Haven't set ours up yet, but the documentation indicates that the left hand 1Gb is required, "This port is required, because it allows access to the Cisco DNA Center GUI."

In the video you said it is optional.

Edit: Elsewhere in the documentation it says the port is optional. Gotta love consistency.

Cisco doc recommends you use the first 1G for OOB mgmt but you don't really need to. The problem with that is there is only one default GW for all interfaces and you normally put it on the Enterprise 10G interface so if you use the 1G for mgmt, you either can only connect from host on same subnet or need to configure static route which might not be practical. Unless the Enterprise 10G is in an isolated network, we would say just access your GUI that way and forgo the 1G.

You are right about the (in)consistency :)
