Notas estudo Converged Campus ERS Solution Installation and Configuration

Após realizar o curso 6721 – Converged Campus ERS Solution Installation and Configuration da Avaya aqui ficam as minhas notas e alguma da terminologia.

Download Notas Converged Campus ERS Solution Installation and Configuration

Irei em breve colocar as notas sobre o 6722 – ERS 8800-8600-8300 Advanced Configuration and Maintenance

Terminologia:

Distributed MultiLink Trunking (DMLT) – Allows you to aggregate similar ports from different modules. MLT provides module redundancy through Distributed MultiLink Trunking.

interswitch trunking (IST) – A feature that uses one or more parallel point-to-point links to connect two aggregation switches. The two aggregation switches use this channel to share information and operate as a single logical switch. Only one interswitch trunk can exist on each Split Multilink Trunking (SMLT) aggregation switch.
microflow – A single instance of an application-to-application packet flow identified by source address, destination address, protocol ID, and source port.

Nortel Networks command line interface (NNCLI) – Nortel Networks command line interface (NNCLI) is a common CLI that follows the industry standard. NNCLI is a common user interface for device management across Nortel products.

operation, administration, and maintenance (OAM) – All the tasks necessary for providing, maintaining, or modifying switching system services.

Protocol Independent Multicast, Split MultiLink Trunking (PIM-SMLT) – Builds a virtual switch that represents the two switches of the split multilink trunk core.

Read Write All (RWA) – An access class that lets users access all menu items and editable fields.

Routed SMLT (RSMLT) – Provides full redundancy in core networks and rapid failover—eliminating routing protocol timer dependencies when network failures occur.

RSMLT VLAN – A virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) with RSMLT enabled for router redundancy and protected by active-active SMLT aggregation switch default gateways.

Simple Loop Prevention Protocol (SLPP) – Is used to prevent loops in a SMLT network.

Single Link SMLT (SLT)
SMLT aggregation switch – Connects to multiple wiring closet switches, edge switches, or Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) devices.

SMLT client – A switch located at the edge of the network, such as in a wiring closet or CPE. An SMLT client switch performs link aggregation but does not require Split MultiLink Trunking (SMLT) intelligence.

Spanning Tree Group (STG) – A collection of ports in one spanning tree instance.

Split MultiLink Trunking (SMLT) – A Nortel extension to IEEE 802.3ad, provides nodal and link failure protection and flexible bandwidth scaling to improve on the level of Layer 2 resiliency.

Virtual Link Aggregation Control Protocol (VLACP) – A Layer 2 handshaking protocol which can detect end-to-end failure between two physical Ethernet interfaces.

Check MD5Checksum

Full permissions to execute the bin

[[email protected] ~]# chmod 777 vpfm30r3_setup_linux64_b1481.bin

Disable SELinux and restart

[[email protected] ~]#vi /etc/selinux/config

# This file controls the state of SELinux on the system.
# SELINUX= can take one of these three values:
#       enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced.
#       permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing.
#       disabled - SELinux is fully disabled.
SELINUX=disabled
# SELINUXTYPE= type of policy in use. Possible values are:
#       targeted - Only targeted network daemons are protected.
#       strict - Full SELinux protection.
SELINUXTYPE=targeted

[[email protected] ~]# shutdown -r now

[[email protected] ~]# sestatus
SELinux status:                 disabled

Start VNCServer like a Normal Desktop and setup a password

[[email protected] ~]# vncserver :1

New 'vpfm:1 (root)' desktop is vpfm:1

Starting applications specified in /root/.vnc/xstartup
Log file is /root/.vnc/vpfm:1.log

[[email protected] ~]# vi /root/.vnc/xstartup
#!/bin/sh

# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:
unset SESSION_MANAGER
exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

[[email protected] ~]# vncserver -kill :1

[[email protected] ~]# vncserver :1

Connect to host vpfm:1 using VNCViewer

Open a terminal Window and execute

[[email protected] ~]# ./vpfm30r3_setup_linux64_b1481.bin

Next.
..

To get the licenses from Avaya you need to change the hosts file

[[email protected] ~]# vi /etc/hosts
 # Do not remove the following line, or various programs
 # that require network functionality will fail.
 10.10.10.36     vpfm.cocheno.com vpfm
 127.0.0.1       localhost

Next.

Keep the “Notice”, you will need this info to get the licenses

Setup the Primary Security Server Password

The PostCheck logs reported a few errors regarding chmod access to perl and kbmd service (no installed)…So I installed again and they disappeared.

chmod /opt/avaya/ucm/perl/perl5.8.8/bin

service kbmd not installed properly

Checking the VPFM service

[[email protected] ~]# service kbmd status
 VPFM server is not running.
 Bit mode is 64.

 

Warning: You must have a valid licenses to run the kbmd service

Install Licenses

Get the licenses from https://www.avayadatalicensing.com/ , you will need the IP,Notice and LAC

Open the URL https://vpfm/ecc/index.jsp?contentUrl=licensessing.jsp and upload the licenses

Login using with admin and the password defined for Primary Security Server

OPen a shell and start the VPFM service

[[email protected] ~]# service kbmd status
 VPFM server is not running.
 Bit mode is 64.

[[email protected] ~]# service kbmd staus
bad argument provided here
Application control script
Usage:
kbmd {start | stop | status | restart} [ -verbose ]
start:   starts VPFM application
stop:    stops VPFM application
status:  reports status of VPFM application (running or stopped)
restart: stops (if running) and then starts VPFM application
-verbose: use this switch to print messages to the screen (optional)

[[email protected] ~]# service kbmd start
[1] 30893

[[email protected] ~]# service kbmd status
VPFM server is running.
Bit mode is 64.

VPFM Ready to go!
