Preface
General Precautions for Rack-Mountable Products
Observe the following precautions for rack stability and safety. Also, refer to the rack installation
documentation accompanying the system and the rack for specific caution statements and procedures.
Systems are considered to be components in a rack. Thus, “component” refers to any system as well as
to various peripherals or supporting hardware.
WARNING!
Installing systems in a rack without the front and side stabilizers installed could cause the rack to tip over,
potentially resulting in bodily injury under certain circumstances. Therefore, always install the stabilizers before
installing components in the rack. After installing system/components in a rack, never pull more than one
component out of the rack on its slide assemblies at one time. The weight of more than one extended component
could cause the rack to tip over and may result in serious injury.
●
Before working on the rack, make sure that the stabilizers are secured to the rack, extended to the
floor, and that the full weight of the rack rests on the floor. Install front and side stabilizers on a
single rack or front stabilizers for joined multiple racks before working on the rack.
●
Always load the rack from the bottom up, and load the heaviest item in the rack first.
●
Make sure that the rack is level and stable before extending a component from the rack.
●
Use caution when pressing the component rail release latches and sliding a component into or out of
a rack; the slide rails can pinch your fingers.
●
After a component is inserted into the rack, carefully extend the rail into a locking position, and then
slide the component into the rack.
●
Do not overload the AC supply branch circuit that provides power to the rack. The total rack load
should not exceed 80 percent of the branch circuit rating.
●
Ensure that proper airflow is provided to components in the rack.
●
Do not step on or stand on any component when servicing other components in a rack.
NOTE
A qualified electrician must perform all connections to DC power and to safety grounds. All electrical
wiring must comply with applicable local, regional or national codes and practices.
WARNING!
Never defeat the ground conductor or operate the equipment in the absence of a suitably installed
ground conductor. Contact the appropriate electrical inspection authority or an electrician if uncertain that
suitable grounding is available.
WARNING!
The system chassis must be positively grounded to the rack cabinet frame. Do not attempt to connect
power to the system until grounding cables are connected. Completed power and safety ground wiring must be

Protecting Against Electrostatic Discharge
inspected by a qualified electrical inspector. An energy hazard will exist if the safety ground cable is omitted or
disconnected.
Protecting Against Electrostatic Discharge
Static electricity can harm delicate components inside the system. To prevent static damage, discharge
static electricity from your body before touching any of the electronic components, such as the
microprocessor. This can be done by periodically touching an unpainted metal surface on the chassis.
The following steps can also be taken prevent damage from electrostatic discharge (ESD):
1 When unpacking a static-sensitive component from its shipping carton, do not remove the
component from the antistatic packing material until ready to install the component in the system.
Just before unwrapping the antistatic packaging, be sure to discharge static electricity from your
body.
2 When transporting a sensitive component, first place it in an antistatic container or packaging.
3 Handle all sensitive components in a static-safe area. If possible, use antistatic floor pads, workbench
pads and an antistatic grounding strap.

Introduction to
Switch Management
CHAPTER
Management Options
This system may be managed out-of-band through the console port on the front panel or in-band using
Telnet. The user may also choose the Web-based management, accessible through a Web browser.
Web-Based Management Interface
After successfully installing the switch, the user can configure the switch, monitor the LED panel, and
display statistics graphically using a Web browser, such as Microsoft® Internet Explorer (version 5.5 and
later), Netscape (version 8 and later), Mozilla Firefox (version 2.0 and later), Safari (version 4.0 and
later), and Google Chrome (version 6.0 and later).
SNMP-Based Management
The switch can be managed with an SNMP-compatible console program. The switch supports SNMP
version 1.0, version 2.0 and version 3.0. The SNMP agent decodes the incoming SNMP messages and
responds to requests with MIB objects stored in the database. The SNMP agent updates the MIB objects
to generate statistics and counters.
Command Line Interface Through the Serial Port or Remote Telnet
The user can also connect a computer or terminal to the serial console port to access the switch. The
command line interface provides complete access to all switch management features.
Connecting the Console Port
The front panel of the switch provides a port that enables a connection to a computer monitoring and
configuring the switch. The console port is an RJ-45 port and requires a special cable that is included
with the switch, to establish the physical connection.
To use the console port, the following equipment is needed:
●
A terminal or a computer with both an RS-232 serial port and the ability to emulate a terminal.
●
A console cable with a male DB-9 connector on one end and an RJ-45 connection on the other. This
cable should be included with the switch. It establishes the physical connection to the console port.

Chapter 4: Introduction to Switch Management
To connect a terminal to the console port:
Connect the male DB-9 connector on the console cable (shipped with the switch) to the RS-232 serial
port on the computer running terminal emulation software then insert the RJ-45 connector into the RJ-45
console port on the front of the switch. Set the terminal emulation software as follows:
●
Select the appropriate serial port (COM port 1 or COM port 2).
●
Set the data rate to 9600 baud.
●
Set the data format to 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, and no parity.
●
Set flow control to None.
●
Under Properties, select VT100 for Emulation mode.
●
Select Terminal keys for Function, Arrow and Ctrl keys. Make sure to use Terminal keys (not
Windows keys) are selected.
NOTE
When using HyperTerminal with the Microsoft® Windows® 2000 operating system, ensure that Windows
2000 Service Pack 2 or later is installed. Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 allows use of arrow keys in
HyperTerminal's VT100 emulation. See www.microsoft.com for information on Windows 2000 service packs.
●
After you have correctly set up the terminal, plug the power cable into the power receptacle on the
back of the switch. The boot sequence appears in the terminal.
●
After the boot sequence completes, the console login screen displays.
●
If the user has not logged into the command line interface (CLI) program, press the Enter key at the
User name and password prompts. There is no default user name and password for the switch. The
administrator must first create user names and passwords. If user accounts have been previously set
up, log in and continue to configure the switch.
●
Enter the commands to complete desired tasks. Many commands require administrator-level access
privileges. Read the next section for more information on setting up user accounts. See the EAS 20024p CLI Manual for a list of all commands and additional information on using the CLI.
●
To end a management session, use the logout command or close the emulator program.
If problems occur in making this connection on a PC, make sure the emulation is set to VT-100. The
emulation settings can be configured by clicking on the File menu in the HyperTerminal window by
clicking on Properties in the drop-down menu, and then clicking the Settings tab. This is where you will
find the Emulation options. If you still do not see anything, try rebooting the switch by disconnecting
its power supply.
Once connected to the console, the screen on the next page will appear on the console. This is where the
user will enter commands to perform all the available management functions. The switch will prompt
the user to enter a user name and a password. Upon the initial connection, there is no user name or
password and therefore just press Enter twice to access the command line interface.

First Time Connecting to the Switch
The switch supports user-based security that can allow prevention of unauthorized users from accessing
the switch or changing its settings. This section tells how to log onto the switch via out-of-band console
connection or out-of-band Management port connection.
Upon initial connection to the switch, the login screen appears (see example below).

commands after the command prompt EAS 200-24p:admin#
The default username for this switch is admin, and there is no password.
NOTE
The first user automatically gets Administrator level privileges. At least one Admin-level user account must
be created for the switch.
Extreme Networks EAS 200-24p Switch Hardware Installation Manual
27
Chapter 4: Introduction to Switch Management
Password Protection
One of the first tasks when settings up the switch is to create user accounts. Logging in using a
predefined administrator-level user name will give the user privileged access to the switch's
management software.
After the initial login, define new passwords for both default user names to prevent unauthorized
access to the switch, and record the passwords for future reference.
To create an administrator-level account for the switch, do the following:
1 At the CLI login prompt, enter create account admin followed by the <user name> and press the
Enter key.
2 The switch will then prompt the user to provide a password. Type the <password> used for the
administrator account being created and press the Enter key.
3 Once entered, the switch will again ask the user to enter the same password again to verify it. Type
the same password and press the Enter key.
4 A “Success” response by the switch will verify the creation of the new administrator.
NOTE
Passwords are case sensitive. User names and passwords can be up to 15 characters in length.
IP Address Assignment
An IP address must be assigned to each switch, which is used for communication with an SNMP
network manager or other TCP/IP application (for example BOOTP, TFTP). The switch's default IP
address is 0.0.0.0. The user may change the default switch IP address to meet the specification of your
networking address scheme.
The switch is also assigned a unique MAC address by the factory. This MAC address cannot be
changed, and can be found by entering the command show switch into the command line interface.
The switch's MAC address also appears in the Device Information and System Information windows
of the Web-based management interface. The IP address for the switch must be set before using the
Web-based manager. The switch IP address can be automatically set using BOOTP or DHCP protocols,
in which case the actual address assigned to the switch must be known.
SNMP Settings
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is an OSI Layer 7 (Application Layer) designed
specifically for managing and monitoring network devices. SNMP enables network management
stations to read and modify the settings of gateways, routers, switches and other network devices. Use
SNMP to configure system features for proper operation, monitor performance and detect potential
problems in the switch, switch group or network.
Managed devices that support SNMP include software (referred to as an agent), which runs locally on
the device. A defined set of variables (managed objects) is maintained by the SNMP agent and used to
manage the device. These objects are defined in a Management Information Base (MIB), which provides
Extreme Networks EAS 200-24p Switch Hardware Installation Manual
28
Password Protection
a standard presentation of the information controlled by the on-board SNMP agent. SNMP defines both
the format of the MIB specifications and the protocol used to access this information over the network.
The switch supports SNMP versions 1, 2c, and 3. The administrator may specify which version of
SNMP to use to monitor and control the switch. The three versions of SNMP vary in the level of
security provided between the management station and the network device.
In SNMP v1 and v2, user authentication is accomplished using 'community strings', which function like
passwords. The remote user SNMP application and the switch SNMP must use the same community
string. SNMP packets from any station that has not been authenticated are ignored (dropped).
The default community strings for the switch used for SNMP v1 and v2 management access are:
●
public - Allows authorized management stations to retrieve MIB objects.
●
private - Allows authorized management stations to retrieve and modify MIB objects.
SNMP v3 uses a more sophisticated authentication process that is separated into two parts. The first
part is to maintain a list of users and their attributes that are allowed to act as SNMP managers. The
second part describes what each user on that list can do as an SNMP manager.
The switch allows groups of users to be listed and configured with a shared set of privileges. The
SNMP version may also be set for a listed group of SNMP managers. Thus, a group of SNMP managers
can be created to view read-only information or receive traps using SNMP v1 while assigning a higher
level of security to another group, granting read/write privileges using SNMP v3.
Using SNMP v3 individual users or groups of SNMP managers can be allowed to perform or be
restricted from performing specific SNMP management functions. The functions allowed or restricted
are defined using the Object Identifier (OID) associated with a specific MIB. An additional layer of
security is available for SNMP v3 in that SNMP messages may be encrypted.
Traps
Traps are messages that alert network personnel of events that occur on the switch. The events can be as
serious as a reboot (someone accidentally turned OFF the switch), or less serious like a port status
change. The switch generates traps and sends them to the trap recipient (or network manager). Typical
traps include trap messages for Authentication Failure, Topology Change and Broadcast/Multicast
Storm.
MIBs
The switch in the Management Information Base (MIB) stores management and counter information.
The switch uses the standard MIB-II Management Information Base module. Consequently, values for
MIB objects can be retrieved from any SNMP-based network management software. In addition to the
standard MIB-II, the switch also supports its own proprietary enterprise MIB as an extended
Management Information Base. The proprietary MIB may also be retrieved by specifying the MIB Object
Identifier. MIB values can be either read-only or read-write.

Web-Based
Switch Configuration
CHAPTER
Introduction
All software functions of the switch can be managed, configured, and monitored via the embedded
Web-based (HTML) interface. Manage the switch from remote stations anywhere on the network
through a standard browser, such as Internet Explorer (version 5.5 and later), Netscape (version 8.0 and
later), Mozilla Firefox (version 2.0 and later), Safari (version 4.0 and later), or Google Chrome (version
6.0 and later). The browser acts as a universal access tool and can communicate directly with the switch
using the HTTP protocol.
The Web-based management module and the Console program (and Telnet) are different ways to access
the same internal switching software and configure it. Thus, all settings encountered in web-based
management are the same as those found in the console program.
Logging onto the Web Manager
To begin managing the switch, simply run the browser installed on your computer and point it to the IP
address you have defined for the device. For this example we’ll use the IP address 192.168.69.123/24.
The URL in the address bar should read something like: http://192.168.69.123, where the number 123
represent the IP address of the switch.
