Safety Cautions
To greatly reduce the risk of physical injury, electrical shock, fire, and damage to equipment, observe the following
precautions.
Observe and follow service markings.
• Do not attempt to service any product, except when it is explained in the system’s documentation.
• Opening or removing covers that are marked with this (
) symbol may expose the user to electrical shock.
• Only a trained service technician should service components inside these compartments.
If any of the following conditions occur, unplug the product from the electrical outlet immediately and replace the part or
contact your trained service provider:
• Damage to the power cable, extension cable, or plug.
• An object has fallen into the product.
• The product has been exposed to water.
• The product has been dropped or damaged.
• The product does not operate correctly when the operating instructions are correctly followed.
General safety cautions:
• Keep the system away from radiators and heat sources. Also, do not block cooling vents.
• Do not spill food or liquids on system components, and never operate the product in a wet environment. If the
system gets wet contact your trained service provider.
• Do not push any objects into the openings of the system. Doing so can cause fire or electric shock by shorting out
interior components.
• Only use this product with approved equipment.
• Allow the product to cool before removing the cover or touching internal components.
• Operate the product only from the type of external power source indicated on the electrical ratings label. If unsure of
the type of power source required, consult your service provider or local power company.
• Be sure that attached devices are electrically rated to operate with the power available in your location.
• Use only approved power cable(s). If you have not been provided with a power cable for your system or for any ACpowered option intended for your system, purchase a power cable that is approved for use in your country. The
power cable must be rated for the product and for the voltage and current marked on the product's electrical ratings
label. The voltage and current rating of the cable should be greater than the ratings marked on the product.
• To help prevent electric shock, plug the system and peripheral power cables into properly grounded electrical
outlets. These cables are equipped with three-prong plugs to help ensure proper grounding. Do not use adapter
plugs or remove the grounding prong from a cable. If using an extension cable is necessary, use a 3-wire cable with
properly grounded plugs.
• Observe the extension cable and power strip ratings. Make sure that the total ampere rating of all products plugged
into the extension cable or power strip does not exceed 80 percent of the ampere ratings limit for the extension
cable or power strip.
• To help protect the system from sudden, transient increases and decreases in electrical power, use a surge
suppressor, line conditioner, or uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
• Position system cables and power cables carefully. Route cables so that they cannot be stepped on or tripped over.
Be sure that nothing rests on any cables.
• Do not modify power cables or plugs. Consult a licensed electrician or your power company for site modifications.
Always follow your local or national wiring rules.
When connecting or disconnecting power to and from hot-pluggable power supplies, observe the following guidelines:
• Install the power supply before connecting the power cable to the power supply.
• Unplug the power cable before removing the power supply.
• If the system has multiple sources of power, disconnect power from the system by unplugging all power cables from
the power supplies.
• Move products with care and ensure that all casters and stabilizers are firmly connected to the system. Avoid
sudden stops and uneven surfaces.
To help avoid damage to the system, be sure that the voltage selection switch, on the power supply, is set to match the
power available at the switch’s location:

General Precautions for Rack-Mountable Products
Please pay careful attention to the following precautions concerning rack stability and safety. Systems are considered
to be components in a rack. Thus, a component refers to any system, as well as to various peripherals or supporting
hardware.
CAUTION: Installing systems in a rack without the front and side stabilizers installed could cause the
rack to tip over, potentially resulting in serious injury. After installing system/components in a rack,
never pull more than one component out of the rack on its slide assemblies at one time. The weight
of more than one extended component could cause the rack to tip over and may result in serious
injury.
• Before working on the rack, make sure that the stabilizers are secured to the rack, extended to the floor, and that the
full weight of the rack rests on the floor. Install front and side stabilizers on a single rack or front stabilizers for joined
multiple racks before working on the rack.
• Always load the rack from the bottom up, and load the heaviest item in the rack first.
• Make sure that the rack is level and stable before extending a component from the rack.
• Use caution when pressing the component rail release latches and sliding a component into or out of a rack; the
slide rails can pinch your fingers.
• After a component is inserted into the rack, carefully extend the rail into a locking position, and then slide the
component into the rack.
• Do not overload the AC supply branch circuit that provides power to the rack. The total rack load should not exceed
80 percent of the branch circuit rating.
• Ensure that proper airflow is provided to components in the rack.
• Do not step on or stand on any component when servicing other components in a rack.
CAUTION: Never defeat the ground conductor or operate the equipment in the absence of a suitably
installed ground conductor. Contact the appropriate electrical inspection authority or an electrician if
uncertain that suitable grounding is available.
CAUTION: The system chassis must be positively grounded to the rack cabinet frame. Do not
attempt to connect power to the system until grounding cables are connected. Completed power and
safety ground wiring must be inspected by a qualified electrical inspector. An energy hazard will exist
if the safety ground cable is omitted or disconnected.
Protecting Against Electrostatic Discharge
Static electricity can harm delicate components inside the system. To prevent static damage, discharge static electricity
from your body before touching any of the electronic components, such as the microprocessor. This can be done by
periodically touching an unpainted metal surface on the chassis.
The following steps can also be taken prevent damage from electrostatic discharge (ESD):
• When unpacking a static-sensitive component from its shipping carton, do not remove the component from the
antistatic packing material until ready to install the component in the system. Just before unwrapping the antistatic
packaging, be sure to discharge static electricity from your body.
• When transporting a sensitive component, first place it in an antistatic container or packaging.
• Handle all sensitive components in a static-safe area. If possible, use antistatic floor pads, workbench pads and an
antistatic grounding strap.

Switch Description
The DXS-3600 Series switch is a switch designed to meet the needs and requirements Data Center networks that
require Top-of-Rack access switches and Enterprise/Campus aggregation switches, where low latency and high
bandwidth capacity is essential. The switch is a fully managed Layer 2, for Standard Image (SI) mode, and Layer 3, for
Enhanced Image (EI) mode, switch. With support for IPv4 static and dynamic routing and a plethora of advanced
security and enhanced QoS features, the switch future proofs your network and provides a seamless migration path to
IPv6.
The DXS-3600 Series, running in the Enhanced Image (EI) mode, is a high-performance Layer 3 switch that provides
advanced Layer 3 routing features such as RIP, OSPF, BGP4, VRRP, up to 5 IP addresses per VLAN, and floating
static routes. Multipath routing (which is the method of establishing multiple paths between given source-destination
nodes within a network) are also features supported on the switch. These added routing features provide redundancy,
load balancing, and improved network utilization for the network.
The DXS-3600 Series incorporates an advanced portfolio of security features designed to protect your network from
malicious attacks. SSH encrypted management guarantee secure private configuration and monitoring when using the
Graphical User Interface (GUI) and Command Line (CLI). IEEE 802.1X ports and MAC-based authentication help
provide added network security by requiring all users attempting to connect to your network to provide a username and
password. This username and password must then be authenticated on a RADIUS or TACACS+ server, ensuring only
authorized users have access to the network. Access Control Lists (ACL) based on Layers 2/3/4, Rate Limiting, and
Guest VLANs provide even more control over what and how users access the network.
The DXS-3600 Series facilitates the deployment of enterprise applications such as VoIP, streaming media, and
multicast content delivery such as IP video conferencing and software deployment with enhanced enterprise features
such as L2/L3/L4 QoS, IGMP and MLD snooping, 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree, 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree group,
802.3ad Link Aggregation, and 802.1Q VLANs.
In the DXS-3600 Series the following switches exist:
• DXS-3600-16S - which includes eight 10 Gigabit SFP+ ports and one open expansion module slot.
• DXS-3600-32S - which includes twenty-four 10 Gigabit SFP+ ports and one open expansion module slot.

Switch to an End Node
End node is a generic name for edge networking devices that will be connected to this switch. Typical examples of end
nodes are Personal Computers (PCs), Notebooks, Access Points, Print Servers, VoIP Phones and more. Each end
node will be outfitted with a 10/100/1000Mbps, RJ-45, networking port. Normally end nodes will connect to this switch
by using a standard twisted-pair, UTP/STP, network cable. After a successful connection, the corresponding Link/Act
light will illuminate and blink to indicate that packet activity is taking place on that port.
The diagram below display a typical end node connected to the Switch.
Figure 3-1 Connecting the Switch to an end node
Switch to another Switch
Another popular configuration is to connect this switch to another switch or hub. This network typography is considered
when one Switch does not have enough ports to cater for all the end nodes in the network. There is a great deal of
flexibility in the type of cabling that can be used to interlink switches. The copper ports support cables like Categories 3,
4, 5, and 5e running on standards like 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, and 1000BASE-T.
Two or more switches can also be interlinked using fiber-optic cables or direct-attached cables via the switch’s SFP,
SFP+, and WDM ports. Lastly two or more switches can also be interlinked using QSFP+ interfaces supported by the
DXS-3600-EM-4QXS optional modules.

Netscape (version 7.0 and later).
Connecting to the Console Port
The front panel of the switch provides a console port that enables a connection to a computer monitoring and
configuring the switch. The console port is an RJ-45 port and requires a special cable that is included with the switch,
to establish the physical connection.
To use the console port, the following equipment is needed:
• A terminal or a computer with both an RS-232 serial port and the ability to emulate a terminal.
• A console cable with a male DB-9 connector on one end and an RJ-45 connection on the other. This cable should
be included with the switch. It establishes the physical connection to the console port.
Using a terminal to connect to the console port:
Connect the male DB-9 connector on the console cable (shipped with the switch) to the RS-232 serial port on the
computer running terminal emulation software then insert the RJ-45 connector into the RJ-45 console port on the front
of the switch.

Figure 4-4 The Switch’s Login Screen
By default, there is no Username and Password configured in the account settings of this switch. This will allow the
user to simply connect to this Switch for the first time by pressing the ‘Enter’ key. After pressing Enter, access will be
given to enter commands after the command prompt (DXS-3600>) appears.
NOTE: The first user automatically gets Administrator level privileges. At least one Administratorlevel user account must be created for the switch.
Creating a User Account
As you will have noticed by now is that this switch does not have a default username and password. One of the first
and most important tasks will be to create user accounts. Logging in using a predefined administrator-level username
will give the user privileged access to the Switch's management software. Also this will prevent unauthorized access to
the switch, and record the passwords for future reference.
An example to create an administrator-level account for the Switch called ‘NewUser’:

Connecting using SNMP
The switch can be managed with an SNMP-compatible console program. The Simple Network Management Protocol
(SNMP) operates on the Application Layer of the OSI model and is designed specifically for managing and monitoring
network devices. The SNMP agent decodes the incoming SNMP messages and responds to requests with MIB objects
stored in the database. The SNMP agent updates the MIB objects to generate statistics and counters.
D-Link provides a professional network management software package, called D-View 6.0 that uses SNMP to connect,
configure, manage and monitor this switch. The D-View® 6.0 SNMP Network Management System is a software tool
that facilitates the central administration of a network with various SNMP-enabled devices.
Figure 4-8 D-Link’s D-View SNMP Software
19
DXS-3600 Series 10GbE Layer 2/3 Switch Hardware Installation Guide
NOTE: For customers interested in D-View, D-Link Corporation's proprietary SNMP management
software, go to http://dview.dlink.com.tw/ and download the software and manual.
Managed devices that support SNMP include software (referred to as an agent), which runs locally on the device. A
defined set of variables (managed objects) is maintained by the SNMP agent and used to manage the device. These
objects are defined in a Management Information Base (MIB), which provides a standard presentation of the
information controlled by the on-board SNMP agent. SNMP defines both the format of the MIB specifications and the
protocol used to access this information over the network.
This switch supports SNMP Versions 1, 2c, and 3 alternatively known as SNMPv1, SNMPv2c and SNMPv3. The
administrator may specify which version of SNMP to use to monitor and control the switch. The three versions of
SNMP vary in the level of security provided between the management station and the network device.
In SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c, user authentication is accomplished using 'community strings', which function like
passwords. The remote user SNMP application and the Switch’s SNMP must use the same community string. SNMP
packets from any station that has not been authenticated are ignored (dropped).
The default community strings for the Switch used for SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c are:
• public - Allows authorized management stations to retrieve MIB objects.
• private - Allows authorized management stations to retrieve and modify MIB objects.

SNMPv3 uses a more sophisticated authentication process that is separated into two parts.
1 The first part is to maintain a list of users and their attributes that are allowed to act as SNMP managers.
2 The second part describes what each user on that list can do as an SNMP manager.
The switch allows groups of users to be created and configured with a shared set of privileges. The SNMP version may
also be configured for a specific group of SNMP managers. A group of SNMP managers can be created to view readonly information or to receive traps using SNMPv1 while assigning a higher level of security to another group, granting
read/write privileges using SNMPv3.
Using SNMPv3, individual users or groups of SNMP managers can be allowed to perform or be restricted from
performing specific SNMP management functions. The functions allowed or restricted are defined using the Object
Identifier (OID) associated with a specific MIB. An additional layer of security is available for SNMPv3 in which SNMP
messages may be encrypted.
Traps
Traps are messages that alert network personnel of events that occur on the switch. The events can be as serious as a
reboot (someone accidentally turned OFF the switch), or less serious like a port status change. The switch generates
20
DXS-3600 Series 10GbE Layer 2/3 Switch Hardware Installation Guide
traps and sends them to the trap recipient (or network manager). Typical traps include trap messages for
Authentication Failure, and Topology Change.
Management Information Base (MIB)
The Management Information Base (MIB) stores management and counter information. The switch uses the standard
MIB-II Management Information Base module. Consequently, values for MIB objects can be retrieved from any SNMPbased network management software. In addition to the standard MIB-II, the Switch also supports its own proprietary
enterprise MIB as an extended Management Information Base. The proprietary MIB may also be retrieved by
specifying the MIB Object Identifier. MIB values can be either read-only or read-write.
Connecting using the Web User Interface
All software functions of the switch can be managed, configured, and monitored via the embedded Web-based (HTML)
interface. This can be done from any remote station on the network through a standard web browser, such as Internet
Explorer (version 6.0 and later), Mozilla Firefox (version 3.0 and later), Safari (version 4.0 and later), Google Chrome
(version 5.0 and later), Opera (version 9.0 and later), or Netscape (version 7.0 and later). The browser acts as a
universal access tool and can communicate directly with the switch using the HTTP protocol.
All the software features that can be configured using the Command Line Interface can also be configured using the
Web User Interface. The Web User Interface is thus an alternative configuration method for the lesser analytical users.
Logging onto the Web Manager
To access the Web User Interface the user simply runs the standard web browser and enter the Switch’s IP address
into the address bar of the browser and press the ‘Enter’ key.
