This document provides step by step instruction on getting started with ENCS 5400 series platform.
ENCS 5400 series is a purpose built compute platform for networking use-cases. Following is a quick overview of hardware ports.ENCS Management Options
ENCS 5400 Front Panel
Initial setup and management
Power on the ENCS. Plugging the power cable is adequate to power on the platform, there is no requirement to press power button.
Connect the MGMT-CIMC port(#12) to a PC with address in 192.168.1.3 or above.
CIMC should now be accessible for chassis management via https://192.168.1.2. Default username is "admin", default password is "password". Change the IP address, netmask, default gateway via admin->network settings GUI and move the Ethernet cable connection to lan switch.
Install NFVIS (Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure Software)
Connect to CIMC web interface and bringup the KVM console (With CIMC version 3.1.x and later, a HTML based KVM console can be launched)
Virtual Media--> Activate Virtual Devices
Virtual Media--> Map CD/DVD
Select the NFVIS iso file (iso can be downloaded from this link). The latest available NFVIS version is 3.12.2FC2
Click on Map Drive
Power cycle system (cold boot)
Hit F6 to enter the Boot Menu
Select vDVD mapped KVM
Proceed with the installation of NFVIS software. NFVIS Fresh Install from ISO
Change Admin password from default admin:Admin123#
In factory default setting of NFVIS, for "admin" username, first step is to change password from default password "Admin123#" to something like "Cisco123#", combination of uppercase, lowercase, number and special character.
Configure hostname, and assign a management IP for NFVIS access.
Connect Ethernet MGMT-CPU port(#6) to the network for management access. For enabling IP based access over Ethernet for NFVIS, use the serial console connection port #5.
After the system setting configuration in NFVIS, the NFVIS local portal is accessible via port #6 MGMT-CPU Ethernet connection.
1. NFVIS can be accessed by default via the FP GE WAN ports or via the dedicated Management port
2. NFVIS 3.10+ Default association: GE0-0 to wan-br, GE0-1 to wan2-br. Both wan-br and wan2-br are enabled for DHCP by default. DHCP is attempted(cycle between GE0-0, GE0-1) until one of the ports acquire DHCP address.
3. PnP will be attempted over the wan facing network with path to default gateway. Pre-NFVIS 3.10, no wan2-br created by default, no dhcp by default via GE0-1.
4. The Management port on ENCS is set to to 192.168.1.1 to access NFVIS
5. All Switch ports – GE 1/0 to GE1/7 is associated to LAN bridge
6. An internal management network (int-mgmt-net) and a bridge (int-mgmt-br) is created and is internally used for system monitoring.
Upload, Register and Deploy Router
Next step is to ensure that the image package for NFVIS is uploaded in the local repository. Image Registration is attempted automatically
Does anyone know the difference between these 2 routers please ? Both appear to be LTE, EMEA and NA with ADSL2 Annex A etc. Only difference is the letter A or E. I'm guessing A = North America, E = Europe maybe ?
My purpose and therefore configuration are very simple, but somehow it does not work. Purpose: create ACL in 2960 to deny all traffic coming from 192.168.2.60 to 192.168.1.50 via the port GigabitEthernet1/0/10. It permits all other typ...
