Installing the Module
To install a FEN Switching Module:
1 Before you start the installation process, read and follow the instructions
in “Safety Precautions,” “Handling Precautions,” and “Installation
Prerequisites” earlier in this guide.
2 Select a chassis slot for your module, following the restrictions and
recommendations in “Module Placement in the Chassis” earlier in this
guide.
3 To expose a slot for the module, remove the blank faceplate.
Save this faceplate in case you need it in the future. Empty slots must be

7 To engage the module with the backplane, use both hands to perform
the following steps:
a Push firmly at the two ends of the front panel near the ejector handles
until you feel the module connectors make firm contact with the
backplane connectors.
b Put your left thumb on the left or top ejector handle and your right
thumb on the right or bottom ejector handle. Simultaneously, push
the ejector handles in towards the front panel until each handle is
parallel with the front panel.
You feel a slight resistance as the connectors fully engage.
CAUTION: If there is too much resistance when you try to close the
ejector handles, the module backplane connector may not be aligned.
Forcing the module into place can damage the module connectors and
backplane connectors. If necessary, remove and reinsert the module,
ensuring that the connectors are properly aligned. Do not tighten the
spring-loaded screws to seat the module.
8 To secure the module in the chassis, tighten the spring-loaded screws to a
torque specification of 3 to 5 inch-pounds.
CAUTION: Verify that the module screws are properly aligned with the
threaded holes in the chassis. If the screws are not aligned when you
tighten them, you may strip the threads and make it impossible to secure
the module.
To ensure that you tighten screws to torque specification, use a torque
screwdriver.
WARNING: To ensure adequate cooling airflow and continued product
safety agency compliance, install blank faceplates over all empty slots.
If the chassis is powered on, the module initialization process begins.

9000 Enterprise Management Engine User Guide.
2 At the EME prompt, enter:
connect <slot>.1
where <slot> is the chassis slot number of the module that you want to
manage, and the number after the decimal point is a subslot number,
which is always 1.
The top level of the Administration Console menu for the module
appears.
3 Enter command strings to manage the module. For example, to display a
module baseline, enter:
module baseline display
For information about the Administration Console module commands,
see the Command Reference Guide.
Web Management
Web Management applications are an embedded part of the system.
They include WebConsole, DeviceView, and Performance monitoring
tools. Additional installable applications include online Help.
After you have set up the IP address for your system, you can access the
Web Management applications directly in your Web browser by entering
the IP address.
For information about setting up your IP address, see the Enterprise
Management Engine Quick Start Guide for the CoreBuilder 9000
Enterprise Switch. For additional information about Web Management,
