Help on ERS 4548GTS-PWR Management.
« on: August 03, 2016, 09:58:18 PM »
Hi Guys! I need help on something. I have 45 ERS 4k SW for access and 1 Nortel 8310 for Distribution. I need to setup a network for the management. I already tried this:

Vlan 69 for mgmt, every SW it's connected to the 8310. I already created the vlan 69 in the 8310 and i have created the interface vlan 69 in that 8310 with ip 10.0.0.1.

I set up an MLT between 8310 and one LabERS4K, same vlan config in the LabSW and same MLT. I Enabled Telnet for both SW. I have conected to the LabERS my computer and have no succed pingin the SW. Both of them. btw the port conected to my latptop it's in the vlan 69 and I assigned the IP manually (Cuz there is no DHCP on that network ov.)

Thanks!

I don't know anything about Nortel.
So on each ERS4K you have specified
vlan mgmt 69
So your management IP on the Nortel is 10.0.0.1 and the management IP on the MLT'd switch is what?
Say it's 10.0.0.2
Are you not able to ping from switch to switch (take the laptop out of the equation)?
Say, ping 10.0.0.1 source 10.0.0.2 for instance?

OK.  If you created VLAN 69 for switch management on the 8310 and assigned it an address, then you need to:

1) Tag the VLAN 69 on to the MLT links that go to the switches.  Make sure that the MLT ports are set to tag all traffic when moving multiple VLAN's.
2) Create VLAN 69 on the switches and on their MLT link back to the 8310.  Once again, make sure the ports on the switches are set to tag all.
3) Change the management VLAN on the switches to VLAN 69 and make sure their IP address falls in the correct range.
4) Ping from the switches to the 8310 to make sure they connect.
5) Make sure VLAN 69 is able to be routed on the 8310 if you want to be able to get to the management VLAN from another network.

If you can't ping the local switch you're connected to, you best check the following:

1) the switch ip should be configured correctly (not the stack ip unless it is actually a stack) with "ip address switch ip.ip.ip.ip mask.mask.mask.mask
2) make sure the ip is tied to the management vlan with "vlan mgmt x"
3) check that your access port where your client is plugged into is untagged in the management vlan ("show vlan interface info <portnr>" and "show vlan interface vid <portnr>"). Tagging should be 'untagall', vlan member should be the mgmt vlan, and pvid should be the mgmt-vlan also.
4) check the ip settings of your nic..
Kind regards,

Nice! Worked! I did this:

Config as follows:

SW1:
enable
configure terminal
ip address stack 0.0.0.0
ip address switch 10.0.0.2
ip address netmask 255.255.255.224
!LACP mode is set to OFF on all interfaces to enable manipulation of
!ports with LACP enabled
interface Ethernet ALL
lacp mode port ALL off
exit
vlan create 69 type port 1
vlan name 69 "ADMSW"
vlan ports 47-48 tagging tagAll
vlan configcontrol flexible
vlan members 1 NONE
vlan members 69 1,47-48
vlan ports 1,47-48 pvid 69
vlan configcontrol strict
mlt 1 name "TrunkTest" enable member 47-48
interface Ethernet ALL
spanning-tree port 47-48 learning disable
exit
vlan mgmt 69
mlt spanning-tree 1 stp 1 learning disable

SW2:
enable
configure terminal
ip address stack 0.0.0.0
ip address switch 10.0.0.1
ip address netmask 255.255.255.224
!LACP mode is set to OFF on all interfaces to enable manipulation of
!ports with LACP enabled
interface Ethernet ALL
lacp mode port ALL off
exit
vlan create 69 type port 1
vlan name 69 "ADMSW"
vlan ports 47-48 tagging tagAll
vlan configcontrol flexible
vlan members 1 NONE
vlan members 69 1,47-48
vlan ports 1,47-48 pvid 69
vlan configcontrol strict
mlt 1 name "TrunkTest" enable member 47-48
interface Ethernet ALL
spanning-tree port 47-48 learning disable
exit
vlan mgmt 69
mlt spanning-tree 1 stp 1 learning disable

Telnet access enabled on both SW.

Computer:

10.0.0.3 255.255.255.224

I can ping and Telnet it.

Quick question:

In the 8310 I need to configure "Interface vlan 69 ip address x.x.x.x x.x.x.x" right?
