Fibre Channel Switch Installation Manual
29 January 2007
Welcome
You can use your 8, 16, or 20 port QLogic 5202 SANbox Fibre Channel switch to
create SCSI protocol fabrics for Grass Valley products. The QLogic 5202 SANbox
Fibre Channel switch does not support Internet Protocol (IP) fabrics.
The 8 and 16 port switches have 2Gb/1Gb auto-detecting ports. The 20 port switch
includes four 10 Gb ports, which are for Inter-Switch Links (ISLs).
This manual supplements the information provided by the QLogic 5202 SANbox
Switch manuals that you received with your switch. Please refer to the following
QLogic manuals when installing and configuring your QLogic 5202 SANbox Switch.
• SANbox 5200 Series Fibre Channel Switch Installation Guide - This is your
primary reference on the installation and initial setup of your specific model of
QLogic switch. It also provides maintenance and repair information.
• SANbox 5200 Series Switch Management User’s Guide - This manual describes the
switch management software application that allows you to monitor and administer
your QLogic 5202 SANbox Switch.
You can find these manuals on the CD that you receive with the Fibre Channel switch.
Support for your Fibre Channel switch
Your QLogic 5202 SANbox Switch is sold, supported, and serviced by Grass Valley.
If you have any questions about your QLogic 5202 SANbox Switch, or if you need
any help or service for the switch, please contact your local Grass Valley Support
representative listed at the front of this manual
NOTE: Do not contact QLogic directly for support of your QLogic 5202 SANbox
Switch.
Profile System Software Requirements
Profile System Software version 5.2 or higher is required for operation with a QLogic
5202 SANbox Switch. Earlier versions do not support this Fibre Channel switch.
Refer to the Profile Release Notes for instructions on how to install your Profile
System Software, as well as information on the new features that are included in the
release.
Configuring your Fibre Channel switch
Your QLogic 5202 SANbox Switch must be configured so that you can control and
monitor it in your LAN environment. As you make these settings, you should also
verify that all the other switch and port settings are appropriate for operation in a
Grass Valley SCSI protocol Fibre Channel fabric. The following instructions describe
how to verify and assign these settings using a serial port connection. The same
commands can also be used in a Telnet session over the Ethernet port.
NOTE: You can use the SANsurfer Management software application described in
the SANbox 5200 Series Switch Management User’s Guide to establish Ethernet LAN,
SNMP, and basic switch and port settings.

16. Confirm activation of the configuration when prompted.
You must make various SNMP settings so that you can monitor your switch with
NetCentral. Refer to “Monitoring your switch with NetCentral” on page 14. The
NetCentral Help menu has device provider documentation specific to the QLogic
5202 SANbox Switch. This documentation provides SNMP configuration
information.
If you are installing your QLogic 5202 SANbox Switch in a Grass Valley Open SAN,
refer to the Open SAN Instruction Manual.
Combining with the QLogic SANbox2 switch
If you have the previous version of the Grass Valley Fibre Channel Switch, the
QLogic SanBox2, you can combine it with the QLogic 5202 SANbox Switch to
expand your SCSI protocol Fibre Channel fabric. To do this, the QLogic SanBox2
Fibre Channel switch must be upgraded to firmware version 5 or higher. Refer to the
SANbox2 Fibre Channel Switch Installer’s/User’s Manual for firmware installation
instructions.
Connecting devices to the switch
Follow the instructions in the SANbox 5200 Series Fibre Channel Switch Installation
Guide to connect your devices to the Fibre Channel switch. You should also take note
of the following guidelines when setting up your fabric environment:
Cable lengths
Use the appropriate cable types and Small Form-factor Pluggable Transceivers
(SFPs) for the length of your Fibre Channel connections. In general, distances under
5 meters can be connected with copper cables. Distances from 5 to 500 meters require
the use of fiber-optic cable.
Fabric topology
Your choices in switch interconnections can greatly affect the cost, redundancy, and
throughput of your Fibre Channel fabric. Refer to the SANbox 5200 Series Fibre
Channel Switch Installation Guide for detailed information on fabric topology.
NOTE: You must not connect a Fibre Channel Arbitrated Loop to a Fibre Channel
Switch port. Grass Valley does not support loops in a fabric environment.
Compatible Fibre Channel Devices
The QLogic 5202 SANbox Switch has been qualified for operation with the following
devices:
• Profile XP Media Platform (Open SAN)
• PFC500 RAID storage
29 January 2007
Fibre Channel Switch Installation Manual

Welcome
• PFR500/600/700 RAID storage
• NewsEdit Digital News Production system
The QLogic 5202 SANbox Switch has not been qualified for operation with the
following devices. Do not connect them to a QLogic 5202 SANbox Switch.
• Profile PDR Video Server (IP Video Network)
• Brocade Fibre Channel Switch
• Profile PDR100 Professional Disk Recorder
Monitoring your switch with NetCentral
You can use NetCentral, a Grass Valley SNMP Manager, to monitor the state of your
Fibre Channel switch. The information presented in NetCentral allows you to verify
the normal operation of your switch. NetCentral can also alert you immediately when
problems occur.
Before you can monitor a QLogic 5202 SANbox Switch, you must prepare the
NetCentral system. Refer to the NetCentral User Guide and the NetCentral Release
Notes to do the following:
• Set up the NetCentral system.
• Install the SANbox Fibre Channel Switch device provider on the NetCentral server
PC. The device provider is a NetCentral component that acts as a plug-in to the
NetCentral manager software. The device provider enables the QLogic 5202
SANbox Switch to be monitored by NetCentral.
Once you have the device provider installed on the NetCentral system, refer to the
NetCentral Help menu for device provider documentation specific to the QLogic 5202
SANbox Switch. This documentation guides you through the remaining set up and
configuration tasks and provides instructions for using NetCentral to monitor the
QLogic 5202 SANbox Switch.
Maintenance procedures
You may wish to use the following procedures to recover from faulty configurations
or other problems. Since these procedures stop all traffic on all Fibre Channel ports,
be sure to take the switch out of service before performing any of these tasks.
Resetting the switch to factory defaults
Resetting factory defaults returns your QLogic 5202 SANbox Switch to its original
configuration, although it does not reset the password. After resetting factory defaults,
you must restore all the Grass Valley settings and site-specific network settings
described earlier in this manual.
To reset the QLogic 5202 SANbox Switch to factory defaults:
1. Use Telnet over the Ethernet LAN or a serial communication application such as
Hyperterminal through an RS-232 connection to enter access the Command Line
Interface.
To log on to a switch through the serial port, configure the workstation port with
14
Fibre Channel Switch Installation Manual

Resetting the switch manually
the following settings:
• 9600 baud
• 8-bit character
• 1 stop bit
• No parity
Refer to the SANbox 5200 Series Fibre Channel Switch Installation Guide for
connection information.
2. Log in to the switch with username admin and password password, all in lowercase
characters.
3. Type the following command to enter the administrator mode, which allows you to
modify settings:
SANbox #> admin start
4. Type the following command to restore the factory defaults:
SANbox #> reset factory
5. Reconfigure the switch for your environment by following all the procedures
described in “Configuring your Fibre Channel switch” on page 7.
Resetting the switch manually
In some situations, you may be unable to use the reset factory command to restore
factory defaults. For example, if you don’t remember the admin password, you cannot
enter administrator mode to use the reset factory command. You can recover the
switch using maintenance mode, which temporarily returns the switch IP address to
10.0.0.1.
To recover a switch, do the following:
1. Place the switch in maintenance mode. Press and hold the Maintenance button with
a pointed tool for 2–7 seconds. When the Heartbeat LED alone is illuminated,
release the button.
2. Allow one minute for the switch to complete its tests. When the switch is in
maintenance mode, the Heartbeat LED illuminates continuously. All other chassis
LEDs are extinguished.
3. Establish a Telnet session with the switch using the maintenance mode IP address
10.0.0.1.
4. Enter the maintenance mode account name and password (prom, prom), and press
the Enter key.
Switch login: prom
Password:xxxx
5. The maintenance menu displays several recovery options. To select a switch
recovery option, press the corresponding number (displayed in option: field) on the
keyboard and press the Enter key.
