Attempting an initial installation of the VadaTech Commercial MCH card for the uTCA crate.


  1. Install the VadaTech module in the MCH2
  2. Initial attempt at IPbus-based communication with the uTCA crate results in successful pinging and control of the AMC13 in MCH1 and also the AMC13 in a non-MCH slot, but unsuccessful pinging of mCTR2s
  3. Relevant Documents are...
  4. 10/100 Ethernet has the default IP address, which conflicts with our IP assignment scheme for the AMC13s.
  5. According to the 'Getting Started Guide', the default IP address of the GbE is Unsuccessful ping to this address.
  6. Run Eric's pinger.py to see what I can talk to. Within the range, I can only see the AMC13s. This was to check and make sure the VadaTech MCH card didn't magically take on the same IP address as the NAT MCH card
  7. Despite my not being able to ping the GbE, I am going to try and connect anyway, as the documentation suggests.
          [cms2] /home/chill90 > ssh root@
          ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection timed out
          [cms2] /home/chill90 > ssh
          ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection timed out
    Not surprisingly, no luck here. I get similar results if I try and access the IP address via a web browser
  8. Next try connecting via the 10/100 Ethernet Port at This pings successfully!
  9. Eric has now take over.
  10. TelNet into the card successfully.
    • > telnet
    • Username: root
    • Password: root
  11. The HUB card will be running Linux. The command-line interface is based on the IPMI v2.0. The procedure to reassign the IP addresses of the ethernet ports is as follows
    1. Open the file /etc/rc.d/rc.conf for editing
    2. net interface 0 is the 10/100 Ethernet port. Edit IPADDR0 and/or NETMASK0 and/or BROADCAST0 as desired
    3. net interface 1 is the GbE port. Edit IPADDR1 and/or NETMASK1 and/or BROADCAST1 as desired
    4. Only one of either GATEWAY0 or GATEWAY1 should be set!! The MCH will use the device with the set 'GATEWAY' value to send traffic to other subnets and networks
    5. Power cycle the MCH for the changes to take effect
