Installing the Switch
Planning the system’s placement in the rack
Before mounting the system to the rack, select the way
you wish to place the system. Pay attention to the airflow
within the rack cooling, connector and cabling options.
While planning how to place the system, consider the
two installation options shown in Figure 2, and review the
following points:
• Make sure the system air flow is compatible with your installation selection. It is important to keep the airflow within the rack in
the same direction.
• Note that the part of the system to which you choose to attach
the rails (the front panel direction, as demonstrated in Option 1 or
the FRUs direction, as demonstrated in Option 2) will determine the
system’s adjustable side. The system’s part to which the brackets
are attached, will be adjacent to the cabinet.
• The FRU side is extractable. Mounting the rack brackets
inverted to the FRU side (Option 2), will allow you to slide the
FRUs, in and out.

1. Attach the left and right rack mount rails (A) to the switch, by gently pushing the switch chassis’
pins through the slider key holes, until locking occurs. Secure the chassis in the rails, screwing
2 flat head Phillips screws (E) in the designated points. See Figure 3.

2. Attach the left and right rack mount brackets (B) to the switch, by gently pushing the switch
chassis’ pins through the slider key holes, until locking occurs. Secure the system in the brackets by screwing the remaining 2 flat head Phillips screws (E). See Figure 4.

Grounding the Switch
1. Make sure that the rack is properly grounded and that there is a valid ground connection
between the chassis of the switch and the rack. Test the ground using an Ohm meter.
2. Some national and/or local codes may require IT components to be bonded and externally
grounded (not including the power cord ground). You must follow all national and local codes
when installing this equipment.
Connecting Switch to Power
3. Install 8 cage nuts in the desired 1U slots of the rack: 4 cage nuts in the non-extractable side
and 4 cage nuts in the extractable side. Note that while each rack U (unit) consists of three
holes, the cage nut should be installed vertically with its ears engaging the top and bottom
holes only.
1. Plug in the power cables.
While your installation partner is supporting the system’s weight, perform Steps 4-6:
3. You can start connecting all of the cables to the switch..
4. Mount the system into the rack enclosure and attach the brackets installed on the system to the
rack’s posts. Secure the brackets to the rack’s posts by inserting four M6 screws in the designated cage nuts. See Figure 5. Do not tighten the screws yet.
5. Slide the two blades into the left and right rails (see Figure 6), and adjust them to fit your rack's
depth. Use four M6 screws (D) to fix the blades into the rack. Do not tighten the screws yet.
6. Secure the system in the rack by tightening the 8 screws inserted in Step 4 and Step 5 with a
torque of Min 2Nm.

2. Check the Status LEDs and confirm that all of the LEDs show status lights consistent with normal operation
Any yellow or red status LEDs are cause for concern and must be dealt with immediately.
It can take up to 5 minutes to boot up, during which time the status LED may indicate red.
Configuring the System
This section provides the initial configuration steps for the switch.
1. Connect the host PC to the Console (RJ-45) port of the switch system using the supplied cable.
The Console ports for the switches are shown below as examples.
Figure 7: The Switch Console Port
Connect the host PC
to the Console port.
Make sure to connect to the Console RJ-45 port of the switch and not to the (Ethernet) MGT
port(s).
No remote IP connection is available at this stage.
2. Configure a serial terminal program (for example, HyperTerminal, minicom, or Tera Term) on
your host PC with the settings described in Table 1.
Table 2 - Configuration Wizard Session - IP Configuration by DHCP Example

Step 6: Admin password (Press <Enter> To avoid illegal access to the machine, please type a password and
to leave unchanged)? <new_password> then press <Enter>. Then confirm the password by re-entering it.

3. Log in (from a serial terminal program) as admin and using “admin” as the password to start the
Mellanox configuration wizard.
4. Go through the Mellanox configuration wizard. Table 2 shows an examples of DHCP, zeroconf,
and static IP wizard sessions.

configuration? yes
Step 1: Hostname? [switch]
If you wish to accept the default hostname, then press <Enter>. Otherwise, type a different hostname and press <Enter>.
Step 2: Use DHCP on mgmt0 interface? Perform this step to obtain an IP address for the switch. (mgmt0 is the
[no] yes
management port of the switch.)
If you wish the DHCP server to assign the IP address, type ‘yes’ and
press <Enter>.
If you type ‘no’ (no DHCP), then you will be asked whether you wish to
use the ‘zeroconf’ configuration or not.
If you enter ‘no’ (no Zeroconf), then you need to enter a static IP, and
the session will continue.
Step 3: Enable IPv6? [yes]
The management interface will be able to use IPv6 addresses.
Step 4: Enable IPv6 auto-config
(SLAAC) on mgmt0 interface? [no]
This turns on auto-configuration of the IPv6 addresses. This is unsuitable for DHCPv6.
Step 5: Enable DHCPv6 on mgmt0 inter- To enable DHCPv6 on the MGMT0 interface.

5. Before attempting a remote (for example, SSH) connection to the switch, check the mgmt0
interface configuration. Specifically, verify the existence of an IP address. To check the current
mgmt0 configuration, enter the following commands:
switch > enable
switch # configure terminal
switch (config) # show interfaces mgmt0
6. Run the command:
show version
7. Compare the results of this command with the latest version for your switch posted on the support page for your switch.
