Configuring the Mobility Master IP Address

The IP address of the Mobility Master or managed device is used to communicate with external devices such as APs.

IP addresses used by the Mobility Master or managed device are not limited to its own IP address.

You can set the IP address to the loopback interface address or to an existing VLAN Virtual Local Area Network. In computer networking, a single Layer 2 network may be partitioned to create multiple distinct broadcast domains, which are mutually isolated so that packets can only pass between them through one or more routers; such a domain is referred to as a Virtual Local Area Network, Virtual LAN, or VLAN. ID address. This allows you to force the IP address to be a specific VLAN Virtual Local Area Network. In computer networking, a single Layer 2 network may be partitioned to create multiple distinct broadcast domains, which are mutually isolated so that packets can only pass between them through one or more routers; such a domain is referred to as a Virtual Local Area Network, Virtual LAN, or VLAN. interface or loopback address across multiple machine reboots. Once you configure an interface to be the IP address of the Mobility Master or managed device, that interface address cannot be deleted until you remove it from the IP configuration.

If the IP address is not configured, the IP address of the Mobility Master or managed device defaults to the current loopback interface address. If the loopback interface address is not configured then the first configured VLAN Virtual Local Area Network. In computer networking, a single Layer 2 network may be partitioned to create multiple distinct broadcast domains, which are mutually isolated so that packets can only pass between them through one or more routers; such a domain is referred to as a Virtual Local Area Network, Virtual LAN, or VLAN. interface address is selected. Generally, VLAN Virtual Local Area Network. In computer networking, a single Layer 2 network may be partitioned to create multiple distinct broadcast domains, which are mutually isolated so that packets can only pass between them through one or more routers; such a domain is referred to as a Virtual Local Area Network, Virtual LAN, or VLAN. 1 is the factory default setting, and thus, becomes the IP address. You can configure the Mobility Master IP address using the WebUI or CLI Command-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions..

The following procedure configures the Mobility Master IP address:

  1. In the Mobility Master or Managed Network node hierarchy, select the device and navigate to the Configuration > System > General page.
  2. Expand the Controller IP address section.
  3. Select the address you want to set as the IP address of the Mobility Master or managed device from the IPv4 address or IPv6 address drop-down lists. This list only contains VLAN Virtual Local Area Network. In computer networking, a single Layer 2 network may be partitioned to create multiple distinct broadcast domains, which are mutually isolated so that packets can only pass between them through one or more routers; such a domain is referred to as a Virtual Local Area Network, Virtual LAN, or VLAN. IDs with statically assigned IP addresses. If you have previously configured a loopback interface IP address, then it will also appear in this list. Dynamically assigned IP addresses, such as DHCP Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. A network protocol that enables a server to automatically assign an IP address to an IP-enabled device from a defined range of numbers configured for a given network.  or PPPOE, do not appear.

    In a native IPv6 deployment scenario, the configuration of IPv4 address is not mandatory. Hence, you can select None from the IPv4 address drop-down list to remove the IPv4 address of the Mobility Master, when IPv6 address is configured on the Mobility Master.

  1. Click Submit.
  2. Click Pending Changes.
  3. In the Pending Changes window, select the check box and click Deploy changes.

    Any change in the IP address of the Mobility Master or managed device requires a reboot.

  1. In the Mobility Master node hierarchy, select the device and navigate to the Maintenance > Software Management > Reboot page to reboot Mobility Master and apply the IP address update.
  2. Click Yes to save the configuration.
  3. Click Reboot.
  4. Mobility Master boots up with the updated IP address of the selected VLAN Virtual Local Area Network. In computer networking, a single Layer 2 network may be partitioned to create multiple distinct broadcast domains, which are mutually isolated so that packets can only pass between them through one or more routers; such a domain is referred to as a Virtual Local Area Network, Virtual LAN, or VLAN. ID.

The following CLI Command-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions. command configures the Mobility Master IPv4 address:

(host) [mynode] (config) #controller-ip [loopback|vlan <vlan-id>]

The following CLI Command-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions. command removes the IPv4 address of the Mobility Master, when a valid IPv6 address is configured during migration of pure IPv4 or dual-stack deployment to native IPv6 deployment:

(host) [mynode] (config) #no controller-ip
