Greetings all,

tasked to replace several AP300 on 2 RFS6000, only config interface I got is the RFS' web java client. Equipment is 11-12 years old. Having a hard time acquiring info how to perform the procedure, replacing the MAC in one slot is not an option but essentially what I want to achieve: replace AP and tell RFS its new MAC.

Pointers appreciated. Exporting the old profile and importing in the new device comes to mind but I don't see such features in the web client. Is there other (newer, better) software around to manage this setup?

attached a schematic of the devices and ip-settings.
all ports are "untagall(access)", only port46(wifi-ap) is "tagall(trunk)"
pvid is setup ok per port.
Extreme / Avaya / Nortel Ethernet Switching / Avaya 5520 VLAN help
« Last post by Avaya5520 on September 06, 2020, 06:15:05 PM »
I have a problem setting up a vlan on my switch.

I have Firebox m500 with upgraded AES-ni cpu with lan and a vlan interface. lan just standard vlan1 and vlan interface vlan2
Port 1 is wan, port 2 is lan and port 3 is vlan2.

port 2(vlan1) is on avaya switch connected to 48 and ports 1-24 are assigned (access) and port 46 is trunk(wifi ap). is router, is avaya switch.
this all works. all devices get ip and have access to internet.

port 3(vlan2) is on avaya switch connected to 47 and ports 25-36 are assigned (access) and port 46 is trunk(wifi ap). is router, is avaya switch.
this doesn't work. no ip-addresses are given to any connected(wifi or wired). when I plug laptop directly in router port 3(and assign vlan id 2 in windows), laptop connects, gets 192.168.200.x ip and has internet. When connected with switch:no ip-address.

what am I doing wrong?
I use EDM from avaya, but can also access comport. EDM is preferred.
Extreme / Avaya / Nortel Ethernet Switching / Switchports not passing traffic

Hi everyone

I'm struggling with an issue which I hope someone can help me with. We have an office in Leeds which has around 10 switch stacks consisting of Nortel 470-48T switches.

Due to covid-19, the offices have been empty for the past few months but now users are starting to return. I'm receiving reports that although wired desktops/laptops are picking up an IP address, they have no Internet/network access. The workaround is to connect to WiFi and connect to the VPN to work.

On closer inspection, I've discovered this is affecting two specific areas of the building. So far, I rebooted the stacks in question but the problem was still there. I bounced the fibre port on the core switch end, but again no difference.

When I went to bounce the uplink port on the edge switch stack, I get one of the following errors:

ifAdminStatus.48: inconsistentValue
ifAdminStatus.176: inconsistentValue

I think the number represents the port number.

Has anyone seen this error or knows how to resolve it? Like I say, it's preventing me from resetting this uplink port which I believe is the source of my problem.

I'd appreciate any advice or opinions.

It would be a good point to discuss and discuss.
I'm trying to connect 2x avaya 4950ERS-GTS PWR+ using an Aruba wireless mesh. the remote switch is a 450 being upgraded to a 4950.

I've found that if I don't set the PVID of a trunk uplink as the mgmt vlan of the switch, I can't communicate with the switches management IP. (but I can with a nortel 450)

For the wireless mesh, I would like to have the PVID of wireless AP trunk set to the mgmt vlan of the access points.

The setup is as follows:
4950(mgmt vlan 1)(pvid2527)<-->AP mesh portal <--> AP mesh Point (Pvid 2527) <--> (pvid2527) 4950(mgmt vlan 909)

the remote 4950 is in a different mgmt vlan becuase vlan 1 can't be passed over the wireless mesh. nortel 450 is in place there now with this current config functioning successfully. (we are in the process of moving away from vlan 1 for mgmt campus wide).

Hopefully this all makes sense. What should I be doing to access the remote 4950's IP, and should I be taking any special STP considerations?

as a side question, does the 450 [tagged trunk] untag or tag the pvid?
Extreme / Avaya / Nortel Ethernet Switching / Re: Help setting up MLT

Hi andrewm659,

I'm not quite sure if you were able to set up your MLT with success or not. Do you have the lacp up and running, or not?   

However, let me just say that the configuration of the MLT on your Baystack will depends on the requirements/capabilities of your synology.

I don't know the software version that you're running on your 5500, but I'm sharing with you a working/tested example that I've used in a config of a ERS4900 this week:

vlan port 1/4,2/4 tagging untagall
vlan members add 173 1/4,2/4

lacp key port 1/4 4
lacp key port 2/4 4
lacp mode port 1/4,2/4 active
lacp timeout-time port 1/4,2/4 short
lacp aggregation port 1/4,2/4 enable

Regarding your code, like I said, it will depends on the synology, but probably you'll need the timeout-time short on your lacp ports.

Extreme / Avaya / Nortel Ethernet Switching / VSP-VOSS SNMPv3 Traps
« Last post by csantos on August 21, 2020, 04:49:29 AM »

I'm having some trouble with SNMP traps on my VSP 8400. Basically, I've a SNMP Trap server that does not receive any kind of traffic comming from my VSP, when try I generate an event like port up/down, by unplugging/plugging the network cable.

In attach, you have the SNMP config in one of my VSP 8K and a screenshot of the interfaces where you can see that the trap for link down/up events is enabled.

Please, be aware that the in my Trap server i can see other devices (EXOS access stacks) sending events through traps port (162).

Anyone has any idea on this?

Thanks in advance!

I have a Nortel Baystack 5500-48.  I recently purchased a synology nas and would like to set up bonded interface on the switch and combine the interfaces together to go from 1G to 4Gig.  Basically ether-channel and port-channel in the Cisco world.  I believe this is MLT on the Baystack.  I manage to fumble through networking so any help I get is greatly appreciated.  I"m not sure if i'm on the right track or not. 

Here is how I have my switch setup currently:

vlan create 1001,1010,1100 type port 1

vlan name 1001 "v1001-House"

vlan members 1 NONE
vlan members 1001 1-34,36-48

vlan ports 1-34 pvid 1001
vlan ports 35 pvid 1010
