Miscellaneous

Equipment Identification

These fields allow you to store information that identifies the unit.

Unit ID

Provides a user-configurabletext string for the name of the MX2800STS-1.This name can help you distinguish between different installations. You can enter up to 32alpha-numericcharacters in this field, including spaces and special characters (such as an underbar). This information is locally stored and displayed in the upperright-handcorner of the MX2800STS-1terminal screens.

STS-1J1 Path Trace

Tx – 62 byte string to be transmitted in the J1 Path Trace (CR/LF are automatically appended to the string).

Rx – 62 byte string received in the J1 Path Trace.

Syslog Setup

Selections include TRANSMISSION, HOSTIP ADDRESS, SEVERITY

LEVEL, and HOSTFACILITY.

Transmission

ENABLE orDISABLE the transmission of log events to the external Syslog server. You must first define the host IP address.

Host IP Address

Specifies the IP address of the external server that is running the Syslog host daemon.

Severity Level

Specifies the lowest level of severity that causes messages to be logged to the Syslog server. The levels are listed in Table 3-1 on page 3-37, in order of decreasing severity. Any message at or above a selected severity level will be logged if a transmission is enabled.

TL1 Account Management

This menu allows for TL1 account management. Before any TL1 session can be initiated, the user must be authenticated. This user database provides access to the current list of TL1 users and their associated passwords and privileges. This information is used strictly for TL1 purposes.

Each row in the menu contains the associated information for a particular user. The username must be defined before an associated password or privilege can be assigned, and a privilege can only be defined after a password is assigned. All passwords are hidden for security purposes and are never shown in “clear text” form. Usernames and password entries are automatically converted to uppercase on entry. A user is prevented from deleting himself when editing the database over a TL1 session.

Chapter 3. Configuration

Currently, a user’s privilege can be one of three values: DISABLED,GUEST, orADMIN. ADISABLED account behaves as expected, and effectively disables all access while preserving account information. AGUEST account allows alarm database access and autonomous messages, but no user database access. AnADMIN account is a guest account with user database access.

Any time the MX2800 STS-1configuration is saved to FLASH, the TL1 user database is saved as well. The user database is also saved (as required) when any TL1 session is close (i.e., via a TL1‘CANC-USER’request).

Save on Logout

ENABLE this function to save the configuration when you logout.DISABLE if you do not want to save the configuration.

Craft baud rate

Possible baud rate settings for the front panel CRAFT port. Choices are: AUTO, 9600, 19200, 38400, and 57600.

UTILITIES

The UTILITIES menu (seeFigure 3-13)allows you to view MX2800STS-1system information for both controller cards (including selftest results), revert to default configuration settings,flash-loada new version of software, transfer configuration information to and from a TFTP server, and reset the system. Possible results for theself-testare listed in the chart followingFigure 3-13 on page 3-39.

Update via TFTP Server

Select UPDATE VIA TFTP SERVER from theUTILITIES menu. A new menu displays, allowing you to enter the IP address and file name of the file you want to download to the unit. Once this information is entered, selectSTART/STOP TRANSFER.

Config Transfer

Select CONFIG TRANSFER from theUTILITIES menu to transfer files to and from a TFTP server. TheCONFIG TRANSFER option also lets you save the MX2800STS-1configuration as a backup file, so you can use the same configuration with multiple MX2800STS-1units.

Only one configuration transfer session (upload or download) can be active at a time.

Before using CONFIG TRANSFER, the MX2800STS-1should have a valid IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway (if required), and should be connected to an Ethernet network.

Saving to a TFTP Server

To save current configuration information to a TFTP server, follow the steps listed below.

1.Set the SERVER IP ADDRESS field to the IP address of the machine running the TFTP server program.

If you are using the ADTRAN TFTP server, the IP address displays in the SERVER IP ADDRESS field. For other TFTP servers, please refer to the appropriate documentation.

2.Change the TFTP Server Filename to a unique filename. This

Chapter 3. Configuration

will be the name of the configuration file saved to the remote server.

Some TFTP servers constrain the format of the filename depending on the operating system of the server. For example, a TFTP server running on a PC under Windows 3.1 may only permit 8.3 format filenames (8 characters, period, and three extension characters).

3. Select SAVECONFIGREMOTELY.

Retrieving from a TFTP Server

To retrieve current configuration information from a TFTP server, follow the steps listed below.

1.Set the SERVER IP ADDRESS field to the IP address of the machine running the TFTP server program.

If you are using the ADTRAN TFTP server, the IP address displays in the SERVER IP ADDRESS field. For other TFTP servers, please refer to the program’s appropriate documentation.

2.Change the TFTP SERVER FILE NAME to a unique filename. Include the complete path. This will be the name of the configuration file retrieved from the remote server.

Configuration changes will not be implemented until all Telnet sessions are closed. Loading a new configuration may disrupt data traffic.

3. Select LOAD ANDUSECONFIG.

System Reset

The system must be manually reset after downloading new software. When the unit has successfully loaded and programmed the new software into its FLASH memory, it will begin uploading the code to the stand-bycontroller. This will be indicated on the menu and the STATUS LED on thestand-bycard will display solid

yellow.

The stand-bycard must remain in place until the process is complete and the STATUS LED is no longer solid yellow. Removing thestand-bycard during the uploading process will corrupt the software.

Once the upload is complete, the stand-bycard willself-resetand begin running the new code. However, the active card does not reset automatically. The unit must be reset through theIMMEDIATE

RESETor SCHEDULEDRESETTIMEfunctions.

SAVE CONFIGURATION

Commits the current configuration changes to nonvolatile memory. If this option is not selected after making changes to the configuration, the unit reverts to its previous configuration when powered down.
