I thought I would share some of the more useful CLI commands that be found in the Nortel Succession 4.5 Signaling Server. You can access the CLI interface by TELNETing into the Signaling Server. You can also issue may of these commands from Element Manager, the web based GUI.
isetShow – display all IP phones connected (registered) to this signaling server.
electShow – display all registered and unregistered components.
vtrkShow – display the virtual trunk status and available channels
umsPolicyShow – display the available firmware for each phone model
While I won’t go into every single command I will highlight a few additional commands;
ping – very useful for troubleshooting basic connectivity
routeShow – display the routing table including ELAN and TLAN
In a future post I hope to cover the remote iset diagnostic commands that are available for the IP phones.
