Licensed Features
Licensed Features
The iSR6200 router has features that are available by a license key.
Data Migration
The iSR6200 router provides data migration as an optional, licensed feature.
The iSR6200-based data migration feature is block-based and independent of a
SAN, server, storage protocol (Fibre Channel and iSCSI), and storage vendor.
Because application downtime during data migration is always critical, iSR6200
data migration supports both online (local and remote) and offline data migration
across Fibre Channel and iSCSI storage arrays. Even offline data migration using
the iSR6200 is designed to minimize application downtime by allowing you to
configure all migration related tasks while the application remains online, and to
migrate the data at a very high speed while the application is offline. This feature
is designed such that any person with knowledge of SAN or SAN storage
administration can migrate data.
Remote SAN Island Connectivity
The iSR6200 router supports inter-connecting remote SAN islands, as shown in

iSR6200 Router Chassis
This configuration has the following additional requirements:

At least one Fibre Channel port of iSR6200 connected to Fibre Channel
SAN.

Accessibility between the GbE ports on the router, port IP addresses of the
remote router, and GbE port IP addresses of the local routers.

Accessibility between the remote iSR6200 management port IP address and
local iSR6200 management port IP address.
When connecting SANs over long distances, you must determine the round-trip
latencies between two router connections. You can discover these round-trip
latencies using the ping command in the CLI. (See the iSR6200 Command Line
Interface (CLI) User’s Guide.)
Using this round-trip latency number, you can determine the window scaling factor
for GbE port, as described in “Performance Tuning” on page 2-4. By default,
window scaling is set to 1 (64K) TCP window size.
To map remote Fibre Channel devices to a local SAN:

2.
If the remote router is not already associated with a local router, associate
the two routers with each other using one of these user interfaces:

The Add Remote Router wizard (see the iSR6200 Router Manager
User’s Guide).

The CLI command remotepeer add (see the iSR6200 Command
Line Interface (CLI) User’s Guide).
Create the initiator to target mapping using one of these methods:

The Map Remote Initiator/Target wizard (see the iSR6200 Router
Manager User’s Guide).

The CLI remotemap add command (see the iSR6200 Command

Each blade is capable of simultaneously driving all six fans in both PCMs.
Generally, only one blade controls both fans, running them at a normal speed.
However, if the system detects a higher-than-expected temperature on either side
of the blade, it forces the fans to run at full speed. After the temperature is back to
normal, the fans resume running at their normal speed.

The following describes the fan speed and temperature parameters listed in
Table 1-1.

High Fan Speed Temperature—When a sensor detects a temperature that
exceeds this value, the fans run at their maximum RPM speed. The system
logs the event and the system fault LED blinks five times every two seconds.

Low Fan Speed Recovery Temperature—When the fans are running at
their maximum RPM and all sensors report values less than this value, the
fan speed resets to normal.

Critical Temperature—When a sensor detects a temperature that exceeds
this value, the system powers down the blade. When this happens, the
CPUs enter sleep state 5. The system sets the peripheral component
interface (PCI) power state of capable devices to D3, and then turns off the
power supplies not essential to wake up the CPUs. When the temperature
goes below the Recovery Temperature value, the sensor that reported the
over-temperature value generates an SMB_ALERT.

Recovery Temperature—Value at which a sensor generates an
SMB_ALERT to wake up the CPU and cause the blade to reboot.
iSR6200 Router Blades
Each chassis supports one or two hot-pluggable blades. The base configuration of
an iSR6200 router blade has a dual-core CPU, 1,024MB memory, boot Flash, and
internal and external I/O ports. (For detailed specifications, see Appendix A.)

Fibre Channel Transceivers
Each port is served by an SFP optical transceiver and is capable of 2, 4, or 8Gbps
transmission. SFPs are hot-pluggable. User ports can self-discover both the port
type and transmission speed when connected to public devices or switches.
ISR651101-00 H
1-13
1–Introduction
iSR6200 Router Blades
The iSR6200 router supports SFP optical transceivers for the Fibre Channel ports.
A transceiver converts electrical signals to and from optical laser signals to
transmit and receive data. Duplex fiber optic cables plug into the transceivers,
which then connect to the devices. For example, a 2Gbps or 4Gbps Fibre Channel
port can transmit at 2Gbps or 4Gbps; however, the transceiver must also be
capable of delivering these rates.
The SFP transceivers are hot pluggable. You can remove or install a transceiver
while the router is operating without harming the router or the transceiver.
However, this interrupts communication with the connected device. For details
about installing and removing SFP optical transceivers, see “Installing the
Transceivers” on page 3-6.

Devices
When planning router use, consider the number of devices and the anticipated
demand. This determines the number of ports required and, in turn, the number of
routers.
The router uses SFP transceivers in the 8Gbps Fibre Channel (FC) ports, but
some Fibre Channel devices may not use the same transceivers. Consider
whether the Fibre Channel device you want to connect the router to uses SFP or
gigabit interface converters (GBIC) transceivers, and choose fibre optic cables
accordingly. Use LC-type cable connectors for SFP transceivers and SC-type
cable connectors for GBIC transceivers. Also consider the transmission speed
compatibility of your devices, adapters, switches, and SFPs.
ISR651101-00 H
2-1
2–Planning
Device Access
Device Access
Consider device access needs within the Fibre Channel and iSCSI SANs.
Controlling access to Fibre Channel device LUNs requires mapping Fibre
Channel device LUNs to specific iSCSI initiators. You may map LUNs to more
than one initiator. Giving multiple initiators access to a LUN requires access
management.
Fibre Channel
The Fibre Channel ports automatically discover all Fibre Channel target devices,
whether connected directly (loop) or by fabric (switch).
iSCSI
The iSCSI ports automatically present targets discovered on the Fibre Channel
ports. If the Fibre Channel target’s LUN 0 is a controller LUN, it becomes
accessible (mapped) to all iSCSI initiators. All data LUNs are inaccessible until
mapped. The exception is if LUN 0 is a controller LUN, it is mapped automatically
to allow for management of the Fibre Channel target controller.
When an iSCSI initiator logs on, the router records the initiator’s iSCSI name and
IP address. The management interface—CLI and SANsurfer Router
Manager—uses the initiator information to simplify the mapping process.
Fibre Channel Switches Required for VPGroups
iSR6200 uses QLogic Host Bus Adapter technology and is compatible with all
Fibre Channel switches from Brocade, Cisco, McData, and QLogic. If you want to
use more than one VPGroup, you must use Fibre Channel switches.
Fibre Channel Performance
The iSR6200 router supports Fibre Channel service at transmission rates of 2, 4,
or 8 Gbps with a maximum frame size of 2,148 bytes. Related performance
characteristics include the following:



Distance
Bandwidth
Latency
Distance
Consider the physical distance between Fibre Channel devices. Choose SFP
transceivers that are compatible with the cable type and distance.
2-2
ISR651101-00 H
2–Planning
iSCSI Performance
Each Fibre Channel port is supported by a data buffer with a three-credit capacity;
that is, three maximum-sized frames. For fibre optic cables, this enables full
bandwidth over approximately 2.5 kilometers at 2Gbps (1.2 credits/Km).
Beyond these distances, however, the connection loses some efficiency because
the transmitting port must wait for an acknowledgement before sending the next
frame.
Bandwidth
Bandwidth is a measure of the volume of data that can be transmitted at a specific
transmission rate. A 2Gbps Fibre Channel port can transmit or receive at nominal
rates of 2Gbps, depending on the device to which it is connected. This
corresponds to actual bandwidth value of 212MB.
Latency
Latency is a measure of how fast a transaction travels through the router.
iSCSI Performance
The iSR6200 router supports Ethernet service at transmission rates of 1000Mbps,
100Mbps, or 10Mbps with an MTU size of 1500 or 9000 (jumbo frames).
NOTE
An MTU size greater than 1500 should only be used when the router is
connected to a 1000Mbps Ethernet network.
Related performance characteristics include the following:



Distance
Bandwidth
Latency
Distance
Consider the physical distance between routers.This is usually measured in
round-trip delay. Round-trip delays range anywhere from less than 1 millisecond
to as great as 250 milliseconds.
Bandwidth
Bandwidth is a measure of the volume of data that can be transmitted at a specific
transmission rate. WAN data rates range from 1.5 megabits per second (T1) to
greater than 600 megabits per second (OC-12).

Performance Tuning
Latency
Latency is a measure of how fast a transaction travels through the router and LAN
or WAN.
Performance Tuning
Proper configuration maximizes the router’s performance. Knowing the round-trip
delay (distance between the router and iSCSI initiators) and WAN effective data
rate (connection type) allows you to tune the router for optimal performance. The
following tables provide TCP Window Size settings for specific WAN
environments. The TCP Window Size is configured as two parameters: Window
Size and Scaling Factor. See the iSR6200 Router Manager User’s Guide and the
iSR6200 Command Line Interface (CLI) User’s Guide for configuring the TCP
window size.

High Availability
A dual-blade iSR6200 router supports high availability, which provides link-level,
switch-level, and blade-level failure protection. To make this effective, you must
connect the iSCSI hosts to both iSR6200 blades. For details, see “Connecting
iSCSI Hosts to the iSR6200” on page 4-16.
Management
SANsurfer Router Manager and the CLI run on a management workstation used
to configure, control, and maintain the router. Support platforms include Windows,
Solaris, and Linux. The SANsurfer Router Manager utility is installed and
executed on the workstation.
The router supports the following management interfaces:

SANsurfer Router Manager is a graphical user interface (GUI) utility that
runs on a management workstation (see the iSR6200 Router Manager
User’s Guide).

CLI is the command line interface that runs on the router; users can access
the CLI by means of Telnet or the serial port (see the iSR6200 Command
Line Interface (CLI) User’s Guide).

SNMP provides router status, traps, and alerts (for details, see Appendix B).
ISR651101-00 H

Recovery
Recovery
You should have a process in place to recover from a possible router failure.
Consider the following when developing a recovery process for the router:

Save all firmware image files (updates) in a safe, well-known place, because
you may:




Save the router’s configuration (as a new file) after every configuration
change, because you may:



Want to revert to a previous firmware version
Need the firmware image when replacing a single-blade router
Need the firmware image when adding a router to your site
Want to revert to a previous configuration
Need to configure a replacement blade in a single-blade router
Save the router’s LUN mappings (as a new file) after every mapping change,
because you may:



Want to revert to a previous LUN mapping
Need to LUN-map a replacement blade in a single-blade router
Want to duplicate the LUN mapping on a second router (for
redundancy)
NOTE
For more details on recovering a router blade, see “iSR6200 Chassis
Blades” on page 7-1.
Services
You can configure your router to suit the demands of your environment using a
variety of router services. Familiarize yourself with the following router services
and determine which ones you need:
2-8

Telnet enables you to manage the router over a Telnet connection.

Router management provides for out-of-band management of the router
with SANsurfer Router Manager.

SNMP enables you to monitor the router using third-party applications that
use SNMP.

Network time protocol (NTP) enables you to synchronize the router and
the workstation dates and times with an NTP server. NTP is disabled (not
configured) by default.
ISR651101-00 H
2–Planning
Security

File transfer protocol (FTP) enables you to transfer files rapidly between
the workstation and router using FTP.

Secure SHell (SSH) provides secure and encrypted connections to
traditionally non-encrypted services.
Security
Passwords provide router security. SANsurfer Router Manager requires a
password each time a user logs into the utility. After you are connected,
SANsurfer Router Manager prompts for an administrative password before it
accepts configuration changes.
The CLI also requires the user to enter a user ID and password to start. The CLI
must be in an admin session to perform any set operations. An admin session
requires a password.
The default password for both these management utilities is password for the
default user ID of guest. The default administrative password is config.
After you have logged on, you can change the password using the utility’s security
features.

Mounting the Router
You can either place the router on a flat surface or mount it in a 19-inch Electronic
Industries Alliance (EIA) rack. See the product specification for weight and
dimensions. Rack mounting requires a QLogic rack mounting kit; contact QLogic
for more information.
!
WARNING
Mount routers in the rack so that the weight is distributed evenly. An
unevenly loaded rack can become unstable, possibly resulting in equipment
damage or personal injury.
AVERTISSEMENT
Installer les routeurs dans l’armoire informatique de sorte que le poids soit
réparti uniformément. Une armoire informatique déséquilibré risque
d'entraîner des blessures ou d'endommager l'équipement.
WARNUNG
Bauen Sie die Router so in das Rack ein, dass das Gewicht gleichmäßig
verteilt ist. Ein Rack mit ungleichmäßiger Gewichtsverteilung kann
schwanken/umfallen und Gerätbeschädigung oder Verletzung verursachen.
ADVERTENCIA
Monte los enrutadores en el estante de modo que el peso se distribuya de
manera uniforme. Un estante cuya carga no esté distribuida de manera
uniforme puede ser inestable y podría dañar el equipo o causar lesiones
personales.

Installing the iSR6200 Router
CAUTION
 If the router is mounted in a closed or multi-rack assembly, the operating
temperature of the rack environment may be greater than the ambient
temperature. Be sure to install the chassis in an environment that is
compatible with the maximum rated ambient temperature.
 Do not restrict chassis air flow. Allow 16cm (6.5 inches) minimum
clearance at the front and rear of the router (surface mount) or rack for
service access and ventilation.
 Multiple rack-mounted units connected to the AC supply circuit may
overload that circuit or overload the AC supply wiring. Consider the
power source capacity and the total power usage of all routers on the
circuit.
 Reliable grounding in the rack must be maintained from the router
chassis to the AC power source.
Installing the Transceivers
The router supports a variety of SFP transceivers.
CAUTION
Ensure that you insert the 8Gb or 10Gb SFP transceiver into the correct
port. These transceiver types are not interchangeable.

To install a transceiver, insert the transceiver into the port, and then gently
press until it snaps in place.

To remove a transceiver, gently press the transceiver into the port to release
tension, pull the release tab or lever, and then remove the transceiver.
Different transceiver manufacturers have different release mechanisms.
Consult the documentation for your transceiver.
NOTE
The transceiver fits only one way. If the transceiver does not install under
gentle pressure, flip it over and try again.

Connecting the Router to AC Power
!
WARNING
This product is supplied with a three-wire power cable and plug for the
user’s safety. Use this power cable in conjunction with a properly grounded
outlet to avoid electrical shock. An electrical outlet that is not correctly wired
could place hazardous voltage on metal parts of the router chassis. The
customer must make sure the outlet is correctly wired and grounded to
prevent electrical shock.
You may require a different power cable in some countries because the plug
on the cable supplied with the equipment will not fit your electrical outlet. In
this case, you must supply your own power cable. The cable must meet the
following requirements:
 For 125 volt electrical service: the cable must be rated at 10 amperes
and be approved by UL and CSA.
 For 250 volt electrical service: the cable must be rated at 10 amperes,
meet requirements of H05VV-F, and be approved by VDE, SEMKO, and
DEMKO.

Configuration
This chapter describes how to configure the iSR6200 router to support virtual port
groups (VPGroups or VPGs) and LUN mapping.
Some storage arrays limit the number of LUNs exposed to a host to 256 LUNs.
Each iSR6200 router blade supports up to four VPGs, making it possible for these
storage arrays to present up to 1,024 LUNs per blade.
When configuring VPGs on the iSR6200 router, follow these guidelines:

All Fibre Channel (FC) virtual ports from a single VPG must be part of only
one logical host on the storage array.

Fibre Channel ports from different VPGs must not be part of the same logical
host on the storage array.

A specific LUN can be presented to one and only one VPG. It can be
presented to other Fibre Channel hosts, but only one VPG on a specific
iSR6200 router (chassis).
The following sections describe how to configure VPGs and the Fibre Channel
arrays connected to them:

“Enabling Virtual Port Groups” on page 4-2

“Zoning Virtual Port Groups on the SAN” on page 4-9

“Configuring Fibre Channel Array Hosts and LUN Assignments” on

Enabling Virtual Port Groups
Enabling Virtual Port Groups
Each iSR6250 router blade has one virtual port group (VPG) enabled by default,
which gives iSCSI hosts access to 256 LUNs. You can enable and configure
additional VPGs to give iSCSI hosts access to more than 256 distinct LUNS from
a specific Fibre Channel target array.
Each blade has VPG 1 enabled by default; VPG 1 is the primary virtual port group
and cannot be disabled. Enabling additional virtual port groups creates additional
logical Fibre Channel adapter initiator ports on the fabric. These ports act as
separate Fibre Channel adapter host ports, and additional 256 LUNs can be
presented to each of them. With all four VPGs enabled, a single iSR6250 blade
can access up to1,024 LUNs from a single target world wide port number
(WWPN).
You can view Virtual Port Group information using the show vpgroups command
in the CLI, as shown in the following example.

When connecting a dual-blade iSR6200 for high availability, connect one Fibre
Channel port from each blade to each of your fabrics (see Figure 4-7). This
topology provides link-level, switch-level, and blade-level failure protection. To
make this effective, you must connect the iSCSI hosts to both iSR6200 blades.
For details, see “Connecting iSCSI Hosts to the iSR6200” on page 4-16.

Configuring Fibre Channel Array Hosts and LUN Assignments
Configuring Fibre Channel Array Hosts and LUN
Assignments
When configuring Fibre Channel array hosts, you must treat each iSR6200 virtual
port group (VPG) as its own unique Fibre Channel host within the virtualized
storage array. This means if you have only one VPG enabled, the iSR6200 will
have only one host entity. If you enable two more VPGs, the iSR6200 presents
three separate host entities to your storage array.
Each host entity must contain WWPNs from the same VPG. Figure 4-8 shows a
correct configuration.
Figure 4-8. Correctly Configured Storage Array Using Virtual Port Groups
Do not simply group all Fibre Channel ports from the iSR6200 router into a single
host entity. Doing so defeats the purpose of virtual port groups, limiting you to 256
LUNs. It will also cause problems when you later try to restore access to
additional LUNS.

When assigning LUNs to your VPG host entities, do not assign the same LUN to
two VPG host entities. Figure 4-12 shows a valid LUN presentation. Each LUN is
presented to only one VPG. Any of these LUNs can be presented to any number
of other Fibre Channel hosts on the array, but can be presented to one and only
one VPG of the iSR6200.

Figure 4-13. Incorrectly Presenting LUN 3
Presenting the LUN at different LUN indexes for each VP will confuse the iSCSI
host MPIO software because it will see the same LUN WWLUNID at two different
indexes. This can cause the multipath I/O (MPIO) driver to panic and show a blue
screen. Without an MPIO driver, the system could corrupt data on the LUN,
without crashing—a situation you want to avoid.
Connecting iSCSI Hosts to the iSR6200
Upon logging into a Fibre Channel target WWPN, an iSR6200 blade presents an
iSCSI target to which iSCSI initiators can connect. This target is defined by its
iSCSI qualified name (IQN) string. To correctly connect iSCSI initiators to Fibre
Channel targets through the iSR6200, it is important to understand the
composition of the iSCSI target IQN string.

Notice that the IQN string does not contain any information about the physical

information indicating which physical iSR6200 Fibre Channel port the target
device is connected.
You can view the complete list of IQN strings that your iSR6200 is presenting with
the show presented_targets command in the CLI. For example:

Fibre Channel over IP
Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP) is a protocol used to transport Fibre Channel frames
over TCP/IP, thus providing SAN over WAN capabilities. FCIP is commonly used
to interconnect (merge) SANs that are separated by such a distance that a direct
connection is cost prohibitive or technically unfeasible.
This chapter provides the following information:

FCIP Attributes lists the attributes of FCIP implementation in the iSR6200.

“Configuring FCIP” on page 5-2 explains the parameters used in setting up
FCIP, E_Port and F_Port extensions, WAN characteristics, data
compression, bandwidth, and TCP window settings.
FCIP Attributes

NOTE
No action is taken on any of the settings until you complete the last step. To
cancel FCIP route configuration, enter q for any parameter.
To configure FCIP in the CLI:
1.
From a command prompt, enter the fciproute add command.
2.
Enable (or disable) the FCIP Interfaces FC & GE ports to be used by
the FCIP route.
3.
At the FC Port prompt, enter the number corresponding to the FC port to
be used for this FCIP route.
4.
At the GE Port prompt, enter the number corresponding to the GE port to
be used for this FCIP route.
5.
At the IP Address prompt, enter the router’s GE port IP address (the
router being configured).
6.
At the Subnet Mask prompt, enter the router’s GE port subnet mask.
7.
At the Gateway IP Address prompt, enter the router’s GE port gateway
IP address.
8.
At the Remote IP Address prompt, enter the remote (peer) router’s IP
address.
9.
At the MTU Size prompt, specify the maximum transmission unit (MTU),
either 0=Normal, 1=Jumbo, or 2=Other.
The MTU size is typically set to Normal (1,500 bytes). If all segments of
the WAN support jumbo frames (9,000 bytes), select Jumbo. The Other
option is typically used for WANs using encryption that requires the frame to
be less than 1,500 bytes due to encryption overhead.

10.
At the TCP Window Size prompt, specify the window size for the WAN as
determined in “TCP Window Settings” on page 5-15.
11.
At the Window Scaling prompt, enable or disable this setting. Window
scaling must be enabled when using a Window Scaling Factor (see
next step) greater than zero.
12.
At the Window Scaling Factor prompt, enter a value from 0 through
9 as scaling factor, based on the TCP Window Size for the WAN
specified in Step 10 (see “TCP Window Settings” on page 5-15).
13.
(Optional) Changing the TCP port number at the TCP Port No. prompt
should not be required. If you change this value, do not use a well-known
TCP port number. The TCP port numbers on both the local and remote
routers should be the same.
14.
At the GE Port Speed prompt, select a GE port speed that matches that
of the Ethernet switch port to which it is connected. QLogic recommends
that you use a gigabit managed switch that is capable of automatically
negotiating the port speed. If the Ethernet switch port speed is not capable
of auto negotiation, set both the router and Ethernet switch to the same port
speed.
15.
At the Bandwidth, Mbit/sec prompt, enter a value from 1 through
1000 for the route bandwidth. To determine this value, see “Bandwidth
Limiting” on page 5-15.
16.
At the VLAN prompt, enable or disable VLAN support as needed. Enable
VLAN only if it is supported by the Ethernet switch.
17.
At the FCIP SW Compression prompt, enable or disable data
compression (see “Data Compression” on page 5-15 to determine if
compression should be enabled).
E_Port Extension
The FCIP configuration used to interconnect (merge) two SANs separated by
distance is referred to as an E_Port extension. The SANs to be interconnected
(merged) must be made up of similar Fibre Channel switches, from the same
manufacturer, and support ISLs using the E_Port protocol.

RTT is the time required for a packet to travel from the sender to the receiver, and
then return to the sender. The router’s ping feature, either CLI or GUI, can help
determine the RTT. The following is an example of the CLI ping command
executed on GE port 1.

Link Data Rate
The available link data rate is not typically the same as the connection speed at
the router’s GE port. The GE port is typically connected to a local IP switch with
ports running at 1 gigabit. The provider of the long-distance connection (WAN)
provides the link data rate. Table 5-2 lists some examples of data rates for
commonly used WANs.

OC-1
50Mbps
OC-3
150Mbps
DS-5
400Mbps
OC-12
621Mbps
OC-24
1.5Gbps
In some configurations, the data rate (bandwidth) supported by the WAN may not
be dedicated to a single application such as FCIP. The ability to set the router's
FCIP bandwidth usage provides for such configurations (see “Bandwidth Limiting”
on page 5-15).
Link Quality
The link (WAN) quality can be difficult to determine; however, monitoring the
router's statistics should provide an indication of the overall link quality. Typically,
low link level errors are not seen at the router because they generally occur in the
WAN.
The following TCP statistics are a useful indicator of WAN congestion or packet
errors:

ISR651101-00 H
TCP Received Duplicate ACKs—Receiving a duplicate ACK indicates that
the receiver did not receive the packet following the ACK’d packet (packet
whose sequence number follows the ACK'd packet). This is typically the
result of the following:

Congestion: An IP switch or router somewhere in the WAN has
dropped the packet due to its inability to transmit or buffer the packet.

Error: The packet was dropped somewhere in the WAN as a result of
the detection of a data error (corruption).
5-11
5–Fibre Channel over IP
Configuring FCIP

TCP Retransmit Timer Expired—The sender of a packet did not receive an
ACK for a packet within the retransmit time-out window. The sender will
retransmit the packet. This is typically the result of the ACK being dropped
somewhere in the WAN due to congestion or corruption of the ACK (less
likely).
The following example shows the FCIP link statistics from the router’s CLI show
statistics command. The TCP Timer Expired value consists of two
counters:

The upper 16 bits is a count of the number of retransmits resulting from
receiving duplicate ACKs (count = 34 in the example).

The lower 16 bits is a count of the number of retransmits resulting from
retransmit time outs (count = 10 in the example).

Firewall
When configuring an FCIP route in a WAN containing a firewall, the TCP and
server ports used by the FCIP route must be unblocked. Table 5-3 lists the
well-known ports and server ports that require unblocking in the firewall.

5–Fibre Channel over IP
Configuring FCIP
Data Compression
Data compression is an option that in some configurations can provide a data
throughput rate greater than the capability of the IP link. The iSR6200 is capable
of compressing data at rates up to 190Mbps. The iSR6200 can automatically
enable or disable compression to achieve maximum throughput on a real-time
basis, depending on the compressibility of the data and the configured bandwidth
for the FCIP route. QLogic recommends that you always enable data compression
and monitor the resulting performance to determine improvement. The FCIP route
bandwidth must be correctly configured to realize the affects of automatic
compression.
Bandwidth Limiting
The router provides the ability to set the maximum bandwidth used by an FCIP
route. This setting is very important because most WANs do not support the
1-gigabit data rate of the router’s GE ports. Bandwidth limiting is also needed for
those configurations where the FCIP route is only allocated a portion of the total
bandwidth.
NOTE
The bandwidth parameter should never be set higher than the total WAN
bandwidth; otherwise, performance suffers due to WAN congestion
(dropped packets).
When a configuration requires that the bandwidth available to the FCIP route be a
percentage of the total WAN bandwidth, it is important to correctly calculate the
bandwidth and set it accordingly. For instance if the FCIP route is being allocated
50 percent of an OC-3 link (150Mbps link), the route bandwidth setting should be
as follows:
Bandwidth Allocated = 50% × Link Rate
75Mbps = 0.5 × 150Mbps
For more information, see “Configuring an FCIP Route Using the CLI” on
page 5-3.
TCP Window Settings
The TCP window size defines the amount of data sent before seeing an
acknowledgement. It is used to avoid overwhelming the receiver and still maintain
a constant flow of data. The TCP window size is typically calculated based on the
RTT and WAN speed.
The following tables show the suggested TCP window size settings for IP links
based on link speed and RTT.

Power-On Self-Test Diagnostics
Input Power LED is Off
The input power LED lights up to show that the router logic circuitry is receiving
proper voltages. If the input power LED is off, follow these steps:



Inspect power cord and connectors. Is the cord unplugged? Is the cord or
connector damaged?

Yes—Make necessary corrections or repairs. If the condition remains,
continue.

No—Continue.
Inspect AC power source. Is the power source delivering the proper voltage?

Yes—Continue.

No—Make the necessary repairs. If the condition remains, continue.
Replace the router.
System Fault LED is On
The system fault LED blinks a specific pattern to indicate the problem. If the
system fault LED lights up, take necessary actions (see “LED Blink Patterns” on
page 6-2).
Power-On Self-Test Diagnostics
The router performs a series of tests as part of its power-on procedure. The POST
diagnostic program performs the following tests:




Memory
FLASH validation
PCI device discovery
Management Ethernet port
LED Blink Patterns
The heartbeat and system fault LEDs show the operational status of the router.
When the POST completes with no errors, these LEDs blink at a steady rate of
once per second. When the router is in maintenance mode, the heartbeat and
system fault LEDs are on continuously.

ISR651101-00 H
6–Diagnostics and Troubleshooting
LED Blink Patterns
All other system fault blink patterns show critical errors. The heartbeat LED shows
an error blink pattern for the conditions listed in Table 6-1.

3 Blinks, followed by pause
System error
4 Blinks, followed by pause

5 Blinks, followed by pause
Over-temperature
Heartbeat Blink Pattern
A blink pattern on the heartbeat LED of one second ON followed by one second
OFF means that the router is operating normally. The heartbeat LED shows this
pattern when the router firmware is operational.
System Error Blink Pattern
The system fault LED generates a three-blink pattern (once per second) followed
by a two-second pause to indicate a system error.
Management Port IP Address Conflict Blink Pattern
The system fault LED generates a four-blink pattern (once per second) followed
by a two-second pause when the router detects an IP address conflict on the
management Ethernet port.
You can clear the IP address conflict blinking using the CLI or SANsurfer Router
Manager. Use the beacon OFF function.
ISR651101-00 H
6-3
6–Diagnostics and Troubleshooting
Recovering a Router
Over-Temperature Blink Pattern
The system fault LED generates a five-blink pattern (once per second) followed by
a two-second pause when the router is in an over-temperature condition. That is,
the air temperature inside the router is over the failure temperature of 70°C
(158°F).
If the system fault LED shows the over-temperature blink pattern, follow these
steps:


Inspect the chassis air vents. Are the intake and exhaust vents clear?

Yes—Continue.

No—Remove any debris from the fan intake and exhaust if necessary.
If the condition remains, continue.
Consider the ambient air temperature near the router and clearance around
the router. Make necessary corrections. If the condition remains, open a
command line window and log on to the router. Enter the shutdown
command, and then power down the router. Contact your authorized
maintenance provider.
Recovering a Router
You may have to recover a router for one of the following reasons:

The password was changed and has been forgotten.

The router’s management IP address is unknown.
To recover the router’s password, reset the password to the default by using the
maintenance button (see page 1-10).
You can recover the router’s IP address using either of the following methods:
6-4

Connect to the serial console port (see page 1-15), and then use the CLI
set mgmt command to reconfigure the management port (see the
iSR6200 Command Line Interface (CLI) User’s Guide).

Use the maintenance button to reset the management port’s IP to the factory
default of 10.0.0.1 (see page 1-10).

Removal and Replacement
This chapter describes how to remove and replace the following FRUs:

SFP Transceivers

iSR6200 Chassis Blades

“Power and Cooling Modules” on page 7-10
SFP Transceivers
You can remove and replace the SFP transceivers while the iSR6200 router is
operating without damaging the router or the transceiver. However, this interrupts
transmission on the affected port until you install the transceiver.

To remove a transceiver, gently press the transceiver into the port to release
the tension, pull the release tab or lever, and then remove the transceiver.
Different transceiver manufacturers have different release mechanisms.
Consult the documentation for your transceiver.

To install a transceiver, insert it into the port and gently press until it snaps
into place.
NOTE
The SFP transceiver fits only one way. If the SFP does not install under
gentle pressure, flip it over and try again.
iSR6200 Chassis Blades
The iSR6200 router provides an enhanced feature you can use to replace any
blade in the field. In a dual-blade chassis, the iSR6200 automatically restores a
replacement blade’s configuration. When replacing a blade in a single-blade
chassis, you can use the iSR6200 router’s management tools to save and restore
a blade’s configuration.
ISR651101-00 H
7-1
7–Removal and Replacement
iSR6200 Chassis Blades
The blade replacement feature ensures that the replaced unit retains the MAC
addresses for the management ports and iSCSI ports, as well as the world wide
port number (WWPN) and world wide node number (WWNN) for the Fibre
Channel ports. Retaining these values ensures that the Fibre Channel zoning,
LUN masking, and iSCSI login sessions previously established are still valid after
replacing the blade. This feature retains the management IP address
configuration across blade replacements.
Dual-Blade Installation
If the iSR6200 router chassis contains dual blades prior to replacing a specific
blade, you do not need to use the management tool’s Save and Restore FRU
features because the blade already mirrors the configuration of its peer blade.
When you replace a blade, it automatically restores all the configuration data from
the other blade.
The following sections show how to remove and replace a failed blade in a
dual-blade chassis installation:

“Removing the Failed Blade” on page 7-2

“Installing the Replacement Blade” on page 7-3
Removing the Failed Blade
To remove a failed blade from an iSR6200 chassis with a dual blade:
1.
Prior to replacing the iSR6200 router blade, log out all iSCSI initiators from
the iSR6200 blade you are replacing.
2.
Disconnect all cables from the iSR6200 blade you are replacing, including
Fibre Channel, iSCSI, management, Ethernet, and serial cables (see
Figure 7-1).

Single-Blade Installation
For a single-blade configuration, you must save the configuration of the original
blade using the fru save command whenever the blade configuration changes.
You can save the configuration of the blade on a server you can later access to
use for the replacement blade. After physically replacing the blade, you can then
use the fru restore command to restore the saved configuration to the
replacement blade. This enables the replacement blade to retain all user-configured
settings.

Power and Cooling Modules
Each iSR6200 chassis blade has a PCM, located on the back side of the chassis.
Each PCM consists of one power supply, three fans, and one external status LED.
The PCM’s external status LED shows its status:

Green = GOOD status, indicating that the PCM is running as expected.

Amber = FAULT status, indicating that the PCM has failed.
You can remove and replace a failed PCM as described in the following sections:

Removing the Failed PCM
To remove a failed PCM from the iSR6200 chassis:
1.
Locate the failed PCM unit on the back side of the iSR6200 chassis. A failed
PCM unit shows an amber colored status LED.
Figure 7-9 shows the back side of two PCMs installed in a chassis
configured with two iSR6200 chassis blades. The PCM on the left side
shows its fault indicator in amber, which indicates a FAULT status. The PCM
on the right side shows its fault indicator in green, which indicates a GOOD
status.
Figure 7-9. Back Side of Two PCMs with Fault (left) and Good (right) Status
Indicators
2.
Check the second (GOOD) PCM to make sure it is ready to support storage
connectivity while you are replacing the failed PCM unit. Make sure the
second PCM’s power cable is connected to the cable with the other end
plugged into a live power source, and that it shows a green status LED.
CAUTION
Failure to verify the functionality of the second PCM can result in lost
host storage connectivity.
3.
Remove the power cable from the failed PCM unit. The LED remains amber
even after the removing the power cable.
4.
Release the chassis latch on the left side of the unplugged PCM. As shown
in Figure 7-10, pull down on the lever to unseat the PCM (1), and then
remove the PCM by pulling straight back on the handle (2).

Description
Read community
A password that authorizes an SNMP management server to read information
from the router. This is a write-only field. The value on the router and the SNMP
management server must be the same. The read community password can be
up to 32 characters, excluding the number sign (#), semicolon (;), and comma
(,). The default is password is private.
Trap community
A password that authorizes an SNMP management server to receive traps. This
is a write-only field. The value on the router and the SNMP management server
must be the same. The trap community password can be up to 32 characters,
excluding the number sign (#), semicolon (;), and comma (,). The default password is private.
System location
Specifies the name of the router location. The name can be up to 64 characters,
excluding the number sign (#), semicolon (;), and comma (,). The default is
undefined.
System contact
Specifies the name of the person to be contacted to respond to trap events. The
name can be up to 64 characters, excluding the number sign (#), semicolon (;),
and comma (,). The default is undefined.
Authentication

configuring an SNMP trap.
Table B-2. SNMP Trap Configuration Parameters
Parameter
Description
Trap n enabled
Enables or disables trap n. If disabled, the trap is not configured.
Trap address*
Specifies the IP address to which the SNMP traps are sent. A maximum of eight
trap addresses are supported. The default address for traps is 0.0.0.0.
Trap port*
Port number on which the trap is sent. The default is 162. If the trap destination
is not enabled, this value is 0 (zero). Most SNMP managers and management
software listen on this port for SNMP traps.
Trap version
Specifies the SNMP version (1 or 2) with which to format traps.
Table Note
* Trap address (other than 0.0.0.0.) and trap port combinations must be unique. For example, if trap 1 and trap
2 have the same address, they must have different port values. Similarly, if trap 1 and trap 2 have the same port
value, they must have different addresses.

Log Messages
This appendix provides details about messages logged to a file. (For details about viewing the router logs, see the
iSR6200 Command Line Interface (CLI) User’s Guide or the iSR6200 Router Manager User’s Guide.) The message log
is persistent because it is maintained across router power cycles and reboots.
Information in Table C-1 is organized as follows:

The ID column specifies the message identification numbers in ascending order.

The Log Message column indicates the message text shown in the CLI or SANsurfer Router Manager router log.
Note that:


Log messages for the iSCSI driver module are common to both iSCSI ports. Log messages beginning with
#0 denote iSCSI port 1 (GE1) and log messages beginning with #1 denote iSCSI port 2 (GE2).

Log messages for the Fibre Channel driver module are common to both Fibre Channel ports. Log messages
beginning with #0 denote Fibre Channel port 1 (FC1) and log messages beginning with #1 denote Fibre
Channel port 2 (FC2).
The Module Type column specifies the message reporting module, where:


LUN
Logical unit number, a subdivision of a
SCSI target. It is the small integer handle
that differentiates an individual disk drive
or partition (volume) within a common
SCSI target device such as a disk array.
Technically, a LUN can be a single
physical disk drive, multiple physical disk
drives, or a portion (volume) of a single
physical disk drive. However, LUNs are
typically not entire disk drives but rather
virtual partitions (volumes) of a RAID set.
Using LUNs, the Fibre Channel host can
address multiple peripheral devices that
may share a common controller.

a fabric, for example N_Port to F_Port to
F_Port to N_Port using a single Fibre
Channel fabric switch. See also Fibre
Channel.
network time protocol
See NTP.
NIC
Network interface card. Computer card
installed to enable a dedicated network
connection.
NL_Port
Node loop port. A port capable of
arbitrated loop functions and protocols. An
NL_Port connects through an arbitrated
loop to other NL_Port and at most a single
FL_Port. NL_Ports handle creation, detection, and flow of message units to and
from the connected systems. NL_Ports are
end ports in virtual point-to-point links
through a fabric, for example NL_Port to
F_Port to F_Port to N_Port using a single
Fibre Channel fabric switch. In the
absence of a fabric switch FL_Port,
NL_Ports can communicate with other
NL_Ports in virtual point-to-point links
through an FC_AL open loop circuit often
through FC_AL (Arbitrated Loop) hub or
loop switch devices. See: E_Port, F_Port,
FL_Port, G_Port, N_Port.

NTP
Network time protocol. NTP is used for
distributing the Coordinated Universal
Time (UTC) by means of synchronizing the
clocks of computer systems over
packet-switched, variable-latency data
networks.
NVRAM
Non-volatile random access memory.
NVRAM is a type of memory that retains
data (including configuration settings)
even when power is removed. You can
configure NVRAM settings manually or

OC
Optical carrier is a standardized set of
specifications of transmission speeds that
describe a range of digital signals that can
be carried on synchronous optical
networking (SONET) fiber optic networks.
The number attached to the optical carrier
abbreviation, OC-12, is directly proportional to the data rate of the bitstream of
the digital signal.
path
A path to a device is a combination of a
adapter port instance and a target port as
distinct from internal paths in the fabric
network. A fabric network appears to the
operating system as an opaque network
between the adapter (initiator) and the
target.
Because a path is a combination of an
adapter and a target port, it is distinct from
another path if it is accessed through a
different adapter and/or it is accessing a
different target port. Consequently, when
switching from one path to another, the
driver might be selecting a different
adapter (initiator), a different target port, or
both.
ISR651101-00 H
This is important to the driver when
selecting the proper method of failover
notification. It can make a difference to the
target device, which might have to take
different actions when receiving retries of
the request from another initiator or on a
different port.
PCI
Peripheral component interface/interconnect. A 32-bit local bus specification introduced by Intel.
PCM
Power and cooling module. A device that
consists of one power supply and three
fans.
PID
Process identifier. A number used by some
operating system kernels (such as that of
UNIX, Mac OS X or Windows NT) to
uniquely identify a process.
ping
A computer network administration utility
used to test whether a specified host is
reachable across an IP network and to
measure the round-trip time for packets
sent from the local host to a destination
computer.
point-to-point
Also FC-P2P. Two Fibre Channel nodes
directly connected (not in a loop).
port
Access points in a device where a link
attaches. There are four types of ports, as
follows:
 N_Port—a Fibre Channel port that
supports point-to-point topology.
 NL_Port—a Fibre Channel port that
supports loop topology.
Glossary-7
iSR6200 QLogic intelligent Storage Router (iSR)
Installation Guide
 Fibre Channel—a port in a fabric
where an N_Port can attach.
 Fibre Channel—a port in a fabric
where an NL_Port can attach.
port instance
The number of the port in the system.
Each adapter may have one or multiple
ports, identified with regard to the adapter
as port 0, port 1 and so forth. To avoid
confusion when dealing with a system
containing numerous ports, each port is
assigned a port instance number when the
system boots up. So Port 0 on an adapter
might have a port instance number of 8,
for example, if it is the eighth port discovered by the system.
POST
Power-on self test. Diagnostics that the
router performs at start-up.
reduced instruction set computer

target
The storage-device endpoint of a SCSI
session. Initiators request data from
targets. Targets are typically disk-drives,
tape-drives, or other media devices.
Typically a SCSI peripheral device is the
target but an adapter may, in some cases,
be a target. A target can contain many
LUNs.
A target is a device that responds to a
requested by an initiator (the host system).
Peripherals are targets, but for some
commands (for example, a SCSI COPY
command), the peripheral may act as an
initiator.
Telnet
Telecommunication network. A network
protocol used on the Internet or local area
network (LAN) connections. Telnet
provides access to a command line interface (CLI) on a remote machine.
virtual logical area network (LAN)
See VLAN.
virtual port group
See VPGs.
VLAN
Virtual logical area network (LAN). A group
of hosts with a common set of requirements that communicate as if they were
attached to the same wire, regardless of
their physical location. Although a VLAN
has the same attributes as a physical LAN,
it allows for end stations to be grouped
together even if they are not located on the
same LAN segment. VLANs enable
network reconfiguration through software,
instead of physically relocating devices.
