SR650 unable to set Network Interface to shared

SR650 type 7x06

As I only have one NIC on this server I need to change the network interface to "shared", but only option is "Dedicated"

xcalrity -> BMC settings -> network Settings -> network interface port.

Re: SR650 unable to set Network Interface to shared

Hi JRachwalski,
Could you provide us the LXPM screenshot? Is the share option displayed gray out and not able to be selected or other conditions?
 
I checked the machine in my lab, and the "share" option is selectable from the drop-down menu of Network Interface Port.
My configuration is installed Intel X722 2-ports LOM.
The screen is displayed as follows:

I do not have any LOM installed, perhaps that is why.

Based on the manual I thought the BNC port could be shared, but appears not to be an option without an additonal card installed.

That is correct,

 

You can use the shared option through an installed network interface. All traffic sent to the BMC will be received from the installed network interface and forwarded to the BMC. Unfortunately, this can't be done the other way around.
