Initial setup

You must define three TCP/IP settings for the Network Management Card before it can operate on the network:
• IP address of the Management Card
• Subnet mask
• IP address of the default gateway
Caution: Do not use the loopback address (127.0.0.1) as the default gateway. Doing so disables the card. You must then log on using a serial connection and reset TCP/IP settings to their defaults.
To configure the TCP/IP settings, see the Network Management Card Installation Manual, available on the Network Management Card Utility CD and in printed form. For detailed information on how to use a DHCP server to configure the TCP/IP settings at a Management Card, see “TCP/IP and Communication Settings” on page 54.

For more information about the internal user interfaces, see “Web Interface” on page 28 and “Command Line Interface” on page 8.
2Network Management Card User’s Guide

Access priority for logging on

Only one user at a time can log on to the Management Card. The priority for access, beginning with the highest priority, is as follows:
• Local access to the command line interface from a computer with a direct serial connection to the Management Card
• Telnet or SSH access to the command line interface from a remote computer
• Web access, either directly or through InfraStruXure Central
Note: SNMP has Write + and Write access. Write + has top access and enables logging on when another user is already logged on. Write access is equivalent to Web access.
See “SNMP” on page 61 for information about how SNMP access to the Management Card is controlled.

Types of user accounts

The Management Card has three levels of access (Administrator, Device User, and Read-Only User), which are protected by user name and password requirements.
• An Administrator can use all the menus in the Web interface and all of the commands in the command line interface. The default user name and password are both apc.
• A Device User can access only the following:
– In the Web interface, the menus on the UPS tab and the event and data logs, accessible under
the Events and Data headings on the left navigation menu of the Logs tab.The event and data logs display no button to clear the log.
– In the command line interface, the equivalent features and options.
The default user name is device, and the default password is apc.
• A Read-Only User has the following restricted access:
– Access through the Web interface only.
– Access to the same tabs and menus as a Device User, but without the capability to delete data
or use file transfer options. The event and data logs display no button to clear the log.
The default user name is readonly, and the default password is apc.
To set User Name and Password values for the three account types, see “Setting user access” on page 50.
Network Management Card User’s Guide3

How to Recover from a Lost Password

You can use a local computer that connects to the Management Card through the serial port to access the command line interface.
1. Select a serial port at the local computer, and disable any service that uses that port.
2. Connect the provided serial cable (part number 940-0299) to the selected port at the computer and to the configuration port at the Management Card.
3. Run a terminal program (such as HyperTerminal 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, and no flow control.
®
) and configure the selected port for 9600 bps,
4. Press
ENTER, repeatedly if necessary, to display the User Name prompt. If you are unable to
display the User Name prompt, verify the following:
– The serial port is not in use by another application.
– The terminal settings are correct as specified in step 3.
– The correct cable is being used as specified in step 2.
5. Press the Reset button. The Status LED will flash alternately orange and green. Press the Reset button a second time immediately while the LED is flashing to reset the user name and password to their defaults temporarily.
6. Press
ENTER, repeatedly if necessary, to display the User Name prompt again, then use the
default, apc, for the user name and password. (If you take longer than 30 seconds to log on after the User Name prompt is redisplayed, you must repeat step 5 and log on again.)
7. At the command line interface, use the following commands to change the User Name and Password settings, both of which are now apc:
user -an yourAdministratorName
user -ap yourAdministratorPassword
For example, to change the Administrator user name to Admin, type:
user -an Admin
8. Type quit or exit to log off, reconnect any serial cable you disconnected, and restart any service you disabled.

Watchdog Features

Overview

To detect internal problems and recover from unanticipated inputs, the Management Card uses internal, system-wide watchdog mechanisms. When it restarts to recover from an internal problem, a System: Warmstart event is recorded in the event log.

Network interface watchdog mechanism

The Management Card implements internal watchdog mechanisms to protect itself from becoming inaccessible over the network. For example, if the Management Card does not receive any network traffic for 9.5 minutes (either direct traffic, such as SNMP, or broadcast traffic, such as an Address Resolution Protocol [ARP] request), it assumes that there is a problem with its network interface and restarts.

Resetting the network timer

To ensure that the Management Card does not restart if the network is quiet for 9.5 minutes, the Management Card attempts to contact the default gateway every 4.5 minutes. If the gateway is present, it responds to the Management Card, and that response restarts the 9.5-minute timer. If your application does not require or have a gateway, specify the IP address of a computer that is running on the network most of the time and is on the same subnet. The network traffic of that computer will restart the 9.5­minute timer frequently enough to prevent the Management Card from restarting.
Network Management Card User’s Guide7

Command Line Interface

How To Log On

Overview

You can use either a local (serial) connection, or a remote (Telnet or SSH) connection with a computer on the same network as the Network Management Card to access the command line interface.
Use case-sensitive user name and password entries to log on (by default, apc and apc for an Administrator, or device and apc for a Device User). A Read-Only User cannot access the command line interface.
If you cannot remember your user name or password, see “How to Recover from a Lost Password” on page 4.
Note: The command line interface does not display information about the Symmetra PX 250 or Symmetra PX 500 UPS.

Remote access to the command line interface

You can access the command line interface through Telnet or SSH. Telnet is enabled by default. Enabling SSH disables Telnet.
To enable or disable these access methods, use the Web interface. On the Administration tab, select Network on the top menu bar, and then the access option under Console on the left navigation menu.
Telnet for basic access. Telnet provides the basic security of authentication by user name and
password, but not the high-security benefits of encryption.
To use Telnet to access the command line interface:
1. From a computer that has access to network on which the Management Card is installed, at a command prompt, type
telnet 139.225.6.133, when the Management Card uses the default Telnet port of 23), and
ENTER.
press
If the Management Card uses a non-default port number (from 5000 to 32768), you must include a colon or a space, depending on your Telnet client, between the IP address (or DNS name) and the port number. (These are commands for general usage: some clients don’t allow you to specify the port as an argument and some types of Linux might want extra commands).
2. Enter the user name and password (by default, apc and apc for an Administrator, or device and apc for a Device User).
SSH for high-security access. If you use the high security of SSL for the Web interface, use SSH for
access to the command line interface. SSH encrypts user names, passwords, and transmitted data. The interface, user accounts, and user access rights are the same whether you access the command line interface through SSH or Telnet, but to use SSH, you must first configure SSH and have an SSH client program installed on your computer.
