Quick Guide Managing A Cisco Internetwork

  1. 1. CCNA4.com Quick Guide - Managing A Cisco Internetwork Managing a Cisco Internetwork - Cisco Router Components -- Bootstrap, POST, ROM Monitor (all in ROM); Mini-IOS (RXBOOT, or bootloader), RAM, ROM, Flash, NVRAM, Configuration register. - Cisco Router Boot Sequence -- POST; Bootstrap loads the IOS; the IOS loads a configuration ("startup-config", if present in NVRAM). - Configuration register -- 16 bits, read 15-0 from left to right. Default is 0x2102 = 0010 0001 0000 0010 -- load IOS from flash and look for "startup-config". - Configuration register common values in bits (and hex): - 0-3 -- 0x0000-0x000F -- Boot field, as follows: - 00 -- ROM monitor mode -- register = 2100. You must manually boot the router with the "b" command. - 01 -- Boot image from ROM -- register = 2101. - 02-F -- Specifies a default boot filename. - 6 -- 0x0040 -- ignore NVRAM contents. - 7 -- 0x0080 -- OEM bit enabled. - 8 -- 0x0100 -- Break disabled. - 10 -- 0x0400 -- IP broadcast with all zeros. - 11-12 -- 0x0800-0x1000 -- console line speed. - 13 -- 0x2000 -- Boot default ROM software if network boot fails. - 14 -- 0x4000 -- IP broadcasts do not have net numbers. - 15 -- 0x8000 -- Enable diagnostic messages and ignore NVM contents. - "sh version" shows the current value of the configuration register. - Change the config register (run this from "config t" mode) -- "config-register 0x0101" -- Boot into ROM mode and then show the current config register value. - Recovering Passwords: - Perform a "break" while the router boots -- you should see "rommon 1 >". - "confreg 0x2142" -- turns on bit 6 -- ignore NVRAM contents. Note: On a Cisco 2500 router, type "o" after the break, then "o/r 0x2142". ! To boot from a different file, use "boot system ", or "boot system tftp ". - Reboot the router -- "reset" ("I" on a 2500 -- meaning "initialize"). - Fix password and reboot -- "copy start run", "config t", "enable secret ", "config-register 0x2102", Ctrl-Z, "copy run start", "reload". - Back up and Restore the Cisco IOS: - Check the flash and the TFTP server -- "sh flash", "ping". - Backup the IOS image -- "copy flash tftp". - Restore of Upgrade the Cisco Router IOS -- "copy tftp flash" (you may be asked to erase existing flash data). You can also erase it manually with "erase flash:". - Set up a Cisco router to be a TFTP server -- "config t", "tftp-server flash:." - Back up or Restore the Cisco Configuration -- "copy run tftp", "copy tftp run". Erase the startup config -- "erase start". - Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) -- collect hardware and protocol information about neighbor devices. "sh cdp" shows CDP values: - CDP timer -- how often CDP packets are transmitted to all active interfaces (default 60 seconds) -- "config t", "cdp timer 90". - CDP holdtime -- how long to hold packets received from neighbor devices (default 180 seconds) -- "config t", "cdp holdtime 240". - "sh cdp nei" (or "show cdp neighbor") shows CDP information ONLY about directly connected devices. "sh cdp neighbor detail" = "sh cdp entry *" BOTH display extended information ("sh cdp entry *" does NOT work on a 1900 switch). CCNA4.com
  2. 2. CCNA4.com - "sh cdp traffic" shows CDP traffic summary. "sh cdp interface" shows interface CDP information. - CDP is enabled by default. Disable globally -- "no cdp run". To disable per interface -- "config t", "int s0", "no cdp enable". - "telnet" = "" -- "telnet" can be skipped, it is assumed. - Connect via telnet to several routers simultaneously -- "telnet", "Ctrl-Shift-6 then x" (suspend), "telnet". - "sh sessions" shows telnet connections from your router to another device. "sh users" shows telnet sessions in your router. - "disconnect " disconnects a session. "clear line " disconnects a telnet session in your router. - Use a host table to resolve addresses -- "config t", "ip host myrouter". Then you can telnet via "telnet myrouter", or just "myrouter". Remove with "no ip host myrouter". - Using a DNS server for name resolution -- "config t", "ip domain-lookup", "ip name-server", "ip domain-name mydomain.com". - "sh hosts" displays the host table, or DNS information, if set up. - "ping" and "traceroute" can be used from user mode and enable mode, but not from config mode. - If you try to run traceroute with IPX or AppleTalk, you will get an error.
