Brocade 6520 overview
The Brocade 6520 is a 96-port auto-sensing 2, 4, 8, or 16 Gbps, as well as 10 Gbps, Fibre Channel
(FC) switch that delivers the latest Brocade multi-chip architecture for Fibre Channel Storage Area
Networks (SANs). The Brocade 6520 is an enterprise-class switch that is designed to handle the
large-scale SAN requirements of an enterprise, and can also be used to address the SAN
requirements of a small to medium-sized workgroup.
The Brocade 6520 provides up to 96 ports in a double height (2U) switch that enables the creation
of very dense fabrics in a relatively small space.
The Brocade 6520 offers Ports on Demand (POD) licensing as well. “Base” models of the switch
contain 48 ports, and up to two additional 24-port POD licenses can be purchased to fill all 96
ports.
Port activation works through a process called Dynamic Ports on Demand (DPOD). With DPOD,
ports are licensed as they come online. For instance, if you have a base model with 48 port
licenses, the first 48 ports to come online, regardless of their numbering, are licensed. Once all the
licenses have been assigned, you can manually move those licenses from one port to another if
you choose.
The first eight ports can be configured to run at 10 Gbps with the appropriate licensing.
The Brocade 6520 supplies Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability (RAS) performance and
scalability requirements of an enterprise switch along with interoperability and ease-of-use
advantages.
The Brocade 6520 is only 24 inches deep and has airflow direction options. You can order either
port side exhaust (the default configuration) or non-port side exhaust airflow to accommodate
specific installations.
Brocade 6520 features and capabilities
The Brocade 6520 offers the following features and capabilities:
• Up to 96 auto-sensing ports of high-performance 16 Gbps technology in a single domain.
• Ports on Demand scaling from 48 to 72 or 96 ports.
• Port licensing via DPOD

Installation and safety considerations
Environmental considerations
For successful installation and operation of the switch, ensure that the following environmental
requirements are met:
• At a minimum, adequate cooling requires that you install the switch with the intake side, as
indicated by the airflow direction of the fan assemblies, facing the cool-air aisle.
The chassisshow output indicates “Reverse” for non-port side intake and “Forward” for port
side intake.
• All equipment in the rack should force air in the same direction to avoid intake of exhaust air.
• Airflow requirements outlined in Table 5 must be met. Note that the requirements differ based
on the direction of the airflow.
• The ambient air temperature does not exceed 40°C (104°F) while the switch is operating.
Table 5 lists the acceptable environmental ranges for both operating and nonoperating (such as
during transportation or storage) conditions.

Rack considerations
For successful installation and operation of the switch in a rack, ensure the following rack
requirements are met:
• The rack must be a standard EIA rack.
• A rack space that is two rack units (2U) high; 8.90 cm (3.50 inches) high and 48.3 cm (19
inches) wide.
• There are three rack kit options that accommodate the Brocade 6520, a four-post fixed rack
kit, a two-post Telco rack kit, and a four-post sliding rail rack kit. See their respective
installation manuals for details.

Brocade 6520 Hardware Reference Manual
53-1002705-01
Installation and safety considerations

• The equipment in the rack is grounded through a reliable branch circuit connection and
maintains ground at all times. Do not rely on a secondary connection to a branch circuit, such
as a power strip.
• Airflow and temperature requirements are met on an ongoing basis, particularly if the switch is
installed in a closed or multirack assembly.
• The additional weight of the switch does not exceed the rack’s weight limits or unbalance the
rack in any way.
• The rack is secured to ensure stability in case of unexpected movement, such as an
earthquake.
Recommendations for cable management
The minimum bend radius for a 50 micron cable is 2 inches under full tensile load and 1.2 inches
with no tensile load.
Cables can be organized and managed in a variety of ways; for example, using cable channels on
the sides of the rack or patch panels to reduce potential tangling of the cables. The following list
proveides some recommendations for cable management:
NOTE
You should not use tie wraps with optical cables because they are easily overtightened and can
damage the optic fibers.
• Plan for rack space required for cable management before installing the switch.
• Leave at least 1 m (3.28 ft) of slack for each port cable. This provides room to remove and
replace the switch, allows for inadvertent movement of the rack, and helps prevent the cables
from being bent to less than the minimum bend radius.
• If you are using Brocade ISL Trunking, consider grouping cables by trunking groups. The cables
used in trunking groups must meet specific requirements, as described in the Fabric OS
Administrator’s Guide.
• For easier maintenance, label the fiber-optic cables and record the devices to which they are
connected.
• Keep LEDs visible by routing port cables and other cables away from the LEDs.
• Use Velcro-style straps to secure and organize fiber-optic cables.
Items required for installation
The following items are required for installing, configuring, and connecting the Brocade 6520 for
use in a network and fabric:
•
•
•
•

1. Connect the power cords first to both power supplies in the chassis and then to power sources
on separate circuits to protect against AC failure. Ensure that the cords have a minimum
service loop of 6 inches available and are routed to avoid stress.
The power supplies power up as soon as they are plugged in. The power supply LEDs display
green. The power LED on the front of the switch turn green as well. The system status LED on
the front panel will be amber until POST completes and then it will turn green. If a second
power supply is installed but NOT plugged into a power source, the AC status light on the power
supply will be out and the DC status light will be amber. If the second power supply IS plugged
into a power source, then both LEDs will be green.
ATTENTION
Power is supplied to the switch as soon as the first power supply is connected.
2. After POST is complete, verify that the switch power and status LEDs on the left of the port side
of the switch are green. Refer to Figure 1 on page 4 for the specific location of these LEDs.
Creating a serial connection
You perform all configuration tasks in this guide using a serial connection. If you need to know the
serial port pinouts, refer to “Serial port specifications” on page 41.
Complete the following steps to create a serial connection to the switch.
1. Connect the serial cable to the serial port on the switch and to an RS-232 serial port on the
workstation.
If the serial port on the workstation is RJ45 instead of RS-232, remove the adapter on the end
of the serial cable and insert the exposed RJ45 connector into the RJ45 serial port on the
workstation.
2. Open a terminal emulator application (such as HyperTerminal on a PC, or TERM, TIP, or Kermit
in a UNIX environment), and configure the application as follows:

Brocade 6520 configuration
Switch IP address
You can configure the Brocade 6520 with a static IP address, or you can use a Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server to set the IP address of the switch. DHCP is enabled by
default. The Brocade 6520 supports both IPv4 and IPv6. If you are using IPv6, consult the Fabric
OS Command Reference for details when issuing the ipaddrset command.
Using DHCP to set the IP address
When using DHCP, the Brocade 6520 obtains its IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway
address from the DHCP server. The DHCP client can only connect to a DHCP server that is on the
same subnet as the switch. If your DHCP server is not on the same subnet as the Brocade 6520,
use a static IP address.
Setting a static IP address
Complete the following steps to set a static IP address.
1. Log in to the switch using the default password (the default passsword is password).
2. Use the ipaddrset command to set the Ethernet IP address.
If you are going to use an IPv4 IP address, enter the IP address in dotted decimal notation as
prompted. As you enter a value for a line in the following example, the next line appears.
For instance, the Ethernet IP address appears first. When you enter a new IP address or simply
press Enter to accept the existing value, the Ethernet Subnetmask line appears.
In addition to the Ethernet IP address itself, you can set the Ethernet subnet mask, the
Gateway IP address, and whether to obtain the IP address by way of DHCP or not.
switch:admin> ipaddrset
Ethernet IP Address [192.168.74.102]:
Ethernet Subnetmask [255.255.255.0]:
Gateway IP Address [192.168.74.1]:
DHCP [Off]: off
If you are going to use an IPv6 address, enter the network information in semicolon-separated
notation as a standalone command.
switch:admin> ipaddrset -ipv6 --add 1080::8:800:200C:417A/64
IP address is being changed...Done.
Date and time settings
The Brocade 6520 maintains the current date and time inside a battery-backed real-time clock
(RTC) circuit. Date and time are used for logging events. Switch operation does not depend on the
date and time; a Brocade 6520 with an incorrect date and time value still functions properly.
However, because the date and time are used for logging, error detection, and troubleshooting, you
should set them correctly.
Time zones
You can set the time zone for the switch by name. You can also set country, city, or time zone
parameters.
12
Brocade 6520 Hardware Reference Manual
53-1002705-01
Brocade 6520 configuration
2
If the time zone is not set with the new options, the switch retains the offset time zone settings. The
tsTimeZone command includes an option to revert to the prior time zone format. For more
information about the --old option, refer to the Fabric OS Command Reference.
You can set the time zone for a switch using the tsTimeZone command. The tsTimeZone command
allows you to perform the following tasks:
• Display all of the time zones supported in the firmware
• Set the time zone based on a country and city combination or based on a time zone ID such as
PST
The time zone setting has the following characteristics:
• You can view the time zone settings. However, only those with administrative permissions can
set the time zones.
• The tsTimeZone setting automatically adjusts for Daylight Savings Time.
• Changing the time zone on a switch updates the local time zone setup and is reflected in local
time calculations.
• By default, all switches are in the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) time zone (0,0). If all switches
in a fabric are in one time zone, it is possible for you to keep the time zone setup at the default
setting.
• System services that have already started will reflect the time zone changes only after the next
reboot.
• Time zone settings persist across failover for high availability.
Local time synchronization
You can synchronize the local time of the principal or primary fabric configuration server (FCS)
switch to a maximum of eight external Network Time Protocol (NTP) servers. To keep the time in
your SAN current, it is recommended that the principal or primary FCS switch has its time
synchronized with at least one external NTP server. The other switches in the fabric will
automatically take their time from the principal or primary FCS switch.
All switches in the fabric maintain the current clock server value in nonvolatile memory. By default,
this value is the local clock server of the principal or primary FCS switch. Changes to the clock
server value on the principal or primary FCS switch are propagated to all switches in the fabric.
When a new switch enters the fabric, the time server daemon of the principal or primary FCS switch
sends out the addresses of all existing clock servers and the time to the new switch. If a switch with
Fabric OS 5.3.0 or later has entered the fabric, it will be able to store the list and the active servers;
pre-Fabric OS 5.3.0 switches will ignore the new list parameter in the payload and will update only
the active server address.
If the active NTP server configured is IPv6, then distributing the same information in the fabric will
not be possible to switches earlier than Fabric OS 5.3.0 because IPv6 is supported for Fabric OS
5.3.0 and later. The default value LOCL will be distributed to pre-Fabric OS 5.3.0 switches.
The tsClockServer command accepts multiple server addresses in IPv4, IPv6, or DNS name
formats. When multiple NTP server addresses are passed, tsClockServer sets the first obtainable
address as the active NTP server. The rest are stored as backup servers that can take over if the
active NTP server fails. The principal or primary FCS switch synchronizes its time with the NTP
server every 64 seconds.

Setting the date and time
Complete the following steps to set the date and time.
1. Log in to the switch using the default password (the default password is password).
2. Enter the date "mmddHHMMyy" command (the double quotation marks are required):
date "mmddHHMMyy"
The following values are used in the date command:
•
•
•
•
•
mm is the month; valid values are 01 through 12.
dd is the date; valid values are 01 through 31.
HH is the hour; valid values are 00 through 23.
MM is minutes; valid values are 00 through 59.
yy is the year; valid values are 00 through 99 (values greater than 69 are interpreted as
1970 through 1999, and values less than 70 are interpreted as 2000 through 2069).
Refer to the following example to first show the date and time and then change them.
switch:admin> date
Fri Sep 29 17:01:48 UTC 2007
switch:admin> date "0927123007"
Thu Sep 27 12:30:00 UTC 2007
switch:admin>
Setting time zones
You must perform the procedure on all switches for which the time zone must be set. However, you
only need to set the time zone once on each switch, because the value is written to nonvolatile
memory.
Use one of the two following procedures to set the time zone. The first procedure requires you to
select the actual time zone and the second requires you to select the country location of the
switch.
The following procedure describes how to set the current time zone using timezonename mode.
1. Log in to the switch using the default password (the default password is password).
2. Enter the tsTimeZone command as follows:
switch:admin> tstimezone [--interactive]/ [, timezonename]
Use timezonename to set the time zone by country/city or by time zone ID, such as PST.
The following example shows how to change the time zone to US/Central.
switch:admin> tstimezone
Time Zone : US/Pacific
switch:admin> tstimezone US/Central
switch:admin> tstimezone
Time Zone : US/Central
The following procedure describes how to set the current time zone using interactive mode to
Pacific Standard Time.
1. Enter the tsTimeZone command as follows:
switch:admin> tstimezone --interactive

2. You are prompted to select a general location from the list displayed.
Please identify a location so that time zone rules can be set correctly.
3. Enter the appropriate number from the list or Ctrl-D to quit.
4. At the prompt, select a country location from the list displayed.
5. At the prompt, enter the appropriate number to specify the time zone region from the list
displayed or Ctrl-D to quit.
Synchronizing local time using NTP
Perform the following steps to synchronize the local time using NTP.
1. Log in to the switch using the default password (the default password is password).
2. Enter the tsClockServer "ntp1;ntp2" command where ntp1 is the IP address or DNS name
of the first NTP server, which the switch must be able to access. The ntp2 value is the name of
the second NTP server and is optional. The entire operand “<ntp1;ntp2>” is optional; by
default, this value is LOCL, which uses the local clock of the principal or primary switch as the
clock server.
switch:admin> tsclockserver "132.163.135.131"
switch:admin> tsclockserver
132.163.135.131
switch:admin>
The following example shows how to set up more than one NTP server using a DNS name:
switch:admin> tsclockserver "10.32.170.1;10.32.170.2;ntp.localdomain.net"
Updating Clock Server configuration...done.
Updated with the NTP servers
Changes to the clock server value on the principal or primary FCS switch are
propagated to all switches in the fabric.
Brocade ISL Trunking
Brocade Inter-Switch Link (ISL) Trunking is optional software requiring a license that allows you to
create trunking groups of ISLs between adjacent switches. Up to eight FC ports on the Brocade
6520 can be used as a trunking group to achieve speeds up to 128 Gbps (256 Gbps full duplex) for
optimal bandwidth utilization and load balancing. For more information about Brocade ISL
Trunking, refer to the Fabric OS Administrator’s Guide.

LED activity interpretation
System activity and status can be determined through the activity of the LEDs on the switch.
Sometimes, the LEDs flash either of the colors during boot, POST, or other diagnostic tests. This is
normal; it does not indicate a problem unless the LEDs do not indicate a healthy state after all boot
processes and diagnostic tests are complete.
Brocade 6520 LEDs
The Brocade 6520 has the following LEDs:
•
•
•
•
One system status LED (bicolor: green/amber).
One power status LED (green).
Two Ethernet port LEDs (green).
One port status LED for each port on the switch (bicolor: green/amber). These LEDs are
arrayed above each pair of Fibre Channel ports.
• Two power supply status LEDs per power supply (AC indicator is bicolor: green/amber and DC
indicator is green).
• One fan status LED per fan (bicolor: green/amber).
NOTE
The serial console port LEDs do not light up at any time, even when a cable is inserted and the link
is active.
LED locations
Figure 3 shows the port side of the Brocade 6520. The port status LEDs for the FC ports are
arranged left and right to correspond to the upper and lower ports in each pair. Refer to Figure 1 for

POST and boot-up specifications
When the switch is turned on or rebooted, the switch performs power-on self-test (POST). Total
boot-up time with POST can be several minutes. POST can be omitted after subsequent reboots by
using the fastboot command or entering the diagDisablePost command to persistently disable
POST.
For more information about these commands, refer to the Fabric OS Command Reference.
POST
The success or failure results of the diagnostic tests that run during POST can be monitored
through LED activity, the error log, or the command line interface.
POST includes the following tasks:
• Conducts preliminary POST diagnostics.
• Initializes the operating system.
• Initializes hardware.
• Runs diagnostic tests on several functions, including circuitry, port functionality, memory,
statistics counters, and serialization.
Boot-up
In addition to POST, boot includes the following tasks after POST is complete:
• Performs universal port configuration.
• Initializes links.
• Analyzes fabric. If any ports are connected to other switches, the switch participates in a fabric
configuration.
• Obtains a domain ID and assigns port addresses.
• Constructs unicast routing tables.
• Enables normal port operation.

Interpreting POST results
Interpreting POST results
POST is a system check that is performed each time the switch is powered on, rebooted, or reset.
During POST, the LEDs flash either amber or green. Any errors that occur during POST are listed in
the error log.
Complete the following steps to determine whether POST completed successfully and whether any
errors were detected.
1. Verify that the switch LEDs indicate that all components are healthy.
Refer to Table 7 and Table 8 for descriptions and interpretations of LED patterns. If one or
more LEDs do not display a healthy state, verify that the LEDs on the switch are not set to
“beacon” by entering the switchShow command to detect if beaconing is active.
2. Verify that the switch prompt displays on the terminal of a computer workstation connected to
the switch.
If there is no switch prompt when POST completes, press Enter. If the switch prompt still does
not display, try opening a Telnet session or accessing the switch through another management
tool. If this is not successful, the switch did not successfully complete POST. Contact your
switch supplier for support.
3. Review the switch system log for errors. Any errors detected during POST are written to the
system log, accessible through the errShow command.
For information about all referenced commands, and on accessing the error log, refer to the Fabric
OS Administrator’s Guide. For information about error messages, refer to the Fabric OS Message
Reference.
Brocade 6520 maintenance
The Brocade 6520 is designed for high availability and low failure; it does not require any regular
physical maintenance. It includes diagnostic tests and field-replaceable units, described in the
following sections.
Installing an SFP+ transceiver
The Brocade 6520 supports only Brocade-branded 8 Gbps and 16 Gbps SFP+ optical transceivers.
For the Fibre Channel connections, the Brocade 6520 uses SFP+ transceivers that support any
combination of Short Wavelength (SWL), Long Wavelength (LWL), and Extended Long Wavelength
(ELWL) optical media.
If you use an unqualified transceiver, the switchShow command output shows the port in a
Mod_Inv state. Fabric OS also logs the issue in the system error log.
For this task, refer to Figure 5 or Figure 6.
Complete the following steps to install an SFP+ transceiver.

1. Making sure that the bail (wire handle) is in the unlocked position, position the optical
transceiver so that the key is oriented correctly to the port. Insert the transceiver into the port
until it is firmly seated and the latching mechanism clicks; then close the bail.
The 16 Gbps SFP+ transceivers do not have bails. Use the pull tab on the 16 Gbps SFP+
transceivers to help push the transceiver into the port. Do not push too hard on the tab itself
becasue it can bend.
Transceivers are keyed so that they can only be inserted with the correct orientation. If a
transceiver does not slide in easily, ensure that it is correctly oriented.
2. Position a cable so that the key (the ridge on one side of the cable connector) is aligned with
the slot in the transceiver. Insert the cable into the transceiver until the latching mechanism
clicks.
Cables are keyed so that they can be inserted in only one way. If a cable does not slide in
easily, ensure that it is correctly oriented.
NOTE
Each SFP+ transceiver has a gold-plated PCB-edge connector on the bottom. The correct position
to insert an SFP+ transceiver into the upper row of ports is with the gold-plated edge down. The
correct position to insert an SFP+ transceiver into the lower row of ports is with the gold-plated
edge up.

Diagnostic tests
In addition to POST, Fabric OS includes diagnostic tests to help you troubleshoot the hardware and
firmware. This includes tests of internal connections and circuitry, fixed media, and the
transceivers and cables in use.
The tests are implemented by command, either through a Telnet session or through a serial
console connection to the switch. Some tests require the ports to be connected by external cables,
to allow diagnostics to verify the serializer/deserializer interface, transceiver, and cable. Some
tests require loopback plugs.
Diagnostic tests run at link speeds of 2, 4, 8, 10, or 16 Gbps depending on the speed of the link
being tested and the type of port.
NOTE
Diagnostic tests might temporarily lock the transmit and receive speed of the links during diagnostic
testing.
For information about specific diagnostic tests, refer to the Fabric OS Troubleshooting and
Diagnostics Guide.
Brocade 6520 management
You can use the management functions built into the Brocade 6520 to monitor the fabric topology,
port status, physical status, and other information to help you analyze switch performance and to
accelerate system debugging.
The Brocade 6520 automatically performs power-on self-test (POST) each time it is turned on. Any
errors are recorded in the system error log. For more information about POST, refer to “POST and
boot-up specifications” on page 21.

Removal and replacement introduction
NOTE
Read the “Installation and safety considerations” before servicing.
The field-replaceable units (FRUs) in the Brocade 6520 can be removed and replaced without
special tools. The Brocade 6520 can continue operating during the FRU replacement if the
conditions specified in the procedures are followed.
DANGER
The procedures in this manual are for qualified service personnel.
Before beginning replacement
CAUTION
This document describes how to change field-replaceable units (FRUs) for units with either a
port-side air exhaust or a port-side air intake. You must replace a failed unit with the same type of
unit.
This applies to both power supplies and fans.
A new FRU must have the same part number (P/N) as the FRU being replaced. The
manufacturing P/N is located on the top of the FRU.
You can use external labels as a guide. Refer to Figure 7. Both the power supply and fan FRUs are
labeled with an airflow symbol on the faceplate to indicate whether the assembly takes in or
exhausts air. The label also appears on the top of the assembly.
ATTENTION
All fans and power supplies must have the same airflow symbol (E or I) to be compatible with each
other.

AIRFLOW
FIGURE 7
AIRFLOW
Examples of airflow symbols
The green E symbol indicates an exhaust unit. This unit pulls air in from the port side of the switch
and exhausts it out the non-port side. This is also called front-to-back airflow or forward airflow.
This symbol should appear on FRUs with part numbers ending with -F.
The orange I symbol indicates an intake unit. This unit pulls air in from the non-port side of the
switch and exhausts it out the port side. This is also called back-to-front airflow or reverse airflow.
This symbol should appear on FRUs with part numbers ending with -R.
The chassisShow command will indicate either “forward” or “reverse” airflow.
If one fan fails, the remaining fans go to high speed to maintain proper cooling until the failed fan is
replaced.
If a mismatched power supply or fan is installed by mistake, a critical error message is sent to the
console. The message will be similar to the following:
CRITICAL HIL-1611 MISMATCH in PSU/FAN Air Flow direction. Replace PSU with fan air flows in
same direction. System will be shut down in 2 minutes.
Power supply removal and replacement
The Brocade 6520 has two power supplies, as displayed in Figure 2. The Fabric OS identifies the
power supplies from left to right on the non-port side as power supply #2 and power supply #1.
CAUTION
Disassembling any part of the power supply voids the part warranty and regulatory certifications.
There are no user-serviceable parts inside the power supply. Because the cooling system relies
on pressurized air, do not leave either of the power supply slots empty longer than two minutes
while the switch is operating. If a power supply fails, leave it in the switch until it can be replaced.
Maintain both power supplies in operational condition to provide redundancy.
Refer to Table 8 on page 20 for the power supply status LED colors, behaviors, and actions
required, if any.
Determining the need to replace a power supply
Use one of the following methods to determine the status of the power supplies:
• Check the power supply AC status and DC status LEDs. Both should be green (refer to “LED
locations” on page 17). If the DC status LED is amber, there is no power on the cord.
• In Web Tools, click the Power Status icon.

Power supply removal and replacement
Replacing a power supply
Complete the following steps to replace a power supply in a Brocade 6520. Refer to Figure 9 for
this procedure.
1. To leave the Brocade 6520 in service while replacing a power supply, verify that the other
power supply (the one not being replaced) has been powered on for at least four seconds and
has a steady green status LED.
2. Unplug the power cord from the power supply that is being replaced.
3. Push the locking tab to the left and hold it there while using the handle on the power supply to
pull it straight out and away from the chassis. Pull the power supply out slowly to avoid catching
a finger on the locking tab.
4. Slide the new power supply into the chassis until the locking tab engages.
CAUTION
Do not force the installation. If the power supply does not slide in easily, ensure that the power
supply is correctly oriented before continuing.
CAUTION
If you observe that the switch has powered down after two minutes after a power supply
replacement, it is likely because the new power supply has a mismatched airflow.
5. Plug the power cord into the power supply to power on the unit.
If the power circuit was on before the replacement, the power supply will immediately attempt
to power up.

6. Verify that the LEDs on the new power supply display steady green while the Brocade 6520 is
operating (refer to Table 8). If the LEDs are not steady green, ensure that the power supply is
securely installed and seated properly.
Optionally, if using the command line interface (CLI), enter the psShow command at the
command line prompt to display the status. You can also use the chassisShow command. The
power supply status can also be viewed using the Web Tools application.
Fan removal and replacement
The Brocade 6520 has three fans as displayed in Figure 2. The Fabric OS identifies the fan
locations from left to right as fan #3, fan #2, and fan #1.
CAUTION
Disassembling any part of the fan voids the part warranty and regulatory certifications. There are
no user-serviceable parts inside the fan. Because the cooling system relies on pressurized air, do
not leave any of the fan slots empty longer than two minutes while the switch is operating. If a fan
fails, leave it in the switch until it can be replaced.
Maintain all three fans in operational condition to provide redundancy.

Complete the following steps to replace an SFP+ transceiver.
1. Making sure that the bail (wire handle) on an 8 or 10 Gbps transceiver is in the unlocked or
open position, position the optical transceiver so that the key is oriented correctly to the port.
Insert the transceiver into the port until it is firmly seated and the latching mechanism clicks.
The 16 Gbps SFP+ transceivers do not have bails. Use the pull tab on the 16 Gbps SFP+
transceivers to carefully push the transceiver into the port. Grasp the tab near the body of the
transceiver to reduce the chances of bending the tab.
Transceivers are keyed so that they can only be inserted with the correct orientation. If a
transceiver does not slide in easily, ensure that it is correctly oriented.
2. Position a cable so that the key (the ridge on one side of the cable connector) is aligned with
the slot in the transceiver. Insert the cable into the transceiver until the latching mechanism
clicks.
Cables are keyed so that they can be inserted in only one way. If a cable does not slide in
easily, ensure that it is correctly oriented.
