Generation 5 Hardware - Network ports

Identify the ports on Generation 5 hardware and connect those cables.

Generation 5 hardware contains management ports so they can be managed from McAfee ESM. The following images identify the management and collection ports.

1U ERC



  1. Monitor connection

  3. Eth1, labeled MGMT 2
    • For non-HA configuration - additional MGMT port
    • For HA ERC, shared IP address
  4. Labeled IPMI
    • For non-HA configuration - remote management access
    • For HA ERC - HA configuration connection to Eth5 secondary receiver
  5. Eth2, labeled A - can use as additional MGMT port
  6. Eth3, labeled B - can use as additional MGMT port
  7. Eth4, labeled C
    • For non-HA configuration - additional MGMT port
    • For HA ERC - HA configuration connection to Eth4 secondary receiver - Heartbeat
  8. Eth5, labeled D
