I/A Series Enterprise Network Controller
The ENC DHCP function was enabled by mistake on a system that does not have a DHCP server. The ENC when booted up will try to get an IP address from a DHCP server which does not exist and the ENC may not have a valid IP address.
Connect to the ENC via its serial shell and perform the following procedure. Refer to Lesson Learned article #5623 for details on connecting to the ENC serial shell.
1. Connect to the ENC serial shell using Windows HyperTerminal. Allow the ENC to boot up completely and you should see output messages similar to the following.
2. Select option 2 for update the network settings.
3. Press 'enter' (enter leaves the field at the original setting) for each field until the 'IP address (clear to use DHCP)' field.
4. Type in the required IP address here and press enter. This will disable the ENC DHCP function.
5. Key in the subnet mask at the next line and select 'n' when prompted to use IPv6.
6. Press enter until you are prompted to save the changes.
