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

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.

Opening a TAC Case
The online TAC Case Open Tool (http://www.cisco.com/tac/caseopen) is the
fastest way to open P3 and P4 cases. (Your network is minimally impaired or you
require product information). After you describe your situation, the TAC Case
Open Tool automatically recommends resources for an immediate solution. If
your issue is not resolved using these recommendations, your case will be
assigned to a Cisco TAC engineer.
For P1 or P2 cases (your production network is down or severely degraded) or if
you do not have Internet access, contact Cisco TAC by telephone. Cisco TAC
engineers are assigned immediately to P1 and P2 cases to help keep your business
operations running smoothly.
To open a case by telephone, use one of the following numbers:
Asia-Pacific: +61 2 8446 7411 (Australia: 1 800 805 227)
EMEA: +32 2 704 55 55
USA: 1 800 553-2447
For a complete listing of Cisco TAC contacts, go to this URL:
http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml
TAC Case Priority Definitions
To ensure that all cases are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established
case priority definitions.
Priority 1 (P1)—Your network is “down” or there is a critical impact to your
business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around

•
Redundant, self-monitoring clock modules for system clock generation.
Note
The clock modules in the Cisco MDS 9216 Switch have a
field-measured mean time between failures (MTBF) of
approximately 3.2 million hours or 365 years. In the unlikely event of
a clock module failure, the system generates an error message and a
switchover from one clock module to the other occurs, causing the
system to reset automatically. These clock modules are not hot
swappable, so system downtime must be scheduled to replace a failed
clock module.
Power Supplies
The Cisco MDS 9216 Switch supports dual hot swappable 845 Watt AC power
supplies, each of which can supply sufficient power to the entire chassis should
one power supply fail. The power supplies monitor their output voltage and
provide status to the supervisor-fabric module. To prevent the unexpected
shutdown of an optional module, power management software only allows a
module to power up if adequate power is available.

remaining power supply can still power the entire system. For information about
how to configure the power supplies, refer to the Cisco MDS 9000 Family
Configuration Guide.

Fan Module
The Cisco MDS 9216 Switch supports a hot-swappable fan module with four fans.
The fan module provides 270 CFM (cubic feet per minute) of cooling, allowing
400 Watt of power dissipation per slot. Sensors on the supervisor module monitor
the internal air temperature. If the air temperature exceeds a preset threshold, the
environmental monitor displays warning messages.
If one or more fans within the fan module fail, the Fan Status LED turns red.
Individual fans cannot be replaced, you must replace the entire fan module. The
Cisco MDS 9216 Switch continues to run if the fan module is removed, as long as
preset temperature thresholds have not been exceeded. This means you can swap
out a fan module without having to bring the system down. To replace a fan
module, see the “Removing and Installing the Fan Module” section on page 2-31.

Switching Modules
The Cisco MDS 9216 Switch supports the following hot-swappable switching
modules:
•
16-Port 1 Gbps / 2 Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module
•
32-Port 1 Gbps / 2 Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module
The Cisco MDS 9216 Switch supports one hot-swappable switching or services
module in addition to the 16-port 1 Gbps / 2 Gbps switching module that is part
of the supervisor module.
The Fibre Channel switching modules provide system-wide power management
and auto-negotiation, which allows ports to negotiate for speed at the other end of
the link. Each module has temperature sensors and an EEPROM that stores serial
number and model number information.
The Fibre Channel port interfaces support hot-swappable Fibre Channel SFP
transceivers, which can be short wavelength (SWL) or long wavelength (LWL).
The port interfaces also support coarse wavelength-division multiplexing
(CWDM) SFP transceivers, which can be used for extended long wavelength
(EWL) transmission or for coarse wavelength-division multiplexing (CWDM).
For more information about SFP transceivers, see Supported SFP Transceivers,
page 1-21.
16-Port 1 Gbps / 2 Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module
The 16-port 1 Gbps / 2 Gbps switching module is best used for applications
requiring highest bandwidth; for example, Inter-Switch Link (ISL) connections
between switches and high-performance host or storage controllers. The 16-port
switching module supports a sustained data rate of up to 2 Gbps in each direction,
on all ports simultaneously. Figure 1-5 shows a 16-port 1 Gbps / 2 Gbps switching
module.
The auto-sensing 1 Gbps / 2 Gbps ports of the 16-port Fibre Channel switching
module deliver up to 64 Gbps of continuous, aggregate bandwidth when attached
to high performance servers and storage subsystems.

32-Port 1 Gbps / 2 Gbps Fibre Channel Switching Module
The 32-port 1 Gbps / 2 Gbps Fibre Channel switching module can be used to
allocate bandwidth optimally, and delivers the industry’s highest line-card port
density. The module is organized into eight four-port groups. Only the first port
in each four-port group can be an ISL. If the first port is an ISL, the other three
ports in the group are disabled. The four ports within a port group share a single
internal channel resulting in a subscription ratio of approximately 3.2:1. The
32-port 1 Gbps / 2 Gbps switching module provides more ports at a lower price
per port. Figure 1-6 shows a 32-port switching module.
Tip
For a full 2 Gbps bandwidth between two hosts, connect one host to the first port
group and the second host to the second port group.

Switching Module Features
Each switching module draws its power from the 42V supplied on the backplane
with local DC/DC power converters and regulators.
The control processor on the switching module provides power-on, offline, and
online diagnostics. The control processor can be used to configure devices on the
switching module and to gather statistical data from each port.
The control processor can determine which slot it is plugged into, and it can
monitor its DC/DC power source and temperature. The control processor signals
the supervisor module and displays an alarm on its front panel when a problem is
detected.
The front panel on the switching module provides basic status information, such
as power-on, self-test running, self-test passed, alarm, and ready.
The binary image for the switching module is downloaded from the supervisor
module. Prior to the image download, the control processor on the switching
module runs from code stored on its local CompactFlash card.
Note
Routine software downloads are not required.

The supervisor module can force a reset on the switching module and controls
whether power is applied to the switching module.
If a single component or a set of components on the switching module fails, this
does not disable other switching modules if that is the only failure in the system.
For the detection of most component failures, each switching module has a
hardware watchdog timer that resets the card if is not serviced periodically.

Ports Configured to Run FCIP
Ports configured for FCIP operation can be configured to support up to three
virtual ISL connections (FCIP tunnels). An FCIP link transports Fibre Channel
traffic transparently over IP between two FCIP capable switches. Each link acts
as a virtual Fibre Channel ISL with either an E port or a TE port at each end.
Ports Configured to Run iSCSI
Ports configured for iSCSI operation allow IP attached initiators access to FC
attached targets with the IPS modules. The module terminates iSCSI commands
from the hosts and initiates new Fibre Channel commands to the targets, and
performs the translation between IP and Fibre Channel domains.

Each module draws power from the 42V supplied on the backplane with local
DC/DC power converters and regulators.
The control processor on the module provides power-on, offline, and online
diagnostics. The control processor can be used to configure devices on the
switching module and to gather statistical data from each port.
The control processor monitors the DC/DC power source and temperature. The
control processor signals the supervisor module and displays an alarm on its front
panel when a problem is detected.
The front panel on the services module provides basic status information, such as
power-on, self-test running, self-test passed, alarm, and ready.
The binary image for the services module is downloaded from the supervisor
module. Prior to the image download, the control processor on the switching
module runs from code stored on its local CompactFlash card.
Note
Software downloads are only necessary when a revision of the code is needed.
The supervisor module can force a reset on the services module and controls
whether power is applied to the switching module.
If a single component or a set of components on the switching module fails, this
failure will not disable another switching module if that is the only failure in the
system.

Combination Fibre Channel / Gigabit Ethernet SFP transceivers are supported for
switches running Cisco MDS SAN-OS Release 1.1(1a) or later.
SFP transceivers are field-replaceable. You can use any combination of SFP
transceivers that are supported by the switch. The only restrictions are that SWL
transceivers must be paired with SWL transceivers, LWL transceivers with LWL
transceivers, and the cable must not exceed the stipulated cable length for reliable
communications.
Refer to the release notes for the list of supported SFP transceivers. For more
information about a specific Cisco SFP transceiver, refer to the SFP transceiver
documentation.
SFP transceivers can be ordered separately or with the Cisco MDS 9216.
Note
Use only Cisco SFP transceivers on the Cisco MDS 9216. Each Cisco SFP
transceiver is encoded with model information that enables the switch to verify
that the SFP transceiver meets the requirements for the switch.
Fibre Channel SFP Transceivers
Cisco’s Fibre Channel SFP transceivers are available in short wavelength (SWL)
or long wavelength (LWL) versions. Both of these versions are 1 Gbps / 2 Gbps
capable.

Product Overview
Ethernet Ports
Send documentation comments to mdsfeedback-doc@cisco.com.
CWDM SFP transceivers can be used in two ways:
•
CWDM transmission, which allows you to send and receive up to 8 laser
wavelengths carrying different signals simultaneously on the same optical
fiber, using an OADM.
•
Send ELWL signals, which are capable of transmitting over longer distances
than LWL SFP transceivers
There are eight different “colors” of CWDM SFP transceivers, one for each fixed
wavelength. The fiber optic cables from the CWDM SFP transceivers must be
connected to an Optical Add/Drop Module (OADM), which combines the
wavelengths of the different outgoing signals into one composite send signal, and
separates the received transmissions into the different wavelengths and sends
them to the corresponding CWDM SFP transceiver.
For detailed transceiver specifications, see Appendix C, “Cable and Port
Specifications”.
Ethernet Ports
The IPS module supports 1-Gigabit Ethernet ports. For more information about
supported port types, refer to the Cisco MDS 9000 Family Configuration Guide.

Caution
•
Consider heat dissipation when sizing the air-conditioning requirements
(environmental and heat dissipation requirements are listed in Appendix B,
“Technical Specifications”).
•
Ensure 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.
Avoid UPS types that use ferroresonant technology. These UPS types can become
unstable with systems like the Cisco MDS 9000 Family, 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 845 Watt power supply requires a 15A or 20A circuit.
If you are using a 200/240 VAC power source in North America, the circuit
must be protected by a two-pole circuit breaker.
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.
•
If mounting the chassis in a rack or cabinet, ensure the rack or cabinet meets
the following requirements:
– Standard 19” EIA rack or cabinet, with mounting rails that conform to
English universal hole spacing per section 1 of ANSI/EIA-310-D-1992.
– Width between two front mounting rails: minimum of 17.75 inches
(45.1 cm)
– Depth between front and rear mounting rails: minimum of 23.5 inches
(59.7 cm)

Powering Up the Switch and Verifying Component Installation
Warning
Blank faceplates and cover panels serve three important functions: they
prevent exposure to hazardous voltages and currents inside the chassis; they
contain electromagnetic interference (EMI) that might disrupt other equipment;
and they direct the flow of cooling air through the chassis. Do not operate the
system unless all cards, faceplates, front covers, and rear covers are in place.
Statement 1029
To power up the switch and verify hardware operation, follow these steps:
Step 1
Verify that the faceplates of all modules are flush with the front of the chassis,
and the ejector levers are fully closed and approximately parallel to the front of the
module.
Step 2
Verify that any empty module slots have filler panels installed.
Step 3
Verify that both power supplies and the fan module are installed.
Step 4
Check the captive screws of the power supplies, fan module, and all supervisor,
switching, or services modules, and tighten any loose captive screws.
Step 5
Connect the black cable provided in the accessory kit to the console port on the
switch and to the console terminal (see the “Connecting to the Console Port”
section on page 3-2).
Note
Do not connect the MGMT 10/100 Ethernet port to the LAN until the initial
switch configuration has been performed. For instructions on configuring the
switch, refer to the Cisco MDS 9000 Family Configuration Guide.
Step 6
Ensure that the switch is adequately grounded as described in the “Grounding the
Chassis” section on page 2-15, and that the power cables are connected to outlets
that have the required AC power voltages (provided in the “Power Specifications”
section on page B-3).
Step 7
Power up the switch by moving the power switches on the power supplies to the
on (|) position. The switch boots automatically.
Step 8
Listen for the fans; they should begin operating as soon as the switch is powered
on.

Caution
Do not operate the switch without a functioning fan module except for during the
brief fan module replacement procedure. The Cisco MDS 9000 Family switches
can operate for only a few minutes without a functioning fan module before they
begin to overheat.
Step 9
When the switch has finished booting, verify that the LED behavior is as follows:
•
Fan module: Status LED is green
•
Power supplies:
– Input Ok LED is green
– Fan Ok LED is green
– Output Fail LED is off
•
Supervisor, switching, or services modules:
– The System LED on the supervisor module is green, indicating that all
chassis environmental monitors are reporting that the system is
operational. If this LED is orange or red, then one or more environmental
monitors is reporting a problem.
– The Status LED on the switching or services modules flashes orange
once, remains orange during diagnostic boot tests, then turns green when
the module is operational (online). If the system software is unable to
start up, this LED remains orange or turns red.
Note
The LEDs for the Fibre Channel ports remain orange until the ports are
enabled, and the LED for the MGMT 10/100 Ethernet port remains off
until the port is connected.
If any LEDs other than the Fibre Channel port LEDs are orange or red after the
initial boot processes are complete, refer to Appendix A, “Troubleshooting” for
more information.
Step 10
If a component is not operating correctly, try removing and re-installing it. If it
still does not operate correctly, contact your customer service representative for
a replacement.

Connecting the Cisco MDS 9216
Switch
The Cisco MDS 9216 Switch provides the following types of ports:
Caution
•
CONSOLE port (Interface Module): An RS-232 port that you can use to
create a local management connection.
•
COM1 port (Interface Module): An RS-232 port that you can use to connect
to an external serial communication device such as a modem.
•
MGMT 10/100 Ethernet port (Interface Module): An Ethernet port that you
can use to access and manage the switch by IP address, such as through the
CLI or Fabric Manager.
•
Fibre Channel ports (Supervisor and Switching Modules): Fibre Channel
ports that you can use to connect to the SAN, or for in-band management.
When running power and data cables in overhead or sub-floor cable trays, we
strongly recommend that power cables and other potential noise sources be
located 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 shielding any potential noise sources by housing
them in a grounded metallic conduit.

•
Additional interface equipment required
Connecting to the Console Port
The console port, labeled “Console”, is an RS-232 port with an RJ-45 interface
(see Figure 3-1 on page 3-3). 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.
Note
Connecting the console port to a modem is supported for switches running Cisco
MDS SAN-OS Release 1.2(2a) or later.
Although the console port can be used to connect to a modem, the COM1 port is
recommended for this purpose.

The Cisco MDS 9000 Family supports both Fibre Channel and Gigabit Ethernet
protocol for SFP transceivers. Each transceiver must match the transceiver on the
other end of the cable, and the cable must not exceed the stipulated cable length
for reliable communications. Refer to the release notes for the list of specific
supported SFP transceivers. SFP transceivers can be ordered separately or with
the Cisco MDS 9216 Switch.
Warning
Invisible laser radiation may be emitted from disconnected fibers or
connectors. Do not stare into beams or view directly with optical instruments.
Statement 1051
Caution
Wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap connected to the chassis when handling
transceivers. Keep optical connectors covered when not in use, and do not touch
connector ends. Avoid removing and inserting transceivers more often than
necessary.
Caution
To prevent damage to the fiber optic cables, do not place more tension on them
than the rated limit and do not bend to a radius of less than 1 inch if there is no
tension in the cable, or 2 inches if there is tension in the cable.
Note
Use only Cisco SFP transceivers on the Cisco MDS 9216 Switch. Each Cisco SFP
transceiver is encoded with model information that enables the switch to verify
that the SFP transceiver meets the requirements for the switch. For instructions
specific to the transceiver type, refer to the Installation Notes for the Cisco Small

Step 2
Remove the dust plug from the port end of the transceiver by pressing the trigger
on top of the plug to release the latch (clicks open) and pulling the plug out.
Step 3
Align and insert the transceiver into the port until the latch clicks. Transceivers
are keyed to prevent incorrect installation; if it does not slide in easily, verify it is
correctly oriented.
Step 4
Remove the dust plugs from the cable and the cable-end of the transceiver.
Step 5
Align and insert the cable end into the transceiver (see Figure 3-4) until the latch
clicks. Cables are keyed to prevent incorrect installation. If the cable does not
slide in easily, verify it is correctly oriented.
Step 6
Connect the other end of the cable to the external end system or switch.

Removing an SFP Transceiver and Fiber Optic Cable
Caution
When pulling a cable from a transceiver, grip the body of the connector. Do not
pull on the jacket sleeve, since this can compromise the fiber-optic termination in
the connector.
To remove an SFP transceiver and fiber optic cable from a Fibre Channel port,
follow these steps:
Step 1
Press the latch on top of the SFP to release the lock and gently pull the transceiver
from the port.
Step 2
If desired, remove the cable from the transceiver by pressing the latch on the cable
and pulling the cable from the transceiver.
Step 3
Cover the ends of the transceiver and the cable with the appropriate dust caps.
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.
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 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.

Getting Started
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.

Troubleshooting
Solving Problems at the Component Level
Send documentation comments to mdsfeedback-doc@cisco.com.
When the initial system boot is complete, verify the following:
•
Power supplies are supplying power to the system. See the “Removing and
Installing Power Supplies” section on page 2-27.
•
The system fan module is operating. See the “Removing and Installing the
Fan Module” section on page 2-31.
•
The system software boots successfully. Refer to the Cisco MDS 9000 Family
Configuration Guide for information on booting the system and initial
configuration tasks.
•
The supervisor module and the switching or services module are installed
correctly and each one initialized without problems. For more information,
see the “Removing and Installing Switching and Services Modules” section
on page 2-22 and the “Verifying Installation of a Switching or Services
Module in Slot 2” section on page 2-27.
If each of these conditions is met and the hardware installation is complete, refer
to the Cisco MDS 9000 Family Configuration Guide to troubleshoot the software.
However, if any of these conditions are not met, use the procedures in this
appendix to isolate and, if possible, resolve the problem.
Solving Problems at the Component Level
The key to success when troubleshooting the system 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.
The Cisco MDS 9216 Switch includes the following subsystems:
•
Power supply—The power supply includes the power supply fans.
•
Fan module—The fan module should operate whenever system power is on.
You should see the Fan LED turn green and should hear the fan module to
determine whether or not it is operating. If the Fan LED is red, this indicates
that one or more fans in the fan module is not operating. You should
immediately contact your customer service representative (see the
“Contacting Customer Service” section on page A-7). There are no
installation adjustments that you can make if the fan module does not
function properly at initial startup.

Note
If you purchased this product through a Cisco reseller, contact the reseller
directly for technical support. If you purchased this product directly from
Cisco, contact Cisco Technical Support at this URL:
http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml.
•
Supervisor module—The supervisor module contains the system operating
software, so check your supervisor module if you have trouble with the
system software. A Status LED indicates whether the supervisor module can
initialize the module in slot 2, if present.
•
Switching or services module—A Status LED on the module indicates if it
was initialized by the supervisor module. A module that is partially installed
in the backplane can cause the system to halt.
Identifying Startup Problems
LEDs indicate all system states in the startup sequence. By checking the LEDs,
you can determine when and where the system failed in the startup sequence.
To identify startup problems, follow these steps:
Step 1
Turn on the power supply by pressing the switch on (|). You should immediately
hear the system fan module begin to operate. If you do not, see the
“Troubleshooting the Power Supplies” section on page A-5. If you determine that
the power supplies are functioning normally and the fan module is faulty, contact
your customer service representative. If the system fan module does not function
properly at initial startup, there are no installation adjustments that you can make.
To replace the fan module, see the “Removing and Installing the Fan Module”
section on page 2-31.
Step 2
Verify that the LEDs on the interface module are on as follows:
•
The Status LED 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.
•
The System LED turns green, indicating that all chassis environmental
monitors are reporting that the system is operational. If one (or more)
environmental monitors reports a problem, the System LED is orange or red.

•
The Active LED turns green, indicating that the supervisor module is
operational and active.
•
Each Link LED flashes orange once and stays orange during diagnostic boot
tests, and turns green when the module is operational (online). If no signal is
detected, the Link LED turns off. The Link LED blinks orange if the port is
bad.
If any LEDs on the supervisor module or interface module front panel are red or
orange, contact your customer service representative (see the “Contacting
Customer Service” section on page A-7).
For a complete description of the supervisor module and interface module LEDs,
see the “Supervisor Module LEDs” section on page 1-7 and the “Interface Module
LEDs” section on page 1-9.
Step 3
Verify that the Status LEDs on the supervisor module and on the switching or
services module are green when the supervisor module completes initialization.
This LED indicates that the modules are receiving power. It also indicates that the
module is recognized by the supervisor module, and that it contains a valid Flash
code version. This LED does not indicate the state of the individual interfaces on
the switching module. If a Status LED is red or orange, contact your customer
service representative (see the “Contacting Customer Service” section on
page A-7).
Step 4
Verify that the terminal is set correctly and that it is connected properly to the
supervisor module console port if the boot information and system banner are not
displayed.

Troubleshooting the Power Supplies
Send documentation comments to mdsfeedback-doc@cisco.com.
Troubleshooting the Power Supplies
To isolate a power supply problem, follow these steps:
Step 1
Verify that the Input Ok LED on the power supply is green.
a.
If the Input Ok LED is green, the AC source is good and the power supply is
functional.
b.
If the Input Ok LED is off, first ensure that the power supply is flush with the
back of the chassis. Press the power switch off (0), tighten the captive
installation screw(s), and then press the power switch on (|).
c.
If the Input Ok LED remains off, there might be a problem with the
AC source, or the power cable.
d.
Turn off the power to the switch by pressing both power switches to 0,
connect the power cord to another power source if one is available, and press
the power switch back on (|).
e.
If the Input Ok LED is now green, the problem was the first power source.
f.
If the Input Ok LED fails to light after you connect the power supply to a new
power source, replace the power cord and press the switch on (|).
g.
If the Input Ok LED lights at this point, return the first power cord for
replacement.
If the Input Ok LED 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.
If a second power supply is available, install it in the second power supply bay
and contact your customer service representative for further instructions.
Step 2
Repeat Step 1 if you have a second (redundant) 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 your customer service
representative (see the “Contacting Customer Service” section on page A-6).

Troubleshooting the Fan Module
To isolate a fan module problem, follow these steps:
Step 1
Verify that the Fan LED on the fan module is green.
If the Fan LED is not lit, see the “Solving Problems at the Component Level”
section on page A-2 to determine whether the power supply is functioning
properly.
Step 2
If the Fan LED is red, the fan module is not seated in the backplane or has
malfunctioned.
a.
Loosen the captive installation screws, remove the fan module, and reinstall
it to ensure that the fan module is seated properly.
b.
Tighten all captive installation screws, and then restart the system.
If the Fan LED is still red, the system detects a fan module failure. Contact your
customer service representative for instructions.
Troubleshooting Switching and Services Modules
To isolate a problem with a module in slot 2, follow these steps:
Step 1
Verify that all Status LEDs are on.
If the status LEDs on the interface module or the slot 2 module are red or off, the
module might have shifted out of its slot.
Step 2
Reseat the module until both ejector levers are at 90 degrees to the rear of the
chassis.
Step 3
Tighten the captive installation screws at the left and right of the module front
panel.
Step 4
Restart the system.
If the Status LED on a module is orange, the module might be busy or disabled.
Refer to the Cisco MDS 9000 Family Configuration Guide to configure or enable
the interfaces. After the system re-initializes the interfaces, the Status LED on the
module should be green.

SFP Transceiver Specifications
The Cisco MDS 9216 Switch is compatible with SFP transceivers and cables that
have LC connectors. Each transceiver must match the transceiver on the other end
of the cable in terms of wavelength, and the cable must not exceed the stipulated
cable length for reliable communications.
Cisco SFP transceivers provide the uplink interfaces, laser send (TX), and laser
receive (RX), and support 850 to 1610 nm nominal wavelengths, depending upon
the transceiver. For detailed specifications, refer to the documentation provided
with the transceivers.
Use only Cisco SFP transceivers on the Cisco MDS 9216 Switch. Each Cisco SFP
transceiver is encoded with model information that enables the switch to verify
that the SFP transceiver meets the requirements for the switch. Refer to the release
notes for the list of specific supported SFP transceivers.
This section provides the following information:
•
