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

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.

Switching Module Features
Each switching module draws its power from the 42 V supplied on the backplane with local DC/DC
power converters and regulators.
The control processor on the switching module provides power-on, offline, and online diagnostics. The
control processor can be used to configure devices on the switching module and to gather statistical data
from each port.
The control processor can determine which slot it is plugged into, and it can monitor its DC/DC power
source and temperature. The control processor signals the supervisor module and displays an alarm on
its front panel when a problem is detected.
The front panel on the switching module provides basic status information, such as power-on, self-test
running, self-test passed, alarm, and ready.
The binary image for the switching module is downloaded from the supervisor module. Prior to the
image download, the control processor on the switching module runs from code stored on its local
CompactFlash card.
Note
Routine software downloads are not required.
The integrated supervisor module can force a reset on the switching module and controls whether power
is applied to the switching module.
If a single component or a set of components on the switching module fails, this does not disable other
switching modules if that is the only failure in the system.
Each switching module has a hardware watchdog timer to detect most component failures. The watchdog
timer resets the card if it is not serviced periodically.

Each module draws power from the 42 V supplied on the backplane with local DC/DC power converters
and regulators.
The control processor on the module provides power-on, offline, and online diagnostics. The control
processor can be used to configure devices on the switching module and to gather statistical data from
each port.
The control processor monitors the DC/DC power source and temperature. The control processor signals
the supervisor module and displays an alarm on its front panel when a problem is detected.
The front panel on the services module provides basic status information, such as power-on, self-test
running, self-test passed, alarm, and ready.
The binary image for the services module is downloaded from the supervisor module. Prior to the image
download, the control processor on the switching module runs from code stored on its local
CompactFlash card. The image for an ASM-SFN can be specified using the ASM-SFN boot variable.
For more information on how to specify the SSI boot variable, see the Cisco MDS 9000 Family CLI
Configuration Guide.
Note
Software downloads are only necessary when a revision of the code is needed.
The supervisor module can force a reset on the services module and controls whether power is applied
to the switching module.
If a single component or a set of components on the switching module fails, this failure does not disable
another switching module if that is the only failure in the system.
Each ASM has a hardware watchdog timer to detect most component failures. The watchdog timer resets
the card if it is not serviced periodically.

Caching Services Module
The Caching Services Module (CSM) provides virtualization services that allow the Cisco MDS 9000
Family switches to reallocate physical resources as virtual resources for increased efficiency. The CSM
receives and sends data through the switch backplane. It has two disk drives, two internal batteries for
backup in case of power failure, and no external ports.
CSMs must be implemented in pairs in the fabric to provide redundancy and backup. Only two or more
CSMs in a fabric are supported. However, the CSMs need not to be installed in the same switch.

Product Overview
Services Modules
The CSM shuts down if the software failure or an external power failure occurs, or if the module is
separated from the backplane while it is still powered on. The CSM automatically backs up the data in
memory to the disk drives and then shuts down. The CSM batteries provide adequate power to back up
data without external power.

Power Supplies
Power Supplies
The Cisco MDS 9200 Series supports dual hot-swappable 845-W AC power supplies, each of which can
supply sufficient power to the entire chassis should one power supply fail. The power supplies monitor
their output voltage and provide status to the supervisor module. To prevent the unexpected shutdown of
an optional module, power management software only allows a module to power up if adequate power
is available.
The Cisco MDS 9200 Series power supplies can be configured to be redundant or combined. By default,
they are configured as redundant, so that if one fails, the remaining power supply can still power the
entire system. For information on how to configure the power supplies, see the Cisco MDS 9000 Family
CLI Configuration Guide or the Cisco MDS 9000 Family Fabric Manager Configuration Guide.
The power supplies, which are accessed from the rear of the chassis, are illustrated in Figure 1-23.

Product Overview
Fan Module
Fan Module
The Cisco MDS 9200 Series supports a hot-swappable fan module with four fans. The fan module
provides 80 cfm (cubic feet per minute) of cooling per slot, allowing 400 W of power dissipation per
slot. Sensors on the supervisor module monitor the internal air temperature. If the air temperature
exceeds a preset lower-level threshold, the environmental monitor displays warning messages. If the air
temperature exceeds a preset higher-level threshold, the switch will shut down.
If one or more fans within the fan module fail, the Fan Status LED turns red and the module must be
replaced. Individual fans cannot be replaced, you must replace the entire fan module. If the higher-level
temperature threshold is not exceeded, the switch continues to run for five minutes after the fan module
is removed. This means you can swap out a fan module without having to bring the system down. To
replace a fan module, see the “Removing and Installing the Fan Module” section on page 2-38. The fan
module has one Status LED that indicates the following conditions:
Caution
•
Green—Fan module is operating normally.
•
Red—One or more fans failed. Fan module should be replaced.
•
Off—Fan module is not properly seated in the chassis or power supply has failed.
The Cisco MDS 9000 Family switches have internal temperature sensors that are capable of shutting
down the system if the temperature at different points within the chassis exceed certain safety thresholds.
To be effective, the temperature sensors require the presence of airflow; therefore, in the event a fan
module is removed from the chassis, the Cisco MDS 9000 Family switches shut down after five minutes
to prevent potentially undetectable overheating. However, the switches shut down sooner if the
higher-level temperature threshold is exceeded.
Supported Transceivers
The following types of transceivers are available from Cisco and are supported on the Cisco MDS 9200
Series:
Note
•
X2 Fibre Channel transceivers
•
Fibre Channel SFP transceivers, in either SWL or LWL
•

Product Overview
Supported Transceivers
CWDM Combination Fibre Channel/Gigabit Ethernet SFP Transceivers
All Fibre Channel and Gigabit Ethernet ports in the Cisco MDS 9200 Series support 1-Gbps/2-Gbps
CWDM SFP transceivers. In addition, the Fibre Channel ports on Cisco MDS 9222i also support 4-Gbps
CWDM SFP transceivers.
The Cisco CWDM SFP transceivers have LC connectors and support both Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre
Channel (1-Gbps/2-Gbps). They match the wavelength plan of Cisco CWDM GBICs and Cisco CWDM
optical add/drop multiplexers (OADMs).
CWDM SFP transceivers can be used in two ways:
•
CWDM transmission can send and receive up to eight laser wavelengths carrying different signals
simultaneously on the same optical fiber using an OADM.
•
ELWL signals can transmit over longer distances than LWL SFP transceivers.
There are eight different “colors” of CWDM SFP transceivers, one for each fixed wavelength. The fiber
optic cables from the CWDM SFP transceivers must be connected to an OADM. The OADM combines
the wavelengths of the different outgoing signals into one composite send signal. The OADM also
separates the received transmissions into the different wavelengths and sends them to the corresponding
CWDM SFP transceiver.
For more information on the CWDM SFP transceiver specifications, see the “SFP Transceiver
Specifications” section on page B-9.
Gigabit Ethernet SFP Transceivers
The 4-port and 8-port IP Storage services (IPS-4 and IPS-8) modules provide four or eight 1-Gigabit
Ethernet ports that support Gigabit Ethernet SFP transceivers. The Gigabit Ethernet SFP transceivers
have RJ-45 connectors and support Gigabit Ethernet (1-Gbps).
For more information on the Gigabit Ethernet SFP transceiver specifications, see the “SFP Transceiver
Specifications” section on page B-9.
DWDM Fibre Channel SFP Transceivers
Fibre Channel ports on Cisco MDS 9222i support 2-Gbps DWDM SFP transceivers. The Cisco DWDM
Fibre Channel SFP transceivers have LC connectors and support Fibre Channel (1-Gbps/2-Gbps). The
DWDM SFP transceivers match the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) 100-Ghz
wavelength grid and the wavelength plan of Cisco 100-Ghz ONS product family.
The DWDM SFP transceivers have the following capabilities:
•
DWDM transmission can send and receive up to 32 laser wavelengths carrying different signals
simultaneously on the same optical fiber by using an optical filter.
•
ELWL signals can transmit over longer distances than LWL SFP transceivers.
For more information on the DWDM SFP transceiver specifications, see the “SFP Transceiver
Specifications” section on page B-9.

Preinstallation
Installation Guidelines
Follow these guidelines when installing the Cisco MDS 9200 Series:
•
Plan your site configuration and prepare the site before installing the chassis. Appendix D, “Site
Planning and Maintenance Records,” lists the recommended site planning tasks.
•
Record the information listed in Appendix D, “Site Planning and Maintenance Records,” as you
install and configure the switch.
•
Ensure that there is adequate space around the switch to allow for servicing the switch and for
adequate airflow (Appendix B, “Technical Specifications,” lists airflow requirements).
•
Ensure that the air-conditioning meets the heat dissipation requirements listed in Appendix B,
“Technical Specifications.”
•
Ensure that the cabinet or rack meets the requirements listed in Appendix A, “Cabinet and Rack
Installation.”
Jumper power cords are available for use in a cabinet. See the “Jumper Power Cord” section on
page C-11.
Note
•
Ensure that the chassis is adequately grounded. If the switch is not mounted in a grounded rack,
Cisco recommends connecting both the system ground on the chassis and the power supply ground
to an earth ground.
•
Ensure that the site power meets the power requirements listed in Appendix B, “Technical
Specifications.” If available, you can use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to protect against
power failures.
Caution
•
Avoid UPS types that use ferroresonant technology. These UPS types can become unstable
with systems like the Cisco MDS 9000 Family, which can have substantial current draw
fluctuations because of fluctuating data traffic patterns.
Ensure that circuits are sized according to local and national codes. For North America, the 845-W
power supply requires a 15-A or 20-A circuit.
If you are using a 200- or 240-VAC power source in North America, the circuit must be protected
by a two-pole circuit breaker.
Caution
•
To prevent loss of input power, ensure the total maximum loads on the circuits supplying
power to the switch are within the current ratings for the wiring and breakers.
Use the following screw torques when installing the switch:
– Captive screws: 4 in-lb
– M3 screws: 4 in-lb
– M4 screws: 12 in-lb
– 10-32 screws: 20 in-lb
– 12-24 screws: 30 in-lb

Installing the Switch in a Cabinet with Insufficient Front
Clearance
This section describes how to use the rack-mount kit provided with the switch to install the Cisco MDS
9200 Series into a cabinet with insufficient front-facing clearance. The Cisco MDS 9200 Series is
installed rear-facing to provide adequate clearance for the fiber-optic cables. This cabinet meets the
requirements described in Appendix A, “Cabinet and Rack Installation,” except the cabinet has less than
three inches of clearance between the inside of the front door or bezel panel and the front cabinet
mounting rails. This rear-facing installation is necessary to ensure that the minimum bend radius for the
fiber-optic cables is maintained. In these cabinets, the Cisco MDS 9200 Series is mounted backwards,
with the fiber-optic cables facing toward the rear of the cabinet and the power supplies facing the front
of the cabinet.
Caution
If the rack is on wheels, ensure that the brakes are engaged or that the rack is otherwise stabilized.

System Grounding
This section describes the need for system grounding and explains how to prevent damage from
electrostatic discharge.
Proper Grounding Practices
Grounding is one of the most important parts of equipment installation. Proper grounding practices
ensure that the buildings and the installed equipment within them have low-impedance connections and
low-voltage differentials between chassis. When you properly ground systems during installation, you
reduce or prevent shock hazards, equipment damage due to transients, and data corruption. Table 2-2
lists some general grounding practice guidelines.

Table 2-2
Grounding Best Practices
Environment
Commercial building is
subjected to direct lightning
strikes.
Electromagnetic Noise Severity
Level
High
All lightning protection devices
must be installed in strict
accordance with manufacturer
recommendations. Conductors
carrying lightning current
should be spaced away from
power and data lines in
accordance with applicable
recommendations and codes.
Best grounding practices must
be closely followed.
High
Best grounding practices must
be closely followed.
For example, some places in the
United States, such as Florida,
are subject to more lightning
strikes than other areas.
Commercial building is located
in an area where lightning
storms frequently occur but is
not subject to direct lightning
strikes.
Grounding Recommendations
Commercial building contains a Medium to high
mix of information technology
equipment and industrial
equipment, such as welding.
Best grounding practices must
be closely followed.
Existing commercial building is Medium
not subject to natural
environmental noise or
man-made industrial noise. This
building contains a standard
office environment. This
installation has a history of
malfunction due to
electromagnetic noise.
Best grounding practices must
be closely followed. Determine
source and cause of noise if
possible, and mitigate as closely
as possible at the noise source or
reduce coupling from the noise
source to the victim equipment.
New commercial building is not Low
subject to natural environmental
noise or man-made industrial
noise. This building contains a
standard office environment.
Best grounding practices should
be followed as closely as
possible. Electromagnetic noise
problems are not anticipated, but
installing a best practice
grounding system in a new
building is often the least
expensive route and the best way
to plan for the future.
Existing commercial building is Low
not subject to natural
environmental noise or
man-made industrial noise. This
building contains a standard
office environment.
Best grounding practices should
be followed as much as possible.
Electromagnetic noise problems
are not anticipated, but
installing a best practice
grounding system is always
recommended.
Cisco MDS 9200 Series Hardware Installation Guide
2-20
OL-16188-01
Chapter 2
Installing the Cisco MDS 9200 Series
System Grounding
Note
In all situations, grounding practices must comply with local National Electric Code (NEC)
requirements or local laws and regulations.
Note
Always ensure that all of the modules are completely installed and that the captive installation screws
are fully tightened. In addition, ensure that all I/O cables and power cords are properly seated. These
practices are normal installation practices and must be followed in all installations.
Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage, which can occur when modules or other FRUs are improperly
handled, results in intermittent or complete failures. Modules consist of printed circuit boards that are
fixed in metal carriers. Electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding and connectors are integral
components of the carrier. Although the metal carrier helps to protect the board from ESD, always use
an ESD grounding strap when handling modules.
Follow these guidelines for preventing ESD damage:
Note
•
Always use an ESD wrist strap and ensure that it makes maximum contact with bare skin. ESD
grounding straps are available with banana plugs, metal spring clips, or alligator clips. All MDS
9200 series chassis are equipped with a banana plug connector (identified by the ground symbol next
to the connector) somewhere on the front panel. Cisco recommends that you use a personal ESD
grounding strap equipped with a banana plug.
•
If you choose to use the disposable ESD wrist strap supplied with most FRUs or an ESD wrist strap
equipped with an alligator clip, you must attach the system ground lug to the chassis in order to
provide a proper grounding point for the ESD wrist strap.
This system ground is also referred to as the network equipment building system (NEBS) ground.
•
Note
If your chassis does not have the system ground attached, you must install the system ground lug.
See “Establishing the System Ground” section on page 2-23 for installation instructions and
location of the chassis system ground pads.
You do not need to attach a supplemental system ground wire to the system ground lug; the lug provides
a direct path to the bare metal of the chassis.
After you install the system ground lug, follow these steps to correctly attach the ESD wrist strap:
Step 1
Attach the ESD wrist strap to bare skin as follows:
c.
If you are using the ESD wrist strap supplied with the FRUs, open the wrist strap package and
unwrap the ESD wrist strap. Place the black conductive loop over your wrist and tighten the strap
so that it makes good contact with your bare skin.
d.
If you are using an ESD wrist strap equipped with an alligator clip, open the package and remove
the ESD wrist strap. Locate the end of the wrist strap that attaches to your body and secure it to your
bare skin.
Cisco MDS 9200 Series Hardware Installation Guide
OL-16188-01
2-21
Chapter 2
Installing the Cisco MDS 9200 Series
System Grounding
Step 2
Grasp the spring or alligator clip on the ESD wrist strap and momentarily touch the clip to a bare metal
spot (unpainted surface) on the rack. Cisco recommends that you touch the clip to an unpainted rack rail
so that any built-up static charge is then safely dissipated to the entire rack.
Step 3
Attach either the spring clip or the alligator clip to the ground lug screw as follows (See Figure 2-16.):
a.
Note
b.
If you are using the ESD wrist strap that is supplied with the FRUs, squeeze the spring clip jaws
open, position the spring clip to one side of the system ground lug screw head, and slide the spring
clip over the lug screw head so that the spring clip jaws close behind the lug screw head.
The spring clip jaws do not open wide enough to fit directly over the head of the lug screw or
the lug barrel.
If you are using an ESD wrist strap that is equipped with an alligator clip, attach the alligator clip
directly over the head of the system ground lug screw or to the system ground lug barrel.

System Grounding
In addition, follow these guidelines when handling modules:
Caution
•
Handle carriers by available handles or edges only; avoid touching the printed circuit boards or
connectors.
•
Place a removed component board-side-up on an antistatic surface or in a static shielding container.
If you plan to return the component to the factory, immediately place it in a static shielding
container.
•
Never attempt to remove the printed circuit board from the metal carrier.
For safety, periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap. The measurement should be
between 1 and 10 megohm (Mohm).
Establishing the System Ground
This section describes how to connect a system ground to the MDS 9200 series switches.
Note
This system ground is also referred to as the network equipment building system (NEBS) ground.
You must use the system (NEBS) ground on AC-powered systems if you are installing this equipment in
a U.S. or European Central Office.
The system (NEBS) ground provides additional grounding for EMI shielding requirements and
grounding for the low voltage supplies (DC-DC converters) on the modules and is intended to satisfy the
telcordia Technologies NEBS requirements for supplemental bonding and grounding connections. You
must observe the following system grounding guidelines for your chassis:
•
You must install the system (NEBS) ground connection with any other rack or system power ground
connections that you make. The system ground connection is required if this equipment is installed
in a U.S. or European Central Office.
•
You must connect both the system (NEBS) ground connection and the power supply ground
connection to an earth ground. The system (NEBS) ground connection is required if this equipment
is installed in a U.S. or European Central Office.
•
You do not need to power down the chassis because the MDS 9200 series chassis are equipped with
AC-input power supplies.
Required Tools and Equipment
To connect the ground system, you need the following tools and materials:
•
Grounding lug—A two holes standard barrel lug. Supports up to 6 AWG wire. Supplied as part of
accessory kit.
•
Grounding screws—Two M4 x 8mm (metric) pan-head screws. Supplied as part of the accessory kit.
•
Grounding wire—Not supplied as part of accessory kit. The grounding wire should be sized
according to local and national installation requirements. Depending on the power supply and
system, a 12 AWG to 6 AWG copper conductor is required for U.S. installations. Commercially
available 6 AWG wire is recommended. The length of the grounding wire depends on the proximity
of the switch to proper grounding facilities.
•
No. 1 Phillips screwdriver.

The chassis has a grounding pad with two threaded M4 holes for attaching a grounding lug. Figure 2-17
shows the system ground location on the Cisco MDS 9200 Series.
Warning
When installing or replacing the unit, the ground connection must always be made first and
disconnected last. Statement 1046
Caution
Cisco recommends grounding the chassis, even if the rack is already grounded.
Caution
All power supplies must be grounded. The receptacles of the AC power cables used to provide power to
the chassis must be the grounding type, and the grounding conductors should connect to protective earth
ground at the service equipment.

the two M4 screws with washers through the holes in the grounding lug and into the grounding pad.
Step 6
Ensure that the lug and cable do not interfere with other equipment.
Step 7
Prepare the other end of the grounding cable and connect it to an appropriate grounding point in your
site to ensure adequate earth ground.
Starting Up the Switch
This section provides instructions for powering up the switch and verifying component installation.
Warning
Hazardous voltage or energy is present on the backplane when the system is operating. Use caution
when servicing. Statement 1034
Warning
Blank faceplates and cover panels serve three important functions: they prevent exposure to
hazardous voltages and currents inside the chassis; they contain electromagnetic interference (EMI)
that might disrupt other equipment; and they direct the flow of cooling air through the chassis. Do not
operate the system unless all cards, faceplates, front covers, and rear covers are in place. During this
procedure, wear grounding wrist straps to avoid ESD damage to the switch. Statement 1029
Note
Warning
Do not connect the MGMT 10/100 Ethernet port to the LAN until the initial switch configuration has
been performed. For instructions on configuring the switch, see the Cisco MDS 9000 Family CLI
Configuration Guide or the Cisco MDS 9000 Family Fabric Manager Configuration Guide. For
instructions on connecting to the console port, see the “Connecting to the Console Port” section on
page 3-2.
When installing or replacing the unit, the ground connection must always be made first and
disconnected last. Statement 1046
To power up the switch and verify hardware operation, follow these steps:
Step 1
Verify that empty module slots have filler panels installed, the faceplates of all modules are flush with
the front of the chassis, the ejector levers are fully closed and approximately parallel to the front of the
module, and the captive screws of the power supplies, fan module, and all supervisor, switching, or
services modules are tight.

Chapter 2
Installing the Cisco MDS 9200 Series
Starting Up the Switch
Step 2
Verify that both power supplies and the fan module are installed.
Step 3
Verify that the power switches on both power supplies are off, and then plug the power cables into the
power supplies and tighten the screws on the power cable retainers to ensure the cables cannot be pulled
out.
Depending on the outlet receptacle on your power distribution unit, you may need the optional
jumper power cord to connect the Cisco MDS 9200 Series to your outlet receptacle. See the
“Jumper Power Cord” section on page C-11.
Note
Step 4
Connect the other end of the power cables to an AC power source.
Step 5
Ensure that the switch is adequately grounded as described in the “Installing the Switch in a Cabinet with
Insufficient Front Clearance” section on page 2-11, and that the power cables are connected to outlets
that have the required AC power voltages (see the “Weight of Modules” section on page B-3).
Step 6
Flip the power switches on the power supplies to the on (|) position. The switch boots automatically.
Step 7
Listen for the fans; they should begin operating when the switch is powered on.
Caution
Step 8
Do not operate the switch without a functioning fan module except for during the brief fan
module replacement procedure. Cisco MDS 9000 Family switches can operate for only a few
minutes without any functioning fan modules before they begin to overheat.
After the switch boots, verify that the LED behavior is as follows:
•
Fan module: Status LED is green.
•
Power supplies:
– Input Ok LED is green.
– Fan Ok LED is green.
– Output Fail LED is off.
•
Supervisor, switching, or services modules:
– During initialization, the status LED on the module flashes orange once, remains orange during
diagnostic boot tests, then turns green when the module is operational (online). If the system
software is unable to start up, this LED remains orange or turns red.
– After initialization, the status LED is green, indicating that all chassis environmental monitors
are reporting that the system is operational. If this LED is orange or red, then one or more
environmental monitor is reporting a problem.
•
Note
Step 9
The Link LEDs for the Ethernet port should not be on unless the cable is connected.
The link LEDs for the Fibre Channel ports remain yellow until the ports are enabled, and the
LED for the MGMT 10/100 Ethernet port remains off until the port is connected.
Try removing and reinstalling a component that is not operating correctly. If it still does not operate
correctly, contact your customer service representative for a replacement.

When running power and data cables in overhead or subfloor cable trays, Cisco strongly recommends
that power cables and other potential noise sources must be located as far away as practical from network
cabling that terminates on Cisco equipment. In situations where long parallel cable runs cannot be
separated by at least 3.3 ft (1 m), Cisco recommends shielding any potential noise sources by housing
them in a grounded metallic conduit.

Preparing for Network Connections
Preparing for Network Connections
When preparing your site for network connections to the Cisco MDS 9200 Series, consider the following
for each type of interface, and gather all the required equipment before connecting the ports:
•
Cabling required for each interface type
•
Distance limitations for each signal type
•
Additional interface equipment required
Connecting to the Console Port
The console port (labeled Console) is an RS-232 port with an RJ-45 interface. (See Figure 3-1.) The
console port is an asynchronous (async) serial port; any device connected to this port must be capable
of asynchronous transmission.
Cisco recommends using this port to create a local management connection to set the IP address and
other initial configuration settings before connecting the switch to the network for the first time.
The console port can be used to connect to a modem, however, Cisco recommends using the COM1 port
for this purpose. If you decide to connect the console port to a modem, do not connect it while the switch
is booting; connect either before powering the switch on or after the switch has completed the boot
process.

Connecting to the Console Port
Note
To connect the console port to a computer terminal, the computer must support VT100 terminal
emulation. The terminal emulation software—frequently an application such as HyperTerminal or
Procomm Plus—makes communication between the Cisco MDS 9200 Series and a computer possible
during setup and configuration.
To connect the console port to a computer terminal, follow these steps:
Step 1
Configure the terminal emulator program to match the following default port characteristics: 9600 baud,
8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity.
Step 2
Connect the supplied RJ-45 to DB-9 female adapter or RJ-45 to DB-25 female adapter (depending on
your computer serial port) to the computer serial port. Cisco recommends using the adapter and cable
provided with the switch.
Step 3
Connect the console cable (a rollover RJ-45 to RJ-45 cable) to the console port (see Figure 3-1) and to
the RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter or RJ-45 to DB-25 adapter at the computer serial port.

Maintaining SFP Transceivers and Fiber-Optic Cables
SFP transceivers and fiber-optic cables must be kept clean and dust-free to maintain high signal accuracy
and prevent damage to the connectors. Attenuation (Loss of Light) is increased by contamination and
should be below 0.35 dB.
Consider the following maintenance guidelines:
•
SFP transceivers are static sensitive. To prevent ESD damage, wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap
that is connected to the chassis.
•
Do not remove and insert a transceiver more often than is necessary. Repeated removals and
insertions can shorten its useful life.
•
Keep all optical connections covered when not in use. If they become dusty, clean before using to
prevent dust from scratching the fiber-optic cable ends.
•
Do not touch ends of connectors to prevent fingerprints and other contamination.
•
Clean regularly; the required frequency of cleaning depends upon the environment. In addition,
clean connectors if they are exposed to dust or accidentally touched. Both wet and dry cleaning
techniques can be effective; refer to your site’s fiber-optic connection cleaning procedure.
•
Inspect routinely for dust and damage. If damage is suspected, clean and then inspect fiber ends
under a microscope to determine if damage has occurred.

Note
This optional kit is not provided with the switch; to order the kit, contact your switch supplier.
Note
For additional support after removing the shelf brackets, ensure that the C brackets on the Cisco MDS
9200 Series are attached to the rear rack-mounting rails.
Rack-Mounting Guidelines
Caution
If the rack is on wheels, ensure that the brakes are engaged or the rack is otherwise stabilized.
Caution
If installing this kit in an EIA rack, attach the switch to all four rack-mounting rails; the EIA rails might
not be thick enough to prevent flexing of the shelf brackets if only two rails are used.
Before rack-mounting the chassis, ensure that the cabinet or rack meets the following requirements:
•
The specifications listed in the “Cabinet and Rack Requirements” section on page A-1.
•
The depth of the rack between the front and rear mounting rails is at least 18 in.(45.7 cm) but less
than or equal to 30 in. (76.2 cm). This is specific to four-post EIA cabinets or racks.
•
The airflow and cooling are adequate and there is sufficient clearance around the air vents on the
switch, as described in Appendix B, “Technical Specifications.” This is particularly important to
verify if you are installing the switch in an enclosed cabinet.

SFP Transceiver Specifications
The Cisco MDS 9200 Series is compatible with SFP transceivers and cables that have LC connectors.
Each transceiver must match the transceiver on the other end of the cable in terms of wavelength, and
the cable must not exceed the stipulated cable length for reliable communications.
Cisco SFP transceivers provide the uplink interfaces, laser transmit (TX) and laser receive (RX), and
support 850 to 1610 nm nominal wavelengths, depending upon the transceiver.
Use only Cisco SFP transceivers on the Cisco MDS 9200 Series. Each Cisco SFP transceiver is encoded
with model information that enables the switch to verify that the SFP transceiver meets the requirements
for the switch.
Note
Generation 2 modules will not support 1-Gbps/2-Gbps SFPs. Generation 2 modules only support 4-Gbps
SFPs.
