Can't load XClarity Control in a browser

Hi,

 

I'm new to server. I'm building a new server before shipping out to an office. I've set up Xclarity control's IP address via Xclarity Provisioning tool from bios. But I can't ping or load the static IP address that I've set. I'm trying to access it from within the server Windows 2019. Here's the details

 

Static IP assigned to Xclarity control: 172.16.10.1

Assigned a hostname: clarity

DHCP address set up for the server: 172.16.10.100 (I'm assiging a static IP address of the destination office before setting it up offsite)

 

Now the confusing part is that if I ipconfig/all it shows two internfaces.

What is this address for 169.254.95.120? Is this the xClarity Control address? Why is not showing the static IP adddress 172.16.10.1 that I've assigned?

 

If I enter 172.16.10.1 in a browser it just shows 'can't reach website'. If telnet into 169.254.95.118 (I understand this is a Lan over usb ip address to connect to xclarity??) and do ifcofig eth0 then it shows the static IP address 172.16.10.1 that I've assigned to xclarity control so it seems it's set correctly? And if I load the 169.254.95.120 address into a browser, it shows me certificate error so it seems it's trying to load something.

Can someone please point out what I'm doing wrong? Thanks for your help.

Hi Seantes,

 

Could you please refer Setting up the XClarity Controller network connection through the XClarity Provisioning Manager to setup network connection through LXPM. You can check the XClarity Controller network connection setting in the BMC Settings section.

You can setup DHCP or static IP to assign IP address.

Hi Seantes

 

The IP address: 169.254.95.120 is for in-bound access for XCC, you can use this ip address to access XCC on local-host via browser.

Re: Can't load XClarity Control in a browser

Just answering my question. The answer was to set the XCC interface in the bios to 'shared' (instead of 'dedicated') as my server only has one NIC card. With this at least I can access from another system. I still can't access from within the server using 169.254.95.120 (or 118) but it's not a big issue.
