Performing the Initial Configuration for the TCX1000-RDM20

 

An IP address is required to manage the TCX1000-RDM20 nodes. TCX1000-RDM20 nodes are DHCP-enabled by default; they automatically acquire an IP address from the DHCP server when the unit is connected to the LAN. This IP address persists as long as the node is connected to the LAN. To determine this DHCP assigned address; you can query the DHCP server with the equipment’s MAC address or you can query the equipment by using a CLI session.

Note

NOTE: You must configure each TCX1000-RDM20 with a unique static IP address. DHCP should be disabled.

Before opening a CLI session, set the following parameter values on the management console or console server:

  • Baud Rate—115,200

  • Flow Control—None

  • Data—8

  • Parity—None

  • Stop Bits—1

Once you have connected to the SERIAL port (see Connecting the TCX1000-RDM20 to a Management Console), enter these commands:

  1. Enter the user ID: superuser.
  2. Enter the password: <password>.

To set a static IP address on the TCX1000-RDM20 from the CLI:

Note

If you want to use IPv4 communication, use step 1 to step 4, if you want to use IPv6 communication, use step 5 and step 6.

  1. Enter the ip-service show command to determine the existing IP address and the DHCP status of the TCX1000-RDM20. See the following sample output.
    user@host# ip-service show
  2. Enter the ip-service config ipv4 enable-dhcp false command to disable DHCP (if currently enabled).
    user@host# ip-service config ipv4 enable-dhcp false
  3. Enter the ip-service config ipv4 address IP address netmask command to set a static IPv4 address.
    user@host#ip-service config ipv4 address 198.51.100.2 255.255.255.0
  4. Enter the ip-service config ipv4 gateway gateway-address command to set the IPv4 gateway address.

    See the following sample output to set the IPv4 address:

    user@host#ip-service config ipv4 gateway 198.51.100.1
  5. Enter the ip-service config ipv6 address IPv6 address prefix command to set a static IPv6 address.

    See the following sample output to set the IPv6 address:

    user@host#ip-service config ipv6 address 2001.db8::1 32
  6. Enter the ip-service config ipv6 gateway gateway-address command to set the IPv6 gateway address.

    See the following sample output to set the IPv6 gateway address:

    user@host#ip-service config ipv6 gateway 2001.db8::2
  7. Enter the restart warm command to apply the changes by initiating a warm restart of the TCX1000-RDM20.
    user@host#restart warm
    Note

    If you want to enable OSC forwarding, you can follow the steps in the Enabling OSC Forwarding on the TCX1000-RDM20 and then apply the restart warm command.

    The session closes and the TCX1000-RDM20 reboots. The TCX1000-RDM20 now has a static IP address.

  8. Use the proNX Optical Director to provision, monitor, and activate services on a TCX1000-RDM20 optical network. See the proNX Optical Director Installation Guide at https://www.juniper.net/documentation/ for instructions on how to install the proNX Optical Director software on supported servers. Note

    The proNX Optical Director uses the CLI username and password to log in via NETCONF.
