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

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.

Overview
This chapter provides an overview of the Cisco Nexus 5000 Series switches, which include the Cisco
Nexus 5000 Platform switches and the Cisco Nexus 5500 Platform switches. The overview of each of
these switches includes information on the expansion modules, power supplies, and fan modules that you
can include with them.
This chapter includes the following sections:
•
Cisco Nexus 5500 Platform Switches, page 1-1
•
Cisco Nexus 5000 Platform Switches, page 1-29
Cisco Nexus 5500 Platform Switches
The Cisco Nexus 5500 Platform supports the following application scenarios, many of which require the
installation of other products:
•
As an access-layer switch, it can be used purely as a 1- and 10-Gigabit Ethernet switch,
consolidating 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections into a smaller number of server connections trunked
to the aggregation layer.
•
As a smaller-scale aggregation switch, it can be used as a Layer 3 1- and 10-Gigabit Ethernet switch,
consolidating multiple 1- and 10-Gigabit Ethernet connections from a data center access layer.
•
In conjunction with the Cisco Nexus 2248T GE Ethernet Fabric Extender, the Cisco Nexus 5500
Platform can be a high-density 1-Gigabit Ethernet switching system, consolidating more than 900
Gigabit Ethernet connections within a single management plane.
•
In conjunction with the Cisco Nexus 2232T 10GE Fabric Extender, it can be a high-density
switching system, consolidating more than 600 10-Gigabit Ethernet connections within a single
management plane.
•
In conjunction with the Cisco Nexus 2224TM 10GE Fabric Extender, it can be a high-density
switching system, consolidating more than 600 10-Gigabit Ethernet connections within a single
management plane
•
As a rack-level I/O consolidation platform, the switch carries Ethernet traffic from servers to the
aggregation layer and carries FC traffic to existing Fibre Channel SANs.
•
As a crucial element in data center I/O consolidation, the switch enables I/O consolidation at the
access layer and provides interoperability with the Cisco Nexus 5500 Platform and other
standards-based products.

Features
The Cisco Nexus 5596UP switch is a top-of-rack, 10-Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre channel over Ethernet
(FCoE) switch offering up to 1920 Gigabit throughput and up to 96 ports. The switch has 48 1- and
10-Gigabit Ethernet and FCoE ports and three expansion slots. As a top-of-rack switch, all the servers
in the rack connect to the Cisco Nexus 5596UP switch, and it connects to the LAN or SAN.
The Cisco Nexus 5596UP switch has the following features:
•
48 fixed 1- and 10-Gigabit Ethernet server connection ports on the back of the switch
•
Three slots on the back of the switch for optional expansion modules, which can be either a 16-port
10-Gigabit generic expansion module 2 (GEM2) or a layer 3 GEM2
•
Two slots on the front of the switch for hot swap-capable power supplies, which provide
front-to-back airflow for cooling
•
Four slots on the front of the switch for hot swap-capable fan modules.
•

Cables
On the Cisco Nexus 5500 Platforms, you can use an innovative Twinax copper cable that connects to
standard SFP+ connectors for in-rack use and on the optical cable for longer cable runs.
For in-rack or adjacent-rack cabling, the Cisco Nexus 5500 Platform supports SFP+ direct-attach
10-Gigabit Ethernet copper, which integrates transceivers with Twinax cables into an energy efficient,
low-cost, and low-latency solution. SFP+ direct-attach 10-Gigabit Twinax copper cables use only
0.1 W of power per transceiver and introduce only approximately 0.25 microsecond of latency per link.
For longer cable runs, the Cisco Nexus 5500 Platform supports multimode, short-reach optical SFP+
transceivers. These optical transceivers use approximately 1 W per transceiver and have a latency of
less than 0.1 microsecond.
Table 1-7 shows details of the cables supported.

Features
The Cisco Nexus 5020 switch is a 2 RU, top-of-rack switch that provides Ethernet and Fibre Channel
consolidation in a single physical cable. The Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) protocol is used to
consolidate Ethernet and Fibre Channel traffic onto the same physical connection between the server and
the switch. As a top-of-rack switch, all the servers in the rack connect to the Cisco Nexus 5020 switch,
and it connects to the LAN or SAN.
The Cisco Nexus 5020 switch is a part of a family of switches that provide 10-Gigabit Ethernet and FCoE
ports and both 10-Gigabit Ethernet and native 4-, 2-, or 1-Gbps Fibre Channel ports. The switches
provide consolidated I/O connectivity to both production Ethernet LANs and Fibre Channel SANs in a
cost-effective, high-performance, low-latency Ethernet switch.

Features
The Cisco Nexus 5010 switch is a top-of-rack switch that provides Ethernet and Fibre Channel
consolidation in a single physical cable. The Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) protocol is used to
consolidate Ethernet and Fibre Channel traffic onto the same physical connection between the server and
the switch. As a top-of-rack switch, all the servers in the rack connect to the Cisco Nexus 5010 switch,
and it connects to the LAN or SAN.
The Cisco Nexus 5010 switch is a part of a family of switches that provide 10-Gigabit Ethernet and FCoE
ports and both 10-Gigabit Ethernet and native 4-, 2-, or 1-Gbps Fibre Channel ports. The switches
provide consolidated I/O connectivity to both production Ethernet LANs and Fibre Channel SANs in a
cost-effective, high-performance, low-latency Ethernet switch.
The Cisco Nexus 5010 switch has the following features:
•
One slot on the back of the switch for an optional uplink Generic Expansion Module [GEM]. The
following modules can be inserted into this slot: N5K-M1404, N5K-M1600 and N5K-M1008.
•
There are 20 to 28 ports on the back of the switch depending on which GEM is installed. Twenty
ports on Cisco Nexus 5010 switch belong to the base switch. Additionally, you can insert a module
with six or eight ports.
•
Two slots on the front of the switch for hot swap-capable power supplies.
•
Two slots on the front of the switch for fan modules. Each fan module houses six fans. The
combination of six fans per module and two modules provides the switch with a total of 12 fans.
•
The L1/L2/Mgmt1 ports are not usable. They are disabled at this time

Platform switch for installation. This section includes the following topics:
•
Installation Options with Racks and Cabinets, page 2-2
•
Airflow Direction, page 2-2

Installation Options with Racks and Cabinets
The Cisco Nexus 5500 Platform switches and the Cisco Nexus 5000 Platform switches can be installed
in the following types of racks using a rack-mount kit shipped with the switch:
•
Open EIA rack
•
Perforated EIA cabinet
To enable you to easily mount your switch in any qualifying rack, you can attach the rack-mount brackets
to accommodate racks of different depths. For instructions on how to use a rack-mount kit, see the
“Installing the Switch” section on page 2-5.
Airflow Direction
The airflow through the fan trays and power supplies on the Cisco Nexus 5548 UP switch is either from
front to back or from back to front, depending on how the modules were ordered. The airflow through
the other Cisco Nexus 5000 Series switches is from front to back. To ensure proper airflow, you must
make sure that when you install the switch its air intake is positioned in a cold aisle and the air exhaust
is positioned in a hot aisle for your data center.
Chassis Weight
When lifting the switch chassis, follow these guidelines:
•
Disconnect all power and external cables before lifting the switch.
•
Have two people lift the switch. These switches have the following weights:
– The Cisco Nexus 5596 switch weighs 50 lb (22.68 kg)
– The Cisco Nexus 5548 switch weighs 32 lb (14.51 kg).
– The Cisco Nexus 5020 switch weighs 50 lb (22.68 kg).
– The Cisco Nexus 5010 switch weighs 35 lb (15.88 kg).
•
Ensure that your footing is solid and the weight of the switch is evenly distributed between your feet.
•
Lift the switch slowly, keeping your back straight. Lift with your legs, not with your back. Bend at
the knees, not at the waist.

Installation Guidelines
When installing the Cisco Nexus 5500 Platform switch or the Cisco Nexus 5000 Platform switch, follow
these guidelines:
•
Record the information listed in Appendix G, “Site Planning and Maintenance Records,” as you
install and configure the switch.
•
Ensure that there is adequate space around the switch to allow for servicing the switch and for
adequate airflow (Appendix B, “Technical Specifications,” lists the service and airflow
requirements).
•
Ensure that the air-conditioning meets the heat dissipation requirements listed in Appendix B,
“Technical Specifications.”
•
Ensure that the cabinet or rack meets the requirements listed in Appendix A, “Cabinet and Rack
Installation.”
Jumper power cords are available for use in a cabinet. See the “Jumper Power Cord” section on
page C-9.
Note
•
Ensure that the chassis can be adequately grounded. If the switch is not mounted in a grounded rack,
we recommend connecting both the system ground on the chassis and the power supply ground
directly to an earth ground.
•
Ensure that the site power meets the power requirements listed in Appendix B, “Technical
Specifications.” If available, you can use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to protect against
power failures.
Caution
•
Avoid UPS types that use ferroresonant technology. These UPS types can become unstable
with systems such as the Cisco Nexus 5500 Platform switches or the Cisco Nexus 5000
Platform switches, which can have substantial current draw fluctuations because of
fluctuating data traffic patterns.
Ensure that circuits are sized according to local and national codes. For North America, the power
supply requires a 15-A or 20-A circuit.
Caution
To prevent loss of input power, ensure the total maximum loads on the circuits supplying
power to the switch are within the current ratings for the wiring and breakers.
•
Ensure that all fan trays and power supplies have the same airflow drection. All Cisco Nexus 5000
Series switches can be ordered with front to back airflow ad the Cisco Nexus 5548UP switch can
alternatively have back to front airflow, which is identified with a black stripe on the switch.
•
Use the following screw torques when installing the switch:
– Captive screws: 4 in-lb (0.45 N·m)
– M3 screws: 4 in-lb (0.45 N·m)
– M4 screws: 12 in-lb (1.36 N·m)
– 10-32 screws: 20 in-lb (2.26 N·m)
– 12-24 screws: 30 in-lb (3.39 N·m)

•
ESD wrist strap or other grounding device
•
Antistatic mat or antistatic foam
The following additional items (not found in the accessory kit) are required to ground the chassis:
•
Grounding cable (6 AWG recommended), sized according to local and national installation
requirements; the required length depends on the proximity of the switch to proper grounding
facilities
•
Crimping tool large enough to accommodate the girth of the lug
•
Wire-stripping tool
Unpacking and Inspecting the Switch
Caution
When handling switch components, wear an ESD strap and handle modules by their handles and carrier
edges only. An ESD socket is provided on the chassis. For the ESD socket to be effective, the chassis
must be grounded through the power cable, the chassis ground, or the metal-to-metal contact with a
grounded rack.
Tip
Keep the shipping container in case the chassis requires shipping in the future.
Note
The switch is thoroughly inspected before shipment. If any damage occurred during transportation or
any items are missing, contact your customer service representative immediately.
To inspect the shipment, follow these steps:

Proper Grounding Practices
Grounding is one of the most important parts of equipment installation. Proper grounding practices
ensure that the buildings and the installed equipment within them have low-impedance connections and
low-voltage differentials between chassis. When you properly ground systems during installation, you
reduce or prevent shock hazards, equipment damage due to transients, and data corruption. Table 2-5
lists some general grounding practice guidelines.

Note
Always ensure that all of the modules are completely installed and that the captive installation screws
are fully tightened. In addition, ensure that all I/O cables and power cords are properly seated. These
practices are normal installation practices and must be followed in all installations.
Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage, which can occur when modules or other FRUs are improperly
handled, results in intermittent or complete failures. 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, always use
an ESD grounding strap when handling modules.
For preventing ESD damage, follow these guidelines:
Note
•
Always use an ESD wrist strap and ensure that it makes maximum contact with bare skin.
•
ESD grounding straps are available with banana plugs, metal spring clips, or alligator clips. All
chassis from the Cisco Nexus 5500 Platform or from the Cisco Nexus 5000 Platform switches are
equipped with a banana plug connector (identified by the ground symbol next to the connector)
somewhere on the front panel. We recommend that you use a personal ESD grounding strap
equipped with a banana plug.
•
If you choose to use the disposable ESD wrist strap supplied with most FRUs or an ESD wrist strap
equipped with an alligator clip, you must attach the system ground lug to the chassis in order to
provide a proper grounding point for the ESD wrist strap.
This system ground is also referred to as the network equipment building system (NEBS) ground.
•
Note
If your chassis does not have the system ground attached, you must install the system ground lug.
See the “Establishing the System Ground” section on page 2-21 for installation instructions and
location of the chassis system ground pads.
You do not need to attach a supplemental system ground wire to the system ground lug; the lug provides
a direct path to the bare metal of the chassis.
After you install the system ground lug, follow these steps to correctly attach the ESD wrist strap:
Step 1
Step 2
Attach the ESD wrist strap to bare skin as follows:
a.
If you are using the ESD wrist strap supplied with the FRUs, open the wrist strap package and
unwrap the ESD wrist strap. Place the black conductive loop over your wrist and tighten the strap
so that it makes good contact with your bare skin.
b.
If you are using an ESD wrist strap equipped with an alligator clip, open the package and remove
the ESD wrist strap. Locate the end of the wrist strap that attaches to your body and secure it to your
bare skin.
Grasp the spring or alligator clip on the ESD wrist strap and momentarily touch the clip to a bare metal
spot (unpainted surface) on the rack. We recommend that you touch the clip to an unpainted rack rail so
that any built-up static charge is then safely dissipated to the entire rack.

Step 3
Attach either the spring clip or the alligator clip to the ground lug screw as follows:
a.
Note
b.
If you are using the ESD wrist strap that is supplied with the FRUs, squeeze the spring clip jaws
open, position the spring clip to one side of the system ground lug screw head, and slide the spring
clip over the lug screw head so that the spring clip jaws close behind the lug screw head.
The spring clip jaws do not open wide enough to fit directly over the head of the lug screw or
the lug barrel.
If you are using an ESD wrist strap that is equipped with an alligator clip, attach the alligator clip
directly over the head of the system ground lug screw or to the system ground lug barrel.
To attach the ESD wrist strap to the system ground lug screw for any of the Cisco Nexus 5500 Series
switches, clip the grounding wire to the screw that attaches the grounding lug to the switch chassis (see
Figure 2-13).

Caution
•
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.
•
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).
Establishing the System Ground
This section describes how to connect a system ground to the Cisco Nexus 5500 Series switch or the
Cisco Nexus 5000 Series switch.
You must use the system ground on AC-powered systems if you are installing this equipment in a U.S.
or European Central Office.
The system ground provides additional grounding for EMI shielding requirements and grounding for the
low-voltage supplies (DC-DC converters) on the modules and is intended to satisfy the Telcordia
Technologies requirements for supplemental bonding and grounding connections. You must observe the
following system grounding guidelines for your chassis:
•
You must install the system ground connection with any other rack or system power ground
connections that you make. The system ground connection is required if this equipment is installed
in a U.S. or European Central Office.
•
You must connect both the system ground connection and the power supply ground connection to
an earth ground. The system ground connection is required if this equipment is installed in a U.S.
or European Central Office.
•
You do not need to power down the chassis because the Cisco Nexus 5000 Series switches are
equipped with AC-input power supplies.
Required Tools and Equipment
To connect the system ground, you need the following tools and materials:
•
Grounding lug—A two-hole standard barrel lug. This lug supports up to 6 AWG wire. Supplied as
part of accessory kit.
•
Grounding screws—Two M4 x 8mm (metric) pan-head screws. These screws are supplied as part of
the accessory kit.
•
Grounding wire—Not supplied as part of accessory kit. The grounding wire should be sized
according to local and national installation requirements. Depending on the power supply and
system, a 12 AWG to 6 AWG copper conductor is required for U.S. installations. Commercially
available 6 AWG wire is recommended. The length of the grounding wire depends on the proximity
of the switch to proper grounding facilities.
•
No. 1 Phillips screwdriver.

Connecting the Switch
This chapter describes how to connect the Cisco Nexus 5500 Platform and Cisco Nexus 5000 Platform
switches to the following types of ports:
Caution
•
Console port —An RS-232 port that you can use to create a local management connection.
•
Ethernet ports, both encrypted and unencrypted—These ports can be used to connect to a LAN.
•
Fibre Channel ports—These ports can be used to connect to a SAN.
When running power and data cables in overhead or subfloor cable trays, we strongly recommend that
you locate power cables and other potential noise sources as far away as practical from network cabling
that terminates on Cisco equipment. In situations where long parallel cable runs cannot be separated by
at least 3.3 ft (1 m), we recommend that you shield any potential noise sources by housing them in a
grounded metallic conduit.

•
Distance limitations for each signal type
•
Additional interface equipment required
Connecting to the Console Port
Note
This section applies to the Cisco Nexus 5500 Platform switches and the Cisco Nexus 5000 Platform
switches.
The console port is an RS-232 port with an RJ-45 interface. (See Figure 3-1.) The console port is an
asynchronous (async) serial port; any device connected to this port must be capable of asynchronous
transmission.
We recommend using this port to create a local management connection to set the IP address and other
initial configuration settings before connecting the switch to the network for the first time.
Caution
The console port can be used to connect to a modem. If you do not connect it to a modem, connect it
either before powering the switch on or after the switch has completed the boot process.
Figure 3-1 shows how to connect to the console port on the Cisco Nexus 5000 Platform switch. The
process is identical for the Cisco Nexus 5500 Platform switch.

Maintaining SFP Transceivers and Fiber-Optic Cables
SFP transceivers and fiber-optic cables must be kept clean and dust-free to maintain high signal accuracy
and prevent damage to the connectors. Attenuation (loss of light) is increased by contamination and
should be below 0.35 dB.
Consider the following maintenance guidelines:
•
SFP transceivers are static sensitive. To prevent ESD damage, wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap
that is connected to the chassis.
•
Do not remove and insert a transceiver more often than is necessary. Repeated removals and
insertions can shorten its useful life.
•
Keep all optical connections covered when not in use. If they become dusty, clean before using to
prevent dust from scratching the fiber-optic cable ends.
•
Do not touch ends of connectors to prevent fingerprints and other contamination.
•
Clean regularly; the required frequency of cleaning depends upon the environment. In addition,
clean connectors if they are exposed to dust or accidentally touched. Both wet and dry cleaning
techniques can be effective; refer to your site’s fiber-optic connection cleaning procedure.
•
Inspect routinely for dust and damage. If damage is suspected, clean and then inspect fiber ends
under a microscope to determine if damage has occurred.

Replacing or Installing Power Supplies
The Cisco Nexus 5500 Platform switches and the Cisco Nexus 5000 Platform switches support two
front-end AC or DC power supplies, but may be used with one power supply. The switches each require
one power supply, but you can include a second power supply for power redundancy. If you use only one
power supply, you must fill the second power supply slot with a blank module to maintain the designed
airflow.
If you need to replace an existing power supply, follow the procedures that explain how to remove and
install power supplies. If you are installing a new power supply where one did not exist before, follow
the installation procedure.
Note
The airflow direction must be the same for all power suply and fan modules in the chassis. You can order
all modules with front to back airflow but you can alternatively order back to front airflow for the Cisco
Nexus 5548UP switch modules. Back to front airflow modules have a black stripe.Make sure that all
modules have either a black strip for back to front or no stripe for front to back.

might slip off the end of the rails and fall out of the rack.
To remove the Cisco Nexus 5500 Platform chassis or the Cisco Nexus 5000 Platform chassis from a rack,
follow these steps:
Step 1
Ensure that the weight of the switch is fully supported and that the switch is being held by another
person.
Step 2
Disconnect the power cord and the console cables.
Step 3
Disconnect all cables that are connected to SFP+ transceivers.
Step 4
Remove the screws fastening the front rack-mount brackets to the mounting rails.
Step 5
Gently slide the switch towards you, off of the slider rails and out of the rack.

Cabinet and Rack Installation
This appendix provides the requirements for cabinet and rack installation for the Cisco Nexus 5500
Platform switch or the Cisco Nexus 5000 Platform switch and includes the following sections:
•
Cabinet and Rack Requirements, page A-1
•
Cable Management Guidelines, page A-2
Cabinet and Rack Requirements
This section provides the requirements for the following types of cabinets and racks, assuming an
external ambient air temperature range of 0 to 104oF (0 to 40oC):
•
Standard perforated cabinets
•
Standard open racks
Note
If you are selecting an enclosed cabinet, we recommend one of the thermally validated types: standard
perforated or solid-walled with a fan tray.
Note
Do not use racks that have obstructions (such as power strips), because the obstructions could impair
access to field-replaceable units (FRUs).
This section includes the following topics:
•
General Requirements for Cabinets and Racks, page A-1
•
Requirements Specific to Perforated Cabinets, page A-2
General Requirements for Cabinets and Racks
The cabinet or rack must be one of the following types:
•
Standard 19-in. (48.3 cm) (four-post EIA cabinet or rack, with mounting rails that conform to
English universal hole spacing per section 1 of ANSI/EIA-310-D-1992. See the “Requirements
Specific to Perforated Cabinets” section on page A-2.

Cabinet and Rack Installation
Cable Management Guidelines
Send documentation comments to nexus5kdocs@cisco.com.
The cabinet or rack must also meet the following requirements:
•
The minimum vertical rack space for the Cisco Nexus 5596 chassis and Cisco Nexus 5020 chassis
must be two RU (rack units), equal to 3.50 inches (8.9 cm).
•
The minimum vertical rack space for the Cisco Nexus 5548 chassis and Cisco Nexus 5010 chassis
must be one RU (rack unit), equal to 1.75 inches (4.4 cm).
•
The width between the rack-mounting rails must be at least 17.75 inches (45.1 cm) if the rear of the
switch is not attached to the rack. For four-post EIA racks, this is the distance between the two front
rails.
•
For four-post EIA cabinets (perforated or solid-walled), the requirements are as follows:
– The minimum spacing for the bend radius for fiber-optic cables should have the front-mounting
rails of the cabinet offset from the front door by a minimum of 3 inches (7.6 cm), and a
minimum of 5 inches (12.7 cm) if cable management brackets are installed on the front of the
chassis.
– The distance between the outside face of the front mounting rail and the outside face of the back
mounting rail should be 23.5 to 34.0 inches (59.7 to 86.4 cm) to allow for rear-bracket
installation.
– A minimum of 2.5 inches (6.4 cm) of clear space should exist between the side edge of the
chassis and the side wall of the cabinet. No sizeable flow obstructions should be immediately
in the way of chassis air intake or exhaust vents.
Note
Optional jumper power cords are available for use in a cabinet. See the “Jumper Power Cord”
section on page C-9.
Requirements Specific to Perforated Cabinets
A perforated cabinet is as a cabinet with perforated front and rear doors and solid side walls. In addition
to the requirements listed in the “General Requirements for Cabinets and Racks” section on page A-1,
perforated cabinets must meet the following requirements:
•
The front and rear doors must have at least a 60 percent open area perforation pattern, with at least
15 square inches (96.8 square cm) of open area per rack unit of door height.
•
The roof should be perforated with at least a 20 percent open area.
•
The cabinet floor should be open or perforated to enhance cooling.
Cisco provides an R-Series rack that conforms to these requirements.
Cable Management Guidelines
To help with cable management, you might want to allow additional space in the rack above and below
the chassis to make it easier to route as many as 56 fiber or copper cables through the rack.

Troubleshooting Hardware Components
This appendix describes how to identify and resolve problems that might occur with the hardware
components of a Cisco Nexus 5000 Series switch.
This appendix includes the following sections:
•
Overview, page E-1
•
SNMP Traps, page E-1
•
Switch Hardware Best Practices, page E-2
•
Power Supply Conditions, page E-2
Overview
The key to success when troubleshooting the system hardware is to isolate the problem to a specific
system component. The first step is to compare what the system is doing to what it should be doing.
Because a startup problem can usually be attributed to a single component, it is more efficient to isolate
the problem to a subsystem rather than troubleshoot each separate component in the system.
Problems with the initial power up are often caused by a module that is not firmly connected to the
backplane or a power supply that has been disconnected from the power cord connector.
Overheating can also cause problems with the system, though typically only after the system has been
operating for an extended period of time. The most common cause of overheating is the failure of a fan
module.
SNMP Traps
You can set SNMP traps to monitor fans, power supplies, and temperature settings, or to test a call home
application. Use the following commands to set SNMP traps:
•
test pfmtest-SNMP-trap fan
•
test pfmtest-SNMP-trap power supply
•
test pfmtest-SNMP-trap temp-sensor

Switch Hardware Best Practices
Use the recommendations in this section to ensure the proper installation, initialization, and operation
of the switch.
This section includes the following topics:
•
Installation Best Practices, page E-2
•
Initialization Best Practices, page E-2
•
Switch Operation Best Practices, page E-2
Installation Best Practices
When installing the switch, follow these best practices:
•
Plan your site configuration and prepare the site before installing the chassis.
•
Verify that you have the appropriate power supplies for your chassis configuration.
•
Install the chassis following the rack and airflow guidelines presented in this guide.
•
Verify that the chassis is adequately grounded.
Initialization Best Practices
When the initial system boot is complete, verify the following:
•
Power supplies are supplying power to the system.
•
Fan modules are operating normally.
•
The system software boots successfully.
Switch Operation Best Practices
To ensure proper operation of your switch, take the following actions:
•
Make a copy of the running configuration to CompactFlash for a safe backup.
•
Always enter the copy running-config startup-config CLI command after you modify the running
configuration and ensure that the system is operating properly.
•
Never use the init system CLI command unless you understand that you will lose the running and
startup configuration as well as the files stored on bootflash:.
•
Keep backup copies of the running kickstart and the system images on CompactFlash.
Power Supply Conditions
The two LEDs on each power supply indicate the power status for each power supply. To determine the
current status for a power supply unit, note which LED is on, blinking, or off and refer to Table E-1.
