Configuring In-Band Management on a BTI7800 Network Element
Use this procedure to configure in-band management on a BTI7800 network element.
Ensure there is at least one optical interface configured. The BTI7800 supports in-band management on its optical interfaces only.
- Right-click a network element in the Network tree or in
the Topology Map view, and then select System Info.
The System Info window appears.
- Click the Management tab to see the management
The Management panel appears.
- To add a management interface:
Click Add to bring up the Add In-band Management Interface dialog.
Use the drop-down menu to specify the Name of the management interface you want to add.
Use the drop-down menu to specify the actual Interface for this management interface.
The BTI7800 supports in-band management connectivity over the ODCC Channel only.
The Add In-band Management Interface dialog closes and the new interface is shown in the in-band management interface list.
Repeat this step as necessary to add additional management interfaces.
- To delete a management interface:
Select an interface from the list of in-band management interfaces and click Delete.
Click Yes in the confirmation dialog.
The selected interface is removed from the in-band management interface list.
Repeat this step as necessary to delete additional management interfaces.
- Select or clear Proxy ARP to enable or disable
Proxy ARP allows the BTI7800 to respond to ARP requests on the external system management interface on behalf of same-subnet network elements reachable through in-band channels.
- Select or clear IS-IS to enable or disable
IS-IS routing on the management interfaces.
IS-IS is supported on BTI7800 release 4.1 and higher.
- If you enable IS-IS, then specify the network entity title
The network entity title consists of a 3-octet area address, a 6-octet system identifier, and a 1-octet NSAP selector (which must be 00): aa.aaaa.ssss.ssss.ssss.00
aa.aaaa - 6 hexadecimal digits for the area (consisting of a 2- digit format identifier followed by a domain)
ssss.ssss.ssss - 12 hexadecimal digits for the system identifier, which must be unique to the area
- When you are finished, click Apply Changes.
