7.) Also in the Addres tab, Make sure DHCP is enabled and add the Identifier for the device:

    If the Device is in the both of the Main Racks of a HotStandby M580, the syntax for the Identifier must be entered as M58A_XX_PMESWT01 and M58B_XX_PMESWT01, respectively.

    In these case XX is the 2 digit slot number from 01 - 11, YYY is the 3 digit CRA Rack number from 000 to 159.
