SAFETY INFORMATION
CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS
THE FE-100F3 FAST ETHERNET INTERFACE MODULE, FPIM-05 AND FPIM-07
FDDI PORT INTERFACE MODULES, AND APIM-29 ATM PORT INTERFACE MODULE
USE CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS. READ THE FOLLOWING
SAFETY INFORMATION BEFORE INSTALLING OR OPERATING THESE MODULES.
The Class 1 laser transceivers use an optical feedback loop to maintain Class 1 operation limits. This control loop eliminates
the need for maintenance checks or adjustments. The output is factory set, and does not allow any user adjustment. Class 1
Laser transceivers comply with the following safety standards:
• 21 CFR 1040.10 and 1040.11 U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (FDA).
• IEC Publication 825 (International Electrotechnical Commission).
• CENELEC EN 60825 (European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization).
When operating within their performance limitations, laser transceiver output meets the Class 1 accessible emission limit of
all three standards. Class 1 levels of laser radiation are not considered hazardous.
SAFETY INFORMATION
CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS
LASER RADIATION AND CONNECTORS
When the connector is in place, all laser radiation remains within the fiber. The maximum amount of radiant power exiting the
fiber (under normal conditions) is -12.6 dBm or 55 x 10-6 watts.
Removing the optical connector from the transceiver allows laser radiation to emit directly from the optical port. The
maximum radiance from the optical port (under worst case conditions) is 0.8 W cm-2 or 8 x 103 W m2 sr-1.
Do not use optical instruments to view the laser output. The use of optical instruments to view laser output increases
eye hazard. When viewing the output optical port, power must be removed from the network adapter.

Specifications
This guide and other XP documentation refers to the XP’s Layer-2 (L2), Layer-3 (L3), and
Layer-4 (L4) switching and routing. These layers are based on the International Standards
Organization (ISO) 7-layer reference model. Here is an example of that model. The XP
operates within the layers that are not shaded. Notice that Layer 2 is divided into an LLC
layer and a MAC layer. The XP operates at the MAC layer but not the LLC layer.

Bridging
The XP provides the following types of wire-speed bridging:
•
Address-based bridging – The XP performs this type of bridging by looking up the
destination address in an L2 lookup table on the line card that receives the bridge
packet from the network. The L2 lookup table indicates the exit port(s) for the bridged
packet. If the packet is addressed to the XP’s own MAC address, the packet is routed
rather than bridged.
•
Flow-based bridging – The XP performs this type of bridging by looking up an entry
in the L2 lookup table containing both the source and destination addresses of the
bridge packet.
Your choice of bridging method does not affect XP performance. However, address-based
bridging is more efficient because it requires fewer table entries while flow-based
bridging provides tighter management and control over bridged traffic.
The XP ports perform address-based bridging by default but can be configured to perform
flow-based bridging, instead of address-based bridging, on a per-port basis. A port cannot
be configured to perform both types of bridging at the same time.
Enterasys Xpedition 8000/8600 Getting Started Guide

Features
Port and Protocol VLANs
The XP supports the following types of Virtual LANs (VLANs):
•
Port-based VLANs – A port-based VLAN is a set of ports that comprises a Layer-2
broadcast domain. The XP confines MAC-layer broadcasts to the ports in the VLAN on
which the broadcast originates. XP ports outside the VLAN do not receive the
broadcast.
•
Protocol-based VLANs – A protocol-based VLAN is a named set of ports that
comprises an IP or IPX broadcast domain. The XP confines IP or IPX broadcasts to the
ports within the IP or IPX based VLAN. Protocol-based VLANs sometimes are called
subnet VLANs or Layer-3 VLANs.
You can include the same port in more than one VLAN, even in both port-based and
protocol-based VLANs. Moreover, you can define VLANs that span across multiple XPs.
To simplify VLAN administration, the XP supports 802.1Q trunk ports, which allow you
to use a single port to “trunk” traffic from multiple VLANs to another XP or switch which
supports 802.1Q.
Routing
The XP provides wire-speed routing for the following protocols:
•
Internet Protocol (IP) – protocol that switching and routing devices use for moving
traffic within the Internet and within many corporate intranets
•
Internet Packet Exchange (IPX) – protocol by Novell used in NetWare products
Note:
All other protocols that require routing must be tunneled using IP.
By default, the XP uses one MAC address for all interfaces. The XP can be configured to
have a separate MAC address for each IP interface and a separate MAC address for each
IPX interface. When the XP receives a packet whose destination MAC address is one of the
XP’s IP or IPX interface MAC addresses, the line card that received the packet from the
network uses information in the line card’s L3 lookup tables (or information supplied by
the control module) to route the packet to its IP destination(s). (See Control Module on
page 12 for information about the control module.)
You can create only one IP and IPX interface on a single port or VLAN. You can add
secondary IP addresses to the same IP interface. When you add an interface to a set of
ports, you are adding a VLAN to those ports. Ports that contain IP and IPX interfaces can
also still perform Layer-2 bridging.
6
Enterasys Xpedition 8000/8600 Getting Started Guide
Features
IP Routing
The XP supports the following IP unicast routing protocols:
•
RIP v1 and RIP v2
•
OSPF v2
•
BGP 2,3,4
IP interfaces do not use a specific routing protocol by default. When you configure an
interface for routing, you also specify the routing protocol the interface will use.
IP Multicast Routing
The XP supports the following IP multicast routing protocols:
•
IGMP
•
DVMRP
The XP does not use a specific IP Multicast routing protocol by default. When you
configure an interface for IP Multicast, you also specify the routing protocol you want the
interface to use.
IPX Routing
The XP supports the following IPX routing protocols:
•
IPX RIP – a version of the Routing Information Protocol (RIP) tailored for IPX
•
IPX SAP – the Service Advertisement Protocol, which allows hosts attached to an IPX
network to reach printers, file servers, and other services
By default, IPX routing is enabled on the XP when an IPX interface is created.
Layer-4 Switching
In addition to Layer-2 bridging and Layer-3 routing, the XP performs Layer-4 switching.
Layer-4 switching is based on applications and flows.
•
Layer-4 applications – The XP understands the application for which an IP or IPX
packet contains data and therefore enables you to manage and control traffic on an
application basis. For IP traffic, the XP looks at the packet’s TCP or UDP port number
to determine the application. For IPX packets, the XP looks at the destination socket to
determine the application.
•
Layer-4 flows – The XP can store Layer-4 flows on each line card. A Layer-4 flow
consists of the source and destination addresses in the IP or IPX packet combined with
Enterasys Xpedition 8000/8600 Getting Started Guide
7
Features
the TCP or UDP source and destination port number (for IP) or the source and
destination socket (for IPX). You can therefore manage and control individual flows
between hosts on an individual application basis.
A single host can have many individual Layer-4 entries in the XP. For example, an IP host
might have separate Layer-4 application entries for E-mail, FTP, HTTP, and so on, or
separate Layer-4 flow entries for specific E-mail destinations and for specific FTP and Web
connections.
Security
The bridging, routing, and application (Layer-2, Layer-3, and Layer-4) support described
in previous sections enables you to implement security filters that meet specific needs.
You can implement the following types of filters to secure traffic on the XP.
•
Layer-2 source filters (block bridge traffic based on source MAC address)
•
Layer-2 destination filters (block bridge traffic based on destination MAC address)
•
Layer-2 flow filters (block bridge traffic based on specific source-destination pairs)
•
Layer-3 source filters (block IP or IPX traffic based on source IP or IPX address)
•
Layer-3 destination filters (block IP or IPX traffic based on destination IP or IPX
address)
•
Layer-3 flow filters (block IP or IPX traffic based on specific source-destination pairs)
•
Layer-4 flow filters (block traffic based on application flows)
•
Layer-4 application filters (block traffic based on UDP or TCP source and destination
ports for IP or source and destination sockets for IPX)
Quality of Service
Although the XP supplies non-blocking wire-speed throughput, you can configure the XP
to apply Quality of Service (QoS) policies during peak periods to guarantee service to
specific hosts, applications, and flows (source-destination pairs). This is especially useful
in networks where the traffic level can exceed the network medium’s capacity.
The XP QoS is based on four queues: control, high, medium, and low. Control traffic has
the highest priority, high the second highest, and so on. The default priority for all traffic
is low.
8
Enterasys Xpedition 8000/8600 Getting Started Guide
Hardware Overview
You can configure QoS policies for the following types of traffic:
•
Layer-2 prioritization (802.1p)
•
Layer-3 source-destination flows
•
Layer-4 source-destination flows
•
Layer-4 application flows
Statistics
The XP can provide extensive statistical data on demand. You can access the following
types of statistics:
•
Layer-2 RMON and MIB II Statistics – Port statistics for normal packets and for errors
(packets in, packets out, CRC errors, and so on)
•
Layer-3 RMON v2 Statistics – Statistics for ICMP, IP, IP-interface, IP routing, IP
multicast, VLAN
•
Layer-4 RMON v2 Statistics – Statistics for TCP and UDP
Management Platforms
You can manage the XP using the following management platforms:
•
Command Line Interface (CLI) – An Emacs editor-like interface that accepts typed
commands and responds when applicable with messages or tables. You will use the
CLI to perform the basic setup procedures described in Chapter 3 of this guide.
•
SNMP MIBs and traps – The XP supports SNMP v1 and many standard networking
MIBs. You access the XP’s SNMP agent using integration software for HP OpenView
5.x on Windows NT or Solaris 2.x, or Enterasys SPECTRUM on Solaris 2.x. Chapter 3
in this guide explains how to set up SNMP on the XP.

Figure 2. Front view of a fully loaded XP-8600 chassis
The XP-8600 chassis contains sixteen slots, numbered from 0 to 15. Slot 0 is in the lower
left corner of the chassis and slot 15 is in the upper right corner. The XP-8600 also has slots
for primary and redundant switching fabric modules.
Enterasys Xpedition 8000/8600 Getting Started Guide
11
Hardware Overview
On both the XP-8000 and XP-8600, slot 0 is labeled “CM” and contains the primary control
module. The CM slot cannot be used for line cards. The primary control module must be
installed in this slot. The CM/1 slot can contain a redundant control module (if you install
one) or can contain a line card. Slots 2 to 7 on the XP-8000 or slots 2 to 15 on the XP-8600
can contain any line cards. (See Control Module on page 12 and Line Cards on page 18 for
information about these items.)
You can install line cards in any order in the slots. For example, you could install line cards
in slots 2 and 5 and leave the other line card slots empty. The XP provides non-blocking
throughput regardless of the software features you are using. Therefore, you do not need
to “load balance” line cards by placing them in certain relationships to balance the load on
the backplane. Regardless of where you install the line cards, the backplane can provide
full, non-blocking throughput.
Backplane
The backplane occupies the rear of the chassis and connects the power supplies, control
modules, and line cards together. The power supplies use the backplane to provide power
to the rest of the system. The line cards and control modules use the backplane to
exchange control information and packets. The backplane is installed at the factory.
Contact Enterasys Networks if you wish to replace the backplane.
Fan Module
The XP contains a fan module to provide a cooling air flow across the control module(s)
and line cards. The fan module is located on the left side of the control modules and line
cards. The XP-8000 fan module contains two fans; the XP-8600 fan module contains six
fans. The fan module is installed at the factory, but you can replace the module yourself, if
necessary.
Note:
To ensure that the fan module can provide adequate cooling, always provide a
minimum of 3 inches of clearance on each side of the chassis.
Control Module
The control module is the XP’s central processing unit. It contains system-wide bridging
and routing tables. Traffic that does not yet have an entry in the L2 and L3/L4 lookup
tables on individual line cards is sent to the control module. After processing traffic, the
control module updates the L2 and L3/L4 tables on the line cards that received the traffic.
The line cards thus “learn” about how to forward traffic.

Boot Flash
The control module has a boot flash containing the XP’s boot software and configuration
files. The system software image file resides on a PC card or a TFTP server.
Memory Module
The control module uses memory to hold the routing tables and other tables. The
minimum factory configuration for the control module includes 64MB of memory (in a
64MB DIMM). You can obtain XP memory upgrade kits from Enterasys Networks to
increase memory to 128MB (in a 128MB DIMM), 192MB (in one 64MB DIMM and one
128MB DIMM), or 256MB (in two 128MB DIMMs). See Installing a Memory Upgrade on
page 60 for the upgrade procedure.

Hardware Overview
External Controls
The control module has the following external controls. Where appropriate, this guide
describes how to use the controls.
•
Male DB-9 Data Communications Equipment (DCE) port for serial connection from a
management terminal. Use this port to establish a direct CLI connection to the XP. The
default baud rate is 9600.
•
10/100Base-TX Data Terminal Equipment (DTE) port for network (“in-band”)
connection from a management terminal. The port is configured as a Media Data
Interface (MDI). Use this port to establish a management connection to the XP over a
local or bridged Ethernet segment.
•
Reset switch (RST). Use this switch to reboot the XP’s CPU.
•
PC flash memory slots. These slots let you install system image software upgrades as
well as older system image software versions.
Note:
You can install a PC card in either slot but you cannot use two PC cards at the
same time.
AC Power Supply
The power supply delivers 3.3, 5, and 12 DC volts to the XP’s control module(s), fan
modules, and other components. A single power supply provides enough current to
operate a fully configured chassis. The power supply has its own internal cooling fan. The
vent on the front of the power supply is the inlet vent for the cooling fan.

To ensure against equipment failure, you can install a redundant power supply. When two
power supplies are active in the XP, they load share, each supply delivering
approximately 50 percent of the current needed. Moreover, if one of the power supplies
fails, the other power supply immediately assumes the entire load, thus preventing any
system outage.
The AC power supply has a green status LED. When the LED is lit, the power supply is
connected to an appropriate power source and is active. The status LED is lit when you
switch the power supply on, not when you plug the power supply into a power source.

LEDs
The 10/100Base-TX (T-Series) line card uses the following LEDs.
LED
Description
Offline
When lit, this amber LED on the left side of the line card
indicates that the line card is offline (powered off) and is ready
for hot swap.
The Offline LED also is lit briefly during a reboot or reset of the
XP and goes out as soon as the control module discovers and
properly initializes the line card.
Online
When lit, this green LED indicates that the line card is online
and is ready to receive, process, and send packets if configured
to do so.
Link
Each port has two LEDs on its connector. The green LED on
the left side of the connector indicates the link status. When
this LED is lit, the port hardware is detecting that a cable is
plugged into the port and the port has established
communication with the device at the other end.
Activity
The amber LED on the right side of each port connector flashes
each time the port’s transceiver sends or receives packets.
100Base-FX Line Cards (Multimode Fiber-optic Cable)
The 100Base-FX line cards provide the same features as the 10/100Base-TX line card but
use multimode fiber-optic cable (MMF) to connect to the network. The MMF line cards are
available in 4 MB and 16 MB versions. Figure 11 shows the front panel of the 4 MB

ground. The DC supply is designed to be powered by a 48-volt DC source.
Internally, the XP-8600 DC power supply consists of two separate power supplies. Each of
these internal power supplies must be energized to produce sufficient power for the XP8600 to operate. Each internal power supply is connected to source power through a pair
of positive (+) and negative (-) wiring lugs on the wiring block. Figure 28 shows the
internal relationship of the wiring lugs of the XP-8600 DC power supply.
Note:
For the XP-8600 to work properly, both positive (+) terminals and both negative
(-) terminals of the XP-8600 DC power supply MUST be connected to the DC
source.

Because of the XP-8600 DC supply current requirements, each pole of the 48 Volt DC
source should use 6 gauge wire. Each 6 gauge wire can be divided into two 12 gauge wires
by using a conductive splitter-block. This creates two 12 gauge wires carrying positive (+)
current and two 12 gauge wires carrying negative current. In turn, both 12 gauge positive
(+) wires and both 12 gauge negative (-) wires are connected to the XP-8600 DC power
supply wiring block. See Figure 29.

Lock down the left and right metal tabs to secure the switching fabric module to the
chassis.
4.
Use the #2 Phillips screwdriver to tighten the captive screws on each side of the
switching fabric to secure the switching fabric to the chassis.
Installing the Line Cards
You can install line cards in slots 1 to 7 (or 1 to 15 on the XP-8600). If you also plan to
install a redundant control module, you can install line cards in slots 2 to 7 (2 to 15 on the
XP-8600). You will need a #2 Phillips screwdriver to perform this procedure.
Warning: The XP supports hot swapping. This means you can remove and insert line cards
while the XP is operating. However, you should not insert tools or body parts inside the
chassis while it is powered on. Doing so can cause electrical shock or equipment damage.
For more information on hot swapping, see Hot Swapping Line Cards and Control Modules
in the The TeraLink 2000 Series Library: User Reference.
Figure 34 shows an example of how to install a line card. The procedure following the

does not allow you to display SNMP, filter, and access control list information or make
other configuration changes. You are in User mode when the command prompt ends
with the “>”character.
•
Enable – Allows you to display SNMP, filter, and access control information as well as
all the information you can display in User mode. To enter Enable mode, enter the
enable command, then supply the password when prompted. When you are in Enable
mode, the command prompt ends with the “#” character.
•
Configure – Allows you to make configuration changes. To enter Configure mode, first
enter Enable mode (enable command), then enter the configure command from the
Enable command prompt. When you are in Configure mode, the command prompt
ends with “(config).”
•
Boot – This mode appears when the XP, external flash card, or the system image is not
found during bootup. You should enter the reboot command to reset the XP. If the XP
still fails to boot, contact Enterasys Networks. (See Technical Support on page 101.)
Note:
The command prompt will show the name of the XP in front of the mode
character(s). The default name is “xp.” The procedure in Setting the Basic System
Information on page 82 describes how to change the system name.
When you are in Configure or Enable mode, use the exit command or press Ctrl+Z to exit
to the previous access mode.
Note:
80
When you exit Configure mode, the CLI will ask you whether you want to
activate the configuration commands you have issued. If you type Y (Yes), the
configuration commands you issued are placed into effect and the XP’s
configuration is changed accordingly. However, the changes are not written to the
Startup configuration file in the control module’s boot flash and therefore are not
reinstated after a reboot. See Activating the Configuration Changes and Saving the
Configuration File on page 94 for information about saving configuration changes.

Setting the Basic System Information
Setting the Basic System Information
Use the procedure in this section to set the following system information:
•
System time and date
•
System name
•
System location
•
Contact name (the person to contact regarding this XP)
•
IP address for the management port on the control module
Note:
Some of the commands in this procedure accept a string value. String values can
be up to a maximum of 255 characters in length including blank spaces. Surround
strings that contain blanks with quotation marks (for example: “string with
internal blanks”).
1.
Enter the enable command to get to Enable mode in the CLI.
2.
Enter the following commands to set the system time and date and then verify the
setting:
system set date year <number> month <month-name> day <day>
hour <hour> minute <minute> second <second>
system show date
Here is an example:
ssr# system set date year 2001 month june day 18 hour 11 minute 54 second 0
Time changed to: Mon Jun 18 11:54:00 2001
ssr# system show date
Current time: Mon Jun 18 11:54:04 2001
3.
Enter the configure command to get to Configure mode in the CLI. The following
commands can be entered only from Configure mode.
4.
Enter the following commands to set the system name, location, and contact
information:
system set name “<string>”
system set location “<string>”
system set contact “<string>”
Here is an example:
ssr(config)# system set name “xp“
ssr(config)# system set location “Houston, TX”
ssr(config)# system set contact “John Smith”
82
Enterasys Xpedition 8000/8600 Getting Started Guide
Setting the Basic System Information
5.
Use the interface add ip command to set the IP address and netmask for the en0
Ethernet interface. The en0 Ethernet interface is used by the management port on the
control module.
Here is an example:
ssr(config)# interface add ip en0 address-netmask 16.50.11.22/16
Note:
6.
The en0 interface is automatically created by the system and is reserved for the
management port on the control module.
When you enter commands in Configure mode, the XP does not immediately execute
the commands, but instead checks the syntax of the commands. If the commands are
syntactically correct, the XP stores them in the scratchpad, a temporary storage area in
the memory. The scratchpad is cleared when you log out of the XP, so you must
activate the changes and then save them to the Startup configuration file to retain the
changes, as explained below.
The scratchpad allows you to make configuration changes without worrying about the
order in which you issue the commands. Also, if you change your mind about
configuration changes you are making, you do not need to incrementally back out of
the changes. You simply choose not to activate them. As you become more familiar
with the XP and the CLI and begin to make detailed configuration changes, you may
find the scratchpad quite useful. For simple changes such as the ones in this procedure,
you might instead want to activate the changes as you go, then use CLI commands to
view the results of the changes. To show the changes accumulated in the scratchpad,
use the show command. (You must be in Configure mode.)
Here is an example:
ssr(config)# show
-EDIT-I-NOCONFIG, the running system has no configuration
******** Non-committed changes in Scratchpad ********
1*: system set name “xp“
2*: system set location “Houston, TX”
3*: system set contact “John Smith”
7.
To activate commands in the scratchpad such as the set system commands you
entered in previous steps, enter the following command:
save active
The CLI displays the following message:
Do you want to make the changes Active (yes)?
8.
Type yes to activate the changes.
Enterasys Xpedition 8000/8600 Getting Started Guide
83
Setting Up SNMP Community Strings
Note:
9.
If you exit Configure mode (by entering the exit command or pressing
Ctrl+Z), the CLI will ask you whether you want to make the changes in the
scratchpad active.
To display the active configuration, run the following command:
system show active-config
Here is an example:
ssr# system show active-config

1 : system set name “xp“
2 : system set location “Houston, TX”
3 : system set contact “John Smith”
10. Changes in the active configuration take effect on the running system but will not be
restored following a reboot. To ensure that changes are restored following a reboot,
you must save the active database to the Startup configuration file using the following
command:
copy active to startup
11. You must exit back to Enable mode to run the command. (Alternatively, you can enter
the save startup command.)
12. The CLI displays the following message:
Are you sure you want to overwrite the Startup configuration?
13. Type yes to add the active configuration to the Startup configuration file.
See Activating the Configuration Changes and Saving the Configuration File on page 94 for
more information about the scratchpad, active database, and Startup configuration.
Setting Up SNMP Community Strings
To use SNMP to manage the XP, you need to set up an SNMP community on the XP.
Otherwise, the XP’s SNMP agent runs in local trap process mode unless you disable it
using the snmp stop command. In addition, if you want to be able to access the SNMP
traps issued by the XP’s SNMP agent, you need to specify the IP address of the target for
the SNMP traps.
84
Enterasys Xpedition 8000/8600 Getting Started Guide
Setting Up SNMP Community Strings
Use the following procedure to add the SNMP community string and specify the target
for traps.
1.
Ensure that you are in Enable mode by entering the enable command in the CLI.
2.
Ensure that you are in Configure mode by entering the configure command in the
CLI.
3.
Use the following commands to add an SNMP community string and set a target for
the traps.
snmp set community <community-name> privilege read
snmp set target <IP-addr> community <community-name>
Note:
The target IP address must be locally attached to the XP. You cannot specify a
target that is connected to the XP by another router. If the IP address is more
than one hop away from the XP, configure the XP with a static route to the
target so that a cold start trap is sent.
4.
Use the show command to examine the command you have just entered into the
scratchpad.
5.
Use the save active command to activate the commands you entered in the previous
steps.
6.
To verify the changes, use the snmp show all command.
Here is an example of the commands and output for configuring SNMP and saving the
changes.
ssr# config
ssr(config)# snmp set community public privilege read-only
ssr(config)# snmp set target 16.50.11.12 community public

After verifying the SNMP configuration, save the changes to the Startup
configuration file by entering the following command:
copy active to startup
Remember to answer “yes” when the CLI asks you whether you want to overwrite the
Startup configuration.
Setting Up Passwords
You can password-protect CLI access to the XP by setting up passwords for login access
and Enable mode access. Users who have a login password but not an Enable password
can use only the commands available in User mode. Users with an Enable password can
use commands available in the Enable and Configure modes as well as the commands in
User mode.
In addition, you can set up the XP for TACACS, TACACS+, and/or RADIUS
authentication on login and password by a TACACS or RADIUS server. Procedures for
configuring the XP for TACACS and RADIUS can be found in the The TeraLink 2000 Series
Library: User Reference.
Note:
86
If a password is configured for Enable mode, the XP prompts for the password
when you enter the enable command. Otherwise, the XP displays a message
advising you to configure an Enable password, then enters Enable mode. From
Enable mode, you can access Configure mode to make configuration changes.
Enterasys Xpedition 8000/8600 Getting Started Guide
Setting Up Passwords
The default password for each access level is blank. (Simply press Enter or Return without
entering a password.) If you want to add password protection to the CLI, use the
following procedure.
1.
Ensure that you are in Enable mode by entering the enable command in the CLI.
2.
Ensure that you are in Configure mode by entering the configure command in the
CLI.
3.
Type the following command for each password you want to set:
system set password login|enable <string>|none
4.
Use the show command to examine the commands you just entered.
5.
Use the save active command to activate the commands.
6.
Use the system show active-config command to verify the active changes.
Here is an example of the commands in the previous steps:
ssr(config)# system set password login demo
ssr(config)# system set password enable demo
ssr(config)# save active
ssr# exit
ssr# system show active-config

Setting the DNS Domain Name and Address
Caution: Test all the new passwords before saving the active configuration to the Startup
configuration file. As shown in the example above, the passwords are shown in the active
configuration in an encrypted format and will also appear this way in the Startup
configuration.
To keep your passwords secure, the XP does not have a command for displaying
passwords. If you forget a password, you can remove the password by entering the
following command while in Configure mode. (See the Enterasys Xpedition Command Line
Interface Reference Manual for more information.)
system set password login|enable none
Setting the DNS Domain Name and Address
If you want the XP to be able to access a DNS server, use the following procedure to
specify the domain name and IP address for the DNS server.
1.
Ensure that you are in Enable mode by entering the enable command in the CLI.
2.
Ensure that you are in Configure mode by entering the configure command in the
CLI.
3.
If you have not done so already, use the interface add ip command to set the IP
address and netmask for the en0 Ethernet interface. The en0 Ethernet interface is used
by the management port on the control module.
Here is an example:
ssr(config)# interface add ip en0 address-netmask 16.50.11.22/16
Note:
4.
The en0 interface is automatically created by the system and is reserved for the
management port on the control module.
Use the ping command to verify that the XP can reach the DNS server by pinging the
server:
Here is an example:
ssr# ping 16.50.11.12
PING 16.50.11.12 (16.50.11.12): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 16.50.11.12: icmp_seq=0 ttl=255 time=0 ms
--- 16.50.11.12 ping statistics ---
1 packets transmitted, 1 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 0/0/0 ms
88
Enterasys Xpedition 8000/8600 Getting Started Guide
Setting the DNS Domain Name and Address
5.
Enter the following command to specify the domain name for which the DNS
server(s) have authority:
system set dns domain <domain-name>
where <domain-name> is the domain name (for example: mktg.mrb.com).
6.
Enter the following command to “add” the DNS server to the XP:
system set dns server <IP-addr>[,<IP-addr>[,<IP-addr>]]
where <IP-addr> is the IP address of the DNS server. You can specify up to three DNS
servers. Separate the server IP addresses with commas.
7.
Enter the save active command to activate the commands and enter yes to activate the
changes.
Here is an example of the commands above:
ssr# config
ssr(config)# system set dns domain “mktg.mrb.com”
ssr(config)# system set dns server 16.50.11.12
ssr(config)# save active
8.
Enter the system show dns command to verify the new DNS settings:
Here is an example:
ssr# system show dns
DNS domain: mrb.com, DNS server(s): 16.50.11.12
9.
Use the ping command to verify that the XP can resolve the DNS server name into its
IP address:
Here is an example:
ssr# ping xp
PING xp.mktg.mrb.com (16.50.11.22): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 16.50.11.22: icmp_seq=0 ttl=255 time=0 ms

89
Setting the SYSLOG Parameters
Setting the SYSLOG Parameters
The CLI can use SYSLOG messages to communicate the following types of messages to a
SYSLOG server:
•
Fatal – Provide information about events that caused the XP to crash and reset.
•
Error – Provide information about errors.
•
Warning – Provide warnings against invalid configuration information and other
conditions that are not necessarily errors. This is the default.
•
Informational – Provide informational messages such as status messages. The
SYSLOG messages that the control module displays while booting the software and
reading the startup configuration file are examples of Informational messages.
The XP writes the SYSLOG messages to a SYSLOG daemon on UDP port 514. You can set
the CLI to send all or only some of the message types. By default, the CLI sends warning,
error, and fatal messages but not informational messages to the specified SYSLOG server.
Use the following procedure to specify the SYSLOG server and the types of messages you
want the CLI to log on the server.
1.
Ensure that you are in Enable mode by entering the enable command in the CLI.
2.
Use the ping command to verify that the XP can reach the SYSLOG server by pinging
the server:
3.
Ensure that you are in Configure mode by entering the configure command in the
CLI.
4.
Enter the following commands to “add” the SYSLOG server to the XP, set the message
level, and set the SYSLOG facility:
system set syslog server <hostname-or-IP-addr>
system set syslog level fatal|error|warning|info
system set syslog facility <facility-type>
Here is an example:
ssr# config
ssr(config)# system set syslog server 16.50.11.12
ssr(config)# system set syslog level info
ssr(config)# system set syslog facility local0
90

5.
Enter the show command to show the commands you just entered. Because you have
not activated these configuration changes yet, they are listed in the scratchpad section
of the show output. Here is an example. Notice that the other configuration changes
made during this CLI session also are listed. Active changes are listed in the “Running
system configuration section” and unactivated changes are listed in the “Noncommitted changes in Scratchpad” section.

Loading the System Image Software
Loading the System Image Software
By default, the XP boots using the system image software installed on the control
module’s PC flash card. To upgrade the system software and boot using the upgraded
image, use the following procedure.
1.
Display the current boot settings by using the system show version command:
Here is an example:
ssr# system show version

Boot Prom Version : prom-1.1.0.8
Note:
In this example, the location “pc-flash” indicates that the XP is set to use the
factory-installed software on the flash card.
2.
Copy the software upgrade you want to install onto a TFTP server that the XP can
access. (Use the ping command to verify that the XP can reach the TFTP server.)
3.
Enter the following command to copy the software upgrade onto the PC flash card in
the control module:
system image add <IPaddr-of-TFTP-host> <image-file-name>
Here is an example:
ssr# system image add 16.50.11.12 xp40
Downloading image ’xp40’ from host ’16.50.11.12’
to local image xp40 (takes about 3 minutes)

Upgrading the VFS
Upgrading the VFS
A VFS file system called VFS2 is available. VFS2 dramatically decreases the time required
for deleting and adding system images.
Note:
Upgrading the file system to VFS2 will not erase your configuration image.
The VFS2 file system is only compatible with:
•
boot PROM version v.1.1.0.8
•
system image version 3.1 or later
To upgrade the VFS file system to VFS2, perform the following steps:
1.
Upgrade the firmware to release version 3.1 or later.
2.
Upgrade the bootprom to version v.1.1.0.8. See Loading the Boot PROM Software on
page 93 for instructions on upgrading the software.
3.
Reboot.
4.
Press esc during bootup to enter the bootprom mode.
5.
Type pcmakeversion2 to convert your old VFS1 flash card into a new VFS2 file
system.
6.
Reboot.
Activating the Configuration Changes and Saving the
Configuration File
The XP uses three special configuration files:
•
Active – The commands from the Startup configuration file and any configuration
commands that you have made active from the scratchpad (see below).
Caution: The active configuration remains in effect only during the current power cycle. If
you power off or reboot the XP without saving the active configuration changes to the
Startup configuration file, the changes are lost.
94
•
Startup – The configuration file that the XP uses to configure itself when the system is
powered on.
•
Scratchpad – The configuration commands you have entered during a management
session. These commands do not become active until you explicitly activate them.
Because some commands depend on other commands for successful execution, the XP
scratchpad simplifies system configuration by allowing you to enter configuration
commands in any order, even when dependencies exist. When you activate the
commands in the scratchpad, the XP sorts out the dependencies and executes the
command in the proper sequence.
Enterasys Xpedition 8000/8600 Getting Started Guide
Activating the Configuration Changes and Saving the Configuration File
Activating the Configuration Commands in the Scratchpad
The configuration commands you have entered using procedures in this chapter are in the
Scratchpad but have not yet been activated. Use the following procedure to activate the
configuration commands in the scratchpad.
1.
Ensure that you are in Enable mode by entering the enable command in the CLI.
2.
Ensure that you are in Configure mode by entering the configure command in the
CLI.
3.
Enter the following command:
save active
The CLI displays the following message:
Do you want to make the changes Active? [y]
4.
Type y to activate the changes.
Note:
If you exit the Configure mode (by entering the exit command or pressing
Ctrl+Z), the CLI will ask you whether you want to make the changes in the
scratchpad active.
Saving the Active Configuration to the Startup Configuration File
After you save the configuration commands in the scratchpad, the control module
executes the commands and makes the corresponding configuration changes to the XP.
However, if you power off or reboot the XP, the new changes are lost. Use the following
procedure to save the changes into the Startup configuration file so that the XP reinstates
the changes when you reboot the software.
1.
Ensure that you are in Enable mode by entering the enable command in the CLI.
2.
Enter the following command to copy the configuration changes in the Active
configuration to the Startup configuration:
copy active to startup
3.
When the CLI displays the following message, enter yes to save the changes.
Are you sure you want to overwrite the Startup configuration? [n]
Note:
You also can save active changes to the Startup configuration file from within
Configure mode by entering the save startup command.
Enterasys Xpedition 8000/8600 Getting Started Guide
95
Activating the Configuration Changes and Saving the Configuration File
The new configuration changes are added to the Startup configuration file stored in the
control module’s boot flash.
Viewing the Current Configuration
If you want to view the current configuration:
1.
Ensure that you are in Enable mode by entering the enable command in the CLI.
2.
Enter the following command to display the status of each command line:
system show active-config
The CLI displays the active configuration file with the following possible annotations:
–
Commands without errors are displayed without any annotation.
–
Commands with errors are annotated with an “E”.
–
If a particular command has been applied such that it can be expanded on
additional interfaces/modules, it is annotated with a “P”. For example, if you
enable STP on all ports in the current system, but the XP contains only one module,
then the command to enable STP will be applied at a later date when more
modules have been added.
A command like stp enable et.*.* would be displayed as follows:
P: stp enable et.*.*
This indicates that it is only partially applied. If you add more modules to the XP
at a later date and then update the configuration file to encompass all of the
available modules in the XP, then the “P”: portion of the above command line
would disappear when this configuration file is displayed.
If a command that was originally configured to encompass all of the available
modules on the XP becomes only partially active (after a hotswap or some such
chassis reconfiguration), then the status of that command line automatically
changes to indicate a partial completion status, complete with “P:”.

If You Experience This Difficulty...
Try this Remedy...
The Enterasys Xpedition (XP) exhibits
no activity (no LEDs are on, the fan
module is not operating, and so on).
Make sure the power supply is installed
and plugged into a power source and the
power source is active. Also check to see
whether the switch on the power supply is
in the ON position.
The power supply is installed but is not
operating.
Check the power cable and the circuit to
which the power supply is connected.
The fan module is not active.
Check the power cable and the circuit to
which the power supply is connected.
If the green status LED on the power supply
indicates that it is active, immediately
power down the chassis, unplug the power
supply, and contact. The fan module may be
improperly connected or damaged.

If You Experience This Difficulty...
Try this Remedy...
The control module is not active.
Check the power cable and the circuit to
which the power supply is connected.
If the power supply is working, make sure
the control module is inserted all the way
into its slot in the chassis and the captive
screws are screwed in. The control module
must be in the or /1 slot and not in a line
card slot.
98
No line cards are active.
Check the power cable and the circuit to
which the power supply is connected.
A specific line card is inactive.
Make sure the line card is inserted all the
way into the chassis and the captive screws
are screwed in.
The chassis LEDs indicate activity but
you cannot tell what the XP is doing.
Make sure you have properly connected the
primary control module to a management
console and the console is powered on.
An older software version continues to
boot instead of the newer version on a
PC card or TFTP server.
Use the procedure in Loading the System
Image Software on page 92 to configure the
XP to boot using newer software.
You are unable to access the
configuration commands in the CLI.
Enter the enable command to access the
Enable mode, then enter the configure
command to access the Configuration
mode.
Configuration changes do not seem to
be taking effect.
Use the procedure in Activating the
Configuration Commands in the Scratchpad on
page 95 to activate the changes.
Configuration changes are not
reinstated after a reboot.
Use the procedure in Saving the Active
Configuration to the Startup Configuration File
on page 95 to save the configuration
changes to the Startup configuration file.

The XP is not resolving DNS names.
Use the procedure in Setting the DNS
Domain Name and Address on page 88 to set
up DNS.
If you have already performed this
procedure, make sure you can use NS
lookup on the DNS server to get the default
domain.
An SNMP manager cannot access the
XP.
Use the procedure in Setting Up SNMP
Community Strings on page 84 to set up an
SNMP community string and specify a
target for SNMP traps.
If you have already performed this
procedure, enter the snmp show all
command to check the SNMP settings.
Use the traceroute and ping commands to
verify that the XP can reach the SNMP
management station.
You are unable to ping a certain host.
