SAFETY INFORMATION
CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS
SINGLE MODE NETWORK EXPANSION MODULES USE CLASS 1 LASER TRANSCEIVERS.
READ THE FOLLOWING SAFETY INFORMATION
BEFORE INSTALLING OR OPERATING THESE MODULES.
The Class 1 laser transceivers use an optical feedback loop to maintain Class 1 operation limits. This control loop eliminates the need for maintenance checks or adjustments. The output is factory set, and does not allow any user adjustment. Class 1 Laser transceivers comply with the following safety standards:
• 21 CFR 1040.10 and 1040.11 U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (FDA).
• IEC Publication 825 (International Electrotechnical Commission).
• CENELEC EN 60825 (European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization).
When operating within their performance limitations, laser transceiver output meets the Class 1 accessible emission limit of all three standards. Class 1 levels of laser radiation are not considered hazardous.
When the connector is in place, all laser radiation remains within the fiber. The maximum amount of radiant power exiting the fiber (under normal conditions) is ‐12.6 dBm or 55 x 10‐6 watts.
Removing the optical connector from the transceiver allows laser radiation to emit directly from the optical port. The maximum radiance from the optical port (under worst case conditions) is 0.8 W cm‐2 or 8 x 103 W m2 sr‐1. Do not use optical instruments to view the laser output. The use of optical instruments to view laser output increases eye hazard. When viewing the output optical port, power must be removed from the network adapter.

Overview
Overview
The A2H124‐24FX is a stackable Fast Ethernet switch, which can be adapted and scaled to help meet your network needs. This switch provides a management platform and uplinks to a network backbone for a stacked group of up to eight A2 switches. The two built‐in Small Form Pluggable (SFP) interface slots provide you with the option of installing Mini‐GBICs. The various versions of hot swappable Mini‐GBICs provide you with the flexibility to install interfaces that support:
•
1000BASE‐T Ethernet over copper connections for 10/100/1000 Mbps
•
1000BASE‐SX/LX/ELX fiber‐optic connections for 1‐Gbps fiber‐optic connections
The switch also supports the use of a redundant DC power supply to help prevent downtime due to an internal power supply failure in the switch or AC power source.
You can install the SecureStack A2 on a flat surface or into a standard 19‐inch rack with user‐supplied mounting hardware, and configure the SecureStack A2 functions using the WebView™ application, CLI switching commands, and/or SNMP.
A2H124-24FX
The A2H124‐24FX (Figure 1‐1) has several types of front panel ports and rear panel connections, which include:
•
Twenty Four 100BASE‐FX multimode MT‐RJ Ports
•
Two SFP slots labeled port 27 and 28 that support
–
optional Mini‐GBIC 1000BASE‐T Ethernet over copper interface connections for 10/100/1000 Mbps operation
–
optional 1000BASE‐SX/LX/ELX fiber‐optic connections
•
Two 1000BASE‐T RJ45 Ports which can be used in a stack configuration as well as standard Gigabit Ethernet switch ports when configured as a standalone switch.
•
Rear panel Redundant Power Supply connector for a redundant power supply connection. The switch connects to an Enterasys C2RPS‐SYS using a C2RPS‐PSM Cable.
Caution: The A2H124-24FX is not a PoE-compliant device. Do not connect a
SecureStack C2 PoE Redundant Power System (C2RPS-POE) to the power connector.
Otherwise, damage to the device may result.
Precaución: El dispositivo A2H124-24FX no cumple con el estándar PoE. No conecte

If you are installing this switch in a stacked configuration, repeat this procedure for each switch until all switches have been installed in the stack, then proceed to “Connecting Stacking Cables” on page 3‐11. Otherwise, proceed to “Connecting AC and RPS‐SYS Power” on page 3‐16.
Connecting Stacking Cables
The stack of switches can be connected in a closed loop or daisy chained. In a closed loop all the switches are connected in sequence and the last switch in the stack is connected back to the first switch. In a daisy chain configuration the cable that would return the connection back to the first switch in a closed loop is not installed. The advantage of the closed loop is redundancy, this configuration eliminates any single point of failure. Up to eight switches can be stacked together and connected by standard UTP Category 5 or better cables. The stacking cables allow the entire stack to operate with a single IP address.
SecureStack A2 Installation Guide
3-11
Connecting Stacking Cables
Figure 3‐8 shows an example of a four‐high stack connected in a closed loop configuration. All STACK DOWN and STACK UP connectors are used in the installation. The stacking cable connections are from the STACK DOWN connector of one switch to the STACK UP connector of the next switch up in the stack. A stacking cable connection from the STACK DOWN connector of the switch at the top of the stack to the STACK UP connector at the bottom of the stack closes the loop. In a daisy chain configuration, one cable connection is not made.

Configuring Switches in a Stack
Configuring Switches in a Stack
The information in the following sections is important to understand A2 switch operation and installations in a stack installation.
About SecureStack A2 Switch Operation in a Stack
The SecureStack A2 products are stackable switches that can be adapted and scaled to help meet your network needs. These switches provide a management platform and uplink to a network backbone for a stacked group of up to eight A2 switches. Once installed in a stack, the switches behave and perform as a single switch. As such, you can start with a single switch and add more switches as your network expands. You can also mix different products in the same family in a single stack to provide a desired combination of port types and functions to match the requirements of individual applications. In all cases, a stack of switches performs as one large product, and is managed as a single network entity.
When switches are installed and connected as described back in “Connecting Stacking Cables” on page 3‐11, the following occurs during initialization:
•
The switch that will manage the stack is automatically established and is referred to as the Manager switch.
•
All other switches are established as Member switches in the stack. •
The hierarchy of the switches that will assume the function of backup manager is also determined in case the current manager malfunctions, is powered down, or is disconnected from the stack. •
The Console port on the manager switch remains active for out‐of‐band (local) switch management, but the Console port on each member switch is deactivated. This enables you to set the IP address and system password using a single Console port. Now each switch can be configured locally using only the manager’s Console port, or in‐band using a remote device and the CLI set of commands described in this section. For procedures used for various types of connections to the Console port, refer to “Connecting to Console Port for Local Management” on page 3‐20.
Once a stack is created (more than one switch is interconnected), the following occurs:
1.
Switch (unit) IDs are arbitrarily assigned on a first‐come, first‐served basis.
2.
Switch IDs are saved against each module. Then, every time a board is power‐cycled, it will initialize with the same switch ID. This is important for port‐specific information (for example: fe.4.12 is the 12th Fast Ethernet port on switch number 4).
SecureStack A2 Installation Guide
3-13
Configuring Switches in a Stack
3.
The management election process uses the following precedence to assign a management switch:
a.
Previously assigned/elected management switch
b.
Management assigned priority (values 1–15)
c.
Hardware preference level
d. Highest MAC Address
Recommended Procedures for New and Existing Stacks
Important
The following procedures assume that all switches have a clean configuration from manufacturing.
When adding a new switch to an already running stack, it is also assumed that the new switch is
using the same firmware image version as other switches in the stack.
Installing a New Stackable System of Up to Eight Switches
Use the following procedure to install a new stack of up to eight switches out of the box. Before applying power, make all physical connections with the stack cables as described in “Connecting Stacking Cables” on page 3‐11.
1.
Once all of the stack cables have been connected, individually power on each switch from top to bottom (connecting power to a switch is described in “Connecting AC and RPS‐SYS Power” on page 3‐16).
If the switches are powered on almost simultaneously, the system will automatically select the first one that powers up as the Master switch and the others as Member switches. The switches are assigned unit IDs in the order that they become fully operational.
You can control the unit ID assignment according to the physical position in a stack. When you power up each switch and allow it to become fully operational before applying power to the next switch, the first one becomes the Manager and all the next switches will join that stack (regardless of Priority, Firmware Revision, or MAC Address). The switches are assigned unit IDs in the order that you power on each switch.
Note: Once switch IDs are assigned, they are persistent and will be retained during a
power cycle to any or all of the switches.
2.
3-14
(Optional) If desired, change the management switch using the set switch movemanagement command as described in the SecureStack A2 Configuration Guide.
Hardware Installation
Configuring Switches in a Stack
3.
Once the desired master switch has been selected, the current configuration will be saved and the stack will automatically reset. You must now move the console cable to the new management unit.
4.
Stack members other than the management unit will only identify their unit number through their console port.
5.
Persistent data on all stack units can be cleared along with the current configuration using the clear config all as described in the SecureStack A2 Configuration Guide.
Adding a New Switch to an Existing Stack
Use the following procedure to install a new switch to an existing stack configuration. This procedure assumes that the new switch being added has a clean configuration from manufacturing and is running the same firmware image version as other switches in the stack.
1.
Ensure that power is off on the new switch being installed.
2.
Use one of the following methods to complete the stack cable connections:
3.
–
If the running stack uses a daisy chain topology, make the stack cable connections from the bottom of the stack to the new switch (that is, STACK DOWN port from the bottom switch of the running stack to the STACK UP port on the new switch).
–
If the running stack uses a closed loop configuration, break the loop and make the stack cable connections to the new switch to close the loop.
Apply power to the new switch.
Important Considerations About Using Clear Config in a Stack
When using the clear config command (as described in the SecureStack A2 Configuration Guide)
to clear configuration parameters in a stack, it is important to remember the following:
• Use clear config to clear config parameters without clearing stack switch IDs. This command
WILL NOT clear stack parameters and avoids the process of re-numbering the stack.
• Use clear config all when it is necessary to clear all config parameters, including stack switch
IDs and switch priority values.
Considerations About Using Clear Config on a Standalone A2 with
the Uplink Ports Configured as Standard Gigabit Ethernet Ports.
When using the clear config command (as described in the SecureStack A2 Configuration Guide)
to clear configuration parameters on a standalone A2 switch with the uplink ports configured as
standard Ethernet ports (Ethernet mode), it is important to remember the following:
• The clear config command WILL NOT set the front panel uplink ports back to stack ports.
• The clear config all command WILL set the front panel uplink ports back to stack ports.

Note: The power supply in the switch has automatic voltage sensing that allows
connection to power sources ranging from 100 to 240 VAC.
To connect a switch to the AC power source, refer to Figure 3‐9 and proceed as follows:
1.
Plug the power cord into the switch AC power connector.
2.
Plug the other end of the power cord into a dedicated grounded AC outlet (not shown). The type of power outlet and power cord are country‐dependent.
Note: If you plan to connect all the switches quickly to allow automatic Manager selection,
wait until all switches are fully operational before proceeding to the next step.
If you plan to power up each switch and allow it to become fully operational before
applying power to the next switch, proceed to the next step.

Observe the power CPU LED (not shown), located on the front panel. During the initialization, the CPU LED will start by illuminating solid amber, then start blinking green, then blinking amber, then blinking green again until the end of the initialization, and then turns solid green.
Note: If the CPU LED illuminates solid red, there was a critical failure. For more
information about the LED indications and troubleshooting, refer to Chapter 4. If you need
additional help, contact Enterasys Networks. Refer to “Getting Help” on page 1-6 for
details.
If the switch is a standalone switch, it will take approximately 30 seconds for the switch to start up. If the switch is a stack Manager, it can take up to 3 minutes or more to start up, depending on the number of Member switches in the stack.

Stack Initialization Overview
When you install and connect all the stacking cables to the switches in the stack before applying power to the switches, the following occurs:
•
The switch that will manage (Manager) the stack is automatically established with all other switches established as Member switches in the stack. When the switches complete their initializations, one of the switches in the stack will illuminate its Manager LED, indicating that it is the stack Manager. The Manager LED on each Member switch will be off.
•
The hierarchy of the switches that will function as backup Manager is also determined in case the current Manager malfunctions, is powered down, or is disconnected from the stack.
•
The Console port on each Member switch will provide only the unit number. Only the Console port on the Manager switch is active and provide a CLI for out‐of band configuration to set the IP address, password, and other settings.
Once you know which switch is the Manager, proceed to “Connecting to Console Port for Local Management” on page 3‐20.

Connecting to Console Port for Local Management
Connecting to Console Port for Local Management
This section describes how to connect an RS232 DTE interface cable from a PC, a VT series terminal, or a modem to an A2H124‐24FX for out‐of‐band sessions using CLI commands.
Note: When switches are connected in a stack configuration and all stacking cables are
connected before powering up the switches, one switch in the stack will be automatically
designated as the Manager of the stack and its Console port will remain active. All other
switches will become Member switches and their Console ports will be deactivated.
What Is Needed
The following is a list of user‐supplied DTE interface cables that may be needed to connect the DB9 male Console port connector on the switch. The cables are terminated by a DB9 female connector at one end, and by one of three type connectors at the other end, depending on the type connection needed for the remote device. The cables that may be needed are as follows:
•
DB9 female‐to‐DB9 female
•
DB9 female‐to‐DB25 female
•
DB9 female‐to‐DB25 male
Using a DTE modem DB9 female‐to‐DB9 female cable, you can connect products equipped with a DB9 DTE male console port to an IBM or compatible PC running a VT series emulation software package.
Using a DTE modem DB9 female‐to‐DB25 female cable, you can connect products equipped with a DB9 DTE male console port to a VT series terminal or VT type terminals running emulation programs for the VT series.
Using a DTE modem DB9 female‐to‐DB25 male cable, you can connect products equipped with a DB9 DTE male console port to a Hayes compatible modem that supports 9600 baud.
The cable used must connect the Console port Received Data, Pin 2 to the Transmitted Data pin at the other end of the cable. The connection from the Console port Transmitted Data, Pin 3 (must be connected) to the Received Data pin cable connection at the other end of the cable. The DB9 Console port pin assignments are shown in Figure 3‐11.

Connecting Fiber-Optic Cables from A2H124-24FX to the Network
This section provides the procedure to connect fiber‐optic cables from the 100BASE‐FX, MT‐RJ front panel ports of the A2H124‐24FX to the network or other devices. Each fiber‐
optic link consists of two fiber‐optic strands within the cable: Transmit (TX) and Receive (RX).
The transmit strand from an A2H124‐24FX port connects to the receive port of a fiber‐
optic 100BASE‐FX Ethernet device at the other end of the segment. The receive strand of the applicable MT‐RJ port on the switch connects to the transmit port of the fiber‐optic 100BASE‐FX Ethernet device.
Note: An odd number of crossovers (preferably one) must be maintained between devices
so that the transmit port is connected to the receive port of the other device and vice versa.
To connect a fiber‐optic cable segment to the switch, refer to Figure 3‐15 and proceed as follows:
1.
Remove the protective covers (not shown) from the MT‐RJ front panel connector and from the connector on each end of the cable.
Note: Leave the protective covers in place when the connectors are not in use to prevent
contamination.
Caution: Do not touch the ends of the fiber-optic strands, and do not let the ends come in
contact with dust, dirt, or other contaminants. Contamination of cable ends causes
problems in data transmissions. If the ends of the fiber-optic strands become
contaminated, use a canned duster to blow the surfaces clean. A cleaning swab saturated
with optical-grade isopropyl alcohol may also be used to clean the ends.
Precaución: No toque los extremos de los cables de fibra óptica y evite su contacto con el
polvo, la suciedad o con cualquier otro contaminante. Si los extremos de los cables se
ensucian, es posible que la transmisión de datos se vea afectada. Si nota que los
extremos de los cables de fibra óptica se ensucian, utilice aire comprimido para limpiarlos.
También puede limpiarlos con un estropajo embebido en alcohol isopropílico.

This section contains the procedures for connecting a 1000BASE‐SX multimode fiber‐optic segment from the network or other device to an MT‐RJ port connector in a Mini‐GBIC (MGBIC‐MT01).
Each fiber‐optic link consists of two fiber‐optic strands within the cable:
•
Transmit (TX)
•
Receive (RX)
The transmit strand from the MT‐RJ port connects to the receive port of a fiber‐optic Gigabit Ethernet device at the other end of the segment. The receive strand of the applicable MT‐RJ port connects to the transmit port of the fiber‐optic Gigabit Ethernet switch.
Enterasys Networks recommends labeling fiber‐optic cables to indicate receive and transmit ends. Many cables are pre‐labeled, providing matching labels or tapes at both ends of each strand of cable.
To connect an MT‐RJ cable to a fixed MT‐RJ connector of a Mini‐GBIC:
1.
Remove the protective covers from the Mini‐GBIC MT‐RJ fiber‐optic port and from the connectors on each end of the cable.
Note: Leave the protective covers in place when the connectors are not in use to prevent
contamination.
3-26
Hardware Installation
Connecting to the Network
Caution: Do not touch the ends of the fiber-optic strands, and do not let the ends come in
contact with dust, dirt, or other contaminants. Contamination of cable ends causes
problems in data transmissions. If the ends of the fiber-optic strands become
contaminated, use a canned duster to blow the surfaces clean. A fiber-port cleaning swab
saturated with optical-grade isopropyl alcohol may also be used to clean the ends.
Precaución: No toque los extremos de los cables de fibra óptica y evite su contacto con

Connecting UTP Cables to RJ45 Mini-GBIC Ports
The RJ45 Mini‐GBIC (MGBIC‐02) ports are10/100/1000 Mbps ports and have internal crossovers. When connecting a workstation to these ports, use a straight‐through cable. When connecting networking devices to these ports, such as a bridge, repeater, or router, use a crossover cable.
Note: RJ45 Mini-GBIC ports support Category 5 Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) cabling
with an impedance between 85 and 111 ohms. Category 3 cable may be used if the
connection is going to be used only for 10 Mbps.
To connect twisted pair segments to the switch, refer to and proceed as follows:
1.
Ensure that the device to be connected at the other end of the segment is powered ON.
2.
Connect the twisted pair segment to the switch by inserting the RJ45 connector on the twisted pair segment into the RJ45 Mini‐GBIC.
3.
Verify that a link exists by checking that the Link/Activity LED is ON (solid green or blinking green). If the Link/Activity LED is OFF, perform the following steps until it is on:
a.
Verify that the cabling being used is Category 5 or better with an impedance between 85 and 111 ohms with a maximum length of 100 meters (328 feet). b.
Verify that the device at the other end of the twisted pair segment is on and properly connected to the segment.
c.
Verify that the RJ45 connectors on the twisted pair segment have the proper pinouts and check the cable for continuity. Typically, a crossover cable is used between hub devices. A straight‐through cable is used to connect between switches or hub devices and an end user (computer). Refer to Figure 3‐16 and Figure 3‐17 for four‐wire RJ45 connections. Refer to Figure 3‐18 and Figure 3‐19 for eight‐wire RJ45 connections.
d. Ensure that the twisted pair connection meets the dB loss and cable specifications outlined in the Cabling Guide. Refer to “Related Documents” on page xvi for information on obtaining this document.
4.
If a link is not established, contact Enterasys Networks. Refer to “Getting Help” on page 1‐6 for details.
Repeat all steps above until all connections have been made.
