System Maintenance

System Maintenance

This chapter describes how to maintain the switch system, including system restart, upgrade, patch management, log, and alarm.

License

This section describes the functions of loading license files and displaying license status.

Context

You need to activate licenses in either of the following situations:
  • Purchasing a license to obtain permissions on related functions after you purchase a new device.
  • Applying for a new license file, and upgrading and loading the license file when the license file is loaded on the device and a new feature is required.
NOTE:

This node is only available in the NAC unified mode.

This node is only supported by the S5720HI, S6720EI, and S6720S-EI.

Procedure

  1. Choose Maintenance > System Maintenance > License to access the License page, as shown in Figure 1-190.

    Figure 1-190  License

    Table 1-152 describes the parameters on the page.

    Table 1-152  Parameters on the License page

    Item

    Description

    License status

    • not loaded: default status. By default, a license is not loaded after the system starts or when it is invalid.

    • Normal: A commercial license enters the Normal state after it is loaded.

    • Trial: A license enters the Trial state when the loaded ESN does not match the license or after the license expires.

    • Demo: A temporary license enters the Demo state after it is loaded.

    • Emergency: When a license enters the Emergency state, dynamic resources on the device are free from the license controls. That is, the device runs with the maximum configurations of dynamic resources. A license can remain in Emergency state for at most seven days. After seven days, the license enters the original state.

    License revocation code

    This item is displayed only when an invalid license file exists in the system.

    Function Control Items

  2. Click in Load License and select the license file to be uploaded.
  3. Click Activate to activate the license file.

Restart (Standalone)

This section describes how to restart the device and perform related operations during system restart.

Context

After you specify the system software, configuration file, and patch file for next startup, you must restart the device to make the files take effect. The web system provides two restart modes: immediate restart and timed restart. After you restart a device, services will be interrupted; therefore, you need to restart the device when the device is idle. If the device is idle currently, restart the device immediately. If the device is busy processing services, restart the device at a scheduled time when the device is idle.

You are advised to save the current configuration before you restart a device. Otherwise, the configuration may be lost.

The system software and configuration file are for reference only. The actual output information may differ from the preceding information.

Procedure

  1. Choose Maintenance > System Maintenance > Restart to access the Restart page, as shown in Figure 1-191.

Administrator

This chapter describes how to manage web users and password policies.

Administrator

You can create and maintain a database on the switch to manage web platform users.

Context

User management includes creating a local user account (web platform user with the access type HTTP) and modifying or deleting existing user accounts.

By default, a local user named admin exists in the system. The user password is admin@huawei.com, and access type is HTTP.

NOTE:

Security risks exist if the user access type is set to Telnet, FTP or HTTP. You are advised to configure the required access modes only.

A simple password brings security risks. It is recommended that you change the password to a complicated one after logging in to the web network management system using the default account. A password should consist of at least 8 characters, and contain at least two types of the following: lowercase letters, uppercase letters, numerals, special characters (such as ! $ # %). The password cannot contain spaces and single quotation marks ('). In addition, the password cannot be the same as the user name or the mirror user name.

If the password configured in local user creation or modification is the same as the default password, security risk exists. To ensure device security, change the password periodically.

The user list includes information about the users whose user types are FTP, HTTP, SSH, Telnet, Terminal, or x25-pad. The access type of a created user can be FTP, HTTP, SSH, Telnet, Terminal, or x25-pad.

Procedure

  • Create a user account.

SNMP

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a standard network management protocol widely used on TCP/IP networks. SNMP uses a central computer (a network management station) that runs network management software to manage network elements.

SNMP Setting

Context

SNMP agent is an agent program on the managed device. The SNMP agent maintains information for the managed device, responds to the requests from the NMS, and sends management data to the NMS. Before the NMS manages a device through SNMP, the SNMP agent must be enabled on the device and a proper SNMP version needs to be selected.

A web system supports SNMPv1, SNMPv2c and SNMPv3. The device and NMS must use the same SNMP version.

NOTE:

If a device is managed by multiple NMSs running different SNMP versions, all the SNMP versions need to be set on the device so that the device can communicate with these NMSs.

Table 1-166  Usage scenarios of SNMP

Version

Usage Scenario

SNMPv1

Applicable to small networks with simple networking and low security requirements or small networks with good security and stability, such as campus networks and small enterprise networks.

SNMPv2c

Applicable to medium and large networks with low security requirements or with good security but on which services are so busy that traffic congestion may occur.

SNMPv3

Applicable to networks of various scales, especially networks that have strict security requirements and can be managed only by authorized network administrators. For example, SNMPv3 can be used if data between the NMS and managed device needs to be transmitted over a public network.

The community/group management configurations vary with SNMP versions. After global SNMP settings are complete, configure the communities/groups. Table 1-167 lists the mappings between SNMP versions and configurations.
