3.3 Setup for Out-of-band (Console) Management

Before doing any in-band management, it is necessary to perform console operations for configuring IP and SNMP related settings for the first time the system is being installed. The console port is located on the SNMP module.

Any PC running Windows 95/98/XP/2000/2003 can be used as a console via the COM port. Windows Hyper Terminal program is an ideal, and the most popular, software for such console terminal operations.

To setup console operation, the steps are:

  1. Find a proper RS-232 cable for the connection to a console terminal. If your are using a PC as a Terminal, make sure the cable pin assignments comply with the following:
Console port
9-pin PC COM port
Pin 2 RXD
3
  3 TXD
2
  4 DTR
6
  5 GND
5
  6 DSR
4

Out-of-band Console Management

  1. Connect one end to the console port and connect the other end to the PC COM port.
  2. Configure your PC COM port setting to match the RS-232 settings of the console port and start your terminal software.

            Factory default settings of the Console port
                  Baud rate: 38400, N, 8, 1, 0
                  Flow control: disabled

  1. Turn the system power on.
  2. Press <Enter> key several times in your terminal software until a login prompt comes up. It means the connection is proper.

 

NOTE: The console port does not support a modem connection.

Refer to Chapter 4 for more information about Console management.


3.4 Setup for In-band Management
To perform an in-band management, it is necessary to connect the system to your TCP/IP network. The steps are:

  1. Configure IP and SNMP related settings to the system using direct console management the first time the system is being installed.
  2. Find a proper straight-through Category 5 UTP cable (maximal length 100 meters) for the connection.
  3. Connect one end of the UTP cable to the UTP port on the SNMP module and connect the other end to the device, such as a switching hub, in your TCP/IP network.

In-band Management

  1. Start your in-band management operations. For different management methods, refer to:
  • Chapter 4 for Telnet management
  • Chapter 5 for SNMP management
  • Chapter 6 for Web management

Chapter 5
SNMP Management

SNMP management is performed at a network management station running SNMP network management application manager software with graphical user interface. The following figure illustrates an example model:

SNMP agent

The system unit serves as an SNMP agent and provides the capabilities that allows network administrators via SNMP protocol to set parameters and view system status and media converter status defined in the standard MIB-II and private MIB.

5.1 Configuring SNMP Settings via Console Operation
Before performing SNMP operation, proper SNMP settings must be configured in the system unit. The SNMP related settings are:

Name Login name to identify a specific system unit
Location Location where the system is installed
Contact Contact person regarding the system
Community SNMP communities to which the system belongs and access rights to the system (read only or read/write)
Trap hosts  IP addresses of trap hosts to which a trap is issued and the trap community to which the system belongs

Up to four SNMP communities and up to three trap hosts are supported by the system SNMP agent.

These settings can be configured through console or telnet operation. Refer to Chapter 4 for more information.


5.2 SNMP Private MIB
Use the SNMP management application software to compile the MIB file first before performing any management operation. In addition to standard MIB-II (RFC1213), the system supports private MIB as below:

Private MIB Objects

* RTP_LinkStatus : TP port link status of the connected remote MC

Note: Port A is the upper port of the MC; Port B is the lower port of the MC

Refer to MIB file, KC1300-Vx.xx.mib for the details. This file can be used for MIB compiler.


5.3 SNMP Traps
The system also supports the following SNMP traps. When the trap event occurs, the SNMP agent will generate a trap notification to the SNMP management station.

Trap Name Event of Trap Generated
Cold Start The system is powered on and complete initialization
Authentication failure SNMP community authentication failure
Power status Any power failure of Power1and Power2
Power status Any power recovery of Power1 and Power2
Fan status Fan failure
Fan status Fan recovery
Slot # Port A link Slot # MC Port A link down or up
Slot # Port A link  Slot # MC Port A link recovery
Slot # Port B link Slot # MC Port B link down or up
Slot # Port B link Slot # MC Port B link recovery
Slot # RTP link Slot # remote MC TP link change

The binding information together with a trap is:

Trap Name VarBind
Cold Start sysDescr, ie KC-1300
Authentication failure sysDescr, ie, KC-1300
Power Status  Power status for Power1 and Power2
Fan Status Fan status
Slot # Port A link Slot description and Port A link status
Slot # Port B link Slot description and Port B link status
Slot # RTP link Slot description and  remote MC TP link status

Remark:
1. The slot # can be slot 1 up to slot 16.
2. Port A: the upper port of the MC installed in slot.
3. Port B: the lower port of the MC installed in slot.
