Overview of the Switch
Installation
Before the MSA Fabric Switch 6 can communicate with Compaq-managed devices,
all devices must be properly connected and powered on.
Ethernet RJ-45 Cable
This connector is provided for management through Simple Network Management
Protocol (SNMP). By default, the MSA Fabric Switch 6 is configured to use an IP
address of 127.0.0.1. To change this IP address, use ACU-XE, a terminal, or a
terminal emulator connected to the DB-9 serial port. Refer to Chapter 2, “Initial
Configuration of the Switch,” for more detailed information on this subject.
DB-9 Serial Cable
This connector is provided for advanced configuration and management.
The MSA Fabric Switch 6 is designed to function directly out of its shipping
container with no special configuration required. However, you have the ability to
configure and monitor various aspects of the MSA Fabric Switch 6 by using
ACU-XE or CIM-XE or by connecting a terminal or terminal emulator to the serial
port. See Chapter 2, “Initial Configuration of the Switch,” for more information on
using this interface.

Overview of the Switch
Hot-Pluggable
The MSA Fabric Switch 6 is hot-pluggable. The unit can be installed and replaced
without power-cycling the MSA1000.
When adding or replacing a switch, allow sufficient time to complete the power-on
self-tests (POST) and configuration tasks before using.
To power on the unit properly:
1. Power on the MSA1000.
On power up, the switch will run several POST tests and the GSI indicator will
display changing patterns (refer to the section “Reading the Global Service
Indicator” in Chapter 4, “Troubleshooting”).
2. Power on I/O device(s).
3. Verify that the storage device(s) are visible to the host(s).
4. Start Applications.
Before the MSA Fabric Switch 6 can communicate with Compaq-managed devices,
all devices must be properly configured, connected, and powered up. See Chapter 2,
“Initial Configuration of the Switch,” for installation instructions.

Initial Configuration of the Switch
This chapter details the procedures used to initially configure the MSA Fabric
Switch 6. Preliminary switch configuration includes entering the Ethernet and the
SNMP settings.
Two configuration methods are available:
•
Using the text-based user interface to configure the switch
•
Using the Array Configuration Utility-XE (ACU-XE) to configure the switch

Initial Configuration of the Switch
Configuration Overview
When a switch is initially connected to a network, the network does not recognize it
and does not know its IP address. Accessing the switch and entering the Ethernet and
SNMP settings assigns the switch a location and makes it available to the network.
After the switch is accessible, additional parameters must be entered. These
secondary configuration tasks can be performed from four different user interfaces,
including the text-based user interface (text-based UI), Command Line Interface
(CLI), the ACU-XE, and the Compaq MSA Fabric Switch 6 Management Utility.
The text-based UI can be used for the initial configuration tasks and the CLI can be
accessed from this interface to perform advanced configuration tasks.
The CLI of the switch provides access to extensive management and monitoring
functions and is available directly through the serial port in the front of the switch or
remotely through the switch’s Ethernet interface using telnet. During initial set-up, it
is accessed through the text-based UI. Subsequently, the system defaults to the CLI
or the text-based UI, depending on which interface was used last. For information on
the CLI, refer to Appendix C, “Command Line Interface.”
The ACU-XE is a web-based user interface primarily used to configure the array
controllers and hard drive arrays of the MSA1000. In addition, the ACU-XE can be
used to configure the switch. Instructions for configuring the switch using the
ACU-XE are included in this chapter. For information on using the ACU-XE to
configure the storage, refer to the StorageWorks by Compaq Modular SAN Array
1000 User Guide or the Compaq Array Configuration Utility XE User Guide.
The MSA Fabric Switch 6 Management Utility provides most of the functions
available in the text-based UI and the CLI, but in a user-friendly, web-based,
graphical interface. It is accessible from Compaq Insight Manager (CIM-XE) or any
workstations equipped with a web browser. For more information, refer to
www.compaq.com/storageworks.

Initial Configuration of the Switch
Using the Text-based UI to Configure the Switch
The text-based UI of the switch is available directly through the serial port in the
front of the switch. After the Ethernet settings are entered, the text-based UI can be
accessed remotely through the switch’s Ethernet interface using telnet. With the
following exceptions, all functions of the menu interface are available either directly
or through telnet.
•
The telnet interface is available only after the MSA Switch is completely booted.
This means the results of the initialization tests are not viewable and if a reset is
issued, the telnet connection is terminated.
•
Users are unable to change the password over the telnet interface.
Another difference between using the serial port interface and telnet is that when
using telnet, you can only get access to the switch after it has started up and has
initialized its network parameters. Consequently, you must have a directly-connected
terminal to initially configure network parameters and to view the power-up
information of the MSA Switch.
Connecting a Terminal to the Switch
NOTE: This process uses a computer running on Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 or later.
However, the switch can communicate with any operating system that utilizes a terminal
emulator. If your computer uses another operating system, be sure that the baud rate, data
bits, stop bits, parity, and terminal emulation are set for the selected serial port as specified in
this procedure.
To directly connect a terminal to the MSA Switch:
1. Make sure there is power to the switch and attach a terminal or terminal
emulator.
2. Connect a server serial port to the switch’s DB-9 serial port.
3. Power on the server (if it is not already on).
4. Access the terminal emulator on the server. In Windows NT 4.0, select
StartProgramsAccessoriesHyperTerminal

Initial Configuration of the Switch
Setting the Gateway Address
Select option 4. Set gateway address in the Network Parameters menu to call up the
Set Gateway Address menu, which is shown in Figure 2-5.
The gateway is a computer or Ethernet router that connects your segment of the
Ethernet to other segments. This is also true if using telnet to communicate with the
MSA Fabric Switch 6 over the Ethernet from systems on other segments. In both of
these cases, the MSA Fabric Switch 6 will need the IP address of the gateway system
in order for it to function. Direct questions about gateways to your local network
administrator.

address
Saving Modifications
Though a number of parameters may have been set in the Network Parameters menu,
none are permanent until the Save modifications and reset switch to activate option
is chosen. This saves the parameters in non-volatile memory and reboots the switch
with the new parameters in effect.

Accessing Management Parameters
Select option 3. Management settings in the main menu to call up the Management
Settings Menu, which is shown in Figure 2-6.
Unlike the Network Parameters menu, changes made in this menu become effective
as soon as they are made. There is no need to reset the switch.
Figure 2-6: Management Options menu
Options include:
1. Return to main menu allows the user to return to the main menu.
2. Set SNMP get community string calls up the SNMP Get Community Name
menu. This allows the user to restore the default SNMP get community name or to
enter a new SNMP get community name.
3. Set SNMP set community string calls up the SNMP Set Community Name menu.
This allows the user to restore the default SNMP set community name or to enter a
new SNMP set community name. The SNMP Set community string is the password
that any SNMP client must use to write settings to the SNMP agent on the MSA
Fabric Switch 6. This name can be any ASCII string desired. The factory default is
“private.”
4. Set SNMP trap community string calls up the SNMP Trap Community Name
menu. The SNMP Trap community string is the password that any SNMP client must
use to poll the SNMP agent on the MSA Fabric Switch 6 for SNMP traps. This name
can be any desired ASCII string. The factory default is “SNMP_trap.”
To change the SNMP Trap Community string, type the new name at the command
prompt and press the Enter key.

5. Change Password is used to enter a new password. There will be verification to
test if this has been successfully completed or not. For security reasons, the password
can only be changed through the serial port. It cannot be changed through a telnet
connection over the Ethernet.
The password can be set to null (that is, a carriage return) or an alphanumeric
password can be used with up to eight characters. The space cannot be part of the
password as it is used to separate the first and second copies of the new password.
NOTE: If the new password is forgotten, contact your network administrator. You will need the
unit’s serial number and Ethernet MAC address.
Accessing the CLI
Select option 4. Command line interface on the main menu, to call up the command
line interface. This gives the user the ability to change parameters. These parameters
should only be modified by a knowledgeable user in order to modify the MSA
Switch operational parameters, to set up policies, as well as to troubleshoot problems.
The complete Command Line Interface is outlined in Appendix C, “Command Line
Interface.”
Exiting the Text-based UI
The user can log out of the MSA Switch by selecting option 5. Logout in the main
menu. The original login prompt is redisplayed.
Resetting the Switch
Select option 6. Reset Switch in the main menu to reboot the switch. This should not
be done in a haphazard manner as all Fibre Channel connections provided by the
switch can be affected and any management data stored in the switch will be erased.

Initial Configuration of the Switch
Using the Array Configuration Utility-XE (ACU-XE) to
Configure the Switch
When using the ACU-XE to initially configure the switch, depending on the
controller’s settings and the current switch configuration, you will be shown various
options. The ACU-XE will prompt for information through specific screens, allowing
changes before they are saved.
In addition to accessing the ACU-XE, the switch configuration process is separated
in to two parts:
•
Initial switch configuration
•
Advanced switch configuration
As discussed previously, initial switch configuration includes setting the IP address,
Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway of the switch (and the redundant switch, if
installed). Until these Ethernet and SNMP parameters are entered, a Web Browser
cannot find or connect to the switch.
Advanced switch configuration includes managing and monitoring ports, setting up
zoning, and upgrading the switch firmware. Advanced configuration tasks are
performed in using the MSA Fabric Switch 6 Management Utility. A link to this
utility is provided in the ACU-XE.
NOTE: The switch configuration utility Web link to the MSA Fabric Switch 6 Management
Utility is present only if the selected controller supports this feature.
NOTE: In the following screen examples, the configuring server’s IP address is
10.100.100.14. One switch has an IP address of 10.100.100.10 and the other switch’s IP
address is 10.100.100.11.

following table.
Table 3-6: Port Control Panel
Parameters
Description
Status
Displays one of the following:
Failed Diagnostics = could not initialize the port; the port has failed.
Loopback mode = loopback cable is attached.
Offline = port was taken offline by management.
No media installed = no SFP installed.
Link down = SFP is installed but with no link established.
Link up = SFP is installed and a link to the device is established.
Link active = SFP is installed, a link to the device is established, and
traffic is flowing.
Isolated = it is understood that the other port is an E-port but complete
initialization cannot be established.
Media Type
Displays the media type plugged into the port or that no media interface
is installed.
Detected Port Type
Indicates the current port configuration as an F-port, FL-port or E-port,
or other type port.
Set Port Type
Allows you to configure the port as one of the following: F-port, FL-port,
E-port, Auto

Parameters
Description
Port Speed
Displays and allows you to select these values:
1 Gigabit = Port is set to operate at 1Gbps
2 Gigabit = Port is set to operate at 2Gbps
Auto = Port will determine the operating speed of the attached device
(1Gbps or 2Gbps) and operate at that speed
Port Cost (100-5000)
Allow you to tune or manually configure routing.
Port cost is used by routing in the shortest path calculation. Each
switch-to-switch connection is assigned a ‘cost’ based on the shortest
path calculation. The assigned path is determined by the smallest cost.
You will only change this value if you want to tune or manually configure
the routing (to force routing to select a different path). However, you
may wish to modify the cost value if you know the distance on one port
is much greater than on another port or if you know the port speeds are
different (1Gb vs. 2Gb).
Port Heartbeat (5-50)
Allows you to manually adjust the number of times a heartbeat signal is
missed before routing decides the switch is not longer present. Port
heartbeat is used by routing to verify that a switch is still present.
Port Reset
Use the scroll-bar at the right side of the panel to bring this option into
view. Port Reset allows you to reset the port to the previously set
parameters. Click the Reset Port to return to the previous port settings.

Parameter
Description
Switch Role
Displays whether switch is configured as the Principal switch or a Subordinate
switch in the Fabric.
Name
Displays the system-generated switch name:
•
Switch installed in slot 1: MSA1000 name-switch1
•
Switch installed in slot 2: MSA1000 name-switch2
Priority (1-255)
This parameter allows you to determine the priority that this switch will have
compared to other devices if it requests Fabric resources at the same time as
other devices. The variable is used during the SW-2 principal switch selection
process. Any number between 1 and 255 can be used for this setting. A lower
number results in a higher priority for the switch. The switch with the lowest
priority number will become the principal switch. If two switches have the same
“lowest priority number”, then the switch with the lowest WWN number will
become the principal switch.
A priority 1 forces the switch to be principal; a priority 255 will never allow the
switch to be principal switch. Priority 2 is reserved for the current elected
principal switch. The principal switch will change its priority to 2 if its priority is
greater than 2.
Desired Domain
(1-239)
Any number between 1 and 239. For inter operability, each switch in a Fabric
must have a different domain number. You can specify the desired domain.
However, the actual domain that is set may be different (for example, if the
domain is already in use). This domain number is used during SW-2 principal
switch selection.
Actual Domain
Displays the current domain.
Address
Translation
Address translation allows you to address devices with private addresses
through the Fabric. The port must be private for this to function. Choose the
correct radio button to turn address translation on or off. This is limited to private
targets.

Parameter
Description
Send Fabric Address
Notification
Fabric Address Notification (FAN) frames are sent by the Fabric to
notify public loop devices about their node ID and address. The default
setting is No.
Choosing Yes configures the switch to send Fabric Address
Notification frames.
Choosing No configures the switch to not send Fabric Address
Notification frames.
Force IOD State
Allows you to determine whether delivery of frames is completed inorder or out-of-order. Out-of-order delivery can happen when a trunk
failure occurs in the fabric and traffic is rerouted around the failure.
Choosing On enables Forced In Order delivery when the fabric
topology is changed. Use with care as enabling this feature will cause
a delay when a trunk failure occurs.
Choosing Off disables Force In Order delivery and allows out-of-order
delivery. Note that some legacy devices cannot handle out-of-order
delivery and will require that this feature be enabled on all switches.
Forced IOD Delay (1-60
sec.)
This is the delay time for Force In Order Delivery (if enabled). It
specifies the delay time before rerouting traffic to an alternative trunk.
The minimum delay time is 1 second; the maximum delay is 60
seconds. Set this parameter to greater than the E_D_TOV time of the
legacy device that requires in order delivery.
Reset Switch
This allows you to reset the switch. Use with caution as this will disrupt
switch operations.
Restore Factory Defaults
Restores the settings enabled at the factory.

Depending on the icon selected in the tree, the Device View provides the following
information about the switch, the ports, or the devices connected to the switch.
Selecting members from the tree acts like a list filter. Selecting the switch in the tree
will list information about all the devices connected to the switch. Selecting a port in
the tree will list information about the selected port only. Selecting a device in the
tree will list information about the selected device only.

Table 3-16: Session Configuration Window
Parameter
Description
Polling Rate
This setting allows you to specify the rate for detecting the changes of devices in
the network or changes in the device environment status. Valid values are 13600(sec).
Timeout
When the Fabric Management Utility issues a request to a managed device, if the
device fails to respond, it waits for a specified number of milliseconds and then
retries its request. This parameter sets the amount of time that the switch utility
waits before it retries its request. Valid values are 500-5000 (ms).
The timeout for each retry is increased exponentially. For example, if the timeout
value is set to 5000 ms and retry is set to 2:
•
The initial attempt will time out in 5000 ms.
•
The first retry will time out in 10000 ms.
•
The second retry will time out in 20000 ms.
Compaq recommends that you set the retry count low if the timeout value is high.

•
FC-SW-2
•
FC-GS3
•
FC-MI

MSA Fabric Switch 6 Management Utility
This section describes the zoning functions supported by the MSA Fabric Switch 6. It
describes zoning at the individual switch and describes how the merge command
functions are used to support zoning across a Fabric.
Zoning Elements
Before setting up zoning, you must understand the following zoning elements:
•
Zone Members
•
Zones
•
Zone Sets
CAUTION: Never add a zoned switch to an established fabric that has no zoning. If
a switch configured with zoning is added to a fabric that has no configured zoning,
the fabric’s HBAs and targets will no longer be able to communicate and the traffic in
the fabric will be disrupted. For best results, only add a switch configured with zoning
to a fabric configured with the same zoning configuration.
Zone Members
Zone members are Fibre Channel edge devices that are identified by their World
Wide Port Name (WWPN). Any device that you want to include in a zone must be
identified as a zone member. While internally the zone members are tracked by their
WWPN, you can create a Zone Member Name that acts as an alias for the device.
This makes it easier to identify the devices during configuration and operation. The
following are examples of Fibre Channel devices that can be named as zone
members:
•
Servers
•
Raid systems
•
Disk drives
•
Tape libraries
IMPORTANT: The World Wide Node Name (WWNN) of the Fibre Channel device cannot be
used to create a zone member. WWNN-bases zoning is expressly prohibited in the FC-MI
standard. Use World Wide Port Name (WWPN) to create a zone member.

MSA Fabric Switch 6 Management Utility
Zones
Zones are logical entities that represent groupings of zone members. Each zone must
be assigned a unique zone name when it is defined.
Zone Sets
Zone sets are logical entities that represent groupings of zones. They define a zoning
configuration. Each zone set is assigned a unique zone set name when it is defined.
The MSA Fabric Switch 6 allows storing of multiple zone sets. However, only one of
these zone sets can be active at a time. The other zone sets can be used as backup,
trials, or other user-defined configurations.
Naming Rules for Zone Members, Zones, and Zone Sets
Zone member, zone, and zone set names must follow these rules:
3-52
•
Names must be between 1 and 64 characters long
•
Characters used in names must be 7 bit ASCII characters
•
The first character of a name must be a letter (a-z) and can be either upper case or
lower case
•
Other characters of the name (any characters besides the first character) can be a
letter (a-z, either upper or lower case), a number (0-9), or a symbol ($ - ^ _).
•
No spaces are allowed in the name

Troubleshooting the MSA Fabric Switch 6
If there is a problem accessing a device connected to the MSA Fabric Switch 6, the
source of the problem can be with the device, the switch, the host, or any of the
connections between the host and device. Follow the steps outlined below to
investigate the problem. The following is a description of possible symptoms:
1. Check the Global Status Indicator for power. The unit may not be plugged into
the Modular SAN Array 1000 correctly.
2. Inspect the switch fault indicators for apparent problems. If the fault indicators
are on, the switch may be faulty or the temperature may be out of defined limits.
3. Inspect the cabling between the switch and attached Fibre Channel devices.
Check for loose, dirty, broken, or bent cabling and connectors. If a Compaqsupported Small Form Factor Pluggable transceiver (SFP) is in use, check that it
is properly inserted and that the cable is properly seated.
4. Check the port status indicators.
Reading the Global Status Indicator
The indicators provide information about the status of the switch. This should be
used as the first stage in troubleshooting. If either the serial or the Ethernet link to the
switch is running, use the appropriate Command Line Interface command (See
Appendix C, “Command Line Interface,” for the appropriate command). The Global
Status Indicator indicators can be interpreted by reviewing Table 4-1.

Compaq-supported Small Form Factor Pluggables (SFP)
Use caution when handling SFPs. Take normal precautions to protect them from a
static electrical discharge and any other damage:
IMPORTANT: Always wear an anti-static wrist strap when handling Compaq-supported SFPs.
They are static sensitive.
•
Leave the device in its anti-static bag until ready to install it.
•
Hold the SFP by its edges and handle it carefully.
•
Always follow the Compaq-supported SFP manufacturer’s recommended
procedures for cleaning the SFP. This is especially true of the type of solvent
used for cleaning optical surfaces.
IMPORTANT: Do not install any SFP that appears physically damaged. This may result in
permanent damage to the switch. Keep unused SFP connectors covered with the plugs that
are shipped with them to prevent contamination from obscuring or attenuating the light signals.
Fibre Channel Cables
The MSA Fabric Switch 6 uses Fibre Channel cables to communicate with end-node
devices. Loose or broken cables can cause a number of problems. Inspect the cabling
between the MSA Fabric Switch 6 and attached Fibre Channel devices. Check for
loose, dirty, broken, or bent cabling and connectors.
•
Inspect the switch fault indicators for apparent problems.
•
Check that the Compaq-supported SFP is properly inserted.
•
Check the port status indicators.
•
Check to see if the indicator located next to the special Fibre Channel interface
cable connector is lit. If it is not, a viable connection to the Fibre Channel
network has not been established.

Temperature Control
The MSA Fabric Switch 6 is designed to work in a normal room temperature
environment, between 10º and 40º C (50º F to 104 º F).
Preventive Maintenance Solutions
To protect the switch for longer use, Compaq recommends the following:
•
Periodically vacuum the external surfaces of the switch to remove dust.
•
Do not drop fiber optic cable connectors onto hard surfaces. This can cause
internal glass fractures and intermittent signals.
•
Keep unused cable ends covered to prevent contamination from obscuring or
attenuating the light signals.
IMPORTANT: Always use an anti-static wrist strap while handling SFPs. These are
static-sensitive devices.

Regulatory Compliance Notices
Federal Communications Commission Notice
Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Rules and Regulations
has established Radio Frequency (RF) emission limits to provide an interference-free
radio frequency spectrum. Many electronic devices, including computers, generate
RF energy incidental to their intended function and are, therefore, covered by these
rules. These rules place computers and related peripheral devices into two classes, A
and B, depending upon their intended installation. Class A devices are those that may
reasonably be expected to be installed in a business or commercial environment.
Class B devices are those that may reasonably be expected to be installed in a
residential environment (personal computers, for example). The FCC requires
devices in both classes to bear a label indicating the interference potential of the
device as well as additional operating instructions for the user.
The rating label on the device shows which class (A or B) the equipment falls into.
Class B devices have an FCC logo or FCC ID on the label. Class A devices do not
have an FCC ID on the label.

Electrostatic Discharge
To prevent damage to the system, be aware of the precautions you need to follow
when setting up the system or handling parts. A discharge of static electricity from a
finger or other conductor may damage system boards or other static-sensitive
devices. This type of damage may reduce the life expectancy of the device.
To prevent electrostatic damage, observe the following precautions:
•
Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe containers.
•
Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free
workstations.
•
Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their containers.
•
Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.
•
Always make sure you are properly grounded when touching a
static-sensitive component or assembly.

Electrostatic Discharge
Grounding Methods
There are several methods for grounding. Use one or more of the following methods
when handling or installing electrostatic-sensitive parts:
•
Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded workstation or
computer chassis. Wrist straps are flexible straps with a minimum of 1 megohm
± 10 percent resistance in the ground cords. To provide proper ground, wear the
strap snug against the skin.
•
Use heel straps, toe straps, or boot straps at standing workstations. Wear the
straps on both feet when standing on conductive floors or dissipating floor mats.
•
Use conductive field service tools.
•
Use a portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating
work mat.
If you do not have any of the suggested equipment for proper grounding, have an
Authorized Compaq Reseller install the part.
NOTE: For more information on static electricity, or for assistance with product installation,
contact your Compaq authorized reseller.

Command Line Interface
Most of the configuration commands used to set up and maintain the MSA Fabric
Switch 6 can be controlled from the main menu’s first two options: Networking
Parameters and Management. For more advanced functions, the MSA Fabric
Switch 6 Management Utility offers a further level of complexity. This more
advanced level of parameters operates from a command line interface (CLI).
This chapter includes information on:
•
Invoking the Command Line Interface
•
Using the Command Line Interface
•
Setting up Zoning
The table below provides an overview of the commands available through the CLI.

Using the Command Line Interface
The CLI is a general-purpose ASCII line interface separated by carriage returns. The
syntax can best be seen by typing “help.” More detailed information is available by
typing “help” followed by a command name, as shown below:
cmd> help command_name
Figure C-2: Help menu
By typing the Help command, you can access a list of all available commands along
with a brief overview of the syntax. In addition, it is possible to assign values to
various parameters by using the equal sign separated by spaces.

The Exit command of the CLI returns the user to the main menu. The Exit
command can be distinguished from the Logout command in that the user does not
exit the program but remains logged in and retains the ability to select a new item
from the main menu.
Reset
This command resets the switch.

Config
This command displays and modifies the switch configuration backup and
configuration restore settings. It also activates the backup and restore function.
Configuration backup writes the switch’s configuration files to files specified by
“file” on the TFTP server specified by the IP address. Configuration restore
reconfigures the switch based on the files specified by “file “ from the TFTP server
specified by the IP address.
NOTE: When using the “backup” feature, some TFTP servers may not overwrite existing files.
These TFTP servers will create a new file with modified filenames, resulting in “restore” not
retrieving the expected file.

Setting up Zoning
Zoning is a function of the MSA Fabric Switch 6 that allows you to create isolated
Fibre Channel networks with a limited number of connected devices. By limiting the
number of devices in a zone, you can obtain more robust performance and enhance
your access protection.
Zoning is compliant with the following standards:
•
FC-SW-2
•
FC-GS3
•
FC-MI
This section describes the zoning functions supported by the MSA Fabric Switch 6. It
describes zoning at the individual switch and describes how the merge command
functions are used to support zoning across a Fabric.
Zoning Elements
Before performing zoning, you must understand the following zoning elements:
•
Zone Members
•
Zones
•
Zone Sets
CAUTION: Never add a zoned switch to an established fabric that has no zoning. If
a switch configured with zoning is added to a fabric that has no configured zoning,
the fabric’s HBAs and targets will no longer be able to communicate and the traffic in
the fabric will be disrupted. For best results, only add a switch configured with zoning
to a fabric configured with same zoning configuration.

Command Line Interface
Zone Members
Zone members are Fibre Channel edge devices that are identified by their World
Wide Port Name (WWPN). Any device that you want to include in a zone must be
identified as a zone member. While internally the zone members are tracked by their
WWPN, you can create a Zone Member Name that acts as an alias for the device.
This makes it easier to identify the devices during configuration and operation. The
following are examples of Fibre Channel devices that can be named as zone
members:
•
Servers
•
Raid systems
•
Disk drives
•
Tape libraries
IMPORTANT: The World Wide Node Name (WWNN) of the Fibre Channel device cannot be
used to create a zone member. WWNN-bases zoning is expressly prohibited in the FC-MI
standard. Use World Wide Port Name (WWPN) to create a zone member.
Zones
Zones are logical entities that represent groupings of zone members. Each zone must
assigned a unique zone name when it is defined.
Zone Sets
Zone sets are logical entities that represent groupings of zones. They define a zoning
configuration. Each zone set is assigned a unique zone set name when it is defined.
The MSA Fabric Switch 6 allows storing of multiple zone sets. However, only one of
these zone sets can be active at a time. The other zone sets can be used as backup,
trials, or other user-defined configurations.

Naming Rules for Zone Members, Zones, and Zone Sets
Zone member, zone, and zone set names must follow these rules:
•
Names must be between 1 and 64 characters long
•
Characters used in names must be 7 bit ASCII characters
•
The first character of a name must be a letter (a-z) and can be either upper case or
lower case
•
Other characters of the name (any characters besides the first character) can be a
letter (a-z, either upper or lower case), a number (0-9), or a symbol ( $ - ^ _).
•
No spaces are allowed in the name
Zoning Limitations for Zone Members, Zones, and Zone Sets
There are zoning limitations for individual switches and fabrics. See Table C-3 for
maximum limitations.

Using the CLI to Configure Zoning
This section describes how to use the CLI to configure zone members, zones, and
zone sets and apply the new or edited zone configurations to the switch.
To ensure uninterrupted operation of the MSA Fabric Switch 6, a three-stage process
was developed for configuring zoning using CLI:
•
Stage one: creating the pending table
•
Stage two: verifying the zoning configuration in the pending table
•
Stage three: writing the pending table to the active table
The zoning configuration procedures are detailed in the following paragraphs and use
the following scenario.
Assume the following:
•
Server1 needs to access Disk1 exclusively for Operating System boot (OS Boot).
•
Server1 needs to access Raid1 for shared storage.
•
Server1 needs to access Tape1 for backup.
•
Server2 needs to access Disk2 exclusively for Operating System boot.
•
Server2 needs to access Raid1 for shared storage.
•
Server2 needs to access Tape1 for backup.
Before you begin to configure your zoning, you must first define the zone members,
zones, and zone sets that you will need.
Table C-4 lists the zone members, zones, and zone sets being used in this example
and indicates what members the zones and the zone sets contain.

In this example, the Zone Set MIS_NT-CLSTR1_SAN1 contains two zones:
•
Web_Zone contains the following Zone Members: Server1, Disk1, RAID1, and
Tape1.
•
Mail_Zone contains the following Zone Members: Server2, Disk2, RAID1, and
Tape1.
Stage one: Creating the Pending Table
Before configuring the zoning, it is helpful to decide on the names you will use for
your zone sets, zones, and zone members.
During the configuration, you first create the largest group (zone sets), then create the
next largest group (zones), and last create the individual entities (zone members).
After you have created your zone members using their WWPN, you can assign more
user-friendly names to your zone members.

Viewing and Clearing the Pending Table
Start by checking what has already been created:
1. View the pending table.
cmd> zone pending
Inactive zoneset [set1] contains 1 zone (s)
zone [ntgroup1] contains 0 member(s)
Inactive Zoneset [set2] contains 1 zone(s)
zone [solaris1] contains 0 members)
Inactive zoneset [set3] contains 1 zone(s)
zone [ntgroup2] contains 0 member(s)
NOTE: You can also use abbreviated forms of CLI commands. For example, instead of using
“cmd> zone pending,” you can use “cmd> zn pn.” For a list of the CLI abbreviations,
type “help.”
2. Clear the existing pending table.
cmd> zone clear
Cleared pending zone configuration.
3. Display the pending table to verify that it was cleared.

Laser Precautions and
Fibre Channel Cables
Laser Precautions
WARNING: To reduce the risk of injury from laser radiation or damage to the
equipment, observe the following precautions:
•
Allow only Compaq Authorized Service Technicians to repair the
equipment.
•
Do not open any panels, operate controls, make adjustments, or perform
procedures to a laser device other than those specified herein.
•
Do not stare into laser beam when panels are open.
SFP and Fibre Channel Cable Connector Cleaning Considerations
Optics are susceptible to anything that hinders light transmission. Consequently,
manufacturers of both 2-Gb Small Form Factor Pluggable Transceiver modules
(SFP) and Fibre Channel Cable Connectors provide dust covers to protect the optical
areas and ensure optical signal integrity for initial system configuration. If the fiber
optic interconnects are disengaged, the optical tips can be soiled by human touch,
damaged from dropping, or simply collect dust debris when exposed to the open air
for extended time periods. A contaminated optic tip may not be visible to the naked
eye and could potentially degrade performance of your system.

Laser Precautions and Fibre Cables
To minimize the risk of optic contamination on your system, keep the following fibre
optic handling guidelines in mind:
•
Dust Covers: Dust Covers are provided with all optical components and should
be kept in place when not used. Do not throw away the dust covers after initial
installation. You may need them to protect optical interconnect areas if
reconfiguration is required.
•
When to Clean: The best rule of thumb for cleaning fiber optics is common
sense. If you have handled fiber optic interconnects and think there may be
contamination, clean it. If you need to use a fiber optic interconnect component
that is found without the dust covers in place, clean it.
•
How to Clean: First, wipe the optics with a lint-free tissue soaked in 100 percent
Isopropyl alcohol. Next, wipe optics with a dry lint-free tissue and dry with
compressed/canned air.
Fibre Channel Cable
The MSA Fabric Switch 6 is intended primarily for use with Shortwave SFPs and
multi-mode Fibre Channel cables. While Longwave SFPs can be used with 9 um
single-mode Fibre Channel cables, performance may not be optimal due to
transmission latencies.
SW-SFPs and Multi-mode Fibre Channel cables are capable of supporting distances
of 2 meters to 500 meters. These cables are for use with Shortwave SFPs only.
However, three multi-mode Fibre Channel cable option kits are available from
Compaq if longer lengths are desired. Each kit contains a multi-mode Fibre Channel
cable with a connector attached to each end. The Modular SAN Array 1000 storage
systems and associated host bus adapters ship standard with 2m and 5m Fibre
Channel cables, respectively. Other available kits are:
•
15-meter multi-mode Fibre Channel Cable option kit (part number 234457-B23)
•
30-meter multi-mode Fibre Channel Cable option kit (part number 234457-B24)
•
50-meter multi-mode Fibre Channel Cable option kit (part number 234457-B25)
To customize your system with multi-mode Fibre Channel cable at distances greater
than 50 meters, contact an independent Fibre Channel cable supplier.

Laser Precautions and Fibre Cables
If you are using an existing 62.5-micron cable in your infrastructure, you must obtain
a 62.5-micron jumper from an independent source. A 50-micron cable cannot be
spliced with a 62.5-micron cable.
CAUTION: Make certain the Fibre Channel cables are installed and supported so
that no excess weight is placed on the Fibre Channel connectors. This is necessary
to prevent damage to the connector and cable and to prevent a cable bend radius
less than 3 inches (7.62 cm) at the connector and along the cable length. Excess
Fibre Channel cable should be coiled and tied out of the way, being careful not to coil
the cable in a tight loop with a bend radius of less than 3 inches (7.62 cm).

Updating the Fabric Switch MSA Fabric Switch
6 Management Utility
The MSA Fabric Switch 6 embedded device management program is referred to as
the MSA Fabric Switch 6 Management Utility. The baseline software management
capabilities for the MSA Fabric Switch 6 can be accessed several different ways. For
the latest version of MSA Fabric Switch 6 Management Utility as well as additional
upgrading options refer to the Compaq website: www.compaq.com/storageworks, or
the MSASW6.txt file on the Modular SAN Array 1000 Support Software
CD-ROM.
Finding the MSA Fabric Switch 6 Management Utility Version
Number
The current version of the MSA Fabric Switch 6 Management Utility is displayed on
the MSA Fabric Switch 6, Device Summary tab. It can also be found on the main
menu of the command line interface, labeled “StorageWorks MSA Fabric Switch 6
Management Utility.” The MSA Fabric Switch 6 Management Utility contains the
embedded agents used by the MSA Fabric Switch 6.

Updating the Fabric Switch MSA Fabric Switch 6 Management Utility
Updating the Switch using the Web Browser Interface
To update the switch using the web browser interface under the MSA Fabric Switch
6 Service tab, see Chapter 3, “MSA Fabric Switch 6 Management Utility.”
Use this screen to set the switch’s parameter and to start the download.
IMPORTANT: The MSA Fabric Switch 6’s IP address and other networking parameters must
be properly set for the download to work.

the TFTP daemon. The IP address field does not have the ability to resolve host
names.
The Management Utility file name must be changed to match the name of the MSA
Fabric Switch 6 Management Utility update file. The Management Utility Boot File
is automatically extracted from the download file by the MSA Fabric Switch 6 once
the transfer is complete. The boot file name needs to be set for a successful update.
Typically, both the timeout and retry parameters do not require resetting unless the
network used is overloaded with other traffic.
With all fields completed correctly and the TFTP daemon running, click on
“Download” to initiate the transfer. The MSA Fabric Switch 6 Management Utility
will report the success or failure of the update.
With all parameters completed correctly and the download completed, reset the

Updating the Fabric Switch MSA Fabric Switch 6 Management Utility
The download file name must be changed to match the name of the MSA Fabric
Switch 6 Management Utility update. The boot file is automatically extracted from
the download file by the StorageWorks MSA Fabric Switch 6 once the transfer is
complete. The boot file name needs to be set for a successful update. This will be
provided along with the download file at the Compaq website:
www.compaq.com/storageworks.
Typically, both the timeout and retry parameters do not require resetting unless the
network used is overloaded with other traffic.
Once the transfer is initiated, the MSA Fabric Switch 6 Management Utility package
number is compared with the package already resident in the MSA Fabric Switch 6.
If the MSA Fabric Switch 6 Management Utility being downloaded is newer and
appears compatible, the download status will be set to “in progress” and remains so
until the transfer is complete. Once the MSA Fabric Switch 6 Management Utility is
updated, the system reboots itself to initialize the new MSA Fabric Switch 6
Management Utility and changes the status to “complete.”
If the MSA Fabric Switch 6 Management Utility being downloaded is older than the
present or incompatible with the system, the MSA Fabric Switch 6 stops the transfer
and sets the download status to “rejected due to incompatible package versions.”
With all parameters completed correctly and the download completed, reset the
switch. The update will occur automatically following the reset.

null modem connected and HyperTerminal running, reset the switch. To access the
Boot Menu, you must press the Enter key when prompted; this occurs within the first
few seconds following the reset.
The IP address shown for the TFTP server IP address (4.) must be changed to the IP
address running the TFTP daemon. The IP address field does not have the ability to
resolve host names.
The download file name must be changed to match the name of the MSA Fabric
Switch 6 Management Utility update. The file is automatically extracted from the
download file by the MSA Fabric Switch 6 once the transfer is complete.
Typically, both the timeout and retry parameters do not require resetting unless the
network used is overloaded with other traffic.
With all parameters completed correctly and the download completed, choose “0” to
exit the boot menu and reset the switch. The update will occur automatically
following the reset.
