Selecting Between the Pre-Installed Software Images Using a Web GUI/Browser

The TCA8000 and TCA8500 Timing Servers ship with both a T1 and E1 software image installed in the two internal non-volatile memory partitions. By default, the TCA8000 and TCA8500 Timing Servers use the E1 interface type. You can view the software images from the Timing Server Admin web interface page (see Figure 20). The active software image is displayed as (Active) in the Halt and Reboot System drop-down menu.

To select an alternate software image using the Web-based GUI:

  1. Verify that the Timing Server is powered on.
  2. Enter the IP address of the Timing Server into a web browser.

    For example, https://10.1.0.42.

  3. Log in to the Timing Server as admin.

    Login: admin

    Password: admin

  4. Select the Admin tab from the menu on the left.
  5. Select the required interface from the drop-down menu.
  6. Select the Reboot option.
  7. Click Apply to reboot the Timing Server.
  8. Select Yes when prompted with the dialog box stating “Do you confirm a system reboot system?” The Timing Server reboots and loads the selected software image.

Note: If the appropriate software image interface is not shown in either software image partitions, upgrade the in-active partition with the appropriate software image, and then perform the reboot as described in Upgrading the Software Using a Web GUI/Browser.
