MORE INFORMATION

  • Requirements
  • Terminal Emulator, such as PuTTy or Hyperterminal.
  • LAN connection to PDU if you are using Hyperterminal.
  • Enlogic J45-to-DB9 serial cable if you are using PuTTy (reference: EA9119 )
  • FTP client such as Filezilla or FlashFXP
  • Set Emulator configuration to
  • Bits per second 115200
  • Data bits 8
  • Parity none
  • Stop bits 1
  • Flow control none
  • These settings are used for both PuTTy and Hyperterminal.

Procedure The new firmware and bootloader files must be transferred to the correct folder in the PDU storage area. CLI instructions can then be sent over the serial or Telnet connection to perform the upgrades. Download zip file of latest firmware updates from the Enlogic Downloads Page and unzip to a suitable place on your PC. The files PDU.bin (Firmware) and BOOT.bin (Bootloader) will be found in the set of files contained in the download. Ensure that the FTP port is open on the PDU. This can be confirmed using the web interface ( tab “Device Configuration->Network Services->FTP”, tick “Enable FTP access”. Use FTP to login to the PDU with admin credentials. The structure of the PDU/ILM FTP area is as follows: root conf fw -> contains the files BOOT.bin and PDU.bin info lang log mib web Perform an FT transfer of the BDU.bin file and the BOOT.bin file to the “fw” folder in the PDU. FTP will ask whether to overwrite the existing files, type “yes” to overwrite and continue. Latest firmware and Bootloader files are now loaded onto the PDU. To complete the update process open a serial or telnet connection to the PDU. In PuTTy, open a connection using admin credentials.Or in Hyperterminal, open a Serial connection or a Telnet/LAN connection, using admin credentials. Type “sys upd lan” and confirm by typing “Y” when asked. Th ePDU wiil reboot automatically once the upgrade is finished. Type “sys upd boot” and confirm by typing “Y” when asked. Th PDU wiil reboot automatically once the upgrade is finished. Firmware and Booloader have now been updated. Close FTP and serial/Telnet connections.

Summary

  1. Connect a standard Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the EN Series PDU and the other end of the Ethernet cable directly to your laptop/PC. Note: A cross over cable is not required.
  2. When the PDU completes a live connection, the Ethernet port on the PDU shows a solid green light on the left and a flashing yellow light on the right to indicate successful connectivity.
  3. When connected, and with no DHCP service found, the PDU will revert to a static IP address of 192.168.0.1
  4. Assign your laptop/PC’s Ethernet port an IP address in the 192.168.0.2-244/24 range. Note: Do NOT assign 192.168.0.1 to your laptop/PC.
  5. In a standard web browser, enter the URL ‘http://192.168.0.1’ and configure the PDU, or access the CLI using SSH at 192.168.0.1:22

Note: The default username is admin. The default password is 12345678. Configuring the PDU with a static IP address overrides the default IP address.

The EN series PDU can be accessed using its static IP address.

  1. Connect a standard Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the EN Series PDU.
  2. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to your Laptop/PC.
  3. When the PDU connects to a network, the Ethernet port on the PDU shows a solid green light on the left and a flashing yellow light on the right to indicate successful connectivity.
  4. Assign your Ethernet port an IP address in the 192.168.0.0/24 range.
  5. When connected, with no DHCP service found, the PDU will revert to a static IP address of 192.168.0.1.

Note: DO NOT assign the Laptop/PC IP address as 192.168.0.1. In a standard web browser, enter the ‘http://192.168.0.1’ and proceed to configure the PDU, or access the CLI using SSH or Telnet (NB. Telnet is disabled by default). Note: The default username is admin. The default password is 12345678. Configuring the PDU with a static IP address will override this feature.

Summary

This guide describes how to change an IP address on a PDU that has got a DHCP address.

Applies To

All EN and EZ Products (excluding Enpowered PDUs not yet fitted with a Network Management Card)

More Information

Once the PDU or in-line meter (ILM) is powered on and connected to a managed switch the device will be given a DHCP address by a DHCP server if available. If no DHCP server is available to issue an IP address the PDU or ILM will auto assign the IP address of 192.168.0.1 to itself. Use a browser to go the website of the PDU (eg http://192.168.0.1) You will be presented with a login box where you will have to enter your admin username and password. The default is “admin” and password of “12345678” (note, when you log in for the first time you will be asked to change your password, please keep this information safe) Once logged in select the Device Configuration drop down menu and click on Network Configuration Select the IP protocol you wish to use IPv4 Only IPv6 Only IPv4 & IPv6 Select the DNS Resolver Preference IPv4 Address IPv6 Address Select the IPv4 Settings tab and change/input the following information in order to configure the network card IP Auto Configuration (STATIC or DHCP) IP Address Subnet Mask Default Gateway Primary DNS Server Secondary DNS Server DNS Suffix (optional) Once you have populated this information select OK. Then select System Administration and click on Network Card Reset and the PDU or ILM will restart and you will be able to access the PDU or ILM on your selected IP address

Summary

This guide describes how to connect both PDUs in a rack to 2 separate secure networks simultaneously, using Enlogic’s Dual Network Access (DNA, patent pending).

Applies to

All EN (excluding Enpowered PDUs not yet fitted with a Network Management Card) and EZ range products. DNA works using a redundant power delivery design (i.e., 2 rack PDUs for each IT rack).

More Information

Setup should follow the below steps:

  1. Connect the network cable for ‘Network A’ into the Ethernet port on PDU ‘A’. Then connect the network cable for ‘Network B’ into the Ethernet port on PDU ‘B’. Each PDU is now networked separately (see IP Addressing -Guide for configuration options).
  2. Connect the port labelled Rs485-2 on PDU ‘A’ to the port labelled Serial+Rs485-1 on PDU ‘B’, using a standard ethernet cable. A Rs485 Daisy Chain now exists between PDUs ‘A’ and ‘B’ where ‘A’ is the master.
  3. Now connect the port labelle Rs485-2 on PDU ‘B’ to the port labelled Serial+Rs485-1 on PDU ‘A’, using a standard ethernet cable. A Rs485 Daisy Chain now exists between PDUs ‘B’ and ‘A’ where ‘B’ is the master.

Each PDU is now networked separately but connected to the other PDU as a master via the two way daisy chain, thus making data from itself and it’s slave accessible on both Networks ‘A’ and ‘B’. The level of access granted to each network is governed by the role(s) assigned to the users on that network, within each PDUs Web Interface (see PDU and Inline Meter Web Interface- Guide and Setting Up Access Roles- Guide for more information). For example, Network A has administrator access, while Network B has view only access.

Summary

This guide will describe how to replace a network card in a PDU or In-Line meter (ILM) while the device is still operational (hot swappable).

Applies to

All EN and EZ range products.

More Information

You will need the following tools to complete this work 1x TT10x75 Screw Driver 1x Enlogic network card

Start by unscrewing the screws from the top and bottom of the front of the Network Management Card (NMC). Then remove the ribbon cable from the back of the network card and replace the network card with the new one, ensuring the ribbon cable is securely fitted to the network card. Place the network card back into the casing and screw the network card back into place. Once this has been done the IP address will be retained but you will need to reconfigure the network card.

The EN series PDU can be accessed using its static IP address.

 

  1. Connect a standard Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the EN Series PDU.
  2. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to your Laptop/PC.
  3. When the PDU connects to a network, the Ethernet port on the PDU shows a solid green light on the left and a flashing yellow light on the right to indicate successful connectivity.
  4. Assign your Ethernet port an IP address in the 192.168.0.0/24 range.
  5. When connected, with no DHCP service found, the PDU will revert to a static IP address of 192.168.0.1.

Note: DO NOT assign the Laptop/PC IP address as 192.168.0.1. In a standard web browser, enter the ‘http://192.168.0.1’ and proceed to configure the PDU, or access the CLI using SSH or Telnet (NB. Telnet is disabled by default). Note: The default username is admin. The default password is 12345678. Configuring the PDU with a static IP address will override this feature.

Retrieving information about current, voltage, power etc. from an individual outlet can be achieved in two different ways. Taking current as an example: The MIB file contains the entire function tree for the PDU, including functions such as outlet current delivery, see in the MIB: pduOutletMeteredStatusCurrent “Returns the current draw, in tenths of Amps, of the load on the PDU outlet being queried.” ::= { pduOutletMeteredStatusEntry 5 } In the web interface you can find this info in the left-hand window “PDU explorer”, click on the small triangle next to the yellow folder marked Outlet Power Management and you will see a list of all the outlets. If you click on an outlet, you will see a new page of information appear including current, voltage, active power etc.

Summary

The Command Line Interface (CLI) is an alternate method used to manage and control the PDU status and parameters, as well as basic admin functions. Through the CLI a user can:

Reset the PDU Display PDU and network properties Configure the PDU and network settings Switch outlets on/off View user information

The CLI can be accessed over a serial connection using a program such as HyperTerminal, or through a Telnet or SSH client such as PuTTY.

Applies to

All EN (excluding Enpowered PDUs not yet fitted with a Network Management Card) and EZ range products.

More Information

Logging in with HyperTerminal To login through HyperTerminal, set the COM settings to the following parameters: Bits per second: 115200 Data bits: 8 Parity: None Stop bits: 1 Flow control: None
