Never obstruct the air vents located at the left and right sides of the chassis.

Note. Clearance is not required at the top and bottom of the chassis. For detailed chassis airflow diagrams, refer to theOmniSwitch 6850 Series Hardware Users Guide.

Installation Options

There are two ways in which the OmniSwitch 6850 Series switches can be installed:

Tabletop installation

Rack-mountinstallation

For information on setting up a switch as a tabletop unit, refer to “Installing the Switch on a Tabletop or Bench.” For information on rack-mountingthe switch, refer to“Rack-Mounting the Switch” on page 8.

Installing the Switch on a Tabletop or Bench

OmniSwitch 6850 Series switches can be installed freestanding as tabletop units. Place your switch on a stable, flat, and static-freesurface.

Note. OmniSwitch 6850 Series switches must be placed “right side up.” Never attempt to operate a switch positioned on its side.

Tabletop Mounting Steps

To install the switch as a tabletop unit, follow the steps below:

1Position the chassis on the table or bench where it is to be installed.

2Be sure that adequate clearance has been provided for chassis airflow and access to the front, back, and sides of the switch. For recommended clearances, refer to page 6. Also, be sure that you have placed the chassis within reach of all required AC power sources.

If you are placing multiple switches in a stacked configuration, carefully stack the remaining switches, one on top of the other. Up to eight switches may be stacked to form a single virtual chassis. Be sure to maintain adequate clearance at the front, rear, left, and right side of all switches (see page 6). Also, be sure that you have placed all switches in the stack within reach of required AC power sources.

Note. If you are installing a single (i.e., standalone) switch, continue to“Connections and Cabling” on page 11 for additional setup procedures.

Rack-Mountingthe Switch

Refer to the important guidelines below before installing the OmniSwitch chassis in a rack.

It is recommended that two people install the switch in the rack—oneperson to hold the chassis and position it in the rack, and a second person to secure the chassis to the rack using attachment screws (not supplied).

Alcatel-Lucentprovides tworack-mountflanges with each OmniSwitch 6850 Series switch. These flanges support standard19-inchrack mount installations.

These flanges must be attached to the chassis before the switch can be rack mounted.

Note. If you are installing the switch in a23-inchwide rack,Alcatel-Lucentoffers optional23-inchrack-mount-ing hardware. For more information, contact your AlcatelLucent representative.

Alcatel-Lucentdoes not providerack-mountscrews. Use the screws supplied by the rack vendor.

To prevent a rack from becoming top heavy, it is recommended that you install heavier equipment at the bottom of the rack whenever possible.

If you are installing the switch in a relay rack, be sure to install and secure the rack as per the rack manufacturer’s specifications.

Review page 6 for important chassis airflow and access recommendations before installing.

Rack Mounting Steps

To rack-mountthe switch, follow the steps below:

Note. Rack-mountflanges may comefactory-installedin some cases. If this is the case, skip steps 1 and 2 below.

1Align the holes in the provided rack-mountflanges with the four threaded holes in the OmniSwitch chassis. These threaded holes are located in the left and right sides of the chassis, near the front panel.

2Attach the flanges to the chassis using the provided Phillips-headscrews. Be sure to tighten each of the screws firmly using a Phillips screwdriver.

3After the rack-mountflanges are secured to the chassis, mark the holes on the rack where the switch is to be installed.

4Lift and position the switch until the rack-mountflanges are flush with the rack post.

5Align the holes in the flanges with the rack holes that were marked in step 3.

6Once the holes are aligned, insert a rack-mountscrew (not provided) through thebottom hole of each flange. Tighten both screws until they are secure.

Attaching the Switch to the Rack

Note. Be sure to install the screws in thebottom hole of each flange, as shown, before proceeding.

7Once the screws at the bottom of each flange are secure, install the remaining two rack-mountscrews. Be sure that all screws are securely tightened.

8If you are installing multiple switches in a rack to form a stacked configuration, repeat steps 1 through 7 for all switches in the stack.

Note. When rack mounting multiple switches in a stacked configuration, be sure to place all switches in verticallyadjacent rack positions. This will ensure that all required stacking cables will have adequate length for the installation.

More Information on User Accounts. A user account includes a login name, password, and user privileges. Privileges determine whether the user has read or write access to the switch and which commands the user is authorized to execute.

For detailed information on setting up and modifying user accounts and user privileges, refer to the “Managing Switch User Accounts” chapter of your OmniSwitch 6800/ 6850/9000 Switch Management Guide.

Assigning an IP Address to the Switch

Assigning an IP address to your OmniSwitch 6850 Series switch is an important step in the setup process.

Remote sessions such as Telnet, FTP, and WebView require an IP address. The IP address for these session types serves as a destination point for the remote session. Therefore, before the switch can support any remote login sessions, a valid IP address must be configured.

To assign an IP address to a switch, simply assign an IP address to the switch’s default VLAN 1 by entering the ip interface command at the CLI prompt. Be sure that the command begins with the command syntax:

->ip interface address

exactly as shown, followed by the IP address. For example:

->ip interface vlan_1 address 172.2.120.1 vlan 1

For information on assigning IP addresses in a stacked configuration, refer to the OmniSwitch 6850 Hardware Users Guide.

Your First Login Session 15

Unlocking Session Types

Security is a key feature on OmniSwitch 6850 Series switches. As a result, when you access the switch for the first time, you must use a direct console port connection. All other session types (Telnet, FTP, WebView, SNMP, etc.) are “locked out” until they are manually unlocked by the user.

The CLI command used to unlock session types is

aaaauthentication.

Note. When you unlock session types, you are granting switch access tonon-localsessions (e.g., Telnet). As a result, users who know the correct user login and password will have remote access to the switch. For more information on switch security, refer to the “Managing Switch User Accounts” chapter of yourOmniSwitch 6800/ 6850/9000 Switch Management Guide.

Unlocking All Session Types

To unlock all session types, enter the following command syntax at the CLI prompt:

->aaa authentication default local

Unlocking Specified Session Types

You can also unlock session types on a one-by-onebasis. For example, to unlock Telnet sessions only, enter the following command:

->aaa authentication telnet local

To unlock WebView (HTTP) sessions only, enter the following command:

->aaa authentication http local

You cannot specify more than one session type in a single command line. However, you can still unlock multiple session types by using the aaa authentication command in succession. For example:

->aaa authentication http local->aaa authentication telnet local->aaa authentication ftp local
