Information about the Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender for HP
The Cisco Nexus product line simplifies datacenter operations in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
The Cisco Nexus product line transforms the data center with innovative, standards-based, multilayer,
multiprotocol, and multipurpose Ethernet-based fabric. These products enable any transport over
Ethernet, including Layer 2 and Layer 3 traffic, and storage traffic, all on one common data center-class
platform.
The Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extenders behave as remote line cards for a parent Cisco Nexus 5000 Series
switch. The Fabric Extenders are essentially extensions of the parent Cisco Nexus switch fabric, with
the Fabric Extenders and the parent Cisco Nexus switch together forming a distributed modular system.
Up to 24 Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extenders can be connected to a single Nexus 5000 Series switch,
allowing a single distributed modular system to scale to 384 HP blade servers.

Consider these prerequisites before you install the switch module:
•
Fill any unoccupied interconnect bays or any unoccupied power module bays in the blade
enclosure with blanks.
•
Identify the bays in which you will insert the switch modules. Plan to install the first switch module
in bay 1, the second in bay 2, and so on up to bay 8, if possible. The bay in which you choose to
install each switch module depends on whether mezzanine or Ethernet cards are installed in the
blade enclosure and how they are configured. See the blade enclosure documentation information
about installing and configuring the mezzanine or Ethernet cards.
•
See the HP c-Class or HP Integrity Superdome 2 documentation for information on the port mapping
between blade enclosures and the switch modules.

Updating NX-OS
To achieve the best performance, HP recommends updating to the latest NX-OS software version.
The Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender for HP downloads the necessary firmware from the connected
Cisco Nexus 5x00 switch. You can update the Cisco Nexus 5x00 Switch without any disruptions using
the install all command. Contact the company from whom your Cisco Nexus 5x00 Switch was
purchased.
For units purchased through HP, see the HP StorageWorks Single Point of Connectivity Knowledge
(SPOCK) website at www.hp.com/storage/spock for the latest HP supported NX-OS version.
Obtain the most current NX-OS software from the HP Support Center website:
http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/public
You can download NX-OS software from the Cisco website:
http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/navigator.html?mdfid=282076290&i=rm
If your units are purchased through Cisco, see Cisco Nexus 5000 Series NX-OS Software Upgrade and
Downgrade Guide for instructions on how to download NX-OS from Cisco.
The Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender for HP is managed by its parent Cisco Nexus 5000 Series switch
over the fabric interfaces through a zero-touch configuration model. You upgrade the Fabric Extender by
upgrading the software on the parent Cisco Nexus 5000 Series switch.
When a Fabric Extender is properly associated with a parent switch, the following upgrade operations
are performed:
Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender for HP Getting Started Guide
6
Configuring the Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender for HP
•
The switch checks the software image compatibility and upgrades the Fabric Extender if necessary.
•
The switch pushes the configuration data to the fabric extender. The Fabric Extender does not store
any configuration locally.
•
The Fabric Extender updates the switch with its operational status. All fabric extender information
is displayed using the switch commands for monitoring and troubleshooting.
In-Service Software Upgrades (ISSUs) are supported on the Cisco Nexus 5000 Series switches. An ISSU
can update the software images on your device without disrupting data traffic. An ISSU updates the
Kickstart, System, and Fabric Extender image.
The install all command triggers the ISSU on Cisco Nexus 5000 Series switches and the Cisco Nexus
B22 Fabric Extender for HP. The command provides the following benefits:
•
You can upgrade the Cisco Nexus 5000 Series switches and the Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender
for HP using just one command.
•
You can receive descriptive information about the intended changes to your system before you
continue with the installation. For example, it identifies potential disruptive upgrades.
•
You can continue or cancel the upgrade when you see this question (the default is no):
Do you want to continue (y/n) [n] : y
•
You can upgrade the Cisco NX-OS software using a nondisruptive procedure.
•
The command automatically checks the image integrity, which includes the running kickstart and
system images. The command sets the kickstart and system boot variables.
•
The command performs a platform validity check to verify that a wrong image is not used.
•
The Ctrl-c escape sequence gracefully ends the install all command. The command sequence
completes the update step in progress and returns to the EXEC prompt.
•
After issuing the install all command, if any step in the sequence fails, the upgrade ends.
•
The following message appears to warn you about the impact of upgrading the power sequencer:
Warning: please do not remove or power off the module at this time. 
Note: Power-seq upgrade needs a power-cycle to take into effect.
On success of power-seq upgrade, SWITCH OFF THE POWER to the system and then, power it
up.
•
You can force a disruptive upgrade.
For additional information, see the Cisco Nexus 5000 Series NX-OS Software Upgrade and Downgrade
Guide.

Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender for HP Getting Started Guide
10
Configuring the Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender for HP
Caution
Changing the number of uplinks with the pinning max-links command or the no pinning max-links
command disrupts all the host interface ports of the Fabric Extender.
Redistributing the Links
When you provision the Fabric Extender with statically pinned interfaces, the downlink host interfaces
on the Fabric Extender are pinned to the fabric interfaces in the order they were initially configured. If
you want to maintain a specific relationship of host interfaces to fabric interface across reboots, you
should re-pin the links.
You may want to perform this function in these two situations:
•
A change in the max-links configuration.
•
If you need to maintain the pinning order of host interfaces to fabric interfaces.
Changing the Number of Links
If you initially configured port 19 on the parent switch as your only fabric interface, all 16 host interfaces
are pinned to this port. If you provision another port, for example 20, then you must enter the pinning
max-links 2 command to redistribute the host interfaces. All host interfaces are brought down and host
interfaces 1 to 8 are pinned to fabric interface 19 and host interfaces 9 to 16 are pinned to fabric interface
20.
Maintaining the Pinning Order
The pinning order of the host interfaces is initially determined by the order in which the fabric interfaces
were configured. In this example, four fabric interfaces were configured in the following order:
switch(config-fex)#
switch(config-fex)#

Configuring the Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender for HP
The next time that you reboot the Fabric Extender, the configured fabric interfaces are pinned to the host
interfaces in an ascending order by port number of the fabric interface. If you want to configure the same
fixed distribution of host interfaces without restarting the Fabric Extender, enter the fex pinning
redistribute command.
To redistribute the host interfaces on the Fabric Extender, perform this task:
Command
Purpose
switch# fex pinning redistribute chassis
Redistributes the host connections. The range of the
chassis ID is from 100 to 199.
This example shows how to redistribute the host interfaces on a Fabric Extender:
switch# fex pinning redistribute 100 
Caution
The fex pinning redistribute command disrupts all the host interface ports of the Fabric Extender.

Verifying the Configuration
The Onboard Administrator (OA) is the management module used to support and manage the HP
BladeSystem c-Class enclosure or the HP Integrity Superdome 2 and all the devices used in the
enclosure. Once the switch is installed in the interconnect bay, the OA verifies that the switch type
matches the mezzanine cards present on the server blades. If there is no mismatch, the OA powers on the
switch. If the switch does not power on, check the enclosure and switch status using the OA web
interface. For more information and troubleshooting tips, see the HP BladeSystem Onboard
Administrator User Guide or the or the HP Integrity Superdome 2 Onboard Administrator User Guide.
To verify the configuration,
1.
Locate the LEDs. See Figure 6.
