Mounting the Chassis in a Four-Post Rack
Rack Mounting Safety Considerations
WARNING: You must use a lifting device, such as a fork-lift trolley, to lift the chassis.
WARNING: These instructions are a condensed reference. Read the safety instructions in your
Safety, Environmental, and Regulatory information booklet before you begin.
•
Rack loading — Overloading or uneven loading of racks may result in shelf or rack failure, which may
damage equipment and cause possible personal injury. Stabilize racks in a permanent location before
loading begins. Mount the components beginning at the bottom of the rack, then work to the top. Do
not exceed your rack load rating.
•
Power considerations — Connect only to the power source specified on the unit. When multiple
electrical components are installed in a rack, ensure that the total component power ratings do not
exceed the circuit capabilities. Overloaded power sources and extension cords present fire and shock
hazards.
10
Getting Started Guide
•
Elevated ambient temperature — If installed in a closed rack assembly, the operating temperature of
the rack environment may be greater than the room ambient temperature. Use care not to exceed the
40°C maximum ambient temperature of the switch.
•
Reduced air flow — Install the equipment in the rack so that the amount of airflow required for safe
operation of the equipment is not compromised.
•
Reverse air flow — Necessary clearance is required to ensure cool air intake and to avoid hot air blow
out from I/O panel.
•
Reliable earthing — Maintain reliable earthing of rack-mounted equipment. Pay particular attention to
the supply connections other than the direct connections to the branch circuit; for example, use of
power strips.
•
Do not mount the equipment with the Utility panel facing in the downward position.
NOTE: The illustrations in this document are not intended to represent a specific switch.

Securing the Chassis Ground
After you mount the chassis, secure the chassis ground as follows:
1.
Locate the chassis ground connector nuts on the chassis rear.
2.
Install the grounding cables to the ground nuts. The grounding cable must comply with your local
electrical codes in size and color (typically the color is green or green with yellow stripe).
NOTE: For proper ventilation, position the chassis in an equipment rack (or cabinet) with a
minimum of 5 inches (12.7 cm) of clearance around exhaust vents. The acceptable ambient
temperature ranges are listed in the Environmental Parameters section.
Use M5 screws.
3.
Tighten the screws (torque should be between 18 and 24 inch/lbs).
4.
Connect the opposite end of the grounding cable to the nearest appropriate facility grounding post.
Figure 3. Cable Connector
Installing Fan Modules
The chassis requires five fan modules to be installed for normal configuration. The airflow direction must
be from I/O to Utility.
Important Points to Remember for Installing a Fan Module
14
Getting Started Guide
•
The Utility panel consists of five slots numbered from 0 to 4. Insert the fan modules in slots 0, 1, 2, 3,
and 4.
•
If a fan module fails, the system during normal operation continues to operate without a significant
degradation in cooling capacity for a TBD duration.
•
The cooling system is designed such that, during normal operation, the fans typically run at
somewhere between 40 and 50 percent of their maximum speed at 26°C ambient temperature. This
feature results in lower noise and higher average fan life. The switch increases the fan speed to
maximum if the facility air condition fails or if a fan fails.
•
The fan speed increases and decreases automatically based on the internal temperature. The switch
never intentionally turns off the fans.
•
For proper ventilation, position the switch in an equipment rack (or cabinet) with a minimum of 5
inches (12.7 cm) of clearance around the exhaust vents. When you install two systems near each
other, position the two chassis at least 5 inches (12.7 cm) apart to permit proper airflow. The
acceptable ambient temperature ranges are listed in Technical Specifications.

The Dell prompt changes to indicate the CLI mode. You must move linearly through the command
modes, except for the end command which takes you directly to EXEC Privilege mode and the exit
command which moves you up one command mode level.
Default Configuration
A version of Dell Networking OS is preloaded onto the system; however, the system is not configured
when you power up for the first time (except for the default host name, which is Dell). You must
configure the system using the CLI.
Configuring Layer 2 (Data Link) Mode
To enable Layer 2 data transmissions through an individual interface, use the switchport command in
INTERFACE mode. You cannot configure switching or Layer 2 protocols, such as spanning tree protocol
(STP), on an interface unless the interface has been set to Layer 2 mode.
1.
Enable the interface.
INTERFACE mode
no shutdown
2.
Place the interface in Layer 2 (switching) mode
INTERFACE mode
switchport
To view the interfaces in Layer 2 mode, use the show interfaces switchport command in EXEC
mode.
Port Numbering Convention
On the switch, all ports operate by default in 40GbE mode. If you use a breakout cable, each port can
operate in 4x10GbE mode.
Ports are located on three line cards as shown below. The line cards are factory-installed and are not
hot-swappable or field-replaceable. On each line card, the fixed 40GbE ports are numbered from bottom
to top in multiples of four, starting with zero; for example, 0, 4, 8, 12, and so on. When a breakout cable is
installed, the resulting four 10GbE ports are numbered with the remaining numbers. For example, 40GbE
port 0 contains 10GbE ports 0, 1, 2, and 3; 40GbE port 4 contains 10GbE ports 4, 5, 6, and 7.
Line card 0 consists of ports 0 to 143; line card 1 consists of ports 0 to 191; line card 2 consists of ports 0
to 191.

Accessing the System Remotely
You can configure the system to access it remotely by Telnet.
The system has a dedicated management port and a management routing table that is separate from the
IP routing table.
1.
Configure an IP address for the management port (refer to Configuring the Management Port IP
Address).
2.
Configure a management route with a default gateway (refer to Configuring a Management Route).
3.
Configure a username and password (refer to Configuring a Username and Password).
Configuring the Management Port IP Address
To access the system remotely, assign IP addresses to the management ports.
NOTE: Assign different IP addresses to each stack-unit’s management port.
1.
Enter INTERFACE mode for the Management port.
CONFIGURATION mode
interface ManagementEthernet slot/port
– slot range: 0
– port range: 0
2.
Assign an IP address to the interface.
INTERFACE mode
ip address ip-address/mask
– ip-address: an address in dotted-decimal format (A.B.C.D).
– mask: a subnet mask in /prefix-length format (/ xx).
3.
Enable the interface.
INTERFACE mode
no shutdown

Configuring a Management Route
Define a path from the system to the network from which you are accessing the system remotely.
Management routes are separate from IP routes and are only used to manage the system through the
management port.
•
Configure a management route to the network from which you are accessing the system.
CONFIGURATION mode
management route ip-address/mask gateway
– ip-address: the network address in dotted-decimal format (A.B.C.D).
– mask: a subnet mask in /prefix-length format (/ xx).
– gateway: the next hop for network traffic originating from the management port.
Configuring a Username and Password
•
Configure a username and password to access the system remotely.
CONFIGURATION mode
username username password [encryption-type]
encryption-type specifies how you are inputting the password, is 0 by default, and is not required.
– 0 is for inputting the password in clear text.
– 7 is for inputting a password that is already encrypted using a Type 7 hash. Obtaining the
encrypted password from the configuration of another Dell Networking system.
Splitting QSFP+ Ports to SFP+ Ports
The system supports splitting a single 40GbE QSFP+ port into four 10GbE SFP+ ports using one of the
supported breakout cables.
For a list of supported optics, contact your Dell Networking representative or reseller.
•
Configure the system to recognize the port mode change.
CONFIGURATION mode
linecard number port number portmode quad
– port <number>- Enter the port number of the 40GbE port to be split. The range is 48 to 60.
– portmode quad - Configure a 40GbE port to operate in 4 x 10GbE mode.
Example of splitting a QSFP+ port to SFP+ ports
linecard 0 port 52 portmode quad
Important Points to Remember
•
A 40GbE (quad) port must be in a default configuration before you can split it into four 10GbE SFP+
ports. When you split the port, the 40GbE port is lost in the running configuration. Be sure that the
port is also removed from other L2/L3 feature configurations.
•
For the split-port change to take effect, you must reload the system after issuing the CLI change
commands.

Getting Started Guide
Creating a Port-based VLAN
The default virtual local area network (VLAN) (VLAN 1) is part of the system startup configuration and does
not require configuration.
To configure a port-based VLAN, create the VLAN and then add physical interfaces or port channel (LAG)
interfaces to the VLAN.
•
Configure a port-based VLAN (if the VLAN-ID is different from the Default VLAN ID) and enter
INTERFACE VLAN mode.
CONFIGURATION mode
interface vlan vlan-id
After you create a VLAN, you must assign interfaces in Layer 2 mode to the VLAN to activate the
VLAN.
To view the configured VLANs, use the show vlan command in EXEC Privilege mode.
Assigning Interfaces to a VLAN
You can only assign interfaces in Layer 2 mode to a VLAN using the tagged and untagged commands.
To place an interface in Layer 2 mode, use the switchport command.
You can designate Layer 2 interfaces as tagged or untagged. When you place an interface in Layer 2
mode using the switchport command, the interface is automatically designated untagged and placed
in the Default VLAN.
To view which interfaces are tagged or untagged and to view which VLAN the interfaces belong, use the
show vlan command.
To view just the interfaces that are in Layer 2 mode, use the show interfaces switchport command
in EXEC Privilege mode or EXEC mode.
To tag frames leaving an interface in Layer 2 mode, you must assign that interface to a port-based VLAN
to tag it with that VLAN ID.
1.
Access the INTERFACE VLAN mode of the VLAN to which you want to assign the interface.
CONFIGURATION mode
interface vlan vlan-id
2.
Enable an interface to include the IEEE 802.1Q tag header.
INTERFACE mode
tagged interface
To move untagged interfaces from the Default VLAN to another VLAN, use the untagged command.
3.
Access the INTERFACE VLAN mode of the VLAN to which you want to assign the interface.
CONFIGURATION mode
interface vlan vlan-id
4.
Configure an interface as untagged. This command is available only in VLAN interfaces.
INTERFACE mode
untagged interface

Assigning an IP Address to a VLAN
VLANs are a Layer 2 feature. For two physical interfaces on different VLANs to communicate, you must
assign an IP address to the VLANs to route traffic between the two interfaces. The shutdown command
in INTERFACE mode does not affect Layer 2 traffic on the interface.
NOTE: You cannot assign an IP address to the Default VLAN, which, by default, is VLAN 1. To assign
another VLAN ID to the Default VLAN, use the default vlan-id vlan-id command.
•
Configure an IP address and mask on the interface.
INTERFACE mode
ip address ip-address mask [secondary]
Connecting the System to the Network
After you have completed the hardware installation and software configuration for the system, you can
connect to your company network by following your company’s cabling requirements.
