About the Web Switching Module
The Web Switching Module (WSM) and 8600 Series I/O modules in a 8600
switch provide a complete Layer 2 through 7 switching solution. You can
aggregate large numbers of 10/100/1000 Ethernet connections to servers, routers,
firewalls, and caches for switching and routing, load balancing, application
redirection, and content-intelligent web switching. Figure 1 on page 24 shows the
Web Switching Module.

The WSM is unique among 8600 I/O modules because it functions as an
intelligent switch within a switch.
The WSM consists of two entities:
•
•
A web switching engine with its own management processor and the Web OS
(operating system).
A Backplane Fabric Module (BFM) that connects the switching module to the
8600 backplane.
You can connect to the WSM and Web OS using the 8600 Command Line
Interface (CLI). The WSM is supported on the 8010 and 8010co (10-slot chassis),
the 8006 (6-slot chassis), and the 8003 (3-slot chassis). It is also supported with
many 8600 modules (see “System requirements” on page 59).
Installed ports
Table 2 describes the ports on the WSM. For detailed descriptions of each port
type, see “Ports” on page 28.

Front-facing ports 1-4
Front-facing ports have dual-media 10/100 and 1000BaseSX physical connector
jacks that you can connect to network devices such as a Layer-2 switch, another
8600 I/O module, a server, or an upstream router. You can configure ports 1-4
using the Web OS CLI or Device Manager.
Each front-facing port on the WSM has two connector jacks (Figure 2 on
page 28). The RJ-45 jack connects 10/100 Mb/s Fast Ethernet segments to the
port, and the SC jack connects Gigabit Ethernet fiber optic segments. The ports
auto-negotiate and support half- and full-duplex operation. Only one of the two
jacks can be active at any given time. For a description of selection conditions, see
“Automatic selection of redundant connections” on page 33.

Gigabit Ethernet fiber-optic SC connector
(850 nm, short wavelength) ports for riser connections, server attachments, or
interswitch links. The module’s short wavelength optical transceivers provide
transmission ranges up to 275 meters (m) using 62.5 µm multimode fiber
cable or up to 550 m using 50 µm multimode fiber cable. Each 1000BASE-SX
port can operate in full- or half-duplex mode at distances up to 100m.
Installing the Web Switching Module for the Ethernet Routing Switch 8600
30
Introducing the Web Switching Module
•
RJ-45 10/100 Mb/s Fast Ethernet connector
Each port can operate in full- or half-duplex mode at distances up to 100m.
Autonegotiation circuitry automatically negotiates the highest possible data
rate and the duplex operation possible with the attached device.
The WSM supports standards-based full-duplex and IEEE802.3
autonegotiation for PAUSE frames and remote fault identification when the
connected device supports autonegotiation. The Online LED indicates module
status. For details about port LEDs, see “LEDs” on page 32.
Note: Avoid using the front facing ports unless absolutely necessary.
They are limited in number and should be reserved for services that need
them, such as stealth mode Intrusion Detection SLB or WAN Link SLB.
Using the front-facing ports transfers the L2/3 processing to the WSM,
and away from the 8600 Series switch where it is intended to be done.
Rear-facing ports 5-8
Rear-facing ports 5-8 have no physical connectors. They are located on the
WSM’s printed circuit board, and are permanently trunked to the BFM ports as
shown in Figure 3 on page 29. You can configure rear-facing ports 5-8 using the
Web OS CLI or Device Manager. These rear-facing ports are used when
connecting to other Ethernet Routing Switch I/O modules through the BFM ports.
Rear-facing ports 5-8 operate at Gigabit Full-Duplex.
Rear-facing ports 5-8 only allow you to configure a few items. You can change the
port name as well as the default VLAN ID (PVID).
Note: If you change the PVID on a rear-facing port, you must change it
on all ports in the trunk group.
314969-D Rev 00
Introducing the Web Switching Module
31
You can also configure the WSM backplane ports to accept IP-only packets and
you can enable RMON on these ports. These ports are enabled by default and
cannot be disabled. Because they belong to a trunk group, you cannot configure
them with individual bandwidth contracts. 802.1Q tagging is enabled by default
on these ports and cannot be disabled.
Note: Nortel recommends using the WSM for IP-only applications.
Although the WSM can transparently pass other protocol packets, such as
IPX, from the 8600 using a Layer 2 switching engine, it is optimized for
Layer 2 to Layer 7 TCP/IP operations.
BFM ports 1-4
The four single-gigabit BFM ports connect the WSM to the backplane of the 8600
Series switch chassis. BFM ports 1-4 are permanently trunked with the rear-facing
ports 5-8 as shown in Figure 3 on page 29. BFM ports (1-4) are referenced by slot/
port.
When you insert a WSM into a slot, the 8600 Series switch CLI and Device
Manager recognize the BFM ports. For example, when viewing WSM VLAN port
membership, the 8600 Series switch CLI and Device Manager show the BFM
ports. However, when viewing VLAN membership from the WSM, the CLI and
Device Manager show the port numbers of the rear-facing ports to which the BFM
ports are trunked.
As BFM ports provide WSM connectivity to the 8600 Series switch through the
backplane, certain restrictions apply to their configuration:
•
•
•
•
You can modify only the Name and the Link Trap settings on the BFM ports.
You cannot create Brouter ports on BFM ports.
You cannot disable BFM ports and you cannot disable 802.1Q on the BFM
ports.
Unknown-MAC-Discard is configurable but you cannot apply IP filters to
BFM ports.

Introducing the Web Switching Module
Maintenance port
The maintenance port is a DIN-8 connector. You can connect to the WSM with
this port to perform a serial download of a Web OS software image. For
information about establishing a serial connection to the WSM and performing a
serial download of a software image, see Upgrading to Ethernet Routing Switch
8600 Software Release 4.1. Nortel provides a DB-9 to DIN-8 serial cable.
The maintenance port should be used only as a management port. You should
access the WSM using the 8600 Series switch CLI. See “Connecting to the WSM”
on page 81 for more information about connecting to the WSM from the 8600
Series switch CLI.
LEDs
The WSM module has Link and Data LEDs (Figure 4) for each front-facing port,
and an Online LED that indicates when the module is properly connected and
running. Table 5 describes the items shown in Figure 4.

Management processor
The WSM contains a central management processor (MP) that provides overall
control of the module and stores the Web OS software.
Automatic selection of redundant connections
Because the WSM supports dual-media configuration on the front-facing ports
1-4, the module can automatically bring up and failover between the 10/100 Mb/s
and 1000 Mb/s port-pairs. The order of precedence occurs as follows:
•
If both the 10/100 Mb/s and 1000 Mb/s ports are inactive:
— If the user activates the Gigabit Ethernet port first (by plugging a live
cable into the SX-jack), the port immediately becomes active.

314969-D Rev 00
— If the user activates the 10/100 Mb/s port first, it remains inactive for a
user-selectable time-out (default 1.5 seconds). If the Gigabit Ethernet port
is activated prior to the time-out, it becomes the active port, otherwise the
10/100 Mb/s port becomes active.
If the active Gigabit Ethernet link fails, the 10/100 Mb/s port becomes the
active port.
If the 10/100 Mb/s link is active and the Gigabit Ethernet link becomes viable
(either because of a newly created connection or because of a repaired link),
the 10/100 Mb/s link remains active until one of the following occurs:
— The 10/100 Mb/s link fails or the user removes it.
— The user forces the Gigabit Ethernet to become the active link from
any management interface.

Default configuration
When a WSM initializes, some components are dynamically configured. The
WSM uses the four rear-facing ports (5 - 8) to integrate into the backplane of the
8600 chassis.
The WSM is an intelligent module with self-configuration capabilities. Each
WSM in the 8600 Series switch chassis uses two MLT IDs. For more information,
see “8600 MLT groups” on page 40.
Figure 6 illustrates the WSM default configuration for an 8600 chassis with a
single WSM installed.

STG 1
STG 1 is created to hold default VLAN 1,
front-facing ports 1- 4, and rear-facing
ports 7- 8. By default, all newly created
VLANs on the WSM are part of STG 1,
until you assign them to another STG.
BFM ports 3 and 4 linked with the WSM are
added to STG1. User can remove BFM
Ports from default STG and add these to
any STG and VLAN.
STG 2
STG 2 is created to hold VLAN 2 and
rear-facing ports 5 and 6.
Not configured as part of the WSM

VLAN 1
Rear-facing ports 7 and 8 as well as
front-facing ports 1 - 4 are added to
VLAN 1.
VLAN 1 provides server-side access. It is
fully configurable and can have no
defined port members. Since VLAN 1 is
the default VLAN, it cannot be deleted.
VLAN 1 is assigned to WSM trunk group
3.
BFM ports 3 and 4 from the WSM are
added to the 8600 VLAN1.
VLAN 1 is required for server-side traffic. It
is fully configurable and is associated with
the management trunk group (MLT32 by
default in a single WSM configuration). By
default VLAN 1 contains BFM ports 3 and 4
for each WSM. Since VLAN 1 is the default
VLAN, it cannot be deleted and it contains
any port on the system that does not have a
VLAN assigned. Default Spanning Tree
Group 1 is added to VLAN 1 and cannot be
changed.
Since BFM ports 3 and 4 from each WSM
are added to VLAN 1, a broadcast in
VLAN 1 causes a broadcast in all WSMs
using the default configuration. To avoid
this, modify the default VLAN structure.

VLAN 2
Rear-facing ports 5 and 6 are added to
VLAN 2.
VLAN 2 provides client-side access. It is
fully configurable and can have no port
members defined. VLAN 2 is assigned to
WSM trunk group 4 and contains
rear-facing ports 5 and 6.
Although VLAN 2 is not part of the factory
default on the 8600 Series switch, it is
required on the WSM to support 8600
Series switch code versions prior to 3.2.2.
For this reason, with every factory reset,
the WSM rear-facing ports 5 and 6 are
added to VLAN 2. Since the rear-facing
ports are 802.1Q tagged links, they can
belong to multiple VLANs so it is not
necessary for you to remove these links
from VLAN 2 prior to adding them to
another VLAN, although it is
recommended.
VLAN 2 is not configured by default.
With release code 3.2.2 and later, VLAN2 is
not a hard-coded system VLAN. This
ensures that VLAN 2 is not added to
non-IMC trunks as a default setting and
gives you flexibility to assign a VLAN once
the MLT group for WSM rear facing ports 5
and 6 is validated to the non-imc trunk list.
VLAN 4093
VLAN 4093 is configured as follows
during initialization:
• Rear-facing ports 7 and 8
• IP address assigned in the range
172.31.255.246/28 - 172.31.255.253/
28
• IP interface 256
• WSM trunk group 3
VLAN 4093 manages the WSM
connection to the 8600 Series switch
backplane. It is completely hidden, is not
configurable, and cannot be removed.
If VLAN 4093 is already configured on
your network, you must change that
VLAN to use another VLAN ID before
inserting the WSM.
If you have an IP address conflict within
your network, contact Customer Support.
See “How to get help” on page 21 for
more information.
VLAN 4093 is configured as follows during
initialization:
• BFM ports 3 and 4
• IP address 172.31.255.245 / 28
• mask 255.255.255.240
• Default IP management subnet
VLAN 4093 is used for internal switch
management. It belongs to the
management MLT by default, is hidden, and
will not appear in the ARP table or IP
routing table. It cannot be removed or
configured.

Trunk groups
This section includes the following topics:
•
•
“8600 MLT groups” on page 40
“WSM trunk groups” on page 42
8600 MLT groups
The 8600 Series switch allows a total of 32 MLT groups. Each WSM installed in
the 8600 chassis will be assigned two available MLT groups.
When inserted in the chassis, the WSM begins searching the available MLTs, from
the highest-numbered to the lowest-numbered, for unused MLT IDs.
For example, if MLT IDs 1 - 32 are available on the 8600 Series switch, the WSM
starts searching at MLT ID 32, then MLT 31, then MLT 30, and so on. MLT IDs
32 and 31 are assigned to the BFM ports linked with the WSM if the 8600 Series
switch configuration does not already use these IDs. For more information, see
“How MLTs are dynamically assigned” on page 41.
All ports in the dynamically-created MLTs are 802.1Q-tagged.
Figure 7 on page 41 shows two WSMs, each using two MLTs. The WSM in slot 4
uses MLT31 and 32. The WSM in slot 2 uses MLT29 and 30.

How MLTs are dynamically assigned
The IDs for 8600 Series switch Dynamic MLT links to the WSM are assigned
automatically. After inserting a WSM into the chassis, the highest available MLT
will be assigned to BFM ports 3 and 4, the second highest to BFM ports 1 and 2.
Based on availability, MLT trunk group numbers will not necessarily be
consecutive.
•
•
•
If MLT 32 and 31 are not in use, MLT 32 and 31 are assigned.
If MLT 32 and 31 are in use, MLT 30 and 29 are assigned.
If MLT 31, 30 and 29 are in use, MLT 32 and 28 are assigned.
Note: During initialization, the WSM fails to boot if two unused MLTs
are not available on the 8600 Series switch.
To take full advantage of the 8600 Series switch port capacity and other
I/O modules in the chassis, configure and add a VLAN(s) to the 8600
switch MLT 31 and WSM trunk group 4 (ports 5 and 6).
If a WSM is installed in a 8600 Series switch chassis and MLTs are created
dynamically for the WSM, you cannot set these MLTs to SMLT. For both CLI and
Device Manager operation, the MLT is verified before it is set to SMLT. In Device
Manager, if a MLT is the WSM MLT, then you cannot set the mltType to SMLT.
Installing the Web Switching Module for the Ethernet Routing Switch 8600
42
Understanding the WSM
How an 8600 Series switch reset affects MLT assignment
When an 8600 Series switch is reset, the MLT dynamic assignments start first
with the WSM installed in the lowest slot number. This can cause your initial
trunk group assignments to change, for example:
Initial installation:
1
WSM 1 is first inserted in slot 8 and assigned MLT 31 and 32.
2
WSM 2 is then inserted in slot 1 and assigned MLT 29 and 30.
After a reset:
1
WSM 1 in slot 8 is assigned MLT 29 and 30.
2
WSM 2 in slot 1 is assigned MLT 31 and 32.
WSM trunk groups
The WSM has a total of four trunk groups. There are two user-configurable trunk
groups—trunk groups 1 and 2. Trunk groups 3 and 4 are pre-configured as WSM
factory defaults and provide connectivity to the 8600 Series switch through the
backplane. You cannot add or delete ports from trunk groups 3 and 4.
Figure 8 shows sample CLI output of pre-configured WSM trunk groups.

VLANs
This section includes the following topics:
•
•
•
“VLAN recommended for client-server separation” on page 43
“WSM VLANs” on page 43
“8600 Series switch VLANs” on page 44
VLAN recommended for client-server separation
The 8600 switch ports which are connected to clients are associated with different
VLANs than the 8600 switch ports which are connected to servers.
VLANs associated with 8600 switch ports which are connected to clients, are
added to the MLT configured for BFM ports 3-4 and WSM trunk group 3. This
VLAN association allows forwarding of traffic from clients to the WSM.
VLANs associated with 8600 Series switch ports which are connected to servers,
are added to the MLT configured for BFM ports 1-2 and WSM trunk group 4. This
VLAN association allows forwarding of traffic from servers to the WSM,
To separate client and server processing, Nortel recommends that you add the
second highest MLT (usually 31) to a unique VLAN<n>. Configure this VLAN
on both the WSM and the 8600 Series switch.
On the 8600 switch-side, the unique VLAN<n> must match the WSM 2nd MLT
Group. VLAN<n> on the 8600 switch enables Layer 4-7 processing through any
I/O Module in the 8600 Series switch chassis.
WSM VLANs
On the WSM, you can configure 246 VLANs using VLAN IDs 1-4092. VLANs 1
and 2 are automatically created as part of the WSM default configuration.
Installing the Web Switching Module for the Ethernet Routing Switch 8600
44
Understanding the WSM
You can change the port membership for VLAN 1 and VLAN 2. The default
configuration adds trunk group 3 (ports 7 and 8) to VLAN 1 and trunk group 4
(ports 5 and 6) to VLAN 2. To avoid Layer 2 looping, do not add the two MLTs to
the same VLAN. VLAN 2 is a place-holder for trunk group 4 in the factory default
configuration. You can add other ports to VLANs in trunk groups 3 and 4. You can
also remove trunk groups 3 and 4 from the default VLANs and add them to any
other VLAN(s).
All rear-facing WSM ports in the default trunk groups are 802.1Q-tagged.
In WSM WebOS, VLAN 1 is a default VLAN and cannot be deleted.
VLAN2 can be deleted as long as no port has its default VLAN ID (PVID)
set to VLAN2. All other VLANs can be created and/or deleted.

during WSM initialization.

8600 Series switch VLANs
The 8600 Series switch automatically creates VLAN 1 during default
configuration. The WSM dynamic MLT with the higher MLT ID [Port members
slot<number>/3 and slot<number>/4] is added to VLAN 1. The second dynamic
MLT remains unassigned and is not added to any VLAN. You can add this MLT
to any VLAN.
8600 Series switch internal WSM management VLAN 4093
The 8600 Series switch automatically creates VLAN 4093 for WSM internal
management whenever one of the following occurs:
•
314969-D Rev 00
You insert a WSM into an 8600 chassis.
Understanding the WSM
•
45
You restart an 8600 Series switch which has a WSM in one slot.
Since VLAN 4093 is used for internal management, its port membership is not
saved in the 8600 Series switch configuration file. If all WSMs are removed from
the 8600 chassis, VLAN 4093 is automatically removed. The WSM dynamic
MLT with the higher MLT ID [Port members slot(x)/3 and slot(x)/4] is added to
VLAN 4093. When a WSM is present in the 8600 chassis you cannot delete
VLAN 4093 nor modify its port membership.
Note: If VLAN 4093 is in use on your 8600 Series switch, you must
reconfigure the 8600 Series switch to free VLAN 4093 before inserting
the WSM.
You can display the MLT trunk groups for each module, their member ports
(based on the BFM port numbers), and VLAN IDs.

Boot process
An 8600 chassis in which one or more WSMs are installed, boots in the following
sequence.
1
The 8600 Series switch CPU boots and configures non-WSM 8600 I/O
modules using the config.cfg file.
2
If a WSM is inserted into the chassis, it sends a bootp request to the 8600
Series switch CPU. VLAN 4093 is created and the management IP address is
assigned to the CPU.
3
The 8600 Series switch CPU assigns and sends a Management IP address to
the WSM using bootp response.
4
The 8600 Series switch CPU checks the MAC address of the WSM.
•
•
If the MAC address matches a previously known WSM, then it configures
the VLANs on the associated BFM to the previous (saved) configuration
using the wsmtrunk.bin file. The wsmtrunk.bin file is updated whenever
you enter the 8600 Series switch command, save config.cfg.
If the MAC address does not match a previously known WSM, then the
default configuration (Figure 6 on page 37) is applied to that slot.
Installing the Web Switching Module for the Ethernet Routing Switch 8600
48
Understanding the WSM
WSM clock and password synchronization
During the boot process, the WSM clock and password are synchronized with the
8600 clock and password. Changes to the 8600 clock are immediately applied to
the WSM.
Note: You can only change passwords from the 8600 CLI. WSM
passwords are synchronized from the 8600 Series switch host and cannot
be set on the WSM side. You cannot change passwords from Device
Manager.
To synchronize the WSM with a newly installed 8600 Network Time Protocol
(NTP) server, you need to reboot the WSM. If the 8600 Series switch points to a
different NTP server or if the NTP server is enabled on the 8600 Series switch to
point to a NTP server, you need to reboot the WSM to synchronize the new time.
WSM heartbeat mechanism
Once the WSM is up and running, it sends a heartbeat to the 8600 Series switch
every 10 seconds. The 8600 switch monitors the heartbeats from the WSM every
15 seconds. If it misses six consecutive heartbeats, and the traffic level is zero, the
8600 switch sends the following message:
Warning: the WSM in slot 3 has missed 6 heartbeats,
and control communication may have been lost.
You may need to reset the WSM in slot 3
Spanning Tree Protocol
To prevent loops in the network topology, the WSM and 8600 Series switch
support IEEE 802.1d Spanning Tree Protocol (STP). This section defines the
factory default Spanning Tree configuration for 8600 Series switch and WSM for
interoperability of the two devices. The WSM has fully optimized and functional
Layer 2 to Layer 7 switching software. You can avoid Layer 2 loops with a
carefully considered network design.
314969-D Rev 00
Understanding the WSM
49
Spanning Tree configuration for the WSM
Spanning Tree Protocol is enabled by default on the WSM front-facing ports and
rear-facing ports. The WSM supports a total of 15 Spanning Tree instances. By
default all newly-created VLANs are members of STG 1. Two STP instances,
STP 1 and STP 2, are created by default on the WSM.
•
•
VLAN 1 belongs to STP 1
VLAN 2 belongs to STP 2

All WSM VLANs are added to a Spanning Tree Group. All ports belonging to a
VLAN are automatically added to the STP group to which the VLAN is added. In
the default configuration, VLAN 1 (trunk group 3) belongs to Spanning Tree 1
and VLAN 2 (trunk group 4) belongs to Spanning Tree 2. You can remove trunk
group ports from the default VLAN/STP and add them to new VLAN and
Spanning tree groups. To avoid Layer 2 looping, Nortel recommends that you use
two different spanning tree groups for the WSM ports in rear-facing trunk groups.
All WSM front-facing ports are part of STP 1 by default.

Bridge priority on the WSM
Nortel recommends that you use the 8600 Series switch as the root bridge when
configuring STP on the WSM because it has the most powerful processing
capacity. To ensure that the 8600 Series switch becomes the root bridge during
default configuration, the WSM bridge priority is set to 49152. You can change
the WSM bridge priority later using either Device Manager or the WSM CLI (/
cfg/stp <group#>/brg). The 8600 Series switch default bridge priority is
32768 (lower value is higher priority).
The default bridge priority on the WSM is computed as follows:
Bridge Priority = 8600_Default + (LowestValue - 8600_Default) /2
= 32768 + (65535 - 32768) /2
= 49151.5
= 49152 (roundup)
If you want to make the WSM the root bridge, you can increase its bridge priority
to 1, or a value lower than 32768 (the 8600 switch default bridge priority value).
Figure 15 on page 52 shows the WSM /cfg/stp <group#>/brg output.

The WSM has one MAC address for the switch. All packets sourcing from the
WSM use this MAC address as the source MAC address in their packets. All STP
instances use the WSM switch MAC address as the STP bridge MAC address. All
BPDUs for the default Spanning Tree (STP 1) on the WSM and the 8600 switch
are always untagged. BPDUs from STP instances other than STP 1 are
802.1Q-tagged if tagging is enabled on the ports from which the BPDU is
sourcing. 8021.Q-tagged VLAN ID is set to port PVID for tagged BPDUs.
STP instances can be globally disabled on the WSM using the /cfg/stp 1/off
command. When STP is globally turned off for the WSM, it starts forwarding
incoming BPDUs as normal Layer 2 packets.
Caution: To avoid Layer 2 loops in the network which can cause a
broadcast storm, use caution when disabling STP globally.

Spanning Tree configuration in the 8600 switch
The 8600 Series switch 4.1 software release supports a total of 64 Spanning Tree
IDs. In the default configuration, all 8600 Series switch ports are assigned to
VLAN 1 and STG 1.
Internal management VLAN 4093 and STG 64
The 8600 Series switch internal WSM management VLAN 4093 belongs to STG
64. VLAN 4093 is created automatically when a WSM is inserted in an 8600
Series switch chassis. For more information about VLAN 4093, see “8600 Series
switch internal WSM management VLAN 4093” on page 44.
You cannot modify STG 64 parameters when a WSM is present in the 8600
chassis. Before inserting a WSM into an 8600 chassis, make sure that STG ID 64
is available and free for use by the WSM. If it is already in use, you must
reconfigure the 8600 switch to free STG 64.
Figure 17 on page 54 shows the error message that results if STG ID 64 is already
in use when you insert the WSM in an 8600 chassis.

In the default configuration, the 8600 switch dynamic MLT link to the WSM
which has the higher MLT ID goes to STG 64/VLAN 4093 and STG 1/VLAN 1.
The dynamic MLT which has the lower MLT-ID does not go to any VLAN or

Nortel recommends that you not turn off STG on the 8600 switch unless it is
really necessary.
Caution: To avoid Layer 2 loops which can cause a broadcast storm, use
caution when disabling STP globally.
Unlike the WSM, each STG instance on the 8600 switch has a unique bridge
MAC address. All 8600 switch Ethernet ports also have a unique MAC address,
and all packets coming from the 8600 switch carry Ethernet port MAC addresses
as their source MAC.

You can install any of the supported 8600 modules in the remaining chassis slots.
For information on the 8600 Series switch modules, see Installing Ethernet
Routing Switch 8600 Modules.
Note: The WSM is a 32K records module. If one or more WSM modules
are installed in the chassis, any 128K record modules installed in the
chassis will be disabled if the chassis is configured to operate in MMode
(128K records mode). To operate a WSM in a chassis that contains 128K
records modules, you must disable MMode. For instructions on enabling
or disabling MMode, see Managing Platform Operations.

Removing and installing a filler panel
Nortel ships the 8600 Series chassis with a filler panel covering each empty
module slot.
Note: On a 8003, 8006, or 8010 chassis, the filler panel covers an empty
module slot. On the 8010co chassis, the filler panel resembles a module
and is installed in the empty module slot.
Before you can install a WSM, you must remove the appropriate filler panel, for
instructions, see the next section
Removing a filler panel
To remove a filler panel:
1
Using a Phillips screwdriver, loosen the two captive screws that fasten the
filler panel to the slot (Figure 20 and Figure 21 on page 64).

Installing and replacing the WSM
•
To prevent static discharge damage when you work with the WSM, place the
WSM on a grounded antistatic mat until you are ready to install it. If you do
not have an antistatic mat, wear a discharge leash or wrist strap to free
yourself of static before you touch a module. You can also free yourself of
static by touching the metal chassis before you handle the module.
Caution: Electrostatic discharge can damage hardware. Follow the
procedures in this section to protect your equipment from damage.
•
•
When handling modules, do not touch components on the circuit boards;
always handle module by their edges. Store unused modules in their
protective packaging.
To maintain proper airflow and cooling, always cover unused module slots
and power supply bays with filler panels.
Warning: Fiber optic equipment can emit laser or infrared light that can

Installing the WSM
Removing a WSM
You can remove any of the modules from an operating switch chassis without
turning off power to the chassis. In all other cases, a module inserted into a 8600
chassis is reset to factory defaults.
Note: Unseating a WSM when the traffic is about sixty to seventy
percent of the line rate may prevent initialization of the gigabit link.
Before unseating a WSM, stop the traffic and then insert the module.
If you replace the switch fabric module, all the other non-WSM modules in the
chassis reset and revert to their saved configuration settings. If configuration
settings for a module have not been saved, the module reverts to its factory default
settings.
The configuration is not reset when you remove the WSM or switch fabric
modules from the chassis because the WSM stores its configuration in its own
flash memory.
To remove a WSM:
1
Disconnect any cables attached to the ports on the WSM.
2
Using a Phillips screwdriver, loosen the two captive screws that secure the
WSM to the chassis (Figure 22 on page 67 and Figure 23 on page 67).

Installing the WSM
Turning on the chassis power
Although you can install or replace modules in an operating chassis, in a new
installation you may prefer to install all the modules before turning on the chassis
power.
To turn on the chassis power:
1
Verify that all power cords are connected properly, as described in the
installation instructions for the power supplies.
2
Turn all the power switches to the On position.
Note: In a chassis with two power supplies in a nonredundant power
configuration, you must turn on both power supply units within two
seconds of each other. If you wait longer to turn on the second power
supply, both power supplies will shut down. To correct this condition, turn
off both power supplies, wait at least thirty seconds, and then turn on both
power supplies again within two seconds.
Connecting a PC or terminal to the maintenance port
The port labeled “Maint” provides direct terminal access to the WSM. A serial
connection is necessary when performing a serial download of a software image to
the WSM, or when you cannot log into the WSM CLI using the 8600 switch CLI.
When connecting directly to the WSM using the maintenance port, you will have
direct access to the Web OS CLI. You will not see the top level 8600 switch
command line interface. For information about the Web OS CLI, see Web OS
Switch Software 10.0 Command Reference.
To establish a console (DCE) connection with a WSM, you need the serial cable
with the 9-pin receptacle connector (shipped with the WSM). See “Pin
assignments on port connectors” on page 103 for a list of pin assignments.

Managing cables for the 8000 Series chassis
The 8000 Series chassis ships with cable management brackets. The cable
management brackets keep groups of cable clusters fastened and out of the way,
but accessible for maintenance.
To facilitate card installation and removal, bundle the cables for each slot.
Connect, label, and bundle the cables for each module together, then use velcro
straps or sheet fiber wrapped around the cables to organize them along the entire
cable path before you connect cables to another module. Secure the velcro straps
or sheet fiber to brackets with lacing cord or tie wrap.
To manage cables for the 8000 Series chassis:
1
Connect the appropriate cable to the module.
2
Route the cable up to the appropriate cable management bracket and channel
(Figure 34 on page 78 and Figure 35 on page 79).

Connecting to the WSM
To access the WSM, you must have already established a Telnet session or CLI
access to the 8600 switch. For information about configuring the 8600 Series
switch for Telnet access, see Getting Started .
To access the 8600 Series switch CLI remotely, the 8600 Series switch
management port must have an IP address assigned and remote access enabled.
8600 Series switch access policies
You can control access to the 8600 Series switch by creating access policies that
define whether network stations are explicitly allowed or explicitly forbidden to
access the switch, or network stations. For each policy you can also specify the
access level, such as read-only or read/write/all.
Installing the Web Switching Module for the Ethernet Routing Switch 8600
82
Initial Setup
If you have configured access policies on your 8600 Series switch, you must
create and enable an access policy permitting the WSM TFTP access to the 8600
Series switch CPU. This access policy must specify read/write/all
(rwa) access, along with all of the WSM’s management IP addresses installed in
the 8600 chassis. If an access-policy for the WSM is not defined, image copy
operation to the WSM will fail.
For more information, see Configuring and Managing Security.
Logging into the 8600 Series switch
Your login level in the 8600 Series switch CLI determines your access to the
WSM module. Table 14 describes the access levels available when you log into
the 8600 switch.
Table 14 8600 Series switch login access levels

These added 8600 CLI levels provide the necessary granularity
required for mapping 8600 to WSM access levels. Each level provides a
different level of access to the Web OS command line interface.
Table 15 on page 83 defines WSM access levels.
Table 16 on page 84 defines how the access levels are mapped
between the WSM and 8600 command line interfaces.

The following examples assume that the WSM is in slot 1.
Flash to WSM
Image file
ERS-8606:5# copy /flash/wsm100273_mp.img /wsm/1/image1
The file, wsm100273_mp.img is a software image file for the WSM. The file
wsm100273_bin.img is a binary image file for the WSM.
Note: To avoid time-out errors, when copying a new image to a WSM,
first ensure that no traffic is passing through the module.
Note: You cannot copy files from the 8600 to multiple WSMs at the same
time. Instead, copy one file at a time.
Note: You may require an access policy for connecting to the 8600 Series
switch CPU. For more information, see “8600 Series switch access
policies” on page 81.
If you attempt to upgrade to a WSM image that is not compatible with the 8600
Series switch version, the WSM may not initialize correctly and may stall at
booting state. If this happens, you must either reload the old image, or download
the correct image to get the WSM back online. The port labeled Maint provides
direct terminal access to the WSM. A serial connection is necessary when
performing a serial download of a software image to the WSM, or when you
cannot login to the WSM CLI using the 8600 Series switch CLI.
To perform a serial download for the WSM, you need the WSM binary image file.
For information about performing a serial download for the WSM, see Upgrading
to the Ethernet Routing Switch 8600 Series Software Release 4.1.

Command reference
wsmreset command
This command performs a hardware reset on one or all WSMs.
Syntax:
8610:5/wsm# wsmreset <slotId>|"all">
Note: When performing a WSM reset, turn off Device Manager polling.
When the reset completes, turn polling on again. If Device Manager
attempts to poll during a reset, it does not receive a response from the
WSM and times out. This may also interrupt 8600 polling and cause
distortion of the Device Manager graphic.
Note: When resetting a WSM, confirm that its back-facing ports (5-8)
have entered the forwarding state before performing further resets.
setboot command
The setboot command sets the image specified (“image1” or “image2”) as the
currently active boot image for the <slotID> you entered. If you do not specify an
image, the setboot command will return the identity of the current boot image
for all WSMs installed in the 8600 Series switch.
Syntax:
setboot [<slotId>] [<image-choice>]
The Web OS menu system
If you have logged into the 8600 Series switch with RWA access, you can connect
to the Web OS software on the WSM with full administrative privileges.
Figure 41 on page 99 shows the Main menu with administrator privileges.

Command Line history and editing
For a description of global Web OS commands, shortcuts, and command line
editing functions, see Chapter 3, Menu Basics, in the Web OS Switch Software
10.0 Command Reference.
Idle time-out
By default, you are disconnected from the WSM after 900 seconds (15 minutes) of
inactivity. This function is controlled by the telnet time-out parameter (config
cli timeout) in the 8600 CLI. You can set the telnet session timeout value from
30 to 65535 seconds. Generally, the time-out value that you set in the 8600 Series
switch CLI will be the same for the WSM. However, if you configure the time-out
value on the 8600 Series switch to be 3601 seconds or higher, the WSM will time
out at its maximum value 3600 seconds (60 minutes).

Configuring SYSLOG on the WSM
To generate syslog messages from your WSM, configure SYSLOG facility in the
Web OS CLI to match the value configured on your 8600 switch:
1
On the 8600 switch, set up a SYSLOG host and identify the local facility to
be used.
Refer to the config sys syslog commands in Configuring Network
Management and Diagnostics.
2
Connect to the WSM from the 8600 Series switch CLI. In this example,
connect to the WSM in slot 4.
8610:5# wsm connect 4
3
In Web OS, select the SYSLOG menu.
WSM_4 >> Main# /cfg/sys/syslog
4
Specify the local facility 0 to 7.
Set the facility to match the facility defined on the 8600 switch in order for
the messages to be sent to the system log.
WSM_4 >> Syslog# facil <syslog host local facility, 0-7>
5
Apply and Save.
WSM_4 >> Syslog# apply
