Hi @bughawpula 

The dedicated port only works for IPMI whereas the shared port can work for both UVMs traffic and IPMI, also with the current models the IPMI ports works at 1Gb and shared port works at 10Gbe copper

I tend to always use the dedicated IPMI port for IPMI traffic because its not seen by the CVM and gets things more “independent”. Not seen by the CVM means that when your launch manage_ovs show_interfaces it’s not listed as an “usable” port for UVMs

 

This is an old model but you can get the idea

 

Hope this help

Regards!
