Electrical Cautions
CAUTION: Use only the power cable provided with your Topspin system. Inspect the power cord and
determine if it provides the proper plug and is appropriately certified for use with your electrical system.
Discard the cord if it is inappropriate for your country’s electrical system and obtain the proper cord, as
required by your national electrical codes or ordinances.
viii
CAUTION: Grounding is supplied by the ground-prong on the 3-prong power cable. Do not attach a
separate ground cable. Do not use adapter plugs. Do not remove the ground prong from the cable.
Ensure the ground connection on the power supply is correct and functioning before applying power to
the Topspin system.
CAUTION: Always ground yourself before touching any internal Topspin system component to avoid
damage from electrostatic discharge (ESD).
CAUTION: The Topspin system has two power cables. The operator must disconnect all power cables
before attempting to remove the system from the rack.
CAUTION: Remove power cables by grasping the cable connector and pulling straight out.If the
chassis comes equipped with a power-plug retainer, move the bail wire used to retain the plug to the
side before attempting to remove the power plug. Replace power-supply cables be grasping the cable
connector, align the connector with the power jack, and insert the connector straight into the jack.If the
chassis comes equipped with a power-plug retainer, move the bail wire back into place to keep the
power plug firmly in place.
CAUTION: The Topspin system contains lithium batteries. Do not attempt to replace or discard these
batteries. The batteries may only be serviced by Topspin service personnel.
CAUTION: Observe and follow service markings. Do not service the Topspin system, except as
explained in the Topspin documentation supplied with your system. Opening the chassis or removing
the enclosure cover exposes you to electrical shock and may damage system components.

Features Overview
The Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008 Server Switch provides data center managers with a
high-performance, low-latency interconnect.
•
“System Architecture” on page 11.
•
“About the Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008 Chassis” on page 13.
•
“Administrative Features” on page 20.
System Architecture
Hot Standby
On the Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008, the inactive controller card remains on hot standby so that it can
assume control in the event that the active controller card fails over. The hot standby feature lets the
Server Switch fail over without rebooting or resetting any cards in the chassis.
You can access the hot standby controller card with a connection to the serial console port. A CLI
session to the standby controller provides read-only access to the controller. You can view but not
configure the card.
Because the hot standby features keeps both controller cards up, the show card command identifies the
card on which your CLI session runs. In the command output, an asterisk identifies the controller card
to which you are connected. In the example that follows, the CLI session applies to the controller card
in slot 11 (the active card), as identified by the asterisk next to the slot number (line 10).

The oper code field of the command output identifies the controller card as the active card (normal) or
the hot standby card (standby). By default, when you power on a Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008, the card
in slot 11 becomes active and the card in slot 12 becomes the standby. The master and standby
controllers automatically synchronize state and configuration information.
InfiniBand Connectivity
The Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008 is an enterprise-class managed 960Gb/S, 6U InfiniBand (IB) Switch
that is capable of supporting up to 96 4X ports.
In addition, the Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008 is designed to support the 12x InfiniBand ports when they
become available.
Flexibility
The architecture of the Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008 offers flexibility in that the switch fabric modules
are generic, and will assume the role of fabric controller or fabric node depending on the slot into which
they are installed.
This increases the ease of replacing components because only one type of fabric card has to be stocked,
and will become a controller or node, depending on what is needed.
Hi-Availability
Hardware
The Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008 features hot-swappable and redundant:
•
Power Supply Modules
•
Fan Trays
•
Line Interface Modules (redundant connection from HCA)
•
Fabric Controller Modules (in redundant Core or Node slots)
•
Management Interface module
The Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008 features hot-swappable:
•
Chassis ID
Ports
No failure on any single InfiniBand port will result in interruptions in service for any of the other ports.
13
Fabric
For redundancy, InfiniBand Host Channel Adapters (HCAs) can be dual-connected to a redundant pair
of Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008s.
In an InfiniBand fabric that includes more than one Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008: if the subnet manager
on the Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008 that is acting as the master fails, another subnet manager will take
over within seconds. All necessary state information is kept in sync.
Non-Blocking Architecture
The Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008 provides non-blocking switch element architecture with full
bi-directional bandwidth for the switch chassis.
About the Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008 Chassis

LEDs are located on both the front and back of the chassis. Refer to “Interpreting the Front Panel
LEDs” on page 67 and “Interpreting the Back Panel LEDs” on page 73 for more information.
Power Supplies
Refer to “Installing a New Power Supply Module” on page 38 for installation instructions.
The Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008 has two AC-DC bulk power supply modules.
•
Only one power supply, in either of the two slots, is required to power the system. However, a
blanking panel is required for any unused bay.
17
•
The power supplies are 1U, 48V, 1200W
•
The supplies provide regulated +48V DC to all other modules in the system.
•
Each power supply has self contained fans for cooling.
Fan Trays
Refer to “Installing a Fan Module” on page 41 for installation instructions.
The fan trays are redundant, hot-swappable cooling units.
•
Only one fan tray, in either of the two slots, is required to cool the system. However, a blanking
panel is required for any unused bay.
•
The replacement of any one fan tray does not disrupt the operation of the device in any way, and
can be successfully completed without having to remove the device from a rack, or disconnect any
cables.
•
The fan modules use DC Voltage regulators to control fan speed and contain a hardware fan control
circuit, which controls and monitors the fan speed.
•
The fan module will default to full speed after a power-on or reset condition.
•
If one the fans fails, the redundant fan will go to full speed (if one is available).
CAUTION: The fan modules do not have guards. Do not remove a fan module completely from the
bay until the blades have stopped moving (approximately 15 seconds).
Management Interface Modules
See Figure 1-2 on page 14 for a diagram of the chassis.
Refer to “Installing a Management Interface Module” on page 50 for installation instructions.
The Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008 supports redundant, hot-swappable Management Interface modules,
each of which is paired to one of the Fabric Controller Core modules.
The Management Interface modules provide the following functions:
•
RS-232 serial console port
•
10/100 Ethernet management port
•
System real time clock (RTC)
•
Intra-system Ethernet switch, which provides a system configuration management data-path to all
fabric modules.
•
Provide mirrors of the LED indicators from the front side of the chassis for the power supply, fans,
and over-all system status. (refer to “Management Interface Module LEDs” on page 73).

Understanding the Core Slot to Mgmt Interface Module Connection
Each Core slot in the chassis (refer to “The Core Slot” on page 18) is connected to 1 port on the
Management Interface module. The controller (fabric interface module inserted in the core slot) selects
the Management Interface module to which it will connect.
The pairing of Management Interface module to core slot is as follows:
•
The Management Interface module in slot #15 is connected to the Fabric Controller Module in the
Core slot #11.
•
The Management Interface module in slot #16 is connected to the Fabric Controller Module in the
Core slot #12.
For example, removing the Fabric Controller from the Core slot 11 would cause both the Fabric
Controller card and its paired Management Interface module in slot 15 to fail-over. The new primary
Controller would be slot 12 and the primary Management Interface would be slot 16.
Fabric Controller Modules
See Figure 1-2 on page 14 for a diagram of the chassis.
Refer to “Installing a Fabric Controller” on page 44 for Fabric Controller module installation
instructions.
The Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008 contains six fabric control modules.
The fabric controller modules perform the following roles within the system:
•
System Controller
•
Switch fabric spine
•
Switch fabric end-nodes
•
Stores redundant Vital Product Data (VPD) from the Chassis ID module. This allows the chassis to
continue functioning (and the VPD information to be recovered) even if a Chassis ID module fails.
Each Fabric Controller module runs the management software and contains non-volatile storage.
The behavior and responsibility of each fabric controller module is determined by the type of slot into
which it is inserted. Each fabric controller module can be installed in either a Node slot or a Core slot
(refer to “Node and Core Slots” on page 18).
Master/Slave and Standby Roles
When the CPU of a fabric module detects that is in a Core slot, it will arbitrate for system mastership
and run system wide control functions in addition to its local management functions.
•
One fabric controller in the Core slot acts as the Master
•
One fabric controller in the Core slot acts as the Standby to the Master
•
Fabric controllers in Node slots act as slaves
•
Note: Fabric controllers in Node slots do not act in active/standby configuration
Node and Core Slots
The fabric controller modules can occupy either a Node slot or a Core slot in the chassis.
The Node Slot
There are four Node slots in the Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008.
Fabric modules installed in Node slots provide fabric leaf switching, as opposed to controller
functionality.
The Core Slot
There are two Core slots in the Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008.
19
•
At least one Fabric Controller module must be installed in the Core slot for the chassis to boot.
•
When a module is installed in a Core slot, it acts as either the master or standby controller for the
chassis, with all modules in the system being slaves to the master controller.
•
The subnet manager runs on the fabric module installed in the Core slot that has arbitrated to be the
master.
•
The Core slot module also acts as the switch fabric spine, interconnecting the end-nodes.
Each Core slot is connected to 1 of 2 ports on the Management Interface module.
The pairing of core slot to Management I/O module is as follows:
•
The Fabric Interface Module in the Core slot #11 is connected to the Management I/O module in
slot #15 .
•
The Fabric Interface Module in the Core slot #12 is connected to the Management I/O module in
slot #16.
Line Interface Modules (LIM)
Refer to “Installing a LIM Module” on page 48 for installation instructions.
The Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008 has hot-swappable Line Interface Modules (LIMs), which are
installed in the rear of the chassis; this is opposite of the fabric modules (see Figure 1-2 on page 14).
The LIMs provide the physical InfiniBand port interfaces and are 4x over copper. The number of LIMs
in your Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008 chassis depends on your particular configuration.
Chassis ID Module
The chassis ID module is hot-swappable, and is located on the rear of the chassis (see Figure 1-2 on
page 14).
Figure 1-6: Chassis ID Module
How the Chassis ID is Used
Upon initial boot-up of the Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008, the Chassis ID is read by the system, and the
unique information is populated to the rest of the chassis.
The Chassis ID module contains model and serial number information, and logs certain error
information. Refer to “Vital Product Data Storage” on page 20.
About Replacing a Chassis ID Module
In the event that a Chassis ID module must be replaced, the replacement module will arrive with your
previous serial number and GUID. When a Chassis ID modules is installed, the new Chassis ID is
detected. This allows your chassis to maintain the same identification and GUID.
Rack Alarm
The Rack Alarm (also referred to as the Rack Locator) feature is supported with release 2.3.0 and later.

Considerations Before Removing a Fabric Controller Card
Before removing a fabric controller card from either a node or a core slot of the Topspin 270/Cisco SFS
7008, keep the following in mind:
1.
The fabric controllers cards in the core slots are paired to the Management Interface modules on the
other side of the chassis.
•
Fabric controller card in slot 11 is paired to the Management Interface module in slot 15.
•
Fabric controller card in slot 12 is paired to Management Interface module in slot 16.
Therefore, before removing a fabric controller from a core slot, make sure that the second pairing
of Fabric Controller/Management Interface module is intact.
2.
Removing the fabric controller in the core slot that is currently acting as master will cause a
fail-over to the standby pair of fabric controller/Management Interface modules.
It takes up to 3 seconds for the standby fabric controller to become a new master.
a.
If you are removing a fabric controller card from a node slot, the card will be located in slots 9,
10, 13, and 14 (marked on the chassis).
b.
If you are removing a fabric controller card from a core slot, the card will be located in slots 11
or 12.
Removing a Fabric Controller
1.
Ground yourself appropriately.
2.
Verify that you have a means of covering the slot before removing the module. Do not remove the
module unless you have a replacement or a blanking panel for the slot, as overheating may occur.
3.
Remove the bezel cover from the front of the switch.
4.
Determine whether the Fabric Controller you want to remove is installed in a Core slot or a Node
slot. Refer to Figure 1-1 for a diagram of the chassis.
If you are removing a Fabric Controller from one of the core slots, make sure that the redundant
core Fabric Controller is functional.
Removal of the Fabric Controller currently acting as master will cause a fail-over. It takes up to 3
seconds for the standby fabric controller to become a new master.

Upgrading a New Fabric Controller Module
When you add a new fabric controller module to a production Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008, you must
upgrade the new module so that it runs the same firmware as the existing module. If you neglect to
upgrade the second fabric controller module, your Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008 will experience
problems in the event of a failover because the failover will boot a different OS version.
The critical difference between this upgrade process and the standard upgrade process occurs when you
force the Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008 to skip the standard controller module failover when you install
and reboot. The instructions that follow assume that
•
You added the new fabric controller module to the Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008 as it ran.
•
You have not yet rebooted the chassis.
Upgrade a New Fabric Controller Module with
the CLI
To upgrade the module, perform the following steps:
1.
Launch a CLI session to your Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008 and log in as a user with administrative
privileges.
Example
Login: super
Password: xxxxx
2.
Enter the enable command to enter Privileged Execute mode.
Example
SFS-270> enable
SFS-270#
3.
Enter the show card-inventory command to view the images that run on each fabric controller
module (the devices in slots 11 and 12). If the images match, you do not need to upgrade the new
management I/O module.
4.
Enter the copy command with
•
the location and file name of the image file that you want to copy
•
the destination and file name for the file on your chassis
to copy an image file to your Topspin 270/Cisco SFS 7008.
64
NOTE: If the appropriate image file already resides on your active fabric controller module, skip
this step and proceed to step 5.
Example
SFS-270# copy ftp://bob:mypassword@10.0.0.5/SFS-270-TopspinOS-2.3.0-build210.img
image:SFS-270-TopspinOS-2.3.0-build210.img
5.
Enter the install command with the image that you want to install.
NOTE: Before you install an image, verify that you have brought up all of the cards on the chassis
that you want to run the new image. Cards that run a different image from the chassis cannot pass
traffic.
NOTE: Alert other users that you plan to install a new image to your Server Switch.
Example
SFS-270# install image:OS-image-230.img
Proceed with install? [yes(default) | no]
6.
Enter the configure terminal command to enter Global Configuration mode.
7.
Enter the boot-config command with
•
the primary-boot-image keyword
•
the directory of the installed image that you installed in step 5
to assign the image that you want both fabric controller modules to boot.
Example
SFS-270(config)# boot-config primary-image-source
SFS-270-TopspinOS-2.3.0/build210
8.
Enter the exit command to return to Privileged Execute mode.
