    I have 3 adtran netvanta 1550 wsitches.

    drj361 New Member

      I am trying to setup a vlan in them but I cannot seem to get tot the management console.

      I can boot them and get in with the console cable. all 3 say they are at ip address.

      So I decided that I would turn everything off and isolate the switches and try to connect with http.

      no luck.

      so now I am trying to change their ip address via the console.

      Can you tell me the commands to change them.

      I need to put them in my network anyway and this would get me there I hope.

      I have rebooted them several times, left them off for 30 minutes and still nothing.

      I cannot telnet, ping or manage with http. just the console cable.


      Thanks for any help.

          This switch is shipping with an unsupported BVS1.0 firmware that will be changed, and it does not operate as the Guide says.  This is the reason a corrected guide is not provided.

          ADTRAN apologizes for this current issue.


          To access the device with firmware versions earlier then the supported R13.2.2 ( or current EMR release), you have two options.


          Option 1.  The console port will allow you access to the switch with a serial Cisco cable to the unit.

          From the console interface you can set the IP address of the switch, to allow you web access later.  Defaults -

          Username:  admin

          Password:   password





          1550-24#con t

          1550-24(config)#int vlan 1

          1550-24(config-intf-vlan 1)#ip address /24 <------- Whatever IP address you like

          1550-24(config-intf-vlan 1)#no shut

          1550-24(config-intf-vlan 1)#exit


          Appropriate commands must be issued to preserve configuration.


          Building configuration...

          1. Success!



          Now using a PC connected to an Ethernet port ( with IP address 10 .19.221.51 ) you should be able to access the switch web interface.


          Option 2. If you connect the switch to a network with a DHCP server, you should be able to hit the Web interface at the ( or the DHCP assigned IP address) as the Quick Start Guide documents.  The IP address assigned, will bring up the VLAN interface and then the secondary IP will also be responsive. 


          As far as all Adtran switches, it is recommended to upgrade them to the current EMR release ( R13.2.2 ).  This is especially true of the 1550 series switches since they can become completely un-responsive with BVS1.0 firmware.


          The firmware is available on our website www.ADTRAN.com under Home»Support»Product Downloads»Software Releases


          The upgrade instructions are also linked in the Release Notes of the Firmware release.  It will point to https://supportforums.adtran.com/docs/DOC-1672 for Upgrading Firmware in AOS.


          The web interface firmware upgrade is usually the easiest method.
