Console Redirect On Mobility Access Switch

Aruba Employee

Question: How to redirect from one console session to another console session in Stacking

 

Environment: Mobility Access switch in Stacking

 

Logging onto the ArubaStack using a console connection, from any member, redirects the session to the Primary. You can use a control sequence to redirect between the Primary command line and the ArubaStack’s local member’s
(secondary or line card) command line.

Use the following control sequence to redirect console session:
 

    Esc Ctrl-l — redirects the console session from the Primary to a Secondary or Line Card member’s command line. (for “L”ocal)
    Esc Ctrl-r — redirects the Primary console session from a Secondary or Line Card member’s session. This key sequence also enables the console redirect. (for “R”eturn)


To verify the status of the console connection, execute the #show console status command.

(ArubaS2500-24P) #show console status
 
Redirect State: Active
Member Id: 0


From the Primary member console connection:

User:admin
Password: ******
(Primary) >enable
Password:******
(Primary) #show console status
Redirect State: Idle <--
Member Id: 0

From a Non-primary member console connection:

User:admin
Password: ******
(Primary) >enable
Password:******
(Primary) #show console status
Redirect State: Active <--
Member Id: 1

Enter Esc Ctrl-l to move to the local console. You will be required to login again.

*** CONNECTING TO LOCAL SLOT ***
(LC-1) #
User:admin
Password: ******
(LC-1) >enable
Password:******
(LC-1) #show console status
Redirect State: Disabled
Member Id: 1


Note: If there is a disconnect between the Primary and its members, for example during an ArubaStack split or primary down, the console automatically redirects to a member command line until the new primary is elected.
