IPMI vlan and host vlan on one nic

Jump to solution

Hi,

can i have the same vlan on host nic1 and ipmi lan ?

The situation looks as follows:

1) server with two nic (NIC1 and NIC2, but we only use NIC1)

2) in linux on server NIC1 (name eth0) i create tagged vlan:

ip link add link eth0 name eth0.101 type vlan id 101

ip add add 169.254.203.254/24 dev eth0.101

3) configure ipmi

# ipmitool lan print

4) connect NIC1 to switch with tagged vlan 101

With this configuration i can't connect to ipmi from Linux when i run ping 169.254.203.1 i don't receive response

ARP table on the switch show only mac od the NIC1 in linux host.

 

I am doing something wrong or such a solution does not work?

Hello,

To answer your question, you cannot have the same vlan on host nic1 and ipmi lan. It is not supported.
