cisco 4506 switch - configure 10/100 mgmt interface

how can i configure the mgmt 10/100 interface on a cisco 4506?

its running  - Cisco IOS  12.2(25)

I cant see how to select the interface... eg interface ethernet0 or fastethernet 0/1 etc doesnt work.

 When i do a show interfaces it lists Ethernet SVI

 show ip interface brief shows only the gigabit ports

something has to be plugged into at least one of the switchports. Plug in a laptop, pc, or anything and VLAN1 will come up
To manage the switch, use the VLAN 1 interface IP address
 interface vlan 1
  ip address x.x.x.x 255.255.255.x

All ports are in VLAN 1 by default so you can access this IP from almost any switchport

I cant plug my laptop in except to 10/100 mgmt as the switch only has gig ports - I guess i'll need to slot in a copper blade before i can configure...?

Yes. How else were you thinking of configuring it by its IP address?

Which sup card do you have?  I beleive you can get copper GBIC's and use in the sup cards gig ports (if it supports the copper GBIC's) and connect  to it at 100 Mbps directly.

Otherwise, to configure it using IP you need to be able to connect to it using IP, which mean you need Ethernet connectivity of some sort.
