Security
The components of security are:
■
User authentication
■
Inter-Switch link security
■
Inband management
3.1.1
User Authentication
User Authentication security pertains to gaining access to a switch after entering a
valid account name/password combination entered by the user. User
Authentication security is “switch level” security in that it pertains to only that
switch. When using the command line interface, the user must be authenticated
before gaining access to a switch. If an invalid account name/password
combination is entered, that user can not access the switch, and thus can not gain
access to the fabric.
To enable User Authentication security, set the Security Enabled parameter to
True using the Set Setup System command. Refer to the ”Set Setup Command”
on page A-37 for information. All switches in the fabric should be configured with
the same security setting (enabled/true or disabled/false). The User
Authentication security is disabled by default.
If User Authentication security is enabled and a valid account name/password
combination is entered, that user can access the switch but can not execute any
command that exceeds their authority (privileges) level. If User Authentication
security is disabled and a valid account name/password combination is entered,
that user has access to all switches in the fabric and can execute all commands
(both user and admin), regardless of their authority (privileges) level.
The valid account name/password/system privileges combinations are set up by
the system administrator, and define which set of system commands each user
may execute.

Security
Once access is gained to the entry switch in a fabric, that user may access all
switches in that fabric (if ISL Security is not disabled). Refer to ”Inter-Switch Link
Security” on page 3-2 for more information.
3.1.2
Inter-Switch Link Security
Inter-Switch Link security pertains to whether the switches in the fabric are
configured to permit access to each switch in that fabric. Inter-Switch Link security
enables inter-switch links with FC-SW-2 compliant switches, SANbox2 switches
only, or none regardless of switch type. ISL security should be thought of as the
parameter with Any, Ours and None being the values. The three ISLSecurity
parameters are:
■
Any - links with any FC-SW-2 compliant switch
■
Ours - links only with another SANbox2 switch
■
None - the port will not establish an ISL link
Refer to the ”Set Config Command” on page A-25 for more ISL security
information and a Set Config Port example.
3.1.3
Inband Management
Inband management is the ability to manage switches across inter-switch links
using SANbox Manager, SNMP, IPFC, management server, or the application
programming interface. The switch comes from the factory with inband
management enabled. If you disable inband management on a particular switch,
you can no longer communicate with that switch by means other than a direct
Ethernet or serial connection.
To enable Inband Management using SANbox Manager, check the Enable radio
button on the Switch Properties window. Refer to ”Switch Properties” on
page 4-13 for more information. To enable Inband Management using the
command line interface, set the InbandEnabled parameter to True in the Set
Config Switch command. Refer to the in the ”Set Config Command” on page A-25
for more ISL security information and a Set Config Port example.

Replacing a Failed Switch
3.2.6
Adding a New Switch to a Fabric
If there are no special conditions to be configured for the new switch, simply plug
in the switch and the switch becomes functional with the default fabric
configuration. The default fabric configuration settings are:
■
Fabric zoning is sent to the switch from the fabric.
■
All ports will be GL_Ports.
■
The default IP address 10.0.0.1 is assigned to the switch without a gateway
or boot protocol configured (RARP, BOOTP, and DHCP).
If you are adding a new switch to a fabric and do not want to accept the default
fabric configuration, do the following:
1.
If the switch is not new, reset the switch to the factory configuration before
adding the switch to the fabric by selecting Restore Factory Defaults in the
Switch menu.
2.
If you want to manage the switch through the Ethernet port, you must first
configure the IP address using the Network Properties window.
3.
Configure any special switch settings. Consider configuring the Default
Visibility setting to None in the Zoning Config window to prevent
communication with other switches in the fabric until the new switch is
configured.
4.
Plug in the inter-switch links (ISL), but do not connect the devices.
5.
Configure the port types for the new switch (GL_Port, TL_Port, Donor) using
the Port Properties window.
6.
Connect the devices to the switch.
7.
Make any necessary zoning changes using the Edit Zoning window.

Displaying Fabric Information
The topology display is your primary tool for monitoring a fabric. The graphics
window of the topology display provides status information for switches,
inter-switch links, and the Ethernet connection to the management workstation.
The data window tabs show name server, switch, and active zone set information.
The Active Zoneset tab shows the zone definitions for the active zone set. Refer
to ”Name Server Data Window” on page 4-3 and ”Switch Data Window” on
page 4-4 for information about the Name Server and Switch data windows.
3.4.1
Fabric Status
The fabric updates the topology and faceplate displays by forwarding changes in
status to the management workstation as they occur. You can allow the fabric to
update the display status, or you can refresh the display at any time. To refresh
the topology display, do one of the following:
■
Choose the Refresh button.
■
Open the View menu and select Refresh.
■
Press the F5 key.
■
Right-click anywhere in the background of the topology display and select

Zoning configuration
3.5.1.1
Zones
A zone is a named group of ports or devices that can communicate with each
other. Membership in a zone can be defined by port number, device Fibre
Channel address, or device World Wide Name (WWN). Zone members can
communicate only with members of the same zone.
Three types of zones are supported. The following zone types define increasingly
restrictive levels of communication.
3-10
■
Soft zone
■
Access Control List (ACL) - hard zone
■
Virtual Private Fabric (VPF) - hard zone
59022-05 A
3 – Managing Fabrics
Zoning a Fabric
3.5.1.1.1
Soft Zones
Soft zoning divides the fabric for purposes of controlling discovery. Members of
the same soft zone automatically discover and communicate freely with all other
members of the same zone. The soft zone boundary is not secure; traffic across
soft zones can occur if addressed correctly. Soft zones that include members from
multiple switches need not include the ports of the inter-switch links. Soft zone
boundaries yield to ACL and VPF zone boundaries. Soft zones can overlap; that
is, a port can be a member of more than one soft zone. Zone membership can be
defined by Fibre Channel address, port ID and domain ID, worldwide name, or a
combination. Soft zoning supports all port modes.
3.5.1.1.2
Access Control List Hard Zones
Access Control List (ACL) zoning divides the fabric for purposes of controlling
discovery and inbound traffic. ACL zoning is a type of hard zoning that is
hardware enforced. This type of zoning is useful for controlling access to certain
devices without totally isolating them from the fabric. Members can communicate
with each other and transmit outside the ACL zone, but cannot receive inbound
traffic from outside the zone. The ACL zone boundary is secure against inbound
traffic. ACL zones can overlap; that is, a port can be a member of more than one
ACL zone. ACL zones that include members from multiple switches need not
include the ports of the inter-switch links. ACL zone boundaries supersede soft
zone boundaries, but yield to VPF zone boundaries. Membership can be defined
only by port ID and domain ID. ACL zoning supports all port modes except
TL_Ports.
3.5.1.1.3
Virtual Private Fabric Hard Zones
Virtual Private Fabric (VPF) zoning divides the fabric for purposes of controlling
discovery and both inbound and outbound traffic. This type of zoning is useful for
providing security and reserving paths between devices to guarantee bandwidth.
VPF zoning is a type of hard zoning that is hardware enforced. Members can only
transmit to and receive from members of the same VPF zone. The VPF zone
boundary is secure against both inbound and outbound traffic. VPF zones that
include members from multiple switches must include the ports of the inter-switch
links. VPF zones cannot overlap; that is, a port can be a member of only one VPF
zone. VPF zone boundaries supersede both soft and ACL zone boundaries.
Membership can be defined only by port ID and domain ID. VPF zoning supports
all port modes.
59022-05 A

3 – Managing Fabrics
Zoning a Fabric
Note:
Domain ID conflicts can result in automatic reassignment of switch
domain IDs. These reassignments are not reflected in zones that use
domain ID and port number pairs or Fibre Channel addresses to define
their membership. Be sure to reconfigure zones that are affected by a
domain ID change. To prevent zoning definitions from becoming invalid
when the membership is defined by domain ID/port number or Fibre
Channel address, you must lock domain IDs. Refer to ”Domain ID and
Domain ID Lock” on page 4-14 and ”Set Config Command” on
page A-25 for more information.
3.5.1.2
Aliases
To make it easier to add a group of ports or devices to one or more zones, you can
create an alias. An alias is a named set of ports or devices that are grouped
together for convenience. Unlike zones, aliases impose no communication
restrictions between its members. You can add an alias to one or more zones.
However, you cannot add a zone to an alias, nor can an alias be a member of
another alias.
3.5.1.3
Zone Sets
A zone set is a named group of zones. A zone can be a member of more than one
zone set. All zones that are not members of a zone set belong to the orphan zone
set. The orphan zone set is saved on the switch. Each switch in the fabric
maintains its own zoning database containing one or more zone sets. This zoning
database resides in non-volatile or permanent memory and is therefore retained
after a reset. Refer to ”Configured Zonesets Data Window” on page 4-7 for
information about displaying the zoning database.
To apply zoning to a fabric, choose a zone set and activate it. When you activate a
zone set, the switch distributes that zone set to every switch in the fabric. This
zone set is known as the active zone set. Refer to ”Active Zone Set Data Window”
on page 3-9 for information about displaying the active zone set.
3.5.1.4
Zoning Database
Each switch has its own zoning database. The zoning database is made up of all
aliases, zones, and zone sets that have been created on the switch or received
from other switches. The switch maintains two copies of the zoning database: one
copy is maintained in temporary memory for editing purposes; the second copy is
maintained in permanent memory. Zoning database edits are made on an
individual switch basis and are not propagated to other switches in the fabric when
saved. The zoning limits for a fabric are as follows:
3-12

■
Maximum total number of zone and alias members is 2000
3.5.1.5
Zoning Configuration
You can set the Auto Save and Default Visibility zoning configuration parameters
using SANbox Manager or the Set Config Zoning command. The Auto Save
parameter determines whether changes to the active zone set that a switch
receives from other switches in the fabric will be saved to permanent memory on
that switch. The Default Visibility parameter permits or prohibits communication
between switches when there is no active zone set. Refer to ”Using the Zoning
Config Window” on page 3-13 for information about zoning configuration using
SANbox Manager. Refer also to the Set Config Command on page A-25 for
information about zoning configuration using the CLI.
3.5.2
Using the Zoning Config Window
Use the Zoning Config window to change the Auto Save and Default Visibility
configuration parameters. In the faceplate display, open the Zoning menu and
select Edit Zoning Config to open the Zoning Config window shown in
Figure 3-3. After making changes, choose the OK button to put the new values
into effect.

Zoning a Fabric
3.5.2.1
Auto Save
The Auto Save parameter determines whether changes to the active zone set that
a switch receives from other switches in the fabric will be saved to permanent
memory on that switch. Changes are saved when an updated zone set is
activated. Zoning changes are always saved to temporary memory. However, if
Auto Save is enabled, the switch firmware saves changes to the active zone set in
both temporary and permanent memory. If Auto Save is disabled, changes to the
active zone set are stored only in temporary memory.
3.5.2.2
Default Visibility
Default visibility determines the level of communication that is permitted among
ports/devices when there is no active zone set. The default visibility parameter
can be set differently on each switch. When default visibility is enabled (ALL) on a
switch, all ports/devices on the switch can communicate with all ports on switches
that also have default visibility enabled. When Default Visibility is disabled
(NONE) on a switch, none of the ports/devices on that switch can communicate
with any other port/device in the fabric.
3.5.3
Restoring Default Zoning
Restoring the default zoning clears the switch of all zoning definitions.
CAUTION!
This command will deactivate the active zone set.
To restore the default zoning for a switch:

3.5.4
Merging Fabrics and Zoning
If you join two fabrics with an inter-switch link, the active zone sets from the two
fabrics attempt to merge. The fabrics may consist of a single switch or many
switches already connected together. The switches in the two fabrics attempt to
create a new active zone set containing the union of each fabric’s active zone set.
The propagation of zoning information only affects the active zone set, not the
configured zone sets.
3.5.4.1
Zone Merge Failure
If a zone merge is unsuccessful, the inter-switch links between the fabrics will
isolate due to a zone merge failure, which will generate an alarm log entry. The
reason for the E_Port isolation can also be determined by viewing the port
information. Refer to ”Port Information Data Window” on page 5-7and the ”Show
Command” on page A-42(Port keyword).
A zone merge will fail if the two active zone sets have member zones with
identical names that differ in content or type. For example, consider Fabric A and
Fabric B each with a zone named “ZN1” in its active zone set. Fabric A "ZN1"
contains a member specified by Domain ID 1 and Port 1; Fabric B “ZN1” contains
a member specified by Domain ID 1 and Port 2. In this case, the merge will fail
and the inter-switch links between the fabrics will isolate.
3.5.4.2
Zone Merge Failure Recovery
When a zone merge failure occurs, the conflict that caused the failure must be
resolved. You can correct a failure due to a zone conflict by deactivating one of
the active zone sets or editing the conflicting zones so that their membership is
the same. You can deactivate the active zone set on one switch if the active zone
set on the other switch accurately defines your zoning needs. If not, you must edit
the zone memberships, and reactivate the zone sets. Refer to ”Managing Zones”
on page 3-20 for information about adding and removing zone members. After
correcting the zone membership, reset the isolated ports to allow the fabrics to
join. Refer to ”Resetting a Port” on page 5-13.

stored in flash (non-volatile) memory and retained after resetting a switch.
The Edit Zoning window has a Zone Sets tree on the left and a Port/Device (or
members) tree on the right. Both trees use display conventions similar to the
fabric tree for expanding and contracting zone sets, zones, and ports. An
expanded port shows the port Fibre Channel address; an expanded address
shows the port worldwide name. You can select zone sets, zones, and ports in the
following ways:

Managing Zone Sets
Zoning a fabric involves creating a zone set, creating zones as zone set members,
then adding devices as zone members. The zoning database supports multiple
zone sets to serve the different security and access needs of your storage area
network, but only one zone set can be active at one time. Managing zone sets
consists of the following tasks:
■
Creating zone sets
■
Activating and deactivating zone sets
■
Copying a zone to a zone set
■
Removing a zone from one zone set or from all zone sets
■
Removing a zone set
■
Removing all zoning definitions
Note:
Changes that you make to the zoning database are limited to the
managed switch and do not propagate to the rest of the fabric. To
distribute changes to configured zone sets fabric wide, you must edit
the zoning databases on the individual switches.

Activating and Deactivating a Zone Set
You must activate a zone set to apply its zoning definitions to the fabric. Only one
zone set can be active at one time. When you activate a zone set, the switch
distributes that zone set to the temporary zoning database on every switch in the
fabric. If Auto Save is enabled, the new active zone set is saved in the permanent
zoning database also. Refer to ”Auto Save” on page 3-14.
The purpose of the deactivate function is to suspend all fabric zoning which
results in free communication fabric wide or no communication depending on the
default visibility setting. Refer to ”Default Visibility” on page 3-14 for more
information. It is not necessary to deactivate the active zone set before activating
a new one.
■
To activate a zone set, open the Zoning menu and select Activate Zone Set
to open the Activate Zone Set window. Select a zone set from the Select

Switch Administrative States
The switch administrative state determines the operational state of the switch and
its ports. The switch administrative state exists in two forms: the configured
administrative state and the current administrative state.
■
The configured administrative state is the state that is saved in the switch
configuration and is preserved across switch resets. SANbox Manager
always makes changes to the configured administrative state.
■
The current administrative state is the state that is applied to the switch for
temporary purposes and is not retained across switch resets. The current
administrative state is set using the Set Switch command. Refer to the ”Set
Command” on page A-23.
Table 4-4 describes the administrative state values.

4.8.1.3
Domain ID and Domain ID Lock
The domain ID is a unique Fibre Channel identifier for the switch. The Fibre
Channel address consists of the domain ID, port ID, and the Arbitrated Loop
Physical Address (ALPA). The maximum number of switches within a fabric is 239
with each switch having a unique domain ID.
Switches come from the factory with the domain IDs unlocked. This means that if
there is a domain ID conflict in the fabric, the switch with the highest principal
priority, or the principal switch, will reassign any domain ID conflicts and establish
the fabric. If you lock the domain ID on a switch and a domain ID conflict occurs,
one of the switches will isolate as a separate fabric and the Logged-In LEDs on
both switches will flash to show the affected ports. Refer to the ”Set Config
Command” on page A-25 for information about the switch keyword and the
Domain ID Lock and Principal Priority parameters.
4-14
59022-05 A
4 – Managing Switches
Configuring a Switch
If you connect a new switch to an existing fabric with its domain ID unlocked, and
a domain conflict occurs, the new switch will isolate as a separate fabric.
However, you can remedy this by resetting the new switch or taking it offline then
back online. The principal switch will reassign the domain ID and the switch will
join the fabric.
Note:
Domain ID reassignment is not reflected in zoning that is defined by
domain ID and port number pair. You must reconfigure zones that are
affected by domain ID reassignment.
4.8.1.4
Broadcast Support
Broadcast is supported on the SANbox2 which allows for TCP/IP support.
Broadcast is implemented using the proposed standard specified in Multi-Switch
Broadcast for FC-SW-3, T11 Presentation Number T11/02-031v0. FSPF is used
to setup a fabric spanning tree used in transmission of broadcast frames.
Broadcast frames are retransmitted on all ISLs indicated in the spanning tree and
all online F/FL_Ports. Broadcast zoning is supported with Access Control List
(ACL) and Virtual Private Fabric (VPF) hard zones. When a broadcast frame is
received, these hard zones are enforced at the F/FL_Port. If the originator of the
broadcast is in a hard zone, the frame is retransmitted on all online F/FL_Ports
within the hard zone. If the originator of the broadcast frame is not in a hard zone,
the frame is retransmitted on online F/FL_Ports that are not in a hard zone.
4.8.1.5
Inband Management
Inband management is the ability to manage switches across inter-switch links
using SANbox Manager, SNMP, IPFC, management server, or the application
programming interface. The switch comes from the factory with inband
management enabled. If you disable inband management on a particular switch,
you can no longer communicate with that switch by means other than a direct
Ethernet or serial connection.

The switch timeout values determine the timeout values for all ports on the switch.
Table 4-5 describes the switch timeout parameters. The R_A_TOV, R_T_TOV, or
E_D_TOV values must be the same for all switches in the fabric.
Note:
Timeout values can be changed only if the switch is offline.

Configuring a Switch
4.8.2.1
IP Configuration
The IP configuration identifies the switch on the Ethernet network and determines
which boot method to use. Table 4-6 describes the IP configuration parameters.
Table 4-6 IP Configuration Parameters
Parameter
4-18
Description
IP Address
Internet Protocol (IP) address for the Ethernet port. The default and
PROM mode value is 10.0.0.1.
Subnet mask
Subnet mask address for the Ethernet port. The default and PROM
mode value is 255.0.0.0.
Boot Method
Choose one of the following methods:
■ Static - Uses the IP configuration parameters entered in the
Switch Properties window.
■ BootP - Acquires the IP configuration from a BootP server.
■ RARP (Reverse Address Resolution Protocol) - Acquires the IP
address from an RARP server. An RARP request is broadcast
with up to three retries, each at 5 second intervals. If no IP
address is obtained, the switch reverts to the previously
configured IP address.
■ DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) - Acquires the IP
configuration from a DHCP server. If no satisfactory lease is
obtained, the DHCP client attempts to use the previously
configured lease. If the previous lease cannot be used, no IP
address will be assigned to this switch in order to avoid an IP
address conflict. The DHCP server must then be made available.
If a BootP, RARP, or DHCP server is not available, the switch will
boot. However, you will be unable to manage the switch through the
Ethernet connection. To manage a switch under these
circumstances, the connection must be made through the serial port
or inband through another switch.
Gateway
IP gateway address. The default and PROM mode value is
10.0.0.254.
59022-05 A

Configuring a Switch
4.8.2.2
Remote Logging
The Remote Logging (syslog) feature enables saving of the log information to a
remote host that supports the syslog protocol. When enabled, the log entries are
sent to the syslog host at the IP address that you specify in the Logging Host IP
Address field. Log entries are saved in the internal switch log whether this feature
is enabled or not.
To save log information to a remote host, you must edit the syslog.conf file and
then restart the syslog daemon. The syslog.conf file on the remote host must
contain an entry that specifies the name of the log file in which to save error
messages. Add the following line to the syslog.conf file. A <tab> separates the
selector field (local0.info) and action field which contains the log file path name
(/var/adm/messages/messages.name).
local0.info <tab> /var/adm/messages.name
4.8.2.3
SNMP Configuration
The SNMP configuration defines how authentication traps are managed.
Table 4-7 describes the SNMP configuration parameters.
Table 4-7 SNMP Configuration Parameters

Read community password (up to 32 characters) that authorizes an
SNMP agent to read information from the switch. This is a write-only
field. The value on the switch and the SNMP management server
must be the same. The default is “public”.
Trap Community
Trap community password (up to 32 characters) that authorizes an
SNMP agent to receive traps. This is a write-only field. The value on
the switch and the SNMP management server must be the same.
The default is “public”.
Location
Specifies the switch location. The default is "undefined".
Authentication
Trap
Enables or disables the reporting of SNMP authentication failures. If
enabled, a notification trap is sent when incorrect community string
values are used. The default value is "False".
Write
Community
Write community password (up to 32 characters) that authorizes an
SNMP agent to write information to the switch. This is a write-only
field. The value on the switch and the SNMP management server
must be the same. The default is “private”.

SNMP configuration parameters.
Table 4-8 SNMP Trap Configuration Parameters
Parameter
Description
Trap Enabled
Check box to enable or disable the trap.
Trap Address
Specifies the IP address to which SNMP traps are sent. A maximum
of 5 trap addresses are supported. The default address for trap 1 is
10.0.0.254. The default address for traps 2–5 is 0.0.0.0.
Trap Port
The port number on which the trap is sent.
Trap Severity
Specifies a severity level to assign to the trap. Open the pull-down
menu and choose a level. Traps must be enabled to access this
pull-down menu. Trap severity levels include Unknown, Emergency,
Alert, Critical, Error, Warning, Notify, Info, Debug, and Mark.
4.8.3
Configuration Backup
Changes made to the switch since it was manufactured can be saved to a file in
non-volatile memory. However the backup is lost if the switch is reset. Use the
FTP User Images procedures to save the configdata file to the workstation. (In
FTP, no directory listing is available. The configuration backup file is always
named configdata.) Refer to the ”Config Command” on page A-7 for information
about backing up a configuration.
4.8.4
Configuration Restore
Switch configurations can be “cloned” to easily propagate an identical
configuration to other switches. Use the FTP User Images procedures with the
Put command to send the previously saved (using config backup) configdata file
to the switch. Use the Config Restore command to return the switch configuration
to the previously saved configuration. The switch is automatically reset upon a
successful restore. Refer to the ”Config Command” on page A-7 for information
about restoring a configuration.

Archiving a Switch
4.9
Archiving a Switch
You can create an .XML archive file containing the configuration parameters.
Archived parameters include the following:
■
Switch properties and statistics
■
IP configuration
■
SNMP configuration
■
Port properties and statistics
■
Alarm configuration
■
Zoning configuration
This archive file can be used to restore the configuration on the same switch or on
a replacement switch. You can also use the archive file as a template for
configuring new switches to add to a fabric. Security settings and user account
information are not archived. The archive can be used later to restore the switch.
Refer to ”Restoring a Switch” on page 4-21 for more information.
To archive a switch, do the following:
1.
Open the Switch menu and select Archive.
2.
In the Save window, enter a file name.
3.
Choose the Save button.
4.10
Restoring a Switch
Restoring a switch loads the archived switch configuration parameters to the
switch. The switch configuration must be archived before it can be restored.
Furthermore, the switch archive must be compatible with the switch to be
restored; that is, you cannot restore a SANbox2-8c switch with a SANbox2-16
archive. Refer to ”Archiving a Switch” on page 4-21 for more information.
To restore a switch, do the following:
59022-05 A
1.
Log in to the fabric through the switch you want to restore. You cannot
restore a switch over an ISL.
2.
Open the Switch menu and select Restore.
3.
In the Restore window, enter the archive file name or browse for the file. This
archive file must be one that was produced by the SANbox Manager Archive
function. Configuration backup files created with the Config Backup
command are not compatible with the SANbox Manager Restore function.
4.
Choose the Restore button.

4 – Managing Switches
Managing Firmware
4.11
Managing Firmware
The switch memory is partitioned for two firmware images. This can be useful
when upgrading so that both the old an new firmware can be maintained on the
switch. When you install new firmware, the currently active firmware is preserved
and the new firmware becomes the second image or the fallback version. You
have the ability to activate either firmware image. If you activate the fallback
firmware, the current firmware becomes the fallback version.
Note:
To provide consistent performance throughout the fabric, ensure that
all switches are running the same version of firmware.
4.11.1
Installing Firmware
Installing firmware involves loading the firmware image file on the switch,
unpacking the image file, and resetting the switch. SANbox Manager does this in
one operation and prompts you to reset the switch to activate the new firmware.
To install firmware, do the following:
1.
In the faceplate display, open the Switch menu and select Load Firmware.
2.
In the Firmware Upload window, choose the Select button to browse and
select the firmware file to be uploaded.
3.
Choose the Start button to begin the firmware load process.
4.
When the loading is complete, choose the Close button to close the
Firmware Upload window.
5.
The application prompts you to reset the switch. Choose the OK button to
reset the switch and activate the new firmware.
4.11.2
Activating the Fallback Firmware
To activate the fallback firmware, do the following:
4-22
1.
In the faceplate display, open the Switch menu and select Firmware
Fallback.
2.
The Firmware Fallback window displays the file name of the current
firmware and the fallback firmware versions. Choose the Yes button to
select the fallback firmware or No to cancel.
3.
The application prompts you to reset the switch. Choose the OK button to
reset the switch and activate the new fallback firmware.

Changing Port Administrative States
The port administrative state determines the operational state of a port. The port
administrative state exists in two forms: the configured administrative state and
the current administrative state.
■
The configured administrative state is the state that is saved in the switch
configuration and is preserved across switch resets. SANbox Manager
always makes changes to the configured administrative state.
■
The current administrative state is the state that is applied to the port for
temporary purposes and is not preserved across switch resets. The current
administrative state is set using the Set Port command. ”Set Port Command”
on page A-36.
Table 5-7 describes the port administrative states. To change port administrative
state, do the following:
1.
Select one or more ports in the faceplate display.

zone using worldwide name or domain ID and port ID membership. If there
are more than 65 members in the zone, the TL_Port will be unable to
communicate with the fabric.
5.2.5
Changing Buffer-to-Buffer Credits
Each port has a receive buffer capacity of 12 Fibre Channel frames or credits
which is equal to approximately 24K bytes. Port buffer credits can be changed on
ports to allow connections to non-QLogic switches that have different port buffer
capacities. To change port buffer credits, do the following:
1.
Select one or more ports in the faceplate display.
2.
Open the Port menu and select Port Properties.
3.

Configuring Ports
5.2.7
Extending Port Credits
Each port is supported by a data buffer with a 12 credit capacity; that is, 12
maximum sized frames. For fibre optic cables, this enables full bandwidth service
over a distance of 20 kilometers at 1 Gbps (0.6 credits/Km), or 10 kilometers at 2
Gbps (1.2 credits/Km). Longer distances can be spanned at full bandwidth by
borrowing credits from designated donor ports thus pooling the buffer capacities.
This is called credit extension. Each donor port contributes 11 credits to the pool
from which the recipient ports can draw. For example, one donor port contributes
11 credits to the pool from which a recipient draws for a total of 23 credits (11+12).
This provides approximately 38 Km at 1 Gbps (23÷0.6) or 19 Km at 2 Gbps
(23÷1.2).
To extend port buffer credits, do the following:
1.
In the faceplate display, select the ports that are to serve as donor ports.
Open the Port menu and select Port Properties. In the Port Properties
window, choose the Donor radio button and choose OK.
Note:
5-12
Donor ports cannot transmit or receive data.
2.
In the faceplate display, select the recipient ports. Recipient ports must be
configured as G_Ports or F_Ports. Open the Port menu and select
Extended Credits. This opens the Extended Credits window shown in
Figure 5-3.
3.
Distribute the borrowed credits by incrementing the Ext Credits Requested
field for the recipient ports up to the total credits in the pool. Choose OK. If
you exceed this total, a message will be entered in the alarm log indicating
that some recipient ports did not receive the requested credits.

Testing Ports
5.3
Testing Ports
The port loopback tests verify correct port operation by sending a frame out
through the loop, and then verifying that the frame received matches the frame
that was sent. Only one port can be tested at a time for each type of test. The Port
Loopback Test window shown in Figure 5-4 presents the following tests:
■
SerDes level (Internal) - The SerDes level test verifies port circuitry. The
SerDes level test sends a test frame from the ASIC through the SerDes chip
and back to the ASIC for the selected ports. The port passes the test if the
frame that was sent by the ASIC matches the test frame that was received.
This test disrupts communication on the selected port.
■
SFP level (External) - The SFP level test also verifies port circuitry. The
SFP level test sends a test frame from the ASIC through the SerDes chip,
through the SFP transceiver fitted with a loopback plug, and back to the
ASIC for the selected ports. The port passes the test if the test frame that
was sent by the ASIC matches the test frame that was received. This test
disrupts communication on the selected port.
■
Node-to-Node (Online) - The Node-to-Node test verifies communications
between the port and its device node or device loop. The port being tested
must be online and connected to a remote device. The port passes the test if
the frame that was sent by the ASIC matches the frame that was received.
This test does not disrupt communication on the selected port.

Testing Ports
Note:
The SerDes (Internal) and SFP (External) level tests disrupt
communication on the selected port. The Node-to-Node (Online) level
test does not disrupt communication, because the requires that the port
be online.
To run the internal, external, or online port loopback test on a port, do the
following:
59022-05 A
1.
In the faceplate display, select the port to be tested.
2.
Open the Port menu and select Port Loopback Test to open the Port
Loopback Test window.
3.
In the Test Selection area, choose the radio button for the type of loopback
test to be run (Internal, External, or Online). If you choose the internal or
external test, SANbox Manager will prompt you to confirm that the port state
needs to be changed to the diagnostic state. Choose the OK button and
SANbox Manager will change the port state.
4.
Enter the frame count, frame size, and choose a test pattern radio button.
You may use the default pattern or enter an 8-digit pattern (hex). For online
test, you can select the Terminate Test Upon Error check box if you want
the test to stop should it encounter an error.
5.
Choose the Start Test button to begin the test. The Test Results area
displays the test status, number of frames sent, and number of errors found.
6.
To test another port, open the Select Port pull-down menu and select
another port (number) and test type (Internal, External, or Online) in the Test
Selection area.
7.
Choose the Start Test button to begin the next test. Observe the results in
the Test Results area.

Appendix A
Command Line Interface
Each switch contains a Telnet server. This server allows a Telnet client to establish
a Telnet session with the switch to retrieve information or to configure parameters
using the Command Line Interface (CLI). The CLI enables you to perform a
variety of fabric and switch management tasks through an Ethernet or a serial port
connection.
A.1
Logging On to a Switch
To log on to a switch using Telnet, open a command line window on the
management workstation and enter the Telnet command followed by the switch IP
address:
/> telnet 123.45.67.89
A Telnet window opens prompting you for a login. Enter an account name and
password. Switches come from the factory with the following user account already
defined:
Account name: admin
Password: password
Authority: Admin
This user account provides full access to the switch and its configuration. After
planning your fabric management needs and creating your own user accounts,
consider changing the password for this account. Refer to ”Commands” on
page A-3 for more information about authority levels. Refer to the ”User
Command” on page A-69 for information about creating user accounts.
Note:
59022-05 A
A switch supports a combined maximum of 15 logins. This includes
SANbox Manager inband and out-of-band logins, Application
Programming Interface (API) inband and out-of-band logins and Telnet
logins. Of this 15, there can be a combined maximum of 10 SANbox
Manager and API logins. Additional logins will be refused.

Commands
The command set provides for User and Admin authority levels.
■
User authority grants viewing access to the fabric and switches using the
Show command and other read-only commands.
■
Admin authority includes the User authority and grants permission to use the
Admin command. The Admin Start command opens an admin session which
provides access to the commands that change switch and fabric
configurations. Refer to the ”Admin Command” on page A-4.
Note:
Admin authority is enforced only if fabric security is enabled. By
default, fabric security is disabled. Refer to ”Set Setup Command” on
page A-37 (System keyword) for more about setting fabric security.
The commands and their page numbers are listed by authority level in Table A-1.

Number of class x words received by this port.
ClassXWordsOut
Number of class x words sent by this port.
DecodeError
Decoding error detected.
FBusy
Number of times the switch sent a F_BSY because Class 2
frame could not be delivered within ED_TOV time. Number
of class 2 and class 3 fabric busy (F_BSY) frames
generated by this port in response to incoming frames.
This usually indicates a busy condition on the fabric or
N_port that is preventing delivery of this frame.
Flowerrors
Received a frame when there were no available credits.
FReject
Number of frames from devices that were rejected.
InvalidCRC
Invalid CRC detected.
InvalidDestAddr
Invalid destination address detected.
LIP ALPD ALPS
Number of F7, AL_PS LIPs, or AL_PD (vendor specific)
resets, performed.
LIPF7ALPS
This LIP is used to reinitialize the loop. An L_port, identified
by AL_PS, may have noticed a performance degradation
and is trying to restore the loop.

Link Failures
Number of optical link failures detected by this port. A link
failure is a loss of synchronization for a period of time
greater than the value of R_T_TOV or by loss of signal
while not in the offline state. A loss of signal causes the
switch to attempt to re-establish the link. If the link is not
re-established by the time specified by R_T_TOV, a link
failure is counted. A link reset is performed after a link
failure.
Login
Time when user logged in.
Logout
Time when user logged out.
LoopTimeouts
A two (2) second timeout as specified by FC-AL-2.
LossOfSync
Number of synchronization losses (>100 ms) detected by

User Action
The zone set you attempting to activate
contains port based zoning and there are
switches in the fabric that might not
support this type of zoning. Some E_Ports
may isolate. Do you wish to continue?
Not all switch vendors support port-based
zoning. Consult the manual for these
vendors’ switches to determine whether to
apply this zoning configuration to the
fabric.
The zoning configuration has been
changed. Would you like to apply your
changes?
The zoning configuration includes
changes that have not been applied to the
switch. Select Yes to apply the changes to
the switch before continuing, or select No
to discard the changes and continue.
There is already a zone by that name in a
different Zone set. Would you like to add
that zone to this Zone Set?
If the existing zone is the same as zone
that the user wants to add to this zoneset,
then continue. Otherwise, select a unique
name for the new zone and retry the
operation.
There is already a zone set with that
name.
Or
There is already a zone with that name.
Or
There is already a alias with that name.
Select a unique name for the new object
and retry the operation.
This zoning configuration exceeds the
limits for this switch.
Remove unnecessary objects from the
zoning configuration and retry the
operation.
Unable to create alias.
The zoning configuration already contains
the maximum allowed zoning aliases.
Delete any unwanted aliases and retry the
operation.
You are about to save a zoning
configuration that was not completely read
in. Saving this version will make the
incomplete database permanent.
An error was encountered while reading
the zoning database from the switch, and
so the database edited by the user may be
missing some zoning information.
You have zones in the orphan zone set.
These are not saved in the switch. Would
you like to continue?
Orphan zones are not applied to the
switch. If the orphan zones are to be
applied to the switch, they must first be
added to a configured zoneset. Orphan set
is not saved on SANbox2 switches, and is
used only in the application while
configuring zoning information.
