EasyOperation

This chapter describes how to configure roles, groups, and clients to implement Easy-Operation.

The Easy-Operation feature implements automatic version file loading on newly delivered or unconfigured devices and batch upgrades of devices on a campus network. Table 2-38 lists the device models and versions that support the Easy-Operation feature.

  • If the clients are chassis switches, EasyDeploy can only be applied to the batch upgrade and batch configuration scenarios.
  • If the clients are fixed-configuration switches, EasyDeploy applies to the batch upgrade, batch configuration, unconfigured device deployment, and faulty device replacement scenarios.
NOTE:

Only Role configuration option is available for the devices that do not support the Commander role. Additionally, such devices can only be configured as clients.

The Group configuration and Client configuration options are not available to the devices that function as clients.

Role Configuration

On the Role Configuration page, you can configure global Easy-Operation parameters for a device, including the role, Commander IP address and port, and default files to be downloaded.

Context

Before configuring EasyOperation on a device, determine the role of the device.

Procedure

Configuring a device as a client

  1. Choose System Management > EasyOperation > Role Configuration in the navigation tree to display the Role Configuration page.

  2. Set Role to Client, as shown in Figure 2-75.
    Figure 2-75  Role Configuration

  3. Enter the Commander IP address and UDP port. The Commander IP address you enter here must be the same as that configured on the Commander. If you keep the UDP port field blank, the default UDP port is used.
  4. Click Apply.

    After you click Apply, the Group Configuration and Client Configuration tabs become unavailable.

Configuring a device as a Commander
  1. Choose System Management > EasyOperation > Role Configuration in the navigation tree to display the Role Configuration page.

  2. Set Role to Commander, as shown in Figure 2-76.
    Figure 2-76  Role Configuration

    Table 2-39 describes the parameters on the Role Configuration page. If some areas are folded, click to expand the areas.

    Table 2-39  Role Configuration parameters

    Parameter

    Description

    Commander IP address

    This parameter is mandatory. The Commander IP address must exist on the device that functions as the Commander.

    UDP port

    If you keep this field blank, the default UDP port is used.

    Automatic addition of clients

    If you select Enable, the Commander automatically learns client information, including each client's MAC address, ESN, IP address, device type, device model, system software name, configuration file name, and patch file name. This function enables the Commander to monitor and manage basic information and version files for clients on the network.

    NOTE:

    After the client auto join function is enabled, the Commander may learn information about unknown clients. If you do not want the Commander to manage unknown clients, disable this function.

    Server Type Configuration

    Server type

    Options are FTP, SFTP, and TFTP.

    NOTE:

    FTP and TFTP cannot ensure secure file transfer. SFTP is recommended on networks that require high security.

    IP

    Enter the IP address of the file server.

    User Name

    Enter the user name used to log in to the file server.

    Password

    Enter the password used to log in to the file server.

    Configuration file backup

    Options are No backup, Duplicate, and Overwrite.

    Time interval

    Set the interval at which you want the Commander to back up configuration files.

    Download File Configuration

    File activation mode

    Options are Default mode and Reset mode.

    By default, if downloaded files include a software package (*.cc), clients activate all the downloaded files by restarting. In a batch upgrade, if downloaded files include a configuration file, clients activate all the downloaded files by restarting.

    File activation time

    Options are immediate, Delayed, and Scheduled. If you select Delayed or Scheduled, the related parameter is displayed for you to configure.

    Automatically clear the storage

    If you select Yes, clients will delete non-startup system software packages if they do not have sufficient space for downloaded files.
    NOTE:

    Whether clients can automatically clear their storage medium depends on the file server type. If clients download files from a TFTP server, they cannot automatically clear their storage medium because they cannot obtain the sizes of downloaded files. If an FTP or SFTP server is used but the server cannot return the file sizes, clients cannot automatically clear their storage medium.

    Default Download File Information

    The files specified here are default files to be downloaded to clients. You can specify a maximum of three self-defined files.

    If no file is specified in role configuration or group configuration, the default file information is used.

  3. Set parameters on the Role Configuration page.
  4. Click Apply.

Group Configuration

On the Group Configuration page, you can query, add, or delete groups.

Context

You can configure a group to:
  • Perform a batch upgrade for clients.
  • Deploy unconfigured devices.
Procedure
  • Query group information.

    1. Choose System Management > EasyOperation > Group Configuration in the navigation tree to display the Group Configuration page, as shown in Figure 2-77.

      After setting the matching method and rule, click Add.

      NOTE:

      A device type-based or device model-based group supports only one matching rule. A MAC-based, ESN-based, or IP address-based group supports a maximum of 256 rules.
