I have a couple of hopefully simple questions about the Management port on the 7800. First, can it be on the same subnet as the ge0 port? For instance, if I have the managment ip as 10.10.10.x can I also have the ge0 port (for replication) also be 10.10.10.x(a different number)? Will this cause any conflict? Also, is there a way to manage the management port from the CLI, I can't seem to find a good way to do it. I found ways to look at the ip but nothing to really make any changes. Thanks,
if I understand you question correct, you want to configure the Management Port in same Subnet as GE0.
If yes, the answer is:
I made the same config last by a customer , and put the management Port from remote 7800 in same Subnet as FCIP however with different IP and work fine without any issue since around One and half Year.
