds approximately to obtain the IP address from the DHCP server.
In the output displayed, search for Current IP Address.
In the System Setup page, click iDRAC Settings > System Summary .
The CMC IP address is displayed in the Chassis Management Controller section.
