InfiniBand Blade Switch I/O Module for PowerEdge M-Series
1
Rev 1.2
Overview
The SwitchX® InfiniBand blade switch I/O module for the PowerEdge M-Series chassis provides
a high bandwidth, low latency fabric for Enterprise Data Centers (EDC), High-Performance Computing (HPC), and Embedded environments. Based on the 5th generation InfiniBand switch device
(1st Generation SwitchX). This I/O module (IOM) delivers up to 56Gb/s at FDR speed and 
40 Gb/s at FDR10 and QDR speed full bisectional bandwidth per port. When used in conjunction
with ConnectX®-3 InfiniBand dual port Mezzanine I/O cards, clustered data bases, parallelized
applications and transactional services applications these switches will achieve significant performance improvements resulting in reduced completion time and lower cost per operation.
The I/O module comes pre-installed with all necessary firmware, and configured for standard
operation within an InfiniBand fabric, and only requires an InfiniBand compliant Subnet Manager
running from one of the hosts. All that is required for normal operation is to follow the usual precautions for installation and connection from the switch to the HCAs or other switches. Once connected, the Subnet Management software automatically configures the switch and begins utilizing
the switch.
It is recommended that Mellanox OpenFabrics software package be installed on all nodes connected to the M4001[F, T, Q]. The software package provides a subnet manager and network management tools as well as connectivity software for servers and storage, and is available on the
Mellanox web site. See Chapter 3 for more information.
Basic installation, hot-swapping components and hardware maintenance is covered in “Installation
and Basic Operation” on page 11.
The M4001F, M4001T, and M4001Q switches have a Hot Swap controller and a PSOC Management IC.

InfiniBand Connectors
This switch has 16 QSFP connectors through the front panel. The remaining 16 interfaces are
through the Midplane Connector out of the back of the switch. Figure 1 shows the front 16 ports.
Each of the InfiniBand ports has two LEDs located between the connectors and the I2C interface.
The green LED, when lit, indicates that a valid physical connection to the other system (switch or
HCA port) exists. See Figure 2,“Physical and Logical Link Indication LEDs” for more details.

I2C Interface RJ-45 Connector
There is an “I2C”interface on the front panel.
Figure 4: I2C RJ-45 Interface
The I2C connection provides access to Flash and EEPROMs. The I2C connector is used to update
firmware should in-band firmware update not work. You will need to order an RJ-45 to DB9 I2C
adapter to make use of the I2C interface. You can order this adapter from Mellanox Technologies.
The Ordering Part Number is MTUSB-1.
All firmware updates should be done in-band using Mellanox Firmware Management
Tools. This is for Advanced users and FAEs only.
These switches are Plug and Play and all firmware updates should be done in-band. The I2C connection should only be used if the FW image was corrupted to the point that the regular FW tools
cannot successfully reburn the correct image.

Installation and Basic Operation
Installation and initialization of the I/O module are straightforward processes, requiring attention
to the normal mechanical, power, and thermal precautions for rack-mounted equipment. The I/O
module does not require any programming or configuration to operate as a basic InfiniBand switch
and includes all of the necessary functionality to operate with external standard InfiniBand Subnet
Management software.
This section describes the installation process and basic operation of the I/O module. Please first
read the warnings sub-section carefully before carrying on with installation procedures.
Suitable electrical, mechanical and fire enclosure shall be provided by the end user.
2.1
Installation Safety Warnings
1. Installation Instructions
Read all installation instructions before connecting the equipment to the power source.
2. Over-temperature
This equipment should not be operated in an area with an ambient temperature exceeding the maximum recommended: 40°C (104°F). Moreover, to guarantee proper air
flow, allow at least 8cm (3 inches) of clearance around the ventilation openings.
3. Stacking the Chassis
The chassis should not be stacked on any other equipment. If the chassis falls, it can
cause bodily injury and equipment damage.
4. During Lightning - Electrical Hazard
During periods of lightning activity, do not work on the equipment or connect or disconnect cables.

attached to or detached from the connectors. Support the cable’s weight using the rack
and a cable management system. Refer to the cable manufacturer for special warnings
and instructions.
6. Rack Mounting and Servicing
When this product is mounted or serviced in a rack, special precautions must be taken
to ensure that the system remains stable. In general you should fill the rack with equipment starting from the bottom to the top.
7. Equipment Installation
This equipment should be installed, replaced, or serviced only by trained and qualified
personnel.
8. Equipment Disposal
Disposal of this equipment should be in accordance to all national laws and regulations.
9. Local and National Electrical Codes

Pull the I/O Module Blank out of the chassis using the locking arm.
2.2.3 Installing the Mellanox M4001[F, T, Q] Switch Into the Dell Chassis
Make sure the rack is stable on a solid floor and that the rack is filled from the bottom
up. This will keep the center of gravity as low as possible reducing risk of tipping.
Refer to the Dell PowerEdge M1000e Hardware Owners Manual for more information.

2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Follow the instructions in Section 2.2.1 or Section 2.2.2 to remove an old switch or an I/O
Module Blank.
On the new switch, push the red latch release button.
Pull the lever forward until the lever is perpendicular to the front panel.
Push the switch into the slot until the latching mechanism is against the bar.
Push the lever on the latching mechanism up, making sure that the latching mechanism
catches the locking bar. The lever should now be parallel to the front panel.
Check the indicator lights to make sure the switch has power.
The rack mounting is designed to fit the PowerEdge Chassis. Take precautions to guarantee proper ventilation for air intake at the front of the chassis and exhaust at the rear
in order to maintain good airflow at ambient temperature. Cable routing in particular
should not impede the air exhaust from the chassis.
2.3
Power Connections and Initial Power On
The I/O module will automatically power up when AC power is applied. There is no power switch.
Immediately upon closing the latching mechanism check to make sure that the green switch LED
is lit.
2.4
InfiniBand Cable Installation
All cables can be inserted or removed with the unit powered on. To insert a cable, press the connector into the port receptacle until the connector is firmly seated. The green LED indicator
accompanying each port will light when the physical connection is established (that is, when the
unit is powered on and a cable is plugged into the port with the other end of the connector plugged
into a functioning port). After plugging in a cable, lock the connector using the latching mechanism particular to the cable vendor. The yellow LED will light if the subnet manager is running

(non blinking indicating that no data is being transferred yet). When a logical connection is made
the yellow LED will blink signifying data is being transferred.
Cables in theBelly to Belly right side should be inserted up side down in relation to the
how the cables are inserted in the left side.
Figure 6: Belly to Belly Cable Insertion
To remove, disengage the locks and slowly pull the connector away from the port receptacle. Both
LED indicators will turn off when the cable is unseated.
Care should be taken not to impede the air exhaust flow through the chassis.
Cable lengths should be used which allow for routing horizontally around to the side of
the chassis before bending upward or downward in the rack.
