Whether the IP address of the IPMI interface can be customized during the deployment of OceanStor 9000


Yes, but you are advised to plan consistent IP addresses for the IPMI interface of each node for the ease of remote node management. In addition, you are advised to plan all IP addresses in a management network segment that is usually a private network segment. The private network segment has no requirements on the number of IP addresses and allows requests for application.
