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.

Features
The Cisco Nexus 5020 switch is a 2 RU, top-of-rack switch that provides Ethernet and Fibre Channel
consolidation in a single physical cable. The Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) protocol is used to
consolidate Ethernet and Fibre Channel traffic onto the same physical connection between the server and
the switch. As a top-of-rack switch, all the servers in the rack connect to the Cisco Nexus 5020 switch,
and it connects to the LAN or SAN.
The Cisco Nexus 5020 switch is a part of a family of switches that provide 10-Gigabit Ethernet and FCoE
ports and both 10-Gigabit Ethernet and native 1-, 2-, and 4-Gbps Fibre Channel ports. The switches
provide consolidated I/O connectivity to both production Ethernet LANs and Fibre Channel SANs in a
cost-effective, high-performance, low-latency Ethernet switch.
The Cisco Nexus 5020 switch has the following features:
•
Forty fixed 10-Gigabit Ethernet server connection ports on the back of the switch

Features
The Cisco Nexus 5010 switch is a 1RU, top-of-rack switch that provides Ethernet and Fibre Channel
consolidation in a single physical cable. The Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) protocol is used to
consolidate Ethernet and Fibre Channel traffic onto the same physical connection between the server and
the switch. As a top-of-rack switch, all the servers in the rack connect to the Cisco Nexus 5010 switch,
and it connects to the LAN or SAN.
The Cisco Nexus 5010 switch is a part of a family of switches that provide 10-Gigabit Ethernet and FCoE
ports and both 10-Gigabit Ethernet and native 1-, 2-, and 4-Gbps Fibre Channel ports. The switches
provide consolidated I/O connectivity to both production Ethernet LANs and Fibre Channel SANs in a
cost-effective, high-performance, low-latency Ethernet switch.
The Cisco Nexus 5010 switch has the following features:
•
One slot on the back of the switch for an optional uplink Gatos Expansion Module [GEM]. There
are several modules which can be accommodated in this slot. Three such modules are N5K-M1404,
N5K-M1600 and N5K-M1008.
•
Twenty to twenty-eight ports on the back of the switch depending on which GEM is installed. This
is because twenty ports on Cisco Nexus 5010 switch belong to the base switch. Additionally, one
module can be inserted which can be of 6 or 8 ports.
•
Two slots on the front of the switch for hot swap-capable power supplies.
•
Two slots on the front of the switch for fan modules. Each fan module houses six fans. The
combination of six fans per module and two modules provides the switch with a total of 12-fans.
Chassis
The Cisco Nexus 5010 chassis is 1 RU, 1.72 inches tall, 17.3 inches wide and 30.0 inches deep. It is
designed to be mounted in a standard 19-inch rack. The switch has two power supplies and two fans
modules on the front of the switch. Ports are at the rear of the switch. The airflow is front to back.

Installation Options
The Cisco Nexus 5000 switch can be installed using the following methods:
•
In an open EIA rack, using the following items:
– The rack-mount kit shipped with the switch
– The EIA Shelf Bracket Kit (an optional kit, purchased separately)
•
In a perforated or solid-walled EIA cabinet, using:
– The rack-mount kit shipped with the switch
– The EIA Shelf Bracket Kit (an optional kit, purchased separately)
For instructions on installing the switch using the rack-mount kit shipped with the switch, see the
“Installing the Cisco Nexus 5020 Chassis in a Cabinet or Rack” section on page 2-5.
Note
The optional EIA Shelf Bracket Kit is not provided with the switch. To order the kit, contact your switch
provider.
Airflow Considerations
Airflow through the Cisco Nexus 5000 switch is from front to back. Air enters the chassis through the
fan trays and power supplies mounted at the front of the chassis and exits the chassis through
perforations on the rear of the chassis. To ensure proper airflow, follow these guidelines:
•
Maintain ambient airflow throughout the data center to ensure normal operation.
•
Consider the heat dissipation of all equipment when determining air-conditioning requirements.
When evaluating airflow requirements, take into consideration that hot air generated by equipment
at the bottom of the rack can be drawn in the intake ports of the equipment above.
Chassis Weight
When lifting the system, follow these guidelines:

•
Disconnect all power and external cables before lifting the system.
•
Have two people to lift the system. The Nexus 5020 weighs 50 lb (22.680 kg) and the Nexus 5010
weighs 35 lb.
•
Ensure that your footing is solid and the weight of the system is evenly distributed between your
feet.
•
Lift the system slowly, keeping your back straight. Lift with your legs, not with your back. Bend at
the knees, not at the waist.
Installation Guidelines
When installing the Cisco Nexus 5000 switch, follow these guidelines:
•
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-10.
Note
•
Ensure that the chassis is adequately grounded. If the switch is not mounted in a grounded rack, we
recommend 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 such as the Cisco Nexus 5000 switch, 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 power
supply requires a 15-A or 20-A circuit.
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.

Grounding the System
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 2-3
lists some general grounding practice guidelines.

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.
For preventing ESD damage, follow these guidelines:
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
Cisco Nexus 5000 Series chassis are equipped with a banana plug connector (identified by the
ground symbol next to the connector) somewhere on the front panel. We recommend 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 2-14 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:
a.
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.
b.
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.

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. We recommend 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 2-7.):
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.
The following illustration displays how to attach the ESD Wrist Strap to the System Ground Lug Screw
for the 5020 switch. Follow the same procedure for the 5010 switch.

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 Cisco Nexus 5000 switch.
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 Cisco Nexus 5020 switch is equipped with
AC-input power supplies.
Required Tools and Equipment
To connect the system ground, you need the following tools and materials:
•
Grounding lug—A two-hole 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.

Connecting the Cisco Nexus 5000 Switch
The Cisco Nexus 5000 switch provides the following types of ports:
Caution
•
Console port —An RS-232 port that you can use to create a local management connection.
•
Ethernet ports, both encrypted and unencrypted—These ports can be used to connect to a LAN.
•
Fibre Channel ports—These ports can be used to connect to a SAN.
When running power and data cables in overhead or subfloor cable trays, Cisco Systems 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 Systems equipment. In situations where long parallel
cable runs cannot be separated by at least 3.3 ft (1 m), Cisco Systems recommends shielding any
potential noise sources by housing them in a grounded metallic conduit.

Preparing for Network Connections
When preparing your site for network connections to the Cisco Nexus 5000 switch, 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 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.
We recommend 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.
Caution
The console port can be used to connect to a modem. If you do not connect it to a modem, connect it
either before powering the switch on or after the switch has completed the boot process.
Figure 3-1 shows how to connect to the console port on the Cisco Nexus 5020 switch. The process is
identical for the Cisco Nexus 5010 switch.

Maintaining SFP+ Transceivers and Cables
SFP+ transceivers 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.
Connecting to a Fibre Channel Port
Use an SFP transceiver to connect to an Fibre Channel port.
Removing and Installing SFP Transceivers
Caution
Excessively removing and installing an SFP transceiver can shorten its life. Do not remove and insert
SFP transceivers more often unless it is absolutely necessary. Cisco recommends disconnecting cables
before installing or removing SFP transceivers to prevent damage to the cable or transceiver.
This section describes the proper method for installing and removing an SFP transceiver.

rails.
•
For four-post EIA cabinets (perforated or solid-walled):
– The minimum spacing for the bend radius for fiber-optic cables should have the front-mounting
rails of the cabinet offset from the front door by a minimum of 3 inches (7.6 cm), and a
minimum of 5 inches (12.7 cm) if cable management brackets are installed on the front of the
chassis.
– The distance between the outside face of the front mounting rail and the outside face of the back
mounting rail should be 23.5 to 34.0 inches (59.7 to 86.4 cm) to allow for rear-bracket
installation.
– A minimum of 2.5 inches (6.4 cm) of clear space should exist between the side edge of the
chassis and the side wall of the cabinet. No sizeable flow obstructions should be immediately
in the way of chassis air intake or exhaust vents.
Note
Optional jumper power cords are available for use in a cabinet. See the “Jumper Power Cord”
section on page C-10.
Requirements Specific to Perforated Cabinets
A perforated cabinet is defined here as a cabinet with perforated front and rear doors and solid side walls.

Troubleshooting Hardware Components
This appendix describes how to identify and resolve problems that might occur with the hardware
components of the Cisco Nexus 5000 switch. It includes the following sections:
•
Overview, page E-1
•
SNMP Traps, page E-1
•
Switch Hardware Best Practices, page E-1
Overview
The key to success when troubleshooting the system hardware is to isolate the problem to a specific
system component. The first step is to compare what the system is doing to what it should be doing.
Because a startup problem can usually be attributed to a single component, it is more efficient to isolate
the problem to a subsystem rather than troubleshoot each separate component in the system.
Problems with the initial power up are often caused by a module that is not firmly connected to the
backplane or a power supply that has been disconnected from the power cord connector.
Overheating can also cause problems with the system, though typically only after the system has been
operating for an extended period of time. The most common cause of overheating is the failure of a fan
module.
SNMP Traps
You can set SNMP traps to monitor fans, power supplies, and temperature settings, or to test a call home
application. Use the following commands to set SNMP traps:
•
test pfmtest-SNMP-trap fan
•
test pfmtest-SNMP-trap power supply
•
test pfmtest-SNMP-trap temp-sensor
Switch Hardware Best Practices
Use the recommendations in this section to ensure the proper installation, initialization, and operation
of the switch. This section includes the following topics:

Installation Best Practices
When installing the switch, follow these best practices:
•
Plan your site configuration and prepare the site before installing the chassis.
•
Verify that you have the appropriate power supplies for your chassis configuration.
•
Install the chassis following the rack and airflow guidelines presented in this guide.
•
Verify that the chassis is adequately grounded.
Initialization Best Practices
When the initial system boot is complete, verify the following:
•
Power supplies are supplying power to the system. See the
•
Fan modules are operating normally. See the
•
The system software boots successfully. See the Cisco Nexus 5020 CLI Configuration Guide for
information about booting the system and initial configuration task.
Switch Operation Best Practices
To ensure proper operation of your switch, take the following actions:
•
Make a copy of the running configuration to CompactFlash for a safe backup.
•
Always enter the copy running-config startup-config CLI command after you modify the running
configuration and ensure that the system is operating properly.
•
Never use the init system CLI command unless you understand that you will lose the running and
startup configuration as well as the files stored on bootflash:.
•
Keep backup copies of the running kickstart and the system images on CompactFlash.
