We have a very small network with a single cumulus switch. (And a second HP POE switch). How can I connect to the management port Eth0? I'm assuming it would be a very bad idea to connect it to the data plane ports with a patch cable. But I have no other ideas at the moment?
Thank you for the quick response. I know it's not oob, but all I really need is a way for my workstation to configure the switch for day to day stuff. Should I really eff up, then I could use my laptop plugged directly into eth0. Not an ideal setup, but it gets me out of a bind.
