1 INTRODUCTION

This reference manual describes the console commands for the SmartCell 6A000 and SmartCell ZX-250ATM switches. The two switches share a common console interface and are referred to in this manual as the SmartCell6A000/ZX-250.

Audience and Scope

The manual is intended for network administrators and others responsible for maintaining the SmartCell 6A000/ZX-250.You do not need to read the manual from start to finish. You can use it to study the console commands you use.

Definitions

The manual is organized alphabetically by switch attribute.

The definition of a switch attribute is a function that manipulates the switch in a specific way. For example, buselan.

The definition of an operator is the active verb that makes the switch attribute perform a specific task. For example, show.

The definition of a command is the combination of an operator plus a switch attribute. For example, show buselan.

Content

Chapter 2, "SmartCell 6A000/ZX-250Commands," gives definitions, descriptions, and examples of all available commands on the SmartCell 6A000 and SmartCellZX-250switches.

Chapter 3, “Boot Load Commands” gives definitions, descriptions, and examples of the low-levelboot load commands.

Appendix A, "Acronyms," spells out the ATM acronyms used in this manual as well as those found in the SmartCell 6A000 User Guide, SmartCell ZX-250User Guide, and SmartCell ZX Administrator Installation Guide.

Appendix B, “Cause Codes,” describes the codes that appear in some console messages.

Appendix C, "Technical Support," gives instructions for contacting Cabletron by telephone, fax, electronic mail, and the World Wide Web.

Introduction

Sections

Read "Switch Attribute" for an example and definition of the various sections under each switch attribute as well as a description of how the manual is organized.

Each section begins with a switch attribute heading (for example, "PVCByID"). Then come the details of relevant operators, parameters, and commands.

Most sections have two parameter tables—onefor input and another for output. The tables contain the parameter names, descriptions, and definitions of their values, field sizes, and defaults.

The section ends with examples copied from the switch console for each console command for that switch attribute.

Conventions

The SmartCell 6A000/ZX-250Reference Manual uses the following conventions to convey instructions and information:

Information you enter (console commands and input parameters) is shown in bold Courier 10 font and requires a space between operator and switch attribute.

Input and output parameters are shown in [Square Brackets].

Input definitions are shown in <anglebrackets>, as joined text and not case sensitive.

Filter flags </s> (summary) or </d> (detail) are available with certain show commands and apply to different information viewing levels. Filter flags require a space between them and the full command. For example, show client /d. The/s option is the same as the standard default option. You can find more details at the relevant switch attribute sections. See the following examples:

Abbreviations

Pay close attention to how switch attributes appear in each section heading. Switch attributes are not case sensitive. If the heading states BUSStat, you must type busstat and notbusstats, because the switch will not recognize the latter. See the following example:

switch_prompt # show busstats

Command busstats not Valid for Action show

Type Help <command>

for help

switch_prompt

switch_prompt

# show busstat

switch_prompt #

You can, however, abbreviate the switch attribute to the extent that it is unique. For example, instead of typing show porttrafficcongestion, you can just type show portt. The same can be done with operators. Instead of typing modify, you can type mod. You should type at least three characters for any operator. For example,

switch_prompt #

modify portmode

PortNumber(ALL)

:

PortMode(SONET)

:

switch_prompt #

 

switch_prompt #

mod portm

PortNumber(ALL)

:

PortMode(SONET)

:

switch_prompt #

 

See "Switch Attribute" for an explanation of how the sections are organized.

If you want information on a specific command, type ? orhelp before typing the command and you will get a brief description of the command and all its input parameters. If you want information about a specific input parameter while executing a command, type? orhelp after it appears on the console and it will give you details relating to that parameter. For example,

switch_prompt

Other Reference Options

You will find a list of acronyms, details about technical support, and an index at the back of this manual. The index contains page references for all switch attribute sections, command parameters, operators, command descriptions and command examples. There is also a table of commands at the end of this chapter. It lists all switch attributes by their operator.

See the SmartCell 6A000 User Guide and SmartCell ZX-250User Guide for details on how to use the switch. The user guides contain information about switch configuration, maintenance, and SNMP (simple network management protocol), as well as an overview of switch capabilities.
