IBM 8265 ATM switch

Set ip address on ethernet port

Note subnet mask needs to be entered in hex! i.e. 255.255.255.0 == ff.ff.ff.00

ibm8265_01# set device ip_address eth 192.168.1.27 ff.ff.ff.00 
IP address and mask set
ibm8265_01# set device default_gateway 192.168.1.1 
Default gateway set
ibm8265_01# 

Reboot is not needed, access to telnet will now work. Note, ssh is not supported.

$ telnet ibm8265-01
Trying 192.168.1.27...
Connected to ibm8265-01.

Module 13 is disabled, let's enable and disable it (connected and isolated in IBM speak):-

ibm8265_01# set module 13 connected 
Slot 13:Module set
ibm8265_01# 
ibm8265_01# set module 13 isolated 
Slot 13:Module set
ibm8265_01#

Isolated means it can be swapped whilst the chassis is powered on. Slots 1 - 17 are for network modules, slots 18 & 19 are for power control modules. Note that slots 9 & 10 HAVE to be used for the CPSW module in single fabric mode, if a redundant CPSW module is fitted, it has to go in slots 11 & 12.

Show port status

Port 17.1 is connected to a Fore / Marconi PCA200e 155MB/s pci card on a computer running Centos 6.5, seen below, atmsigd has been started but not ilmid, in the second example, ilmid has been started.

Set port config

I want to set blade 15, port 1 to be a UNI port so it can speak to a network adapter, but it is currently set to PNNI to talk to another switch:-

ibm8265_01# show port 15.1 

      Type Mode     Status
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
15.01:PNNI enabled  DOWN:Establishing  
ibm8265_01# 

ibm8265_01# set port 15.1 disable 
15.01:Port set

ibm8265_01# set port 15.1 enable uni 
15.01:Port set

ibm8265_01# show port 15.1 verbose 

      Type Mode     Status
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
15.01: UNI enabled  DOWN:Establishing  

UNI Type             : Private
Signalling Version   : Auto
ILMI status          : DOWN:Establishing  
.....edited.....

So now it is set to UNI, but no ILMI so far, this is because the far end has not had ilmid started.

Saving Configuration

Changes are activated immediately they are made, but are not saved to nv ram so will be lost on a device reload. There are several save options, but save all does the lot in one go.

ibm8265_01# save all 
ibm8265_01# 

ip over pvc

LANE

LAN Emulation is defined in a Lan Emulation Server (LES), and the atm address where it is running is found through a Lan Emulation Configuration Server (LECS).

The CPSW module can run one LES, but no LECS, however the 8210 MSS module can run many LES for both ethernet and token ring, and consequently needs to run a LECS.

The LECS atm address is usually the “Well Known Address”, this is used for service discovery and is

47.00.79.00.00.00.00.00.00.00.00.00.00.00.a0.3e.00.00.01.00

but you already knew that :-}
