Performing Initial Software Configuration for the Optical ILA


You must perform the initial configuration of the optical ILA through the console port by using the command-line interface (CLI).

Before you begin connecting and configuring an optical ILA, set the following parameter values on the management console or console server:

  • Baud Rate—115200

  • Flow Control—None

  • Data—8

  • Parity—None

  • Stop Bits—1

  • DCD State—Disregard

To setup the IP Address:

  1. Connect the console port to a laptop or PC by using the supplied RJ-45 cable and RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter. The console port (labeled CON) is located on the management panel of the optical ILA (see Connecting the Optical ILA to a Management Console for more information).
  2. Log in as the root user. Enter the default password root.
  3. Start the CLI.
    root@localhost:~# /usr/bin/command

  4. To enter administration mode, log in as the root user with the password Admin@123.
  5. Use the CLI console commands to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot the optical ILA.
