7.
Follow the system prompts to uncompress and install the application.
Step 7. Configure iSR6142 Management Port IP Address
Connect the router’s 10/100 Ethernet port to your workstation using a switch or hub. Alternatively you may connect your
workstation directly to the router using an Ethernet crossover cable.
The iSR6142 management port’s default IP address is 10.0.0.1 subnet 255.0.0.0. Make sure the workstation connected
to the iSR6142 Router has Ethernet address 10.0.0.x, where x is other than 1 and subnet mask is 255.0.0.0.
From the workstation, open a command window and using a telnet session connect to iSR6142 using IP address 10.0.0.1.
Login as “guest” and use the password “password.” This will take you to a CLI prompt as shown in Figure 4.
Figure 4. QLogic Router Command Line Interface
Enter the CLI command admin start. Default password is “config.” Enter the set mgmt command at the QRouter
(admin) #> prompt.
Select the mode. We recommend you use static address. Select Option 0 (Static), enter the IP address, Subnet
Mask, and Gateway.
You will lose the connectivity of the telnet session at this time. If you want to continue using the CLI, restart the telnet
session with the IP address you just assigned to the management port.

Step 9. Configure iSR6142s for Connecting Remote SANs
Configuration requirement:
❑
At least one FC Port of the iSR6142 should be connected to a FC SAN.
❑
It is recommended to use Fibre Channel World Wide Port name (WWPN) based zoning. Add each iSR6142
router’s FC WWPN to all zones in the FC switch to which it is connected. The FC switch zoning changes allow
the iSR6142 router to discover all devices in the FC SAN.
Additional requirement for remote SAN island connectivity:
❑
The iSCSI/GE port IP addresses of both local and remote routers must be set so that the routers are accessible
to each other.
❑
The management port IP address of both local and remote routers must be set so that the routers are accessible
to each other.
❑
It is recommended that you have installed SmartWrite™ feature (License) on each router.
Associate remote iSR6142 to local iSR6142:
