network requirements ranging from basic connectivity to multicast-enabled full streaming audio
and video applications for converged services such as Voice over IP (VoIP).
The FastIron compact switches come in a variety of models, providing an integral range of network
connectivity within the entire enterprise network. These switches provide high 10/100 port density
and Gigabit Ethernet uplinks in a compact form factor. The FastIron X Series compact switches
optionally provide up to two 10-Gigabit Ethernet uplinks.
The FastIron compact switch models are described below:
• Standard - Provides enterprise network connectivity and server farm support at the wiring
closet and edge of the network. When first shipped from the factory, standard models support
full Layer 2 and base Layer 3 Switching.
• Premium (PREM) – Premium devices support full Layer 2 Switching and full Layer 3
multiprotocol routing. All FES and FESX devices can be upgraded to full Layer 3 multiprotocol
routing, at which time they are considered to be premium devices. Note that all PREM6 models
are premium devices that support full Layer 2 switching and full Layer 3 multiprotocol routing
when shipped from the factory.
• 12GCF - Provides distribution and backbone connectivity at the Distribution and Core Layers of
the enterprise network. When first shipped from the factory, 12GCF models support full Layer
2 and base Layer 3 Switching.
• POE - Provides enterprise network connectivity and server farm support at the wiring closet
and edge of the network. Also provides electrical power over existing Ethernet cables,
supporting the need for integrated data, voice, and video applications. When first shipped from
the factory, POE models support full Layer 2 and base Layer 3 Switching.
• X Series - Provides enterprise network connectivity, delivering Gigabit over Copper (GoC) to the
desktop, within the enterprise Distribution Layer, and the service provider data center for
high-end servers, cluster computing, and network-attached storage devices. Also provides the
option of a one- or two-port 10-Gigabit Ethernet module, enabling connectivity within a
Metropolitan Area Network (MAN).
• IPv6 – Designed for service provider edge and aggregation deployment, IPv6 models support
the 128-bit addressing format and full Layer 2 and base Layer 3 switching. Premium models
provide additional support for full Layer 3 IPv4 routing protocols or full Layer 3 IPv4 and IPv6
routing protocols, depending on the DIP key (Layer 3 upgrade PROM) installed in the device.

Wireless applications
1
POE technology eliminates the need for an electrical outlet and dedicated UPS near IP powered
devices. With power sourcing devices, such as the FES2402-POE and FES4802-POE, power is
consolidated and centralized in the wiring closets, improving the reliability and resiliency of the
network. Because POE can provide power over Ethernet cable, power is continuous, even in the
event of a power failure.
For more information about POE and how to configure it on FES devices, refer to the Switch and
Router Installation and Basic Configuration Guide. For information about POE and how to configure
it on FESX devices, refer to the FastIron Configuration Guide.
Wireless applications
You can convert (upgrade) your FastIron Edge Switch to an IronPoint-FES device. Converting your
FES to an IronPoint–FES allows you to run a software image that contains wireless feature support.
To convert your FES to an IronPoint-FES, you need an EEPROM kit, part number FESWLAN. The kit
includes a Dual Inline Package (DIP) key, IronPoint-FES software, upgrade instructions, and other
items. Alternatively, you can order an IronPoint-FES with the EEPROM and wireless software already
installed.
You can convert the following FES devices to an IronPoint-FES:

FES 10/100 Mbps Ports
The 10/100 copper ports support automatic MDI or MDIX detection, and use auto-sensing and
auto-negotiating to determine the speed (10 Mbps or 100 Mbps) and mode (full-duplex or
half-duplex) of the port at the other end of the link and adjust port speed accordingly. In addition,
the 10/100 ports on the FES POE models can detect 802.3af compatible IP devices and provide
power accordingly.
For more information about automatic MDI or MDIX detection, refer to the Switch and Router
Installation and Basic Configuration Guide.
The 10/100 ports use RJ-45 connectors. For pinout information, refer to Chapter 6, “Hardware
Specifications”.
The 10/100 Mbps ports on FES devices provide status information using the LEDs listed in Table 2.
FES 10/100/1000 Mbps ports
The 10/100/1000 ports use auto-sensing and auto-negotiating to determine the speed (10 Mbps,
100 Mbps, or 1000 Mbps) and mode (full-duplex or half-duplex) of the port at the other end of the
link and adjust port speed accordingly. 10/100/1000 ports on the devices have the following
interfaces:
• RJ-45 copper interface for 10/100/1000Base-T – Cat5 copper cabling
• Mini-GBIC slot for CWDM, 1000Base-BX, LH, LX, or SX – fiber cabling
The copper ports support automatic Media Dependent Interface (MDI) and Media Dependent
Interface Crossover (MDIX) detection. Refer to the Switch and Router Installation and Basic
Configuration Guide for more information.
One port out of each pair of copper and fiber ports can be active at a time. For example, on the
FES12GCF, you can use either Copper port 10 or Fiber port 10, but not both at the same time. You
can use a combination of fiber and copper ports or all copper or all fiber ports, as needed. On the
FES, if you attach both the copper and fiber connectors for a port to the network, the fiber
connector takes precedence over the copper connector and will be the active connector for the
port. Insertion of a fiber mini-GBIC disables the copper connector. To enable a port’s copper
connector, you must remove the port’s fiber mini-GBIC.
The 10/100/1000 Mbps ports on the FES provide status information using the LEDs listed in
Table 2. The fiber connectors on the FES devices use the Lnk and Act LEDs located between the
mini-GBIC slots for the fiber ports. The copper connectors use triangular LEDs located in the upper
right and left corners of the upper Gigabit copper connector. The LED on the left side is for the
upper copper connector. The LED on the right side is for the lower copper connector.

10/100/1000 Mbps ports
The 10/100/1000 ports on the FastIron X Series compact switches use auto-sensing and
auto-negotiating to determine the speed (10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, or 1000 Mbps) and duplex mode
(full-duplex or half-duplex) of the port at the other end of the link and adjust port speed accordingly.
10/100/1000 ports on the devices support the interfaces listed in the section “Network
interfaces” on page 16.
The 10/100 and Gigabit Copper ports support auto MDI or MDIX detection. For more information
about this feature, refer to "Configuring MDI or MDIX" in the FastIron Configuration Guide.
100/1000 Mbps ports on Hybrid Fiber (HF) models
The 100/1000 ports on the hybrid fiber models (FESX424HF, FESX624HF, and
FESX624HFE-PREM6) are configurable to support the interfaces listed in the section “Network
interfaces” on page 16.
Support for 100BaseFX
The hybrid fiber models support the following types of SFPs for 100BaseFX:
•
•
•
•
Multimode – maximum distance is 2 kilometers
Bidirectional singlemode – maximum distance is 10 kilometers
Long Reach (LR) – maximum distance is 40 kilometers
Intermediate Reach (IR) – maximum distance is 15 kilometers
To enable support for 100BaseFX, you must enter the CLI command link-config gig fiber
100-base-fx ethernet <portnum>. For CLI command details, refer to the section “Enabling and
Disabling Support for 100BaseFX” in the FastIron Configuration Guide.
Combination ports
One port out of each pair of copper and fiber ports can be active at a time. For example, you can
use either copper port 2 or fiber port 2, but not both at the same time. You can use a combination
of fiber and copper ports or all copper or all fiber ports, as needed.
If you attach both the copper and fiber connectors for a port to the network, the fiber connectors
take precedence over the copper connectors. These ports support true media automatic detection,
meaning the device selects the fiber or copper connector based on link availability. If a fiber link
cannot be established, the device selects the copper media.
10-Gbps ports
The 10-Gigabit Ethernet module on a FastIron X Series compact switch is optional. If one is
installed on your device, it has either a one- or two-port optical interface for XFP MSA-compliant
10GBase-LR, 10GBase-SR, or 10GBase-ER – fiber cabling. If your device does not include a 10-GbE
module, you can optionally install one. Refer to “Installing or replacing a 10-Gigabit Ethernet
module” on page 68. For more details, follow these pointers:
• IPv4 (FESX4) devices optionally support one or two 10-Gigabit Ethernet uplink ports for
10-Gigabit Small Form Factor Pluggable (XFP) MSA-compliant optical transceivers
• IPv6 (FESX6) devices optionally support two 10-Gigabit Ethernet uplink ports for 10-Gigabit
Small Form Factor Pluggable (XFP) MSA-compliant optical transceivers
The 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports use 10-Gigabit Small Form Factor Pluggable (XFP) MSA-compliant
transceivers.

Power supplies
Each FastIron compact switch comes with one alternating-current (AC) or direct-current (DC) power
supply, depending on how it was ordered from the factory. All models have two power supply slots,
enabling you to install a second power supply for redundancy. Direct-current (DC) supplies are
available for some devices, in which you can use any combination of AC and DC supplies in the
same device. The following table lists the power supplies that may be installed in a FastIron
compact switch.
Table 5 and Table 6 show which Brocade power supply can be installed on each Brocade FastIron
compact product.
NOTE
You can interchange power supplies, but you must adhere to the compatibility matrix shown in the

redundant power supplies, you can remove one of the supplies without interrupting operation. The
remaining supply provides enough power for all the ports.
The following sections provide further details about the power supplies for the FastIron family of
switches:

POE power supply precautions
The following precautions apply to FastIron POE compact switches:
• A device with dual power supplies may not provide redundancy, depending on how much power
the POE ports are consuming. For more information, refer to “What happens when a FastIron
POE power supply fails” on page 20.
• If your device has 48 ports and two power supplies, and the POE ports are consuming more
than 480 watts of power, a single power supply failure will cause both power supplies to shut
down.
• If your device has 48 ports and only one power supply, and each POE-enabled port needs 15.4
watts, then a maximum of 31 ports can supply power to connected devices.
• If your device has 48 ports and only one power supply, and the power consuming devices
connected to POE-enabled ports consume a total of more than 480 watts of power, the power
supply may shut down.
NOTE
The system powers on as many POE ports as the power supplies can handle. The system
calculates the maximum number of POE ports it can support based on the number of power
supplies installed. POE ports are enabled based on their priority settings. Keep in mind that
the system will reserve the maximum configured power per POE-enabled port, even if the POE
power-consuming device is drawing less power.
AC power supplies
Figure 14 shows a rear view of a FastIron Compact device containing one AC power supply. The

About redundant power supplies and power supply failure
A FastIron compact switch with redundant power supplies can maintain full operation when one
power supply fails. Power supply failure can be a failure of the supply itself or the office power grid
connected to the power supply.
What happens when a FastIron (non-POE) power supply fails
In a FastIron compact switch (non-POE) with redundant power supplies, power consumption is
equally distributed between both power supplies, within a certain percentage depending on power
load or power supply type. However, when one power supply fails, the power load is carried by the
remaining power supply.
What happens when a FastIron POE power supply fails
A FastIron POE compact switch with dual power supplies may not provide redundancy, depending
on how much power the POE ports are consuming. In a POE device with redundant power supplies,
power consumption is equally distributed (within a certain percentage depending on power load or
power supply type) between both power supplies. The power supplies provide power to both the
system and POE components. Therefore, a power supply failure can affect the operation of the
entire device and not just POE ports.
NOTE
If a switch has 48 ports and two power supplies, and the POE ports are consuming more than 480
watts of power, a single power supply failure will cause both power supplies to shut down.
20
Brocade FastIron Compact Switch Hardware Installation Guide
53-1001724-02

If a power supply fails and the system is left with less than the minimum required power, the
remaining power supply will go into overload. Several things can happen with a power supply failure
in a FastIron POE switch. The output voltage of the remaining good power supply will likely drop as
it tries unsuccessfully to generate more power than it is capable of. The system will react to a drop
in voltage by increasing the current draw. POE ports will start to shut down due to over-current
protection or under-voltage protection, whichever occurs first. There is no particular order in which
the POE ports will shut down, as this will occur in hardware and not in software.
After a power loss, if the system is left with less than the minimum number of power supplies
required for normal operation, the system will be left in an unknown state. At this point, manual
recovery is required (i.e. restore power and power cycle the switch).
Cooling system and fans
This section describes the fans in the FastIron compact switches.
FES fans
The FES cooling fans cool the CPU, main memory, and voltage regulators. The fans use either a
push or pull configuration to move the air from the left side of the device to the right side of the
device.
The fans in the FES operate at a steady speed, and do not support multiple fan speeds.
FastIron X Series fans
The FastIron X Series cooling fans cool the CPU, main memory, and voltage regulators. The fans
use either a push or pull configuration to move the air from the left side of the device to the right
side of the device.
The fans in the 24-port FastIron X Series switches operate at a single speed and do not support
multiple fan speeds.
The fans in the 48-port FastIron X Series switches include two three-speed fans that operate at low
speed, then adjust based on the ambient temperature and configured or default temperature
thresholds. Both fans operate simultaneously at the same speed. If one fan fails, it does not affect
the operation of the other fan.
The fans can operate at speeds of low, medium, and high. The system uses a fan speed switch and
a default or configured temperature threshold associated with it to determine at which speed the
fan should operate. If desired, you can change the settings of the temperature thresholds
associated with fan speed switches. For more information, refer to “Managing temperature settings
and fan speed on FastIron X Series compact switches” on page 56.

Installation precautions
Power precautions
CAUTION
Use a separate branch circuit for each AC power cord, which provides redundancy in case one of
the circuits fails.
CAUTION
Ensure that the device does not overload the power circuits, wiring, and over-current protection.
To determine the possibility of overloading the supply circuits, add the ampere (amp) ratings of all
devices installed on the same circuit as the device. Compare this total with the rating limit for the
circuit. The maximum ampere ratings are usually printed on the devices near the input power
connectors.
CAUTION
All devices with DC power supplies are intended for installation in restricted access areas only. A
restricted access area is where access can be gained only by service personnel through the use
of a special tool, lock and key, or other means of security, and is controlled by the authority
responsible for the location.
CAUTION
For the DC input circuit to a FES, FESX, or FWSX (DC power supply part number RPS5DC and
RPS-X424-DC), make sure there is a 10-amp listed circuit breaker, minimum -48VDC, double
pole, on the input to the terminal block. The input wiring for connection to the product should be
Listed copper wire, 14 AWG, marked VW-1, and rated 90 degrees Celsius.
CAUTION
For the DC input circuit to the system (DC power supply part number RPSDC-X424-POE), make
sure there is a Listed 30 amp circuit breaker, minimum -48Vdc, double pole, on the input to the
terminal block. The input wiring for connection to the product should be Listed copper wire, 10
AWG, marked VW-1, and rated minimum 90 degrees celcius.
CAUTION
Make sure you insert the power supply right-side up. It is possible to insert the supply upside

Verifying proper operation
Verifying proper operation
After you have installed any redundant power supplies, verify that the device is working properly by
plugging it into a power source and verifying that it passes its self test.
If your device has more than one power supply installed, repeat this procedure for each power
supply.
1. Connect the power cord supplied with the device to the power connector on the power supply
on the rear of the device.
2. Insert the other end into a properly grounded electrical outlet.
3. For the FES2402-POE and FES4802-POE with power supply model RPS8, turn the power
switch to the ON position.
4. The non-POE devices use power supply model RPS5, which do not have power switches. They
power on when you connect a power cord to the device and to a power source.
If your installation requires a different power cord than that supplied with the device, make
sure you obtain a power cord displaying the mark of the safety agency that defines the
regulations for power cords in your country. The mark is your assurance that the power cord
can be used safely with the device.
5. Verify that the LED for each power supply is a solid green.
6. Verify proper operation by observing the LEDs.
All the port LEDs should flash momentarily, usually in sequence, while the device performs
diagnostics. After the diagnostics are complete, the LEDs will be dark except for the ones that
are attached by cables to other devices. If the links on these cables are good and the
connected device is powered on, the link LEDs will light.
For more details on specific LED conditions after system start-up, refer to the section below,
“Observing the power status LEDs” on page 34 and Chapter 6, “Hardware Specifications”.

The software regularly polls the hardware for power status information. You can display the status
information from any management session. In addition, the software automatically generates a
Syslog message and SNMP trap if a status change occurs.
Attaching a PC or terminal
To assign an IP address, you must have access to the Command Line Interface (CLI). The CLI is a
text-based interface that can be accessed through a direct serial connection to the device and
through Telnet connections. The CLI is described in detail in the Brocade Switch and Router
Command Line Interface Reference.
You need to assign an IP address using the CLI. You can access the CLI by attaching a serial cable
to the Console port. After you assign an IP address, you can access the system through Telnet, the
Web Management Interface, or IronView Network Manager.
Perform the following tasks to attach a management station using the serial port.
1. Connect a PC or terminal to the serial port of the system using a straight-through cable. The
serial port has a male DB-9 connector.
NOTE
You need to run a terminal emulation program on the PC.
2. Open the terminal emulation program and set the session parameters as follows:
•
•
•
•
•
Baud: 9600 bps
Data bits: 8
Parity: None
Stop bits: 1
Flow control: None
When you establish the serial connection to the system, press Enter to display the CLI prompt
in the terminal emulation window. For example:
• FastIron>
• FastIron-PREM>
If you see one of these prompts, you are now connected to the system and can proceed to
“Assigning permanent passwords” on page 39.
You can customize the prompt by changing the system name. Refer to the FastIron
Configuration Guide (for FastIron X Series compact devices) or the Switch and Router
Installation and Basic Configuration Guide (for FES devices).

Attaching a PC or terminal
Troubleshooting the serial connection
When you establish the serial connection to the system and the CLI prompt does not appear,
perform the following tasks.
1. Make sure the cable is securely connected to your PC and to the Brocade system.
2. Check the settings in your terminal emulation program. In addition to the session settings
listed above, make sure the terminal emulation session is running on the same serial port you
attached to the Brocade system.
The EIA or TIA 232 serial communication port serves as a connection point for management by a
PC or SNMP workstation. Brocade switches come with a standard male DB-9 connector, shown in
Figure 20.

Assigning permanent passwords
By default, the CLI is not protected by passwords. To secure CLI access, Brocade strongly
recommends assigning passwords.
NOTE
You cannot assign a password using the Web Management Interface. You can assign passwords
using IronView Network Manager if an enable password for a Super User has been configured on the
device.
The CLI contains the following access levels:
• User EXEC – The level you enter when you first start a CLI session. At this level, you can view
some system information but you cannot configure system or port parameters.
• Privileged EXEC – This level is also called the Enable level and can be secured by a password.
You can perform tasks such as manage files on the flash module, save the system
configuration to flash, and clear caches at this level.

Assigning permanent passwords
• CONFIG – The configuration level. This level lets you configure the system IP address and
configure switching and routing features. To access the CONFIG mode, you must already be
logged into the Privileged level of the EXEC mode.
You can set the following levels of Enable passwords:
• Super User – Allows complete read-and-write access to the system. This is generally for system
administrators and is the only password level that allows you to configure passwords.
NOTE
You must set a super user password before you can set other types of passwords.
• Port Configuration – Allows read-and-write access for specific ports but not for global
(system-wide) parameters.
• Read Only – Allows access to the Privileged EXEC mode and CONFIG mode but only with read
access.
Complete the following steps to set passwords.
1. At the opening CLI prompt, enter the following command to change to the Privileged level of the
EXEC mode.
FastIron> enable
2. Access the CONFIG level of the CLI by entering the following command.
FastIron# configure terminal
FastIron(config)#
3. Enter the following command to set the super-user password.
FastIron(config)# enable super-user-password <text>
NOTE
You must set the super-user password before you can set other types of passwords.
4. Enter the following commands to set the port configuration and read-only passwords.
FastIron(config)# enable port-config-password <text>
FastIron(config)# enable read-only-password <text>
NOTE
If you forget your super-user password, refer to “Recovering from a lost password” on page 40.
Syntax: enable super-user-password | read-only-password | port-config-password <text>
Passwords can be up to 32 characters long.
Recovering from a lost password
By default, the CLI does not require passwords. However, if someone has configured a password for
the device but the password has been lost, you can regain super-user access to the device using
the following procedure.
NOTE
Recovery from a lost password requires direct access to the serial port and a system reset.
Complete the following steps to recover a lost password.

Brocade FastIron Compact Switch Hardware Installation Guide
53-1001724-02
Configuring IP addresses
3
1. Start a CLI session over the serial interface to the Brocade device.
2. Reboot the device.
3. While the system is booting, before the initial system prompt appears, enter b to enter the boot
monitor mode.
4. Enter no password at the prompt. (You cannot abbreviate this command.)
5. Enter boot system flash primary at the prompt. This command causes the device to bypass the
system password check.
6. After the console prompt reappears, assign a new password.
Configuring IP addresses
You must configure at least one IP address using the serial connection to the CLI before you can
manage the system using the other management interfaces. In addition, Brocade routers require
an IP subnet address for the subnet in which you plan to place them in your network.
IPv4 devices
Brocade IPv4 devices support both classical IP network masks (Class A, B, and C subnet masks,
and so on) and Classless Interdomain Routing (CIDR) network prefix masks:
• To enter a classical network mask, enter the mask in IP address format. For example, enter
“209.157.22.99 255.255.255.0” for an IP address with a Class-C subnet mask.
• To enter a prefix number for a network mask, enter a forward slash ( / ) and the number of bits
in the mask immediately after the IP address. For example, enter “209.157.22.99/24” for an
IP address that has a network mask with 24 significant (“mask”) bits.
By default, the CLI displays network masks in classical IP address format (for example,
255.255.255.0). You can change the display to the prefix format. Refer to the FastIron
Configuration Guide for more information.
IPv4 devices running layer 3 software
Before attaching equipment to a Brocade router, you must assign an interface IP address to the
subnet on which the router will be located. You must use the serial connection to assign the first IP
address. For subsequent addresses, you also can use the CLI through Telnet or the Web
Management Interface.
By default, you can configure up to 24 IP interfaces on each port, virtual interface, and loopback
interface. You can increase this amount to up to 64 IP subnet addresses per port by increasing the
size of the subnet-per-interface table. Refer to the FastIron Configuration Guide for more
information.
The following procedure shows how to add an IPv4 address and mask to a router port.

Connecting network devices
Connecting to ethernet or fast ethernet hubs
For copper connections to Ethernet hubs, a 10/100BaseTX or 1000BaseT switch, or another
Brocade device, a crossover cable is required (Figure 22 and Figure 23). If the hub is equipped with
an uplink port, it will require a straight-through cable instead of a crossover cable.
NOTE
The 802.3ab standard (automatic MDI or MDIX detection) calls for automatic negotiation of the
connection between two 1000Base-T ports. Therefore, a crossover cable may not be required; a
straight-through cable may work as well. For more information about this feature, refer to the
FastIron Configuration Guide (FastIron X Series Devices) or the Switch and Router Installation and
Basic Configuration Guide (FES devices).

100Base-TX support on 1000Base-TX SFP modules
You can configure a 1000Base-TX SFP (part number E1MG-TX) to operate at a speed of 100 Mbps.
To enable support, you must enter the CLI command 100-tx at the Interface level of the CLI. For CLI
command details, refer to the section “Enabling and Disabling Support for 100Base-TX” in the
FastIron Configuration Guide.
NOTE
This module requires a Cat5 cable and uses an RJ45 connector. Hotswap is supported for this
module when it is configured in 100M mode.
Connecting to workstations, servers, or routers
Straight-through UTP cabling is required for direct UTP attachment to workstations, servers, or
routers using network interface cards (NICs).
Fiber cabling is required for direct attachment to Gigabit NICs or switches and routers through fiber
ports. Refer to “Connecting a network device to a fiber port” on page 47.
Automatic MDI or MDIX detection
All 10/100 and Gigabit Ethernet Copper ports on the Brocade FastIron devices support automatic
Media Dependent Interface (MDI) and Media Dependent Interface Crossover (MDIX) detection. This
feature is enabled on all 10/100 and Gigabit copper ports by default. For each port, you can
disable auto MDI or MDIX, designate the port as an MDI port, or designate the port as an MDIX
port.
For more information about this feature and how configure it, refer to the FastIron Configuration
Guide or the Switch and Router Installation and Basic Configuration Guide.
Connecting a network device to a fiber port
For direct attachment from the Brocade device to a Gigabit NIC, switch, or router, fiber cabling with
an LC connector is required.
NOTE
All physical IP interfaces on FastIron X Series Layer 3 devices share the same MAC address. For this
reason, if more than one connection is made between two devices, one of which is a FastIron X
Series Layer 3 device, Brocade recommends the use of virtual interfaces. It is not recommended to
connect two or more physical IP interfaces between two routers.
To connect the Brocade device to another network device using a fiber port, you must do the
following:
• Install a fiber optic module (SFP transceiver or mini-GBIC for Gigabit Ethernet ports, or
XFP-MSA transceiver for 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports)
• Cable the fiber optic module
The following sections provide information about performing these tasks.
Brocade FastIron Compact Switch Hardware Installation Guide

Connecting network devices
Installing a fiber optic module
You must install a fiber optic module (SFP or XFP transceiver) in each Gigabit Ethernet and
10-Gigabit Ethernet fiber port you want to use.
You can install a new fiber optic module in a port while the FastIron Compact device is powered on
and running.
Before installing one of these modules into the port, have the following on hand:
• An ESD wrist strap with a plug for connection to a metal surface.
DANGER
For safety reasons, the ESD wrist strap should contain a series 1 meg ohm resistor.
Complete the following tasks to install a fiber optic module.
1. Put on the ESD wrist strap and ground yourself by attaching the clip end to a metal surface
(such as an equipment rack) to act as ground.
2. Remove the new module from its protective packaging.
3. Gently insert the fiber optic module into the port until the module clicks into place. The module
is keyed to prevent incorrect insertion.
Cabling a fiber optic module
Complete the following tasks to cable a fiber optic module.
1. Remove the protective covering from the fiber-optic port connectors and store the covering for
future use.
2. Before cabling a fiber optic module, Brocade strongly recommends cleaning the cable
connectors and the port connectors. For more information, refer to“Cleaning the fiber-optic
connectors” on page 48.
3. Gently insert the cable connectors (a tab on each connector should face upward) into the port
connectors until the tabs lock into place.
4. Observe the link and active LEDs to determine if the network connections are functioning
properly. For more information about the LED indicators, refer toTable 10 on page 50.
Cleaning the fiber-optic connectors
To avoid problems with the connection between the fiber optic module (SFP (mini-GBIC) or XFP) and
the fiber cable connectors, Brocade strongly recommends cleaning both connectors each time you
disconnect and reconnect them. In particular, dust can accumulate in the connectors and cause
problems such as reducing the optic launch power.
To clean the fiber cable connectors, Brocade recommends using the fiber-optic reel-type cleaner
that shipped with your FastIron chassis. You can also purchase this type of cleaner from the
following Website.
http://www.fisfiber.com/Home_Page.asp
When not using an SFP or XFP connector, make sure to keep the protective covering on.

Managing FES temperature settings
This section describes how to display temperature settings on the FES and how to change the
temperature warning level, shutdown level, and polling interval.
About the temperature sensor on a FES
The FES compact switch comes with a built-in temperature sensor. The temperature sensor causes
the device to generate a Syslog message and SNMP trap if the temperature exceeds a specified
warning level or shutdown level.
Brocade FastIron Compact Switch Hardware Installation Guide
53-1001724-02
53
4
Managing FES temperature settings
The software reads the temperature sensor according to the device poll time, which is 60 seconds
by default. If the temperature equals or exceeds the shutdown temperature for five consecutive
polls of the temperature by the software, the software will shut down the device to prevent
damage.
You can use the CLI or Web Management Interface to do the following:
• Display the temperature of the device
• Change the warning and shutdown temperature levels
• Change the device poll time
Default temperature warning and shutdown thresholds
The FES compact switch has default settings for temperature warning and shutdown levels.
Therefore, no initial configuration is necessary. If desired, you can change the settings.
The default temperature warning and shutdown thresholds are shown in Table 11.
TABLE 11
Default temperature thresholds for FES switches
Default Warning Threshold
Default Shutdown Threshold
65C
75C
If desired, you can re-configure the temperature warning and shutdown settings once the new
software is loaded. To change the warning threshold, refer to “Changing the temperature warning
level on a FES” on page 55. To change the shutdown threshold, refer to “Changing the temperature
shutdown level on a FES” on page 55.
Displaying the temperature on a FES
By default, the software polls the temperature sensor every 60 seconds to obtain the current
temperature of the device. This poll rate is controlled by the device poll time, which also controls
how often the software polls other system components.
To display the temperature of the device, enter the following command at any level of the CLI.
FastIron>show chassis
power supply 1 ok
power supply 2 not present
power supply 1 to 2 from left to right
fan ok
Current temperature : 41.0 C degrees
Warning level : 64 C degrees, shutdown level : 80 C degrees
Syntax: show chassis
Displaying temperature messages on the FES
The software sends a Syslog message and an SNMP trap if the temperature crosses the warning or
shutdown thresholds. The following methods describe how to view the system log on the device. If
you have configured the device to use a Syslog server or SNMP trap receiver, refer the
documentation for the server or receiver.
To display the system log, enter the following command at any CLI level.

The default warning temperature is 45Celsius. The default shutdown temperature is 55 Celsius.
These default temperatures refer to the exhaust side of the device.
Changing the temperature warning level on a FES
The FES sends a warning message whenever the device’s internal temperature reaches the default
or administratively-configured warning temperature. To change the temperature at which the
device will send a warning, enter the following commands at the Global CONFIG level of the CLI.
FastIron(config)#temperature warning 67
FastIron(config)#write memory
FastIron(config)#exit
FastIron#reload
NOTE
You must save the configuration and reload the software to place the change into effect.
Syntax: temperature warning <warning-temperature>
The <warning-temperature> can be 0 – 125C. The default value is 65C.
Changing the temperature shutdown level on a FES
If the temperature equals or exceeds the shutdown temperature for five consecutive polls of the
temperature by the software, the software will shut down the device to prevent damage. To change
the temperature at which the device will shut down, enter the following commands at the Global
CONFIG level of the CLI.
FastIron(config)#temperature shutdown 67
FastIron(config)#write memory
FastIron(config)#exit
FastIron#reload
NOTE
You must save the configuration and reload the software to place the change into effect.

Managing temperature settings and fan speed on FastIron X Series compact switches
The <shutdown-temperature> can be 0 – 125C. The default value is 75C.
Changing the temperature polling interval
The software reads the temperature sensor and polls other hardware sensors according to the
value set for the device poll time, which is 60 seconds by default. You can change the device poll
time using the CLI.
To change the device poll time, enter a command such as the following at the global CONFIG level
of the CLI.
FastIron(config)#chassis poll-time 200
Syntax: chassis poll-time <value>
The <value> can be 0 – 65535.
Managing temperature settings and fan speed on
FastIron X Series compact switches
This section describes how to manage the temperature and fan speed settings on FastIron X Series
compact switches (FESX and FESX-E).
Temperature sensors
The FastIron X Series compact switches have two temperature sensors; one at the air intake, and
the other at the exhaust. The software reads the temperature sensors according to the device poll
time, which is 60 seconds by default.
If the temperature equals or exceeds the shutdown temperature for five minutes or for five
consecutive polls of the temperature by the software (depending on the software version running
on your device), the software will either reset and reload the software or shut down the device to
prevent damage.
Compact switches with 48 ports use the exhaust-side temperature sensor against the configured
or default temperature threshold to determine at which speed the fans should operate. Depending
on the temperature readings, the system can do the following:
•
•
•
•
•
Leave the fan speed as is
Increase the fan speed
Decrease the fan speed
Shut down a module to prevent damage
The switch will automatically reset and reload the software when the internal temperature
reaches or exceeds the shutdown level for five minutes.
Fan speed
The fans in the 24-port FastIron X Series compact switches operate at a steady speed and do not
support multiple fan speeds.
56
Brocade FastIron Compact Switch Hardware Installation Guide
53-1001724-02
Managing temperature settings and fan speed on FastIron X Series compact switches
4
Compact switches with 48 ports have two three-speed fans that operate at low speed, then adjust
based on the ambient temperature and configured or default temperature thresholds. Both fans
operate simultaneously at the same speed. If one fan fails, it does not affect the operation of the
other fan.
The fans in the 48-port switches can operate at speeds of low, medium, and high. The system uses
a fan speed switch and a default or configured temperature threshold associated with it to
determine at which speed a fan should operate. Fan speed switches are as follows:
•
•
•
•
slow-to-medium
medium-to-slow
medium-to-fast
fast-to-medium
If desired, you can change the settings of the temperature thresholds associated with fan speeds.
Refer to “Changing the temperature threshold for a fan speed switch” on page 57.
Temperature thresholds
FastIron X Series compact switches with 48 ports have default settings for temperature thresholds
associated with fan speed switches. Therefore, no initial configuration is necessary. If desired, you
can change the settings.
NOTE
This section applies to FastIron X Series compact switches with 48 ports. It does not apply to
switches with 24 ports, since the fans in the 24-port switches operate at single speed.
By default, the system uses the temperature thresholds shown in Table 12.

Changing the temperature threshold for a fan speed switch
To change the temperature threshold for a fan speed switch, enter a command such as the
following.
FastIron#temp fan-speed slow-to-medium 30
This command causes the system to switch the fan speed from slow to medium if the system
temperature reading exceeds 30 C.
Syntax: temp fan-speed <speed-switch> <threshold-value>
where:
<speed-switch> can be one of the following:

The <value> can be 0 – 125C. Default values are listed in Table 13.
Changing the shutdown temperature
You can change the shutdown temperature on a FESX or FESX-E switch by changing the
temperature for the highest fan speed.
Changing the shutdown temperature on a 24-port switch
To change the shutdown temperature on a FastIron X Series 24-port switch, enter a command such
as the following.
FastIron(config)#fan-threshold mp speed-1 75
Syntax: [no] fan-threshold mp speed-1 <shutdown-temperature>

Enter 0 – 125C for <shutdown-temperature>, which is the high mark on the last (highest) speed
supported on the device.
Changing the shutdown temperature on a 48-port switch
To change the shutdown temperature on a FastIron X Series 48-port switch, enter a command such
as the following.
FastIron(config)#fan-threshold mp speed-3 35 85
Syntax: [no] fan-threshold mp <highest-speed> <low-temperature-mark>
<high-temperature-mark>
Enter “speed-3” for <highest-speed>, which is the highest fan speed available on a 48-port switch.
If the switch has a fan speed higher than 3, enter that fan speed.
For the <low-temperature-mark> and <high-temperature-mark> parameters, you can specify any
temperature in Centigrade. However, when changing low and high temperature thresholds for a fan
speed, remember that the low temperature threshold of a higher fan speed must be lower than the
high temperature threshold of the lower fan speed. Brocade establishes this guideline to ensure
the fan speed stability.
For example, if you are changing the temperature thresholds for the management module’s high
and medium-high fan speeds, the software will accept the following values because the low
temperature threshold for the high speed (67 C) is lower than the high temperature threshold (72
C) for the medium-high speed.
Fan Speed
Low Temperature Threshold
High Temperature Threshold

Changing the device polling interval
The software reads the temperature sensor and polls other hardware sensors according to the
value set for the device poll time, which is 60 seconds by default. You can change the device poll
time using the CLI.
To change the device poll time, enter a command such as the following at the global CONFIG level
of the CLI.
FastIron(config)#chassis poll-time 200
Syntax: chassis poll-time <value>
The <value> can be 0 – 65535 (seconds). The default value is 60 seconds.

You can remove a fiber SFP (also called a mini-GBIC) or an XFP from a port while the FastIron
Compact device is powered on and running.
Before removing a fiber optic module, have the following on hand:
• An ESD wrist strap with a plug for connection to the ESD connector on the FastIron Compact
device.
DANGER
For safety reasons, the ESD wrist strap should contain a series 1 meg ohm resistor.
• The protective covering that you removed from the fiber optic module when you initially
installed the module.
To remove a fiber optic module from a Gigabit Ethernet or 10-Gigabit Ethernet port , complete the
following steps.
1. Put on the ESD wrist strap and ground yourself by attaching the clip end to a metal surface
(such as an equipment rack).
2. Disconnect the fiber cable connector from the port connector.
3. Insert the protective covering into the port connectors.
4. Pull the fiber optic module out of the port by pulling the bail latch forward, away from the front
panel of the module. This unlocks the module from the front panel.

NOTE
The bail latch may be attached to either the top or the bottom of the mini-GBIC.
5. Grasping the bail latch, pull the fiber optic module out of the port.
6. Store the fiber optic module in a safe, static-free place or in an anti-static bag.

Installing a new fiber optic module
You must install a fiber optic module (SFP or XFP transceiver) in each Gigabit Ethernet and
10-Gigabit Ethernet fiber port you want to use.
You can install a new fiber optic module in a port while the FastIron Compact device is powered on
and running.
Before installing one of these modules into the port, have the following on hand:
• An ESD wrist strap with a plug for connection to a metal surface.
DANGER
For safety reasons, the ESD wrist strap should contain a series 1 meg ohm resistor.
Complete the following tasks to install a fiber optic module.
1. Put on the ESD wrist strap and ground yourself by attaching the clip end to a metal surface
(such as an equipment rack) to act as ground.
2. Remove the new module from its protective packaging.
3. Gently insert the fiber optic module into the port until the module clicks into place. The module
is keyed to prevent incorrect insertion.
Cabling a fiber optic module
Complete the following steps to cable a fiber optic module.
1. Remove the protective covering from the fiber-optic port connectors and store the covering for
future use.
2. Before cabling a fiber optic module, Brocade strongly recommends cleaning the cable
connectors and the port connectors. Refer to “Cleaning the fiber optic connectors” on page 73.
3. Gently insert the cable connectors (a tab on each connector should face upward) into the port
connectors until the tabs lock into place.
4. Observe the link and active LEDs to determine if the network connections are functioning
properly. For more information about the LED indicators, refer to Table 10 on page 50.
Cleaning the fiber optic connectors
To avoid problems with the connection between the fiber optic module (SFP (mini-GBIC) or XFP) and
the fiber cable connectors, Brocade strongly recommends cleaning both connectors each time you
disconnect and reconnect them. In particular, dust can accumulate in the connectors and cause
problems such as reducing the optic launch power.
To clean the fiber cable connectors, Brocade recommends using the fiber-optic reel-type cleaner
that shipped with your FastIron chassis. You can also purchase this type of cleaner from the
following Website.
http://www.fisfiber.com/Home_Page.asp
When not using an SFP or XFP connector, make sure to keep the protective covering on.

13. Install the software as instructed in the following section.
Software installation
Use the instructions in this section to install the software after installing a Layer 3 upgrade DIP key.
Before installing the software
Note the following prior to installing the software:
• The device must have an IP address. If the device does not already have an IP address,
configure one by entering the ip address <ip-addr> <ip-mask> or ipv6 address
<ipv6-prefix>/<prefix-length> command at the global CONFIG level of the CLI for Layer 2
images, or at the Interface level of the CLI for base Layer 3 and full Layer 3 images. For
detailed instructions, refer to the FastIron Configuration Guide.
• If an incorrect DIP key or no DIP key is installed, the switch will boot up on the Layer 2 or base
Layer 3 software image. It will not boot up on the full Layer 3 software image.
• Except for IPv6 host and management features, the DIP key part numbers FESX624-L3U-IPV6
and FESX648-L3U-IPV6 require software release 04.1.00 or higher to run the supported IPv6
routing protocols and features.
• Before removing a DIP key (if you are not going to replace it with another one), Brocade
recommends that you first install the Layer 2 or base Layer 3 software image, since the system
will not boot up on the full Layer 3 software image after a DIP key is removed. If desired, prior
to removing the DIP key, enter the boot system tftp CLI command into the startup configuration
to allow the system to boot the Layer 2 or base Layer 3 software image from a TFTP server.
Alternatively, you could enter the boot system tftp command from the boot monitor.
NOTE
To boot the device from a TFTP server through a fiber connection, use the CLI command boot
system tftp <ip-address> <filename> fiber-port.

Detailed procedures
Installing the software
Complete the following steps to install the software.
1. Copy the Layer 3 software from kp.foundrynet.com onto a TFTP server to which the device has
network access. If you are not sure which software image file is the one you want to install,
refer to the release notes.
2. If you normally boot the device from the primary or secondary flash, continue with this step.
Otherwise, skip to step 5.
Enter the following command at the Privileged EXEC level of the CLI to copy the Layer 3
software from the TFTP server onto the device.
copy tftp flash <ip-addr> <file-name> primary | secondary
where <ip-addr> specifies the IP address of the TFTP server, <file-name> is the system
software image file name, and primary or secondary specifies the flash area. For example, to
copy software release FER03000.bin into the primary flash, enter the following command.
FES4802# copy tftp flash 209.1.4.69 FER03000.bin primary
The CLI will display a message showing that it is erasing the current contents of the flash area
you specified. The CLI will then display a message when the copy is complete. If you receive an
error message instead, refer to the “Diagnostic Error Codes and Remedies for TFTP Transfers”
section of the “Updating Software Images and Configuration Files” chapter in the FastIron
Configuration Guide.
3. Verify that the Layer 3 software is present in the flash area you specified by entering the
following command.
show flash
The “Compressed Pri Code size” or “Compressed Sec Code size” line should list the software. If
the software is not correct, perform step 2 again.
4. Enter the following command at the Privileged EXEC level of the CLI to reboot the device using
the new software: boot system flash primary | secondary
where primary or secondary specifies the flash area. Go to step 6.
5. If you normally boot the device from a TFTP or BootP server, enter the following command at
the Privileged EXEC level of the CLI to reboot the device using the new software:
boot system tftp | bootp
NOTE
If you are booting the device from a TFTP server through a fiber connection, use the CLI
command boot system tftp <ip-address> <filename> fiber-port.
6. Verify that the device booted using the Layer 3 software by observing the boot messages. The
“SW” area lists the software running on the device. You also can display this information by
entering the show version command.
