Displaying the network interface

If an IP address has not been assigned to the network interface, you must connect to the Network OS CLI using a console session on the serial port. Otherwise, connect to the switch through Telnet or SSH. Enter the show interface management command to display the management interface.

The following example shows the management interface on a Brocade VDX Top-of-Rack (ToR) switch.

switch# show interface management
interface Management 9/0
 ip address 10.24.81.65/20
 ip gateway-address 10.24.80.1
 ipv6 ipv6-address [ ]
 ipv6 ipv6-gateways [ fe80::21b:edff:fe0f:bc00 fe80::21b:edff:fe0c:c200 ]
 line-speed actual "1000baseT, Duplex: Full"
 line-speed configured Auto

The following example shows the management interfaces on a Brocade VDX 8770-4. IPv6 autoconfiguration is enabled for the entire chassis, and, as a result, a stateless IPv6 address is assigned to both management interfaces.

switch# show interface management
interface Management 110/1
 ip address 10.20.238.108/21
 ip gateway-address 10.24.80.1
 ipv6 ipv6-address [ "stateless fd00:60:69bc:85:205:33ff:fe78:7d88/64 preferred" ]
 ipv6 ipv6-gateways [ fe80::21b:edff:fe0b:7800 fe80::21b:edff:fe0b:2400 ]
 line-speed actual "1000baseT, Duplex: Full"
 line-speed configured Auto
interface Management 110/2
 ip address 10.20.238.109/21
ip gateway-address 10.24.80.1
 ipv6 ipv6-address [ "stateless fd00:60:69bc:85:205:33ff:fe78:be14/64 preferred" ]
 ipv6 ipv6-gateways [ fe80::21b:edff:fe0b:7800 fe80::21b:edff:fe0b:2400 ]
 line-speed actual "1000baseT, Duplex: Full"
 line-speed configured Auto
