INTRODUCTION
Introducing the XRN Interconnect Module Kit
panel of the Module. For explanations on how the LEDs
work, see the “LED Function Tables” on page 3.
With an XRN Interconnect Module Kit (3C17715) you can
interconnect two Switch units.
The Interconnect Cable
This kit contains:
„
Two XRN Interconnect Modules (3C17716)
„
One standard XRN Interconnect Cable (3C17721)
The Interconnect Cable is used to interconnect two Switch
units, both fitted with Interconnect Modules.
The standard Interconnect Cable is 1 m (3.28 ft) long and
color-coded with a yellow marker at one end and a blue
marker at the other end.
The Switches that support this module are:
„
SuperStack® 3 Switch 4900
„
SuperStack 3 Switch 4900 SX
„
SuperStack 3 Switch 4924
„
SuperStack 3 Switch 4950
„
3Com® Switch 4060
„
3Com Switch 4050
!
The Interconnect Module requires management software
version 3.0 or later to be installed on the Switch. For
instructions on upgrading the management software, refer
to the documentation supplied with your Switch.
!
You can gather information about the status of the
Module and its packet activity using the Expansion Module
LEDs on the front of the Switch and the LEDs on the front
The end of the Interconnect Cable that you connect to the
Switch determines the identity of the Switch. The Switch
that has the blue end of the cable connected to it will be
Unit 1. The Switch that has the yellow end of the cable
connected to it will be Unit 2.
!
The terms Unit 1 and Unit 2 are used simply to identify
the Switch units for management purposes only.

INSTALLING
AND
REMOVING
THE
MODULE
Installing the Module into a Switch
WARNING: Installation and removal of the Module must
be carried out by qualified personnel only. Before installing
the Module into a unit, you must first disconnect the unit
from the mains power supply. For full safety instructions,
refer to the user guide that accompanies the unit.
To install the Module:
1 Ensure that the power supply and the backbone
connection cables are disconnected from the Switch.
Always wear an anti-static wristband connected to a
suitable earth point.
AVERTISSEMENT: Confiez l'installation et la dépose de ce
Module à un personnel qualifié. Avant d'installer ce
Module dans un groupe, vous devez au préalable
débrancher ce groupe de l'alimentation secteur. Pour
prendre connaissance des consignes complètes de sécurité,
consultez le guide utilisateur qui accompagne ce groupe.
2 Undo the three screws securing the blanking plate at the
rear of the Switch using a suitable screwdriver. Do not
remove any other screws from the rear of the Switch.
3 Remove the blanking plate.
VORSICHT: Die Installation und der Ausbau des Moduls
darf nur durch Fachpersonal erfolgen. Vor dem Installieren
des Moduls in einem Gerät muß zuerst der Netzstecker
des Geräts abgezogen werden. Vollständige
Sicherheitsanweisungen sind dem Benutzerhandbuch des
Geräts zu entnehmen.
4 Hold the Module so that the text on the front panel is
upright and insert it into the Switch, ensuring the
connectors are fully engaged (see Figure 2). Make sure the
Module is pushed fully in.
WARNING: When the Module is inserted into the switch,
the captive screws securing the Module must be tightened
with a suitable tool. Keep the blanking plate and the
fixings in a safe place. If you remove the Module at any
time, you must then replace the blanking plate.
Keep the blanking plate and screws in a safe place. If you
remove the Module at any time, you must replace the
blanking plate to prevent dust and debris entering the
Switch. Replacing the blanking plate will also help circulate
cool air through the Switch.
5 Secure the Module by tightening the three captive screws
with a suitable screwdriver.
!
AVERTISSEMENT: Quand le Module est inséré dans le
commutateur, visser le module, en le securisant fortemant
avec un outil adapté. Conservez la plaque d'obturation et
les fixations en lieu sûr. Si vous retirez le Module à tout
instant, vous devez alors replacer la plaque d'obturation.
Removing the Module from a Switch
To remove the Module:
1 Ensure that the power supply and the backbone
connection cables are disconnected from the Switch.
Always wear an anti-static wristband connected to a
suitable earth point.
VORSICHT: Beim Einsetzen des Moduls in dem Switch
sind die unverlierbaren Schrauben mit einem passenden
Werkzeug festzuziehen. Die Distanzplatte und die
Befestigungselemente an einem sicheren Ort aufbewahren.
Beim Austausch des Moduls ist auch die Distanzplatte zu
ersetzen.
2 Undo the three captive screws on the Module with a
suitable screwdriver. Do not remove any other screws from
the rear of the Switch.
3 Remove the Module.
Handling the Module
4 If you are not fitting another Module immediately, you
must replace the blanking plate to ensure that dust and
debris do not enter the Switch. Replacing the blanking
plate will also help circulate cool air through the Switch.
The Module can be easily damaged by electrostatic
discharge. To prevent damage, observe the following:
„
Always wear an anti-static wristband connected to a
suitable earth point.
„
Do not remove the Module from its packaging until
you are ready to install it into a Switch.
„
Do not touch any of the pins, connections or
components on the Module.
Figure 2

INTERCONNECTING TWO SWITCHES
Interconnecting Two Switches
!
To interconnect two Switches, you will need the XRN
Interconnect Module Kit (part number 3C17715). This kit
contains:
„
Two XRN Interconnect Modules (3C17716)
„
One standard XRN Interconnect Cable (3C17721)
LED Function Tables
You can gather information about the status of the
Module and its packet activity using the Expansion Module
LEDs on the front of the Switch (see Table 1) and the Port
LEDs on the front panel of the Module (see Table 2).
You can interconnect two Switch units that are located in
separate racks with a 5 m (16.40 ft) long Interconnect
cable (3C17722). Contact your network supplier for
further information.
!
Table 1
CAUTION: It is important that you only plug an XRN

MODULE PORT RESTRICTIONS
When using the Interconnect Module, note the following:
„
Only one Interconnect Module may be fitted into the
Switch.
„
The Interconnect Module is not hot-swappable.
3
„
The Interconnect Module is not hot-insertable.
„
The Interconnect Module only operates with the Switch
units listed on page 1.
.
PROBLEM SOLVING
If you suspect a problem, carry out these steps before
contacting your supplier:
„
„
Check that the Interconnect Module is correctly
installed in the Switch.
If the Module Status LED on the front of the Switch is
flashing yellow, the Module is installed but not
supported by the Switch. The Switch will continue to
operate normally but you must upgrade the
management software on the Switch for it to recognize
and support the Module and enable the Module’s
ports. You can download the latest version of the
management software from the 3Com website at:
http://support.3com.com
When you insert the Module into the Switch, push the
Module in until the Module’s back plate is in full
contact with the Switch’s chassis. Secure the Module to
the Switch by tightening the three captive screws fully
with a screwdriver. If an error is indicated during the
Power On Self Test, check that the module has been
correctly inserted.
„
Check that the Interconnect cabling is correctly
connected and secured.
„
Check that the Switch, into which the Interconnect
Module is fitted, is powered-up.
Check that the correct management software is being
used on the Switch.
Alternatively, if you received a CD-ROM with your
Module, you can upgrade your Switch with the
management software contained on the CD-ROM.
