Nevermind.....I figured it out.

For some odd reason my coworker decided to make some changes in Device & Server Credentials to that cluster.  Changed it back to the way it was and it's now working properly again.

Nortel / Avaya Ethernet Switching / VSP7000 Issue
« Last post by CptnBlues63 on Yesterday at 04:16:59 PM »
Ok so I recently added a third VSP7000 to both sides of my cluster.  I've actually configured and run a couple ports on each side (A and B) to test some unrelated stuff out and it went well.  Today I started to configure a bunch of ports so I can start plugging in some servers from our VM farm and every time I try to make a change to port via COM, I get "Error  noAccess"

I can log directly into the same switch via EDM in a web browser and can edit and of course can make changes in the CLI.  But I need to have it work in COM as well.

Info:
COM v3.1.3.1
VSP7000 v10.2.1.049 BN:49


I tried resetting the SNMP passwords (ro/rw) in case that was the issue but that didn't seem to change anything.  Also, I checked several other switches in our environment through COM and could edit/make changes in all of them without issue.

TIA

Once again, thanks!

You have confirmed what was suspected about a 'headless' situation, not surprising and totally understandable.  And, likewise for the licensing... we kind of assumed the key was tied to the controllers MAC address or internally branded S/N - which is why the hesitancy to look on the used market.  With the cloudiness lifted, we can now plot the path forward.  Thanks for your time and shared experience.

Cheers

The access points might technically work without a controller, if they are set to bridge rather than tunnel the traffic. But my experience is the quality is very poor. You need the controller to coordinate power levels, channel adjustments, roaming hand-offs, and the like. Our controller was down for a couple weeks last year. During that time, Wifi still worked, but complaints and connectivity issues were way up. The "SMART-RF" feature does make a significant difference, and it only works with a controller present.

For the licensing... this is something I only rarely have to look at, but if I recall correctly I had to put in a fairly long set of characters for the license key, and this key had some kind of serial number validation, where the key was only valid for my specific controller. In other words, the only way to get a license that will actually work is to talk to a reseller or support tech that can issue a key for the serial number matching your controller.

Check for the following:
Network scanning software such  as printer monitoring systems, NetDisco, and others.
Change your SNMP strings in case a generic scanner or tool is misconfigured.
Check for Broadcast storms/loops - enable protections at the port, VLAN, and network level such as SLPGuard.
Ensure discard tagged  or Untagged frames is correctly configured on  link and trunk ports.

A controller is probably needed, ... I would not recommend eBay for the licensing, but I'd expect to spend closer to 3-4x the eBay price going through an authorized reseller, rather than 10-20x.
Thanks for the reply!  When you say that a controller is probably needed, is that because the 'thin' APs will have no source for their config upon wake-up, or do they retain the last-received settings until something new is available from a controller?  If I understand the doc read to date, when a 'thin' AP wakes, it asks for a config from any willing responder, which could be a controller or maybe a 'full' AP (7131?)... but what happens after a network wide power outage?

Also, can you tell me what the controller s/w 'wants' when installing a license pack?  Encrypted key string, a la Microsoft?  Multiple items?  Since I can not find a clear set of instructions with searches, it seems reasonable to ask those who've done this previously... or is this whole thing some kind of guarded secret?

Cheers

Hi Michael, thank you for your advice.

You did your magic and now the router is able to see Avaya 5520, to ping Vlans interfaces and all devices can ping the router. But there is still no internet on Vlans 30, 40 and 50 :(

As advised, I created static routes on the router like DestIP 192.168.x.0/24; Gateway 192.168.20.233 (Avaya), Interface br0

I've done tracert and a packet is going only to the router through Avaya 5520 but never comes back.

It looks like the router allows packets working only on local interface (Probably because of br0).

I would appreciate any bright thoughts.

Thank you again.

Cheers

A controller is probably needed, but as it's a smaller network you can probably get by with a less-expensive option like an RFS 4000 or VX 9000. The former you can get from eBay (I've done this when one of my originals failed, but make sure you get the right region model). I would not recommend eBay for the licensing, but I'd expect to spend closer to 3-4x the eBay price going through an authorized reseller, rather than 10-20x.

Nortel / Avaya Ethernet Switching / AVAYA 8600 freeze CPU at 76%
« Last post by caxinas on July 18, 2017, 06:04:15 PM »
Hello all,

I have 2 Avaya 8600 in my primary DC and one in my DRC.
Since 1 month ago that i note that one 8600 had CPU peaks (beteween 10% and aprox 80%) and the behaviour is cyclic starts at 10 and rises to 80% and then starts to decrease, this in less than 10 minutes, the other two 8600 are with their CPU normal, around 10%.
Last week i have lost  at all 3 the http access, i  now only have SSH.
This week i realized that all 8600 have the cpu freeze one at 76%, the other at 10% and the other at 13%.
I already have done a reboot to all three, but the 8600 with the peaks in the cpu start imediatly with the peaks.
Passed only 3 days and i lost again the http acess.
I have searched for broadcast storms, runed the trace command but i donīt have any clue about whats is happening with my 8600.
Someone have a idea of what is happening?

I send 3 seconds of the trace command in attach, if anyone want to give a look.


Any help is welcome
