  4. Initial configuration

    1. ONIE: Please refer to ONIE User Manual - https://docs.nvidia.com/networking/software/switch-software/index.html.

    2. Cumulus: By default, the MGMT port will acquire the IP from DHCP. You can cross reference the MAC of the switch with your DHCP server (MAC can be found on switch label) or use "ifconfig eth0" (when using MGMT0). For further information, refer to: https://docs.nvidia.com/networking-ethernet-software/cumulus-linux//.
