return switch to Extreme Networks

May use to login before AAA initialization

Slide 10

CLI - Command Prompt

The command prompt tells us four things: Unsaved configuration

* X450a-24t.6 #
New change to switch configuration not saved Switch SNMP Sysname Number of next command to be executed Privilege Level

Switch name Number of commands executed during this session Privilege level

Slide 11

# show session {{detail} {<sessID>}} {history} # clear session [<sessId> | all]

Management Accounts

User account can:

- View anything except: - Switch configuration - Switch management - User accounts - SNMP community strings - Use PING - Change own password Prompt type: X450a-24t >
Slide 12

Administration account can:

- View and change anything - Add/Remove users - Change user passwords - Disconnect Telnet sessions Prompt type: X450a-24t #

# create account [admin | user] <name> {<password>} # delete account <name>

Display user account information with: show account

Only admin-level users can create or delete accounts.

Default accounts have no passwords. configure
account <name>

1 to 32 characters case-sensitive

The default admin account cannot be deleted. You may create password policies.

For security, always configure a password on the default admin account.

Slide 13

# configure failsafe-account

Failsafe Login
The account of last resort to access the ExtremeXOS switch when the admin password has been lost. Never displayed but always present. To access the switch using the failsafe account, you must be connected using a permitted method: all control serial ssh telnet Changes to failsafe account and password are immediately stored in NVRAM, not in the configuration file.
Note: The information that you use to configure the failsafe account cannot be recovered by Extreme Networks Technical support. Protect this information carefully.
Slide 14

# configure cli max-sessions <num_sessions> # configure cli max-failed-logins <max_attempts>

Limiting CLI Sessions and Failed Logins

Limit the number of simultaneous CLI sessions: configure cli max-sessions 4 Limit the number of failed login attempts: configure cli max-failed-logins 2 Lock out a user after consecutive failed login attempts: configure account [all | <name>] password-policy
lockout-on-login-failures on

View the accounts that are currently locked out with the following command: show account Admin-level user must clear lockout condition: clear account [all | <name>] lockout
Slide 15

# configure telnet vr admin_vrouter

Restricting Telnet Access

Restrict which virtual router interfaces listen for Telnet connection requests: configure telnet vr admin_vrouter

Slide 16

Configuring Management Access

Dedicated management port IP address required to access switch Out-of-band management for: Telnet SSH SNMP SNTP RADIUS RMON Regional Offices Remote logging Local logging

IP Network

Management Station

Slide 17

# enable ssh2 # scp2

Using SSH and SCP

Used to encrypt Telnet sessions between a network administrator using SSH2 client software and the switch. Secure copy is included in the SSH module and is used to transfer files using encrypted data between the switch and an SSH2 client. To enable the switch to function as an SSH2 server:
enable ssh2

To copy a file using secure copy:

scp2 {cipher [3des | blowfish]} {port <portnum>} {debug <debug_level>} <user>@ [<hostname> | <ipaddress>]:<remote_file> <local_file> {vr <vr_name>}

Copy policy and configuration files to the switch using the Secure Copy
Protocol 2 (SCP2).

Note: Installing the SSH module also provides secure web (HTTPS / SSL) functionality.
Slide 18

Using SNMP
The switch must have an IP address. The SNMP agent can then be accessed from a Network Management Station (NMS).

IP Network/ Intranet NMS Any SNMP based network manager can manage a switch. Switch MIB must be installed correctly on the mgmt workstation.
Slide 19

Slide 21

Authenticating Switch Management Users

RADIUS Client Remote Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS) A mechanism for authenticating and centrally administering access to
network nodes

Allows authentication for Telnet, Vista, or console switch access TACACS+ Terminal Access Controller Access Control System Plus Similar to the RADIUS Client Used to authenticate prospective users attempting to administer the switch Used to communicate between the switch and an authentication database NOTE: You cannot configure RADIUS and TACACS+ at the same time.

# configure sntp-client # enable sntp-client

Using SNTP
Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) Version 3. Used to update/synchronize the internal switch clock from a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server. When enabled, the switch sends out a periodic query to the NTP server or the switch listens to broadcast NTP updates.


NTP Server


# configure sntp-client [pri | sec] server [<ip address> | <host name>] {vr <vr_name>} # enable sntp-client
