sdm prefer lanbase-routing
That's the one. I wasn't sitting in front of one last night so my config was from my ever (un)reliable memory.
Enabling that allows multiple SVI's to exist rather than just a single management SVI, and any directly attached networks can be routed. You can Telnet / SSH into any of the SVI's to manage the switch. A default route can be added in the normal way too. I've deployed 4 of them recently with anither 3 in the pipeline for different projects where IGP's are not reuqired.
They are Layer 2 switches, but have certain routing features enabled. I really like them.
