Mike's PBX Cookbook

Set the PBX IP address

Overylay 117 is used to configure IP network interface addresse(s), and perform all IP network related maintenance and diagnostic functions. Typing a question mark at the => prompt gives a listing of available commands.

To change the Switch IP address:

  1. Create a new host (where NAME is a label)

    LD 117
    => NEW HOST <NAME> xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

    eg: NEW HOST PRIMARY_ENET 10.10.10.5
        NEW HOST SECONDARY_ENET 10.10.10.6
    (HA only: IP address of the 'inactive' core)

  2. Assign the new host to the Primary IP address

    LD 117
    => CHG ELNK ACTIVE <NAME>
    => CHG ELNK INACTIVE <NAME>

    eg: CHG ELNK ACTIVE PRIMARY_ENET
        CHG ELNK INACTIVE SECONDARY_ENET
    (HA only)

  3. Set the subnet mask:

    LD 117
    => CHG MASK xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
  4. Set the gateway:

    LD 117
    => NEW ROUTE xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy

    eg: NEW ROUTE 0.0.0.0 10.10.10.254

  5. Update the database:

    LD 117
    => UPDATE DBS
  6. Enable the ELNK (you must toggle it to enable any changes):

    LD 137
    . DIS ELNK
    OK
    . ENL ELNK
    OK
  7. Verify the ENLK:

    LD 137
    . STAT ENLK
    ENABLED
  8. Verify the ELAN

    LD 48
    . STAT ELAN
    ELAN DISABLED
    . ENL ELAN
    OK
  9. Verify the host, subnet, and gateway:

    LD 117
    => PRT HOST
    :
    => PRT MASK
    :
    => PRT ROUTE
  10. Try and PING things:

    LD 117
    => PING xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

    The Call server is on the ELAN, you cannot ping the TLAN from it.

TTY Output:

LD 117
