manager, or other management options described in this section for further
configuration.
Using the CLI
After setting up and installing the switch in your network, you can enter
Cisco IOS commands and parameters through the CLI. Access the CLI either by
connecting your PC directly to the switch console port or through a Telnet session
from a remote PC or workstation. You can also access the CLI through the server
chassis serial console port of the active Dell CMC. For more information, see the
hardware installation guide on Cisco.com.
Using the Device Manager
The simplest way to manage the switch is by using the device manager that is in
the switch memory. This is an easy-to-use web interface that offers quick
configuration and monitoring. You can access the device manager from anywhere
in your network through a web browser. The device manager dashboard is shown
in Figure 6.

Planning and Creating a Switch Stack (Only 3130G-S and 3130X-S Switches)
Other Management Options
You can use SNMP management applications such as CiscoWorks. You also can
manage it from an SNMP-compatible workstation that is running platforms such
as SunNet Manager.
See the “Accessing Help Online” section on page 29 for a list of supporting
documentation.
Planning and Creating a Switch Stack (Only 3130G-S
and 3130X-S Switches)
A switch stack is a set of up to nine stacking-capable switches that are connected
through their StackWise Plus ports. One switch controls the operation of the stack
and is called the stack master. The stack master and the other switches in the stack
are stack members. Layer 2 and Layer 3 protocols present the entire switch stack
as a single entity to the network. Stacking is optional.
When switches are not stacked, each acts as a standalone switch. For general
concepts and procedures to manage switch stacks, see the switch software
configuration guide and command reference on Cisco.com.
Caution
The Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3130 for Dell and the Cisco Catalyst Blade
Switch 3032 for Dell do not support switch stacks with other types of blades
switches as members. Combining the stacking-capable blade switches for Dell
with other types of blade switches in a switch stack might cause the switch to
work improperly or to fail.
Before you connect the switches in a stack, keep in mind these stacking
guidelines:
•
22
You should install the stack master switch and run the initial setup program
on that switch before you connect the StackWise Plus cables to other stack
members. We recommend that you assign the highest priority value to the
switch that you prefer to be the stack master. This ensures that the switch is
re-elected as stack master if a re-election occurs. As you add new switches to
the stack, they automatically become stack members.

Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3130 for Dell and Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3032 for Dell Getting Started Guide
Planning and Creating a Switch Stack (Only 3130G-S and 3130X-S Switches)
To assign a priority value after you have installed and initially configured the
first switch, see the “Configuring the Switch Stack Master” section on
page 19.
•
When you connect the StackWise Plus cables and create a stack, you can
communicate with the master switch internal Ethernet management port
(Fa0) port, but not the Fa0 ports of the member switches. Only one Fa0
interface can be active, and that interface is the one on the active stack master.
•
For conditions that might cause a stack master re-election or to manually elect
the stack master, see the “Managing Switch Stacks” chapter in the switch
software configuration guide on Cisco.com.
•
You can stack any combination of up to nine Catalyst 3130G-S and 3130X-S
switches. You can stack only the Catalyst 3130 switches; other switches
cannot be stacked.
•
Before installation, verify the StackWise Plus cable length. Depending on
your configuration, you might need different sized cables. If you do not
specify the length of the StackWise Plus cable when you order your product,
the 1-meter cable is supplied. If you need the 0.5-meter cable or the 3-meter
cable, you can order these StackWise Plus cables from your Cisco sales
representative:
– CAB-STK-E-0.5M= (0.5-meter cable)
– CAB-STK-E-1M= (1-meter cable)
– CAB-STK-E-3M= (3-meter cable)
For switch dimensions, StackWise Plus cable part numbers, and additional
stacking guidelines, see the switch hardware installation guide on Cisco.com. For
concepts and procedures to manage switch stacks, see the switch software
configuration guide and the stack compatibility guide, also on Cisco.com.
To create a switch stack:
•
Install the member switches if you have not already done so.
•
Connect the StackWise Plus cables as described in the “Planning and
Creating a Switch Stack (Only 3130G-S and 3130X-S Switches)” section on
page 22.
•
Configure the member switches through the master switch by using the CLI.

Stack Cabling Configuration Example
This section shows one stacking example in which a single chassis with two
switches in a single server chassis create one stack. Many other types of
configurations are possible provided that you stack no more than nine switches.
For more configuration examples, see the hardware installation guide on
Cisco.com.
In this example, the stack uses the 1-meter StackWise Plus cable to make
redundant connections between two Catalyst 3130 switches in a single chassis
(see Figure 7).

Connecting to the Switch Ports
Connecting to the Switch Ports
This section describes how to connect to the fixed switch ports and to the
10-Gigabit Ethernet module slots.
Connecting to 10/100/1000 Ports
The 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports use standard RJ-45 connectors with Ethernet
pinouts. The maximum cable length is 328 feet (100 meters). The 100BASE-TX
and 1000BASE-T traffic requires Category 5, Category 5e, or Category 6 UTP
cable. The 10BASE-T traffic can use Category 3 or Category 4 cable.
The autonegotiation feature is enabled by default on the switch. At this setting,
the switch ports configure themselves to operate at the speed of attached devices.
If the attached device does not support autonegotiation, you can explicitly set the
switch port speed and the duplex parameters. To maximize performance, either let
the ports autonegotiate both speed and duplex, or set the port speed and duplex
parameters on both ends of the connection.
For simplified cabling, the automatic medium-dependent interface crossover
(auto-MDIX) feature is enabled by default. With auto-MDIX enabled, the switch
detects the required cable type for copper Ethernet connections and configures the
interface accordingly. Therefore, you can use either a crossover or a
straight-through cable for connections to a switch 10/100/1000 Ethernet port,
regardless of the type of device on the other end of the connection.
See the switch software configuration guide or the switch command reference on
Cisco.com for more information about enabling or disabling autonegotiation and
auto-MDIX.

Connecting to the Switch Ports
Installing and Connecting to Devices in the 10-Gigabit
Ethernet Slots
The switch 10-Gigabit Ethernet module slots are used for connections to other
switches and routers. The module slots operate in full-duplex mode and use the
hot-swappable Cisco X2 transceiver modules and the Cisco TwinGig Converter
Module. The X2 transceiver modules have SC connectors to connect to multimode
fiber (MMF) and single-mode fiber (SMF) cables. The Cisco converter modules
have two SFP-module slots that convert the 10-Gigabit interface into a dual SFP
module interface.
Figure 9 shows how to install an X2 transceiver module into the 10-Gigabit port.

Use only Cisco X2 transceiver modules, Cisco converter modules, and Cisco SFP
modules with the switch. Each Cisco module has an internal serial EEPROM that
is encoded with security information. This encoding provides a way for Cisco to
identify and validate that the module meets the requirements for the switch.

In Case of Difficulty
Verify Port Connectivity
After you connect a device to the switch port, the port LED turns amber while the
switch establishes a link. This process takes about 30 seconds. The LED turns
green when the switch and the attached device have an established link. If the
LED is off, the device might not be turned on, there might be a cable problem, or
there might be a problem with the adapter installed in the device. See the “In Case
of Difficulty” section on page 28 for information about online assistance.
In Case of Difficulty
If you experience difficulty, help is available in this section and on Cisco.com.
