Ethernet management interfaces
The Ethernet network interface provides management access, including direct access to the Network OS CLI. You must configure at least one IP address using a serial connection to the CLI before you can manage the system with other management interfaces. You can either configure static IP addresses, or you can use a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) client to acquire IP addresses automatically. For IPv6 addresses, both static IPv6 and stateless IPv6 autoconfiguration are supported.
