We just purchased an 3903x switch and I am wondering how you manage/configure the device? Is it CLI and GUI or just CLI based?
Have you been able to connect to the Serial port from a PC. via Telnet or SSH, or through a terminal server?
Default OOB IP is 172.16.233.214/24.
I believe all of the CES devices are CLI only but there are some tools available from Ciena for managing them are GUI-based, such as ESM.
If you are running the current SAOS, say 6.15.x.x or 6.15, NETCONF can be used to manage the switch remotely, via RPC XML files. MG Soft is one Network Management System (NMS) that can allow the Admin user to perform these tasks. Please be aware that unless you save your Configuration changes to the default startup-config, or other running config file, your changes will be lost if the device reboots prior to saving the changes. this holds true for CLI sand the ESM as well.
I am starting to get the switch figured out. Thanks for the help.
