Perle Systems Technical Note
Administrators for large Enterprises and Service Provider Data Centers require that access to all console ports be from a single view. By defining a master IOLAN, multiple slave IOLANs can be configured to form a single secure IOLAN cluster, presenting a complete view of all ports associated across Master and slave units. There is no need to remember what the IP address is of the console server that is associated with the target console port. This saves the administrator valuable time in order to expedite problem resolution. Access to the IOLAN cluster view can be accomplished through the IOLAN’s EasyPort Web with an internet browser or CLI based EasyPort though a Telnet or SSH application.
