3.9.10 Setting an SSCP IP Address


3.9.10 Setting an SSCP IP Address
To confirm the IP address that is assigned to the protocol for communication (SSCP) between service processors, use the showsscp command. The setsscp command is used to set the SSCP IP address. Execute the setsscp command with a user account that has the platadm or fieldeng privilege.
  1. Execute the shownetwork command to display information on all XSCF network interfaces.
XSCF> shownetwork -a
  1. Execute the showsscp command to display SSCP address information.
    The following example displays information on all SSCP addresses on the SPARC M10-4S system in the 4BB configuration, with chassis directly interconnected.
XSCF> showsscp -a
SSCP network ID:0 address 169.254.1.0
SSCP network ID:0 netmask 255.255.255.248
Location Address
------------- ---------------

bb#00-if#0 169.254.1.1
bb#01-if#0 169.254.1.2
bb#02-if#0 169.254.1.3
bb#03-if#0 169.254.1.4
SSCP network ID:1 address 169.254.1.8
SSCP network ID:1 netmask 255.255.255.248

bb#00-if#1 169.254.1.9
bb#01-if#1 169.254.1.10
bb#02-if#1 169.254.1.11
bb#03-if#1 169.254.1.12
SSCP network ID:2 address 169.254.1.16
SSCP network ID:2 netmask 255.255.255.252
Location Address
------------- ---------------

bb#00-if#2 169.254.1.17
bb#01-if#2 169.254.1.18
  1. The following example displays the set information for the master XSCF with SSCP network ID 0 in BB#00.
XSCF> showsscp -b 0 -N 0
SSCP network ID:0 address 169.254.1.0
SSCP network ID:0 netmask 255.255.255.248

Location Address
------------- ---------------

bb#00-if#0 169.254.1.1
  1. The following example displays the set information on the SSCP standby XSCF side.
XSCF> showsscp -b 1 -N 1
SSCP network ID:1 address 169.254.1.8
SSCP network ID:1 netmask 255.255.255.248

Location Address
------------- ---------------

bb#01-if#1 169.254.1.10
  1. The following example displays the set information for the SSCP link for master and standby duplication.
XSCF> showsscp -N 2
SSCP network ID:2 address 169.254.1.16
SSCP network ID:2 netmask 255.255.255.252

Location Address
------------- ---------------

bb#00-if#2 169.254.1.17
bb#01-if#2 169.254.1.18
  1. Set the SSCP IP addresses (when the setting is required).
    The IP address used in the SSCP network is set as the default. However, when the IP address of XSCF-LAN and the network address of the SSCP default IP address are the same, change the IP address of SSCP using the setsscp command. The following example sets, in interactive mode, the SSCP addresses and net masks of the SSCP link network for the SPARC M12-2S or SPARC M10-4S system in the 4BB configuration, with chassis directly interconnected.
XSCF> setsscp
How many BB[4] > 4
SSCP network ID:0 address [169.254.1.0 ] > 10.1.1.0
SSCP network ID:0 netmask [255.255.255.248] > 255.255.255.0
bb#00-if#0 address [10.1.1.1 ] >
bb#01-if#0 address [10.1.1.2 ] >
bb#02-if#0 address [10.1.1.3 ] >
bb#03-if#0 address [10.1.1.4 ] >

SSCP network ID:1 address [169.254.1.8 ] > 10.2.1.0
SSCP network ID:1 netmask [255.255.255.248] > 255.255.255.0
bb#00-if#1 address [10.2.1.1 ] >
bb#01-if#1 address [10.2.1.2 ] >
bb#02-if#1 address [10.2.1.3 ] >
bb#03-if#1 address [10.2.1.4 ] >

SSCP network ID:2 address [169.254.1.16 ] >
SSCP network ID:2 netmask [255.255.255.252] >
bb#00-if#2 address [169.254.1.17 ] >
bb#01-if#2 address [169.254.1.18 ] >
  1. Execute the applynetwork and rebootxscf commands to reflect the settings made for the IP addresses and net masks.
Note - You can also reflect the XSCF host name, XSCF domain name, XSCF routing, DNS for the XSCF, and other settings made, by executing the applynetwork and rebootxscf commands.
XSCF> applynetwork
The following network settings will be applied:
  bb#00 hostname   :hostname-0
  bb#01 hostname   :hostname-1
  DNS domain name  :example.com
  nameserver       :10.23.4.3

  interface        :bb#00-lan#0
  status           :up
  IP address       :10.24.144.214
  netmask          :255.255.255.0
  route            : -n 0.0.0.0 -m 0.0.0.0 -g 10.24.144.1   
(Omitted)
XSCF> rebootxscf -a
The XSCF will be reset. Continue? [y|n] :y
  1. The XSCF reboot disconnects the XSCF session, so log in again.
  1. Execute the showsscp command, and confirm the SSCP address information.
