Hardware features This section provides information about the hardware features of the Avaya Ethernet Routing Switch 4500 Series switch platforms.
  • Page 16: Cooling Fans

    Ethernet Routing Switch 4548GT-PWR, and Avaya Ethernet Routing Switch 4550T-PWR, can use an optional 470-Watt (W) Avaya Ethernet Routing Switch RPS 15 redundant power supply. The RPS 15 power supply chassis is two units high and can accommodate up to three RPS modules, each supporting up to four devices, to provide redundant power and uninterrupted operation in power failure.

  • Page 18: Auto Unit Replacement

    System configuration fundamentals Auto Unit Replacement You can use the Auto Unit Replacement (AUR) feature to replace a unit from a stack while retaining the configuration of the unit. This feature requires the stack power to be on during the unit replacement. The main feature of the AUR is the ability to retain the configuration (CFG) image of a unit in a stack during a unit replacement.
  • Page 19: Aur Function

    Auto Unit Replacement Table 3: show stack auto-unit-replacement fields Field Definition Auto Unit Replacement Auto-Restore Enable: During a unit replacement, the configuration will be automatically restored to the new unit. Disable: During a unit replacement, the configuration will not be restored automatically.
  • Page 20 System configuration fundamentals the CFG image is called the Associated Unit (AU) of the CFG mirror image. The MAC Address of the AU is called the Associated MAC Address (AMA) of the CFG mirror image. An active CFG Mirror Image is a CFG mirror image that has its AU in the stack. An INACTIVE CFG Mirror Image is a CFG mirror image for which the associated AU is removed from the stack.
  • Page 21 Auto Unit Replacement Figure 1: CFG mirror process in stack Adding a unit In a stack that has no any INACTIVE CFG mirror images, a new unit causes the CFG image of the new unit to be mirrored in the stack. For example, in Figure 2: CFG mirror images in the stack after adding unit 4 on page 22, after you add unit 4 to the stack, the CFG 4 mirror image...
  • Page 22 System configuration fundamentals Figure 2: CFG mirror images in the stack after adding unit 4 Removing an NBU When you remove an NBU from a stack, the related CFG mirror image in the stack becomes INACTIVE. The AUR feature ensures that the stack always has two copies of an INACTIVE CFG mirror image.
  • Page 23 Auto Unit Replacement Figure 3: CFG mirror images after removing unit 4 Removing a BU When you remove a BU, the TEMP-BU assumes the role of the BU. Because all the CFG mirror images of the NBUs reside in the removed BU, the TEMP-BU mirrors all the CFG images of the NBUs in the stack.

  • Page 25 Auto Unit Replacement Important: Restore a CFG image to a new unit happens only if you meet the following conditions. • The AUR feature is enabled. • At least one INACTIVE CFG mirror image exists in the stack. • The MAC Address of the new unit is different from all the AMA of the INACTIVE CFG mirror images in the stack.

  • Page 27: Diagnostics Aur (Daur)

    Auto Unit Replacement 1. When a stand-alone switch joins an AAUR-enabled stack, the switch software image is inspected. 2. If the switch software image differs from the stack software image, the AAUR functionality downloads the stack software image to the joining unit. 3.
  • Page 28 System configuration fundamentals When the switch finishes the diagnostic image version update, the switch performs an AAUR check. If the new unit has the same agent image as the stack, the unit reboots. If the new unit has a different agent image, the switch performs an AAUR. Note: The new unit added on a stack must have an agent image with software release 5.1.0 or higher or AAUR and DAUR cannot upgrade the new unit.
  • Page 29: Stack Forced Mode

    Stack Forced Mode Large image file If the agent image size exceeds 6 Mb, the switch cannot perform the DAUR. The switch sends an error message to the base unit. You must perform a manual image upgrade or downgrade in this situation for both the diagnostic and agent images. Stack Forced Mode Stack Forced Mode allows one or both units to become stand-alone switches if a stack of two units breaks.
  • Page 30: Ipv6 Management

    IPv6 interface and then configure the switch IPv6 address. If you use Telnet, SSH or EDM to change the settings, the switch will lose IPv6 connectivity to the switch. Avaya recommends that you change the settings with the Console Interface to switch or use an IPv4 address for management.

  • Page 32: Address Formats

    System configuration fundamentals If you manually configure interface IDs or MAC addresses (or both), no relationship between the MAC address and the interface ID is necessary. A manually configured interface ID can be longer or shorter than 64 bits. Address formats The format for representing an IPv6 address is n:n:n:n:n:n:n:n n is the hexadecimal representation of 16 bits in the address.
  • Page 33: Comparison Of Ipv4 And Ipv6

    IPv6 management extensions that contain options for destination processing. If the router is an intermediate node, IPv6 examines the header extensions that contain forwarding options. By examining only the extension headers that apply to the operations it performs, IPv6 reduces the amount of time and processing resources required to process a packet.

  • Page 40: Policy-Enabled Networking

    System configuration fundamentals Policy-enabled networking With the policy-enabled networking, you can implement classes of services and assign priority levels to different types of traffic. You can also configure policies to monitor the characteristics of traffic. For example, in policy-enabled networking, you can determine the sources, destinations, and protocols used by the traffic.
  • Page 41: Port Mirroring

    You can specify port-based mirroring for ingress and egress at a specific port, or address based mirroring, either source or destination. You also can attach a probe device, such as an Avaya StackProbe*, or equivalent, to the designated monitor port.
  • Page 42: Autosensing And Autonegotiation

    Autosensing occurs when the attached device cannot autonegotiate or uses a form of autonegotiation that is not compatible with the IEEE 802.3z autonegotiation standard. If it is not possible to sense the duplex mode of the attached device, the Avaya Ethernet Routing Switch 4500 Series reverts to half-duplex mode.
  • Page 43: Configuring Cana Using Acli

    Custom Autonegotiation Advertisements You may not want a port to advertise all supported speed and duplex modes in the following situations: • If a network can support only a 10 Mb/s connection, you can configure a port to advertise only 10 Mb/s capabilities. Devices that uses autonegotiation to connect to this port connect at 10 Mb/s, even if both devices are capable of higher speeds.

  • Page 56: Led Activity During Software Download

    During the software download, the port LEDs light one after another in a chasing pattern, except for ports 35, 36, 47, and 48 on an Avaya Ethernet Routing Switch 4548GT. This chasing pattern is initially fast as the software image is downloaded but gradually slows as the switch erases the flash memory.
  • Page 57 Avaya Energy Saver The power consumption savings of each switch is determined by the number of ports with AES enabled and by the power consumption of PoE ports that are powered off. If AES for a port is set to disabled, the port is not powered off, irrespective of the PoE configuration. AES turns off the power to a port only when PoE is enabled globally, the port AES is enabled, and the PoE priority for the port is configured to low.

    • non-tagged—frames are not tagged with 802.1Q priority. • auto—an attempt is made to tag frames based on the tagging value the Avaya IP phone receives with the LLDP-MED Network Policy TLV. If there is no LLDP-MED Network Policy information available, an attempt is made to tag frames based on server configuration.

    Chapter 8: Configuration reference The sections in this chapter provide information on the factory default configuration. Factory default configuration When you initially access a newly installed switch or you reset a switch to factory defaults, the switch is in a factory default configuration. This factory default configuration is the base configuration from which you build the switch configuration.
