THE SPECIFICATIONS AND INFORMATION REGARDING THE PRODUCTS IN THIS MANUAL ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. ALL
STATEMENTS, INFORMATION, AND RECOMMENDATIONS IN THIS MANUAL ARE BELIEVED TO BE ACCURATE BUT ARE PRESENTED WITHOUT
WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. USERS MUST TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR APPLICATION OF ANY PRODUCTS.
THE SOFTWARE LICENSE AND LIMITED WARRANTY FOR THE ACCOMPANYING PRODUCT ARE SET FORTH IN THE INFORMATION PACKET THAT
SHIPPED WITH THE PRODUCT AND ARE INCORPORATED HEREIN BY THIS REFERENCE. IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO LOCATE THE SOFTWARE LICENSE
OR LIMITED WARRANTY, CONTACT YOUR CISCO REPRESENTATIVE FOR A COPY.
The following information is for FCC compliance of Class A devices: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant
to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial
environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio-frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause
harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case users will be required
to correct the interference at their own expense.
The following information is for FCC compliance of Class B devices: The equipment described in this manual generates and may radiate radio-frequency energy. If it is not
installed in accordance with Cisco’s installation instructions, it may cause interference with radio and television reception. This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits for a Class B digital device in accordance with the specifications in part 15 of the FCC rules. These specifications are designed to provide reasonable
protection against such interference in a residential installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
Modifying the equipment without Cisco’s written authorization may result in the equipment no longer complying with FCC requirements for Class A or Class B digital
devices. In that event, your right to use the equipment may be limited by FCC regulations, and you may be required to correct any interference to radio or television
communications at your own expense.
You can determine whether your equipment is causing interference by turning it off. If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the Cisco equipment or one of its
peripheral devices. If the equipment causes interference to radio or television reception, try to correct the interference by using one or more of the following measures:
• Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference stops.
• Move the equipment to one side or the other of the television or radio.
• Move the equipment farther away from the television or radio.
• Plug the equipment into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or radio. (That is, make certain the equipment and the television or radio are on circuits
controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.)
Modifications to this product not authorized by Cisco Systems, Inc. could void the FCC approval and negate your authority to operate the product.

Definitions of Service Request Severity
To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity
definitions.
Severity 1 (S1)—An existing network is “down” or there is a critical impact to your business operations.
You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.
Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your
business operations are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and
Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.
Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of the network is impaired while most business operations
remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service
to satisfactory levels.
Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or
configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.

Product Overview
This chapter provides a functional overview of the Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3040 for FSC, referred
to as the blade switch. The blade switch is installed in the Fujitsu Siemens Computers (FSC)
PRIMERGY BX600 S2 blade server, referred to as the BX600 system.
You can connect the uplink ports to other devices such as switches, routers, Cisco Wireless Access Point
workstations, Cisco IP phones, or other networking equipment. You can also connect standalone servers
or PCs to those ports.
These topics are included:

Features
The 16-port Gigabit Ethernet blade switch aggregates 10 internal servers and connects them to the
network through 6 uplink ports. Refer to the blade switch software configuration guide for examples that
show how you might deploy the blade switch in your network.
These are the blade switch features:
•
10 internal Gigabit Ethernet 1000BASE-X ports
•
1 console port
•
2 external 10/100/1000BASE-T copper Gigabit Ethernet ports
•
4 external small-form factor pluggable (SFP) module uplink ports that support 1000BASE-SX fiber
optic and 10/100/1000BASE-T copper (only Cisco SFP modules are supported)
Note
When installed in the blade switch, 1000BASE-T SFP modules operates at 10, 100, or 1000
Mbps in full-duplex mode or at 10 or 100 Mbps in half-duplex mode.
The BX600 system controls its own cooling and temperature. Its temperature sensor monitors the
temperature of any blades that are installed. The BX600 system management blade controls the fan
speed. The blade switch does not have its own fan.

You can connect the switch module through its console port to a PC by using the RJ-45-to-DB9 female
cable that ships with the product. If you need a spare cable, you can order a kit (part number
ACS-DSBUASYN=) directly from Cisco. If you want to attach the switch module to any other device,
such as a terminal server, you might need a different cable. For console port and adapter pinout
information, see the “Connector and Cable Specifications” section on page B-1.
For information on the BX600 system management blade console port, see the BX600 system
documentation.

Product Overview
Front Panel Description
10/100/1000 Ports
The two copper Ethernet ports operate at 10, 100, or 1000 Mbps and support autonegotiation and
full-duplex operation. When set for autonegotiation, the port senses the speed and duplex settings of the
attached device and advertises its own capabilities. If the connected device also supports
autonegotiation, the blade switch port negotiates the best connection (that is, the fastest line speed that
both devices support and full-duplex transmission if the attached device supports it) and configures itself
accordingly. In all cases, the attached device must be within 328 feet (100 meters).
You can disable autonegotiation for the two 10/100/1000BASE-T ports by using the Cisco IOS
command-line interface (CLI). For more information, see the blade switch command reference and
software configuration guide.
The ten internal downlink ports are 1000BASE-X with no negotiation for speed or duplex.
Note
1000BASE-T traffic requires at least a Category 5 cable. 10BASE-T traffic can use Category 3 or
Category 4 cables.
When you connect the blade switch to workstations, servers, routers, and Cisco IP Phones, be sure to use
a straight-through Ethernet cable. When you connect the blade switch to another blade switch, use a
crossover Ethernet cable. For any other type of connection, you can use a straight-through Ethernet
cable. When you use a straight-through or crossover cable for 1000BASE-T connections, be sure to use
a twisted four-pair, Category 5 cable for proper operation. Pinouts for the cables are described in
Appendix B, “Connector and Cable Specifications.”
Note
You can use the mdix auto interface configuration command in the CLI to enable the automatic
medium-dependent interface crossover (auto-MDIX) feature. When the auto-MDIX feature is enabled,
the blade switch detects the required cable type for copper Ethernet connections and configures the
interfaces accordingly. Therefore, you can use either a crossover or a straight-through cable for
connections to a copper 10/100/1000 or 1000BASE-T SFP module port on the blade switch, regardless
of the type of device on the other end of the connection.
The auto-MDIX feature is enabled by default. For configuration information for this feature, refer to the
blade switch software configuration guide or command reference.
SFP Module Slots
The blade switch uses Gigabit Ethernet SFP modules to establish fiber-optic connections. These
transceiver modules are field-replaceable, providing the uplink interfaces when inserted in an
SFP module slot. You can use the SFP modules for Gigabit uplink connections to other switches. You
use fiber-optic cables with LC or MT-RJ connectors to connect to a fiber-optic SFP module. You use a
Category 5 cable with RJ-45 connectors to connect to a copper SFP module.
The four external SFP module ports operate at 1000 Mbps when fiber-optic SFP modules are installed
and operate at 10/100/1000 Mbps when copper SFP modules are installed. Autonegotation is supported
on copper SPF modules, but not on fiber-optic SFP modules.
See the blade switch release notes for the latest information about which SFP module types are
supported.
For more information about the SFP modules, refer to your SFP module documentation.

Blade Switch Installation
Installing and Removing SFP Modules
Step 12
Disconnect the BX600 system serial port or the blade switch console port from the PC. See the
“Management Options” section on page 1-5 for information about configuring and managing the blade
switch.
If you need to rerun the system configuration dialog, see the “Resetting the Switch Configuration”
section on page 2-15.
Resetting the Switch Configuration
This section describes how to reset the switch configuration by rerunning the initial configuration dialog
(System Configuration Dialog). These are reasons why you might want to reset the switch:
Caution
•
You installed the switch in your network and cannot connect to it because you assigned the wrong
IP address.
•
You want to clear all configuration from the switch and assign a new IP address.
Resetting the switch deletes the configuration and reboots the switch.
To reset the switch, at the switch prompt, enter enable and press Return or Enter. At the Privileged
EXEC prompt, switch#, enter setup and press Return or Enter.
The switch displays the prompt to run the initial configuration dialog. See the “Completing the Initial
Configuration” section on page 2-13 to re-enter the configuration information and set up your switch.
Installing and Removing SFP Modules
These sections describe how to install and remove SFP modules. The modules are inserted into the
SFP module slots on the blade switch. These field-replaceable modules provide uplink interfaces.
You can use any combination of SFP modules. Refer to the blade switch release notes for the list of the
supported SFP modules. Each port must match the wave-length specifications on the other end of the
cable, and the cable must not exceed the stipulated cable length for reliable communications. See the
“Installation Guidelines” section on page 2-3 for cable stipulations for SFP connections.
Use only Cisco SFP modules. Each SFP module has an internal serial EEPROM that is encoded with
security information. This encoding provides a way for Cisco to identify and validate that the
SFP module meets the requirements for the blade switch. For detailed instructions on installing,
removing, and cabling the SFP module, refer to your SFP module documentation.
Installing SFP Modules into SFP Module Slots
Figure 2-7 shows an SFP module that has a bale-clasp latch.
Caution
We strongly recommend that you do not install or remove fiber-optic SFP modules with cables attached
because of the potential damage to the cables, the cable connector, or the optical interfaces in the
SFP module. Disconnect all cables before removing or installing an SFP module.

Connecting to the 10/100/1000 Ports
Connecting to the 10/100/1000 Ports
The 10/100/1000 ports configure themselves to operate at the speed of attached devices. If the attached
ports do not support autonegotiation, you can explicitly set the speed and duplex parameters. Connecting
devices that do not autonegotiate or that have their speed and duplex parameters manually set can reduce
performance or result in no linkage.
To maximize performance, choose one of these methods for configuring the Ethernet ports:
•
Let the ports autonegotiate both speed and duplex.
•
Set the port speed and duplex parameters on both ends of the connection.
Follow these steps to connect to 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX or 1000BASE-T devices:
Caution
To prevent electrostatic-discharge (ESD) damage, follow your normal board and component handling
procedures.
Step 1
When connecting to workstations, servers, routers, and Cisco IP Phones, connect a straight-through
cable to an RJ-45 connector on the front panel. (See Figure 2-10.) When connecting to switches or
repeaters, use a crossover cable. (See the “Cable and Adapter Specifications” section on page B-3 for
cable-pinout descriptions.)

When you connect to 1000BASE-T-compatible devices, be sure to use a twisted four-pair,
Category 5 cable.
Connect the other end of the cable to an RJ-45 connector on the other device. The port LED turns on
when both the blade switch and the connected device have established link.
The port LED is amber while Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) discovers the topology and searches for
loops. This takes about 30 seconds, and then the port LED turns green. If the port LED does not turn on,
the device at the other end might not be turned on, or there might be a cable problem or a problem with
the adapter installed in the attached device. See Chapter 3, “Troubleshooting,” for solutions to cabling
problems.

Chapter 2
Blade Switch Installation
Connecting to SFP Modules
You can use the mdix auto interface configuration command in the CLI to enable the automatic
medium-dependent interface crossover (auto-MDIX) feature. When the auto-MDIX feature is enabled,
the blade switch detects the required cable type for copper Ethernet connections and configures the
interfaces accordingly. Therefore, you can use either a crossover or a straight-through cable for
connections to a copper 10/100/1000 module port on the blade switch, regardless of the type of device
on the other end of the connection.
The auto-MDIX feature is enabled by default.
Step 3
Reconfigure and reboot the connected device if necessary.
Step 4
Repeat Steps 1 through 3 to connect each device.
Connecting to SFP Modules
This section describes how to connect to SFP modules. For instructions on how to connect to fiber-optic
SFP modules, see the “Connecting to Fiber-Optic SFP Modules” section.
For instructions about how to install or remove an SFP module, see the “Installing and Removing SFP
Modules” section on page 2-15.
Connecting to Fiber-Optic SFP Modules
Follow these steps to connect a fiber-optic cable to an SFP module:
Caution
Do not remove the rubber plugs from the SFP module port or the rubber caps from the fiber-optic cable
until you are ready to connect the cable. The plugs and caps protect the SFP module ports and cables
from contamination and ambient light.
Before connecting to the SFP module, be sure that you understand the port and cabling stipulations in
the “Installation Guidelines” section on page 2-3 and in the “SFP Module Slots” section on page 1-3.
See Appendix B, “Connector and Cable Specifications” for information about the LC on the SFP
module.
Step 1
Remove the rubber plugs from the module port and fiber-optic cable, and store them for future use.
Step 2
Insert one end of the fiber-optic cable into the SFP module port (see Figure 2-11).

Connector and Cable Specifications
This appendix describes the blade switch ports and the cables and adapters that you use to connect the
blade switch to other devices.
Connector Specifications
These sections describe the connectors used with the blade switch.
10/100/1000 Ports
The 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports on the blade switch use standard RJ-45 connectors. Figure B-1 shows
the pinout.
Note
You can use the mdix auto interface configuration command in the CLI to enable the automatic
medium-dependent interface crossover (auto-MDIX) feature. When the auto-MDIX feature is enabled,
the blade switch detects the required cable type for copper Ethernet connections and configures the
interfaces accordingly. Therefore, you can use either a crossover or a straight-through cable for
connections to a copper 10/100/1000 or 1000BASE-T SFP module port on the blade switch, regardless
of the type of device on the other end of the connection.
For configuration information for this feature, refer to the blade switch software configuration guide or
the command reference.
Connecting to 10BASE-T- and 100BASE-TX-Compatible Devices
When you connect the ports to 10BASE-T- and 100BASE-TX-compatible devices, such as servers,
workstations, and routers, you can use a two or four twisted-pair, straight-through cable wired for
10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX. Figure B-3 shows the two twisted-pair, straight-through cable
schematics. Figure B-5 shows the four twisted-pair, straight-through cable schematics.
When you connect the ports to 10BASE-T- and 100BASE-TX-compatible devices, such as switches or
repeaters, you can use a two or four twisted-pair, crossover cable. Figure B-4 shows the two twisted-pair,
crossover cable schematics. Figure B-6 shows the four twisted-pair, crossover cable schematics.
You can use Category 3, 4, or 5 cabling when connecting to 10BASE-T-compatible devices. You must
use Category 5 cabling when you connect to 100BASE-TX-compatible devices.

Console Port
The console port uses an 8-pin RJ-45 connector, which is described in Table B-1 and Table B-2. The
supplied RJ-45-to-DB-9 adapter cable is used to connect the console port of the blade switch to a console
PC. You need to provide a RJ-45-to-DB-25 female DTE adapter if you want to connect the blade switch
console port to a terminal. You can order a kit (part number ACS-DSBUASYN=) containing that adapter
from Cisco. For console port and adapter pinout information, see Table B-1 and Table B-2.

Crossover Cable and Adapter Pinouts
This section describes how to identify a crossover cable and also describes the adapter pinouts.
Identifying a Crossover Cable
To identify a crossover cable, compare the two modular ends of the cable. Hold the cable ends
side-by-side, with the tab at the back. The wire connected to the pin on the outside of the left plug should
be the same color as the wire connected to the pin on the outside of the right plug. (See Figure B-7.)

Configuring the Switch with the CLI-Based
Setup Program
This chapter provides a quick installation and setup procedure for the blade switch by using the
command-line interface (CLI).
Note
For detailed installation procedures, see Chapter 2, “Blade Switch Installation.” For product overview
information, see Chapter 1, “Product Overview.”
These are the major steps for a quick installation when using the CLI:
1.
Accessing the CLI Through the Console Port, page C-1
2.
Taking Out What You Need, page C-1
3.
Connecting to the Console Port, page C-2
4.
Completing the Initial Configuration, page C-4
Accessing the CLI Through the Console Port
You can access the CLI on a configured or unconfigured blade switch by connecting the console port of
the blade switch to the serial port on your PC or workstation and accessing the blade switch through a
Telnet session.
Taking Out What You Need
These items ship with your blade switch:
•
Console cable
•
Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3040 for FSC Getting Started Guide
•
Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information for the Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3040 for FSC
•
Registration card
Follow these steps:
1.
Unpack and remove the blade switch and the accessory kit from the shipping box.
2.
Return the packing material to the shipping container, and save it for future use.

Appendix C
Configuring the Switch with the CLI-Based Setup Program
Accessing the CLI Through the Console Port
Note
If the blade switches are ordered with the blade server, the blade switches are already installed, and no
unpacking is required. The unpacking procedure applies only if a blade switch is ordered separately.
Note
You need to provide the Category 5 straight-through cables to connect the blade switch ports to other
Ethernet devices.
Connecting to the Console Port
Obtain and make note of this information from your network administrator before you begin the blade
switch installation:
Step 1
•
Switch IP address
•
Subnet mask (IP netmask)
•
Default gateway (router)
•
Enable secret password (encrypted)
•
Enable password (not encrypted)
•
Telnet password
•
SNMP community strings (optional)
Connect one end of the console cable to the blade switch console port. Connect the other end of the cable
to the serial port of the computer that is running the terminal emulation application. (See Figure C-1.)
You can use the mdix auto interface configuration command in the CLI to enable the automatic
medium-dependent interface crossover (auto-MDIX) feature. When the auto-MDIX feature is enabled,
the blade switch detects the required cable type for copper Ethernet connections and configures the
interfaces accordingly. Therefore, you can use either a crossover or a straight-through cable for
connections to a copper 10/100/1000 or 1000BASE-T SFP module port on the blade switch, regardless
of the type of device on the other end of the connection.
For configuration information for this feature, refer to the blade switch software configuration guide or
the blade switch command reference.

Step 2
Start the terminal emulation session so that you can see the output display from the power-on self-test
(POST). The terminal-emulation software—a PC application such as Hyperterminal or
ProcommPlus—makes communication between the blade switch and your PC or terminal possible.
Configure the baud rate and character format of the PC or terminal to match these console port default
characteristics:
•
9600 baud
•
8 data bits
•
1 stop bit
•
No parity
•
None (flow control)
Step 3
Wait for the blade switch to complete the POST. It might take several minutes for the blade switch to
complete POST.
Step 4
Verify that POST has completed by confirming that the system and status LEDs remain green.
If the blade switch fails POST, the system LED turns amber. POST errors are usually fatal. Call Cisco
Systems immediately if your blade switch fails POST.

Completing the Initial Configuration
Follow these steps to complete the setup program and to create an initial configuration for the
blade switch.
Note
Step 1
For information about automatically configuring the blade switch, see the “Assigning the Switch
IP Address and Default Gateway” chapter in the blade switch configuration guide.
After you have pressed Enter or Return after the prompt to start the initial configuration setup program,
enter yes at these prompts:
Would you like to terminate autoinstall? [yes]: yes
--- System Configuration Dialog --Continue with configuration dialog? [yes/no]: yes
At any point you may enter a question mark '?' for help.
Use ctrl-c to abort configuration dialog at any prompt.
Default settings are in square brackets '[]'.
Basic management setup configures only enough connectivity
for management of the system, extended setup will ask you
to configure each interface on the system
Would you like to enter basic management setup? [yes/no]: yes
Step 2
Enter a hostname for the blade switch after the prompt, and press Return.
The hostname is limited to 20 characters. Do not use -n, where n is a number, as the last character in a
hostname for any blade switch.
Step 3
Enter an enable secret password, and press Return.
The password can be from 1 to 25 alphanumeric characters, can start with a number, is case sensitive,
allows spaces, but ignores leading spaces. The secret password is encrypted, and the enable password is
in plain text.
Step 4
