Installing the Hardware
For Dell Networking OS version 8.4.6.0, the minimum PSUs required for system power is based on
the power requirements of the RPMs, the line cards, and the type of fan tray present in the chassis.
System Power Required = Power required for 2 RSMs + Power Required for Fan Tray + Power
required for Line cards in the system.
Number of PSUs Required for System Power = System Power Required /90% of PSU power
For power requirements corresponding to different components, refer to Installing and Maintaining the C7004/C150 System and Installing and Maintaining the C7008/C300 System.
If N PSUs are required for system power, then N+1 th PSU is reserved for redundant system power.
For details corresponding to PoE power availability, refer to Power Over Ethernet section of Dell
Networking OS Configuration Guide.

Installing RPMs and Line Cards
The C7004/C150 system accommodates four line cards and two route processor
modules (RPMs).
The C7008/C300 System accommodates eight line cards and two route
processor modules (RPMs).
RPMs
The C-Series system requires at least one RPM; however, Dell Networking
recommends two RPMs.
•
One RPM provides 48 Gigabits of bandwidth to each line card.
•
Two RPMs provides 96 Gigabits of bandwidth to each line card.
•
To control airflow for adequate system cooling, personal safety, and EMI
containment during operation, blanks are required in empty slots. You must
install all chassis slots with operational modules or blanks. Always replace
cards and blank panels immediately.
•
The blank panels for RPMs and line cards are different sizes (RPM blanks
are smaller); be sure that blank panels are installed in the correct slots.
•
RPMs are hot-swappable. high availability (HA) is supported.
•
If your system contains two RPMs, both RPMs must have the same software
image.
•
RPMs are interchangable between the C7008/C300 and the C7004/C150
only if they are running Dell Networking OS version 7.6.1.0 or later.
CAUTION: RPMs are designed to be installed in either the R0 or R1 slot. Do
not force RPMs into line cards slots. RPMs are keyed differently than line
cards to prevent improper installation.
Line Cards
Line cards are hot-swappable. You can insert line card into any line card slot. On
the C7004/C150, line card slots are numbered 0 to 3. On the C7008/C300, line
card slots are labeled 0 to 7. You can see the slot numbering labels when you
install the fan tray.

Install a blank panel in all slots that do not have a card, and secure it
with the screws provided.
Installing the Fan Tray
The C-Series chassis contains one field-replaceable fan tray. There are two types
of fan trays that you can install: one contains six fans that run at varying speeds
depending on system temperature; the other contains six fans that run at a
constant speed. For both types of trays, air flows through the system toward the
fans (right to left) and is exhausted on fan-side of the chassis. The fan tray is
accessible from the front of the chassis.
WARNING: To ensure proper temperature and airflow control, the fan tray
must always be installed and operating properly.
NOTE: The system does not have an air filter. Ensure that you clean the
installation site and chassis regularly.
Step
Task
1
Slide the fan tray into the fan slot.

CONFIGURATION
Configure the Enable Password
EXEC Privilege mode is accessed by the enable command. Configure a
password as a basic security measure. When using a console connection, EXEC
Privilege mode is unrestricted by default; it cannot be reached by a VTY
connection if you have not configured a password. There are two types of enable
passwords:
•
enable password stores the password in the running/startup configuration
using a DES encryption method.
•
enable secret is stored in the running/startup configuration by using a
stronger, MD5 encryption method.
Dell Networking recommends using the enable secret password.

Create a VLAN
The default virtual local area network (VLAN) is part of the system startup
configuration, and is by default, VLAN 1. You may make another VLAN the
default VLAN. You cannot delete, disable, or configure the default VLAN (you
cannot assign it an IP address), and only untagged interfaces can belong to it.
When you configure an interface, a switchport automatically places it in the
default VLAN as an untagged interface. All switchports must belong to at least
one VLAN, so to remove a switchport from the default VLAN, place it as
tagged or untagged in some other VLAN, or remove the switchport
configuration.

CONFIGURATION

EXEC Privilege
Assign Interfaces to a VLAN
A port may either be an untagged member of a single VLAN, or a tagged
member of perhaps multiple VLANs.
•
Untagged Ports — ports that do not append an 802.1Q VLAN tag to frames
on egress, and do not accept tagged frames on ingress (tagged frames are
dropped). You must connect untagged ports to VLAN-unaware devices.
•
Tagged Ports — ports that append an 802.1Q tag to frames on egress, and
accept only tagged frames on ingress (untagged frames are dropped). You
must connect tagged ports to VLAN-aware devices.
When you configure an enabled port as a switchport, the port is placed in the
default VLAN. To remove a switchport from the default VLAN, remove the
switchport configuration. To move the port to another VLAN, add it to the
desired VLAN as either a tagged or untagged member.
To view just the interfaces that are in Layer 2 mode, enter the show interfaces
switchport command in EXEC mode.
