Configuring the PA-2H


To continue your PA-2H port adapter installation, you must configure the HSSI interfaces. The instructions that follow apply to all supported platforms. Minor differences between the platforms—with Cisco IOS software commands—are noted.

This chapter contains the following sections:

Using the EXEC Command Interpreter

Configuring the Interfaces

Checking the Configuration

Using the EXEC Command Interpreter

You modify the configuration of your router through the software command interpreter called the EXEC (also called enable mode). You must enter the privileged level of the EXEC command interpreter with the enable command before you can use the configure command to configure a new interface or change the existing configuration of an interface. The system prompts you for a password if one has been set.

The system prompt for the privileged level ends with a pound sign (#) instead of an angle bracket (>). At the console terminal, use the following procedure to enter the privileged level:


Step 1 At the user-level EXEC prompt, enter the enable command. The EXEC prompts you for a privileged-level password as follows:

Router> enable 

Password: 

Step 2 Enter the password (the password is case sensitive). For security purposes, the password is not displayed.

When you enter the correct password, the system displays the privileged-level system prompt (#):

Router#


To configure the new interfaces, proceed to the "Configuring the Interfaces" section.

Configuring the Interfaces

After you verify that the new PA-2H is installed correctly (the enabled LED goes on), use the privileged-level configure command to configure the new interfaces. Have the following information available:

Protocols you plan to route on each new interface

IP addresses, if you plan to configure the interfaces for IP routing

Bridging protocols you plan to use

If you installed a new PA-2H or if you want to change the configuration of an existing interface, you must enter configuration mode to configure the new interfaces. If you replaced a PA-2H that was previously configured, the system recognizes the new interfaces and brings each of them up in their existing configuration.

For a summary of the configuration options available and instructions for configuring interfaces on a PA-2H, refer to the appropriate configuration publications listed in the "Related Documentation" section on page viii.

You execute configuration commands from the privileged level of the EXEC command interpreter, which usually requires password access. Contact your system administrator, if necessary, to obtain password access. (See the "Using the EXEC Command Interpreter" section for an explanation of the privileged level of the EXEC.)

This section contains the following subsections:

Configuring Cyclic Redundancy Checks

Shutting Down an Interface

Before you remove an interface that you will not replace, or replace port adapters, use the shutdown command to shut down (disable) the interfaces to prevent anomalies when you reinstall the new or reconfigured interface processor. When you shut down an interface, it is designated administratively down in the show command displays.

Follow these steps to shut down an interface:


Step 1 Enter the privileged level of the EXEC command interpreter (also called enable mode). (See the "Using the EXEC Command Interpreter" section for instructions.)

Step 2 At the privileged-level prompt, enter configuration mode and specify that the console terminal is the source of the configuration subcommands, as follows:

Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z
Router(config)#

Step 3 Shut down interfaces by entering the interface hssi subcommand (followed by the interface address of the interface), and then enter the shutdown command. Table 4-1 shows the command syntax.

When you have finished, press Ctrl-Z-hold down the Control key while you press Z-or enter end or exit to exit configuration mode and return to the EXEC command interpreter.

b. Repeat Step 4 to write the new configuration to memory.
Use the copy running-config startup-config

c. Repeat Step 5 to verify that the interfaces are in the correct state. Use the show interfaces command followed by the interface type and interface address of the interface.

For complete descriptions of software configuration commands, refer to the publications listed in the "Related Documentation" section on page viii.


Performing a Basic Configuration

Following are instructions for a basic configuration: enabling an interface and specifying IP routing. You might also need to enter other configuration subcommands, depending on the requirements for your system configuration and the protocols you plan to route on the interface. For complete descriptions of configuration subcommands and the configuration options available for hssi interfaces, refer to the appropriate software documentation.

In the following procedure, press the Return key after each step unless otherwise noted. At any time you can exit the privileged level and return to the user level by entering disable at the prompt as follows:

Router# disable

Router>

Step 1 Enter configuration mode and specify that the console terminal is the source of the configuration subcommands, as follows:

Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)#

Step 2 Specify the interface to configure by entering the interface hssi subcommand, followed by the interface address of the interface you plan to configure. Table 4-3 provides examples.

Step 3 Assign an IP address and subnet mask to the interface (if IP routing is enabled on the system) by using the ip address subcommand, as in the following example:

Router(config-if)# ip address 10.0.0.0 10.255.255.255 

Step 4 Add any additional configuration subcommands required to enable routing protocols and set the interface characteristics.

Step 5 Reenable the interfaces using the no shutdown command. (See the "Shutting Down an Interface" section.)

Step 6 Configure all additional port adapter interfaces as required.

Step 7 After including all of the configuration subcommands to complete your configuration, press Ctrl-Z-hold down the Control key while you press Z-or enter end or exit to exit configuration mode and return to the EXEC command interpreter prompt.

Step 8 Write the new configuration to NVRAM as follows:

Router# copy running-config startup-config
[OK]
Router#


This completes the procedure for creating a basic configuration.

Configuring Cyclic Redundancy Checks

Table 4-4 summarizes cyclic redundancy check (CRC) commands. For more information, see the remainder of this section.

Table 4-4 CRC Commands

Purpose
Command
Example
Further Information

Enable 32-bit CRC.

crc size

The example enables 32-bit CRC on a serial interface:

Router(config)# interface hssi 3/0
Router(config-if)# crc 32

"Configuring Cyclic Redundancy Checks"

Return to default 16-bit CRC.

no crc size

The example disables 32-bit CRC on a serial interface and returns to the default 16-bit CRC:

Router(config)# interface hssi 3/0
Router(config-if)# no crc 32

"Configuring Cyclic Redundancy Checks"


CRC is an error-checking technique that uses a calculated numeric value to detect errors in transmitted data. All interfaces use a 16-bit CRC (CRC-CITT) by default but also support a 32-bit CRC. The sender of a data frame calculates the frame check sequence (FCS). Before it sends the frame, the sender appends the FCS value to the message. The receiver recalculates the FCS and compares its calculation to the FCS from the sender. If there is a difference between the two calculation, the receiver assumes that a transmission error occurred and sends a request to the sender to resend the frame.

Enable 32-bit CRC using the crc32 command. Before you can enable 32-bit CRC, you must use the interface hssi command (followed by the interface address of the interface) to select the interface on which you want to enable 32-bit CRC. This command functions in the same way on all supported platforms.

In the example that follows, 32-bit CRC is specified:

Router(config-if)# crc 32

The preceding command example applies to all systems in which the PA-2H is supported. Use the no crc 32 command to disable CRC-32 and return the interface to the default CRC-16 (CRC-CITT) setting.

When you have finished, press Ctrl-Z-hold down the Control key while you press Z-or enter end or exit to exit configuration mode and return to the EXEC command interpreter prompt. Then write the new configuration to NVRAM using the copy running-config startup-config command.

For complete descriptions, refer to the Configuration Fundamentals Configuration Guide publication. For more information, see the "Obtaining Documentation" section on page x and the "Obtaining Technical Assistance" section on page xii.


Note When enabling a 32-bit CRC on an interface, ensure that the remote device is also configured for a 32-bit CRC. Both the sender and the receiver must use the same CRC setting.


Checking the Configuration

After configuring the new interface, use the show commands to display the status of the new interface or all interfaces, and use the ping and loopback commands to check connectivity. This section includes the following subsections:

Using show Commands to Verify the New Interface Status

Using the ping Command to Verify Network Connectivity

Using show Commands to Verify the New Interface Status

Table 4-5 demonstrates how you can use the show commands to verify that new interfaces are configured and operating correctly and that the PA-2H appears in them correctly. Sample displays of the output of selected show commands appear in the sections that follow. For complete command descriptions and examples, refer to the publications listed in the "Related Documentation" section on page viii.

Catalyst RSM/VIP2 in Catalyst 5000 Family Switches


Caution If you are using the PA-2H in the Catalyst 5000, 5500, 5505, or 5509 switch, you must install the port adapter on the Catalyst RSM/VIP2-15 or -40 Revision 2 (Part Number 73-3468-XX, where XX is the version number). D o not use the PA-2H in the Catalyst 5000, 5505, or 5509 switch if you are installing it on a Catalyst RSM/VIP2-15 or -40 that is not Revision 2. If you fail to comply with this restriction, your system will shut down because of an overload of the power supply.


Caution You can only have two PA-2H port adapters per chassis when they are installed on a Catalyst RSM/VIP2-15 or -40 module Revision 1 and used in the Catalyst 5500 switch.

Following is an example of the show version command from a Catalyst 5000 family switch with the PA-2H:

Using the ping Command to Verify Network Connectivity

Using the ping command, you can verify that an interface port is functioning properly. This section provides a brief description of this command. Refer to the publications listed in the "Related Documentation" section on page viii for detailed command descriptions and examples.

The ping command sends echo request packets out to a remote device at an IP address that you specify. After sending an echo request, the system waits a specified time for the remote device to reply. Each echo reply is displayed as an exclamation point (!) on the console terminal; each request that is not returned before the specified timeout is displayed as a period (.). A series of exclamation points (!!!!!) indicates a good connection; a series of periods (.....) or the messages [timed out] or [failed] indicate a bad connection.

Following is an example of a successful ping command to a remote server with the IP address 10.0.0.10:

Router# ping 10.0.0.10 <Return>
Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echoes to 10.0.0.10, timeout is 2 seconds:
!!!!!
Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/15/64 ms
Router#

If the connection fails, verify that you have the correct IP address for the destination and that the device is active (powered on), and repeat the ping command.

This completes the PA-2H interface configuration.
