A question about managing network in OA

I have a requirment to imitate pulling the network cable out from the blade. Does anyone know how to disable a blade's network from OA GUI or Command line? Or, can I do this from OA? Thanks.

Re: A question about managing network in OA

You can't do it from the OA. It would have to be done from the switch in the interconnect bay. What model of interconnect do you have? You can use the port mapping in the OA so you know what port you want to disable:

For a Pass-Through module:
-physically unplug the corresponding cable

for a GBE2c:
1) /c/port x/dis
2) apply (the port will be disabled
3) /c/port x/ena (to re-enable)
4) apply

for a Cisco 3020:
1) enable
2) conf t
3) int gi0/x
4) shutdown (port will be disabled)
5) no shutdown (port is re-enabled)

Re: A question about managing network in OA

The module of interconnect I using is GBE2c.
I see your instruction for a GBE2c:
1) /c/port x/dis
2) apply (the port will be disabled
3) /c/port x/ena (to re-enable)
4) apply

But I don't know how to connect to the interconnect from the command line.
I can use telnet to OA now.
Can you give me more detailed information? Thanks a lot.

You can connect to the switch via Serial port and using Windows Hyper Terminal

Re: A question about managing network in OA

if you are connecting from OA command line Use

Connect Interconnect command.

To disconnect the Serial session use " and _ "

Then disconnect, you will come back to OA CLI.
