3.1 Map Devices
After getting an IP address and logging into the ATTO ExpressNAV System Manager, you have options to map
devices so that the FibreBridge can access the devices in your network.
The ATTO FibreBridge allows parallel SAS/SATA
devices to participate in a Fibre Channel arbitrated
loop or on a fabric. Fibre Channel and SAS/SATA use
different models to address devices. The FibreBridge
translates between these addressing models.
The ATTO ExpressNAV interface displays the current
mapping information for SAS/SATA devices. Refer to
5.0 Interface options on page 14.
Note
SCSI commands sent to offline devices are
rejected.
FibreBridge mapping
On a Fibre Channel Arbitrated Loop, the FibreBridge
appears at a single Arbitrated Loop Port Address
(AL_PA). Each device on an arbitrated loop is
assigned a unique AL_PA during loop initialization.
The FibreBridge supports both modes of AL_PA
assignment, commonly referred to as hard and soft
addressing.
Note
Fibre Channel Arbitrated Loop technology is
only available for 4Gb/s and 8Gb/s.
WWN: to identify each Fibre Channel device while
addressing, each Fibre Channel device is assigned a
unique World Wide Name (WWN). The 64-bit WWN
has the following format:
Field
Name
WWN
Format
Company ID
Device ID
Byte

1
2
3
4
5
6

xx
Soft addressing allows the loop initialization master
to assign the FibreBridge a unique address during the
loop initialization process. The address assigned
cannot be determined before loop initialization. Adding
new devices to an arbitrated loop may change the
address assigned to the FibreBridge.
Hard addressing allows a predetermined address to
be assigned to the FibreBridge. The FibreBridge tries
to acquire the desired hard address. If another device
has already been assigned the specified address, the
FibreBridge acquires a currently unassigned address.
Note
The default mode is soft addressing.
SAS/SATA device mapping
SAS/SATA devices connected to the FibreBridge are
viewed as Fibre Channel LUNs to the host computer.
RAID device mapping
When using the FibreBridge 7500 with a device that
supports multiple LUNs behind a target, such as a
RAID array, you must disable SAS Mapping by
Topology.
1 If you are not already in the ExpressNAV
interface, type the IP address of your
FibreBridge into a standard browser
2 Click on the Advanced menu item on the left
side of the screen
3 The Advanced CLI Configuration page
appears
4 Type Set SASMapByTopology disabled
5 Type SaveConfiguration restart
Once the FibreBridge restarts, any attached RAID
devices will be scanned and all LUNs will be mapped.
Note
If SASMapByTopology is enabled, RAID
Processor LUNs will be mapped, but not RAID
Groups. Alternatively, you may connect to the
CLI via the FibreBridge serial port and issue
the above commands.
Drive Map DirectorTM
Drive Map Director uses SMP to provide a predictable
mapping structure for devices attached to the
FibreBridge 7500. To use this feature, drive
enclosures must support SAS expanders with SMP
protocol such as the HP StorageWorks D2700 SAS
JBOD. If SMP supporting expanders are not present in
your storage system the FibreBridge will revert to the
AutoMap feature (see AutoMap devices).
Mapping Devices with SMP
Drive Map Director assigns a Fibre target number to
each shelf of storage and a Fibre LUN is reserved for
each slot within the enclosure. This numbering
scheme is static and will remain with the shelf and slot
8
ATTO Technology Inc. FibreBridge Installation and Operation Manual
location whenever a drive or shelf is added or
removed. This allows maps to remain the same when
shelves or drives need to be swapped out due to
failure and remain consistent during power cycles of
the FibreBridge.

3.2 Remote Monitoring, Management
The Ethernet port provides monitoring and management using the ExpressNAV System Manager.
Remote system monitoring may be set up through the
Remote Management page of the ExpressNAV
interface (see Exhibit 3.0-3, below) using the Simple
Network Management Protocol (SNMP) or Email.
Various types of problems may create a notification:
• Device errors such as medium error, aborted
command and hard error
• Device transitions from online to offline
• Critical and warning temperature conditions
• Power supply status conditions
Messages may state that a device is not working, a
medium has an error, or a command has been
stopped.
Exhibit 3.0-3
You may designate which warning level a recipient
receives. For example, a recipient with a critical
severity level only receives critical messages and not
warning or informational messages.
In both monitoring systems, you select the warning
levels for each recipient:
• All: all warnings, critical events and
informational messages
• Warning: events which are either warnings or
critical events
• Critical: only events which are critical
• None: no messages are sent

5.0 Interface Options
Alternative methods to the ATTO ExpressNAV Interface may be used to manage the FibreBridge. ATTO
ExpressNAV System Manager is the recommended interface.
Using ExpressNAV System Manager
Each page in the ATTO ExpressNAV System Manager
provides information and/or configuration parameters
based on a specific topic.
ATTO ExpressNAV is the recommended management
tool for the FibreBridge. It is a web-based graphical
user interface (GUI) that allows you to manage the
FibreBridge by clicking choices and commands in
traditional GUI fashion or by entering CLI commands
directly, as you would in a terminal emulation session,
on the Advanced CLI Configuration page.
Each page can be reached through the menu at the
side of each page. An image on each page’s header
shows each port in the product faceplate. Each port is
clickable and takes you to the appropriate page.
If you have completed configuration operations and
have clicked Submit on the page you are viewing, go
to the Restart page and restart the FibreBridge to
save the settings.
If you have not completed configuration changes, go
on to the next page.

personnel until the problem is solved.
If you have difficulty using the serial port, verify that
you have the correct settings and that your serial cable
is less then two meters in length.
Using Telnet
Up to three Telnet sessions can be conducted
simultaneously. A serial port session can use the CLI
while Telnet sessions are open. Whichever session
issues the first set CLI command can continue to
issue set commands, while the other sessions can
only issue get commands or display information.
Once a connection is established, refer to CLI
provides ASCII-based Interface on page ii of the
Appendix.

Serial port connections
The ATTO FibreBridge supports remote service
operations over the RS-232 serial port using standard
terminal emulation software available with most
systems.
Connect a RJ45 to DB-9 serial cable (null modem)
between the ATTO FibreBridge serial port and one of
the computer's serial COM ports.
A gender changer or DB-9 to DB-25 converter may be
needed depending on the cables being used.
Ethernet connections
The 100/1000BASE-T Ethernet ports provide remote
monitoring and management using the ATTO
ExpressNAV System Manager.
When you connect an Ethernet cable between the
FibreBridge and a 100/1000BASE-T connection, you
may need a crossover cable connecting directly to a
computer. The ATTO FibreBridge auto detects the
Ethernet speed by default.

Appendix B
CLI Provides ASCII-based Interface
The command line interface (CLI) provides access to the ATTO FibreBridge Services through a set of ASCII
commands. CLI commands may be entered while in CLI mode.
FibreBridge Services provide configuration and
monitoring for the FibreBridge. The command line
interface (CLI) is a set of ASCII-based commands
which perform these tasks. CLI commands may be
entered while in CLI mode.
• CLI commands are context sensitive and
generally follow a standard format:
•
[Get|Set] Command [Parameter1|Parameter2]
•
•
•
•
followed by the return or enter key
CLI commands are case insensitive: you may
type all upper or all lower case or a mixture.
Upper and lower case in this manual and the
help screen are for clarification only.
Commands generally have three types of
operation: get, set and immediate.
The get form returns the value of a parameter or
setting and is an informational command.
Responses to get commands are followed by
Ready.
•
•
•
The set form is an action that changes the value
of a parameter or configuration setting. It may
require a SaveConfiguration command and a
restart of the system before it is implemented.
The restart can be accomplished as part of the
SaveConfiguration command or by using a
separate FirmwareRestart command. A
number of set commands may be issued before
the SaveConfiguration command.
Responses to set commands are either an error
message or Ready. *. The asterisk indicates
you must use a SaveConfiguration command
to finalize the set command.
SaveConfiguration asks if you want to restart
the system or not.
Set commands which do not require a
SaveConfiguration command, defined as
Immediate commands, are executed.
Responses to Immediate commands are either
an error message or data results followed by
Ready.

Password
Reserve
Specifies password for all non-serial sessions: Telnet, FTP and
ExpressNAV interface. You are prompted for the current
password, to enter the new password, and to confirm the new
password. If local Echo is enabled, password echoes all *
characters. If VerboseMode has been enabled, CLI requests
that you re-enter the password. When the password is all 0s,
Telnet and FTP do not validate the password and MD5
authentication is disabled.Configure an empty password by
pressing the Enter key when prompted for the new password
and the new password confirmation.Passwords are case
sensitive and can be 1-32 characters long with no spaces.
Prevents other CLI sessions from modifying the FibreBridge.
When the FibreBridge services interface is reserved, set
commands are unavailable but get commands are available. At
least one service interface always has access to the
FibreBridge at all times. This interface always reports
RELEASED status, since it may issue set commands.
Reservation of the FibreBridge is implicit: if the configuration is
changed by any user of CLI sessions, the FibreBridge becomes
RESERVED. Executing a SaveConfiguration command,
RestoreConfiguration or FirmwareRestart forced
releases the FibreBridge so that other devices may modify it.

SaveConfiguration
Many commands require a SaveConfiguration command to
be executed as indicated by the return Ready. *. When you
invoke a SaveConfiguration command, the current
configuration is permanently saved in the FibreBridge and the
new configuration becomes the active configuration. If a
firmware restart is required to make the requested change
permanent, you are asked to confirm the restart. You can
override this request by indicating the override value on the
command line. You may make several changes through
commands before implementing the restart, but once you have
restarted the FibreBridge, all the command changes created
before the restart and save are implemented. If you select the
restart option, the FibreBridge executes its complete start up
cycle.
SaveConfiguration <Restart | NoRestart>
SerialNumber
Reports the FibreBridge serial number. The serial number,
unique for each FibreBridge, is a 13-character field. The first
seven alphanumeric characters are an abbreviation of the
