Powering Off an Optical ILA
Use the following procedure to power off an optical ILA.
Before you power off an optical ILA:
Ensure that you have taken the necessary precautions to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage. See Prevention of Electrostatic Discharge Damage.
Ensure that you do not need to route traffic through the optical ILA.
Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available to power off the optical ILA:
An ESD grounding strap
An external management device such as a PC
An RJ-45 to DB-9 rollover cable to connect the external management device to the console port
To power off an optical ILA by using the shut CLI command:
- Connect to the device by using one of the following methods:
Connect a management device to the console (
CON) port on an optical ILA by following the instructions in Connecting the Optical ILA to a Management Console.
Connect a management device to the management (
MGMT) port by following the instructions in Connecting the Optical ILA to a Management Ethernet Device.
- Shut down the optical ILA by using the shut CLI command. This command shuts down the optical ILA and powers
off the unit.
The following message is displayed when you enter the shut command.
BPS->shut down Shutting down this ILA will affect the traffic in both directions and require someone to physically turn on the system. Do you want to continue (y/n) [n]:
Enter y to shut down the ILA.
- To prevent damage to the equipment caused by static discharge, attach an ESD grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
Disconnect power to the optical ILA:
AC power supply—If the AC power source outlet has a power switch, set it to the off (
O) position. If the AC power source outlet does not have a power switch, gently pull out the plug end of the power cord connected to the power source outlet.
DC power supply—Switch the circuit breaker on the panel board that services the DC circuit to the off position.
Remove the power source cable from the power supply faceplate:
AC power supply—Gently pull out the socket end of the power plug connected to the power supply faceplate.
DC power supply—Loosen the screws for the power connector and remove the connector.
