Creating a Serial Connection
To create a serial connection to the SilkWorm 3014 you need to connect to the serial port on the DRAC/MC of the
PowerEdge 1855 chassis.
For details about setting up the terminal emulation with the correct connection and login information using the
PowerEdge 1855 DRAC/MC, refer to the PowerEdge 1855 documentation.
Connecting to the Switch
To log in to the switch through the serial connection:
1.
Verify that the switch has completed POST. When POST is complete, the port status and switch power and status
LEDs return to a standard healthy state.
2.
Login to the DRAC/MC as specified in “Creating a Serial Connection” on page 5.
3.
At the command prompt, type connect Switch-3 or connect switch-4 depending on which bay the Silkworm 3014 is
plugged into (bay 3 or bay 4).
4.
At the login prompt, log in to the Silkworm 3014 switch as admin and enter the password.
Setting the Switch IP Address
By default, the IP address for the SilkWork 3014 is configured as 10.77.77.77. To replace the default IP address and
related information:
1.
Log in using the terminal emulator and enter the ipAddrSet command. Follow the onscreen instructions and supply
the correct information:
switch:admin> ipaddrset
Ethernet IP Address [10.77.77.77]:10.32.53.47
Ethernet Subnetmask [255.0.0.0]:255.255.240.0
Fibre Channel IP Address [0.0.0.0]:
Fibre Channel Subnetmask [0.0.0.0]:
Gateway IP Address [0.0.0.0]:10.32.48.1
Set IP address now?[y = set now, n = next reboot]:y
IP address being changed...
Committing configuration...Done.
switch:admin>
2.
Optionally, verify that the address was correctly set by typing the ipAddrShow command at the prompt.

Creating an Ethernet Connection
To create an Ethernet connection to the SilkWorm 3014:
1.
Remove the plug from the Ethernet port.
2.
Connect an Ethernet cable to the switch Ethernet port and to the workstation or to an Ethernet network containing the
workstation.
Note
At this point the switch can be accessed remotely. Ensure that the switch is not being modified from any
other connection until configuration is complete.
Completing the Switch Configuration
To complete the switch configuration:
1.
Log on to the switch by telnet, using the admin account.
2.
Modify the domain ID if required.
The default domain ID is 1. If the switch is not powered on until after it is connected to the fabric and the default
domain ID is already in use, the domain ID for the new switch is automatically reset to a unique value. If the switch is
connected to the fabric after is has been powered on and the default domain ID is already in use, the fabric segments.
To find the domain IDs that are currently in use, run the fabricShow command on another switch in the fabric.
a.
Disable the switch by typing the switchDisable command.
b.
Enter the configure command.
The command prompts display sequentially; enter a new value or press Enter to accept each default value.
c.
Enter y after the Fabric parameters prompt, as shown:
Fabric parameters (yes, y, no, n): [no] y
d.
Enter a unique domain ID (such as the domain ID used by the previous switch, if still available):
Domain: (1..239) [1] 3
3.
e.
Complete the remaining prompts or press Ctrl-D to accept the remaining settings without completingall the
prompts.
f.
Reenable the switch by entering the switchEnable command.
Install the SFP transceivers in the External Fibre Channel ports, as required.
a.
Remove the plugs from the ports to be used.
b.
Position a transceiver so that it is oriented correctly and insert it into a port until it is firmly seated and the
latching mechanism clicks.
For instructions specific to the type of transceiver, refer to the transceiver manufacturer’s documentation.
c.
6 of 10
Repeat steps a and b for the remaining ports, as required.

Publication Number: 53-0000689-01
4.
Connect the cables to the transceivers.
The transceivers are keyed to ensure correct orientation. If a transceiver does not install easily, ensure that it is
correctly oriented. The cables used in trunking groups must meet specific requirements. For a list of these
requirements, refer to the Brocade Fabric OS Features Guide.
Caution
A 50-micron cable should not be bent to a radius less than 2 inches under full tensile load
and 1.2 inches with no tensile load.
Tie wraps are not recommended for optical cables because they are easily overtightened.
5.
a.
Orient a cable connector so that the key (the ridge on one side of connector) aligns with the slot in the transceiver.
Then, insert the cable into the transceiver until the latching mechanism clicks. For instructions specific to cable
type, refer to the cable manufacturer’s documentation.
b.
Repeat step a for the remaining transceivers as required.
Check the LEDs to verify that all components are functional.
For information about LED patterns, refer to the SilkWorm 3014 Hardware Reference Manual.
6.
Verify the correct operation of the SilkWorm 3014 by typing the switchShow command from the workstation.
This command provides information about switch and port status.
7.
Verify the correct operation of the SilkWorm 3014 in the fabric by typing the fabricShow command from the
workstation.
This command provides general information about the fabric.
8.
Back up the switch configuration to an FTP server by typing the configUpload command and following the prompts.
This command uploads the switch configuration to the server, making it available for downloading to a replacement
switch if necessary. Brocade recommends backing up the configuration on a regular basis to ensure that a complete
configuration is available for downloading to a replacement switch.
For specific instructions about how to back up the configuration, refer to the Fabric OS Procedures Guide. The
switchShow, fabricShow, and configUpload commands are described in detail in the Fabric OS Command
Reference Manual.
Connecting to the Switch Using Web Tools
To connect to the switch using Brocade’s Web Tools:
1.
On the management console, open a Web browser, such as Internet Explorer.
The Web browser must be connected to the same network as the switch.
2.
Enter the IP address of the switch in the address field.
