Hardware management network cable replacement

This section describes how to replace a hardware management network cable.

Procedure performed by: Customer or field service

When replacing cables that connect any Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) from the compute enclosure, storage controllers, or the primary interconnect-dedicated port to the management switch, you are required to unplug all hardware management network cables and then plug back into the management switch to initiate a DHCP renewal. This operation can be done live without any specific pre- or post-steps.

During this operation, the hardware management network, the storage HA feature, and hardware detection functionality are unavailable. Hardware-related statistics also cannot be retrieved.
