THE SPECIFICATIONS AND INFORMATION REGARDING THE PRODUCTS IN THIS MANUAL ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. ALL
STATEMENTS, INFORMATION, AND RECOMMENDATIONS IN THIS MANUAL ARE BELIEVED TO BE ACCURATE BUT ARE PRESENTED WITHOUT
WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. USERS MUST TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR APPLICATION OF ANY PRODUCTS.
THE SOFTWARE LICENSE AND LIMITED WARRANTY FOR THE ACCOMPANYING PRODUCT ARE SET FORTH IN THE INFORMATION PACKET THAT
SHIPPED WITH THE PRODUCT AND ARE INCORPORATED HEREIN BY THIS REFERENCE. IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO LOCATE THE SOFTWARE LICENSE
OR LIMITED WARRANTY, CONTACT YOUR CISCO REPRESENTATIVE FOR A COPY.
The following information is for FCC compliance of Class A devices: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant
to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial
environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio-frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause
harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case users will be required
to correct the interference at their own expense.
The following information is for FCC compliance of Class B devices: The equipment described in this manual generates and may radiate radio-frequency energy. If it is not
installed in accordance with Cisco’s installation instructions, it may cause interference with radio and television reception. This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits for a Class B digital device in accordance with the specifications in part 15 of the FCC rules. These specifications are designed to provide reasonable
protection against such interference in a residential installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
Modifying the equipment without Cisco’s written authorization may result in the equipment no longer complying with FCC requirements for Class A or Class B digital
devices. In that event, your right to use the equipment may be limited by FCC regulations, and you may be required to correct any interference to radio or television
communications at your own expense.
You can determine whether your equipment is causing interference by turning it off. If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the Cisco equipment or one of its
peripheral devices. If the equipment causes interference to radio or television reception, try to correct the interference by using one or more of the following measures:
• Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference stops.
• Move the equipment to one side or the other of the television or radio.
• Move the equipment farther away from the television or radio.
• Plug the equipment into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or radio. (That is, make certain the equipment and the television or radio are on circuits
controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.)
Modifications to this product not authorized by Cisco Systems, Inc. could void the FCC approval and negate your authority to operate the product.

Product Overview
This chapter provides an overview of the features and components of the Catalyst 4500 E-series
switches. The Catalyst 4500 E-series switches are the Catalyst 4503-E switch, the Catalyst 4506-E
switch, the Catalyst 4507R-E switch, and the Catalyst 4510R-E switch. The information is presented in
these major sections:
•

•
Supervisor Engines, page 1-16
•
Fan Assembly, page 1-24
•
Power Supplies, page 1-25
•
System Architecture, page 1-31
Switch Features
The following sections describe the features of the Catalyst 4500 E-series switches:
•
Power Redundancy, page 1-1
•
Catalyst 4503-E Switch Features, page 1-2
•
Catalyst 4506-E Switch Features, page 1-5
•
Supervisor Engine Redundancy, page 1-8
•
Catalyst 4507R-E Switch Features, page 1-9
•
Catalyst 4510R-E Switch Features, page 1-13
Power Redundancy
All Catalyst 4500-E switches offer 1+1 power redundancy, so that in the event of a power interruption
the switch can still operate using power from another circuit. The power supplies can also run in a
combined mode so that chassis can have power from both supplies at once. You will need to use the
power redundancy-mode command to configure combined mode. Redundant mode is the default.
Catalyst 4500-E switches support power supply redundancy only between power supplies of equal
wattage and type. A mix of power supplies is not supported. The second power supply recognized is
placed into err-disable mode.

Power supplies
The Catalyst 4503-E switch supports the Supervisor Engine II+, Supervisor Engine II+TS, Supervisor
Engine II+10GE, Supervisor Engine IV, Supervisor Engine V, Supervisor Engine V-10GE, and
Supervisor Engine 6-E. The supervisor engine has a nonblocking, full-duplex, switching fabric that
provides connections between the supervisor engine and the switching modules. Some supervisor
engines use SFP modules for Gigabit Ethernet connections, or X2 modules for 10-Gigabit Ethernet
connections. Refer to the installation note for your supervisor engine for more details on these modules.
Slot 1 is reserved for the supervisor engine only, which provides switching, local and remote
management, and switch-status monitoring. Slots 2 and 3 are available for switching modules. The
chassis will support up to 24 Gbps per slot for slots 2 and 3, for a maximum of 116 ports with a
Supervisor Engine II+TS, or 96 ports and 2 uplinks for other supervisors.

Supervisor Engine Redundancy
The Catalyst 4507R-E and Catalyst 4510R-E switches support supervisor engine redundancy.
Redundancy allows a second supervisor engine to take over if the active supervisor engine fails.
With supervisor engine redundancy enabled, if the active supervisor engine fails or if a manual
switchover is performed, the redundant supervisor engine becomes the active supervisor engine. The
redundant supervisor engine is automatically initialized with the startup configuration of the active
supervisor engine. Depending on the configuration this shortens the switchover time from 30 seconds or
longer in Route Processor Redundancy (RPR) mode, to less than a second in Stateful Switch Over (SSO)
mode.
In addition to the reduced switchover time, supervisor engine redundancy supports these:
•
Online insertion and removal (OIR) of the redundant supervisor engine
Supervisor engine redundancy allows OIR of the redundant supervisor engine for maintenance.
When the redundant supervisor engine is inserted, the active supervisor engine detects it. The
redundant supervisor engine boots into a partially initialized state in RPR mode and a fully
initialized state in SSO mode.
•
Software upgrade
Load the new image on the redundant supervisor engine and conduct a switchover. This minimizes
downtime during software changes on the supervisor engine.
When power is first applied to a switch, the supervisor engine that boots first becomes the active
supervisor engine and remains active until a switchover occurs.
Redundancy requires that both supervisor engines in the chassis are of the same supervisor engine
model, and that they use the same Cisco IOS software image.
For more detail about redundancy, refer to the Configuring Supervisor Engine Redundancy Using RPR
and SSO chapter of the software configuration guide for your software release.

Gigabit Ethernet Uplink Ports
The Gigabit Ethernet uplink ports operate in full-duplex mode only. GBICs have SC connectors to
interface with multimode fiber (MMF) and single-mode fiber (SMF) cable. For more information about
GBICs, refer to the Catalyst 4500 Series Module Installation Guide. Frequently updated compatibility
information for GBICs, X2s, and SFPs are in documents at:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/modules/ps5455/products_device_support_tables_list.html
When two Supervisor Engine Vs are present in a Catalyst 4507R-E and Catalyst 4510R-E, all four
uplinks are active on both Primary (active) and Secondary (standby) supervisor engines by default, or
two uplinks are active in a non-redundant configuration. This limits access to slot 10 on the Catalyst
4510R to ports 3 and 4 only. You can only use the 2-port Gigabit Ethernet switching module
(WS-X4302-GB) in slot 10 (flex-slot) when a Supervisor Engine V is used.

Product Overview
Supervisor Engines
10-Gigabit Ethernet Uplink Ports
The 10-Gigabit Ethernet uplink ports operate in full-duplex mode only, and are only on the
WS-X4516-10GE, WS-X4013+10GE, and WS-45-Sup6-E. These ports use the hot-swappable
10GBASE X2 optical transceivers. The X2s have SC connectors to interface with multimode fiber
(MMF) and single-mode fiber (SMF) cable.
On a Catalyst 4510R-E with a Supervisor Engine V-10GE, the user can use either four Gigabit Ethernet
uplinks using SFPs or two 10-Gigabit Ethernet uplinks using X2s. The user also has the option of using
the Gigabit Ethernet and 10-Gigabit Ethernet uplinks simultaneously. With this option, the tenth slot can
only support the WS-X4302-GB switching module. On a Catalyst 4507R-E, the user can use the Gigabit
Ethernet uplinks and 10-Gigabit Ethernet uplinks simultaneously.
When two Supervisor Engine V-10GEs are present in a Catalyst 4510R-E or Catalyst 4507R-E switch,
or two Supervisor Engine II-Plus 10GEs are present in a Catalyst 4507R-E, one X2 uplink is active on
both the primary (active) and secondary (standby) supervisor engines by default, or two uplinks are
active in a non-redundant configuration.
On a Catalyst 4510R-E with a Supervisor Engine 6-E, 10-Gigabit Ethernet uplinks using X2s are the
only available uplinks. Slots 8-10 are intended for Catalyst 4500 classic switching modules only and all
other slots may use classic or E-series switching modules.
When two Supervisor Engine 6-Es are present in a Catalyst 4510R-E or Catalyst 4507R-E switch, or two
Supervisor Engine II-Plus 10GEs are present in a Catalyst 4507R-E, one X2 uplink is active on both the
primary (active) and secondary (standby) supervisor engines by default, or two uplinks are active in a
non-redundant configuration.
SFP Ports
Gigabit Ethernet SFP ports operate in full-duplex mode only and are present on the WS-X4013+TS,
WS-X4516-10GE, and WS-X4013+10GE supervisors, as well as some switching modules.
WS-X45-Sup6-E supervisors can use Cisco TwinGig converters to support two SFPs per X2 uplink port,
for a maximum of 4 SFP ports per supervisor. SFP connectors vary with interface type and may use
multimode fiber (MMF), single-mode fiber (SMF) cable, or copper Ethernet cables. SFPs use LC type
fiber connectors and RJ-45 copper connectors.
10/100BASE-T Management Port
The 10/100BASE-T Management port supports emergency image recovery. The 10/100BASE-T port
supports image downloads from the ROMMON. You can use this feature when the onboard Flash
memory does not contain any IOS images, usually after all images were accidentally deleted from
onboard Flash.
CONSOLE Port
The CONSOLE port has an EIA/TIA-232 RJ-45 connector. The CONSOLE port allows you to perform
the following functions:
•
Configure the switch from the CLI
•
Monitor network statistics and errors
•
Configure SNMP agent parameters

Fan Assembly
Note
For complete environmental specifications, including airflow requirements, see Appendix A,
“Specifications.”
The system fan assembly provides cooling air for the internal chassis components. The fan assembly is
a tray of fans that you can insert and remove from the chassis while the system is on line. The
Catalyst 4503-E fan assembly has two fans and the Catalyst 4506-E fan assembly has four fans, the
Catalyst 4507R-E fan assembly has eight fans, and the Catalyst 4510R-E fan assembly has ten fans. The
fans draw in fresh air from one side and exhaust air on the other side. Catalyst 4506-E airflow is shown
in Figure 1-12, the others in the series are the same direction.
Caution
You must install module filler plates on unused switching module slots to ensure proper airflow.

Power Supplies
Note
For detailed specifications on all Catalyst 4500 power supplies, refer to the “Catalyst 4507R-E Switch
Specifications” section on page A-3.
A Catalyst 4500 E-series switch can use a 1000 W, 1300 W, 1400 W, 2800 W (see Figure 1-13), or
4200 W (with two inputs, see Figure 1-14) AC-input power supply, a 1400 W DC-input power supply
with integrated PEM (see Figure 1-15), or a 1400 W DC multiple-input power supply (see Figure 1-16).
The power supplies are hot-swappable. If you have power supplies of different types installed in the two
bays, only one will be active and some power features will not be available. The power supply in the left
bay is PS1, the one in the right bay is PS2.
The AC-input power supply has a power cord that connects each power supply to the site power source.
The DC-input power supply is equipped with a input terminal block that is directly connected to the site
power wiring.
Each power supply has an ON/OFF switch that supplies power to the switch. For information on
removing and replacing power supplies, see the “Removing and Replacing the Power Supply” section
on page 4-2.

Figure 1-15
Note
The 1400 W DC triple-input power supply is not compatible with other power supplies used on these
products, and can only be used with similar supplies. In redundant mode, the two power supplies must
have identical inputs.
The 1400 W DC input power supply (either single or triple-input) may be used with the Catalyst 4500
Series AC Power Shelf. Documentation for the Catalyst 4500 Series AC Power Shelf is at
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst4500/hardware/configuration/notes/
78_15068.html
Catalyst 4500 E-series switches support one power supply and an optional redundant power supply. Each
AC power supply has an individual power cord and status LEDs. Systems with redundant power supplies
will share the load, with each unit providing approximately one-half of the total load. For information
about configuring your switch for redundant and combined modes, refer to the software configuration
guide for your switch.
The Catalyst 4510R-E requires at least 1400 W of input power. (The 1000 W AC and 1300 W AC power
supplies will fit and function in a Catalyst 4510R-E; however, power management may be required in high
density configurations.) Cisco recommends the use of the 1400 W DC, 1400 W AC, and 2800 W AC
power supplies for the Catalyst 4510R-E.
When power is removed from one power supply on a Catalyst 4500 E-series switch that has two power
supplies, the redundant power feature causes the second power supply to produce full power.
To replace a power supply, see the “Removing and Replacing the Power Supply” section on page 4-2.

Passthru breakers are enabled and input voltage exceeds
–60 V.
Power Supply Fan
Each power supply has a built-in fan. Air enters the front of the power supply (power-input end) and exits
through the back. An air dam keeps the airflow separate from the rest of the chassis, which is cooled by
the system fan assembly.
Load-Sharing Feature
When you install and turn on a second power supply on a Catalyst 4500 E-series switch, it provides
approximately one-half of the required power to the system. If one power supply fails, the other power
supply immediately assumes full power to maintain uninterrupted system operation.
Note
Load sharing works only when both power supplies in the chassis are the same type.

Product Overview
Power Supplies
When you install a redundant power supply, load sharing and fault tolerance are enabled automatically;
no additional software configuration is required.
Environmental Monitoring Feature
With the environmental monitoring and reporting feature, you can keep your system running by
resolving adverse environmental conditions before loss of operation.
The power supply monitors its own internal temperature and voltages. In the event of excessive internal
temperature, the power supply shuts down to prevent damage. When the power supply returns to a safe
operating temperature, it restarts. If the power supply output voltage is not within the specified range,
the LED labeled OUTPUT FAIL will light. An instance of substantial output overvoltage can shut down
the power supply.
An instance of substantial input over-voltage (greater than –75 V DC continuous) can damage the power
supply input circuitry and can cause it to shut down permanently.
For a 1400 W DC power supply, the main power switch has an input range of –40.5 to –72 V DC, while
the –48 V PoE operates over a range of –40.5 to –56 V DC. The PoE either fails to start or shuts down
if exposed to greater than –56 V DC input. PoE recovers after you recycle input power within the proper
voltage range. If the PoE shuts down due to input over-voltage (greater than –56 V DC), the main
converter section does not shut down.
The supervisor engine monitors the status of each power supply and provides a status report through the
switch software. For more details on how the supervisor engine monitors the power supplies, refer to the
“Environmental Monitoring and Power Management” chapter of the Catalyst 4500 Series Switch Cisco
IOS Software Configuration Guide.
1400 W DC Triple-input Power Supply Operational Modes
The 1400 W DC Triple Input SP Power Supply (data only) allows added redundancy by providing
terminals for two DC inputs rated at 15 A and one rated at 12.5 A per power supply.
This power supply has five operational modes depending on the inputs receiving power. When all three
inputs are active, at input voltages greater than –44.0 V DC, the power supply delivers 1400 W maximum
total output. Table 1-8 provides output information for these modes, given a single supply.

Power enters the switch through the power supplies. Several types of power supplies are available,
depending on the power needs for your system and the power type available on your site. All power
supplies provide a 3.3 V circuit (shown as a dash-dot line) to the components on the backplane and a
12 V circuit (shown as a solid line) that is carried over the backplane to the fans, supervisor engine, and
switching modules. Power supplies that support PoE (1300 W AC, 2800 W AC, 4200 W AC or 1400 W
DC) also provide a –48 V circuit (shown as a dashed line) to PoE-enabled switching modules, which is
then available to the powered device connected to the switching module.
Note
The Supervisor Engine II-Plus TS has internal DC-to-DC converters that use the 12 V circuit to provide
PoE to powered devices connected to the Supervisor engine only. If your system has a Supervisor Engine
II-Plus TS in slot 1, you still need a PoE-enabled power supply to provide PoE to the other slots.
All Catalyst 4500 E-series switches support dual power supplies, configurable for combined mode or
redundant mode. In combined mode, the switch has available the combined rated wattage of both power
supplies, less some expected efficiency loss. In redundant mode, one power supply provides power to
the system and the other supply is on standby should there be a failure in either the power supply or the
input voltage source it is connected to.
Power over Ethernet
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-series switches support the 802.3af standard for PoE on 10/100 or
10/100/1000 ports, enabling customers to support telephones, wireless base stations, video cameras, and
other appliances. PoE makes it possible to place devices in unique locations without having to provide

Product Overview
System Architecture
new outlets and costly electrical circuits. PoE also enables businesses to isolate critical devices on a
single power system so that the entire system can be supported by uninterruptable power supply (UPS)
backup.
All new Cisco Catalyst PoE switching modules can support 15.4 W of power per port simultaneously.
Not only do the modules support the IEEE standard, including the optional power classifications, but the
Cisco pre-standard power implementation is also supported to help ensure backward compatibility with
existing Cisco powered devices. The modules are compatible with any chassis and supervisor engine.
Most importantly, the Catalyst 4500 E-series switch has the power supplies and accessories to support
15.4 W per port on every port simultaneously in any fully loaded chassis. (This requires an external power
shelf or a 4200 W dual-input power supply.)
PoE Over-subscription
With the advent of powered devices requiring as much as 15.4 W and the different combinations of
power supplies and chassis port densities, it becomes quite possible to over-subscribe the PoE capacity
of the power supplies. This temporary over-subscription typically occurs when a power supply
configured in combined mode fails or when the user has not kept track of the powered devices and plugs
in one too many. The best practice is to design a PoE system in which all devices receive the power
needed at all times. When a power supply is over-subscribed—more power is being drawn from it than
it can supply—the power supply shuts down. There are several ways to predictably manage a temporary
PoE over-subscription:
1.
Configure unused ports to never receive PoE. This prevents a user from inadvertently plugging a
powered device into a port and causing problems for other powered devices.
2.
Configure ports to be in static mode. This is for ports that have highest priority, such as phones for
executives or wireless access points. If ports need to be disabled because of a power shortage, auto
ports are disabled before static ports.
3.
Configure the maximum wattage on ports to be less than the default, based on the maximum power
consumption of the powered device. This disallows devices demanding unexpected amounts of
power and also stretches the finite resources of the power supplies. For example, the default port
wattage is 15.4 W. By configuring a maximum of 7 W, twice as many PoE powered devices can be
supported with the same power supply.
PoE Switching Modules
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-series offers switching modules, power supplies, and accessories required to
deploy and operate a standards-based PoE internetwork. PoE provides –48 V DC power over standard
Category 5 unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cable up to 100 meters when an IEEE 802.3af-compliant or
Cisco pre-standard powered device is attached to the PoE switching module port. Instead of requiring
wall power, attached devices such as IP phones, wireless base stations, video cameras, and other
IEEE-compliant appliances can use power provided by the PoE switching modules. This capability gives
network administrators centralized control over power and eliminates the need to install outlets in
ceilings and other out-of-the-way places where a powered device may be installed.
Although references to “PoE,” “inline-power,” and “voice” power supplies and switching modules are
synonymous, there are only two versions: Cisco prestandard and IEEE 802.3af compliant. Every Cisco
Catalyst 4500 E-series chassis and PoE power supply supports the IEEE 802.3af standard and the Cisco
prestandard power implementation ensuring backward compatibility with existing Cisco powered
devices. All IEEE 802.3af-compliant switching modules can distinguish an IEEE or Cisco prestandard
powered device from an unpowered network interface card (NIC), ensuring that power is applied only
when an appropriate device is connected.

Chapter 1
Product Overview
System Architecture
All PoE switching modules can distinguish an IEEE or Cisco prestandard powered device from an
unpowered network interface card (NIC) to ensure power is applied only when an appropriate device is
connected. With a Cisco PoE network, administrators can depend on a robust network that is safe to
deploy and simple to maintain.
Deploying PoE on the Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-series
When the switch is properly configured, implementing PoE is easy when it is used with a Cisco powered
device that supports Cisco Discovery Protocol. All PoE switching modules automatically detect an
attached powered device the moment it is installed. Also, the switch returns unused port power to the
system power budget for use by other devices because it supports the IEEE802.3af optional power
classifications.
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-series offers internal power supplies and external power devices for multiple
deployment scenarios. These scenarios include small and large deployments in AC or DC environments
for data-only configurations, and scalability of up to 15.4 W per port for PoE configurations.
The switches share a common power supply form factor. Each Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-series chassis is
designed for 1 + 1 power protection while meeting the needs of PoE demands. In addition to power
resiliency, the Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-series includes 1 + 1 supervisor-engine redundancy (Cisco Catalyst
4507R-E and Catalyst 4510R-E only) and software-based fault tolerance. Integrated resiliency in both
hardware and software minimizes network downtime, helping ensure workforce productivity, portability,
and customer success.
All available Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-series compatible power supplies can be used for data-only
deployments, which typically require just a few hundred watts. For deployments that dictate support for
PoE power, Cisco offers several options.
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-series offers several internal supplies: 1000 W AC (data only), 1400 W AC
(data only), 1300 W (data and PoE), 1400 W DC (data and PoE), 2800 W (data and PoE), and 4200 W
AC (data and PoE). When more than 4200 W of redundant data and PoE are required for a Cisco Catalyst
4500 E-series chassis in an AC-powered environment, Cisco offers an external AC power shelf that
houses two 2500 W AC power supplies. When two power shelves are combined, they can produce
7500 W—the remaining 2500 W supply can be used for N + 1 protection.
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-series has two DC power options; one is optimized for data-only deployments
in service provider central offices (part number PWR-C45-1400DC), and the other is used for
high-power PoE deployments (part number PWR-C45-1400DC-P).
Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series External AC Power Shelf and
1400 W DC Power Supply with Integrated Power Entry Module
The external AC power shelf must be used in conjunction with the 1400 W DC power supply. In addition
to providing power for the chassis, fans, and non-PoE switching modules, the 1400 W DC power supply
contains a power entry module (PEM). The PEM is used to pass additional power to the chassis
backplane, power demanded by the PoE switching modules. The chassis power trace used for PoE is
independent from the one used by the supervisor engine(s), fan tray, and backplane components. The
1400 W DC power supply can accept up to 7500 W DC for data and PoE applications. Up to 1400 W can
be dedicated for data (supervisor engine, fan tray, etc.), while the remaining power is passed through via
the PEM and is used for PoE.
When only one external AC power shelf is used (with two 2500 W AC power supplies), it provides the
1400 W DC power supply with 5000 W of DC power in total. When two AC power shelves are strapped
together, the switch can provide up to 7500 W of DC power (3 + 1 redundant).

Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Service Provider DC Power Supply
The triple-input 1400 W DC power supply is optimized for service provider or central-office
deployments. By providing multiple inputs, the service provider DC power supply enables central-office
technicians to customize the output power to meet their application needs. Many central-office
deployments require only a fraction of the 1400 W available in the service provider power supply. Low
current inputs mean technicians can connect the supply to smaller fuses and breakers. The service
provider power supply makes it possible to deploy a Cisco Catalyst 4503-E with a single 15 A circuit.
Likewise, it is possible to deploy a fully populated Cisco Catalyst 4510R-E with two 20 A and one 15 A
circuits rather than a single 60 A connection, which often requires rack rewiring.

which makes it available to an administrator through a terminal connection or management software.
All Catalyst 4500 E-series switches support:
•
Cisco Group Management Protocol, for standards-based and Cisco technology-enhanced efficient
multimedia networking.
•
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
•
CiscoWorks, which can manage critical network characteristics such as availability, responsiveness,

Switching Traffic Flow
All Catalyst 4500 series switches use a shared memory switching fabric. All forwarding decisions, QoS,
security policies and transmit queuing are implemented in the Supervisor Engine. Individual switching
modules are transparent, and only contain simple stub ASICs and PHYs; they do not perform buffering
or local switching. Classic switching modules and Classic IOS supervisor engines have a per slot
switching capacity of 6 Gbps, while E-series switching modules and supervisor engines have a per slot
switching capacity of 24 Gbps.
Frames flow into the switch through interfaces on the switching modules. Each switching module
connects to a backplane that supports a connection of up to 24 Gbps up to the supervisor engine. When
a frame reaches the supervisor engine, and a forwarding decision is made, the packet is sent out a port
on the same switching module, a different switching module, or the supervisor engine uplinks.
Figure 1-19 shows a conceptual diagram of switching traffic flow through the system.

Over-subscription
Classic Catalyst 4500 Series 48 port 10/100/1000 E-Series Switching modules are 8:1 oversubscribed
and Catalyst 4500 E-Series 48 port 10/100/1000 Switching modules are 2:1 oversubscribed. On both
types of switching modules, there are multiplexing ASIC's which group the front panel ports and
multiplex them to the internal switch fabric. On a 48 port 10/100/1000 Classic Catalyst 4500 Series
switching module, eight front panel ports are multiplexed into a a single, nonblocking, full-duplex
Gigabit Ethernet connection to the internal switch fabric of the Catalyst 4500 Classic Supervisors or the
Supervisor 6-E. On the Catalyst 4500 E-series 48 port 10/100/1000 switching modules, six front panel
ports are multiplexed into a 3 gigabit nonblocking, full-duplex Ethernet connection to the internal switch
fabric on the Supervisor Engine 6-E.
If the data rate received for a port presents a potential overflow condition, flow control sends pause
frames to the remote port to temporarily stop traffic and prevent frame loss. For both Classic and E-series
switching modules each port operates independently so that flow control, or configuration of one port,
does not block or degrade the performance of another port in that group.
The 6 port 2.5:1 oversubscribed 10GbE X2 based switching module operates in a similar way. The six
front panel ports are multiplexed by groups of three into two ASICS, each having a 12 gigabit connection
into the internal switch fabric.

System Architecture
In a Catalyst 4500 E-series chassis with the Supervisor 6-E, there is no performance degradation when
both Classic and E-series line cards are mixed within the chassis. The Classic switching modules will
continue to operate at 6 gigabits per slot and the E-series switching modules will operate at 24 gigabits
per slot.
Supervisor Redundancy
The Cisco Catalyst 4507R-E and Catalyst 4510R-E switches support 1+1 supervisor-engine redundancy
for integrated resiliency. Redundant supervisor engines help minimize network downtime. With the
support of stateful switchover (SSO), the secondary supervisor engine serves as a backup to immediately
take over after a primary supervisor failure. During the switchover, Layer 2 links are maintained
transparently without the need to renegotiate sessions. As a result, business-critical applications such as
Voice-over-IP (VoIP) calls are not dropped. The Nonstop Forwarding (NSF) Aware feature in Cisco IOS
software is also supported, providing the ability to interface with NSF-capable devices and to continue
forwarding packets as routing information is updated upon a supervisor-engine switchover.

Preparing for Installation
Electrostatic Discharge
Note
See the Site-Planning Checklist at the end of this chapter to help ensure that you complete all
site-planning activities before you install the switch.
Electrostatic Discharge
Electrostatic discharge is common on Category 5E and Category 6 cabling systems.
Category 5E and Category 6 cables have higher capacitance than Category 5 cables. As a result, Category
5E and Category 6 cables can store higher voltages than Category 5 cables and are more prone to
damaging networking equipment if a differential discharge event occurs.
Unshielded twisted-pair cables can store high voltages. When these charged cables are connected to
networking equipment, energy is discharged into the networking equipment; this is known as
electrostatic discharge (ESD). Networking equipment is commonly designed and tested to withstand
common mode ESD events of up to 2000 V. The design for the common mode event is based on the
expectation that the discharge is delivered to all pins of a port at once. Sometimes, voltage is discharged
to some of the pins of the connector and not others, or to some pins on the connector before others. This
is known as a differential discharge event, which can damage the networking equipment being
connected.
You can take the following measures to prevent ESD cable damage:
•
Ground the cable before connecting the networking equipment. You can create a grounding cable
using an RJ-45 patch cable by doing the following:
– Bare the wires on one end
– Connect the wires to a suitable and safe earth ground
– Connect the RJ-45 cable to a female RJ-45 connector
•
Briefly connect all cables to the grounded cable before connecting to networking equipment.
•
Leave cables from the networking equipment in the distribution closet connected to ports at user
desktops. After you make connections on either side of the cable to networking equipment, the cable
will not build up charge.
Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage, which can occur when electronic cards or components are
improperly handled, results in complete or intermittent failures. Port adapters and processor modules
consist of printed circuit boards that are fixed in metal carriers. Electromagnetic interference (EMI)
shielding and connectors are integral components of the carrier. Although the metal carrier helps to
protect the board from ESD, use a preventive antistatic strap during handling.
Following are guidelines for preventing ESD damage:
•
Always use an ESD wrist or ankle strap and ensure that it makes good skin contact.
•
Connect the equipment end of the strap to an unfinished chassis surface.
•
When installing a component, use any available ejector levers or captive installation screws to
properly seat the bus connectors in the backplane or midplane. These devices prevent accidental
removal, provide proper grounding for the system, and help to ensure that bus connectors are
properly seated.

Chapter 2
Preparing for Installation
Site Power Requirements and Heat Dissipation
Caution
•
When removing a component, use any available ejector levers or captive installation screws to
release the bus connectors from the backplane or midplane.
•
Handle carriers by available handles or edges only; avoid touching the printed circuit boards or
connectors.
•
Place a removed component board-side-up on an antistatic surface or in a static shielding container.
If you plan to return the component to the factory, immediately place it in a static shielding
container.
•
Avoid contact between the printed circuit boards and clothing. The wrist strap only protects
components from ESD voltages on the body; ESD voltages on clothing can still cause damage.
•
Never attempt to remove the printed circuit board from the metal carrier.
For safety, periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap. The measurement should be
between 1 and 10 megohm (Mohm).
Site Power Requirements and Heat Dissipation
This section provides module power requirements and heat dissipation specifications for the
Catalyst 4500 E-series switches. You should verify site power before you install the switch.
For more information about power management and planning, refer to the “Environmental Monitoring
and Power Management” chapter in the Catalyst 4500 Series Switch Cisco IOS Software Configuration
Guide version appropriate for your software.
Knowing the power requirements is useful for planning the power distribution system needed to support
the switches. You should consider the heat dissipation specifications when estimating the
air-conditioning requirements for an installation. For all Catalyst 4500 series switches, supervisor

Power Connection Guidelines for AC-Powered Systems
This section provides guidelines for connecting the Catalyst 4500 E-series switch AC power supplies to
the site power source. Basic guidelines include the following:
•
Make sure each chassis power supply has its own dedicated branch circuit.
•
Size the circuits according to local and national codes.
•
If you are using a 200/240 VAC power source in North America, use a two-pole circuit breaker to
protect the circuit.
•
Place the source AC outlet within 6 feet (1.8 meters) of the system and make sure it is easily
accessible.

•
Make sure the AC power receptacles used to plug in the chassis are the grounding type. The
grounding conductors that connect to the receptacles should connect to protective earth ground at
the service equipment.
Four types of AC-input power supplies are available:
•
1000 W—Table 2-1 lists the AC-input power cord options, specifications, Cisco part numbers, and
shows the different styles of 1000 W AC-input power cord wall plugs that are available for North
America and international locations as well as the appliance coupler that is attached to the power
supply end of the power cord.
•
1300 W—Table 2-1 lists the AC-input power cord options, specifications, and Cisco product
numbers, and shows the different styles of 1300 W AC-input power cord wall plugs that are
available for North America or various international locations as well as the appliance coupler that
is attached to the power supply end of the power cord.
Note
For North America, the power cord plug types and appliance couplers on the power supplies
are different for the 1000 W power supplies and the 1300 W power supplies; for other
countries, the plugs shown are the same for the 1000 W and 1300 W power supplies.
•
1400 W—Table 2-1 lists the AC-input power cord options, specifications, and Cisco product
numbers, and shows the different styles of 1400 W AC-input power cord wall plugs that are
available for North America or various international locations as well as the appliance coupler that
is attached to the power supply end of the power cord.
•
2800 W—Table 2-1 lists the AC-input power cord options, specifications, and Cisco part numbers,
and shows the different styles of 2800 W AC-input power cord wall plugs that are available for
North America and international locations as well as the appliance coupler that is attached to the
other end of the 2800 W power supply power cord.
•
4200 W—Table 2-1 lists the AC-input power cord options, specifications, and Cisco part numbers,
and shows the different styles of 4200 W AC-input power cord wall plugs that are available for
North America and international locations as well as the appliance coupler that is attached to the
other end of the 4200 W power supply power cord.
The cable part numbers use standard conventions as shown in this example: CAB-L620P-C19-US.
CAB-L means the cable will lock to the outlet. 620P means the cable is intended for a NEMA 220V 20
AMP circuit connection. C19 refers to the appliance side connector shape, rated for 20 Amps. US is the
country the cable is intended for use in.

Power Connection Guidelines for DC-Powered Systems
Power Connection Guidelines for DC-Powered Systems
This section provides the basic guidelines for connecting the Catalyst 4500 E-series switch compatible
DC-input power supplies to the site power source or AC power shelf:
•
All power connection wiring should conform to local and national codes.
•
DC (–) and DC return (+) terminals are evaluated for use with 1/0 AWG wire (1400W DC supply
only).
•
The ground terminal is evaluated for use with 6 AWG wire (10 AWG for the multi-input power
supply).
•
DC (–) and DC return (+) wire lugs shall not exceed 0.83 inches in width (0.378 inches for the
multi-input power supply).
•
For DC power cables, we recommend that you use commensurately rated, high-strand-count copper
wire cable. Connection to the DC-input power supply requires one earth ground cable, one source
DC (–), and one source DC return (+). The length of the cables depends on your switch location.
These cables are not available from Cisco Systems. They are available from any commercial cable
vendor.
•
The color coding of the source DC power cable leads depends on the color coding of the site DC
power source. Typically, green or green and yellow indicate that the cable is a ground cable. Because
there is no color code standard for source DC wiring, you must ensure that the power cables are
connected to the DC-input power supply terminal block in the proper (+) and (–) polarity. In some
cases, the source DC cable leads might have a positive (+) or a negative (–) label. This label is a
relatively safe indication of the polarity, but you must verify the polarity by measuring the voltage
between the DC cable leads. When making the measurement, the positive (+) lead and the negative
(–) lead must always match the (+) and (–) labels on the DC-input power supply terminal block.
Calculating DC Input Current
Complete power usage tables are in the Catalyst 4500 Series Module Installation Guide. To calculate the
DC input current needed for data and inline power applications, use the following steps (the example
shows the DC input current requirement in a Catalyst 4503-E with a Supervisor Engine II and two
WS-X4306-GB modules, and assumes a DC input voltage of -48 VDC):
Step 1
Step 2
Add the power requirement for each component in your system.
•
Catalyst 4503-E uses 54 W
•
Supervisor Engine II+ uses 147 W
•
WS-X4306-GB uses 2 X 47 = 94 W
•
Total DC input power = 295 W
After the entries for all components have been added together, divide that number by the DC input
voltage to determine the DC input current.
•
Input current = 295 W/48 VDC = 6.14 A for data only.
Step 3 to Step 5 are for applications requiring inline power. If your configuration does not include inline
power devices, the DC input current is the result of Step 2.
Step 3
If you want to add an inline-capable module (WS-X4148-RJ45V) with 10 inline devices (such as IP
Phones) to your system, calculate the DC output power sent to inline devices.
Catalyst 4500 E-Series Switches Installation Guide
OL-13972-01

Chapter 2
Preparing for Installation
Ventilation
•
10 X 6.3 W = 63 W for inline devices.
6.3 Watts is correct for a Cisco IP phone. Wattage consumption will depend on the inline device used.
Step 4
Find the DC input power using the DC output power.
•
Step 5
Divide the DC input power by the DC voltage input of –48 V to find the DC input current used by inline
devices.
•
Step 6
63/.96 (efficiency) = 65 W of DC input power.
65/48 = 1.4 Amps for inline devices.
Add the DC input current used by data and the DC input current used by inline devices to find the total
DC input current.
•
Total DC input current = 6.14 + 1.4 = 7.54 A.
Ventilation
Planning a proper location for the switch and the layout of your equipment rack or wiring closet is
essential for successful system operation. You should install the switch in an enclosed, secure area,
ensuring that only qualified personnel have access to the switch and control of the environment.
Equipment placed too close together or inadequately ventilated can cause system overtemperature
conditions. In addition, poor equipment placement can make chassis panels inaccessible and difficult to
maintain.
The switch operates as a standalone system mounted in a rack in a secure wiring closet. It requires a dry,
clean, well-ventilated, and air-conditioned environment. To ensure normal operation, maintain ambient
airflow. If the airflow is blocked or restricted, or if the intake air is too warm, an overtemperature
condition can occur. The switch environmental monitor can then shut down the system to protect the
system components.
To ensure normal operation and avoid unnecessary maintenance, plan your site configuration and
prepare your site before installation. After installation, make sure the site maintains an ambient
temperature of 0 to 40ºC (32 to 104ºF). It is essential to keep the area around the chassis as free from
dust and foreign conductive material (such as metal flakes from nearby construction activity) as is
possible.
Multiple switches can be rack-mounted with little or no clearance above and below the chassis. However,
when mounting a switch in a rack with other equipment, or when placing it on the floor near other
equipment, ensure that the exhaust from other equipment does not blow into the intake vent of the
chassis.
Cooling air is drawn in through the right side of the chassis. Keep the right side clear of obstructions,
including dust and foreign conductive material, and away from the exhaust ports of other equipment.
Appendix A, “Specifications,” lists the operating and nonoperating environmental site requirements for
the switches. To maintain normal operation and ensure high system availability, maintain an ambient
temperature and clean power at your site. The environmental ranges listed in Appendix A,
“Specifications,” are those within which the switch will continue to operate; however, a measurement
that approaches the minimum or maximum of a range indicates a potential problem. You can maintain
normal operation by anticipating and correcting environmental anomalies before they exceed the
maximum operating range.

Site-Planning Checklist
Calculating System Heat Dissipation
To calculate the expected heat dissipation from a switch, add the total amount of power drawn from
power supply by the system's configuration, then divide the total amount of power by the efficiency of
the power supply. Multiply the result by 3.415 to get the system heat dissipation in BTUs/hr.
First example (System without any powered devices):
Components
Output Power
1 - Catalyst 4506-E with fans
50 W
1 - Supervisor Engine IV
145 W
1 - WS-X4248-RJ45V with no phones 72 W
total output power
267 W
Total heat dissipated by system = (267/.75) * 3.415 = 1215 BTUs/hr
Note
All power supplies have different efficiencies, An average efficiency figure of 75% was chosen.
Second example (same system but this time with one IEEE class 3 device):
Components
Output Power
1 - Catalyst 4506-E with fans
50 W
1 - Supervisor Engine IV
145 W
1 - WS-X4248-RJ45V with no phones 72 W
1 - IEEE class 3 device
total output power
17.3 W
284 W
Total heat dissipated by system = (284/.75) * 3.415 = 1293 BTUs/hr
Note
Although a class 3 device needs 15.4 W to power up, 17.3 W need to be generated from the backplane
in order to have 15.4 W at the switch port. 17.3 W comes from the WS-X4248-RJ45V DC-DC
converter’s efficiency (89%).

Note
To prevent bodily injury when mounting or servicing this unit in a rack, you must take special
precautions to ensure that the system remains stable. The following guidelines are provided to
ensure your safety:
•
This unit should be mounted at the bottom of the rack if it is the only unit in the rack.
•
When mounting this unit in a partially filled rack, load the rack from the bottom to the top with the heaviest
component at the bottom of the rack.
•
If the rack is provided with stabilizing devices, install the stabilizers before mounting or servicing the unit in
the rack. Statement 1006
If you move a supervisor engine from a Catalyst 4500 series chassis to a Catalyst 4503-E chassis or
Catalyst 4506-E chassis, it must use Cisco IOS Release 12.2(37)SG or later. Refer to the release note for
software upgrade procedures if needed:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst4500/release/note/OL_5184.html#wp305142
Follow these steps to install a Catalyst 4500 E-series switch in a rack:
Step 1
Prepare for installation as follows:
a.
Place the chassis on the floor or on a sturdy table as close as possible to the rack. Leave enough
clearance to allow you to move around the chassis.
b.
Use a tape measure to measure the depth of the rack. Measure from the outside of the front mounting
posts to the outside of the rear mounting strip. The depth must be at least 19.25 inches (48.9 cm) but
not greater than 32 inches (81.3 cm).
c.
Measure the space between the inner edges of the left front and right front mounting posts to ensure
that it is 17.75 inches (45.09 cm) wide. (The chassis is 17.25 inches [43.8 cm] wide and must fit
between the mounting posts.)
Note
d.
Some equipment racks provide a power strip along the length of one of the rear posts. If your
rack has this feature, consider the position of the strip when planning fastener points. Before
installing the L brackets on the chassis, determine whether to install the chassis from the front
or the rear of the rack.
Attach the cable guide, if needed, using the M3 screws provided in the cable management kit. The
cable guide attaches to the L bracket. Attach the cable guide to the right side of the switch to prevent
the cables from obscuring module LEDs.

Parts and Required Tools
Note
Some parts and required tools described in this section are not available from Cisco Systems. The
grounding lug and associated screws are included with the accessory kit.
To make an adequate grounding connection, you will need the following parts and tools:
•
Grounding lug—The grounding lug has two #10 AWG holes spaced 0.63 in center to center. A
Panduit LCDX6-10A-L or Pencom EL1033 lug may be used if the lug from the accessory kit has
been misplaced.
•
Two M4 (metric) hex-head screws.
•
One grounding wire (6 AWG recommended)—The length of the grounding wires depends on the
location of your switch within the site and its proximity to proper grounding facilities.
•
Number 2 Phillips screwdriver.
•
Crimping tool—This tool must be large enough to accommodate the girth of the grounding lug when
you crimp the grounding cable into the lug.
•
Wire-stripping tool.
Connecting System Ground and Power
This section describes how to connect the Catalyst 4500 E-series switches to earth ground. The system
ground connection is required if FXS modules are installed or if this equipment is installed in a US or
European Central Office.You must complete this procedure before connecting system power or turning
on your switch.
To attach the grounding lug and cable to the grounding pad on your Catalyst 4500 E-series switch,
perform the following steps:
Step 1
Using a wire-stripping tool, remove approximately 0.75 inches (19 mm) of the covering from the end of
the grounding wire.
Step 2
Insert the stripped end of the grounding wire into the open end of the grounding lug (Figure 3-3).
Step 3
Using a crimping tool, secure the grounding wire in place in the grounding lug.
Step 4
Locate the grounding pad on the switch. (See Figure 3-3).

Place the grounding lug against the grounding pad, aligning the holes. Insert the two M4 screws through
the holes in the grounding lug and grounding pad.
Ensure that the grounding lug and the attached wire will not interfere with other switch hardware or rack
equipment.
Step 7
Tighten the screws to secure the grounding lug to the grounding pad.
Step 8
Repeat steps 1 through 3 to prepare the other end of the grounding wire and connect it to an appropriate
grounding point at your site to ensure adequate earth ground for the switch.
Step 9
Connect the power supply cords. DC power supplies will have a separate ground connection, both
chassis and power supply grounds are needed for the system.The switch comes on when the cords are
connected and the power supply on/off switch is on.
Note
This equipment is suitable for connection to intra-building wiring only.
Note
If you are using a DC power supply, the DC return connection to this system should remain
isolated from the system frame and chassis (DC-I).
This completes the installation of the Catalyst 4500 E-series switches.

Replacing Backplane Modules
Verifying the Installation
Note
To check the operation of the fans, you need to power up the chassis.
Follow these steps to verify that the new fan assembly was installed correctly:
Step 1
Listen for the fans; you should immediately hear them operating. If you do not hear them, ensure that
the fan assembly is inserted completely in the chassis and that the faceplate is flush with the switch back
panel.
Step 2
The fan tray LED should light and be green.
Step 3
If after several attempts the fans do not operate, or if you experience trouble with the installation (for
instance, if the captive installation screws do not align with the chassis holes), contact the Cisco TAC
for assistance.
Replacing Backplane Modules
There are 5 redundancy modules (also called mux buffers) and 1 clock module on a Catalyst 4507R-E
chassis backplane. A Catalyst 4510R-E has 8 redundancy modules on its backplane. They are accessible
from the front if the switching modules and supervisor engines are removed. There are two types of
redundancy modules, and they are interchangeable.
The clock module replacement procedure is identical to the redundancy module replacement procedure,
the connectors are the same. These modules are not hot-swappable, the switch must be taken out of
service to replace them.
To replace the backplane modules:
Step 1
Make sure you are grounded with an ESD strap.
Step 2
Turn off the power to the chassis.
Step 3
Remove all supervisor engines and switching modules from the chassis, and find the backplane modules
you need to replace.
Note
Keep a record of switching module and their slots, so that you can put them back correctly.
Note
Generic switching module replacement procedures are documented at:

removal.
Step 13
Replace the supervisor engines and switching modules to their previous slots.
Step 14
Restore power to the switch.
Verify the New Modules
After the switch is reassembled and power is restored, connect a terminal to the supervisor engine and
monitor the boot process. Look for the following messages (or any others), which may indicate a
problem with the replaced modules:
00:00:20: %C4K_SUPERVISOR-2-MUXBUFFERNOTPRESENT: Mux buffer (WS-X4K-MUX) 3 is not present
00:00:20: %C4K_SUPERVISOR-2-MUXBUFFERNOTPRESENT: Mux buffer (WS-X4K-MUX) 4 is not present
00:00:20: %C4K_SUPERVISOR-2-MUXBUFFERNOTPRESENT: Mux buffer (WS-X4K-MUX) 7 is not present
The above messages (either at startup or output from a show logging command) indicate that the
mux-buffer is not present in slots 3, 4 and 7. You need to reinsert and reseat the modules in those slots.
If the switch has already started up, you may also verify the correct function of the new modules with
the show logging command.

Engine 6-E:
•
Number 2 Phillips screwdriver
•
Small flat-blade screwdriver
•
ESD-preventive wrist strap
•
Antistatic mat
Removing Memory
You will not need to remove the base memory to perform a memory upgrade, but it may make installing
the new memory easier. This procedure presumes you have already removed the supervisor engine from
the switch. To remove an SDRAM miniDIMM:
Step 1
Attach an ESD-preventive wrist strap and ensure that it makes good contact with your skin. Connect the
equipment end of the wrist strap to the metal back plate of the chassis, avoiding contact with the
connectors.
Step 2
On the mainboard, locate the SDRAM miniDIMM sockets. (See Figure 4-25.)

Troubleshooting
If your system has problems during start up or operation, use the information in this chapter to help
isolate the cause. Problems with the initial startup are often caused by a switching module that has
become dislodged from the backplane or a power cord that is disconnected from the power supply.
Although temperature conditions above the maximum acceptable level rarely occur at initial startup,
some environmental monitoring functions are included in this chapter because they also monitor power
supply output voltages.
Information about troubleshooting software features and configuration problems is not discussed in this
chapter.
More up to date information can be found in the release notes or Error Message Decoder tool.
Information specific to your software release can be found in the software configuration guide for that

for your software release.
System Boot Verification
When the initial system boot is complete, verify the following:
•
That the system software boots successfully
Hook up a terminal and view the startup banner. Use an RJ-45-to-RJ-45 rollover cable to connect
the console port to a PC with terminal emulation software set for 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity,
and 1 stop bit. Watch for any system messages after startup.
•
That the power supplies are supplying power to the system
The power supply’s LEDs should be green. Use the show environment Cisco IOS command to view
power supply activity.
•
That the system fan assembly is operating
Listen for fan activity. The Fan tray LED should be green during operation. Use the show
environment Cisco IOS command to view fan tray activity.
•
That the supervisor engine and all switching modules are installed properly in their slots, and that
each initialized without problems
If all of these conditions are met and the hardware installation is complete, refer to the software
configuration guide and command reference publications for your switch so that you can troubleshoot
the software.
If any of these conditions is not met, use the procedures in this chapter to isolate and, if possible, resolve
the problem.
Using LEDs to Identify Startup Problems
The key to success when troubleshooting the system is to isolate the problem to a specific system
component. Your first step is to compare what the system is doing to what it should be doing. All system
states in the startup sequence are indicated by LEDs. By checking the LEDs, you can determine when
Catalyst 4500 E-Series Switches Installation Guide
5-2
OL-13972-01
Chapter 5
Troubleshooting
Using LEDs to Identify Startup Problems
and where the system failed in the startup sequence. If you have problems after the switch is on, refer to
the following subsystem troubleshooting information and the configuration procedures in the software
configuration guide for your switch.
After you connect the power cords to your Catalyst 4500 series switch, follow these steps to determine
whether your system is operating properly:
Step 1
Check the power supply LEDs:
•
The LED labeled GOOD should turn green when power is applied to the supply. The LED should
remain on during normal system operation.
•
If the LED labeled GOOD does not light, or if the LED labeled FAIL lights, see the
“Troubleshooting the Power Supply” section on page 5-4.
Note
If a power supply is installed and not connected to a power source, power supply LEDs indicate
a failure.
Step 2
Listen for the system fan assembly. The system fan assembly should be operating whenever system
power is on. If you do not hear it when the switch is on, see the “Troubleshooting the Fan Assembly”
section on page 5-6.
Step 3
Check that the LEDs on the supervisor engine light as follows:
•
The LED labeled STATUS flashes orange once and stays orange during diagnostic boot tests.
– It turns green when the module is operational (online).
– If the system software is unable to start up, this LED stays orange.
– If the LED labeled STATUS on the supervisor engine front panel is red or orange, connect a
console to the management port and use the show environment command to check for possible
problems.
•
The Ethernet management port LED turns green when the module is operational (online) and a link
is established with another network device. If no signal is detected, the LED labeled LINK turns off.
If there is a problem with the supervisor engine, try reseating the supervisor engine in the chassis
and restarting the switch. For more information about LED meanings, refer to the “LEDs” section
on page 1-22. For more troubleshooting information, see the “Troubleshooting Supervisor Engines”
section on page 5-10.
Step 4
Verify that the LEDs labeled STATUS on each switching module are green when the supervisor engine
completes initialization.
This LED indicates that the supervisor engine and switching modules are receiving power, have been
recognized by the supervisor engine, and contain a valid Flash code version. However, this LED does
not indicate the state of the individual interfaces on the switching modules. If an LED labeled STATUS
is red or orange, try reseating the switching module or supervisor engine and restarting the switch. For
more information, see the “Troubleshooting Switching Modules” section on page 5-8. If you determine
that the switching module is not operating, contact Cisco TAC as described in the “Some Problems and
Solutions” section on page 5-14.
Step 5
If the boot information and system banner are not displayed, verify that the terminal is set for 9600 baud,
8 data bits, no parity, and 1 stop bit and connected properly to the console port.

System Messages
System messages appear on the console if you have enabled console logging or appear in the syslog if
you have enabled syslog. Many messages are for informational purposes only and do not indicate an
error condition. Enter the show logging command to display the log messages. To better understand a
specific system message, refer to the system message guide for your software release. Most messages
are also documented in the Error Message Decoder tool at:

System messages specific to the system components are mentioned in the corresponding sections that
follow. If you see one of these messages, use the Decoder tool and follow the suggestion provided there.
Troubleshooting with Software
Many problems can be identified with CLI commands, and following sections will mention them as
appropriate.
Certain problems can be due to not having the right software to support your hardware. For the most
recent software release to get the current recommended version for a particular system component,
please refer to the release notes at
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps4324/prod_release_notes_list.html
Troubleshooting the Power Supply
To help isolate a power subsystem problem, follow these steps:
Step 1
Check whether the power supply LED labeled GOOD is on or the LED labeled FAIL is on. (on the DC
multi-input power supply, the LEDs are labeled INPUT 1, 2, or 3 or OUTPUT FAIL.)
Step 2
If the LED labeled GOOD is off or if the LED labeled FAIL is on, take the following steps:
•
Ensure that the power supply is flush with the back of the chassis.
•
Unplug the power cord, loosen and reinstall the power supply, tighten the captive installation screws,
and then plug in the power cord.
Step 3
If the LED labeled GOOD remains off, there might be a problem with the AC source or the power cable.
Connect the power cord to another power source if one is available. Verify that the source power is
acceptable within the specifications of the power supply.
Step 4
If the LED labeled GOOD fails to light after you connect the power supply to a new power source,
replace the power cord.
Note
Step 5
If this unit has more than one power cord, repeat Step 1 through Step 4 for each power input.
If the LED labeled GOOD still fails to light when the switch is connected to a different power source
with a new power cord, the power supply is probably faulty. See the “System Messages and Power
Problems” section on page 5-5. You may need to replace the power supply.
Catalyst 4500 E-Series Switches Installation Guide

OL-13972-01
Chapter 5
Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting the Power Supply
Step 6
If the LED labeled FAN OK fails to light when the switch is connected to a good power source with a
known good power cord, there is a malfunction in the fan that cools the power supply. Replace the power
supply.
Step 7
If a second power supply is available, install it in the second power supply bay.
Step 8
Check that the LED labeled GOOD is on for the additional power supply. Check that the LED labeled
FAIL is off.
Step 9
If the LEDs are not on, repeat the previous procedure to troubleshoot the second power supply.
If you are unable to resolve the problem, or if you determine that either a power supply or backplane
connector is faulty, contact Cisco Technical support for instructions.
System Messages and Power Problems
Check for system messages related to the power supply, and refer to the system message guide for your
software release. You may need to add a power supply or upgrade to a larger one for your current
configuration or verify that the switches are set properly on the power supply. Connect a terminal to the
console port, and look for any of the following system messages (there may be others, depending on the
software release):

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting the Fan Assembly
If the show module command output shows a message that states "not enough power for module," check
the “Catalyst 4500 Power Supplies” section on page A-6 for the minimum power requirements for the
power supply. There may be a problem with the power source itself.
Power Supply Mixing
The 1400 W DC multi-input supply can not be used with other power supply types, but other power
supplies in this product line work with the other types during an upgrade. If you mix power supplies in
a Catalyst 4500 series chassis, the switch detects the type of power supply in power supply bay 1 (PS1)
and ignores the power supply in power supply bay 2 (PS2) while issuing system messages and showing
the power supply in bay 2 as in the err-disable state in the output of the show power command. When
the power supply in bay 1 is removed, the switch recognizes the power supply in bay 2, and you may
then put a new matching power supply in bay 1. Both supplies should resume normal function.
Troubleshooting the Fan Assembly
Note
All fans must be operating or a failure will occur.
Environmental problems may initially appear to be problems with the fan tray. To help isolate a fan
assembly problem, follow these steps:
Step 1
Check the status LED on the fan tray.
•
If the LED is off and the rest of the system is functioning, the fan tray is not getting power or is not
seated correctly on the backplane.
•
If the LED is green, the fans are operating normally. There may be conditions impairing fan
performance, but they are minimal in impact.
•
If the LED is red, one or more fans have failed.
Step 2
Connect a terminal and determine the fan tray status shown by the show environment status CLI
command. The status and sensor columns should say good.
Step 3
Determine whether the airflow is restricted or if the ambient temperature in the room is too warm.
Step 4
Determine whether the power supply is functioning properly. See the “Troubleshooting the Power
Supply” section on page 5-4.
Step 5
Verify that the fan assembly is properly seated in the backplane by loosening the captive installation
screws, removing the fan assembly, and reinstalling it.
Step 6
Restart the system.
Step 7
Verify that all fans are operating. You should hear the fans at system start.
Step 8
If the system is still detecting a fan assembly failure, check for details using the CLI and contact the
Cisco TAC for assistance.

Troubleshooting Backplane Modules
The Cisco Catalyst 4500 E-series redundancy scheme uses removable redundancy modules (also called
mux-buffers), on the passive backplane to switch traffic to the active supervisor engine. There is one
redundancy module per switching module. Redundancy modules and a redundant clock ship standard
with every Cisco Catalyst 4507R-E and 4510R-E chassis. Spare redundancy modules (WS-X4590-E=)
and a clock module (WS-X4K-CLOCK-E=) are available for serviceability.
The following conditions indicate that you may need to replace the redundancy modules and clock
module:
•
The switch powers down and stays down for a few minutes to a few days for no clear reason.
•
The output-fail LED on the power supplies are red and no power is delivered to the chassis. The
other LEDs on the power supply are green.
•
The Status LEDs on the switching modules and the supervisor engine are flashing green.
•
CPU Utilization LEDs are flashing green or off.

to establish a terminal connection and the STATUS LED is red, contact Cisco TAC immediately to order
a replacement.
Problems with redundant supervisor systems are often due to mismatched active and standby supervisor
engines. Redundancy requires that both supervisor engines be the same model, have the same amount of
SDRAM memory and running the same Cisco IOS release. If one supervisor has a NetFlow service card,
the other must as well.
Some problems with supervisor engines are due to backplane connections that are not fully seated. If
removing and reinserting the supervisor engine and then restarting the switch does not solve the problem,
you may need to call Cisco TAC and replace the supervisor engine.

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting Supervisor Engines
Useful CLI Commands
Some problems can be solved by resetting the supervisor engine. Use the hw-module module <n> reset
power-cycle command to reset a switching module, or remove and re-insert the switching module,
which resets, restarts and power cycles the switching module. Pressing the reset button on the supervisor
engine causes the software to reload, but does not power cycle the supervisor engine.
Note
When you power-cycle or remove a supervisor engine in a redundant system the other supervisor engine
becomes the active supervisor and the ports retain connectivity. In a non-redundant system, all of the
switching modules lose connectivity until the supervisor engine is reinserted and completely restarted.
The show diagnostics power-on command may provide useful information for some supervisor engine
problems.
Not all software versions support all supervisor engines. If you are having trouble with a supervisor
engine, refer to the software release notes to be sure that it is supported by your software.
Standby Supervisor Engine Problems
If the standby supervisor engine module is not online or status indicates “other” or “faulty” in the output
of the show module command or an amber status LED, create a console connection to the standby

Make sure that the supervisor engine module properly seats in the backplane connector and that you have
completely screwed down the captive screws for the supervisor engine.
In order to determine whether the standby supervisor engine is faulty, enter the redundancy reload peer
command from the active supervisor engine and through the console to the standby supervisor engine.
Observe the bootup sequence in order to identify any hardware failures. Currently, the active supervisor
engine cannot access the power-on diagnostics results of the standby supervisor engine.
Make sure that these configurations are synchronized between the active and redundant supervisor
engines:

If a software upgrade is performed on both the active and standby supervisor engines, verify that both
supervisor engines are running the same new software image. If the software images are not the same,
upgrade the software image. Use the procedure in the software configuration guide for your release.
If the standby supervisor engine still does not come on line, create a service request with Cisco Technical
Support. Use the log of the switch output that you collected from the previous troubleshooting steps.
Switch Self-reset
If the switch has reset or rebooted on its own, verify that the power source for the switch did not fail. If
you use an uninterruptable power supply (UPS), make sure that the UPS does not have any problems.
The switch might have had a software crash. Enter the more crashinfo:data command to display the
crash information including date and time of the last time that the switch crashed. To display the standby
supervisor engine crash data, enter the more slavecrashinfo:data command. The crash data are not
present if the switch has never crashed.

If the output indicates a software crash at the time that you suspect that the switch rebooted, the problem
can be something other than a hardware failure. Contact Cisco Technical Support with the output of these
commands:
•

If you are still unable to determine the problem, contact Cisco Technical Support.
Ports 1/2 and 2/2 Do Not Function
If you have dual supervisor engines in a Catalyst 4507R or a Catalyst 4510R chassis and your ports 1/2
and 2/2 do not function, the system is functioning as designed, which is to have two uplinks operational
at all times. The dual uplinks must also work when only one supervisor engine is present. This means
that if only one supervisor engine is present and is in slot 1, both ports 1/1 and 1/2 are functional. Also,
if only one supervisor engine is present and is in slot 2, ports 2/1 and 2/2 are functional. When dual
supervisor engines are present, only ports 1/1 and 2/1 are functional and 1/2 and 2/2 are not functional.
For more information, refer to the redundancy chapter in the software configuration guide.
Packet Loss
If your system exhibits partial or full loss of network connectivity or packet loss, perform basic
troubleshooting procedures to eliminate the common causes. The common causes include:
•
Bad cabling
Catalyst 4500 E-Series Switches Installation Guide
OL-13972-01
5-13
Chapter 5
Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting Supervisor Engines
•
A bad port
•
Speed and duplex mismatch
•
Network interface card (NIC) issues
If you troubleshoot these common reasons and you are not able to narrow down the problem, follow the
steps in this section and capture the output of commands at each step, then contact Cisco Technical
Support for additional troubleshooting assistance.
Step 1
Power cycle the switch and observe the POST results at bootup.
Step 2
Enter the show diagnostics power-on command to verify the POST results from bootup and determine
if diagnostics fail again. If diagnostics fail again, the problem is most likely hardware. Contact Cisco
Technical Support for further assistance. If the supervisor engine passes the diagnostic tests without any
failure after the power cycle in Step 4, perform these steps:
a.
Collect the output from the show tech-support command.
b.
Remove all power supplies from the box, and collect the serial numbers, Cisco part number, and
manufacturer of the power supplies.
c.
Contact Cisco Technical Support with the information that you collected.
Note
If Cisco Technical Support did not assist with the troubleshoot procedure, you must provide the
information in the order of these steps.
Some Problems and Solutions
Module Not Online
Part or all of the module can fail to come online. You may have a module failure if you see an amber or
red status LED or if you see one of these statuses in the output of the show module command:
•
other
•
faulty
•
err-disable
•
power-deny
•
power-bad
Make sure that the module is properly seated and that you have completely screwed down the module.
If the module still does not come online, enter the hw-module slot slot number reset command. If the
module still does not come online, try the module in a spare slot, swap the module with the slot of a
module that works, or try the module in a different chassis.
If the status is “power-deny,” the switch does not have enough power available to power this module.
Enter the show power command in order to confirm whether enough power is available. For more
information, refer to the “Environmental Monitoring and Power Management” chapter in the software
configuration guide for your software release.
Catalyst 4500 E-Series Switches Installation Guide
5-14
OL-13972-01
Chapter 5
Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting Supervisor Engines
If the status is “power-bad,” the switch detects a switching module but is unable to allocate power. This
situation is possible if the supervisor engine cannot able to access the serial PROM (SPROM) contents
on the module in order to determine the identification of the line card. Enter the show idprom module
slot command to verify that the SPROM is readable. If the SPROM is not accessible, reset the module.
Enter the show diagnostics online module slot number command to identify hardware failures on the
module. If the module still does not come online, create a service request with Cisco Technical Support
in order to troubleshoot further. Use the log of the switch output that you collected in the above output
and the troubleshooting steps that you performed.
Interface Problems
If you see an error mentioned in the output of the show interface command, the reason could be:
•
A physical layer problem, such as a faulty cable or NIC
•
A configuration problem, such as a speed and duplex mismatch
•
A performance problem, such as an oversubscription
In order to understand and troubleshoot these problems, refer to Troubleshooting Switch Port and
Interface Problems at:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps700/products_tech_note09186a008015bfd6.shtm
l
Workstation Is Unable to Log In to the Network
If you observe that a workstation is unable to log into the network during startup or unable to obtain the
DHCP address when you have powered up a client machine or rebooted, an initial connectivity delay that
the switch introduced could be the problem. To verify this, check the following:
•
Microsoft network client displays "No Domain Controllers Available".
•
DHCP reports "No DHCP Servers Available."
•
A Novell Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX) network workstation does not have the Novell login
screen upon bootup.
•
An AppleTalk network client displays, "Access to your AppleTalk network has been interrupted. In
order to reestablish your connection, open and close the AppleTalk control panel." The AppleTalk
client chooser application can either fail to display a zone list or display an incomplete zone list.
•
IBM Network stations can have one of these messages:
– NSB83619—Address resolution failed
– NSB83589—Failed to boot after 1 attempt
– NSB70519—Failed to connect to a server
The reason for these symptoms can be an interface delay that either Spanning Tree Protocol (STP),
EtherChannel, trunking, or an autonegotiation delay causes. For more information about these delays
and possible solutions, refer to
:

NIC Compatibility Issues
You can have NIC compatibility or misconfiguration issues with the switch if you experience one of
these symptoms:
•
A server or client connection to the switch does not come up
•
Autonegotiation issues
•
Errors on the port
The reason for these symptoms can be a known NIC driver issue, speed and duplex mismatch, or
autonegotiation or cabling problems. For more troubleshooting information, refer to:

If you still have issues after you review and follow the procedure in the document Troubleshooting Cisco
Catalyst Switches to NIC Compatibility Issues, contact Cisco Technical Support for further assistance.
Interface Is in Errdisable
If the interface status is err-disable in the output of the show interface status command, some possible
reasons include:
•
Duplex mismatch
•
Port channel misconfiguration
•
Bridge protocol data unit (BPDU) guard violation
•
UniDirectional Link Detection (UDLD) condition
•
Late-collision detection
•
Link-flap detection
•
Security violation
•
Port Aggregation Protocol (PAgP) flap
•
Layer Two Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) guard
•
DHCP snooping rate-limit
In order to troubleshoot these scenarios, refer to the specific feature information in the Catalyst 4500
Series Switch Cisco IOS Software Configuration Guide for your software release.
Faulty Supervisor Engine
If the supervisor engine STATUS LED is red, establish a console connection to the supervisor engine
and enter the show diagnostics power-on command, if you can. If you are unable to get a console
connection or the command output indicates a failure, contact Cisco Technical Support.
If the switch does not boot and fails self diagnostics during the boot sequence, capture the console output
of the startup sequence then contact Cisco Technical Support.
If you do not see any hardware failure in the boot sequence or in the output of the show diagnostics
power-on command, contact Cisco Technical Support.

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting Supervisor Engines
Boot Problems
If the switch is in a continuous boot loop, is in ROMmon mode, or does not have a system image, there
is mostly likely not a hardware problem. The supervisor engine operates in a continuous loop if you have
not set the boot variable correctly and you have set the configuration register to 0x2102. For instructions
on how to recover the supervisor engine, refer to the “Recovering from a Continuous Reboot” section of
the document at this location:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps663/products_configuration_example09186a008
0094ecf.shtml
The supervisor engine goes into ROMmon mode or fails to boot when the system image is either corrupt
or absent. For instructions on how to recover the supervisor engine, refer to the “Recovering from a
Corrupt or Missing Image” section of the document at this location:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps663/products_configuration_example09186a008
0094ecf.shtml
The supervisor engines have onboard system Flash memory (bootflash), which should easily hold
multiple system images. Therefore, have a backup image. In addition to the bootflash, the supervisor
engine supports up to 128 MB of compact Flash in the slot0: device. The supervisor engine also provides
for transfer via TFTP of the image from ROMmon mode, which enables faster recovery of absent or
corrupt images.
Cannot Connect to a Switch Through the Console Port
Make sure you are using the correct type of cable. Make sure the terminal configuration matches the
switch console port configuration—default console port settings are 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity,
1 stop bit. Make sure the cable pinouts are correct for your supervisor engine (refer to the hardware
documentation for your supervisor engine).
Cannot communicate with another device, Cannot Telnet to the switch, Cannot communicate with a local or remote host
Follow these steps:
Step 1
Make sure the LINK LED for the port is green.
Step 2
Check the cabling:
•
Host-to-switch 10BASET connections and router-to-switch 10BASET or 100BASETX connections
typically are made using a straight-through cable.
•
Switch-to-switch connections typically are made using a rollover cable.
•
For SC- or ST-type fiber connections, make sure transmit (Tx) on one end of the link connects to
receive (Rx) on the other end of the link.
Step 3
Make sure the interface you are connecting to (sc0 or me1) is configured UP (use the show interface
command to check).
Step 4
Make sure the IP address, subnet mask, and VLAN membership of the switch interface (sc0 or me1) is
correct (use the show interface command).
Step 5
To prevent conflicts, make sure the me1 and sc0 interfaces are configured with IP addresses and subnet
masks in different subnets (use the show interface command to check), or disable one of the interfaces
using the set interface {sc0 | me1} disable command.
Step 6
Make sure the host configuration (IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, speed, and duplex setting)
is correct.
Catalyst 4500 E-Series Switches Installation Guide
OL-13972-01
5-17
Chapter 5
Troubleshooting
Contacting the Cisco Technical Assistance Center
Step 7
If you cannot connect to the switch through the me1 interface, make sure the connected device is
configured for half-duplex 10-Mbps operation.
Step 8
If the host is in the same subnet as the switch interface, make sure the switch interface and the switch
port to which the host is connected are assigned to the same VLAN (use the show interface and show
port commands to check).
Step 9
If the host is in a different subnet, make sure the default gateway (default route) on the switch is
configured with the address of a router in the same subnet as the switch interface (use the show ip route
command).
Step 10
Check the status of the port connection—should be “connected” (use the show port command).
Step 11
Check the spanning-tree state on the port (use the show spantree mod_num/port_num command)—if the
port is in listening or learning mode, wait until the port is in forwarding mode and try to connect to the
host again.
Step 12
Make sure the speed and duplex settings on the host and the appropriate switch ports are correct (use the
show port command).
Step 13
If the connected device is an end station:
a.
Enable spanning-tree PortFast on the port (use the set spantree portfast enable
command)—PortFast places the port in forwarding mode immediately, bypassing listening and
learning modes (do not use this feature for connections to non-end station devices).
b.
Disable trunking on the port (use the set trunk mod_num/port_num off command).
c.
Disable channeling on the port (use the set port channel port_list off command)—you must specify
a valid port range with this command—you cannot specify a single port.
Step 14
Make sure the switch is learning the MAC address of the host (use the show cam dynamic command).
Step 15
If possible, try connecting to another port.
Cannot autonegotiate the port speed/duplex
Make sure autonegotiation is configured on both ends of the link (use the show port command)—you
cannot configure settings manually on one end of the link and configure the other end of the link for
autonegotiation. If autonegotiation fails when you connect a client NIC to the switch, check the NIC and
drivers to make sure that autonegotiation is supported.
If autonegotiation is supported and properly configured but you still cannot connect, turn off
autonegotiation and set the speed and duplex manually (use the set port speed and set port duplex
commands).

Tables A-5 through A-12 list the specifications for the Catalyst 4500 series power supplies, which can
be used in any Catalyst 4500 E-series switch.
Note
All Catalyst 4500 series switch AC-input power supplies require single-phase source AC. The source AC
can be out of phase between multiple power supplies or multiple AC-power plugs on the same power
supply because all AC power supply inputs are isolated. Each chassis power supply should have its own

The 4200 W AC power supply should not be used in mixed-voltage configurations. All the inputs in a
chassis must be at the same voltage (110 VAC or 220 VAC).
Table A-14 shows the wattage output possible with the 4200W power supply in redundant mode. In
redundant mode, both power supplies must have identical inputs and all inputs must be at the same
voltage. If the input voltages are mismatched, choose the value matching the weaker of the two power
supplies.

Initial Configuration for the Switch
This chapter provides a quick step-by-step initial setup procedure for a switch.
These steps describe how to do a simple installation:
1.
Connecting to the Switch, page C-2
2.
Starting the Terminal-Emulation Software, page C-2
3.
Connecting to a Power Source, page C-2
4.
Entering the Initial Configuration Information, page C-3
Note
If you are using a DC power supply, see the “Power Connection Guidelines for DC-Powered Systems”
section on page 2-9 for more information about setting up your switch with a DC power supply.
Note
You need to provide the Category 5 straight-through cables to connect the switch ports to other
Ethernet devices.
Note
If you move a supervisor engine from a Catalyst 4500 series chassis to a Catalyst 4503-E chassis or
Catalyst 4506-E chassis, it must use Cisco IOS Release 12.2(37)SG or later. Refer to the release note for
software upgrade procedures if needed:

Appendix C
Initial Configuration for the Switch
Connecting to the Switch
Connecting to the Switch
You must use the console port to perform the initial configuration. To connect the switch console port to
a PC, use the supplied RJ-45-to-DB-9 adapter cable.
Follow these steps to connect the PC or terminal to the switch:
Step 1
Using the supplied RJ-45-to-DB-9 adapter cable, insert the RJ-45 connector into the console port that is
located on the front of the supervisor engine.
Step 2
Attach the DB-9 female DTE of the adapter cable to a PC serial port, or attach an appropriate adapter to
the terminal.
Starting the Terminal-Emulation Software
Before you power on the switch, start the terminal-emulation session so that you can see the output
display from the power-on self-test (POST).
The terminal-emulation software—frequently a PC application such as Hyperterminal or
ProcommPlus—makes communication between the switch and your PC or terminal possible.
Step 1
Start the terminal-emulation program if you are using a PC or terminal.
Step 2
Start a terminal-emulation session.
Step 3
Configure the baud rate and character format of the PC or terminal to match these console port default
characteristics:
•
9600 baud
•
8 data bits
•
1 stop bit
•
No parity
•
None (flow control)
Connecting to a Power Source
Follow these steps to connect to a power source:
Step 1
If you are using an AC power supply, connect one end of the supplied AC power cord to the power
connector on the switch, and then connect the other end of the power cable to a grounded AC outlet.
Step 2
If you are using a DC power supply, see the instructions on how to install the DC power supply in
Chapter 3, “Installing the Switch in a Rack.”

As the switch powers on, it begins the POST, a series of tests that runs automatically to ensure that the
switch functions properly.
POST lasts approximately 1 minute. After POST is complete, the system and status LEDs remain green.
If the switch fails POST, the system LED turns amber.
Note
POST failures are usually fatal. Call Cisco Systems if your switch does not pass POST.
If you started the terminal-emulation program before you powered on your switch, the PC or terminal
displays the bootloader sequence. You need to press Enter to display the setup program prompt.
Entering the Initial Configuration Information
To set up the switch, you need to assign an IP address and other configuration information necessary for
the switch to communicate with the local routers and the Internet. The minimal configuration provided
here does not cover most of the features, it simply allows you to preform other configuration tasks using
a telnet connection from your management network. To configure other features and interfaces, please
refer to the Catalyst 4500 Series Switch Software Configuration Guide.

Switching Modules
Ethernet Management Port
The WS-X4013+10GE supervisor engine modules have a 10/100/1000BASE-T Ethernet management
port. Supervisor engines use an RJ-45 connector on the front panel with a link status LED. For the
location of the port, see Figure D-1 (WS-X4516-10GE).
TCP/IP-based management services available through inband access also are provided through this port
(Telnet and SNMP). This management port also supports image download.
Note
The 10BASE-T and 10/100BASE-T Ethernet management ports are for network management only.
These ports do not support network switching.
Console Port
The console port is an RJ-45 receptacle. The console port allows you to perform the following functions:
Note
•
Configure the switch from the CLI
•
Monitor network statistics and errors
•
Configure SNMP agent parameters
•
Download software updates to the switch or distribute software images residing in Flash memory to
attached devices
EIA/TIA-232 was known as recommended standard RS-232 before its acceptance as a standard by the

Hot-Swapping Feature
Catalyst 4500 E-series switches allow you to remove and replace switching modules without powering
down the switch. This feature is known as hot swapping.
When you remove or insert a switching module while the switch is operating, the system does the
following:
1.
Scans the backplane for configuration changes.
2.
Initializes all newly inserted switching modules, notes any removed modules, and places them in the
administratively shutdown state.
3.
Places any previously configured interfaces on the switching module back to the state they were in
when they were removed. Any newly inserted interfaces are put in the administratively shutdown
state, as if they were present (but unconfigured) at boot time. If you insert a similar
switching-module type into a slot, its ports are configured and brought online up to the port count
of the original switching module.
The system runs diagnostic tests on any new interfaces. If the test passes, the system is operating
normally. If the new switching module is faulty, the system resumes normal operation but places the new
module in the “faulty” state.
If the diagnostic test fails, the system crashes, which usually indicates that the new switching module
has a problem and should be removed.
Caution
To avoid erroneous failure messages, allow at least 15 seconds for the system to re initialize, and note
the current configuration of all interfaces before you remove or insert another switching module.
When you hot swap switching modules, the system displays status messages on the console screen. The
following sample display shows the messages logged by the system when a switching module is removed
from slot 2:
Console>
2001 Sep
Console>
2001 Sep
Console>
2001 Sep
Console>
(enable)
09 12:23:26 %SYS-5-MOD_REMOVE:Module 3 has been removed

(enable)
09 12:23:47 %SYS-5-MOD_OK:Module 3 is online
(enable)
If you use the show port command to query the module before reinstalling a module to replace the
removed one, the system responds, “Module 3 is not installed.” When the module is reinserted, the
system recognizes the module as ready again.
