Telnet connection from core switch sub-switch

Hello 🙂

I have a extreme core switch (A) where an lwl cable is connected to another switch (B) (uplink port)

The switch (B) has no ip address yet. I can only access the switch if I connect directly with a notebook via the management port.

I can access the switch (A) via telnet
Is it possible that I can access switch (B) from switch (A) via telnet?
If yes, how can I do this?

The switch needs an IP for the telnet connection.

# configure vlan XXX ipaddress x.x.x.x x.x.x.x

You may create temporary vlan on core switch and connect untagged port of that vlan to mgmt port on switch (B)
