How does Console Redirect in MAS Stacking works?

Question: How does Console Redirect in MAS Stacking works?

 

 


  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 on which the console cable is connedcted.
 Esc Ctrl-r — redirects the Primary console session from a Secondary or Line Card member’s session to Primary Switch. This key sequence also enables the console redirect.

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

In the example below,
 
the ArubaStack has a Primary and a Secondary members only.

 


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 ***

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