retrieve the dump that was produced. Support engineers may require the
information contained in the dump file to diagnose the cause of the problem.
„
FATAL – Indicates that a non-recoverable system problem has occurred.
The user should reboot the system or component and verify that the
subsystem is fully functional to determine whether the fault has been
corrected. If the problem persists, the user should contact the supplier.
„
ERROR – Indicates that a serious system error has occurred which might be
recoverable. If the system exhibits any instability, the user should reboot the
system or component. If errors persist, the user should immediately contact
the supplier's technical support.

ALARM – Indicates that a serious problem has occurred which degrades
capacity or service. If the error is recoverable, the user should correct the
failure. If the alarm/failure persists, the user should reboot the system at a
convenient time. If the problem is still not cleared, the user should contact
the supplier.
„
WARNING – Indicates that a recoverable problem has occurred. The user
does not need to take action.
„
PARTIAL – When more information is available, Partial causes additional
message-related details to be displayed.
„
CONFIGURATION – An informational message indicating changes that a
user has made to the system configuration. The user does not need to take
any action.
„
INFO – Informational messages that occur during a system or component
boot. The user does not need to take any action.
„
PERIODIC – An informational message containing periodic statistics. The
user does not need to take action.
„
NOTICE – Notice is used for failures that could be a result of “frequent” user
actions, such as a server reboot.
Debug message levels 1 through 5:
Debug messages are for supplier
and/or QLogic engineering use and are not necessarily indicative of actions that
an end user may need to take.
„
DEBUG1 – Messages that describe the states of connections and links.
„
DEBUG2 – Messages that describe major configuration changes or
operations.
„
DEBUG3 – Messages that describe the I/O flow.
„
DEBUG4 – Messages that contain the packet dumps within an I/O flow. I/O
flows contain multiple packets.
„
DEBUG5 – Messages that contain the packet dumps within an I/O flow. I/O
flows contain multiple packets.
Important: When configuring the log levels to display debug messages, care
should be taken to ensure that system performance issues are weighed against
troubleshooting requirements. Generally, the higher the debug number the more
information is written to the log. Specifically, debug 3-5 have the most effect on
system performance.

LDAP Configuration
The lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP) configuration feature allows the
user to set and configure authentications for the switch. The LDAP service resides
on a server that has access to a usercode and password database.
On the 12000 switches with LDAP enabled, when a user attempts to login to
either Chassis Viewer or the CLI, the LDAP client intercepts the login attempt and
rather than authenticating internally, encrypts and packages the information in an
LDAP packet and sends it to a pre-configured LDAP server over TCP/IP (i.e., the
out of band LAN). The LDAP server receives the request, passes it on to the
authentication services, and responds to the client with a yes or no, either allowing
or denying the user access to the box.
When LDAP is disabled internal authentication becomes the default.
To setup LDAP authentication:
1.
From the menu, select Maintenance.
The LDAP Configuration button is displayed (Figure 1-33).

HTTP/CLI Session Configuration
The hyper text transfer protocol (HTTP) and command line interface (CLI) session
configuration feature allows the user to set HTTP and CLI session time out
parameters, as well as set security requirements for the switch.
The session time out duration is the length of time that a session remains active if
there is no GUI activity. If a session is inactive for a time exceeding the time out
duration, the user will be logged out.
