    Assign an ext. name

      Hi all,

      Can you assign an extension name (or description) to each ActivReach port ?

      Thanks M.A.

          Thank you for asking this question in the support community.  Let me know if I do not understand your question properly, but I believe you are referring to the description command.  For example if I wanted to add a line of text (description) to gigabit-switchport 0/1 that read "CONNECTS TO OFFICE 1," I would enter the following commands:

           

          > enable

          <enter password if prompted>

          # configure terminal

          (config)# interface gigabit-switchport 0/1

          (config-giga-swx 0/1)# description CONNECTS TO OFFICE 1

           

          The configuration would look similar to the following:

           

          interface gigabit-switchport 0/1

            description CONNECTS TO OFFICE 1

            no shutdown

           

          Furthermore, this can be achieved in the web interface by navigating to the following:  Data > Ports > giga-swx 0/1 > Port Description:

           

          I hope that makes sense, but please do not hesitate to reply with any additional questions or information.  I will be happy to help in any way I can.

              You can close it.

              Thanks

                I just wanted to jump in and add to this post that ADTRAN has now released an ActivReach Configuration and Troubleshooting guide called ADTRAN NetVanta 1235P/1535P ActivReach Technology Setup and Configuration guide for any customers who may be looking at this thread for ActivReach information. Check it out!
