FVC Access NGI


1)   Login as admin password vswitch     - type admin at the prompt
2)   set system delflashcfg              - to clear out any residual crap
3)   show system ports                   - displays module names and port numbers
4)   set lecs local disable              - Stops box advertising its own WKA
5)   set ilmi netprefix 39826f31480000000000010005
6)   set sigl pnniport 601               - BMH box 1st E1 port is 601. Do not enable ilmi
7)   set pnni pglevel 96                 - 12 bytes for BMH's PNNI peer group
8)   set e1 scrambling 601 enable        - to match BMH's WAN 2 daughter card
9)   set e1 clocking 601 external        - BMH clock from the 8265 in all cases
10)  set e1 line-coding 601 hdb3         - only line coding WAN2 daughter knows how to do
11)  set bridge elanname BMH_MAIN        - Sets the ELAN name for the Ethernet port LEC.

To set a management IP address, have a look at the IP address table (set
system delflashcfg does not necessarily clear this).

12)  show ipr config

Delete any extraneous entries in the table by

13)  set ipr remove n                    - Where n is the Ifc number of addr to del

Configure the management IP address, Default Gateway address and Sub-Net
mask by :-

14)  set ipr new

15)  set ipr bind bridge 1 1             - Binds Interface 1 to Bridge 1

You will be asked to reboot the machine after some of the above. You can
ignore these until you have completed the entire configuration to save
time. Use set system reset to reboot rather than POR's. It takes just as
long to reboot the machine as a power off/on but is probably less stressful
for the power supply.

Once a management IP address is configured correctly, you will NOT get the
"IP interface not bound!" message during boot-up.

If the port to the ATM switch is configured correctly you will see the
message ...
LAYERM {601}: 00000:00:22 SAAL is READY

If you're connecting via a 155 port to the 8265, then take all the defaults
for the link.
ie skip all the OC3 equivalents of steps 8,9 & 10.

Firmware upgrade

1. Log in as admin

FVCCMD> admin
Enter Password: vswitch

2. Set an ip address on the switch

ADMIN> set ipr

3. Reload switch to activate new ip address

ADMIN> set system reset

4. Start tftp server.

Current code is:-
setm5-6.img for op code
fsw506.img for boot code

5. As there isn't enough flash for two images, the original needs to be deleted.

ADMIN> flash erase str-mgmt
ADMIN> flash erase FSW.5.05

* WARNING ** At this point, if you reboot the switch there won't be a boot image, so you will probably have to load a new boot image over the serial port, but I have no idea how you would do this. Moral of the story, ensure you don't reboot at this point!

6. Start the tftp upload process.

ADMIN> set tftp server a.b.c.d
ADMIN> set tftp remotefile setm506.img (and then fsw506.img)
ADMIN> set tftp start

Message on completion is ''TFTP file transfer completed. Got xyz bytes. (Complete with horrible English)

7. Check the checksums

ADMIN> flash dir

Rom 11669 XG sand-boot
Flash 90166 XG FSW.5.06
Flash 260651 XG str-mgmt …edited…
Default boot file: FSW.5.05

XG means checksum is OK, XB means there is an error.

9. Change the default boot file

ADMIN> flash bootfile FSW.5.06

10. Reboot

ADMIN> set system restart
