    Commissioning the BTI7800 for the First Time

    Use this procedure to commission a BTI7800 Series chassis for the first time. Commissioning resets the configuration database to factory defaults and sets up basic system parameters that allow the system to be managed.

    Note: Do not use this commissioning procedure if you are commissioning a replacement CMM on an in-service chassis. Follow the procedure in Restoring the Database from a Backup Without Affecting Service instead.

    Note: This procedure resets the database to factory defaults and is service affecting. All existing provisioning is erased.

    When you commission a chassis, you commission the CMM for that chassis. If you move a commissioned CMM to another chassis, you will need to commission the CMM for the new chassis.

    You only need to commission a CMM for a dual CMM chassis if the chassis does not have an active CMM. If the chassis has an active CMM, the CMM that you insert will automatically become commissioned when it synchronizes with the active CMM. For this same reason, you only need to commission one CMM when turning up a dual CMM chassis. Once the commissioned CMM becomes active, the second CMM becomes commissioned when it synchronizes with the active CMM.

    1. Seat the CMM into slot A. If your system has two CMMs, leave the other CMM unseated.
    2. Log in locally to the CMM in slot A over the craft serial or craft Ethernet port.

      For information on how to do this, see Logging In to the CMM Craft Ethernet or Craft Serial Ports.

    3. Enter setup mode. This is known as the commissioning shell.
      localhost console
      localhost login: admin 
      Shell Help: List of the commands you can use: 
      setup  - Commission the CMM 
      cli    - Open CLI interface to the system 
      reboot - Reboot the CMM 
      exit   - Logout  
      scm1:~$ setup  
      Welcome to the BTI 7800 Series - CMM Commissioning Application! 
      Note: This process commissions one CMM at a time. 
      Type 'help' or '?' for the list of the commands. Press '<Ctrl> + C' at 
      any time to exit. 
    4. To see the list of available commands, type help.

      Note: The commands in the commissioning shell should only be used on an uncommissioned system. Do not use the commissioning shell commands as a substitute for regular CLI commands.

    5. Set the time zone.

      For example:

      (cmm-setup)$ settz
      Please identify a location so that time zone rules can be set 
      Please select a continent or ocean.  
      1) Africa  
      2) Americas  
      3) Antarctica  
      4) Arctic Ocean  
      5) Asia  
      6) Atlantic Ocean  
      7) Australia  
      8) Europe  
      9) Indian Ocean 
      10) Pacific Ocean 
      11) none - I want to specify the time zone using the Posix TZ format. 

      Follow the series of menu-driven options to set the time zone.

      Note: You must manually set the correct time zone, date, and time even if you use NTP servers. The BTI7800 requires a correct clock at all times, including the period prior to the establishment of NTP server connectivity. Use of NTP servers is recommended.

    6. Set the date.

      For example:

      (cmm-setup)$ setdate
      Set the system date and confirm setting.  
      The current date is 2015-01-01. 
      Enter the new date (in the format YYYY-MM-DD): 2015-06-12 
      System Date will be set to 2015-06-12 
      Confirm (yes/no/abort): yes  
      System Date is set to 2015-06-12 
    7. Set the time.

      For example:

      (cmm-setup)$ settime
      Set the system time and confirm setting.  
      The current time is 00:02:48, Timezone is America/New_York. 
      Enter the new time (in 24-hour format-- HH:MM:SS): 12:13:00 
      System time will be set to 12:13:00 
      Confirm (yes/no/abort): yes  
      System time is set to 12:13:00
    8. Set up the networking parameters.

      Note: All parameters are required to be set for proper operation of the BTI7800.

      For example:

      (cmm-setup)$ commission
      Set the parameters required for initial, basic CMM setup and system 
      management, and confirm the settings.  
      Controller Id: 1  
      Note: The System Management (Shared), Individual CMM, and Default 
      Gateway IP Addresses must be in the same network.  
      Enter System Management (Shared) Address (a.b.c.d):  
      Enter Management Netmask (/N or a.b.c.d):  
      Enter Default Gateway Address (a.b.c.d):  
      Enter NTP Server address (a.b.c.d):  
      Enter DNS Server address (a.b.c.d):  
      You have entered following values: 
      Controller ID                            : 1 
      System Management (Shared) Address       : 
      Management Netmask                       : 
      Default Gateway Address                  : 
      NTP servers                              : 
      DNS servers                              :  
      Confirm (yes/no/abort): yes 
      Do you wish to reset the database to factory defaults? This will impact traffic.
      Confirm (yes/no):
    9. Set the database to factory defaults.

      This removes the existing configuration database and initializes a new database, but retains the commissioning parameters that you just set.

      For example:

      Do you wish to reset the database to factory defaults? This will impact traffic.
      Confirm (yes/no): yes
      The following values are set:
      Controller ID                            : 1
      System Management (Shared) Address       : 
      Management Netmask                       : 
      Default Gateway Address                  : 
      NTP servers                              : 
      DNS servers                              : 
      If you are going to restore a database as part of commissioning,
      do that next - otherwise, reboot for IP settings to take effect.
    10. Set the individual management IP address of the CMM. This is optional.

      This address must be on the same subnet as the System Management (Shared) Address that you entered earlier.

      (cmm-setup)$ setcmmip
      Enter Individual (CMM) Management Address:  
      You have entered following value: 
      Individual CMM Address           :  
      Confirm (yes/no/abort): yes 
    11. Verify the settings.

      For example:

      (cmm-setup)$ show
      Controller ID                : 1 
      Management Shared IP Address : 
      Management Netmask           : 
      Individual CMM IP            : 
      Default Gateway Address      : 
      NTP Server Address           : 
      DNS Server Address           : 
      Current Time                 : 12:40:59 
      Current Date                 : 2015-06-12 
      Time Zone                    : America/New_York 
      OS Version                   : 1.0.0-16305 
      Application Version          : 3.0.0 17453

      Proceed to step 12 if the settings are correct. Otherwise, go back and correct the settings as necessary by reissuing the respective command(s).

    12. Reboot the CMM.
      (cmm-setup)$ reboot
      Do you want this CMM to reboot? (yes/no) : yes  
      Broadcast message from root@scm1 (pts/0) (Fri Jun 12 12:41:37 2015):  
      The system is going down for reboot NOW! 

      The CMM in slot A reboots and assumes the role of the active system controller module (SCM). This might take several minutes. Proceed to the next step after the CMM finishes rebooting.

    13. If you have a dual CMM system, seat the other CMM into slot B. The CMM in slot B will now synchronize with the CMM in slot A. This might take several minutes. When this is finished, the Active LED on the CMM in slot B turns green.
    14. Log in to the CLI using the shared management IP address and verify that the CMMs are synchronized if applicable. For information on how to log in to the CLI, see Logging In to the CLI.

      The examples below have been edited to show only the relevant output.

      In a dual CMM system, the CMMs are synchronized when the HA Status is In Sync:

      bti7800# show system
      Active Controller         : cmm:1/A 
      Backup Controller         : cmm:1/B 
      HA Status                 : In Sync 

      In a single CMM system, only the active controller is listed:

      bti7800# show system
      Active Controller         : cmm:1/A 
      HA Status                 : Not Ready 
    15. Perform a cold reload of all modules in the system. This ensures the CMM and all service modules are properly synchronized.
      bti7800# system reload all cold

    The chassis is now commissioned.

    Proceed to configure other system settings including administrative parameters (see Configuring General Administrative Parameters).

    If you want to change the shared management IP address after commissioning, see Configuring the Shared Management IP Address and Subnet.

    If you want to restore the database from a backup, see Restoring the Database from a Backup from the CLI.

    Note: Before you remove a commissioned CMM from a chassis, always uncommission the CMM first. See Uncommissioning a CMM. Uncommissioning ensures that the CMM behaves predictably when you later insert it into a chassis.
