BootRom IP address assignment


trying to change IP address to access tftp, in BootROM as version 2.0.2.1 does not allow us to use config none.

BootRom > configip ipaddress 192.168.1.1/24 gateway 192.168.1.2
invalid ip address 192.168.1.1/24
configip - configure Mgmt Ethernet network parameters

Usage:
configip [ipaddress | ip] [i] [gateway | gw] [netmask | nm]

what is the correct command sequence dont know what mistake i am making here?

Subnet mask should not be specified with /24.
Use like in the example in this article.

You need to specify the netmask and not IP/mask in slash notation:

configip ipaddress 192.168.1.1 gateway 192.168.1.2 netmask 255.255.255.0
Thanks all, it worked. actually i was following old GTAC documents, there it was mentioned as /24

Which document did you use? Is there something that we need to update?
