Feedback CLI

This chapter describes the configuration SEFOS using the CLI. Use the CLI to configure SEFOS software from a console attached to the serial port of the switch or from a remote terminal using ssh.

1.1 SEFOS Overview

SEFOS is a layer 2 and layer 3 software solution that provides support for Ethernet switching and routing. It comprises the necessary switching, management, and system level features. SEFOS provides the basic bridging functionality and also offers features such as link aggregation, GVRP/GMRP, IGMP snooping, and network access control.

The native SEFOS CLI commands are the main tools for configuring the commonly used layer 2 and layer 3 protocols and switch interface features. In addition to its native CLI commands, SEFOS provides a subset of CLI commands that adhere to the industry-standard CLI syntax. When an industry-standard command is available, the SEFOS native CLI command is shown first, with the industry-standard command shown after a slash (/).

In the following example, the set port gvrp command is the SEFOS native CLI command, and the set port gvrp enable | disable command is the industry-standard CLI command:

set port gvrp / set port gvrp enable | disable

Use the industry-standard CLI command whenever it is available.

The SEFOS CLI supports a simple login authentication mechanism. The authentication is based on a user name and password you provide during login. The root user is created by default with password admin123.

Refer to the user’s guide and software configuration guide for details on how to start SEFOS. When SEFOS is started, you must enter the root user name and password at the login prompt to access the CLI shell:

Sun Ethernet Fabric Operating System
SEFOS Login: root
Password: ********

The User EXEC mode is now available. The following section provides a detailed description of the various modes available for SEFOS.

Note - The type of Ethernet interface is determined during system startup. While configuring interface-specific parameters, the Ethernet type must be specified correctly. A FastEthernet interface cannot be configured as an extreme-ethernet interface and vice-versa.

1.2 CLI Command Modes

See the table in CLI Command Modes for a quick reference of the command modes used in this document.

1.2.1 User EXEC Mode

When you log into the device, you are in User EXEC mode. In general, User EXEC commands temporarily change terminal settings, perform basic tests, and list system information.

1.2.2 Privileged EXEC Mode

Privileged access is protected with a case sensitive password. The prompt is the device name followed by the hash (#) sign.

1.2.3 Global Configuration Mode

Global Configuration commands apply to features that affect the system as a whole, rather than to any specific interface.

1.2.4 Interface Configuration Mode Physical Interface Mode

Performs interface-specific operations. Port Channel Interface Mode

Performs port-channel-specific operations. VLAN Interface Mode

Performs L3-IPVLAN-specific operations. Tunnel Interface Mode

Performs tunnel-specific operations.

1.2.5 Interface Range Mode

Specifies a range of interfaces, such as consecutive ports, to certain single interface commands. This mode does not specify a single port at a time.

1.2.6 Config-VLAN Mode

Performs VLAN specific operations.

1.2.7 Line Configuration Mode

Modifies the operations of a terminal line. These commands are used to change terminal parameter settings line by line or a range of lines at a time.

1.2.8 Profile Configuration Mode

Performs profile-specific operations.

1.2.9 Protocol-Specific Modes PIM Component Mode

Configures the PIM component. To enter PIM Component mode, use the Global Configuration mode ip pim component componentid command. Router Configuration Mode

Configures the router protocol. To enter Router Configuration mode, use the Global Configuration mode router router-protocol command. Route Map Configuration Mode

Configure Route Map parameters. To enter Router Map Configuration mode, use the Global Configuration mode route-map 1-20 [{permit | deny}] [1-10] command.

The following is a flowdiagram that shows the hierarchy of accessing command modes.
