We always thought that the Management Port of the Summit Switches are totally independent from the switch ports, with an own VLAN and own Router interface. Because of this we choose the Management Port to connect the switches permanently to the central network for example to monitor them with RidgeLine and to configure the uplinks.
If we connect the Management Port to the same switch to where the Uplink goes the Management Port becomes unstable with periodic disconnects until the a warm restart of the switch. This behaves a little like a loop although the Management Port should behave like a second independent switch. Can somebody explain that ?
