Default user name and password of the CX91x
The default user name and password of the BMC and onboard Ethernet switching plane of the CX91x are as follows: Default user name: root Default password: Huawei12#$ In some cases (such as serial port login and BIOS login), you only need to enter the password but do not need to enter the user name. The default user name and password of the FC switching plane (available only for CX911 and CX912) are as follows: Default user name: admin Default password: Huawei12#$

Configuring an Ethernet subinterface on the firewall
Configure the Layer 3 Ethernet subinterface as follows: 1. Run the system-view command to access the system view. 2. Run the interface interface-type interface-number.subinterface-number command to access the Ethernet subinterface view. 3. Run the ip address ip-address { mask | mask-length } [ sub ] command to configure the IP address of the Ethernet subinterface. 4. Run the vlan-type dot1q vlan-id command to configure the encapsulation type for the Ethernet subinterface and associate a VLAN ID with the subinterface. Configure the Layer 2 Ethernet subinterface as follows: 1. Run the system-view command to access the system view. 2. Run the interface interface-type interface-number command to enter the interface view. 3. Run the portswitch command to configure a Layer 3 Ethernet interface to work in Layer 2 mode. 4. Run the quit command to return to the system view. 5. Run the interface interface-type interface-number.subinterface-number command to create a subinterface and access the subinterface view. 6. Run the vlan-type dot1q vlan-id command to configure the encapsulation type for the subinterface and associate a VLAN ID with the subinterface. 7. Run the portswitch command to configure the subinterface as a Layer 2 subinterface.

Powering off an E9000
Power off an E9000 as follows: 1. Power off the blades or switch modules in an E9000 chassis using the MM910 Web interface. For details, see http://support.huawei.com/ehedex/pages/DOC1000053358YEF0907R/08/DOC1000053358YEF0907R/08/resources/en/osca/smma_help_r2/it_osca_smma_900020.html. 2. Disconnect the E9000 power cable from the mains supply.
