Stand-Alone and Stacked Configurations
OmniSwitch 6600 Series
Stand-Alone and Stacked Configurations
Stand-Alone
A stand-alone OmniSwitch 6600 series switch is ideal for small and medium-sized network edge applications, offering 24 or 48 10/100 ports, respectively. These switches provide support for enterprise-based
devices, such as computer workstations or IP telephones.
A single OmniSwitch 6600 series switch also supports two Gigabit Ethernet uplinks for high-bandwidth
connections to a backbone or server.
Stacked Configurations
In addition to working as individual, stand-alone switches, OmniSwitch 6600 series switches can also be
linked together to form a single, high-density virtual chassis known as a stack.
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 ports are
added for each OS6600-U24 brought into the stack; forty-eight 10/100 ports are added for each OS6648.
Up to eight switches can be stacked. OmniSwitch 6600 series 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 detailed information on stacking OmniSwitch 6600 series switches into a virtual chassis, refer to
Chapter 3, “Managing OmniSwitch 6600 Series Stacks.”
Note on Terminology. In the user manuals provided with your switch, the terms switch, slot and NI
(Network Interface) refer to individual OmniSwitch 6600 series units in standalone mode or within a
stacked configuration. The term CMM (Chassis Management Module) refers to stacked OmniSwitch 6600
series units operating in primary or secondary CMM roles. (An OmniSwitch 6600 series switch operating
in an idle CMM role would normally be referred to as a switch, slot, or, NI.)

OmniSwitch 6600 Series
Availability Features
Availability Features
The switch 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 unlikely event of a subsystem failure. 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 day-to-day network operations.
Hardware-related Availability features include:
• Smart Continuous Switching
• Software Rollback
• Hot Swapping
• Hardware Monitoring
Smart Continuous Switching
In stacked configurations, one OmniSwitch 6600 series switch is designated as the primary “management
module” for the stack. Because the stack can be thought of as a virtual chassis, the role of this primary
management switch is to monitor and manage the functions of the stack.
Similar to chassis-based switches such as the OmniSwitch 7700 and Omniswitch 7800, the stack also
allows users to assign an additional switch as a secondary management module. As with the OS7700 and
OS7800, the stack’s secondary switch immediately takes over management functions in the event of a
primary switch failure.
All other switches in the stack are considered idle, and act very much like Ethernet Network Interface
(ENI) modules in OS7700 and OS7800 switches, in that they provide Ethernet ports for 10/100 traffic.
The stack provides support for all idle switches during primary-to-secondary failover. In other words, if
the stack’s primary switch fails or goes offline for any reason, all idle switches will continue data transmission during the secondary switch’s takeover process. This Availability feature is referred to as Smart
Continuous Switching.
Incoming Layer 2 packets will continue to be sent to the appropriate egress port during failover. Spanning
Tree will continue handling BPDUs received on the switch ports, as well as port link up and down states.
The Spanning Tree topology will not be disrupted.
Note. Smart Continuous Switching is designed to maintain data flow only during primary/secondary
switch failover and is not intended to support long-term data flow. If both the primary and secondary
switches in the stack go offline, switch operations (including all 10/100 support) will be disabled.
For more information on primary, secondary, and idle switches, as well as the failover process, refer to
Chapter 3, “Managing OmniSwitch 6600 Series Stacks.”

Availability Features
OmniSwitch 6600 Series
Software Rollback
Software rollback (also referred to as image rollback) essentially allows the OmniSwitch 6600 series
switches (in both standalone and stacked configurations) to return to a prior “last known good” version of
software in the event of a system software problem. The switch controls software rollback through its
resilient directory structure design (i.e., /flash/working and /flash/certified).
For detailed information on the software rollback feature, as well as the switch’s /flash/working and
/flash/certified directories, refer to the “Managing CMM Directory Content” chapter in the OmniSwitch
6600 Series Switch Management Guide.
Hot Swapping
Hot swapping refers to the action of adding, removing, or replacing back up power supplies, as well as
uplink modules and MiniGBICs, without powering off your switch and disrupting other components in the
switch or stack. This feature greatly facilitates hardware upgrades and maintenance and also allows you to
easily replace components in the unlikely event of hardware failure. The following hardware components
can be hot swapped:
• OS66BPS-100A Back Up Power Supply
• OS6600-GNI-C2 Gigabit Ethernet Uplink Submodule
• OS6600-GNI-U2 Gigabit Ethernet Uplink Submodule
• MiniGBICs installed in the OS6600-GNI-U2 Gigabit Ethernet Uplink Submodule; MiniGBICs include:
- MiniGBIC-SX
- MiniGBIC-LX
- MiniGBIC-LH-70
Note. Stacking modules cannot be hot swapped at any time. For information on stacking modules, refer to
For instructions on hot swapping back up power supplies, uplink modules, and MiniGBICs, refer to
Chapter 2, “OmniSwitch 6600 Series Chassis and Hardware Components.”
Hardware Monitoring
Automatic Monitoring
Automatic monitoring refers to the switch’s built-in sensors that automatically monitor operations. If an
error is detected (e.g., over-threshold temperature), the switch immediately sends a trap to the user. The
trap is displayed on the console in the form of a text error message. (In the case of an over-threshold
temperature condition, the chassis displays an amber TEMP LED in addition to sending a trap.)
LEDs
LEDs, which provide visual status information, are provided on the chassis front panel. LEDs are used to
indicate conditions such as hardware and software status, temperature errors, link integrity, data flow, etc.
For detailed LED descriptions, refer to Chapter 2, “OmniSwitch 6600 Series Chassis and Hardware
Components.”

the current status of hardware components. The user enters “show” commands that output information to
the console. Monitoring information for chassis components such as the optional back up power supply,
chassis temperature sensor, and chassis fans is provided in Chapter 2, “OmniSwitch 6600 Series Chassis
and Hardware Components.” Show commands for all features are described in detail in the OmniSwitch
CLI Reference Guide.

Application Examples
The following application examples show two of the many ways OmniSwitch 6600 series switches can be
used in an enterprise network setting.
Single Office Building with 1000 Users
The following diagram shows converged voice and data applications, with 1000 users, in a single building
enterprise environment. Edge devices consist of a mixture of PCs and IP telephones. In this example, a
single OmniPCX 4400 in the core supports IP voice initiations and terminations. An OmniSwitch 7800
switch provides a port density of 1000 10/100 ports. The stackable OmniSwitch 6600 series configurations provide redundant and dual connectivity from the edge to the redundant backbone/core, in which the
OmniSwitch 7800 core switches are used.

Mounting the Switch
OmniSwitch 6600 Series Chassis and Hardware Components
Installation Options
There are two ways in which the OmniSwitch 6600 series switches can be installed:
• Tabletop installation
• Rack-mount installation
Installing the Switch on a Tabletop or Bench
OmniSwitch 6600 series switches can be installed freestanding as tabletop units. Place your switch in a
stable, flat, static-free surface.
Note. OmniSwitch 6600 series switches must be placed “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.
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 2-13. Also, be sure that you have placed
the chassis within reach of all required AC power sources.
3 If you are placing multiple switches in a stacked configuration, carefully stack the remaining switches,
one on top or 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. Also, be sure that you
have placed all switches in the stack within reach of required AC power sources.
Rack-Mounting the Switch
Refer to the important guidelines below before installing the OmniSwitch chassis in a rack.
• It is recommended that two people install the switch in the rack—one person to hold the chassis and
position it in the rack, and a second person to secure the chassis to the rack using attachment screws
(not supplied).
• Alcatel provides two rack-mount flanges with each OmniSwitch 6600 series switch. These flanges
support standard 19-inch rack mount installations. These flanges must be attached to the chassis before
the switch can be rack mounted.
Note. If you are installing the switch in a 23-inch wide rack, Alcatel offers optional 23-inch rack-mounting hardware. For more information, contact your Alcatel representative.
• Alcatel does not provide rack-mount screws. Use the screws supplied by the rack vendor.
• To prevent a rack from becoming top heavy, it is recommended that you install heavier equipment at
the bottom of the rack whenever possible.
• If you are installing the switch in a relay rack, be sure to install and secure the rack per the rack manufacturer’s specifications.
• Review page 2-13 for important chassis airflow and access recommendations before installing.

Note. If you are installing multiple switches in a rack to form a stacked configuration, refer to the “Rack
Mounting Stacked Configurations” section below.
Rack Mounting Stacked Configurations
If you are rack mounting multiple switches in a stacked configuration, be sure to place all switches in
vertically-adjacent rack positions. This will ensure that all required stacking cables will have adequate
length for the installation. For additional instructions on rack mounting a stacked configuration, follow the
steps below:
1 Install the rack mount flanges for all switches that are to be included in the stacked configuration, as
described on page 2-15. Up to eight switches may be stacked to form a single virtual chassis.
2 Place the next switch in the stack directly on top of the previously installed switch.
3 Align the holes in the flanges with the holes in the rack’s vertical posts.
4 Once the holes are aligned, insert a rack mount screw through the bottom hole of each flange. Tighten
both screws until they are secure.
5 Repeat steps 1 through 4 above for all remaining switches.

Power Supply Redundancy
After a back up power supply is installed, the primary (factory-installed) power supply continues to take
on the full power load for switch operations. Meanwhile, the back up power supply operates in active
standby mode. If the primary power supply fails unexpectedly, the back up power supply automatically
takes up the full power load without disrupting the switch.

Redundant AC Circuit Recommendation
When a back up power supply is installed, it is recommended that the AC source connected to the back up
power supply resides on a separate circuit from the primary power supply. With redundant AC, if a single
circuit fails, the switch’s back up power supply (on a separate circuit) will likely be unaffected and the
switch can continue operating.
Note. The switch must have a back up power supply installed for the redundant AC circuit recommendation to be applicable.

OmniSwitch 6600 Series Chassis and Hardware Components
Installing a Back Up Power Supply
You can add a back up power supply to the chassis at any time without disturbing the switch’s network
functions. You are not required to power down the switch.
Hot Swapping
Hot swapping a back up power supply refers to the action of replacing the unit while the switch is operating. Again, because it is a back up (i.e., redundant component), you are not required to power off the
switch’s primary power source.
To add the optional back up power supply to the chassis, follow the steps below:
Anti-Static Warning. Before handling any components, free yourself of static by wearing a grounding
strap, or by grounding yourself properly. Static discharge can damage the switch and the back up power
supply.
1 Locate the back up power supply bay. The back up power supply bay is located at the switch’s rear
panel. Refer to page 2-12 for a view of the chassis rear panel.
2 If there is a blank cover panel installed at the back up power supply bay, uninstall it by removing the
two Phillips attachment screws. After the attachment screws have been removed, carefully pry the blank
cover panel out and away from the chassis. Set the cover panel and attachment screws aside.
3 To avoid attempting to install the back up power supply upside down, orient the unit as shown in the
diagram below.

Back Up Power Supply
Blank Cover Panel Requirement
If you are not replacing the back up power supply being removed, be sure to install a blank cover panel
(supplied with your switch) over the empty power supply bay. To install a blank cover panel, follow the
steps below.
1 Place the blank cover panel over the empty power supply bay and insert two Phillips screws (also
supplied with the switch) through the panel and into the threaded holes in the chassis.
2 Once the screws are inserted, fasten the panel to the chassis by tightening the screws. Be sure not to
overtighten the screws.
Viewing Primary and Back Up Power Supply Status
The switch constantly monitors primary and back up power supply operation. If either power supply unexpectedly shuts down, the switch sends out a trap to the user and the PS1 and/or PS2 LEDs on the chassis
front panel turn amber.
Note. For detailed LED information, including the PS1 and PS2 LEDs, refer to “Status LEDs” on
page 2-11.
To check the number of power supplies currently operating, and the status of each power supply, use the
show power command. For example:
-> show power
Power Supplies in chassis 8
PS
Operational Status
-----+------------------PS-1
UP
PS-2
NOT PRESENT
The primary (i.e., factory-installed) power supply is listed as PS-1 in the show power command output.
The back up power supply is listed as PS-2. In the example above, there is no back up power supply
installed in the chassis.
Note. For information on viewing primary and back up power supply status in a stacked configuration,
refer to page 2-24.

Installing Uplink and Stacking Modules
Before installing uplink or stacking modules, refer to the important guidelines listed below:
• Stacking modules can only be installed in the far-right module slot. This slot is labeled EXPANSION/
STACKING and contains port positions 27 and 28 (OS6624/6600-U24) or 51 and 52 (OS6648).
• Do not attempt to install stacking modules at the EXPANSION slot at port positions 25 and 26
(OS6624/OS6600-U24) or 49 and 50 (OS6648).
• OS6600-GNI-U2 and OS6600-GNI-C2 uplink modules can be installed in either slot location.
However, if you install a Gigabit Ethernet uplink module in the EXPANSION/STACKING slot, the
switch must be used as a stand-alone unit.
• Port numbers are clearly marked on the OS6624, OS6600-U24, and OS6648 chassis front panels.
• Stacking modules cannot be hot swapped at any time.
Anti-Static Warning. Before handling any components, free yourself of static by wearing a grounding
strap, or by grounding yourself properly. Static discharge can damage the switch and the uplink or stacking module.
1 If there is a blank cover panel installed over the uplink or stacking module slot position, uninstall it by
removing the two Phillips attachment screws. After the attachment screws have been removed, carefully
pry the blank cover panel out and away from the chassis. Set the cover panel and attachment screws aside.
2 Holding the uplink or stacking module by the front panel, carefully slide the circuit board into the card
guide located in the chassis slot.

Temperature Management
OmniSwitch 6600 Series Chassis and Hardware Components
Temperature Management
The operating temperature of your switch is an important factor in its overall health. In order to avoid a
temperature-related system failure, your switch must always run at an operating temperature between
0 and 45 degrees Celsius (32 to 113 degrees Fahrenheit).
To avoid chassis over-temperature conditions, follow these important guidelines:
1 Be sure that your switch is installed in a well-ventilated environment. To ensure adequate airflow,
leave at least two inches of clearance at the left and right sides.
2 If your switch chassis is not fully populated with uplink or stacking modules, be sure that blank cover
panels are installed at empty slot positions at all times. Blank cover panels help regulate airflow and thus
regulate the overall operating temperature in the switch. Refer to page 2-48 for more information.
Viewing Chassis Temperature Status
As with power supply status, the switch constantly monitors the chassis temperature. If a temperature error
has occurred, the switch sends out a trap to the user and the TEMP LED on the chassis front panel displays
amber.
Note. For detailed LED information, including the TEMP LED, refer to “Status LEDs” on page 2-11.
To check the current chassis temperature status, use the show temperature command. For example:
-> show temperature
Temperature for chassis 1
Hardware Board Temperature (deg C)
= 39,
Hardware Cpu Temperature (deg C)
= N/A,
Temperature Upper Threshold Range (deg C) = 30 to 77,
Temperature Upper Threshold (deg C)
= 57,
Temperature Range
= UNDER THRESHOLD,
Temperature Danger Threshold (deg C)
= 77
In the example above, the switch’s current temperature is 39 degrees Celsius. The switch is operating
under the upper temperature threshold, which is 57 degrees Celsius.

Viewing Temperature Status for Stacked Configurations
When entering the show temperature command on the primary switch in a stacked configuration, you
can either enter only the show temperature syntax or you can specify a specific slot number. For more
information, refer to the examples below:
A Slot Number is Specified
If you specify a slot number after the command syntax, chassis temperature information for only the corresponding switch displays. For example:
-> show temperature 3
Temperature for chassis 3
Hardware Board Temperature (deg C)

Temperature Upper Threshold Range (deg C) = 30 to 77,
Temperature Upper Threshold (deg C)
= 57,
Temperature Range
= UNDER THRESHOLD,
Temperature Danger Threshold (deg C)
= 77
The example above shows chassis temperature information for the switch operating in slot position 3 only.
The current temperature is 43 degrees Celsius. The switch is operating under the upper temperature threshold.
No Slot Number is Specified
If you do not enter a slot number, fan status information for all switches in the stack displays.
For example:
-> show temperature
Temperature for chassis 1
Hardware Board Temperature (deg C)
= 40,
Hardware Cpu Temperature (deg C)
= N/A,
Temperature Upper Threshold Range (deg C) = 30 to 77,
Temperature Upper Threshold (deg C)
= 57,
Temperature Range
= UNDER THRESHOLD,
Temperature Danger Threshold (deg C)
= 77
Temperature for chassis 2
Hardware Board Temperature (deg C)
= 31,
Hardware Cpu Temperature (deg C)
= N/A,
Temperature Upper Threshold Range (deg C) = 30 to 77,
Temperature Upper Threshold (deg C)
= 57,
Temperature Range
= UNDER THRESHOLD,
Temperature Danger Threshold (deg C)
= 77
The example above shows chassis temperature information for a stack consisting of two switches. The
current temperature of the switch operating in slot position 1 is 40 degrees Celsius; the current temperature of the switch operating in slot 2 is 31 degrees Celsius. Both switches are operating under the upper
temperature threshold.
More Information on Stacked Configurations. For detailed information on stacked OmniSwitch 6600
series switches, refer to Chapter 3, “Managing OmniSwitch 6600 Series Stacks.”

Temperature Management
OmniSwitch 6600 Series Chassis and Hardware Components
Temperature Errors
The switch monitors the chassis ambient air temperature at all times via an onboard sensor. If an overtemperature condition occurs, there are two different levels of error severity:
• Warning threshold has been exceeded
• Danger threshold has been exceeded
Warning Threshold
If the temperature exceeds the switch’s user-configurable warning threshold, the switch sends out a trap.
Traps are printed to the console in the form of text error messages. The chassis TEMP LED also displays
amber, indicating an error. (Refer to page 2-11 for status LED locations and descriptions.)
When the warning threshold has been exceeded, switch operations remain active. However, it is recommended that immediate steps be taken to address the over-temperature condition.
Addressing warning threshold temperature conditions may include:
• Checking for a chassis air flow obstruction
• Checking the ambient room temperature
• Checking the fan status using the show fan command. See page 2-45 for more information.
• Verifying that the warning threshold has not been manually set to an otherwise common or acceptable
ambient temperature—for example, 31 degrees Centigrade. (The default warning threshold is 57
degrees Celsius. This value may be configured using the temp-threshold command. The current warning threshold may be viewed using the show temperature command.)
Note. Once the ambient air temperature is reduced to below the warning threshold, the switch’s
TEMP LED automatically resets to green.
Danger Threshold
If the chassis ambient air temperature rises above the switch’s danger threshold of 80 degrees Centigrade,
the switch will power off. The danger threshold is factory-set and cannot be configured by the user.
Addressing danger threshold temperature conditions may include:
• Checking for a chassis air flow obstruction
• Checking the ambient room temperature
• Checking the fan status using the show fan command. See page page 2-45 for more information.
Note. When the danger threshold has been exceeded, the switch’s TEMP LED will not reset from amber to
green until after a system boot.

Chassis Airflow
The fans pull air from the air intake vent located at the right-hand side of the chassis. The air is directed
horizontally through the chassis and past the circuit board and uplink and stacking modules (if installed).
Airflow is then exhausted through the fan vents at the left-hand side of the chassis. Refer to the illustrations below for more information.

chassis fans pull air from the
main air intake vent located
at the right-hand side of the

Blank Cover Panels
Blank cover panels are provided with your switch and are used to cover empty uplink and stacking module
slots, as well as empty back up power supply bays (if applicable). These cover panels 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.
If your switch is not fully populated with submodules and a redundant power supply, and blank cover
panels are not installed over empty slot locations, airflow is adversely affected.
When blank cover panels are missing, air does not take the direct route from the air intake vent, through
the chassis, and then out through the fan exhaust vents. Instead, a portion of the airflow is allowed to be
drawn in through the front and rear of the chassis. As a result, normal airflow is disrupted and an extra task
is placed on the fans to cool the chassis.
Cover panels also provide protection for module processor boards and other sensitive internal switch
components by closing off a chassis that is not fully populated.
Because they regulate airflow and help protect internal chassis components, blank cover panels should
remain installed over empty module slots and power supply bays at all times.
Missing Cover Panels.
Missing cover panels affect
airflow by allowing air to be
drawn in through the front
submodule bays or rear
redundant power supply bay.
As a result, the direct route
from the air intake vent to the
fan exhaust vents is disrupted.
For optimal airflow and
chassis component protection, always install blank
cover panels over empty
slots and power supply bays.

Console Port
Serial Connection 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 (refer to the OmniSwitch 6600 Series Getting
Started Guide for more information). By default, this connector (a female DB-9 on OmniSwitch 6624 and
6648 switches and an RJ-45 port on OmniSwitch 6600-U24 switches) provides a DCE console connection.
Serial Connection Default Settings
The factory default settings for the serial connection are as follows:
baud rate
9600
parity
none
data bits (word size)
8
stop bits
1
Modifying the Serial Connection Settings
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.
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. In addition, if you are changing console port
settings for switches in a stack, console port settings must be identical on all switches. Before configuring
the console port settings for a stack, make sure each switch is operating in either primary or secondary
status (you may be required to disconnect switches within the stack before beginning).
1 Enter modify boot parameters at the CLI prompt. The boot prompt displays:
Boot >
2 To change the baud rate, enter boot serialbaudrate, followed by the desired baud rate value. Options
include 1200, 2400, 4800, 9600 (default), 19200, 38400, 57600, 76800, and 115200. For example:
Boot > boot serialbaudrate 19200
Note. Setting the console port to speeds above 9600 baud can cause problems with Zmodem uploads.

7 You can save your changes to the boot.params file by entering commit file at the boot prompt:
Boot > commit file
Note. When the commit file command is used, changes will not be enabled until after the next switch
reboot.
8 You can also save your changes in real time to the switch’s running memory by entering commit
system at the boot prompt:
Boot > commit system
Caution. There are two important things to consider when using the commit system command to save
serial connection changes:
• Output to the terminal may become illegible due to incompatible serial connection settings between the
switch and the terminal emulation software.
• If you use the commit system command only, changes will not be saved to the switch’s boot.params
file and will be lost if the switch is rebooted. To save changes to the boot.params file, refer to step 7.
9 Return to the CLI prompt by entering exit at the boot prompt.

OmniSwitch 6600 Series Chassis and Hardware Components
Managing MAC Addresses on the Switch
Managing MAC Addresses on the Switch
Your OmniSwitch 6600 series switch is shipped with thirty-two (32) factory-installed MAC addresses.
These MAC addresses, which are stored on an EEPROM card in the chassis, are used by the switch as
unique identifiers for the following functions:
• Base chassis MAC address
• 802.1X authentication
• VLAN router ports
Similar to IP addresses, MAC addresses are assigned by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA)
and distributed to users in sequential blocks. A sequential block of MAC addresses is referred to as a
MAC address range.
The switch’s EEPROM contains two factory-installed MAC address ranges:
MAC Range 1
Reserved for the first two MAC addresses in the factory installed range of 32
MAC addresses. The first—or start—MAC address in this range is always
allocated as the base chassis MAC address. The second MAC address is
allocated for 802.1X authentication.
MAC Range 3
Contains the switch’s remaining unused MAC addresses (i.e., MAC addresses
3 through 32).
MAC Range Guidelines
• You cannot edit or delete MAC range 1 or MAC range 3 at any time.
• The factory-installed 32 MAC addresses are sufficient for most network configurations. However, if
you require additional MAC addresses for your network, you may purchase additional MAC addresses
from Alcatel. Contact your Alcatel representative for more information.

Managing MAC Addresses on the Switch
OmniSwitch 6600 Series Chassis and Hardware Components
Base Chassis MAC Address as Unique Identifier
The switch chassis requires a unique identifier in order to be recognized by other devices in the network.
The base chassis MAC address, which is automatically allocated by the switch, serves as this identifier.
The base chassis MAC address is always the start MAC address listed in the switch’s default
MAC range 1.
Viewing the Base Chassis MAC Address
To display the switch’s base chassis MAC address, use the show mac-range command to display the
default MAC range 1. Be sure to specify the MAC range number ( 1 ), as shown below:
-> show mac-range 1
The following information displays:
Mac
Local/
Range Row Status
Global
Start Mac Addr
End Mac Addr
-----+----------------+--------+------------------+-----------------01
ACTIVE
GLOBAL
00:d0:95:6a:79:6e 00:d0:95:6a:79:8d
Because MAC address 00:d0:95:6a:79:6e is the first address in default MAC range 1, it is automatically
allocated as the base chassis MAC address and, therefore, serves as a unique identifier for the switch as a
whole.
Determining Current MAC Address Allocation on the Switch
To quickly view all allocated MAC addresses, use the show mac-range alloc command. For example:
-> show mac-range
Mac
Local/
Range Row Status
Global
Start Mac Addr
End Mac Addr

Base Chassis MAC Address in Stacked Configurations
In stacked configurations of two or more OmniSwitch 6600 series switches, the base MAC address for the
stack (also referred to as the virtual chassis) is always provided by the primary switch.
If a failover occurs and another switch assumes the primary role, the stack’s base MAC address changes to
the address provided by the new primary switch.
For detailed information on stacked configurations, refer to Chapter 3, “Managing OmniSwitch 6600
Series Stacks.”

Managing OmniSwitch
6600 Series Stacks
In addition to working as individual stand-alone switches, OmniSwitch 6600 series switches can also be
linked together to work as a single virtual switch known as a stack. With stacks you can easily expand
your switching capacity simply by adding additional switches. In addition, stacks provide enhanced resiliency and redundancy features.
Note. See Chapter 2, “OmniSwitch 6600 Series Chassis and Hardware Components,” for information on
managing OmniSwitch 6600 series switches in a stand-alone configuration.
In This Chapter
The chapter describes basic steps to configure up to eight (8) OmniSwitch 6600 series switches into a
stack. In addition, procedures using Command Line Interface (CLI) commands to monitor the status of
stacks are also provided.
Procedures described in this chapter include:
• Setting up a stacked configuration on page 3-8.
• Managing switches on a stack on page 3-16.
• Monitoring stacks with CLI commands on page 3-19.
Note. You can also monitor the status and configuration of stacks with WebView, Alcatel’s embedded
web-based device management application. WebView is an interactive and easy-to-use GUI that can be
launched from OmniVista or a web browser. Please refer to WebView’s online documentation for more
information.

Managing OmniSwitch 6600 Series Stacks
Stack Overview
Stack Overview
By default, OmniSwitch 6600 series switches operate in stand-alone mode. You can also configure two to
eight OmniSwitch 6600 series switches (in any combination of OmniSwitch 6624, 6600-U24, and 6648
switches) into one large virtual chassis known as a stack. With stacks, you can easily expand your switching capacity simply by adding additional switches. For example, you can start with a stack composed of
two switches and add switches (up to eight) as network demands increase.
Note on Terminology. In the user guides provided with your OmniSwitch 6600 series switch, the terms
switch, slot and NI (Network Interface) refer to individual OmniSwitch 6600 series units in stand-alone
mode or within a stack. The term CMM (Chassis Management Module) refers to OmniSwitch 6600 series
units operating in a stack in a primary or secondary CMM role. (OmniSwitch 6600 series switches operating in an idle CMM role would normally be referred to as a switch, slot, or, NI.)
Stacks also provide enhanced resiliency and redundancy features. If a switch in a stack goes down or is
offline, the stack will continue to operate without user intervention. In addition, when a switch autosynchronizes at boot-up or if you manually synchronize the switches (see “Synchronizing Switches in a
Stack” on page 3-17 for more information) switch operating software and configuration parameters are
backed up on all switches in the stack. Therefore if software is corrupted or damaged the original operating software and parameters can be recovered.
Switches are connected to each other in a stack with stacking modules. (See Chapter 2, “OmniSwitch 6600
Series Chassis and Hardware Components,” in this manual for more information.) These stacking modules
provide high-speed, dual-redundant links between switches in a stack. The figure below shows an example of a stack composed of four switches. Every switch in a stack is connected to other switches in a stack
in a dual-redundant “daisy-chain” manner.
This stack is composed of four OmniSwitch
6648 switches. All switches in this stack are
connected together in a dual-redundant
“daisy-chain” manner.

A Stack Composed of Four OmniSwitch 6648 Switches
OmniSwitch 6600 Series Hardware Users Guide
April 2004
page 3-3
Stack Overview
Managing OmniSwitch 6600 Series Stacks
Stacking Resiliency and Redundancy
The figure on page 3-3 shows a sample way to connect switches in a four-switch stack to ensure dualredundant connections. Except for the bottommost switch in the stack, Port 52 is connected to Port 51 on
the switch below it with a 30 centimeter stacking cable. On the bottommost switch Port 52 is connected to
Port 51 on the topmost switch in the stack with a 1 meter redundant stacking cable. If a stacking connection goes down data can still flow between all the switches in the stack. In addition, if a switch goes down
traffic can still flow between the switches that are still operating.
Note. See “Redundant Stack Connection” on page 3-13 for more information.
Slot Numbers within a Stack
By default, the slot number for OmniSwitch 6600 series switches is 8. In a stand-alone configuration you
would enter 8 when a Command Line Interface (CLI) command requires a slot number. For example, to
create VLAN 10 on port 1 on an OmniSwitch 6600 series with the default slot number you would enter
vlan 10 port default 8/1
In a stack, each switch must have a unique slot number, which is configured by the user. (See “Managing
Switches in a Stack” on page 3-16 for more information.) This slot number can be any whole number
between 1 and 8.
For example, if you have assigned slot number 2 to a switch you would enter
vlan 10 port default 2/1
The slot number for each switch is stored in the root /flash directory in the boot.slot.cfg file. This file must
exist on every switch in a stack or the stack will not be able to operate correctly. If you accidently delete
this file the switch will revert to the default slot number of 8 and will operate in standby mode. To restore
the slot number and rejoin the switch to the stack you must physically change the slot by following the
steps described in Chapter 2, “OmniSwitch 6600 Series Chassis and Hardware Components,” and reboot
the switch.
Note. In a stack consisting of three or more switches a switch that had a primary or secondary CMM role

Managing OmniSwitch 6600 Series Stacks
Stack Overview
CMM Roles in a Stack
When OmniSwitch 6600 series switches operate in a stack, one switch in the stack will always have a
primary CMM (Chassis Management Module) software role within the stack. This switch will be responsible for functions such as software and configuration management, web-based management (i.e.,
WebView), SNMP management, switch diagnostics, and software rollback.
Another switch will have a secondary CMM role. This switch acts as a backup, which is always ready to
assume the primary CMM role in the stack if the switch with the primary CMM role fails or goes offline.
Any additional switches will have an idle CMM role in the stack. These switches operate similarly to
Network Interfaces (NIs) in a chassis-based switch.
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 non-operational status until slot numbers are assigned by
the user and the stack is manually rebooted.
Once unique slot numbers are assigned to switches in a stack, the switch with the lowest slot number will
assume the primary CMM role while the switch with the next lowest slot number will assume the secondary CMM role when the stack firsts boots up. Any other switches in the stack will assume an idle CMM
role. For example, in a stack with switches numbered 2, 5, 7, and 8, Switch 2 will assume the primary role,
Switch 5 will assume the secondary role while switches 7 and 8 will assume idle roles.
In a stack, if the switch with the primary CMM role fails or goes offline for any reason, all the other
switches in the stack are instantly notified. The switch with the secondary CMM role automatically
assumes the primary role. In a stack consisting of two switches, the switch that had the primary role will
assume the secondary role if it comes back online. In a stack consisting of three or more switches the
switch with the next lowest slot number will be assigned the secondary CMM role while the switch that
was originally primary will have an idle CMM role if it comes back online.
Note. If a primary switch goes down in a stack consisting of three or more switches and then comes back
online again, it will assume an idle CMM role, not the secondary role. If you want a switch with an idle
role and the lowest slot number in a stack to regain the primary CMM role you must reboot all the
switches in the stack. (See “Resetting All Switches in a Stack” on page 3-18 for more information.)
CMM Role Redundancy
CMM role redundancy is one of the stack’s most important failover features. The switch with the primary
CMM role manages the current switch operations, the switch with the secondary CMM role provides
backup (also referred to as “failover”), and any remaining switches in the stack are in an idle CMM role.
For CMM redundancy, the software on all the switches in the stack must be synchronized. (Refer to
“Synchronizing Switches in a Stack” on page 3-17 for more information.)
The figure on the following page illustrates the CMM failover sequence:
1 Switch 1 is operating in the primary CMM mode. Switch 2 is operating in the secondary mode—i.e., it
is functioning with the standby CMM role and is ready to take over chassis management functions in the
event of a failure of the switch with the primary CMM role.
2 Switch 1 fails or is taken offline (e.g., the switch is physically removed from the stack).
3 Switch 2 automatically assumes the primary CMM role.
4 Switch 3 automatically assumes the secondary CMM role.
5 Switch 4 remains in the Idle CMM role.

Setting Up a Stacked Configuration
Managing OmniSwitch 6600 Series Stacks
Setting Up a Stacked Configuration
In order to set up a new stacked OmniSwitch 6600 series configuration, you must complete the following
steps, in the order they are listed:
1 Individually assign slot numbers to all switches
2 Attach all required stacking cables
3 Boot the newly-configured stack
For OmniSwitch 6600 series switches, the term “slot” refers to the priority status of the switch within the
stacked configuration. Slot numbers may range from 1 to 8. For detailed instructions on setting up a stack,
refer to the sections below.
Assigning Slot Numbers
Before assigning slot numbers to switches in a stacked configuration, note the following important
guidelines:
• The slot number is displayed by the slot indicator LED located on the left side of the chassis front panel
(refer to “Status LEDs” on page 2-11 for more information).
• 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.
• The top switch in the stack does not have to be designated as slot 1.
• 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 non-operational status until slot numbers are
assigned by the user and the stack is manually rebooted.
• 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.
• Changing the slot number of a chassis does not immediately 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 3-10 for one of many valid slot numbering possibilities.
To assign a new slot number to one or more switches in a stack, follow the steps below:
1 To change the slot number, gently insert a pointed item, such as the open, pointed end of a paper clip,
into the small hole (labeled SEL) below the slot number LED on the switch’s front panel. The LED
display will begin to flash. You can manually change the slot number as long as the LED continues to
flash.
Note. The LED may also advance by one number when the SEL button is initially pressed.

Managing OmniSwitch 6600 Series Stacks
Setting Up a Stacked Configuration
Connecting Cables to Stacking Ports
On OmniSwitch 6624, 6600-U24, and 6648 switches only, note the following important guidelines before
connecting stacking cables to stacking modules:
• Before attempting to connect OS6624, OS6600-U24, and OS6648 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 and OS6600-U24) or 51 and 52 (OS6648). For detailed information on installing stacking
modules, refer to “Installing Uplink and Stacking Modules” on page 2-29.
• Stacking modules can only be installed in the far-right module slot. This slot is labeled EXPANSION/
STACKING and contains port positions 27 and 28 (OS6624 and OS6600-U24) or 51 and 52 (OS6648).
• Do not attempt to install the stacking module at the EXPANSION slot at port positions 25 and 26
(OS6624 and OS6600-U24) or 49 and 50 (OS6648).
On all OmniSwitch 6600 series switches, note the following important guidelines before connecting stacking cables to stacking modules:
• If you have not already individually assigned slot numbers and powered off each switch, do not
connect stacking cables to the stacking ports. Instead, refer to “Assigning Slot Numbers” on page 3-8
and follow the instructions for assigning slot numbers to each switch.
• Port numbers are clearly marked on the chassis front panel.
• For information on setting up stack redundancy, refer to “Redundant Stack Connection” on page 3-13.
To connect stacking cables to stacking modules and link your OmniSwitch 6600 series switch into a
virtual chassis, follow the steps below:
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) port, as shown.

Connecting the Switches in the Stack
Note. There are no restrictions on which HSSDC stacking ports must be connected. For example, a stacking cable connected to port 51 on an OS6648 may be connected to either port 51 or port 52 on the OS6648
immediately below. However, for easier management, it is recommended that you keep a consistent
pattern for all switches in the stack.
3 To provide added resiliency and redundancy, it is strongly recommended that you install the optional
one-meter stacking cable to connect the top switch in the stack to the bottom switch in the stack. Use the
unused HSSDC stacking connectors located at ports 27 and 28 (OS6624 and OS6600-U24) or 51 and 52
(OS6648) of each switch, as shown. For more information on stack redundancy and the one-meter stacking cable, refer to “Redundant Stack Connection” on page 3-13.
Note. The one-meter stacking cable is available with Alcatel’s optional Redundant Stacking Kit.

Redundant Stack Connection
The figure below shows how the redundant connection (provided by the OS66STK-CBL1M cable)
between the top and bottom switches in the stack ensures that data will continue to flow throughout the
stack, even in the unlikely event of a connection failure between two switches.
No Connection Failure
In this example, there is a VLAN with an ingress port on
switch 1 and an egress port on switch 2.
Switch 1
Switch 2
Data enters switch 1 via a 10/100 Ethernet port, then is
passed to switch 2 over the OS66STK-CBL30 stacking
cable connection, then exits switch 2 via a 10/100 Ethernet port.
Switch 3
Connection Failure Between Switches 1 and 2
Here, the stacking connection between switches 1 and 2
has gone down unexpectedly. Data can no longer travel
directly between switches 1 and 2.
Switch 1
However, because there is a redundant connection (the
OS66STK-CBL1M cable between switches 1 and 4),
data is passed to switch 4, then quickly traverses switch 3
and exits switch 2 to its destination.

Setting Up a Stacked Configuration
Managing OmniSwitch 6600 Series Stacks
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.
Important. Whenever booting a stacked configuration, note that the primary switch will automatically
distribute its system and configuration software to all switches in the stack whenever the virtual chassis
boots. During this automatic software synchronization, system and configuration software on the secondary and idle switches is overwritten. Because the primary switch’s “last known good” software is propagated to all switches, the synchronization process helps ensure effective redundancy across the stack.
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.
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.
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 Slot Number Assignments
After the stack is completely booted, all switches in the stack operate using the user-assigned slot
numbers. To verify the slot numbers for each switch, refer to the slot indicator LED on the front panel of
each switch. For more information, refer to “Status LEDs” on page 2-11.
Verifying Primary and Secondary Status for the Stack
Primary, Secondary and Idle switch status is indicated by the PRI and SEC LEDs. 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 configured and booted, 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.
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.

Managing Switches in a Stack
Managing OmniSwitch 6600 Series Stacks
Managing Switches in a Stack
Most Command Line Interface (CLI) commands can be used to configure OmniSwitch 6600 series
switches operating in either stand-alone or stack configuration. This section describes how to use CLI
commands to manage switches operating in a stack.
Note. You must be logged into a switch in a stack with either the primary Chassis Management Module
(CMM) or secondary CMM role to use CLI commands. You cannot log into a switch in an idle role.
These functions include reloading switches with a primary or secondary CMM role (see “Reloading a
Switch with a Primary or Secondary CMM Role” on page 3-16), synchronizing flash memory in the stack
(see “Synchronizing Switches in a Stack” on page 3-17), managing the Chassis Management Module
(CMM) roles in a stack (“Changing the Secondary CMM Role to Primary” on page 3-18), and resetting all
switches in a stack (“Resetting All Switches in a Stack” on page 3-18).
Note. See Chapter 2, “OmniSwitch 6600 Series Chassis and Hardware Components,” chapter in this
manual for more information on managing individual switches.
Reloading a Switch with a Primary or Secondary CMM Role
You can reload a switch with either the primary or secondary CMM role using the CLI’s reload
command. For information on using this command, refer to the “Managing CMM Directory Content”
chapter in the OmniSwitch 6624/6648 Switch Management Guide. A CMM reload is essentially a soft boot
of the switch. Note that you can reload only one switch at a time with this command.
Note. See “Resetting All Switches in a Stack” on page 3-18 for information on reloading all switches in a
stack.
Reloading the Switch with the Primary CMM Role
If the switch with the primary CMM role is reloaded, the switch with the secondary CMM role automatically takes over primary management functions. In other words, the switch with the secondary CMM role
assumes the primary CMM role as soon as the reload is initiated.
If there are only two switches in the stack then the reloaded switch will assume the secondary—or redundant—CMM role. If there are three or more switches in the stack then the reloaded switch will assume an
idle role when the reload sequence is complete. The idle switch with the lowest slot number will assume
the secondary CMM role.
Reloading the Switch with the Secondary CMM Role
If the switch with secondary CMM role is reloaded, then the idle switch with the lowest slot number will
become secondary. The reloaded switch (i.e., the former secondary) will assume an idle role. The switch
with the primary CMM role continues all operations without interruption.
page 3-16
OmniSwitch 6600 Series Hardware Users Guide
April 2004
Managing OmniSwitch 6600 Series Stacks
Managing Switches in a Stack
Synchronizing Switches in a Stack
“CMM” synchronization refers to the process of copying all files in the /flash/working and /flash/
certified directories of the switch with the primary Chassis Management Module (CMM) role to the
/flash/working and /flash/certified directories of all the other switches in the stack. (This includes the
switch with the secondary CMM role and all the switches with an idle CMM role.)
This synchronization process ensures that these directories match exactly for all switches in the stack.
Synchronization prevents any switch in the stack from assuming the primary role with incorrect or
outdated software or configuration files.
Important. In order to have effective redundancy, switches in the stack must be synchronized at all times.
To synchronize the switches in the stack, enter the following command at the CLI prompt:
-> copy working certified flash-syncro
For more information on CMM synchronization and managing the /flash/working and /flash/certified
directories, refer to the “Managing CMM Directory Content” chapter in the OmniSwitch 6624/6648 Switch
Management Guide.
Restoring Switch Redundancy
Once the copy flash-synchro command has been issued, the switches in the stack will have the correct
software, but will not have loaded it into the running directory until the stack is rebooted. To reboot the
stack for synchronization, use the restore redundancy command, as shown:
-> restore redundancy
This command will cause each element in the stack to reload.
Note. Connectivity to the switch is interrupted when this command is executed.
It may not be expedient to reboot a stack immediately after synchronizing the elements in the stack. It is
possible to cause a synchronization reboot at a future time by setting time parameters in conjuction with
the restore redundancy command, using the in or at keywords.
To schedule a resynchronization of a stack in 3 hours and 3 minutes, you would enter:
-> restore redundancy in 3:03
To schedule a resynchronization of a stack for June 30 at 8:00pm, you would enter:
-> restore redundancy at 20:00 june 30
Note. Scheduled resynchronization times should be entered in military format (i.e., a twenty-four hour
clock).
To cancel a scheduled resynchronization enter:
-> restore redundancy cancel

Managing Switches in a Stack
Managing OmniSwitch 6600 Series Stacks
Changing the Secondary CMM Role to Primary
To change a switch with a secondary role to primary use the takeover command. For example, while
logged into either the primary or secondary switch enter:
-> takeover
at the CLI prompt. In a stack consisting of two switches the primary switch will become secondary. In a
stack consisting of three or more switches the secondary switch will become primary, the idle switch with
lowest slot number will become secondary, and the switch that was primary will become idle.
You can determine the current CMM role of a switch by examining the PRI and SEC LEDs on the
switch’s front panel. Refer to Chapter 2, “OmniSwitch 6600 Series Chassis and Hardware Components,”
for more information. You can also use the show running-directory command to display whether the
switch into which you are currently logged is primary or secondary. For example:
-> show running-directory
Running CMM
:
Running configuration
:
Certify/Restore Status
:
Synchronization Status
:
Stacks Reload on Takeover:
PRIMARY,
CERTIFIED,
CERTIFY NEEDED,
SYNCHRONIZED,
PRIMARY ONLY
In this example, the user is currently logged in to the switch with the primary CMM role.
Note. Before using the takeover command, verify that the switches in the stack are synchronized. Otherwise, data flow and switch management functions may be interrupted due to incorrect or outdated software when a switch takes over the primary CMM role. For more information, refer to “Synchronizing
Switches in a Stack” on page 3-17.
Module Behavior During Takeover
If there are no unsaved configuration changes and the flash directories on both the primary and secondary
management modules have been synchronized via the copy flash-synchro command, no modules will be
reloaded if a management module takeover occurs. As a result, data flow is not interrupted on the modules
during the takeover.
If a configuration change is made to one or more modules (e.g., a VLAN is configured on several different interfaces), and the changes are not saved via the write memory command, the corresponding modules
will automatically reload if a management module takeover occurs. Data flow on the affected modules will
be interrupted until the reload is complete. Note that the modules will reload whether or not the flash
synchronization status shows SYNCHRONIZED. This is because the unsaved changes have occurred in
the running configuration (i.e., RAM), and have not been written to the flash directory’s configuration file.
In this case, a list of only the affected modules displays in the table output (e.g., 1 6 9 12).
If the flash directories on the primary and secondary management modules are not synchronized (e.g., a
copy flash-synchro command has not been issued recently), all modules will be reloaded automatically if
a management module takeover occurs. Data flow will be interrupted on all modules until the reload is
complete.

In the example on the previous page there are two switches in this stack. Switch 1, which is an OS6648,
has the primary CMM role and Switch 2, which is an OS6624, has the secondary CMM role. Switch 1’s
left-hand stacking port (Port 51) is connected to Switch 2’s left-hand stacking port (Port 27). Switch 1’s
right-hand stacking port (Port 52) is connected to Switch 2’s right-hand stacking port (Port 28). The Link
A State and Link B State fields indicate that the links between the switches are currently active and
running.
As an option you can display the topology of a single switch in a stack by entering show stack topology
followed by the slot number of the switch. For example, to display the topology of switch (slot) you would
enter
