Figure 2 Mounting Bracket for 2-post Racks

19" rack with front and back rack posts — in addition to the mounting brackets illustrated below, the mounting kit includes two crossrail supports that the unit slides onto.

Figure 3 Mounting Bracket for 4-post Racks

The SCE 1000 mounts to the two front rack posts with brackets that attach to the front of the SCE 1000. The inside width between the two posts or mounting strips (left and right) must be at least 17.3 inches (44 cm).


Note Remember to leave a two-inch (5 cm) clearance on both sides of the SCE 1000 and at the rear for adequate airflow for the inlet and exhaust vents.


Attach the Brackets to the SCE 1000

Before installing the SCE 1000 in the rack, you must first install an appropriate rack-mount bracket on each side of the front of the SCE 1000, as illustrated in the following figures.

Figure 4 Attaching the Mounting Brackets (4-post)

Figure 5 Attaching the Mounting Brackets (2-post)

To install the rack-mount brackets on the SCE 1000 chassis, complete the following steps:

Before installing the SCE 1000 in the rack, you must first install a rack-mount bracket on each side of the front of the SCE 1000.


Step 1 Align the rack-mount bracket to the side of the SCE 1000. Choose the proper bracket for your installation (2-post rack or 4-post rack) as illustrated in Rack-Mount the SCE 1000

Step 2 Insert and tighten three screws.

Step 3 Repeat steps 1 and 2 on the other side of the SCE 1000.

If mounting the SCE 1000 in a rack with only two posts, skip to Mount the System to the Rack.

If mounting the SCE 1000 in a rack with four posts, proceed to the next step, Installing the Crossrail Supports (Four-post rack only)).


Installing the Crossrail Supports (Four-post rack only)

This section provides information for assembling the crossrail supports and attaching them to the rack.

When mounting in a rack with four posts (front and back) the two crossrail supports are mounted one on each side of the rack. The SCE 1000 then slides into these crossrails, which support the weight of the unit.

Assemble the Crossrail Supports

Attach the Crossrail Supports to the Rack

Assemble the Crossrail Supports


Step 1 Assemble the two crossrail supports. Use three screws for each crossrail assembly.

Figure 6 Assembling the Slider Brackets

Step 2 Make sure that they are oriented so that both crossrails will support the SCE 1000 when they are attached to the rack.


Attach the Crossrail Supports to the Rack


Step 1 Align the crossrail supports with the side of the rack, parallel to the floor.

Figure 7 Attaching the Crossrails to the Rack

Step 2 Insert and tighten two screws to the front posts or mounting strips of the rack

Step 3 Insert and tighten two screws to the Back posts of the rack.

Step 4 Repeat steps 2 and 3 on the other side of the rack, keeping the brackets flush against the posts and parallel to the supporting bracket on first side of the rack.


Mount the System to the Rack

When the appropriate mounting brackets are securely installed, the SCE 1000 can be installed into the rack.

Summary Steps

1. Make sure that the rack brakes are locked or that the rack is otherwise stabilized.

2. Position the SCE 1000 so that the front end is closest to you, and lift it carefully to place it into the rack. To prevent injury, avoid sudden twists or moves.

3. Slide the SCE 1000 into the rack, pushing it back until the brackets (installed at the front of the SCE 1000) meet the mounting strips or posts on both sides of the rack.

4. While keeping the brackets flush against the posts or mounting strips, align the holes in the brackets with the holes on the rack or mounting strip.

5. For each bracket, insert and tighten two appropriate screws to the rack.

Detailed Steps


Step 1 Make sure that the rack brakes are locked or that the rack is otherwise stabilized.

Note that there is no default for this parameter.

Enter RDR-formatter destination's TCP port number:

Example:

Following is a sample RDR-formatter configuration dialog, assigning the IP address and TCP port number.

Would you like to enter the RDR-formatter configuration menu? [no]: y 
Enter RDR-formatter destination's IP address: 10.1.1.230 
Enter RDR-formatter destination's TCP port number: 33000

Step 7: Configuring Access Control Lists (ACLs)

Order of Entries

Configuring ACLs

The SCE 1000 can be configured with Access Control Lists (ACLs), which are used to permit or deny incoming connections on any of the management interfaces.


Note ACL #0 is a pre-defined list that permits access to all IP addresses.


Configuration of access control lists is done in two stages:

1. Create the access control lists.

You may create 99 ACLs with a maximum of 20 entries per list. Each entry consists of an IP address, and an indication of whether access is permitted or denied to this IP address.

2. Assign the ACLs to the appropriate management interface. (See  )

The dialog permits you to skip the creation/editing of the ACLs and go directly to assigning ACLs to the management interfaces.

Entry Formats

Each ACL may permit/deny access to any IP address, one or more ranges of IP addresses, or one or more individual IP address. Three entry formats are available to support these options:

Any IP address — Type the word "any". Any IP address will be permitted or denied access.

Range of IP addresses — Type the beginning IP address in the desired range, then enter the wildcard bits that define the range.

This wildcard functions like a reverse mask, in that all "1" bits in the wildcard indicate the corresponding bit in the IP address should be ignored. All other bits must match the corresponding bit in the specified IP address. Refer to the table below for examples.

Each range of IP addresses can be configured to be permitted or denied access.

Individual IP address— Type the desired IP address, then enter the wildcard bits 0.0.0.0.

Each individual IP address can be configured to be permitted or denied access.

Table 2 IP address/Wildcard Bits 

Initial IP address
Wildcard bits
Range

10.1.1.0

0.0.0.255

10.1.1.0-10.1.1.255

10.1.1.0

0.0.0.63

10.1.1.0-10.1.1.63

10.1.1.0

0.0.0.0

10.1.1.0 (individual entry)


Order of Entries

The order of the entries in the list is important. The entries in the list are tested sequentially, and the action is determined by the first entry that matches the connecting IP address. Therefore, when the entry "any" appears in an Access Control List, all succeeding entries are irrelevant.

Consider two hypothetical ACLs containing the same entries in a different order.

The following list would permit access to all IP addresses, including 10.1.1.0:

permit any

deny 10.1.1.0

Note that the above list could not actually be created using the setup utility, since after the "any" entry, no other entries could be added to the list.

The following list will deny access to IP address 10.1.1.0, but permit access to all others:

deny 10.1.1.0

permit any

If no entry in the assigned Access Control List matches the connection, or if the Access Control List is empty, the default action is deny.

To create the access control lists, complete the following steps:

Summary Steps

1. Enter the Access Control Lists configuration menu.

2. You have the option of creating or modifying Access Control Lists, or skipping this section and proceeding directly to assign the existing ACLs to the desired management interfaces.

3. Type the number of the Access Control List to be configured (1 through 99) and press Enter.

4. Begin adding entries to the selected list.

5. Type the IP address to be added to this list, and press Enter.

6. If you entered a specific IP address, enter the wildcard bits to define a range of IP addresses and press Enter. (See Entry Formats.)

7. The maximum number of entries in an ACL is 20.

8. When all entries are added to one list, you are asked whether you would like to create another ACL. You may define up to 99 ACLs.

9. Restrict IP access to the SCE 1000 by assigning the appropriate ACL.

10. Restrict Telnet access to the SCE 1000 by assigning the appropriate ACL.

If the "any" option was used, no other IP addresses may be added to the list.

To add more entries, type y and press Enter.

Would you like to add another entry to this list? [no]:y
 
   

Enter up to 20 entries as described in step 5 and step 6.

When all entries have been added, press Enter.

Would you like to add another entry to this list? [no]:
 
   

Step 8 When all entries are added to one list, you are asked whether you would like to create another ACL. You may define up to 99 ACLs.

To create another ACL, type y and press Enter.

Would you like to configure another list? [no]: y
 
   

Enter up to 20 IP addresses in this new ACL, as described in step 5 and step 6.

When all ACLs have been created, press Enter.

Would you like to configure another list? [no]:
 
   

You are now prompted to assign the desired ACLs to restrict IP and Telnet access.

Step 9 Restrict IP access to the SCE 1000 by assigning the appropriate ACL.

Type the number of the ACL to be assigned to IP access and press Enter.

To accept the default ACL, press Enter.

Enter IP access-class [0]:
 
   

Step 10 Restrict Telnet access to the SCE 1000 by assigning the appropriate ACL.

Type the number of the ACL to be assigned to the Telnet interface and press Enter.

To accept the default ACL, press Enter.

Enter Telnet access-class [0]: 2

Examples

Example 1:

This example illustrates a common access control scenario. Let us assume the following:

We want to permit every station to access the SCE platform on the management port (for example ping, SNMP polling etc.).

We want to restrict Telnet access to only a few permitted stations.

We therefore need to create two access control lists:

For general IP access — permit access to all IP addresses.

For Telnet — permit access to the specified IP address, and deny to all others.

ACL #1 = permit any IP address. Assign to IP access.

ACL #2 = permit access to 10.1.1.0, 10.10.10.1, deny to all others. Assign to Telnet access.

Would you like to enter the Access lists configuration menu? [no]: y 
Would you like to create new Access lists or modify existing lists? [no]: y 
Enter ACL number: 1 
Does this entry permit access? [yes]: 
Enter IP address or the word `any' to denote any IP address: any 
This entry matches every IP address, no use in adding more entries to this list. 
Would you like to configure another list? [no]: y 
Enter ACL number: 2 
Does this entry permit access? [yes]: 
Enter IP address or the word `any' to denote any IP address: 10.1.1.0 
Enter wildcard bits: 0.0.0.0 
Would you like to add another entry to this list? [no]:y 
Does this entry permit access? [yes]: 
Enter IP address or the word `any' to denote any IP address: 10.10.10.1 
Enter wildcard bits: 0.0.0.0 
Would you like to add another entry to this list? [no]:y 
Does this entry permit access? [yes]:n 
Enter IP address or the word `any' to denote any IP address: any 
This entry matches every IP address, no use in adding more entries to this list. 
Would you like to configure another list? [no]:  
Enter IP access-class [0]: 1 
Enter Telnet access-class [0]: 2

Example 2:

This example skips the first section of the dialog (creating/modifying), and proceeds directly to assign existing ACLs.

Would you like to enter the Access lists configuration menu? [no]: y 
Would you like to create new Access lists or modify existing lists? [no]: 
Enter IP access-class [0]: 10 
Enter Telnet access-class [0]: 22

Step 9: Configuring the Topology-Dependent Parameters

About the Topology-Dependent Parameters

Examples

About the Topology-Dependent Parameters

The topology configuration menu is a series of guided questions relating to the deployment of the SCE 1000 in the network and its mode of operation. Values for the parameters are configured based on the user answers.

The correct value for each parameter must be ascertained before configuring the system to make sure that the system will function in the desired manner.

There are three topology-related parameters:

Connection mode—Can be either Inline or Receive-only, depending on the physical installation of the SCE 1000.

Bypass state when the SCE 1000 is not operational (on-failure)—This parameter determines whether the system cuts the traffic or bypasses it when the SCE 1000 has failed.

Status after reboot caused by fatal error or abnormal shutdown—This parameter determines whether the SCE 1000 returns to normal operational state after a failure.

The procedure described below is a hypothetical presentation of all the questions in the topology configuration. In actual practice, it is impossible for all questions to be presented in any one configuration, as this part of the dialog is not linear like the other sections, but branches depending on the parameter values entered.

Study the examples that follow to understand the procedure for various topologies.


Step 1 Enter the topology configuration menu.

Would you like to enter the Topology configuration menu? [no]: y
 
   

Enter your password if prompted.

Type y and press Enter.

The topology configuration dialog begins.

Step 2 Specify the connection mode.

To define inline connection mode, press Enter.

To define receive-only connection mode, type 2 and press Enter.

Enter Connection mode: 
1- inline 
2- receive-only 
Enter your choice [1]:
 
   

Step 3 Specify the On-failure link behavior.

To specify Bypass, press Enter.

To specify Cutoff, type 2 and press Enter.

Enter On-failure behavior: 
1- bypass 
2- cutoff 
Enter your choice [1]:
 
   

Step 4 Specify the admin status of the SCE 1000 after abnormal boot.

To specify Not-Operational status after abnormal boot, press Enter.

To specify Operational status after abnormal boot, type 1 and press Enter.

Enter admin status of the SCe after abnormal boot: 
1- Operational 
2- Not-Operational 
Enter your choice [1]:

Examples

The following examples present the procedure for configuring the topology-related parameters for various topologies. Refer the Setup Command Parameters for a summary of appropriate values for the parameters for each topology.

Example 1:

Example 2:

Example 3:

Example 1:

Following is a sample topology configuration for a topology using an external switch.

All other parameter values are automatically assigned by the system as follows:

Link bypass mode on-failure — Bypass

Admin status of the SCE after abnormal boot — Operational

Would you like to enter the Topology configuration menu? [no]: y 
Enter Connection mode: 
1- inline 
2- receive-only 
Enter your choice [1]: 2

Example 2:

Following is a sample topology configuration for a non-redundant bump-in-the-wire (inline) topology. All values are the system default values, so it is not necessary to type in the response. Simply press enter at each line.

Connection mode — Inline

For a non-redundant topology, link bypass on-failure should be Bypass, so that traffic continues to flow through the link.

After operation of the system resumes, and the SCE 1000 reboots, the SCE 1000 will resume operation. (Admin status after abnormal reboot is Operational.)

Would you like to enter the Topology configuration menu? [no]: y 
Enter Connection mode: 
1- inline 
2- receive-only 
Enter your choice [1]:  
Enter On-failure behavior: 
1- Bypass 
2- Cutoff 
Enter your choice [1]: 
Enter admin status of the SCe after abnormal boot: 
1- Operational 
2- Not-Operational 
Enter your choice [1]:  
Data collection for the system configuration is completed.

Example 3:

Following is a sample topology configuration for a redundant inline topology.

Connection mode — Inline

For a redundant topology, link bypass on-failure should be Cutoff, so that operation switches to the backup link.

After operation of the system resumes, and the SCE 1000 reboots, the SCE 1000 will resume operation. (Admin status after abnormal reboot is Operational.)

Would you like to enter the Topology configuration menu? [no]: y 
Enter Connection mode: 
1- inline 
2- receive-only 
Enter your choice [1]: 2 
Enter On-failure behavior: 
1- Bypass 
2- Cutoff 
Enter your choice [1]:2 
Enter admin status of the SCE after abnormal boot: 
1- Operational 
2- Not-Operational 
Enter your choice [1]:  
Data collection for the system configuration is completed.

Step 10: Completing and Saving the Configuration

When you have completed the entire configuration, the system checks for errors. If errors are found, a warning message appears. When the configuration is error-free, you may apply and save it.

To complete and save the configuration, complete the following steps:

Summary Steps

1. Review the new configuration.

2. View errors (if any).

3. Apply and save the configuration.

4. Confirm saving and applying the configuration.

5. Save the configuration to a remote location.

6. This completes the procedures for initial configuration of the SCE 1000 platform.

Connect the Management Interface

Figure 15 Cabling the Management Port


Note By default, the management port is configured to auto-negotiation enabled.


The SCE 1000 has two management ports, labeled Mng1 and Mng 2. Use the Mng 1 port.


Step 1 Plug the Ethernet cable provided (with attached RJ-45 connector) into the Mng 1 port on the front panel of the SCE 1000.

Step 2 Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable into your management network.

The Link LED on the SCE 1000 management port should light up.

Step 3 Test connectivity. From the host that you intend to use for remote management, ping to the SCE 1000 by typing ping and the SCE 1000 IP address, and pressing Enter (see the example, below).

This verifies that an active connection exists between the specified station and the management port.


Example:

The following example displays a typical ping response where the target IP address is 10.1.1.201.

C:\>ping 10.1.1.201

5 Cable the Line Ports

This section provides instructions for cabling the Gigabit Ethernet ports and for configuring Gigabit Ethernet (GBE) interface parameters.


Note When installing an External Optical Bypass module, the SCE 1000 line ports are connected to the module. See "External Optical Bypass Module" in the Cisco SCE 1000 2xGBE Installation and Configuration Guide for complete instructions.

Information About Cabling

Single Link: Inline Topology

Single Link: Receive-only Topology

Single Link: Inline Topology

In the inline or bump-in-the-wire topology, illustrated in the diagram bellow, the SCE 1000 resides physically on the data link between the subscriber side, usually either a BRAS (in DSL access), a PDSN (in wireless access), a CMTS (in the Cable access), or a switch or router aggregator (in other topologies), and the network side, usually a router or layer 3 switch network element. This is the inline topology, providing both traffic monitoring and control capabilities.

In this topology, all the traffic of the SCE 1000 is deployed as a transparent layer2 overlay on the customer's existing network.

Figure 16 Bump-in-the-Wire Installation

Single Link: Receive-only Topology

In this topology, an external optical splitter resides physically on the GBE link between the subscriber side and the network side. The external splitter is connected to the SCE 1000 via Rx links only.

In this topology, the traffic passes through the external splitter, which splits traffic to the SCE 1000. The SCE 1000, therefore, is in receive-only topology, having only traffic monitoring capabilities.


Note Receive-only topologies can also be implemented using a switch. Such a switch must support SPAN functionality that includes separation between ingress and egress traffic and multiple SPAN-ports destinations.

Configure GigabitEthernet Auto-Negotiation

Connect the GBE Line Interface Ports

Configure GigabitEthernet Auto-Negotiation

By default, the SCE 1000 GBE line interface ports are configured with auto-negotiation disabled.


Note If you change any parameters, you must save the new configuration settings. Type copy running-config startup-config, and press Enter.



Step 1 At the SCE 1000# prompt, type configure and press Enter.

Enters Global Configuration Mode.

Step 2 At the SCE 1000(config)# prompt, type interface GigabitEthernet 0/ portnumber, and press Enter.

Enters the GigabitEthernet Interface configuration mode for the specified GBE port.

Portnumber is the number of the selected port (1 or 2).

Step 3 At the SCE 1000(config if)# prompt, type auto-negotiate and press Enter.

Enables auto-negotiation for the GBE interface.

Step 4 At the SCE 1000(config if)# prompt, type exit and press Enter.

Returns to Global Configuration Mode, from which you can enter the GigabitEthernet Interface configuration mode for the remaining GBE port.

Repeat this procedure to configure auto-negotiation for the other GBE port interface.


Connect the GBE Line Interface Ports

Refer to Information About Cabling to find the appropriate cabling diagram for the topology of your system.

Step 2 Verify that the link LED is green.

If the link LED does not light, try removing the network cable plug and reinserting it firmly into the module socket.


6 Completing the Installation

This section discusses how to verify link connectivity and how to install a Service Control application.

Examining the LEDs

Final Tests

Viewing Configuration

Saving the Configuration Settings

Examining the LEDs

The GBE Link LED must be green to verify that an active connection exists.

The GBE Rx and Tx LEDs (if flashing green) indicate that traffic is being received or transmitted by the SCE 1000 platform, respectively.

Note that in an inline topology, the Rx and Tx LEDs indicate that packets are being received/transmitted by the SCE 1000 platform.

In optical splitter topologies, the Rx LEDs are the sole indicators. The Tx LEDs do not "blink", since the Tx is not connected to the port in this topology.

Final Tests

The procedures for performing the final tests to verify that the SCE 1000 is functioning properly are explained in the following sections.

Verifying Operational Status

Viewing the User Log Counters

Verifying Operational Status

After all the ports are connected, verify that the SCE 1000 is not in a Warning state.

To verify that the SCE 1000 is not in a warning state, complete the following steps:


Step 1 On the SCE 1000 Front panel, examine that the Status LED is flashing green.



Step 1 To display the operation status of the system, at the SCE 1000# prompt, type show system operation-status and press Enter.

A message displaying the operation status of the system appears. If the system is operating in order, the following message appears:

System Operation status is Operational.

Example:

The following example displays a sample output where the LEDs appear red/orange:

SCE 1000number show system operation-status System Operation status is Operational

Viewing the User Log Counters

View the user log for errors that occurred during the installation process.

To display the user log device counters, complete the following steps:


Step 1 At the SCE 1000# prompt, type show logger device User-File-Log counters and press Enter.


Example:

The following example shows the current User-File-Log device counters.

SCE 1000number show logger device user-file-log counters Logger device User-File-Log counters: 
Total info messages: 1 
Total warning messages: 0 
Total error messages: 0 
Total fatal messages: 0
 
   

If there are "Total error messages" or "Total fatal messages", use the show logger device User-File-Log command to display details about the errors.

Viewing Configuration

When you enter configuration commands, it immediately effects the SCE platform operation and configuration. This configuration, referred to as the running-config, is saved in the SCE platform volatile memory and is effective while the SCE platform is up. After reboot, the SCE platform loads the startup-config, which includes the non-default configuration as saved by the user, into the running-config.

The SCE platform provides commands for:

Viewing the running configuration

Viewing the startup configuration

After configuring the SCE platform, you may query for the running configuration using the command show running-config. This command displays the non-default running configuration. To view all SCE platform running configuration, whether it is the default or not, you may use the option all-data in the show running-config command.

To view the running configuration, use the following command:


Step 1 At the SCE 1000# prompt, type show running-config.

The system shows the running configuration.

SCE 1000number show running-config #This is a general configuration file (running-config). 
#Created on 15:50:56 CET MON December 11 2005 
#cli-type 1 
#version 1

interface FastEthernet 0/1 
interface FastEthernet 0/2 
exit 
line vty 0 4 
no timeout 
exit 
SCE 1000number     

Saving the Configuration Settings

When you make changes to the current running configuration and you want those changes to continue to be valid when the system restarts, you must save the changes before leaving the management session, that is, you must save the running configuration to the startup configuration file.

The SCE platform provides multiple interfaces for the purpose of configuration and management. All interfaces supply an API to the same database of the SCE platform and any configuration made through one interface is reflected through all interfaces. Furthermore, when saving the running configuration to the startup configuration from any management interface, all configuration settings are saved regardless of the management interface used to set the configuration.

To save configuration changes, complete the following steps:


Step 1 At the SCE 1000# prompt, type show running-config to view the running configuration.

The running configuration is displayed.

Step 2 Check the displayed configuration to make sure that it is set the way you want. If not, make the changes you want before saving.

Step 3 Type copy running-config startup-config.

The system saves all running configuration information to the configuration file, which is used when the system reboots.

The configuration file holds all information that is different from the system default in a file called config.txt located in the directory: tffs0:system.


Examples

Example 1:

The following example shows the running configuration file.

SCE 1000number show running-config #This is a general configuration file (running-config). 
#Created on 15:50:56 CET MON February 11 2006 
#cli-type 1 
#version 1 
clock timezone CET 1 
snmp-server community "public" ro 
snmp-server host 10.1.1.253 traps version 1 "public" 
interface LineCard 0 
connection-mode active 
no silent 
no shutdown 
flow-aging default-timeout UDP 60 
interface FastEthernet 0/0 
ip address 10.1.5.109 255.255.0.0 
interface FastEthernet 0/1 
interface FastEthernet 0/2 
exit 
line vty 0 4 
no timeout 
exit 
SCE 1000# 
SCE 1000#copy running-config startup-config 
Writing general configuration file to temporary location... 
Backing-up general configuration file... 
Copy temporary file to final location... 
SCE 1000number
 
   

For backup purposes, the old startup-config file is saved under the directory: tffs0:system/prevconf.

To remove a configuration command from the running-config, use the no form of the command.

Example 2:

The following example illustrates how to remove all DNS settings from the running configuration.

SCE 1000(config)#no ip name-server 
SCE 1000(config)#

7 Installing a Service Control Application

Advanced Configuration of the SCE Platform

Loading and Activating a Service Control Application

Advanced Configuration of the SCE Platform

After you have installed your SCE 1000 platform hardware, checked all external connections, turned on the system power, allowed the system to boot up, and performed the initial system configuration, you are ready to install the Service Control application. However, before you install the application, you might need to perform more complex configurations, which are beyond the scope of this publication.

For further information on system and interface configuration, refer to the following documents:

Cisco SCE 2000 and SCE 1000 Software Configuration Guide

Cisco SCE 2000 and SCE 1000 CLI Command Reference

Loading and Activating a Service Control Application

The SCE 1000 platform provides the basic functions of Service Control analysis and enforcement. A Service Control solution requires that a Service Control application be loaded into the platform, to take advantage of the unique SCE platform capabilities.

Loading and activating an application includes the following stages:

Downloading the application provided as an SLI file to the SCE 1000 disk.

Activating the application.

Configuring the application.

The detailed procedure of how to perform these operations is not specified and described in this manual. For further details, refer to the following documentation:

Identifying Startup Problems

Startup problems are commonly due to the source power or to a poor cable connection.

This section contains a detailed description of the normal startup sequence and describes the steps to take if the system does not perform that sequence as expected. LEDs indicate all system states in the startup sequence. By checking the state of the LEDs, you can determine when and where the system failed in the startup sequence. Use the following descriptions to isolate the problem to a subsystem, and then proceed to the appropriate sections to try to resolve the problem.

When you start up the system by turning on the power supply switch, the following should occur:

You should immediately hear the fans operating.

When all LEDs come on to indicate that the system has booted successfully, the initial system banner should be displayed on the console screen. If it is not displayed, see Connect the Local Console to verify that the terminal is set correctly and that it is properly connected to the console port.

If the banner is displayed, but the Status LED is flashing orange, indicating a warning state, check the user log:

At the prompt, type: more user log

If any of the following warning messages appear, turn the SCE 1000 platform off and call technical support.

"voltage problem"

"fans problem"

"abnormal raise in interior temperature"

If the following warning message appears, delete unneeded files from the disk.

"insufficient disk space:"
