Installation Options with Racks and Cabinets
The Cisco Nexus 6004 switch 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 6004 switch is either from front
to back or from back to front, depending on how the modules were ordered. 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. The Cisco Nexus 6004 with three 1100W power supplies, four
expansion modules, and four fan modules weighs 122 lb. The Cisco Nexus 6004 with three 1100W
power supplies and four fan modules weighs 100 lb.
•
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 6004 switch, follow these guidelines:

2-2
OL-15902-01
Chapter 2
Installing the Cisco Nexus 6000 Series Switches
Preparing for Installation
Send documentation comments to nexus5kdocs@cisco.com.
•
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-8.
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 6004 switch, 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.
•
Use the following screw torques when installing the switch:

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 2-2
lists some general grounding practice guidelines.

system is always recommended. Best
grounding recommendations should be
followed as much as possible.
Note
In all situations, grounding practices must comply with local National Electric Code (NEC)
requirements or local laws and regulations.
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 6000 series 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 2-11 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
Step 3
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.
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 6004 switches,
clip the grounding wire to the screw that attaches the grounding lug to the switch chassis .
In addition, follow these guidelines when handling modules:
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 6000 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 6000 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.
•
Crimping tool to crimp the grounding wire to the grounding lug.
•
Wire-stripping tool to remove the insulation from the grounding wire.
Grounding the Cisco Nexus 6000 Series Chassis
The chassis has a grounding pad with two threaded M4 holes for attaching a grounding lug. The location
of the system ground on the Cisco Nexus 6004 switch is similar to that on the Cisco Nexus 5500 Platform
switches.
Note
For the procedure on how to ground the Cisco Nexus 6000 Series switch chassis, see the “Grounding the
Cisco Nexus 6000 Series Chassis” section on page 2-11.

Connecting the Switch
This chapter describes how to connect the Cisco Nexus 6004 switche to the following types of ports:
Caution
•
Console port —A 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.
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.

Preparing for Network Connections
When preparing your site for network connections to the Cisco Nexus 6004 switch, consider the
following for each type of interface, and gather all the required equipment before connecting the ports:
•
Cabling required for each interface type
•
Distance limitations for each signal type
•
Additional interface equipment required
Connecting to the Console Port
The console port is an RS-232 port with an RJ-45 interface. 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.
You can use the console port to perform the following:
Note
•
Configure the Cisco Nexus 6004 switch from the CLI.
•
Monitor network statistics and errors.
•
Configure SNMP agent parameters.
•
Download software updates.
To connect the console port to a computer terminal, the computer must support VT100 terminal
emulation. The terminal emulation software (such as HyperTerminal or Procomm Plus) makes
communication between the Cisco Nexus 6004 switch and a computer possible during setup and
configuration.
To connect the console port to a computer terminal, follow these steps:
Step 1
Configure the terminal emulator program to match the following default port characteristics: 9600 baud,
8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity.
Step 2
Connect the RJ-45 connector of the console cable to the console port and the DB-9 connector to the
computer serial port.

•
The width between the rack-mounting rails must be at least 19 inches 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-8.
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 6000 Series switch.
This appendix includes the following sections:
•
Overview, page E-1
•
Switch Hardware Best Practices, page E-1
•
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.
Switch Hardware Best Practices
Use the recommendations in this section to ensure the proper installation, initialization, and operation
of the switch.

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.
Table E-1
