Configuring the Multichannel DS1/PRI Interfaces


To continue your Cisco multichannel DS1/PRI port adapter installation, you must configure the DS1/PRI interfaces. The instructions that follow apply to all supported platforms. Minor differences among 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 to change the existing configuration of an interface. The system prompts you for a password if one is 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.

Step 3 When you enter the correct password, the system displays the privileged-level system prompt (#):

Router#


Proceed to the following section to configure the new interfaces.

Configuring the Interfaces

After you verify that the new multichannel DS1/PRI port adapter 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 and encapsulations you plan to use on the new interfaces.

Protocol-specific information, such as IP addresses, if you plan to configure the interfaces for IP routing.

A decision on whether the new interface will use bridging.

ISDN switch type, for the configuring of ISDN PRI. (Table 4-1 lists ISDN service provider switch types.)


Note The Catalyst 6000 family FlexWAN module does not support ISDN.


T1 information, for example, clock source, line code, and framing type.

Channel group and PRI group information and time slot mapping.

If you installed a new multichannel DS1/PRI 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 multichannel DS1/PRI that was previously configured, the system recognizes the new interfaces and brings each of them up in their existing configurations.

For a summary of the configuration options available and instructions for configuring interfaces on a multichannel DS1/PRI, 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:

Performing a Basic Interface Configuration

Following are instructions for a basic configuration, which include 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 serial 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 first interface to configure by entering the interface serial subcommand, followed by the interface address of the interface you plan to configure.

Table 4-2 provides examples of the interface serial subcommand for the supported platforms.

Router(config)# controller t1 1/1/0:0
Router(config-controller)#

Step 3 In controller configuration mode, enter the framing [sf | esf] configuration subcommand to set the framing format, as in the following example:

Router(config-controller)# framing esf

Use the no form of this command to restore the default, SF.

Step 4 Enter the clock source [internal | line] configuration subcommand to set the clock source, as in the following example:

Router(config-controller)# clock source internal

Use the no form of this command to restore the default, line.

Step 5 Enter the channel-group number timeslots value [speed {56 | 64}] configuration subcommand to set the channel group, as in the following example:

Router(config-controller)# channel-group 0 timeslots 1-24 speed 56


Note When the multichannel DS1/PRI port adapter is being used with AMI encoding, it must be configured as 64K or invert data mode.



Note The channel-group number can be from 0 to 23 and the time slot value can be from 1 to 24. The maximum number of channel groups per each 8-port multichannel DS1/PRI port adapter is 128.


Step 6 Enter the pri-group timeslots value configuration subcommand to set the PRI group, as in the following example:

Router(config-controller)# pri-group timeslots 1-24


Note The channel-group number can be from 0 to 23 and the time slot value can be from 1 to 24.


Step 7 Enter the description controller configuration subcommand (containing a line of up to 80 characters describing this controller) to set the description, as in the following example:

Router(config-controller)# description Arizona 3 Router; location: building 2

Step 8 Enter the cablelength {long [gain26 | gain36] [0db | -7.5db  | -15db | -22.5db]} configuration subcommand to set the cable length, as in the following example:

Router(config-controller)# cablelength long gain26 -15db

Enter the no form of this command to restore the default, gain36, 0dB.

For the PA-MC-8DSX1 port adapter, set the cable length by entering the cablelength {short [133 |
266 | 399 | 533 | 655]}
command, as in the following example:

Router(config-controller)# cablelength short 266

Use the no form of this command to return to the default, 133. The range of values for the short-haul cable lengths is from 0 to 655 feet.

Step 9 Enter the fdl {att | ansi} configuration subcommand to set the Facilities Data Link (FDL), as in the following example:

Router(config-controller)# fdl ansi

Use the no form of this command to disable FDL.


Note The fdl configuration subcommand is not allowed in SF mode.


Step 10 Enter the shutdown configuration subcommand to shut down the controller, as in the following example:

Router(config-controller)# shutdown


To exit controller configuration mode and return to global configuration mode, enter the exit command. To exit configuration mode and return to privileged EXEC mode, use the end command or press Ctrl-Z.

Configuring the Interface

The following steps make up a basic interface configuration for the multichannel DS1/PRI port adapter:


Step 1 At the privileged-level prompt, enter configuration mode and specify that the console terminal will be the source of the configuration subcommands:

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 serial subcommand, followed by the interface address of the interface you plan to configure. Table 4-2 provides examples.

Step 3 Set the encapsulation used by the interface by entering the encapsulation {frame-relay | hdlc | ppp | smds | x25} configuration subcommand, as in the following example:

Router(config-if)# encapsulation ppp

Step 4 In interface configuration mode, set the description by entering the description configuration subcommand (containing a line of up to 80 characters describing this interface), as in the following example:

Router(config-if)# description PPP channel 5

Step 5 Configure additional interfaces as required.

Step 6 When you have included all of the configuration subcommands to complete the configuration, press Ctrl-Z to exit configuration mode.

Step 7 Write the new configuration to NVRAM as follows:

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


To check the interface configuration using show commands, proceed to the "Checking the Configuration" section.

Configuring Cyclic Redundancy Checks

Cyclic redundancy check (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 a 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 calculations, the receiver assumes that a transmission error occurred and sends a request to the sender to re send the frame.

Table 4-4 summarizes CRC commands.

Table 4-4 CRC Commands

Purpose
Command
Example

Enable 32-bit CRC.

crc size

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

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

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 serial 3/0:0
Router(config-if)# no crc 32

Enable 32-bit CRC using the crc 32 command. Before you can enable 32-bit CRC, you must use the interface serial 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. This example applies to all systems in which the multichannel DS1/PRI port adapter is supported.

Router(config-if)# crc 32

Use the no crc 32 command to disable 32-bit CRC and return the interface to the default 16-bit CRC (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 command descriptions, refer to the Configuration Fundamentals Configuration Guide on Cisco.com.

To check the interface configuration using show commands, proceed to the "Checking the Configuration" section.

Customizing the Multichannel DS1/PRI Port Adapter

You can customize the DS1/PRI port adapter. The features you can customize have default values that will probably suit your environment and not need to be changed. However, you might need to enter configuration commands, depending on the requirements for your system configuration and the protocols you plan to route on the interface. Perform the tasks in the following sections if you need to customize the DS1/PRI port adapter:

Configuring Multichannel T1 Interfaces

Configuring Multichannel T1 ISDN PRI Interfaces

Specifying T1 Framing

Setting the Cable Length

Configuring Multichannel T1 Interfaces

Following are instructions for a basic multichannel T1 configuration (enabling a controller 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, refer to the publications listed in the "Related Documentation" section on page viii.

The channel groups must be mapped before the multichannel DS1/PRI controller can be configured. The following are controller commands used to map the channel group (the default variable is listed first):

controller t1 port-adapter-slot-number/interface-port-number (for Catalyst RSM/VIP2)

controller t1 module-slot-number/port-adapter-bay-number/interface-port-number (for Catalyst 6000 family FlexWAN module)

controller t1 port-adapter-slot-number/interface-port-number (for Cisco 7100 series routers, Cisco 7200 series routers, Cisco 7200 VXR routers, Cisco uBR7200 series routers, Cisco 7201 router, Cisco 7301 router, and Cisco 7401ASR router)

controller t1module-slot-number/interface-port-number (for Cisco 7304 PCI Port Adapter Carrier Card in Cisco 7304 router)

controller t1 interface-processor-slot-number/port-adapter-slot-number/interface-port-number (for VIP)

clock source [line | internal]

framing [sf | esf]

linecode [ami | b8zs]

invert data

loopback [diagnostic | local | remote]

shutdown

channel-group number timeslots list [speed {56 | 64}]

The argument number is the channel group 0 to 23.

The argument list is a number between 1 and 24. You can enter time slots individually and separate them by commas or enter them as a range separated by a hyphen (for example, 1-3, 8, 9-18). Time slot 0 is an illegal configuration.

Use speed specify the DS0 speed of the channel group; 64 kbps is the default.

In the following procedure, press the Return key after each configuration step:


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 Choose a T1 controller by entering the controller t1 subcommand, followed by the interface address of the interface you plan to configure. Table 4-3 provides examples of the controller t1 subcommands for the supported platforms.

Step 3 At the prompt, specify the clock source for the controller. The clock source command determines which end of the circuit provides the clocking signal.

Router(config-controller)# clock source line


Note You can set the clock source to use internal clocking for testing purposes. One end of a T1 circuit must provide the clock source.


Step 4 Specify the framing type:

Router(config-controller)# framing esf

Step 5 Specify the linecode format:

Router(config-controller)# linecode b8zs
Router(config-controller)#

Step 6 Enter the channel-group modification command to specify the channel group and time slots to be mapped.


Note The maximum number of channel groups per each 8-port multichannel DS1/PRI port adapter is 128.


The following example shows channel group 0 and time slots 1, 3 through 5, and 7 selected for mapping on a VIP:

Router(config-controller)# channel-group 0 timeslots 1,3-5,7 
Router(config-controller)#
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial3/1/1:0, 
changed state to down 
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial3/1/1:0, 
changed state to up 
Router(config-controller)#

Step 7 Specify the interface to modify by entering the interface serial subcommand, followed by the interface address of the interface you plan to configure. Table 4-2 provides examples of the interface serial subcommand for the supported platforms.

Step 8 Assign an IP address and subnet mask to the interface with the ip address configuration subcommand as in the following example:

Router(config-int)# ip address 1.1.15.1 255.255.255.0 
Router(config-int)#

Step 9 Add any other configuration subcommands required to enable routing protocols and adjust the interface characteristics.

Step 10 Use the no shutdown command to reenable the interfaces.

Step 11 After including all of the configuration subcommands, to complete the configuration, press Ctrl-Z (hold down the Control key while you press Z) to exit configuration mode.

Step 12 Write the new configuration to memory:

Router# write memory

The system displays an OK message when the configuration is stored.

Step 13 Exit the privileged level and return to the user level by entering disable at the prompt:

Router# disable

Router>


This completes the procedure for creating a basic channelized T1 configuration. Proceed to the "Checking the Configuration" section to check the interface configuration using show commands. For additional information about configuring channelized T1 interfaces, refer to the publications Wide-Area Networking Configuration Guide and Wide-Area Networking Command Reference on Cisco.com.

Configuring Multichannel T1 ISDN PRI Interfaces


Note The Catalyst 6000 family FlexWAN module does not support ISDN.


Following are instructions for a basic multichannel T1 ISDN PRI configuration (enabling a controller 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, refer to the publications listed in the "Related Documentation" section on page viii.

The PRI group must be mapped before the multichannel DS1/PRI controller can be configured (there is only one PRI group for each controller). The following are controller commands used to map the PRI group:

isdn switch-type switch-type

controller t1 port-adapter-slot-number/interface-port-number (for Catalyst RSM/VIP2)

controller t1 port-adapter-slot-number/interface-port-number (for Cisco 7100 series routers, Cisco 7200 series routers, Cisco  7200 VXR routers, Cisco uBR7200 series routers, Cisco 7201 router, Cisco 7301 router, and Cisco 7401ASR router)

controller t1 module-slot-number/interface-port-number (for Cisco 7304 PCI Port Adapter Carrier Card in Cisco 7304 router)

controller t1 interface-processor-slot-number/port-adapter-slot-number/interface-port-number (for VIP)

clock source line

framing esf

linecode b8zs

invert data

loopback [diagnostic | local | remote]

shutdown

pri-group [timeslots list][speed {56 | 64}]

The argument list is a number between 1 and 24. (Time slots 1 to 23 represent the B channels, and time slot 24 represents the D channel. You can enter time slots individually and separate them by commas or enter them as a range separated by a hyphen (for example, 1-3, 8, 9-18). The default DS0 speed of the PRI group is 64 kbps.


Note If you do not specify the time slots, the controller is configured for 23 B channels (time slots 1 to 23) and one D channel (time slot 24).


The Catalyst RSM/VIP2 identifies the PRI group as a serial interface by port adapter slot (0 or 1), port number (0 or 1), and time slot 23. For example, the address of the multichannel DS1/PRI port adapter installed in port adapter slot 1, port 1, and time slot 23, would be recognized by the system as serial 1/1:23.

The Catalyst RSM/VIP2 does not support the PA-MC-2T1 multichannel DS1/PRI port adapter.


Note The Catalyst 6000 family FlexWAN module does not support ISDN.


Cisco 7100 series routers, Cisco 7200 series routers, Cisco 7200 VXR routers, and Cisco uBR7200 series routers identify the PRI group as a serial interface by port adapter slot number, port number (0 or 1), and time slot 23. For example, the address of the multichannel DS1/PRI port adapter installed in port adapter slot 1, port 1, and time slot 23, would be recognized by the system as serial 1/1:23.

The Cisco 7201 router, Cisco 7301 router, and Cisco 7401ASR router identify the PRI group as a serial interface by port adapter slot number, port number (0 or 1), and time slot 23. For example, the address of the multichannel DS1/PRI port adapter installed in port adapter slot 1, port 1, and time slot 23, would be recognized by the system as serial 1/1:23.

The Cisco 7304 PCI Port Adapter Carrier Card in a Cisco 7304 router identifies the PRI group as a serial interface by port adapter slot number (2 through 5), port number (0 or 1), and time slot 23. For example, the address of the multichannel DS1/PRI port adapter installed in port adapter slot 3, port 1, and time slot 23, would be recognized by the system as serial 3/1:23.

Cisco 7000 series routers and Cisco 7500 series routers identify the PRI group as a serial interface by chassis slot number, port adapter slot (0 or 1), port number (0 or 1), and time slot 23. For example, the address of the multichannel DS1/PRI port adapter installed in chassis slot 4, port adapter slot 1, port 1, and time slot 23, would be recognized by the system as serial 4/1/1:23.

In the following procedure for a basic multichannel T1 ISDN PRI configuration, press Return after each configuration step:


Step 1 At the privileged-level prompt, enter configuration mode and specify that the console terminal will be the source of the configuration subcommands:

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

Step 2 Identify the ISDN switch type. In the following example, the switch primary-5ess (a switch for the United States) is identified as the switch type:

Router(config)# isdn switch-type primary-5ess


Note The ISDN switch type that you identify is for all ISDN ports installed in the router.


Step 3 Choose a T1 controller by entering the controller t1 subcommand, followed by the interface address of the interface you plan to configure. Table 4-3 provides examples of the controller t1 subcommand for supported platforms.

Step 4 At the prompt, specify the clock source for the controller. The clock source command determines which end of the circuit provides the clocking signal.

Router(config-controller)# clock source line


Note You can set the clock source to use internal clocking for testing purposes. One end of a T1 circuit must provide the clock source.


Step 5 Specify the framing type:

Router(config-controller)# framing esf

Step 6 Specify the linecode format:

Router(config-controller)# linecode b8zs
Router(config-controller)#

Step 7 Use the pri-group modification command to specify the time slots to map. The following examples show PRI-group time slots 1, 3 through 5, and 7 (the B channels) mapped to time slot 24 (the D channel), which is recognized by the system as time slot 23.

For the Catalyst RSM/VIP2:

Router(config-controller)# pri-group timeslots 1,3-5,7  
Router(config-controller)# 
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial1/1:23, 
changed state to down 
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial1/1:23, 
changed state to up 
Router(config-controller)#

For Cisco 7100 series routers:

Router(config-controller)# pri-group timeslots 1,3-5,7  
Router(config-controller)# 
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial4/1:23, 
changed state to down 
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial4/1:23, 
changed state to up 
Router(config-controller)#

For Cisco 7200 series routers, Cisco 7200 VXR routers, and Cisco uBR7200 series routers:

Router(config-controller)# pri-group timeslots 1,3-5,7  
Router(config-controller)# 
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial3/1:23, 
changed state to down 
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial3/1:23, 
changed state to up 
Router(config-controller)#

For the Cisco 7201 router:

Router(config-controller)# pri-group timeslots 1,3-5,7  
Router(config-controller)# 
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial4/1:23, 
changed state to down 
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial4/1:23, 
changed state to up 
Router(config-controller)#

For the Cisco 7301 router:

Router(config-controller)# pri-group timeslots 1,3-5,7  
Router(config-controller)# 
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial4/1:23, 
changed state to down 
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial4/1:23, 
changed state to up 
Router(config-controller)#

For the Cisco 7304 PCI Port Adapter Carrier Card in the Cisco 7304 router:

Router(config-controller)# pri-group timeslots 1,3-5,7  
Router(config-controller)# 
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial4/1:23, 
changed state to down 
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial4/1:23, 
changed state to up 
Router(config-controller)#

For the Cisco 7401ASR router:

Router(config-controller)# pri-group timeslots 1,3-5,7  
Router(config-controller)# 
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial4/1:23, 
changed state to down 
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial4/1:23, 
changed state to up 
Router(config-controller)#

For the VIP:

Router(config-controller)# pri-group timeslots 1,3-5,7  
Router(config-controller)# 
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial3/1/1:23, 
changed state to down 
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial3/1/1:23, 
changed state to up 
Router(config-controller)#


Note In the preceding examples, the line-protocol status for time slot 24 (listed in the output as time slot 23) represents the entire PRI group.


Step 8 Specify the interface to modify by entering the interface serial subcommand, followed by the interface address of the interface you plan to configure. For multichannel T1 ISDN PRI, the PRI group is configured using time slot 24, which is recognized by the system as time slot 23 (for example, the VIP2 would be 3/1/1:23).

Step 9 If IP routing is enabled on the system, assign an IP address and subnet mask to the interface with the ip address configuration subcommand as in the following example:

Router(config-int)# ip address 1.1.15.1 255.255.255.0 
Router(config-int)#

Step 10 Add any other configuration subcommands required to enable routing protocols and adjust the interface characteristics.

Step 11 Use the no shutdown command to re enable the interfaces.

Step 12 After including all of the configuration subcommands, to complete the configuration, press Ctrl-Z (hold down the Control key while you press Z) to exit configuration mode.

Step 13 Write the new configuration to memory:

Router# write memory

The system displays an OK message when the configuration is stored.

Step 14 Exit the privileged level and return to the user level by entering disable at the prompt:

Router# disable

Router>


This completes the procedure for creating a basic multichannel T1 ISDN PRI configuration. Proceed to the "Checking the Configuration" section to check the interface configuration information using show commands. For dialer interface configuration and additional multichannel T1 ISDN PRI interface configuration information, refer to the publications Wide-Area Networking Configuration Guide and Wide-Area Networking Command Reference on Cisco.com.

Specifying T1 Framing

In controller configuration mode, specify T1 framing by entering the framing [sf | esf] configuration subcommand, as in the following example:

Router(config-controller)# framing sf

Use the no form of this command to return to the default, ESF framing.


Note If you specify SF framing, you must have 56-kbps speed or inverted data to avoid errors.


Setting the Cable Length

For the PA-MC-2T1, PA-MC-4T1, and PA-MC-8T1, in controller configuration mode, set the cable length by entering the cablelength [long {gain26 | gain 36} {0db | -7.5db | -15db | -22.5db} short {133 | 266 | 399 | 533 | 655}] command, as in the following example:

Router(config-controller)# cablelength long gain26 -15db

Use the no form of this command to return to the default, gain36, 0dB.


Note Each T1 port can operate in long-haul or short-haul mode. In long-haul mode, the user must specify the gain and the line build-out. The default values are gain26 with 0dB line build-out. In short-haul mode, the user must specify the cable length in feet. The range is from 0 to 655 feet. The actual mapping is shown in Table 4-5.


For the PA-MC-8DSX1, in controller configuration mode, set the cable length by entering the cablelength {short [133 | 266 | 399 | 533 | 655]} command, as in the following example:

Router(config-controller)# cablelength short 266

Use the no form of this command to return to the default, 133. The range of values for the short-haul cable lengths is from 0 to 655 feet.

Table 4-5 provides the cable length range values for the cablelength short command.

Using the show diag Command

Display the types of port adapters installed in your system (and specific information about each) using the show diag slot command, where slot is the port adapter slot in a Cisco 7100 series router, Cisco 7200 series router, Cisco 7200 VXR router, Cisco uBR7200 series router, Cisco 7201 router, Cisco 7301 router, or Cisco 7401ASR router, the module slot in a Cisco 7304 PCI Port Adapter Carrier Card in a Cisco 7304 router, and the interface processor slot in Cisco 7000 series router or Cisco 7500 series router with a VIP. In the FlexWAN module, the show diag command is used without the slot designation.


Note The slot argument is optional for Catalyst 5000 family switches.



Note The outputs that appear in this document may not match the output you receive when running these commands. The outputs in this document are examples only.

Using the show interfaces Command

Display status information (including the physical slot and interface address) for the interfaces you specify using the show interfaces command.

For complete descriptions of interface subcommands and the configuration options available for the individual platforms, refer to the publications listed in the "Related Documentation" section on page viii.


Note The outputs that appear in this document may not match the output you receive when running these commands. The outputs in this document are examples only.


The following sections provide platform-specific output examples using the show interfaces command:

     2 carrier transitions alarm present
  Timeslot(s) Used: 1-24, Transmitter delay is 0 flags, transmit queue length 24

Following is an example of the show interfaces serial command that shows all of the information specific to the same port on a Catalyst RSM/VIP2 (port 0 in port adapter slot 1) when the port is configured for ISDN PRI:

Router# show interfaces serial 1/0:23
Serial1/0:23 is up, line protocol is up(spoofing)
  Hardware is Multichannel T1
  MTU 1500 bytes, BW 64Kbit, DLY 20000 usec, rely 255/255, load 1/255
  Encapsulation HDLC, loopback not set, keepalive set (10 sec)
  Last input never, output never, output hang never
  Last clearing of "show interface" counters never
  Queueing strategy: fifo
  Output queue 0/40, 0 drops; input queue 0/75, 0 drops

     0 output buffer failures, 0 output buffers swapped out
     0 carrier transitions alarm present
  Timeslot(s) Used:24, Transmitter delay is 0 flags, transmit queue length 0


Note In the preceding examples, the term "spoofing" indicates that the interface is configured for ISDN PRI. Spoofing is indicated only on time slot 24 (the D channel), which is recognized by the system as time slot 23.

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 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.

Proceed to the next section, "Using loopback Commands," to finish checking network connectivity.

Using loopback Commands

If you have difficulty with the multichannel DS1/PRI port adapter configuration or installation, you can troubleshoot the multichannel DS1/PRI port adapter using the loopback command. Specify loopback for a T1 controller and T1 channel using the loopback command. There are three main loopback modes: diagnostic, local (line and payload), and remote (iboc and esf).

Specify the loopback format using the loopback [diagnostic | local | remote] command.


Note To shut down the T1 controller, use the shutdown command at the controller prompt.


Diagnostic loopback loops the outgoing transmit signal back to the receive signal and sends an alarm indication signal (AIS) to the network. The syntax of the loopback diagnostic command is as follows:

loopback [diagnostic]

Following are examples of setting the first T1 into diagnostic loopback for various supported platforms:

For the Catalyst RSM/VIP2:

Router# configure terminal

Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)# controller t1 2/1/0
Router(config-controller)# loopback diagnostic

Local loopback loops the incoming signal back to the line. The syntax of the loopback local command is as follows:

loopback [local {payload | line}]

Following are examples of setting the first T1 into local loopback for various supported platforms:

For the Catalyst RSM/VIP2:

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

For the VIP:

Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)# controller t1 2/1/0
Router(config-controller)# loopback local payload

The syntax of the loopback remote command follows:

loopback [remote {esf line | iboc | esf payload}]

Checking Bit Errors Using a BERT

To check bit errors using a bit error rate test (BERT), use the following command:

[no] t1 bert pattern {2^11 | 2^15 | 2^20 O.153 2^20 QRSS | 2^23 | 0s | 1s alt-0-1} interval minutes

where

2^15 is an exponential number that represents a pseudorandom repeating pattern that is 32,767 bits long

2^20 is a pseudorandom repeating pattern that is 1,048,575 bits long

2^23 is a pseudorandom repeating pattern that is 8,388,607 bits long

0s is a pattern of all zeroes (00000000...)

1s is a pattern of all 1s (111111...)

minutes are 1 to 14400, which designates the time the BERT will run.

To stop the BERT, use the optional no form of the command.

Following is an example of this command, where the pseudorandom pattern 2^20 is sent and repeats on the T1 port for 60 minutes:

Router# t1 bert pattern 2^20 interval 60

The BERT command is not saved in NVRAM. The test patterns from the multichannel DS1/PRI port adapter are framed test patterns; therefore, they are inserted into the payload of a framed T1 signal.

To display the BERT results, use the following EXEC commands: show controllers t1 number or show controllers t1 number brief.

The following subsections show some examples of displaying BERT results output.

Examples of Displaying BERT Output During a Test

Examples of Displaying BERT Output After a Completed Test

Examples of Displaying BERT Output When the Test is Stopped Prematurely
