I am setting up a Dell N2048P switch. Using console, I have assigned an IP address and created a user/password following the getting started guide:-

SNMP Interface = “public”@

User Account setup = admin

Password = admin123

Out-of-band IP address = DHCP

VLAN1 Router Interface IP =

Default Gateway =

I am trying to connect to the switch via Dell OpenManage Switch Administrator interfaceover ethernet from a Laptop running Ubuntu, but I cannot access the device by ping, or using an http browser. There are no other devices connected - just the switch and laptop. Any suggestions as to next steps? Is the OpenManage only accessible over OOB?
