Menu-driven console and scriptable command line interface

The menu-driven console and the command line interfaces provide the same configuration options as
the BBI, plus the added benefits of an out-of-band connection and CLI scripting (Figure 6).
There are three methods of accessing these interfaces:
• Locally via the front panel RS-232 console port on each interconnect switch.
• Remotely using serial line IP (SLIP) via the front panel RS-232 console port on each interconnect
switch.
• Remotely using a console Telnet session via any interconnect switch external Ethernet port.

Simple network management protocol and remote monitoring

The GbE Interconnect Switch supports industry-standard SNMP management information bases (MIBs),
HP enterprise switch MIBs, environmental traps, and RMON groups 1 (statistics), 2 (history), 3
(alarms), and 9 (events). The SNMP agents are pre-installed in the interconnect switch firmware. Four
community strings and SNMP trap manager hosts can be configured per switch. An interconnect
switch SNMP scripting utility and HP recommended example scripts are included.
This capability allows the interconnect switch to be monitored remotely from an SNMP/RMON
network management station such as
may also be configured through the HP OpenView Network Node Manager. The unique interconnect
switch integration with Insight Manager 7 provides the following additional features:
Pre-registered (compiled) GbE Interconnect Switch MIBs.
Automatic discovery and identification of the interconnect switches upon registration of MIBs.
Automatic receiving of traps and events from the interconnect switches upon registration of MIBs.
