If the user chooses not to use the wizard initially, the session defaults to the
CLI mode with a warning to refer the documentation. During a subsequent
login, the user may again elect not to run the setup wizard. Once the wizard
has established configuration, however, the wizard is presented only if the
user resets the switch to the factory default settings. While the wizard is
running, the system does not display any unsolicited or unrelated status
messages. For example, the system does not display event notification or
system status messages.
After completing the wizard, the user is given a chance to save his
configuration and continue to the CLI. If the user chooses to discard his
configuration, any restart of the wizard must be from the beginning. When
the user chooses to restart the wizard, any configuration the user saved
previously automatically is offered for the user to accept. The user may elect
to correct only a few items instead of re-entering all the data.
Since a switch may be powered on in the field without a serial connection, the
switch waits 60 seconds for the user to respond to the setup wizard question
in instances where no configuration files exist. If there is no response, the
switch continues normal operation using the default factory configuration.
While waiting for the response from the user, normal switch operation will
continue, including but not limited to:
If BOOTP/DHCP is supported and enabled by default, the switch
attempts to get its address.
The switch continues to switch traffic.
The switch continues do MAC learning. If spanning-tree is on by default,
the switch participates in the spanning-tree protocol.
The functional flow diagram in Figure 2-1 illustrates the procedures for the
Easy Setup Wizard.
