Chapter 1 System Administration Overview

GigaVu™ Functions and Capabilities


The GigaVu™ local manager is an application Alloptic® developed that runs over an
embedded web server on each chassis. GigaVu™ resides in the Switch Controller Module
(SCM) of the edgeGEAR 2000 and the Management port of the edge 200.
Using web-based point and click technology, the operator can easily configure all aspects
of the GigaVu™ network. Additionally, it actively monitors the status of all system
components and regulates user privileges and security. GigaVu™ is SNMP compliant. A
common workstation with a 100BaseT Network Interface Card (NIC) that runs
Microsoft® Internet Explorer version 5.0 or higher is required to communicate with the
SCM/Mgmt port over a Fast Ethernet Connection.
The GigaVu™ operator plugs the workstation into the Mgmt RJ45 port, activates the
application, and logs in. The direct connection between the workstation and port requires a
Category 5 Cross-over cable.
An opening Home screen presents a series of top level tabs that allow access to the
GigaVu™ functions (Figure 1). The tabs displayed are dependent upon the user access
privileges the System Administrator sets up. Click on the appropriate tab to navigate to the
various functions.

Saving Configuration Data

Saving Configuration Data


Throughout this chapter, you will use a variety of windows to perform system
administration functions. Each configuration window has a Submit Button that allows you
to save configuration changes to system memory. System memory is working memory. As
such, it is dependent on a persistent memory source to maintain configuration data.
A system reset or reboot uses flash-memory for its configuration data source. The File
Services tab provides access to the Save/Erase Configuration window, which allows you
to save your changes in Flash Memory.

System Administration
GigaVu™ provides several system administration functions. A System Administrator may
manage GigaVu™ operator access, chassis configurations, system alarm reporting, and
SNMP configuration. GigaVu™ also provides tools for maintaining system software
loads. The System Administrator can upload and download both image software and
configuration data.
System control functions are linked to GigaVu™ to allow hardware provisioning, status
reporting, performance monitoring, and SNMP configuration management from a
workstation. Cascaded navigation tabs provide access to system control windows where
configuration changes are executed and operational status is retrieved. See Figure 2 for the
System Administration tabs.
The Operator Management function governs GigaVu™ system access. Four default logins
are shipped with the system. Navigation tabs vary according to access privileges. Access
privileges are covered in “Add, Delete, Modify Operator Access” on page 11.

Best Practice: Only ten users may be configured for system access. Five can be
logged in simultaneously; however, Alloptic recommends that only one user be
logged in at a time.

If the default chassis IP Addresses are changed, and then lost, access the RS232 port to
recover them. See the System Maintenance Manual for the procedure.

GigaVu™ System Administration Navigation Paths


Login
When you login to the GigaVu™ system, the Home window is presented. The Home
window is the initial entry point to the system and contains the main navigation tabs
available to you. These tabs are accessible from any window. You select a path to a
function with a single click on its tab. Each subsequent window will present additional
tabs for the navigation options available to you. The System Administration Navigation
Tree (Figure 2) displays a visual representation of the path to each System Administration
function.

Chapter 2 IP Management and Security
Provisioning Out of Band Management
Out of Band Access allows access to the GigaVu™ manager through the local 10/100
Ethernet management interfaces. The edgeGEAR 2000 has two management ports
provided on the SCM. The edge 200 has one management port.
To provision Out of Band Access (Figure 3 and Figure 4), perform the following steps.
1. Click on the System Provisioning tab.
2. Click on the Admin tab.
• The IP Address Configuration window will open.
3. In the Chassis Primary column, enter the IP Address for the Local Management Port.
4. Enter the Subnet Mask for the Local Management Port.
5. Press Submit.
6. Execute the Save Configuration procedure to save the updated configuration in
Flash Memory.

Provisioning Inband Access
Inband Access allows a Service Provider to access the GigaVu™ manager through the
Gigabit Ethernet ports. Formerly, GigaVu™ access was limited to just the Out of Band
Fast Ethernet Local Management ports. Now, the Service Provider can set up inband
access to the local GigaVu™ manager. This helps to reduce costs and the complexity of
having to provision local management ports when requirements dictate that it is preferable
to consolidate management interfaces inband.
The edgeGEAR 2000 has two management ports provided on the SCM. The edge 200 has
one management port.
To provision Inband Access (Figure 3 and Figure 4), proceed with the following:
1. Click on the System Provisioning tab.
2. Click on the Admin tab.
• The IP Address Configuration window will open.
3. In the Inband Admin column, enter the IP Address to be used for Inband Access.
4. Enter the Subnet Mask to be used for Inband Access.
• Do not use the same IP subnet used for management ports 1 and 2.
5. Enter the VLAN to be used.
• The VLAN ID must be unique, not used elsewhere in the Alloptic chassis.
• VLANs 0-63 are reserved and cannot be used.
6. Enter the Maximum Bandwidth for the Inband Access Interface (.064Mb to 10Mb.
.512Mb recommended).
7. Select the Egress Port (the Ethernet port that is providing Inband Access).
8. Press Submit.
9. Change the status of the Inband Access Interface to Enabled.
10. Press Submit.
11. Execute the Save Configuration procedure to save the updated configuration in
Flash Memory.

NOTE: To modify existing inband configuration, disable the Admin State first.
Then follow the above steps.

The Access List window allows a service provider to set up filtered access to a chassis.
Filtered access allows a given management station (or host computer) to gain access to the
GigaVu™ capabilities based on an IP Address filter. The Access List will allow only what
is configured.
Access Lists can be configured for each SCM/Management port, in addition to the Inband
Access Interface. By default, if there are no addresses specified in the Access List for a
system chassis, any host computer can access it.

Configuring an Access List

Caution: If the first address is not entered in properly, you can loose access to the
system.
Caution: Enter the subnet you are on first to prevent blocking all access.

Note: See the System Maintenance Manual for instructions on clearing the
Access List.

Note: This feature may interact with the Network Address Translation (NAT) and
other IP Addressing schemes.

1. Click on the System Provisioning tab.


2. Click on the Admin tab.
3. Click on the Access List tab.
• The Access List Configuration window will appear.
4. From the drop down box, enter the interface for which you want to filter access.
5. Select an Index for the Access List item you want to provision.
6. Fill in the desired value for the Filter IP Address.
7. If required, add a value for the Filter Mask.
8. Press the ADD button.
9. Execute the Save Configuration procedure to save the updated configuration in
Flash Memory.
