Enabling FlowVision On-box Support

To manage and configure the OPB switch using a graphical user interface (GUI), enable FlowVision support on the device.

FlowVision utilizes TCP port 443 for its Web-GUI.

  1. Configure Management IP on the OPB Switch

//Configure Mgmt IP

pbnoscli# configure terminal 
pbnoscli(config)# interface mgmt 
pbnoscli(config-if)# ip address gateway 
pbnoscli(config-if)# end
//Verify Management IP

pbnoscli# show ip management 
eth0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
        inet  netmask  broadcast
        inet6 fe80::63f:72ff:fec4:1a68  prefixlen 64  scopeid 0x20<link>
        ether 04:3f:72:c4:1a:68  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)
        RX packets 1095  bytes 98068 (95.7 KiB)
        RX errors 0  dropped 0  overruns 0  frame 0
        TX packets 785  bytes 542645 (529.9 KiB)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0
        device memory 0xf8100000-f81fffff  
  1. Enable FlowVision Ob-Box Support

//Enable FlowVision On-Box Support

pbnoscli# configure terminal 
pbnoscli(config)# flowvision        
  enable                enable/disable the flowvision tool
pbnoscli(config)# flowvision enable 
pbnoscli(config)# end
  1. Verify the reachability of the OPB switch from the management system

// Check Ping for reachability
aviz@npbsrv01:~$ ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.614 ms

rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.268/0.399/0.614/0.152 ms

// Try Telnet to check the status of Port:443

aviz@npbsrv01:~$ telnet 443
