A customer is changing the network configuration within his/her data center and wishes to change the System Controller (SC) Community (C) Network to be able to use different IP addresses. How would he/she change the network configuration to allow for the new IP addresses?

The Sun Fire[TM] 12K/15K/E20K/E25K platform has 3 MAN networks (Management Networks). They are the C, the I1, and the I2. For a complete description of the MAN network, see "Sun Fire[TM] 12K/15K/E20K/E25K: Management Networks (MAN)".

For the purpose of this document, we will focus on the C network only. The C network consists of two interfaces on each SC that are externally connected to the "world" via ethernet cables.

On the CP1500 (Nordica) SC, the C network interfaces are hme0 and eri1.
On the CP2140 (Othello+) SC, the C network interfaces are eri0 and eri3.
