OmniSwitch 6600 Family
Features
The OmniSwitch 6600 Family (OS6624, OS6600-U24,
OS6648, OS6600-P24, OS6602-24, and OS6602-48) are next
generation enterprise edge/workgroup switches. These
switches are based on the same software architecture as
OmniSwitch 7000 and 8000 series switches (i.e., OS7700,
OS7800, and OS8800). These switches are designed to meet
the most stringent network requirements for mission-critical
networks.
OmniSwitch 6600 Family switches are optimized for voice
and data integration and provide non-blocking multi-Gigabit
Ethernet capacity. Additional features include Carrier-class
intelligence, best of breed QoS, Carrier-class resiliency,
network management, and advanced policy-based VLANs and
security. OmniSwitch 6600 Family switches also support wirespeed Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching, industry-based standards, and a full array of reliability, redundancy and resiliency
capabilities.
March 2005
Stand-Alone and Stacked
Configurations
Stand-Alone
A stand-alone OmniSwitch 6600 Family switch is ideal for
small and medium-sized network edge applications, offering
24 10/100 ports (OS6624 and OS6602-24), 24 Power over
Ethernet (PoE) ports (OS6600-P24), 48 10/100 (OS6648 and
OS6602-48) ports, and 24 100 SFP ports (OS6600-U24).
These switches provide support for enterprise-based devices,
such as computer workstations or IP telephones.
A single OmniSwitch 6600 Family also supports two Gigabit
Ethernet uplinks for high-bandwidth connections to a backbone or server.

Stacked Configurations
Availability Features
In addition to working as individual, stand-alone switches,
OmniSwitch 6600 Family switches can also be linked together
to form a single, high-density virtual chassis known as a stack.
The OmniSwitch 6600 Family provides a broad variety of
Availability features. Availability features are hardware- and
software-based safeguards that help prevent the loss of data
flow in the event of a subsystem failure.
Stacking switches provides scalability by allowing users to
quickly and easily expand 10/100 port density. Twenty-four
10/100 ports are added for each OS6624 brought into the
stack; twenty-four 100 SFP ports are added for each OS6600U24; forty-eight 10/100 ports are added for each OS6648.
Up to eight switches can be stacked. OmniSwitch 6600 Family
switches can be mixed and matched in any combination within
the stack. This provides a virtual chassis with a 10/100 or 100
capacity of up to 384 ports.
As with the stand-alone configuration, a stacked virtual chassis configuration provides Gigabit Ethernet uplinks to a backbone or server.
Note. For basic information on stacking OmniSwitch 6600
Family switches into a virtual chassis, refer to
“Completing a Stacked Configuration” on page 24.
For additional information, refer to the OmniSwitch
6600 Family Hardware Users Guide.

OmniSwitch 6600 Family
In addition, some Availability features allow you to maintain
or replace hardware components without powering off your
switch or interrupting switch operations.
Combined, these features provide added resiliency and help
ensure that your switch is consistently available for your dayto-day network operations.
Hardware-related Availability features include:
• Smart Continuous Switching
• Software Rollback
• Hot Swapping
• Hardware Monitoring
For information on these Availability features, refer to the
OmniSwitch 6600 Family Hardware Users Guide.

following items in order to complete this installation:
OmniSwitch 6600 Family switches have the following general
electrical requirements:
• Grounding wrist strap
• Phillips screwdriver
• Serial cable
• Rack mount screws, if applicable
• Each switch requires one grounded AC power source
for each power supply installed in the chassis .
• Grounded AC power source must be 110V for North
American installations (220V international).

mately 6.5 feet) long. Do not use extension cords.
Site Preparation
Environmental Requirements
OmniSwitch 6600 Family switches have the following environmental and airflow requirements:
• The installation site must maintain a temperature
Redundant Circuit Recommendation. If possible, it is
recommended that the primary and back up power
supplies are plugged into AC sources on separate circuits.
With redundant AC, if a single circuit fails, the switch’s
back up power supply (on a separate circuit) will likely be
unaffected and can therefore continue operating.
between 0° and 45° Celsius (32° and 122° Fahrenheit)
and not exceed 95 percent maximum humidity (noncondensing) at any time.
• Be sure to allow adequate room for proper air ventila-
tion and access at the front, back, and sides of the

“right side up.” Never attempt to operate a switch positioned on its side.
To install the switch as a tabletop unit, follow the steps below:
1 Position the chassis on the table or bench where it is to
be installed. Refer to page 7 for chassis weight considerations.
2 Be sure that adequate clearance has been provided for
chassis airflow and access to the front, back, and sides of
the switch. For recommended clearances, refer to page 9.
Also, be sure that you have placed the chassis within reach
of all required AC power sources. For environmental and
electrical requirements, refer to page 6.
3 If you are placing multiple switches in a stacked
configuration, carefully stack the remaining switches, one
on top of the other. Up to eight switches may be stacked to
form a single virtual chassis. Be sure to maintain adequate
clearance at the front, rear, left, and right side of all
switches.
4 Verify that the on/off switch for each OmniSwitch
6600 Family is in the off ( O ) position.

Blank Cover Plates
Blank cover plates are factory-installed in the chassis and are
used to cover empty uplink and stacking module slots, as well
as empty back up power supply bays.
These cover plates play an important role in chassis airflow
and temperature management. They also protect the switch’s
processor board and other sensitive internal switch components from physical damage by closing off a chassis that is not
fully populated.
Because they regulate airflow and help protect internal chassis
components, blank cover plates should remain installed over
empty module slots and power supply bays at all times.
For detailed diagrams showing chassis airflow and the effects
of missing blank cover plates on chassis airflow, refer to the
Hardware Users Guide.
March 2005
Setting Up the Hardware
21
Connections and Cabling
Once your switch is properly set up and all required hardware
components are installed, you should connect all network and
management cables required for your network applications.
Connections may include:
• Serial cable (OS6624 and OS6648) or RJ-45 (OS6600-
U24, OS6600-P24, OS6602-24, OS6602-48) to the
console port
Connecting the Serial Cable to the
Console Port
The console port, located on the chassis front panel, provides a
serial connection to the switch and is required when logging
into the switch for the first time. By default, this connector (a
male DB-9 on OS6624 and OS6648 and an RJ-45 on OS6600U24, OS6600-P24, OS6602-24, OS6602-48) provides a DCE
console connection.
• Gigabit Ethernet cables to MiniGBICs, as required by
your network
• Ethernet cables to 10/100 Ethernet ports, as required
by your network
• Single mode or multimode fiber cables to SFPs
(OS6600-U24), as required by your network
Important. If you are installing switches in a stacked
configuration, do not install the stacking cables at this
time, as this will adversely affect the slot assignments.
You will be prompted to install the stacking cables later in
the setup process.
Serial Connection Default Settings
The default settings for the serial connection are as follows:
baud rate
9600
parity
none
data bits (word size)
8
stop bits

For information on modifying these settings, refer to
“Modifying the Serial Connection Settings” on page 38.
Stacked Configurations. To modify the default serial
settings for switches in a stack, you must configure these
settings when each switch is operating as a stand-alone
unit.

The Next Step
If you are setting up a stand-alone OmniSwitch 6600 Family
switch (i.e., a switch that is not a part of a stacked configuration), skip to “Booting Stand-Alone Switches” on page 29.
March 2005
Connections and Cabling
23
Completing a Stacked Configuration
All switches in the stacked configuration should now be
placed in their proper location (e.g., tabletop to rack). In order
to complete the stacked configuration process, you must
complete the following steps:
• By default, the primary—or management—role will be
given to the switch with the lowest chassis MAC
address. All other switches in the stack will be in nonoperational status until slot numbers are assigned by
the user and the stack is manually rebooted.
1 Individually assign slot numbers to all switches
2 Attach all required stacking cables
3 Boot the newly-configured stack
For OmniSwitch 6600 Family switches, the term “slot” refers
to the priority status of the switch within the stacked configuration. Slot numbers may range from 1 to 8.
Slot Assignment Guidelines
Before assigning slot numbers to switches in a stacked configuration, note the following guidelines.
• Slot numbers do not need to be sequential. However,
each switch in a stack must have a unique slot number.
If duplicate slot numbers are encountered, an error will
occur and the stack will be disabled.
• After manually assigning the slot assignments for all
switches and rebooting the stack, the primary role will
be given to the switch with the lowest slot number. The
secondary role will be given to the switch with the
next-lowest number. All additional switches with
higher numbers will be given idle status. For more
information on primary, secondary, and idle roles, refer
to the “Managing OmniSwitch 6600 Family Stacks”
chapter in the OmniSwitch 6600 Family Hardware
Users Guide.
• Changing the slot number of a chassis does not imme-
diately change its management role (i.e., primary,
secondary, or idle). You must reboot all the switches in
the stack before these changes will take effect.
Refer to the illustration on page 26 for one of many valid
slot numbering possibilities.
• The top switch in the stack does not have to be desig-
nated as slot 1.
24
Completing a Stacked Configuration
Follow the steps beginning on page 25 to assign slot numbers
for OmniSwitch 6600 Family switches.
March 2005
Assigning Slot Numbers
1 Power on a single switch in the stack. Do not power on
any additional switches in the stack at this time.
The slot number is displayed by the slot indicator LED
located on the left side of the chassis front panel (refer to
“OmniSwitch 6600 Status LEDs” on page 67 for more
information). Because the switch’s default slot number is
8, the slot indicator LED displays “8” when the switch is
first booted.

Connecting Cables
to Stacking Modules
Guidelines
• Port numbers are clearly marked on the chassis front
panel.
1 Starting from the top of the stack, attach one end of a
30 cm stacking cable to a High Speed Serial Data
Connector (HSSDC) located on the switch’s stacking
module, as shown.
• If you have not already individually assigned slot
numbers and powered off each switch, do not connect
stacking cables to the stacking modules. Instead, refer to
“Assigning Slot Numbers” on page 25 and follow the
instructions for assigning slot numbers to each switch.
• Before attempting to connect OmniSwitch 6600 Family
switches in a stacked configuration, be sure that stacking
modules are installed in the EXPANSION/STACKING
slots of all switches. The stacking module provides two
dedicated High Speed Serial Data Connectors (HSSDCs) at
ports 27 and 28 (OS6624, OS6600-U24, OS6600-P24,
OS6602-24) or 51 and 52 (OS6648 and OS6602-48). For
detailed information on installing stacking modules, refer
to “Installing Uplink and Stacking Modules” on page 16.

back up power supplies (if applicable), continue to
“Verifying LED Status” on page 30.
Booting the Stack
In order for the switches in the stack to operate using their
newly-assigned slot numbers, all switches in the stack must be
manually booted. To manually boot the stack, follow the steps
below.
1 Power on all switches by moving the on/off switch for
each switch to the on ( | ) position.
Booting Stand-Alone
Switches
1 To boot a single, stand-alone switch, simply move the
on/off switch for each switch to the on ( | ) position. This
switch is located on the rear panel of the switch, next to
the power cord socket.
Important. Be sure to power on all switches in the stack
in rapid succession. If you do not power up all switches
within approximately three seconds, switches may take
unintended stack management roles.
Note. Because the switch’s default slot number is 8, the
slot indicator LED displays “8” when the switch is first
booted.
After the stack is completely booted, all switches in the
stack will operate with the user-assigned slot numbers.
2 If the stand-alone switch has a back up power supply
installed, you may power on this unit as well. Move the
on/off switch for the back up power supply to the on ( | )
position.
Automatic Software Synchronization. In order to ensure
effective redundancy within a stacked configuration, the
primary switch will automatically distribute its system and
configuration software to all switches in the stack as the
virtual chassis boots.
3 After you have booted the stand-alone switch and
powered on the back up power supply (if applicable),
continue to “Verifying LED Status” on page 30. This
section provides information on LED states and switch
status both during and after the boot process.
2 If back up power supplies are installed in one or more
switches in the stack, power on all back up power supplies
at this time.

Verifying LED Status
Component LEDs
The boot process takes a few moments to complete. During
this process, the LEDs on the switch’s front panel may flash
and change color, indicating different stages of the boot.
Following a successful boot, the LEDs should display as
follows:

Verifying LED Status
If the LEDs do not display as indicated, make sure the boot
process is complete. Again, the boot process may take several
moments to complete. If the LEDs do not display as indicated
following a complete boot sequence, contact Alcatel Customer
Support.
Verifying Primary and Secondary Status
Primary, Secondary and Idle switch status is monitored
through the PRI and SEC LEDs.
Note. The PRI and SEC LEDs on the switch’s front panel
are the most accurate and reliable method for determining
the current role of a switch within a stacked configuration.
PRI LED
Now that the stack has been completely configured and rebooted, the primary—or management—role should be assigned to
the switch with the lowest assigned slot number. In other
words, if you assigned a switch in the stack as slot 1, this
switch should have the primary role.
To verify this, check the PRI LED on the front panel of the
switch with the lowest assigned slot number. The PRI LED
should be illuminated solid green.
March 2005
SEC LED
The secondary role is given to the switch with the next-lowest
number.
To verify this, check the SEC LED on the front panel of the
switch with the next-lowest assigned slot number. The SEC
LED should be illuminated solid green.
Idle Status
All additional switches with higher numbers will be given idle
status. The PRI and SEC LEDs for these switches will be off.
For additional information on primary, secondary, and idle
roles within the stack, refer to the Hardware Users Guide.
Additional LED Descriptions. For complete descriptions of OmniSwitch 6600 Family LED states, see page
67.

Your First Login Session
Once the switch or stack has successfully booted and you have
accessed your computer’s terminal emulation software via the
console port, you are ready to log in to the switch’s Command
Line Interface (CLI) and configure basic information.
Note. You must be connected to the switch via the console
port before initiating your first login session.
Logging In to the Switch
Important. If you are using OmniSwitch 6600 Family
switches in a stacked configuration, you must be
connected to the console port of the stack’s primary
switch. For detailed information on primary switch status,
refer to the Hardware Users Guide.
When you first log in to the switch, you will be prompted for a
login (i.e., user) name and password. During this first login
session, only one user name option and one password option is
available:
• Login (i.e., user name)—admin
In order to complete the setup process for the switch or stack,
you should complete the following steps during your first
login session:
• Password—switch
To log in to the switch, enter admin at the login prompt:
• Log in to the switch
login: admin
• Unlock session types
• Change the login password
• Set the date and time
Next, enter the factory default password, switch, at the

Assigning an IP Address to the
Switch or Stack
Assigning an IP address to your OmniSwitch 6600 Family
switch or stack is an important step in the setup process.
Remote sessions such as Telnet, FTP, and WebView require
an IP address. The IP address for these session types serves as
a destination point for the remote session. Therefore, before
the switch can support any remote login sessions, a valid IP
address must be configured.
To assign an IP address to a switch, simply assign an IP
address to the switch’s default VLAN 1 by entering the
ip interface command at the CLI prompt. Be sure that the
command begins with the command syntax
ip interface
exactly as shown, followed by the the interface name, address,
the IP address, vlan, and the VLAN number. For example:
-> ip interface vlan-1 address 172.22.120.1

the same assigned IP address. This way, if a failover should
occur (i.e., another switch in the stack assumes the primary
management role), users can still log in to the stack via remote
login sessions such as Telnet, FTP, and WebView.
The IP assigned to the stack’s primary switch is dynamically
assigned to all other switches in the stack whenever either of
the following actions occurs:
• The entire stack is rebooted
• The copy flash-synchro command is entered at the CLI
prompt on the stack’s primary switch
You are not required to manually assign the IP address to each
switch in the stack.
Avoiding Duplicate IP Addresses in the Network.
If any stacking cable (other than the optional redundant
stacking cable) is disconnected while the stack is in operation, a duplicate IP addresses will exist on the network.
Therefore, if a switch is to be pulled from a stack, it is
recommended that the switch is given a unique IP address
via the (ip interface command) before being
disconnected.

Your First Login Session
Unlocking Session Types
Security is a key feature on OmniSwitch 6600 Family
switches. As a result, when you access the switch for the first
time, you must use a direct console port connection. All other
session types (Telnet, FTP, WebView, SNMP, etc.) are
“locked out” until they are manually unlocked by the user.
The CLI command used to unlock session types is
aaa authentication.
Note. When you unlock session types, you are granting
switch access to non-local sessions (e.g., Telnet). As a
result, users who know the correct user login and password will have remote access to the switch. For more
information on switch security, refer to the “Managing
Switch User Accounts” chapter of your OmniSwitch 6600
Family Switch Management Guide.
Unlocking All Session Types
To unlock all session types, enter the following command
syntax at the CLI prompt:
-> aaa authentication default local

Unlocking Specified Session Types
Changing the Login Password
You can also unlock session types on a one-by-one basis. For
example, to unlock Telnet sessions only, enter the following
command:
Change the login password for admin user sessions by following the steps below:
1 Be sure that you have logged into the switch as user
-> aaa authentication telnet local
To unlock WebView (HTTP) sessions only, enter the following command:
type admin (see “Logging In to the Switch” on page 32).
2 Enter the keyword password and press Enter.
3 Enter your new password at the prompt (refer to the
-> aaa authentication http local
You cannot specify more than one session type in a single
command line. However, you can still unlock multiple session
types by using the aaa authentication command in succession. For example:
-> aaa authentication http local
-> aaa authentication telnet local
-> aaa authentication ftp local
note below).
Note. Typically, the password should be a string of nonrepeating characters. The switch’s authentication software
uses the first occurrence of the character Family to
uniquely identify the password. For example, the password engrengr is the same as engr. A better password
might be engr2735.
How many sessions are allowed?
4 You will be prompted to re-enter the password. Enter
Once a session type has been unlocked, the following number
of sessions is allowed for each type:
the password a second time.
Telnet sessions allowed
4 concurrent sessions
FTP sessions allowed
4 concurrent sessions
HTTP (Web browser) sessions allowed
4 concurrent sessions
Total sessions (Telnet, FTP,
HTTP, console)
13 concurrent sessions
SNMP sessions allowed
50 concurrent sessions
March 2005
Note. Be sure to remember or securely record all new
passwords; overriding configured passwords on
OmniSwitch 6600 Family switches is restricted.
New password settings are automatically saved in real time to
the local user database; the user is not required to enter an
additional command in order to save the password information. Also note that new password information is retained
following a reboot.
Your First Login Session
35
All subsequent login sessions—including those through the
console port—will require the new password in order to access
the switch.
User Accounts. The switch allows a maximum of 50 user
accounts in the local user database. For information on
creating additional user types and assigning individual
passwords, refer to the “Managing Switch User Accounts”
chapter of your Switch Management Guide.
Setting the Date and Time
Set the current time for the switch by entering system time,
followed by the current time in hh:mm:ss. For example:
-> system time 18:35:00
The switch uses a 24-hour clock; the time value shown in the
above example would set the time to 6:35 PM.
To set the current date for the switch, enter system date,
followed by the current date in mm/dd/yyyy. For example:
Setting the System Time Zone
-> system date 06/27/2002
The switch’s default time zone is UTC (also referred to as
Greenwich Mean Time).
If you require a time zone that is specific to your region—or if
you need to enable Daylight Savings Time (DST) on the
switch—you can configure these settings via the system timezone and system daylight savings time commands. For example, to set the system clock to run on Pacific standard time,
enter the following command.
-> system timezone pst
To enable Daylight Savings time, enter the following
command.
-> system daylight savings time enable
Many other time zone variables are supported. For detailed
information on configuring a time zone for the switch, refer to
your OmniSwitch 6600 Family Switch Management Guide.

Setting Optional System
Information
This section provides information on configuring optional
system parameters, including:
• the switch’s administrative contact
• a system name
Specifying a System Name
The system name is a simple, user-defined text description for
the switch.
To specify a system name, enter system name, followed by a
text description of up to 19 characters.
Note. You cannot include spaces between words when
entering a system name.
• the switch’s physical location
For example:
Specifying an Administrative Contact
An administrative contact is the person or department in
charge of the switch. If a contact is specified, users can easily
find the appropriate network administrator if they have questions or comments about the switch.
To specify an administrative contact, enter system contact,
followed by a text string of up to 254 characters. If you
include spaces between words in the text string, be sure to
enclose the string in quotes ("").
For example:
-> system contact "JSmith [email protected]"
-> system name EngSwitch3
Specifying the Switch’s Location
It is recommended that you use a physical labeling system for
locating and identifying your switch(es). Examples include
placing a sticker or placard with a unique identifier (e.g., the
switch’s default IP address) on each chassis.
However, if no labeling system has been implemented or if
you need to determine a switch’s location from a remote site,
entering a system location can be very useful.
To specify a system location, enter system location, followed
by a text description of up to 254 characters. If you include
spaces between words in the text string, be sure to enclose the
string in quotes ("").
For example:
-> system location "NMS Lab--NE Rack"

Viewing Your Changes
To view your current changes, enter show system at the CLI
prompt.
Saving Your Changes
Modifying the Serial Connection
Settings
The switch’s serial connection defaults are listed on page 22.
If you wish to modify the default serial connection settings
(i.e., baud rate, parity, data bits, and stop bits), refer to the
following steps.
Once you have configured this basic switch information, save
your changes by entering write memory at the CLI command
prompt.
Note. You must be connected to the switch via the console
port before attempting to change serial connection
settings. Otherwise, an error message will display.
When the write memory command is entered, changes are
automatically saved to the main configuration file (boot.cfg)
and placed in the /flash/working directory. For more information on the boot.cfg file, refer to page 48.
For switches in a stacked configuration, all changes must
be configured before the switches are cabled together. In
other words, you must configure these settings when each
switch is operating as a stand-alone unit.
Note. If the switch reboots following a write memory
command entry, the switch will run from the
/flash/certified directory. As a result, subsequent configuration changes cannot be saved using the write memory
command until the switch is once again running from the
/flash/working directory. See page 51 for important information on these directories.

CLI Basics
The Command Line Interface (CLI) allows you to configure
and monitor your switch by entering single-line commands.
The CLI can be accessed through terminal or Telnet sessions.
Note. Configuring the switch using the CLI is also
referred to as “online configuration.”
The following section provides basic information on CLI
assistance features. For detailed information on the CLI,
including syntax conventions, usage rules, command documentation, and a quick reference card, refer to the OmniSwitch
CLI Reference Guide and the “Using the CLI” chapter in the
OmniSwitch 6600 Family Switch Management Guide.
CLI Assistance Features
Note. The software supports vt100 terminal emulation;
CLI assistance features may be limited if your terminal
emulation software is using a setting other than vt100.
Syntax Checking
If you make a mistake while entering command syntax, the
CLI provides clues about how to correct the error. Whenever a
command error is entered, two indicators are displayed:
• An Error message describing the type of error.
• A carat (^) character indicating where the error
occurred.
For example, the syntax
-> show vlan router port mac status
The CLI provides built-in features that assist you while entering commands. These features include:
• Syntax checking
• Command line help
• Partial keyword completion
• Deleting and inserting characters
• Previous command recall
• Prefix recognition
• Prefix prompt
• Command history
March 2005
results in the following error:
-> show vlan router port mac status
^
ERROR: Invalid entry: "port"
Because port is not valid syntax for the command, the error
message shows it as an invalid entry and the carat indicates
where the problem has occurred. For this example, the valid
command syntax is
-> show vlan router mac status
CLI Basics
41
Command Line (?) Help
Partial Keyword Completion
The CLI provides additional help in the form of the question
mark (?) character. The ? character provides information that
helps you build your command syntax. For example, if you
enter
The CLI has a partial keyword recognition feature. Instead of
typing an entire keyword, you can type only the minimum
number of characters needed to uniquely identify the keyword,
then press the Tab key. The CLI will complete the keyword
and place the cursor at the end of the command line.
-> show vlan router
at the command line and are unsure of the next keyword, you
can enter the ? character for additional options (be sure to
include a space between the last keyword and the ? character):
-> show vlan router ?
^
MAC IP
(Vlan Manager Command Set)
The carat character (^) indicates the point where you invoked
the command line help. Possible keyword options, along with
the corresponding command set, are displayed. Here, you can
continue building the command by entering either mac or ip.
Some command completion options may indicate user-defined
information. For example: <string>, <slot/port>,
<hh:mm:ss>, etc. The option <cr> indicates that the
command can be completed by pressing Enter.
If you do not enter enough characters to uniquely identify the
keyword, pressing the Tab key will have no effect.
If you enter characters that do not belong to an applicable
keyword, pressing the Tab key will remove the characters and
place the cursor back to its previous position.
Deleting Characters
You can delete CLI command characters by using the Backspace key or the Delete key. The Backspace key deletes each
character in the line, one at a time, from right to left.
To change incorrect syntax with the Delete key, use the Left
Arrow key to move the cursor to the left of the character to be
deleted, then use the Delete key to remove characters to the
right of the cursor.
Note. The ? character can be entered at any time. In addition, you can type the ? character alone at the CLI prompt
to display root keywords for all command sets.
42
CLI Basics
March 2005
Inserting Characters
Prefix Recognition
To insert a character between characters that are already typed,
use the Left and Right Arrow keys to place the cursor into
position, then type the new character. Once the syntax is
correct, execute the command by pressing Enter. In the
following example, the user enters the wrong syntax to execute
a command. The result is an error message.
Prefix recognition is a CLI feature that reduces redundant
command line entry by storing commonly-used prefix information for certain commands. The CLI assumes this stored
prefix information when the next command is entered. For
example, if you enter
-> vlan 32
-> show micrcode
^
ERROR: Invalid entry: "micrcode"
To correct the syntax without retyping the entire command
line, use the !! command to recall the previous syntax. Then,
use the Left Arrow key to position the cursor between the “r”
and the “c” characters. To insert the missing character for this
example, type “o” as shown:
-> !!
-> show microcode
Previous Command Recall
at the command line, the CLI will store the vlan 32 prefix
information.
The following command families support prefix recognition:
• AAA
• Interface
• Link Aggregation
• Quality of Service (QoS)
• Spanning Tree
To recall the last command executed by the switch, press the
Up Arrow key at the prompt and the previous command will
display on your screen. You can execute the command again
by pressing Enter, or you can edit it first by deleting or inserting characters.
March 2005
• VLAN Management
CLI Basics
43
Prefix Prompt
You can set the CLI to display the current command prefix as
the command prompt by entering the following command:
-> prompt prefix
After entering this command, your command prompt will
include current stored prefix information until a new prompt is
specified. For example, the following is a prompt for a user
who has begun configuring VLAN 32:
-> vlan 32
To set the prompt back to the default arrow ( -> ), enter the
following syntax, exactly as shown, at the prefix prompt:
Note that the most recent commands are displayed lower in the
list. For this reason, the show history command will always be
listed last.
You can recall commands from the history list by entering an
exclamation point ( ! ). For example:
-> !4
-> show temperature
The CLI prints the fourth command from the history list (in
this case, show temperature) at the CLI prompt.
You can also recall the last command in the history list by
entering two exclamation points ( !! ). For example:
prompt string ->
Command History
You can view a list of up to 30 of the most recently executed
commands via the show history command. For example:
-> show history

-> show history
To specify the number of commands displayed in the history
list (1 - 30), use the history size command. For example:

To view the current history list settings, use the show history
parameters command. For example:
-> show history parameters
History size: 30
CurrentSize: 10
Index Range: 1-10
March 2005
Command Logging
OmniSwitch 6600 Family switches provide command logging.
This feature allows users to record up to 100 of the most recent
commands entered via Telnet and console sessions. In addition to a list of commands entered, the results of each
command entry are recorded. Results include information such
as whether a command was executed successfully, or whether
a syntax or configuration error occurred.
Note. The command history feature differs from the
command logging feature in that command history buffers up to 30 of the most recent commands. The command
information is not written to a separate log file. Also, the
command history feature includes only general keyword
syntax (i.e., it does not record full syntax, date and time,
session IP address, and entry results). For more information on command history, refer to page 44.
When command logging is enabled via the command-log
enable syntax, a file called command.log is automatically
created in the switch’s /flash directory. Once enabled, configuration commands entered on the command line will be
recorded to this file until command logging is disabled.
The command.log file has a 66402 byte capacity. This capacity allows up to 100 of the most recent commands to be
recorded. Because all CLI command logging information is
archived to the command.log file, command history information will be lost if the file is deleted.
Note. The command.log file cannot be deleted while the
command logging feature is enabled. Before attempting to
remove the file, be sure to disable command logging.
For detailed information on command logging, refer to the
OmniSwitch 6600 Family Switch Management Guide.
Refer to the sections below for more information on configuring and using CLI command logging. For detailed information
related to command logging commands, refer to the
OmniSwitch CLI Reference Guide.
Enabling Command Logging
By default, command logging is disabled. To enable command
logging on the switch, enter the following command:

Offline Configuring
Scheduling a Configuration File to be Applied
at a Later Time
You can configure OmniSwitch 6600 Family switches using
an ASCII-based text file. This is referred to as offline configuring. With offline configuring, CLI commands may be typed
into a text document (referred to as a text-based configuration
file) and then uploaded and applied to the switch.
You can apply a file to the switch immediately. You can also
schedule a file to be applied either at a specific date and time,
or after a specific amount of time has passed. Timer sessions
can greatly facilitate maintenance tasks, such as synchronized
batch updates.
An ASCII-based configuration file can be viewed or edited at
any time using a standard text editor (e.g., WordPad). The
switch also offers its own text editing buffer, so a file can be
edited in the flash file directory without having to be downloaded to a workstation.
Because they are portable, stand-alone documents, configuration files allow users to easily clone switch configurations.
Moreover, the ability to store a broad range of network information in a single text file facilitates troubleshooting, testing,
and overall network readability.
Syntax Checking
Offline configuration includes a syntax check feature. This
function will report syntax errors or typos that might cause a
command to be rejected by the switch when a configuration
file is applied.
March 2005
Generating Snapshots of the
Current Configuration
A generated snapshot captures the switch’s current configuration settings in a single text file. Captured configuration
settings can then be viewed or edited offline at any time. Troubleshooting is greatly facilitated, as aggregate network information can be read at a glance.
Snapshot files can be used as configuration files for a single
switch or for multiple switches. This allows easy cloning of
switch configurations for networks requiring multiple, similarly-configured switches. Simply place the snapshot file in the
appropriate directory of the switch(es) you want to configure
and use the CLI to apply the file.
For detailed information on offline configuring and the
features described above, refer to the OmniSwitch 6600 Family
Switch Management Guide.

Files and Directories
Boot and Image Files
Although the flash memory on OmniSwitch 6600 Family
switches can contain many file types (e.g., log and snapshot
files), there are four specific file types that provide key switch
and network functions. These files include the boot.cfg file,
boot.params file, boot.slot.cfg file, and image (.img) files.
boot.params File
The boot.params file provides IP address, gateway, and mask
information for the switch. This information is required for
Ethernet connections to the switch.
This file also contains default console port parameters (baud
rate, etc.) and can be modified via the modify boot
parameters CLI command.
In order to be read by the switch, the boot.params file must be
placed in the /flash directory. If the file is deleted for any
reason, a new boot.params file will be automatically generated on the next system boot. However, all user-configured
information, such as IP address, gateway, and mask information, will be lost. Therefore, it is recommended that you keep a
backup copy of this file at all times.
48
Files and Directories
boot.cfg File
The boot.cfg file stores your network configuration parameters. When you first boot the switch, no boot.cfg file is
present. This file is automatically generated when you first
issue a write memory command to save your configuration
changes. The file is then automatically placed in the
/flash/working directory.
Important. Your switch must be running from the
/flash/working directory in order to save changes to the
boot.cfg file. Refer to “Working and Certified Directories” on page 51 for more information.
Once the configuration parameters stored in the boot.cfg file
are considered tested and reliable, the file can be copied to the
/flash/certified directory and become part of the “last known
good” software for the switch.
If all copies of this file are deleted and a system boot occurs,
your network configuration will be lost. Therefore, it is recommended that you keep a backup copy of this file at all times.
March 2005
boot.slot.cfg File
The boot.slot.cfg file contains the slot assignment for each
switch installed in a stacked configuration.
The slot assignment number is automatically written to the
boot.slot.cfg whenever a slot number is manually assigned
and the switch is rebooted. The following is a sample
boot.slot.cfg slot entry:
boot slot 3
No software configuration is required. For detailed information on manually assigning slot numbers, refer to page 25.
Image Files
Image files (those files with .img extensions) contain executable code that provides support for the system, Ethernet ports,
and network functions. In other words, they serve as essential
drivers for switch and network operations.
Although these files may be backed up to the root flash directory or any user-defined subdirectory, they must be present in
the /flash/working and /flash/certified directories for the
switch to operate and pass traffic.
If you delete all copies of an image file, you will be required to
contact Alcatel Customer Support for replacements. Therefore, it is recommended that you keep backup copies on your
computer’s hard drive or a locally-accessible server.

Working and Certified
Directories
Alcatel’s OmniSwitch 6600 Family switches are shipped with
32 MB of flash memory. This memory is used to store files,
including boot and image files, that are used for switch operations.
The /flash directory contains two subdirectories: /working and
/certified. These directories work together to provide the
image rollback resiliency feature. Image rollback allows the
switch to return to a prior “last known good” version of software in the event of a system software problem.
Working Directory
Working Directory
Intended for: Files that are being configured
and tested. Once these files are considered
valid and reliable, they can be copied to
the Certified directory.
On reload: If the Working and Certified
directories are identical, the switch will
automatically run from software in this
directory. If the two directories are not
identical, you can instruct the switch to run
from the Working directory by issuing the
reload working command.
Saving changes: You can save configuration changes to the Working directory
via the write memory command.
configuring your switch are saved to the boot.cfg file in the
/flash/working directory.
Once the /flash/working directory’s configuration and image
files are road-tested and considered valid and reliable for your
network, they can be copied to the /flash/certified directory.
Certified Directory
Certified Directory
Intended for: Reliable, Tested configuration
and image files. The switch will roll back
to this software in the event of a system
software error.
On reload: By default, the switch will use
the software in this directory if there are
any differences between the Working and
Certified directories.
Saving changes: You cannot save configuration changes to the Certified directory.
To save your changes, be sure that your
switch is operating from the Working
directory.
The software in the /flash/certified directory should be treated
as the “gold master” for the switch. When you place configuration and image files in this directory, you are “certifying”
them as tested and reliable. If the switch is running from the
/flash/working directory and experiences a software problem,
it will “roll back” to the last known good software in the
/flash/certified directory on the next reboot.
The /flash/working directory is intended for software that is
still being configured for your network. Changes made while

How can I tell which directory the switch
is currently using?
When you first boot the switch, the /flash/working directory is
used; this allows you to save your initial configuration changes
to the boot.cfg file. However, subsequent boots may result in
your switch running from the /flash/certified directory. Therefore, verifying the current running directory is a key step any
time you are configuring or monitoring the switch.
View the switch’s current running directory by entering the
show running-directory command. For example:

changes must be saved to the boot.cfg file in the
/flash/working directory. Once those changes have been roadtested, the contents of the /flash/working directory can be
copied to the /flash/certified directory via the copy working
certified command.
What happens when the switch boots?
During the boot process, the switch compares the contents of
the /flash/working and /flash/certified directories. Based on
this comparison, the switch determines which directory to use
as its running software.
Working and Certified Are Identical
PRIMARY,
DUAL CMMs,

If the software in the /flash/working and /flash/certified
directories are completely identical, the switch considers the
software in both directories to be equally reliable. In this case,
the switch will run from the /flash/working directory.

Loading Software
The following section describes the procedure for loading new
release software to your switch. Note that the procedure varies
slightly for stand-alone and stacked OmniSwitch 6600 Family
configurations. Follow the steps that apply to your system.
3 Using your FTP client or the CLI’s rm command,
delete all .img files from the /flash/working directory.
You can use the asterisk (*) wildcard to delete all .img
files at once. For example:
-> rm working/*.img
Note. For more detailed information on loading software
and working with directories in both stand-alone and
stacked configurations, refer to the “Managing CMM
Directory Content” chapter in the OmniSwitch 6600
Family Switch Management Guide.

stack, then access the /flash/working directory.
To do this, enter
-> reload working no rollback-timeout
at the CLI prompt.
Note. This reload process will take a few moments to
complete.
Following the reload, the switch will come up running from
the /flash/working directory (i.e., the new release software)
until the next system reboot. Meanwhile, the software in the
/flash/certified directory remains unchanged and available as
a last known good version if an error should occur with the
new software.
Once the release software is considered valid and reliable with
your network configuration, the contents of the
/flash/working directory can be copied to the
/flash/certified directory via the copy working certified
command.
March 2005
Note. Before attempting to establish an FTP session, be
sure that you have first unlocked the FTP session type via
the aaa authentication command. Otherwise, an FTP
login error will occur. See “Unlocking Session Types” on
page 34 for more information.
4 Using your FTP client or the CLI’s rm command,
delete all .img files from the /flash/working directory on
the stack’s primary switch. (To determine whether you are
logged into the primary switch, use the show runningdirectory command.) You can use the asterisk (*) wildcard to delete all .img files at once. For example:
-> rm working/*.img
Note. Do not delete the boot.cfg file. Otherwise, any
configuration changes you have saved will be lost. Also,
do not delete the boot.slot.cfg file or files from the
/flash/certified directory.
Loading Software

5 Using your FTP client, upload all required .img files
from the new software release to the primary switch’s
/flash/working directory.
6 Use the install command after the software files have
been transferred to the switch via FTP. For example:
-> install /flash/working/*.img
Note. For more information on the install command, refer
to the OmniSwitch 6600 Family Switch Management
Guide or the OmniSwitch CLI Reference Guide.
7 Reload the switch from the /flash/working directory.
To do this, enter
-> reload working no rollback-timeout
Certifying Your New Software
After the newly-loaded software is considered tested and reliable, it is important that you certify the new software by copying it to the /flash/certified directory.
It is also important that you synchronize the contents of the
/flash/working and /flash/certified directories on all switches
in the stack with the newer contents of the /flash/certified and
/flash/working directories on the primary switch.
Otherwise, your new software—along with any configuration
changes you have made—will be lost if a reboot or failover
occurs.
To certify and synchronize all new software in the stack, enter
the following command:
-> copy working certified flash-synchro
at the CLI prompt.
Note. This reload process will take a few moments to
complete.
During this reload, software from the primary switch is distributed to all switches in the stacked configuration. By synchronizing the system software, the primary switch ensures
effective redundancy throughout the stack.

Hardware and Software Status LEDs
OK1. Hardware Status. Displays solid green
when powered on and the switch has passed
hardware diagnostic tests. Displays solid
amber when powered on and the switch has
failed hardware diagnostic tests.
Power Supply LEDs
PS1. Displays solid green when the primary
(i.e., factory-installed) power supply status
is OK and the power supply is operating
normally. Displays solid amber in the
unlikely event of a power supply failure.
OK2. Software Status. Blinks green when the
switch’s system management software is
operational. Displays solid amber when a system software failure occurs. Blinks amber
when the software is in a transitional state
(e.g., when software is being downloaded to
the switch).
PS2. Displays solid green when the optional
redundant power supply status is OK and
the power supply is operating normally.
Displays solid amber if no redundant power
supply is installed or in the unlikely event
of a redundant power supply failure.
