Re: Baystack 425 flashing amber on all ports
Make sure you're using the correct console cable...if it's not wired correctly, hyperterminal will continue to give you a blank stare no matter what you do. A great way to verify your cable is to try it on another switch that's working ok. Your hyperterminal comm settings should be 9600 baud, 8 data bits, one stop bit, no parity, and flow control disabled...assuming no one changed the default console settings on the switches.
If you are still having trouble getting a prompt from the console, you can try the following procedure, although this is only known to work on earlier versions of the Baystack switches...
Shut down the power and wait for about a minute. With hyperterminal connected...turn on the power and type "NetICs" (don't include the quotes) within 15 seconds of turning on the power. This should place you in a privileged mode and allow you to use the menu to reset the switches to factory defaults. Good luck!

You can connect them using a x-over cable to an unused port. the switch should detect the other switch and trunk it automatically. (don't connect more than 1 or you will get a switching loop and possibly a broadcast storm... which is bad)
Power LED (It should be solid green) if flashing or solid Amber, then a power supply or motherboard problem.
On the back, near the PS2 Ports, are 4 diagnostic LEDs marked ABCD. When running normally they are all green. During boot they flash on and off during each sequence of the POST, if they stop at t code AAGG for example is bad RAM
If the Power and Diag LEDs are normal, then reseat the video card if an AGP card is installed or remove it an try the integrated video.
Hi Franceso, plz specify Is it powering ON ? Which LED is glowing? These leds are there on the front panel :
1 Power On/Standby button 2 System power LED Green = Power on Amber = System shut down, but power still applied Off = No power
3 Internal health LED (Wave sign in BOX) Green = Normal Amber = System degraded. To identify the component in a degraded state, refer to system board LEDs. Red = System critical. To identify the component in a critical state, refer to system board LEDs. Off = Normal (when in standby mode)
4 External health LED (power supply) Green = Normal Amber = Power redundancy failure Red = Critical power supply failure 5 NIC 1 activity LED Green = Network link Flashing = Network link and activity Off = No link to network. 6 UID LED Blue = Activated Flashing = System remotely managed Off = Deactivated 7 UID button
If it is Internal health led then any internal h/w issue is suspected. If it is external health led then any power supply or power source related issue is suspected. Also
check the status of the server & its IML (Integrated Management
Logs) in ilo (Integrated Lights Out ) if it is configured. (2nd RJ45
port in rear)
Very likely an IP problem. The server in City Hall is most likely doing the DHCP assignments for all connected machines, and if there is a LAN server running DHCP also in the firehall, there will be a conflict, which may not manifest itself until the assigned IP leases expire and renew. If this is the case, try a router WITH DHCP DISABLED between the two systems, WAN side toward City Hall. As a quick test, disconnect the cable and run IPCONFIG on a firehouse machine. Note the IP, it should begin with 10, 172 or 192. Reboot the machine, run IPCONFIG again. If the IP comes back, you have DHCP running on something. If you see something like 169.254.???.??? you do not, in that case try hooking up a router configured just as it comes from the box. If anything in the firehouse is wireless, making connection thru a wireless router, the problem may be a simple miswire. WAN side toward City Hall and one of the ports toward your switch, don't use the other three. May need to use the uplink port or a crossover cable between router and switch.

Hi from the command line interface you will need to login and then type enable (enter) configure (enter), interface fast ethernet all (enter), no shutdown port (port #).
Here is a link to the CLI manual if you need more help:
Let me know how it goes or if you need more help.
I think ya gonna find ya modem has gone "toes up"... It may well be in the power supply section (PSU)... I guess ya could try a "Shotgun" replacement of all the PSU components.. If this don't "Fix" it.. then I am sorry but ya up for a replacement.. which may be the best option in any event?
The Nortel support site has several support documents including a ?quick setup? guide as well as the full installation manual. I wasn?t quite sure exactly what you were asking for but this should help get you started. If you have any other additional questions let us know.
