There are two port status LEDs on both sides (yellow LED on the left and green LED
on the right) of the 10/100BASE-TX Ethernet port on the Switch 4210 PWR
models. They indicate the port’s active, link, duplex, and speed status.
In addition, there is an A/L LED and a D/S LED on each Switch 4210 PWR model.
These two LEDs indicate the port status LEDs mode. When the A/L LED is on, the
port status LEDs respectively indicate the port’s active status and link status. When
the D/S LED is on, the port status LEDs respectively indicate the port’s duplex status
and speed status. Either the A/L LED or the D/S LED is on at one time. For details,
see Table 4.

Screw 2 is mounted to the switch.
In many cases, standard 19-inch racks are not available. Therefore, switches are
often placed on a desktop. To place your switch on a desktop, you simply need to:
■
Make sure that the surface is clean, flat, and sturdy.
■
Makes sure that the environment is well ventilated and allow 10 cm (3.9 in.) of
space around the chassis for heat dissipation.
■
Do not place heavy objects on your switch.
■
When stacking, the vertical distance between two switches must be at least 1.5
cm (0.59 in).
The following sections describe how to get your Switch 4210 powered-up and
ready for operation.
Powering-up the Switch
4210
Use the following sequence of steps to power-up the Switch.
1 Plug the power cord into the power socket at the rear of the Switch.
2 Plug the other end of the power cord into your power outlet.
The Switch powers-up and runs through its Power On Self Test (POST), which
takes approximately one minute.
Checking for Correct
Operation of LEDs
During the Power On Self Test, all ports on the Switch are disabled and the LEDs
light. The PWR LED will flash green during the POST.
When the POST has completed, check the PWR LED to make sure that your Switch
is operating correctly. Table 13 shows possible colors for the LED.

If there is evidence of a problem, see “Solving Problems Indicated by LEDs” on
page 52 for a list of suggested solutions.
CAUTION: The Switch has no ON/OFF switch; the only method of connecting or
disconnecting mains power is by connecting or disconnecting the power cord.
Connecting a
Redundant Power
Supply
The Switch 4210 26-port PWR has a -48V DC Redundant Power Supply socket.
WARNING: Only properly trained and qualified personnel should install the
Redundant Power Supply (RPS).
WARNING: Make sure to read these instructions in conjunction with the RPS flyer
and the safety and installation instructions supplied with your RPS.
Connecting a Redundant Power Supply
29
WARNING: When powering any Switch 4210 from an RPS, make sure that the
unit is earthed (grounded) by either connecting the power cord to the unit or by
connecting the earth terminal on the rear of the unit to a reliable electrical earth
(or by connecting both). Ensure that the earth connection is made before
connecting the DC supply from the RPS.
3Com switches that support -48V DC RPS inputs, and are PoE enabled, can only
be powered by an RPS that complies with the isolation requirements of IEEE-Std
802.3af. Non PoE enabled switches do not have this restriction.
WARNING: Do not use a standard 'positive-earthed' -48V redundant power
system suitable for use with telecommunications equipment with the 3Com
Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) network switches. In order to meet the IEEE 802.3af
(PoE) specification, the -48V output must be isolated from earth (ground) and
meet the isolation requirements in that specification.
WARNING: Any RPS must be approved as a SELV output in accordance with IEC
60950-1/UL 60950-1/EN 60950-1.
WARNING: The characteristics of the Switch 4210 DC supply input are provided in
Table 11 on page 19.
You can power the Switch 4210 using three methods:
■
AC Mains only — this does not offer any power redundancy. If the AC mains
supply or the AC power supply fails, the switch powers off.
■
AC Mains and -48V DC (primary supply) — the internal AC supply acts as
the backup in the event of a DC power failure.
■
DC only — the switch does not need an AC supply and the resiliency is
provided by the DC supply. This is useful in environments where only DC power
is available.
The RPS provides two main benefits:
Specifying the
Redundant Power
System
■
Power Redundancy — if a switch is powered from the mains supply unit, a
failure of the internal power supply causes the switch to fail. You can avoid this
by connecting both the AC and DC RPS supplies to the switch. You can also
add redundancy to the DC power by using (N+1) DC power supplies to further
increase the availability of the system.
■
Uninterruptable Power — the system allows easy connection and
maintenance of batteries to the RPS shelf to further increase the availability of
the system.
3Com’s redundant power solution allows you to use any off-the-shelf -48V DC
RPS that meets the requirements defined in Table 11 on page 19.
For an approved vendor list, more details about purchasing the 3Com
recommended RPS, and a full set of requirements go to:
http://www.3Com.com/RPS
The 3Com recommended RPS generates -48V DC power using power supply units
(or rectifiers). The outputs of the rectifier(s) are connected together so that you
can increase the total -48V power available by adding rectifiers. For example, three
30
CHAPTER 2: INSTALLING THE SWITCH
1500W rectifiers can provide up to 4500W. Hot removal or insertion of a rectifier
does not affect the -48V DC output voltage.
Table 14 shows an example of the total power available from several 1500W
rectifiers.
A minimum of two rectifiers are required for each shelf to provide N+1 rectifier
redundancy.

The unearthed -48V DC power distribution provides the mechanism to connect to
the Switch 4210. The distribution consists of several circuit breakers and
connection terminals for the positive (common) and negative -48V outputs.
Individually connect each Switch 4210 to a circuit breaker terminal.
You can also connect a battery to battery terminals prior to the DC power
distribution to provide uninterrupted power and to be protected against the loss
of AC mains power.
3Com’s RPS solution uses -48V DC power distribution. The RPS system provides
bulk -48V DC power that is separately distributed to a number of network
switches.
Each RPS consists of a shelf that can house from one to six rectifiers, a Distribution
Module, and a Management Module.
Connecting the Switch
to the Redundant Power
System
When connecting the RPS to the switch, the circuit breaker and 2-core cables need
to be matched to the switch’s power rating. Table 15 shows the recommended
circuit breaker and cable rating for the Switch 4210. The recommended cable
length should not exceed three metres (9.84 feet).
Table 15 Switch 4210 Circuit Breaker and Cable Ratings

WARNING: Make sure to follow the RPS Manufacturers recommendations when
connecting the cable to the RPS.
WARNING: Ensure that the circuit breaker in the RPS is in the open (off) position
when connecting the cable to the RPS and the cable and connector to the switch.
WARNING: Ensure that the positive terminal on the switch is connected to the
positive (common) terminal of the RPS and that the negative terminal on the
switch is connected to the negative (circuit breaker) terminal of the RPS.
Connecting a Redundant Power Supply
31
Figure 23 shows how to connect the power supply to the RPS socket in the back
of the switch. Use the cable tie supplied with your switch to support the cable in
the back of the RPS connector as shown in Figure 23.

When the RPS is connected to the switch, you can move the circuit breaker in the
RPS to the closed (on) position and the switch will be powered by the -48V DC
power.
The -48V DC power takes priority over the AC mains and powers the switch if it is
connected.
Connecting the Earthing
Cable
Use the earthing cable that accompanies your switch if the length is suitable.
Alternatively use the earthing cable specification as defined in “Earthing Lead” on
page 20.
The earthing cable is only required if the switch is powered by the RPS only.
The recommended cable length should not exceed three meters (9.84 feet).
Using Power over
Ethernet
The Switch 4210 Power over Ethernet (PoE) units can supply power to any IEEE
802.3af compliant device through any of its front panel ports over a Category 5 or
Category 5e Ethernet cable. The same cable connects the device to the network.
The Switch 4210 units can supply power through the 10/100 ports only.
Power over Ethernet is a self-configuring protocol. When you plug a PoE
compliant device into one of the ports on the switch, the switch supplies the
32
CHAPTER 2: INSTALLING THE SWITCH
power required to the device, providing that the total power budget for the switch
is not exceeded.
A PoE switch combines the functionality of a standard Ethernet switch with a
single power supply that can power multiple devices. Using a PoE switch has the
following advantages over an non-powered network.
■
Reduced Cabling — a PoE (802.3af) compliant device that has its power
supplied over its Ethernet cable does not require a separate power supply. If,
for example, you use the switch to connect a 3Com 11 Mbps Wireless LAN
Access Point 8500 to the network, then only a network cable is required to
provide both power and network connectivity.
■
Increased Reliability — a device powered by a PoE switch can take advantage
of the facilities available to the switch. You can fit the switch with a redundant
power supply or uninterruptible power supply to increase its uptime.
The switch supports resistor detection according to IEEE 802.3af and pre-standard
detection methods.
The Switch 4210 supports 3Com 802.3af equipment. For the latest list of
supported devices, refer to the product page on the 3Com web site at
http://www.3com.com/
For additional information on Power over Ethernet, refer to the Power over
Ethernet Configuration chapter in the Configuration Guide available on the 3Com
Web site. Power over Ethernet management is available using the web interface or
the command line interface (CLI).
Connecting the
Console Cable
A Console cable is an 8-core cable. One end of the cable is a crimped RJ-45
connector for the connection to the Console port of the switch, and the other end
is a DB-9 female connector for the connection to the serial port on the Console
terminal, as shown in Figure 24.

or terminal where the switch is to be configured.
2 Connect the RJ-45 connector of the Console cable to the Console port of the
switch.
CAUTION: Pay attention to the mark on the Console port and be sure to plug the
connector to the right port.
If the switch has been powered on:
■
First connect the DB-9 connector of the Console cable to the PC before
connecting the RJ-45 connector to the switch.
■
Disconnect the DB-9 connector of the Console cable from the PC after
disconnecting the RJ-45 connector from the switch.

CAUTION: To protect your switch from unauthorized access, you must change all
three default passwords as soon as possible, even if you do not intend to actively
manage your switch. For more information on default users and changing default
passwords, see “Default Users and Passwords” on page 50.
IP Configuration
In order for the device to be remotely managed, it requires an IP address. You can
use one of the following methods to allocate IP information to your switch.
Configuring IP Manually
When you configure the IP information, the switch remembers the information
that you enter until you change it again. You should use the Manual IP
configuration method if:
■
you do not have a DHCP or BootP server on your network
■
you want to remove the risk of the IP address ever changing
■
your DHCP or BootP server does not allow you to allocate static IP addresses.
(Static IP addresses are necessary to ensure that the switch is always allocated
the same IP information.)
For most installations, 3Com recommends that you assign a known IP address to
your switch. This makes management simpler and more reliable as it is not
Setting Up Your Switch
39
dependent on a DHCP or BootP server, and eliminates the risk of the IP address
changing.
To manually enter IP information for your switch, refer to “Manually Configuring
IP Information” on page 42.
Automatically Configuring the IP Address using DHCP
By default the switch attempts to obtain an IP address from a DHCP server on the
network without requesting user intervention. When using automatic IP
configuration, it is important that the switch’s IP address is static so that you know
what it is, otherwise it will be difficult to manage that switch. Most DHCP servers
allow you to configure static IP addresses. Refer to the documentation that
accompanies your DHCP server.
For a detailed description of how automatic IP configuration operates, refer to the
Configuration Guide on the 3Com Web Site.
You should use the automatic IP configuration method if:
■
Your network uses DHCP to allocate IP information
■
Flexibility is needed. If the switch is deployed on a different subnet, it
automatically reconfigures itself with an appropriate IP address so that you to
not have to manually reconfigure the switch.
If the switch is not allocated with an automatic IP address, the IP configuration will
be blank or shown as ‘’’’.
If you use the automatic IP configuration method, you need to discover the
automatically allocated IP information before you can begin management.
40
CHAPTER 3: MANAGING YOUR SWITCH
Viewing
Automatically
Configured IP
Information
Connecting to the
Console Port
If you allow the switch to automatically configure its own IP information you need
to discover and view the IP information before you can begin to manage the
switch. You can discover the IP information by:
■
Connecting a workstation to the switch’s console port using a console cable.
You can then manually enter the IP information using the command line
interface (CLI).
■
Using Network Director or 3Com Network Supervisor. These applications
auto-discover the switch and display the automatically allocated IP information
assigned to the switch.
■
Reviewing information in your DHCP Server. The DHCP server in your network
may log IP address assignments. By reviewing this log, you may be able to
determine the device's IP address. Refer to your DHCP Server documentation
for details.
You can view the automatically configured IP information using the command line
interface (CLI) through a connection to the console port. This example describes a
local connection to the console port, rather than a remote one using a modem.
For further information on connecting using the console port see “Connecting the
Workstation to the Switch”on page 42.
Viewing IP Information using the Console Port
You are now ready to view the automatically allocated IP information using the
command line interface. To do so:
1 Connect your switch to the network using the Ethernet cable. As soon as a
network connection is made the switch begins the automatic IP configuration
process.
The automatic IP configuration process usually completes within one minute.
2 The CLI login sequence begins as soon as the switch detects a connection to its
console port.
If the login prompt does not begin immediately, press Return a few times until it
starts.
3 At the login and password prompts, enter admin as your user name and press
Return at the password prompt. If you have logged on correctly, <4210> is
displayed as shown in Figure 30.
Viewing Automatically Configured IP Information
41
Figure 30 User View Login
4 Enter display ip interface br to view a summary of allocated IP
addresses.
The initial set up of your switch is now complete and and you can now set up a
management method. See “Methods of Managing a Switch” on page 36 for
details.
If you do not intend to use the CLI from the console port to manage the switch,
you can logout, disconnect the serial cable, and close the terminal emulator
software.
Using 3Com Network
Director or 3Com
Network Supervisor
3Com has two management applications that will discover and help you manage
your network. 3Com Network Supervisor is freely distributed PC software ideal for
monitoring your network. It discovers your devices and connections, alerts you to
network or configuration issues, assists you in registering your devices, and
proactively monitors the health of your network.
3Com Network Director is chargeable PC software that adds advanced
configuration and control to the features available from 3Com Network
Supervisor.
Trial versions of both products are available at www.3com.com.
You can use 3Com Network Supervisor or 3Com Network Director to discover the
automatically allocated IP information. To do so:
1 Connect your switch to the network.
2 Launch 3Com Network Director or Network Supervisor and run the auto-discovery
wizard.
The application discovers the new switch and displays the IP information that has
been automatically allocated to the switch.
3 Power-up the switch and wait two minutes.
Most DHCP and BootP servers allow you to configure static IP addresses so that
you know the switch’s IP address. Refer to the documentation that accompanies
your DHCP or BootP server for more information on this topic.
If your network does not have a DHCP or BootP server, the workstation running
3Com Network Supervisor or 3Com Network Director must be on the same subnet
as the switch because auto-IP addresses are not routable.
42
CHAPTER 3: MANAGING YOUR SWITCH
Manually Configuring
IP Information
Connecting to the
Console Port
You can manually configure the switch IP information by:
■
Connecting a workstation to the switch’s console port using a console cable.
You can then manually enter the IP information using the command line
interface (CLI). This is the only way to assign an IP address to a device that does
not have an IP address already, or that has an unknown IP address. You can also
use this method to change switch’s IP information.
■
Connecting a workstation to one of the port’s on the switch’s front panel using
an Ethernet cable. You can then manually enter the IP information using the
web interface or the command line interface. This is only applicable if the
device already has an IP address and you know that address.
To set up your switch manually you can make a connection to the console port,
(this example describes a local connection to the console port, rather than one
using a modem). You can do this while the switch is offline (before you connect
the switch to a network) or while the switch is online (connected to a network).
Prerequisites
■
A workstation with terminal emulation software installed, such as Microsoft
Hyperterminal. This software allows you to communicate with the switch using
the console port directly.
■
Documentation supplied with the terminal emulation software.
■
The console cable (RJ-45) supplied with your switch.
You can find pin-out diagrams for the cable in “Pin-outs” on page 57.
■
IP information, including:
■
IP address
■
subnet mask
■
default gateway
■
management VLAN ID, normally set to the default value (1)
Connecting the Workstation to the Switch
To connec the workstation to the switch, perform the following steps:
1 Connect the workstation to the console port using the console cable as shown in
Figure 31.

■
8 data bits
■
no parity
■
1 stop bit
■
no hardware flow control
Refer to the documentation that accompanies the terminal emulation software for
more information.
3 Power up the switch. The Power on Self Test (POST) runs automatically. The Switch
4210 takes approximately one minute to boot.
Setting Up the Switch with IP Information
To manually set up the switch with IP information using the command line
interface perform the following steps
1 The command line interface login sequence begins as soon as the switch detects a
connection to its console port.
If the login prompt does not begin immediately, press Return a few times until it
starts.
2 At the login prompts, enter admin as your user name and press Return and at the
password prompt press Return again. If you have logged on correctly, <4210>

Setting Up Command
Line Interface
Management
This section describes how you can set up command line interface management
using a local console port connection or over the network.
User Interface Overview
User interface configuration is provided by the switch to configure and manage
the port data. There are two types of user interfaces:
CLI Management using
the Console Port
■
AUX User Interface—used to log in to your switch using the console port. A
fabric can have up to one AUX user interface.
■
VTY User Interface—used to Telnet to the switch. The switch can have up to
five VTY user interfaces.
To manage a switch using the command line interface using the local console port
connection:
1 Ensure you have connected your workstation to the console port correctly as
described in “Connecting to the Console Port” on page 42.
2 Your switch is now ready to continue being managed and/or configured through
the CLI using its console port.
CLI Management over
the Network
To manage a switch using the command line interface over a network using
Telnet:
1 Ensure you have already set up the switch with IP information as described in
“Methods of Managing a Switch” on page 36.
2 Check that you have the IP protocol correctly installed on your management
workstation. You can check this by trying to browse the World Wide Web. If you
can browse, the IP protocol is installed.
3 Check you can communicate with the switch by entering a ping command at the
DOS prompt in the following format:
c:\ ping xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
(where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of the switch)
If you get an error message, check that your IP information was entered correctly
and the switch is powered up.
4 To open a Telnet session using the DOS prompt, enter the IP address of the switch
that you wish to manage in the following format:
>telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
(where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of the switch)
If opening a Telnet session using third party software you will need to enter the IP
address in the format suitable for that software.
5 At the login and password prompts, enter admin as your user name and press
Return at the password prompt (or the password of your choice if you have
already modified the default passwords).

operation of your switch. There is also an explanation of IP addressing and
upgrading software.
The topics covered are:
■
Solving Problems Indicated by LEDs
■
Solving Hardware Problems
■
Solving Communication Problems
■
Solving Fabric Formation Problems
If you experience a problem that is not listed here, it may be included in the
Support section of the switch 4210 Command Reference Guide availabe on
3Com’s web site at www.3com.com.
For Technical Support information, see “Obtaining Support for Your 3Com
Products” on page 59.
52
CHAPTER 4: PROBLEM SOLVING
Solving Problems
Indicated by LEDs
If the LEDs on the switch indicate a problem, refer to the list of suggested
solutions below.
The PWR LED does not light
Check that the power cable is firmly connected to the switch and to the supply
outlet. If the connection is secure and there is still no power, you may have a faulty
power cord or an internal fault. Check the power cord by:
■
Testing it in another device.
■
Connecting a working power cord to the ‘problem’ device and contact your
supplier for advice.
On powering-up, the PWR LED lights Red
The switch unit has failed its Power On Self Test (POST) because of an internal
problem. The fault type will be indicated on the unit LEDs. Contact your supplier
for advice.
On powering-up, the PWR LED is flashing yellow
A port has failed and has been automatically disabled. You can verify this by
checking that the Port LED is quickly flashing Yellow. If a port fails, the switch
passes its Power On Self Test and continues to operate normally.
A Port LED is flashing yellow
The port has failed and has been automatically disabled. The switch passes its
Power On Self Test and continues to operate normally, even if one or more ports
are disabled.
A link is connected and yet the Port LED does not light
Check that:
■
The switch and the device at the other end of the link (or cable) are connected
securely.
■
The devices at both ends of the link are powered-up
■
The quality of cable is satisfactory
■
Auto-negotiation settings are the same at both ends.
Auto-negotiation problems will occur with 10BASE-T or 100BASE-T where
auto-negotiation is disabled and incorrect cables are being used (cross-over or
straight).
Auto-negotiation problems will occur with fiber if:
■
The Receiver (RX) and Transceiver (TX) cable connectors are swapped
■
Fibers are broken
■
Auto-negotiation differs at either end (a link appears at the ‘fixed’ end and
not at the auto-negotiation end)
Solving Hardware Problems
Solving Hardware
Problems
53
In the rare event of your switch unit experiencing a hardware failure, refer to the
list of suggested solutions below.
A fan failure warning message is received
Your switch has a fan monitoring system that will generate fan failure warning
messages. Fan failure could potentially reduce the lifetime of the switch. The
monitoring system polls the fan status at periodic intervals while the unit is
powered up.
If one fan has failed in the switch, a warning message will be generated in the
following ways:
■
Unit LED
The seven segment display will show a green flashing ‘f’.
■
RMON Trap
If configured, an RMON trap is generated and sent to the management
workstation.
■
Command Line Interface
An indication of a general hardware failure is provided through the Top level
menu displayed when logging on to the CLI. For more detailed information
about the failure select the display logbuffer command.
■
Web interface
An indication of fan failure is provided through the Device Summary table for
the specific unit. In addition all Summary tables turn red to indicate the fan
failure.
If a fan failure warning message is generated:
1 Power off the unit.
2 Check that the air vents are not obstructed.
3 Power cycle the unit. To do this, remove and reconnect the AC mains supply. If
another fan failure warning message is generated using the Command Line
Interface or the Web interface, return the unit to 3Com.
Unit fails, no SNMP fan failure message is received
1 Power cycle the unit. To do this, remove and reconnect the AC mains supply.
2 Check the command line interface (display logbuffer command) to
determine whether a thermal shutdown has occurred.
3 If no, return the unit:
If yes, check that:
■
The air vents are not obstructed.
■
The ambient temperatures and environmental conditions meet those specified
in “Technical Specifications” on page 73.
4 Power cycle the unit. If a further thermal shutdown occurs, and all environmental
conditions are satisfactory, return the unit to 3Com.
54
CHAPTER 4: PROBLEM SOLVING
Error message indicating that the SFP transceiver is invalid
The switch has identified that the SFP does not meet the minimum requirements
for the switch and has disabled the port. To correct this problem, completely
remove the SFP and replace it with a 3Com approved SFP.
Error message indicating that the SFP transceiver is faulty
To correct this problem, completely remove the SFP and then reinsert it.
Alternatively, insert another identical SFP. If the problem persists, contact 3Com
Technical Support.
Solving
Communication
Problems
If you experience communication problems with the switch, ensure that:
■
The switch IP address and Management VLAN ID has been configured.
■
If the switch is separated from your management application by a router,
ensure that the default gateway IP address within the switch is the same as the
IP address of the router.
■
The switch’s IP address was discovered correctly by your network management
application.
The following is a brief overview of IP addressing, and how to obtain a registered
IP address.
IP Addressing
To be managed correctly, each device on your network (for example a switch or
Hub) must have a unique IP address. IP addresses have the format n.n.n.n where n
is a decimal number between 0 and 255. An example IP address is 192.168.100.8.
The IP address is split into two parts:
■
The first part (‘192.168.100’ in the example) identifies the network on which
the device resides
■
The second part (‘.8’ in the example) identifies the device within the network
The natural subnet mask for this example is 255.255.255.0.
If your network has a connection to the external IP network, that is, you access the
Internet, you must apply for a registered IP address.
How do you obtain a registered IP Address?
The IP registration system ensures that every IP address used is unique; if you do
not have a registered IP address, you may be using an identical address to
someone else and your network will not operate correctly.
InterNIC Registration Services is the organization responsible for supplying
registered IP addresses. The following contact information is correct at time of
publication:
World Wide Web site: http://www.internic.net
If your IP network is internal to your organization only, that is, you do not access
the Internet, you may use any arbitrary IP address as long as it is not being used by

another device on your network. 3Com suggests you use addresses in the range
192.168.0.0 to 192.168.255.255 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.
These suggested IP addresses are part of a group of IP addresses that have been
set aside specially for use ‘in house’ only.
Solving Fabric
Formation Problems
If you are having problems with correctly forming a fabric, first ensure that
Spanning Tree is enabled. If it is enabled, do the following:
1 Power off all units in the fabric.
2 Check all the cable connections in the fabric.
3 Check the ports have been enabled as fabric ports.
4 Power on all units in the fabric.
