Minimum of 5 inches (12.7 cm) between the side intake and exhaust vents and the cabinet wall.
Rack Mounting
When you prepare your equipment rack, ensure that the rack is earth ground. The equipment rack must be
grounded to the same ground point used by the power service in your area. The ground path must be
permanent.
Fans and Airflow
Ventilation is side-to-side, with six fans on the left side of the switch that operate at a constant speed. For
proper ventilation, position the S25P chassis in an equipment rack (or cabinet) with a minimum of five
inches (12.7 cm) of clearance around the side intake and exhaust vents. When two S25P systems are
installed side by side, position the two S25P chassis at least 5 inches (12.7 cm) apart to permit proper
airflow. The acceptable ambient temperature ranges are listed in Environmental Parameters on page 33.
As listed in Table 4, “Status Panel LED Display,” on page 12, the front panel of the S25P has an Alarm
status LED, which is green when the switch is operating within required temperature parameters and all
components are operating normally, including fans. The LED is amber when the temperature or
components are outside expected parameters, red in a major alarm.
SFTOS logs a temperature warning message when a temperature of 77 degrees C is reached, and logs
another message when the temperature returns to normal. The Command Line Interface (CLI) also reports
an alarm.
Use the show logging command to see the log messages. For details, see the System Logs chapters of the
SFTOS Command Reference and SFTOS Configuration Guide.
In a stack, each unit has its own temperature monitoring and control. Status logging is identified by unit in
the system log.
Fan replacement in the field is not offered as an option.

Site Preparation
Power
The S25P comes standard with two AC power supplies acting in load-sharing mode; see Figure 2 on
page 9. Use the power cords shipped with the S25P to connect it to AC power outlets, ideally on separate
circuits. Several versions of the power cord are available, based on country requirements.
Caution: The power supply cord is used as the main disconnect device; ensure that the socket-outlet is
located/installed near the equipment and is easily accessible.
S25P-DC
As shown below, the right side (as you face the back of the unit) of the S25P-DC contains two terminal
blocks for two DC power supply inputs acting in load-sharing mode. The left terminal block, as you face
the back, corresponds to the DC2 status LED on the front left of the switch; DC1 is on the right.

Storing Components
If you do not install your system and components immediately, Force10 Networks recommends that you
properly store the S25P and all optional components until you are ready to install them. Follow these
storage guidelines:
•
•
•
•
Storage temperature should remain constant, in the range from -40° to 158° F (-40°C to 70° C).
Storage humidity should be within 10 to 90% (relative humidity), non-condensing
Store on a dry surface or floor, away from direct sunlight, heat, and air conditioning ducts.
Store in a dust-free environment.
Installing the S25P System
15
Tools Required
S-Series switches are shipped fully assembled, encased in foam. A utility knife is useful for cutting the
packing tape, and a Philips #2 screwdriver is required for attaching rack screws, and is also used for making
some attachments, including DC cables and rear cover plates.
Warning: Electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage can occur when components are mishandled. Always
wear an ESD-preventive wrist or heel ground strap when handling the S25P and its accessories. After you
remove the original packaging, place the S25P and its components on an antistatic surface.

Warning: As with all electrical devices of this type, take all the necessary safety precautions to prevent
injury when installing this system. Electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage can occur if components are
mishandled. Always wear an ESD-preventive wrist or heel ground strap when handling the S25P and its
components.
Inserting Optional Modules (10-Gigabit or Stacking)
The S25P (catalog name S25-01-GE-24P) has two expansion slots in the back of the chassis, for which
there are four modules available:
Module Description
Catalog Name
2-port 10GbE XFP (optical connection)
S50-01-10GE-2P
2-port 10GbE CX4 (copper connection)
S50-01-10GE-2C
2-port 12GbE Stacking
S50-01-12G-2S
1-port 24GbE Stacking
S50-01-24G-1S
The system supports inserting the modules in any combination of slots (although connecting all four ports
of two 12G stacking modules is not supported, nor is connecting one kind of stack port to anything other
than the same kind of stack port). The ports are numbered 25 through 28, from left to right as you face the
front of the chassis. So, for clarity in the use of the CLI in port assignment, if you are only using one XFP
or CX4 module, insert it in the left-most expansion slot.
Note: The 10G modules cannot be used for stacking. See Connecting Stack Ports (optional) on page 25.
Installing the S25P System
17
To install a module, follow the steps below:
Step
1
Task
If the switch is on, save the running configuration, if desired (and different from the startup configuration) with
the command write memory. Then power down the system by unplugging it from its power source.
Caution: Removing a module from a running system will lock up the switch, requiring a power
cycle.
2
Use a #2 Phillips screwdriver to remove either a module faceplate or an existing module. Note that these slots,
when used for 10G Ethernet ports, are assigned port numbers from left to right as you face the front of the
switch. So, for clarity in programming ports, you might favor using the left-most slot for the first 10G module.
3
Grasping the module faceplate, remove the module from its packaging and slide it into the slot until the module
faceplate is flush with the switch.
Figure 5 Inserting Rear Module
fn00144s25P
4
Secure the captive screws on either side of the module.
5
The optical XFP 10-Gigabit module (catalog name S50-01-10GE-2P) requires additional XFP transceiver
inserts, which are not included in the module kit (see Installing XFPs on page 32) or the installation instructions
that come with the transceiver). The CX4 module (catalog name S50-01-10GE-2C) ports do not require inserts.
Caution: You can connect a CX4 cable to an XFP port through a CX4 XFP converter (catalog
number GP- XFP-1CX4) in the slot. However, an XFP port does not support the use of the
cx4-cable-length command, discussed next.
If you are installing a CX4 module, and you are connecting the ports with a cable substantially shorter or longer
than 5m, use the cx4-cable-length command to set the signal strength. Use cx4-cable-length long for a
longer cable, cx4-cable-length short for a shorter cable. For details, see the Command Reference for your
software.
Note: Take care not to connect CX4 ports to 12G stack ports in the switch. The receptacles and cables
are the same, but they are incompatible. CX4 ports are labeled as such; stack ports are not labeled.
You can order several cable lengths of each type; they are not part of the module kit. For details, see
Using CX4 Cables (CX4 Cable Matrix) in the S-Series tech tips on iSupport:
https://www.force10networks.com/CSPortal20/KnowledgeBase/ToolTipsSSeries.aspx
For details on enabling ports, see the Configuration Guide for your software.
18
Installing the S25P
Installing the Switch on a Tabletop
The S25P can be positioned on a stable tabletop. Four rubber standoffs are provided for that purpose in the
plastic bag in the switch shipping box. Keep the following in mind when using a tabletop for your S25P:
•
•
Ensure that your tabletop is stable and can handle the weight of the S25P or a stack of switches, if that
is the case, along with any added external power supplies.
Position the table for proper ventilation and easy access to separate power outlets for each device.
Installing the Switch in a Rack or Cabinet
The S25P provides three rack-mounting methods:
•
•
•
Two-Post Rack Mounting
Four-Post Rack-mounting with Threaded Rails
Four-Post Rack-mounting with Cage Nuts
Two-Post Rack Mounting
The S25P is shipped with the universal front-mounting brackets (rack ears) attached. Ensure that there is
adequate clearance surrounding the rack to permit access and airflow. If you are installing two S25P
switches side-by-side, position the two chassis at least 5 inches (12.7 cm) apart to permit proper airflow.
Position the chassis in the rack. Secure the chassis with two of the supplied screws through each bracket
and onto the rack post.

Stacking
You can add units to a stack, remove them, renumber them, or move them in the stack. The units can
continue running in the stack as you add new units, but new units should be powered down during the
connection.
All units in a stack must run the same version of FTOS. If you attempt to attach a unit with a different
FTOS version to an existing stack, the CLI will display an error, and the unit will not be added until you
install identical software.
The order in which the units come on-line or are added to or removed from the stack can affect how the
stack identifies them, and how the units identify themselves, influencing unit numbers, stack management
assignment, and other elements of the configuration file.
How units are identified within the stack is determined by the identification algorithm. The algorithm has
the units self-identify as Unit 1 through Unit [last] based on the order in which they come online. So, when
setting up a new stack, you should have no trouble forcing the identification of the management unit and
unit IDs by methodically supplying power to the units in your preferred sequence.
Similarly, when you add a brand new unit to the stack, the unit will be gracefully added as Unit [last] (the
lowest unused number) with the current configuration.
If you have a pre-configured unit to add to the stack, but you want to make sure that the configuration does
not override the configuration of the stack, it is best to add the unit while it is powered down, in order to
avoid stack management conflicts.
Using SFTOS Stacking Commands
If the switch is running SFTOS, the commands available to manage stacking are described in the Stacking
chapters of the SFTOS Command Reference and the SFTOS Configuration Guide.
You can execute clear config on the switch to start a clean configuration. Then pre-configure it, as
recommended in Best Practices in the Stacking chapter of the SFTOS Configuration Guide.
You can use the SFTOS CLI to make stack identification changes on the fly:
•
•
•
Renumber units: switch renumber
Assign a new management unit: movemanagement
Remove a unit from stack membership: no member
You can also use commands such as switch priority and member that override the default unit
identification algorithms.
Use the show switch command to see the current assignment of the management unit.
Use the show switch unit command to see the serial number of the designated unit.
For details on and other stacking commands, see the Stacking chapter in the SFTOS Configuration Guide
and the Stacking Commands chapter in the SFTOS Command Reference.
24
Installing the S25P
Using FTOS Stacking Commands
While the S-Series hardware has built-in stacking controls, you can use FTOS to manage stacking, such as
assign unit IDs, influence the management unit (master unit) selection algorithm, pre-configure a unit to be
added to a stack, etc. The following commands provide a sample of that functionality:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Use the stack-unit unit priority 1-14 command to configure the ability of an S-Series switch to
become the management unit of a stack.
Use the stack-unit unit provision {S25N|S25P|S25V|S50N|S50V} command on the management
unit to pre-configure a stacking ID of a switch that will join the stack.
Use the stack-unit unit renumber unit command to renumber a standalone S-Series or any stack
member.
Use the show system brief command to see the current assignment of the management unit.
Use the show system stack-unit unit command to see the serial number of the designated unit and
other system details.
Use the show system stack-ports command to see the stacking topology and status.
For details on using FTOS to remove a unit from a stack or use other stacking commands, see the Stacking
Commands chapter in the FTOS Command Reference and the S-Series Stacking chapter in the FTOS
Configuration Guide.
Connecting Stack Ports (optional)
The S25P contains two expansion slots in the rear, in either of which you can insert stacking modules for
converting the switch into a virtual slot in a single virtual switch, comprised of any S-Series model running
the same software. The S25P system includes two optional choices in stacking modules — a single-port
24G module and a two-port (12G each) module. You cannot interconnect the two types. If you use
single-port 24G modules, you can insert one in each expansion slot to accomplish the ring topology (see
Figure 15).
You can connect the S-Series while they are powered down or up. You can use either a ring topology or
cascade topology connection (see Figure 14). Use the special stacking cables to connect them.
Force10 recommends that you mount the switches before you make your stack port connections.

(Figure 17 on page 27) ring topologies.
Figure 15 shows the use of 24G stacking ports in each of the two rear modules to create a ring. Of course,
this topology does not allow the use of the rear modules for XFP ports. A cascade topology, removing the
stack port modules in the B slots of switches 1 and 2, would free those slots for use by XFP modules.

Connecting Two Switches
Insert one end of the special stacking cable into a stack port, and insert the other end into a stack port of the
adjacent switch. Optionally, insert a second cable into the other open stack port, as shown in Figure 14.
The second cable provides both backup connectivity and increased data transfer between the units.

Installing the S25P
Connecting Three Switches
Force10 recommends the ring topology, as outlined above (Figure 14 on page 25), for stacking S-Series
switches, providing redundant connectivity. Using the example of three switches in the stack (Figure 16):
1
Starting with the switch at the bottom of the stack, insert one end of the first cable into Stack Port A.

Insert the other end of the first cable into Stack Port A of the middle switch.
Insert the second cable into Stack Port B of the middle and top switches.
Connect the remaining cable to the top and bottom switches by inserting one end of the cable into the
open Stack Port B of the bottom switch and the other end of the cable into Stack Port A of the top
switch.

Supplying Power
Supply power to the units in a stack only after they are mounted and the stack ports are connected. There is
no on/off switch, and the stack members partly determine the stack management unit from the order in
which they come online (see below).
Danger: To prevent electrical shock, make sure the switch is grounded properly. If you do not ground
your equipment correctly, excessive emissions can result. Use a qualified electrician to ensure that the
power cables meet your local electrical requirements. See other relevant cautions in Information Symbols
and Warnings on page 5.
The S25P switch has two AC receptacles in the rear of the chassis (see Figure 2 on page 9). The system can
use either power source independently, or act in load-sharing mode. Failover is hitless.
Installing the S25P System
27
Connect the supplied AC power cord first to either receptacle of the S25P (on the right as you face the rear
of the chassis) and then to the power source (see Power Requirements on page 34). Ensure that the cord is
secure. If you connect both AC power supplies, ideally you would connect them to separate circuits.
S25P-DC
As shown below (see also Figure 4 on page 15), the S25P-DC (cat. name S25-01-GE-24P-DC) has two DC
terminal blocks on the left side (as you face the front of the switch). The terminal block on the left
corresponds to the DC1 status LED on the front left of the switch; DC2 is on the right.
You must provide your own cables to connect to the power source. Cables must be sized for 11.5 A service
at -48VDC input (per NEC in the United States. Internationally, follow local safety codes.) Before you
make the cable connections, apply a coat of antioxidant paste to unplated metal contact surfaces. File
unplated connectors, braided straps, and bus bars to a shiny finish.
1
Make sure that the remote power source (the circuit breaker panel) is in the OFF position.
2
3
Remove the safety cover from the DC terminal block.
Connect the grounding cable to the FG terminal first, then connect the opposite end to the appropriate
grounding point at your site to ensure an adequate chassis ground.
Connect the -48 V and -48 V RTN (Return) cables to the switch terminals and then to the remote
power sources, ideally on separate circuit breakers.
Replace the safety covers on the DC terminal blocks.
If you are connecting both terminal blocks, do not supply power until both terminal blocks are
connected. You can supply power to either one or both. The S25P-DC uses the power supplies in
load-sharing mode and does not set a precedence for either power source. Failover is hitless.

Install the RJ-45 copper cable that is shipped with the S25P system into the console port.
Caution: You must install a straight-through RJ-45 copper cable (a standard Ethernet cable) into the
console port. This is different from many other implementations that require an Ethernet crossover
cable (or rollover cable). If connecting to a terminal server and using a crossover cable, daisychain
another crossover cable to effectively get a straight-through cable connection. Many console terminal
servers use octopus cables that are crossover cables. To accommodate the octopus cable, connect an
additional crossover cable, as above, to effectively install a straight-through cable.

29
Step
Task (Continued)
2
If necessary, connect the RJ-45/DB-9 adapter that is shipped with the S25P system to the end of the RJ-45 cable
that will connect to your terminal.
3
Verify your terminal default settings match the default settings, as listed above, on the console port:
4
If you use the console port to download software to the switch, you will probably want to raise the console baud
rate. Establish a connection with the default settings to verify the connection. Then use the lineconfig
command to access the Line Config mode, and use the serial baudrate command to raise the baud rate on
the console port. (Match the settings in your terminal access program.)
If your system is running SFTOS, see the Getting Started chapter of the SFTOS Configuration Guide for
other console port details, such as setting the console timeout.
Installing Optics
This section contains two subsections:
•
•
Installing SFPs on page 31
Installing XFPs on page 32
The S25N and S25V each have four receptacles at the right end of their faceplates that accommodate
10/100/1000 SFP optical transceivers.
On the back of the switches, there are two bays that accept either stacking modules or 10GbE modules
(CX4 or XFP). A 10GbE module contains two ports. 10GbE modules should only be inserted or removed
when the switch is powered down, as detailed in Inserting Optional Modules (10-Gigabit or Stacking) on
page 19 in Chapter 3, Installing the Switch.
SFP and XFP transceivers can be inserted or removed while the switch is running.
Caution: Before connecting a transceiver to a source, check the receive power of the transceiver with an
optical power meter. Generally, Force10 specified optics are not to be subjected to receive power higher
than that stipulated by the optic specification. If the optic is exposed to optical power in excess of the
specification, there is a high likelihood that it will be damaged.
Optical specifications for Force10 branded devices are at the following URL:
http://www.force10networks.com/products/mediaspecifications.asp
Force10 Networks offers various types of SFP and XFP transceivers. For details, see:

Installing Ports
Installing SFPs
Note: Starting with FTOS 7.8.1.0, when a copper SFP2 module with catalog number GP-SFP2-1T is used
in the S25P switch, the SFP speed can be manually set with the speed command. When the speed is set to
10 or 100 Mbps, the duplex command can also be executed.
To install an SFP transceiver into an open optical port at the right front of the switch, use the follow steps:
Warning: Electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage can occur if components are mishandled. Always wear
an ESD-preventive wrist or heel ground strap when handling the S25P and its components.
Step
Task
1
Position the SFP so it is in the upright position. (The SFP has a key that prevents it from being inserted
incorrectly.)

Caution: You can insert and connect SFP and XFP transceivers while the switch is operating. You can also
disconnect and remove the transceivers while the switch is operating. However, inserting or removing the
XFP module is not supported; it can crash or lock up the switch, requiring a reboot.
Note: The CX4 module does not use transceivers. However, you can use a CX4 cable with an XFP port by
inserting a CX4 XFP converter (catalog name GP- XFP-1CX4) into the slot. An XFP port does not support
the use of the cx4-cable-length command. For details, see Inserting Optional Modules (10-Gigabit or
Stacking) on page 17 in Chapter 3, Installing the S25P.
For enabling ports with FTOS, see the FTOS Configuration Guide.

S25P Specifications
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive for Recovery,
Recycle and Reuse of IT and Telecommunications Products
Force10 switches are labeled in accordance with European Directive 2002/96/EC concerning waste
electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). The Directive determines the framework for the return and
recycling of used appliances as applicable throughout the European Union. This label, as shown in
Figure 21 on page 37 is applied to various products to indicate that the product is not to be thrown away,
but rather reclaimed upon end of life per this Directive.
Figure 21 The European WEEE symbol
In accordance with the European WEEE Directive, electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) is to be
collected separately and to be reused, recycled, or recovered at end of life. Users of EEE with the WEEE
marking per Annex IV of the WEEE Directive, as shown above, must not dispose of end of life EEE as
unsorted municipal waste, but use the collection framework available to customers for the return, recycling
and recovery of WEEE. Customer participation is important to minimize any potential effects of EEE on
the environment and human health due to the potential presence of hazardous substances in EEE.
Force10 Networks products, which fall within the scope of the WEEE, are labeled with the crossed-out
wheelie-bin symbol, as shown above, as required by WEEE.
For information on Force10 product recycling offerings, see the WEEE Recycling instructions on iSupport
at: https://www.force10networks.com/CSPortal20/Support/WEEEandRecycling.pdf.

Batteries or packaging for batteries are labeled in accordance with European Directive 2006/66/EC
concerning batteries and accumulators and waste batteries and accumulators. The Directive determines the
framework for the return and recycling of used batteries and accumulators as applicable throughout the
European Union. This label is applied to various batteries to indicate that the battery is not to be thrown
away, but rather reclaimed upon end of life per this Directive.
In accordance with the European Directive 2006/66/EC, batteries and accumulators are labeled to indicate
that they are to be collected separately and recycled at end of life. The label on the battery may also include
a chemical symbol for the metal concerned in the battery (Pb for lead, Hg for mercury and Cd for
cadmium). Users of batteries and accumulators must not dispose of batteries and accumulators as unsorted
municipal waste, but use the collection framework available to customers for the return, recycling and
treatment of batteries and accumulators.
