Summary

How the MAC address is assigned to dedicated management port, and OCP in case of Intel® Server System M50CYP Family

Description

MAC addresses are assigned for management NICs from a pool of up to three MAC addresses allocated specifically for manageability.

Resolution

Intel® Server System M50CYP Family follows below MAC address allocation.

BMC LAN channel 1 MAC address = MAC address on the Pull out tab
BMC LAN channel 2 MAC address = MAC address on the pull out tab + 1
BMC LAN channel 3 MAC address or dedicated Server management NIC = MAC address on the pull out tab + 2

If system has OCP installed BMC LAN channel 1 and BMC LAN channel 2 will be enabled in BMC web console > Configuration > IPV4 network and in the "LAN Channel" drop down
