Turning on the Avaya P460
Introduction
Once you have installed the Avaya P460 chassis and modules, you can turn the
chassis on. The Avaya P460 chassis can accommodate one, two or three PSUs
(Power Supply Units). The available power is divided among the modules by the
Supervisor Module. See “Power Management“ on page 23 further information.
This chapter describes three basic scenarios:
• Turning on the P460 chassis in various configurations.
• Adding a PSU to the P460 chassis.
• Removing a PSU from the chassis.
Danger: The fans are on whenever the power is on in the chassis.
Caution: Do not leave any PSU slots open. Use the the blanking plates supplied to
cover empty slots.
Installing a PSU
L Use the handle on the front panel of the PSU to lift it.
L You can install the PSU in any of the three slots.
1 Remove the blanking plate by unscrewing the four retaining screws and gently
tugging the plate towards you.
2 Position the PSU with the label facing up and to the right.
3 Gently slide the PSU back until the socket on the back of the PSU engages in the
plug on the chassis.
L Ensure the guiding pins on the front panel of the PSU align with the holes on
the front panel of the P460 chassis.
4 Gently tighten the screws on the PSU.
Avaya P460 Installation and Maintenance Guide

Chapter 4
Turning on the Avaya P460
Powering Up
In order to turn on the chassis you need to install at least one PSU and at least one
Supervisor Module.
L The fans are on whenever the power is on in the chassis, whether Supervisor
Modules are installed or not.
Turning on a Chassis with Supervisor and I/O Modules Already Inserted
If you have inserted Supervisor module(s) and I/O module(s) into the chassis before
turning on the PSUs, the power-up procedure is as follows:
1 The Supervisor module(s) and fans are turned on automatically when the PSUs
are turned on.
2 The Supervisor module will turn on the modules one by one, verifying that
there is enough power budget in the system first. If there are two Supervisor
modules, the Active Supervisor Module perfoms this procedure.
Turning on a Chassis with a Supervisor Module Only
L The fans are on whenever the power is on in the chassis, whether Supervisor
Modules are installed or not.
If you turn on the PSU(s) in a chassis with a Supervisor Module, the power-up
procedure is as follows:
1 The fans start.
2 The supervisor module is turned on.
X You can now insert I/O Modules
Turning on a Chassis with no Modules
If you turn on the PSU(s) in an empty chassis – no Supervisor modules – the fans
will start up.
Inserting an Additional PSU
1
2
3
20
The SPV adds the new PSU power budget and checks how many PSUs are
present in the chassis
Modules not powered up because of an insufficient power budget are turned
on. Otherwise the new PSU power is just added to the total available power.
The PSU you insert are in redundant mode if the existing PSUs can already
provide enough power for the chassis and installed components.
Avaya P460 Installation and Maintenance Guide
Chapter 4
Turning on the Avaya P460
Removing or Switching off a PSU
If there is one PSU
The entire chassis turns off
If there are two PSUs
1 When you remove a PSU from the chassis, the Supervisor Module recalculates
the power budget. If the power requirement exceeds the capacity of one PSU,
the I/O modules are then turned on according to the power budgeting scheme
described below. See Figure 4.1.
a The chassis is automatically turned on with only the Supervisor Modules
and the fans getting power from the available PSU
b If all the available I/O modules were operational before the PSU removal/
failure, the Supervisor Module starts to apply power. The power is first
applied to as many I/O modules as possible within the power budget limit
of the single PSU. This can mean that an I/O module with a low power
requirement and low priority is powered up rather than a high power
requirement module with a higher priority.
c Slots whose power is disabled are skipped.

The Power Management Process
L The power management process is activated in the SPV only if there is a change
in power requirements or supply caused by one of the following events:
• Power-up sequence
• PSU removal if there are two PSUs
• PSU insertion if there is only one PSU
• I/O module insertion
• I/O module removal
• Administratively enabling/disabling a slot
L Removing both supervisors turns off the entire system.
L In case of power failure in a module, the Supervisor module receives an
indication from the failed module. The Supervisor module will turn off the I/O
module and issues a warning.

Maximizing Avaya P460 Availability
Introduction
In order to maximize availability of the Avaya P460 for applications such as VoIP,
you can deploy a variety of redundancy mechanisms.
This chapter describes the Supervisor module and I/O module redundancy and
power supply availability features.
M460ML-SPV Supervisor Module Redundancy
To enable supervisor redundancy, you need to install two M460ML-SPV Supervisor
Modules in a P460 Chassis. Ensure that one Supervisor module is “Active” and that
the second is “Standby”.
M460ML-SPV Supervisor Module Modes:
• Active – The Supervisor Module is operating
• Standby – This Supervisor Module is fully synchronized with the Active one and
can replace it in the case of failure.
• Halted – This Supervisor Module is not synchronized with the Active one and
cannot act as a standby module.
You can verify the Supervisor Module mode by:
• the ACT and OPR LED status (refer to Table 6.1)
• the show spv CLI command, or
• the P460 Manager.

Chapter 6
Maximizing Avaya P460 Availability
Configuring the Supervisor Modules for Active/Standby Operation
In order to operate in an Active-Standby configuration, the two SPVs must be
synchronized.
• If the Supervisor modules are not synchronized, one is Active and the other
Halted.
In this case you will need to synchronize them manually. See “Synchronizing
the Supervisor Modules Manually“ on page 36.
• Both Supervisor modules switching fabrics participate in switching/routing in
Active-Standby configuration only
• A Supervisor module which was Active stays Active after a chassis reset
One of the SPVs can operate as Standby automatically only if both of the following
conditions are fulfilled:
• The current chassis is the last one in which you inserted this SPV
• The current running SW images are the same version
Synchronizing the Supervisor Modules Manually
If the SPVs are not synchronized, you need to synchronize them manually using the
Avaya P460 CLI.
Note: Synchronization can be required for a complete synchronization also if the
SPVs are in an Active-Standby configuration. For example, when the SPVs boot
with the same SW but from different banks
1 Access the CLI. See Chapter 7, “Establishing Switch Access“
2 Enter the sync spv command from the Active Supervisor Module.
L This command transfers the following information from the Active Supervisor
module to the other Supervisor module:
— Firmware images
— Embedded Web image
— Preferred boot bank
— Chassis synchronization
L The transfer process can take up to 90 seconds.

Redundant Power Supplies
The Avaya P460 supports automatic Power Supply redundancy and load-sharing.
Power supply redundancy is activated according to the number of PSUs and I/O
modules you have installed in the chassis.
Three PSUs are automatically configured in 2+1 redundancy mode.
If the installed power supplies can provide sufficient power for the switch, then an
additional power supply is automatically configured to operate in Redundancy
mode.
If the power budget requirement increases beyond the power available from the
non-redundant power supplies, then the additional power supply reverts to regular
mode.
In order to check whether power supply redundancy is operating, you can use the
show environment power CLI command.
Note: The “Total Power drawn from the system” always includes the power
reserved for two supervisor modules and the fan module.

Calculating the Power Budget
You can also calculate how many PSUs you need in order to provide redundancy
for a specific configuration.
You need to add the power requirements for the I/O modules installed to the base
requirement of two Supervisor modules and one Fan module. If the total is less than
the power supplied by the number of PSUs installed, an additional PSU provides
redundancy.

User Authentication
Introduction
User Authentication is an important element of maintaining secure networks. It
prevents unauthorized network management and stops users from reconfiguring
network devices.
Local User Accounts
The Local User Account feature allows you to define up to ten accounts that can
manage a local (single) P460 switch. This simplifies administration on small
networks or where users do not log in to more than one switch.
Note: If you wish to define more than ten users per switch, or accounts for a user on
multiple switches, you should use RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-In User
Service). Refer to “RADIUS“ on page 57.
You need to define a user name, password and access level for each user.
Access Levels
In addition to the user name and password, you need to assign an access level for
each user. There are three access levels, each of which allows the user only to
perform certain actions. Refer to Table 9.1 for a brief description of each level.

User Authentication
RADIUS
Introduction to RADIUS
Local user accounts (see “Local User Accounts“ on page 55) are kept locally on the
switch. Therefore, if a site contains multiple Avaya Switches, it is necessary to
configure each switch with its own user accounts. Additionally, if for example a
'read-write' user has to be changed into a 'read-only' user, it will be necessary to
change all the 'read-write' passwords configured locally in every switch, in order to
prevent him to access this level anymore. This can be tedious at best, and at worst,
unmanageable. A better solution is to have all of the user login information kept in a
central location where all the switches can access it. Enter Remote Authentication
Dial-In User Service (RADIUS).
RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service) provides a mechanism for
such consolidation. A RADIUS authentication server is installed on a central
computer at the customer's site. On this server user authentication (account)
information is configured that provides various degrees of access to the switch. The
P460 will run as a RADIUS client. When a user attempts to log into the switch, if
there is no local user account for the entered user name and password, then the
switch will send an Authentication Request to the RADIUS server in an attempt to
authenticate the user remotely. If the user name and password are authenticated,
then the RADIUS server responds to the switch with an Authentication
Acknowledgement that includes information on the user's privileges
('administrator', 'read-write', or 'read-only'), and the user is allowed to gain access to
the switch. If the user is not authenticated, then an Authentication Reject is sent to
the switch and the user is not allowed access to the switch's embedded
management.

Allowed Managers
With the Allowed Managers feature, the network manager can determine who may
or may not gain management access to the switch. The feature can be enabled or
disabled (default is disabled). When enabled, only those users that are configured in
the Allowed Managers table are able to gain Telnet, HTTP, and SNMP management
access to the switch.
You can configure up to 20 Allowed Mangers by adding or removing their IP
address from the Allowed Managers List.
Note: The identification of an “Allowed Manager” is done by checking the Source IP
address of the packets, thus if the Source IP address is modified on the way (NAT,
Proxy, etc.), even an “Allowed Manager” will not be able to access the P460.

Replacing Supervisor Modules
One Supervisor Module in the Switch
When you remove the Supervisor module, the switch is turned off. The switch is
turned on after you insert a replacement Supervisor module.
Two Supervisor Modules in the Switch
If you remove the Active Supervisor module, the
Configuring the Supervisor Modules for Active/Standby Operation
In order to operate in an Active-Standby configuration, the two SPVs must be
synchronized.
• If the Supervisor modules are not synchronized, one is Active and the other
Halted.
In this case you will need to synchronize them manually. See “Synchronizing
the Supervisor Modules Manually“ on page 36.
• Both Supervisor modules switching fabrics participate in switching/routing in
Active-Standby configuration only
• A Supervisor module which was Active stays Active after a chassis reset
Avaya P460 Installation and Maintenance Guide

Chapter 13
Maintenance
One of the SPVs can operate as Standby automatically only if both of the following
conditions are fulfilled:
• The current chassis is the last one in which you inserted this SPV
• The current running SW images are the same version
Firmware Download
You can perform software download using the copy tftp command (see page 26
of the Avaya P460 Reference Guide) or the Avaya Software Update Manager (part of
the Avaya™ Multiservice Network Manager Suite).
L You can obtain the latest firmware from the Avaya support site at
http://www.support.avaya.com
Introduction
Each P460 Supervisor module has two firmware image banks (“A” and “B”) and
one Device Manager (Embedded Web) bank.
The download is on a per-chassis basis and the firmware is automatically loaded
into the standby Supervisor module (if configured) in addition to the active
Supervisor module.
L Firmware is not downloaded to a halted Supervisor module.
You download the firmware to each bank separately via the CLI. The download
progress is shown on the screen.
Preferred Bank
You can choose which firmware bank to boot from (preferred bank) using the set
boot bank command.
L Changing the preferred bank affects both SPVs.
Booting from the Alternate Firmware Bank
Push the ASB button together with both function switches on the SPV front panel to
boot from the alternate SW bank.
L If the SPVs were running in a Active-Standby configuration and ASB caused
SW incompatibility between the SPVs, the Standby SPV will switch to Halted
mode.

Configuration File Management
You can transfer the Layer 2 parameters to or from the current NVRAM running
configuration file to a TFTP server.
This feature permits you to make a backup of the parameters. You can then use that
file to configure other Avaya P460 switches without re-entering all the parameters
manually.
L To use this feature, you need to have an active tftp server, and to create a file
into which to download the data.
If Avaya MultiService Network Manager is running, you do not require an
additional TFTP server.
Configuration Management CLI Commands
In order to...
