Who Should Read this Manual?

The audience for this user guide is network administrators and IT support personnel who need to config-ure, maintain, and monitor switches and routers in a live network. However, anyone wishing to gain knowledge on how fundamental software features are implemented in the OmniSwitch 6600 Family will benefit from the material in this configuration guide.

When Should I Read this Manual?

Read this guide as soon as you are ready to integrate your OmniSwitch into your network of switches and routers. You should already be familiar with the basics of managing a single OmniSwitch as described in the OmniSwitch 6600 Family Switch Management Guide.

Note. The OmniSwitch 6600 Family Switch Management Guide was originally known as the “OmniSwitch 6624/6648 Switch Management Guide.”

(27)

What is in this Manual?

This configuration guide includes information about configuring the following features:

VLANs, VLAN router ports, mobile ports, and VLAN rules.

Basic Layer 2 functions, such as Ethernet port parameters, source learning, Spanning Tree, and Alcatel interswitch protocols (AMAP and GMAP).

Advanced Layer 2 functions, such as 802.1Q tagging, Link Aggregation, and IP Multicast Switching.

Basic routing protocols and functions, such as static IP routes, RIP, DHCP Relay, and Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP).

Security features, such as switch access control, Authenticated VLANs (AVLANs), authentication servers, and policy management.

Quality of Service (QoS) and Access Control Lists (ACLs) features, such as policy rules for prioritiz-ing and filterprioritiz-ing traffic, and remappprioritiz-ing packet headers.

(28)

What is Not in this Manual?

The configuration procedures in this manual use Command Line Interface (CLI) commands in all exam-ples. CLI commands are text-based commands used to manage the switch through serial (console port) connections or via Telnet sessions. Procedures for other switch management methods, such as web-based (WebView or OmniVista) or SNMP, are outside the scope of this guide.

For information on WebView and SNMP switch management methods consult the OmniSwitch 6600 Family Switch Management Guide. Information on using WebView and OmniVista can be found in the context-sensitive on-line help available with those network management applications.

Note. The OmniSwitch 6600 Family Switch Management Guide was originally known as the “OmniSwitch 6624/6648 Switch Management Guide.”

This guide provides overview material on software features, how-to procedures, and application examples that will enable you to begin configuring your OmniSwitch. It is not intended as a comprehensive refer-ence to all CLI commands available in the OmniSwitch. For such a referrefer-ence to all OmniSwitch 6600 Family CLI commands, consult the OmniSwitch CLI Reference Guide.

How is the Information Organized?

Chapters in this guide are broken down by software feature. The titles of each chapter include protocol or features names (e.g., 802.1Q) with which most network professionals will be familiar.

Each software feature chapter includes sections that will satisfy the information requirements of casual readers, rushed readers, serious detail-oriented readers, advanced users, and beginning users.

Quick Information. Most chapters include a specifications table that lists RFCs and IEEE specifications supported by the software feature. In addition, this table includes other pertinent information such as mini-mum and maximini-mum values and sub-feature support. Most chapters also include a defaults table that lists the default values for important parameters along with the CLI command used to configure the parameter. Many chapters include a Quick Steps section, which is a procedure covering the basic steps required to get a software feature up and running.

Documentation Roadmap

The OmniSwitch user documentation suite was designed to supply you with information at several critical junctures of the configuration process. The following section outlines a roadmap of the manuals that will help you at each stage of the configuration process. Under each stage, we point you to the manual or manuals that will be most helpful to you.

Stage 1: Using the Switch for the First Time

Configuring Ethernet Ports Tutorial

This tutorial describes typical steps involved in configuring an Ethernet port. This example presumes that slot (switch) 1, port 1 is an Ethernet port.

1 This step configures the line speed for slot 1, port 1 with the interfaces speed command. For example, to set the interface line speed for slot 1, port 1 to 100 Mbps enter:

-> interfaces 1/1 speed 100

2 This step configures the interface duplex mode for the interface in slot 1, port 1 with the interfaces

duplex command. In full duplex mode, the interface transmits and receives data simultaneously. In half

duplex mode, the interface can either transmit or receive data at a given time. For example, to set the interface duplex mode for slot 1, port 1 to full duplex enter:

-> interfaces 1/1 duplex full

Note. Duplex mode must be set to full duplex in order to set Flow Control (described below).

3 This step enables flow control for this port with the flow command. If the data buffers on the switch are full, flow control allows the switch to continue receiving data packets once the buffered data has been processed. For example, to enable flow control for slot 1, port 1 enter:

-> flow 1/1

4 This step configures flow control wait time for this port with the flow wait time command. Flow control wait time specifies the amount of time (in microseconds) that the transmitting device waits before resuming transmission of data packets to the receiving device. For example, to configure the flow control wait time for slot 1, port 1 to 46 microseconds enter:

-> flow 1/1 wait time 46

5 Configure the peak flood rate value on this interface with the interfaces flood rate command. The peak flood rate value can be configured in megabits per second, ranging from 0 to 10 Mbps for Ether-net, 0 to 100 Mbps for Fast EtherEther-net, or 0 to 996 Mbps for Gigabit Ethernet. For example, to configure the peak flood rate value for the interface in slot 1, port 1 to 42 Mbps enter:

(39)

Note. Optional. To verify the Ethernet port configuration, use the show interfaces command. The display is similar to the one shown below, and provides additional statistics about received and transmitted bytes and frames.

Slot/Port 1/1 :

Operational Status : down,

Type : Fast Ethernet, MAC address : 00:d0:95:12:ed:04,

OmniSwitch 6602-48

The OmniSwitch 6602-48 provides 48 10/100 Mbps ports, two Gigabit MiniGBIC ports, and two stack-ing ports. Port numbers 1 through 48 support both 10 Mbps Ethernet and 100 Mbps Fast Ethernet inter-faces. Port numbers 49 and 50 support 1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet and port numbers 51 and 52 are stacking ports. For more information on Ethernet hardware configurations, refer to the OmniSwitch 6600 Family Hardware Users Guide.

10/100 Crossover Supported

By default, automatic crossover between MDI/MDIX (Media Dependent Interface/Media Dependent Interface with Crossover) media is supported on OmniSwitch 6600 Family 10/00 ports. Therefore, either straight-through or crossover cable can be used between two OmniSwitch 6600 Familyswitches as long as auto negotiation is configured on both sides of the link. See “Configuring Auto Negotiation, Crossover, and Flow Control Settings” on page 1-22 for more information.

Gigabit Copper SFPs Supported

OmniSwitch 6600 Family switches support 1 Gbps copper 1000base-T SFP transceivers, which can be used with the built-in SFP ports on OmniSwitch 6602-24 and OmniSwitch 6602-48 switches and on the OS6600-GNI-U2 submodule. These copper SFPs support 1000 Mbps at full duplex. They do not support 10/100 speed or half duplex mode.

In addition, configuration problems can occur if a copper SFP is plugged in after configuration changes have been made. For example, if you are swapping SFP with different media types (copper to fiber or vice versa), you need to use the write memory command to save the change of configuration. If you do not save the configuration change then the boot.cfg file will still contain the old configuration but the switch will have the default auto negotiation configuration for the new media. Therefore, Alcatel recommends that you use the write memory command if you swap SFPs of different media types.

Setting Ethernet Port Parameters

When using CLI commands to set Ethernet port parameters, keep in mind that Ethernet and Fast Ethernet are supported only on ports 1 through 48 on the OmniSwitch 6648 and OmniSwitch 6602-48 and ports 1 through 24 on the OmniSwitch 6624, OmniSwitch 6600-P24, and OmniSwitch 6600-U24. Likewise, Gigabit Ethernet is only supported on OmniSwitch 6648 ports 49 through 52 and OmniSwitch 6624 and 6602-24 ports 25 through 28 when the optional Gigabit expansion modules are installed. Gigabit Ethernet is only supported on ports 25 and 26 on the OmniSwitch 6602-24 and ports 49 and 50 on the OmniSwitch 6602-48.

Setting Trap Port Link Messages

The trap port link command can be used to enable or disable (the default) trap port link messages on a

specific port, a range of ports, or all ports on a switch (slot). When enabled, a trap message will be displayed on a Network Management Station (NMS) whenever the port state has changed.

Enabling Trap Port Link Messages

To enable trap port link messages on an entire switch, enter trap followed by the slot number and port link enable. For example, to enable trap port link messages on all ports on slot 2 enter:

-> trap 2 port link enable

To enable trap port link messages on a single port enter trap followed by the slot number, a slash (/), the port number, and port link enable. For example, to enable trap port link messages on slot 2 port 3 enter:

-> trap 2/3 port link enable

To enable trap port link messages on a range of ports enter trap followed by the slot number, a

slash (/), the first port number, a hyphen (-), the last port number, and port link enable. For example, to enable trap port link messages ports 3 through 5 on slot 2 enter:

-> trap 2/3-5 port link enable

Disabling Trap Port Link Messages

To disable trap port link messages on an entire switch, enter trap followed by the slot number and port link disable. For example, to disable trap port link messages on all ports on slot 2 enter:

-> trap 2 port link disable

To disable trap port link messages on a single port enter trap followed by the slot number, a slash (/), the port number, and port link disable. For example, to disable trap port link messages on slot 2 port 3 enter:

-> trap 2/3 port link disable

To disable trap port link messages on a range of ports enter trap followed by the slot number, a

slash (/), the first port number, a hyphen (-), the last port number, and port link disable. For example, to disable trap port link messages ports 3 through 5 on slot 2 enter:

(48)

Setting Flow Control

The flow command can be used to enable or disable (the default) flow control on a specific port, a range of ports, or all ports on an entire switch (slot). When the buffers on a receiving device are full, flow control transmits pause frames to the remote link partner to delay transmission. The local port can delay transmis-sion of data if the remote link partner transmits a pause frame.

Note. If auto-negotiation is implemented and enabled for the interface, the pause mode for this interface is determined by auto-negotiation.

Enabling Flow Control

To enable flow control on an entire switch, enter flow followed by the slot number. For example, to enable flow control on slot 2 enter:

-> flow 2

To enable flow control on a single port, enter flow followed by the slot number, a slash (/), and the port number. For example, to enable flow control on port 3 on slot 2 enter:

-> flow 2/3

To enable flow control on a range of ports, enter flow followed by the slot number, a slash (/), the first port number, a hyphen, and the last port number. For example, to enable flow control on ports 1 through 3 on slot 2 enter:

-> flow 2/1-3

As an option, you can document the interface type by entering ethernet, fastethernet, or gigaethernet before the slot number. For example to enable flow control on the interface on slot 2 port 3 and document the interface type as Fast Ethernet enter:

-> flow fastethernet 2/3

Disabling Flow Control

To disable flow control on an entire switch, enter no flow followed by the slot number. For example, to disable flow control on slot 2 enter:

-> no flow 2

To disable flow control on a single port, enter no flow followed by the slot number, a slash (/), and the port number. For example, to disable flow control on port 3 on slot 2 enter:

-> no flow 2/3

To disable flow control on a range of ports, enter no flow followed by the slot number, a slash (/), the first port number, a hyphen, and the last port number. For example, to disable flow control on ports 1 through 3 on slot 2 enter:

(49)

As an option, you can document the interface type by entering ethernet, fastethernet, or gigaethernet before the slot number. For example to disable flow control on the interface on slot 2 port 3 and document the interface type as Fast Ethernet enter:

-> no flow fastethernet 2/3

Setting Flow Control Wait Time

By default, the flow control wait time is 0 microseconds. Use the flow wait time command to configure flow control wait time on a specific port, a range of ports, or all ports on a switch (slot). When config-ured, flow control wait time specifies the amount of time (in microseconds) that the transmitting device waits before resuming transmission of data packets to the receiving device. The valid range is 0 to 30000 microseconds. (The flow control wait time on 10 Mbps ports is not configurable.)

Note. If auto-negotiation is implemented and enabled for the interface, the Pause mode for this interface is determined by Auto-negotiation and Full-duplex.

Configuring the Flow Control Wait Time

To configure flow control wait time for an entire switch (slot), enter flow followed by the slot number, wait, and the desired wait time in microseconds. For example, to configure a flow control wait time of 96 microseconds on slot 2 enter:

-> flow 2 wait 96

Note. Setting the flow control wait time to zero (0) accomplishes the same function as the flow no wait command (restoring flow control wait time). See “Restoring the Flow Control Wait Time” on page 1-16 for more information.

To configure flow control wait time for a single port, enter flow followed by the slot number, a slash (/), the port number, wait, and the desired wait time in microseconds. For example, to configure a flow control wait time of 96 microseconds on slot 2 port 3 enter:

-> flow 2/3 wait 96

To configure flow control wait time for a range of ports, enter flow followed by the slot number, a slash (/), the first port number, a hyphen (-), the last port number, wait, and the desired wait time in micro-seconds. For example, to configure a flow control wait time of 96 microseconds on ports 1 through 3 on slot 2 enter:

-> flow 2/1-3 wait 96

As an option, you can document the interface type by entering ethernet, fastethernet, or gigaethernet before the slot number. For example, to configure the flow control wait time as 96 microseconds on slot 2 port 3 and document the interface type as Fast Ethernet enter:

(50)

Restoring the Flow Control Wait Time

To restore the flow control wait time (i.e., set it back to 0) for an entire switch, enter flow followed by the slot number and no wait. For example, to restore the flow control wait time to 0 seconds on slot 2 enter:

-> flow 2 no wait

To restore the flow control wait time (i.e., set it back to 0) for a single port, enter interfaces followed by the slot number, a slash (/), the port number, and no wait. For example, to restore the flow control wait time of 0 seconds on slot 2 port 3 enter:

-> flow 2/3 no wait

To restore the flow control wait time (i.e., set it back to 0) for a range of ports, enter flow followed by the slot number, a slash (/), the first port number, a hyphen (-), the last port number, and no wait. For exam-ple, to restore the flow control wait time of 0 seconds on ports 1 through 3 on slot 2 enter:

-> flow 2/1-3 no wait

As an option, you can document the interface type by entering ethernet, fastethernet, or gigaethernet before the slot number. For example, to restore the flow control wait time of 0 seconds on slot 2 port 3 and document the interface type as Fast Ethernet enter:

-> flow fastethernet 2/3 no wait

Setting Interface Line Speed

The interfaces speed command is used to set the line speed on a specific port, a range of ports, or all ports

on an entire switch (slot) to 10 (10 Mbps Ethernet), 100 (100 Mbps Fast Ethernet), 1000 (1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet), or auto (auto-sensing). The auto setting automatically detects and matches the line speed of the attached device. (Available settings for this command depend on the available line speeds of your hardware interface. See “OmniSwitch 6648” on page 1-6, “OmniSwitch 6624” on page 1-7,

“OmniSwitch 6600-U24” on page 1-7, “OmniSwitch 6600-P24” on page 1-8, “OmniSwitch 6602-24” on page 1-8, and “OmniSwitch 6602-48” on page 1-9 for more information.)

To set the line speed on an entire switch enter interfaces followed by the slot number and the desired speed. For example, to set slot 2 to 100 Mbps enter:

-> interfaces 2 speed 100

To set the line speed on a single port enter interfaces followed by the slot number, a slash (/), the port number, and the desired speed. For example, to set the line speed on slot 2 port 3 at 100 Mbps enter:

-> interfaces 2/3 speed 100

To set the line speed on a range of ports enter interfaces followed by the slot number, a slash (/), the first port number, a hyphen (-), the last port number, and the desired speed. For example, to set the line speed on ports 1 through 3 on slot 2 at 100 Mbps enter:

(51)

As an option, you can document the interface type by entering ethernet, fastethernet, or gigaethernet before the slot number. For example, to configure the line speed on slot 2 port 3 at 100 Mbps and docu-ment the interface type as Fast Ethernet enter:

-> interfaces fastethernet 2/3 speed 100

Note. Copper Gigabit Ethernet ports are always set to auto.

Configuring Duplex Mode

The interfaces duplex command is used to configure the duplex mode on a specific port, a range of ports,

or all ports on a switch (slot) to full (full duplex mode), half (half duplex mode), auto (auto-negotiation). (The Auto option causes the switch to advertise all available duplex modes (half/full/both) for the port during autonegotiation.) In full duplex mode, the interface transmits and receives data simultaneously. In half duplex mode, the interface can only transmit or receive data at a given time. (Available settings for this command depend on the available line speeds of your hardware interface. See “OmniSwitch 6648” on page 1-6, “OmniSwitch 6624” on page 1-7, “OmniSwitch 6600-U24” on page 1-7, “OmniSwitch 6600-P24” on page 1-8, “OmniSwitch 6602-24” on page 1-8, and “OmniSwitch 6602-48” on page 1-9 for more information.)

Note. The Auto option sets both the duplex mode and line speed settings to auto-negotiation.

To configure the duplex mode on an entire slot enter interfaces followed by the slot number, duplex, and the desired duplex setting (auto, full, or half). For example, to set the duplex mode on slot 2 to full enter:

-> interfaces 2 duplex full

To configure the duplex mode on a single port enter interfaces followed by the slot number, a slash (/), the port number, duplex, and the desired duplex setting (auto, full, or half). For example, to set the duplex mode on port 3 on slot 2 to full enter:

-> interfaces 2/3 duplex full

To configure the duplex mode on a range of ports enter interfaces followed by the slot number, a slash (/), the first port number, a hyphen (-), the last port number, duplex, and the desired duplex setting (auto, full, or half). For example, to set the duplex mode on ports 1 through 3 on slot 2 to full enter:

-> interfaces 2/1-3 duplex full

As an option, you can document the interface type by entering ethernet, fastethernet, or gigaethernet before the slot number. For example, to set the duplex mode on port 3 on slot 2 and document the port as Fast Ethernet enter:

(52)

Enabling and Disabling Interfaces

The interfaces admin command is used to enable (the default) or disable a specific port, a range of ports,

or all ports on an entire switch (slot).

To enable or disable an entire slot enter interfaces followed by the slot number, admin, and the desired administrative setting (either up or down). For example, to administratively disable slot 2 enter:

-> interfaces 2 admin down

To enable or disable a single port enter interfaces followed by the slot number, a slash (/), the port number, admin, and the desired administrative setting (either up or down). For example, to administra-tively disable port 3 on slot 2 enter:

-> interfaces 2/3 admin down

To enable or disable a range of ports enter interfaces followed by the slot number, a slash (/), the first port number, a hyphen (-), the last port number, admin, and the desired administrative setting (either up or down). For example, to administratively disable ports 1 through 3 on slot 2 enter:

-> interfaces 2/1-3 admin down

As an option, you can document the interface type by entering ethernet, fastethernet, or gigaethernet before the slot number. For example, to administratively disable port 3 on slot 2 and document the port as Fast Ethernet:

-> interfaces fastethernet 2/3 admin down

Configuring Inter-frame Gap Values

Inter-frame gap is a measure of the minimum idle time between the end of one frame transmission and the beginning of another. By default, the inter-frame gap is 12 bytes. The interfaces ifg command can be used to configure the inter-frame gap value (in bytes) on a specific port, a range of ports, or all ports on a switch (slot). Values for this command range from 9 to 12bytes.

Note. This command is only valid on Gigabit ports. Gigabit Ethernet is supported only on ports 49 through 51 on the OmniSwitch 6648 and ports 25 through 28 on the OmniSwitch 6624 and 6600-U24 when Giga-bit Ethernet expansion modules are installed.

To configure the inter-frame gap on an entire slot enter interfaces, followed by the slot number, ifg, and the desired inter-frame gap value. For example, to set the inter-frame gap value on slot 2 to 10 bytes enter:

-> interfaces 2 ifg 10

To configure the inter-frame gap on a single port enter interfaces, followed by the slot number, a slash (/), the port number, ifg, and the desired inter-frame gap value. For example, to set the inter-frame gap value on port 52 on slot 2 to 10 bytes enter:

-> interfaces 2/52 ifg 10

To configure the inter-frame gap on a range of ports enter interfaces, followed by the slot number, a slash (/), the first port number, a hyphen (-), the last port number, ifg, and the desired inter-frame gap value. For example, to set the inter-frame gap value on ports 51 through 52 on slot 2 to 10 bytes enter:

(53)

As an option, you can document the interface type by entering ethernet, fastethernet, or gigaethernet before the slot number. For example, to set the inter-frame gap value on port 52 on slot 2 to 10 bytes and document the port as Gigabit Ethernet enter:

-> interfaces gigaethernet 2/52 ifg 10

Note. Since the interfaces ifg command is only supported on Gigabit interfaces only the gigaethernet keyword should be used.

Resetting Statistics Counters

The interfaces no l2 statistics command is used to reset all Layer 2 statistics counters on a specific port, a

range of ports, or all ports on a switch (slot).

To reset Layer 2 statistics on an entire slot enter interfaces followed by the slot number and no l2 statistics. For example, to reset all Layer 2 statistics counters on slot 2 enter:

-> interfaces 2 no l2 statistics

To reset Layer 2 statistics on a single port enter interfaces followed by the slot number, a slash (/), the port number, and no l2 statistics. For example, to reset all Layer 2 statistics counters on port 3 on slot 2 enter:

-> interfaces 2/3 no l2 statistics

To reset Layer 2 statistics on a range of ports enter interfaces followed by the slot number, a slash (/), the first port number, a hyphen (-), the last port number, and no l2 statistics. For example, to reset all Layer 2 statistics counters on ports 1 through 3 on slot 2 enter:

-> interfaces 2/1-3 no l2 statistics

As an option, you can document the interface type by entering ethernet, fastethernet, or gigaethernet before the slot number. For example, to reset all Layer 2 statistics counters on port 3 on slot 2 and docu-ment the port as Fast Ethernet:

-> interfaces fastethernet 2/3 no l2 statistics
